Our recipes (and our family) began in Genoa, a small port city in Luguria - a region of Northern Italy. Using recipes from our homeland we established the first Genova Delicatessen in Oakland, California in 1926. Homemade and kitchen fresh, Genova Delicatessen evokes the true quality of traditional Italian food.
