Cervo (Liguria)

Cervo is a small, ancient town and comune, built on top of a hill along the Italian Riviera in the province of Imperia. It has approximately 1,200 inhabitants. One of its main attractions is the fine baroque church of St. John the Baptist, overlooking the sea. The Romanesque Oratorio di Santa Caterina contain 18th-century frescoes. The medieval Clavesana stronghold hosts the Ethnographic Museum of Western Liguria and the Palazzo Viale-Citati.

Recipes From Liguria


A delicious autumn recipe for tender gnocchi made with chestnut flour from Laurel Evan’s cookbook “Liguria the Cookbook: Recipes from the Italian Riviera,”. 


A thick vegetable and legume soup made with chickpeas and chard, perfect for the onset of fall. 


Traditionally, this dish was prepared at the height of the oil-pressing season in Liguria, offered by the olive growers as a gesture of celebration to those who helped with the harvest.


It’s easy to default to thinking of Ligurian cuisine as “green.” But venture into the shaded foothills of the Ligurian Alps in the western part of the region, and you’ll find la cucina bianca, or “white cooking.”
