Northern Italian cuisine in the heart of Geelong

Caruggi is the medieval centre of Genoa, translating as little alleyway in Genovese dialect, it is the labyrinth that meanders from the old port arcades of Sottoripe through ancient Genoa connecting small squares and opening up to reveal Cathedrals. The Caruggi have always housed small artisanal shops and many still serve typical dishes and foods as they have done for 100’s of years.

In the true spirit of the Caruggi we have lots of small nooks for you to settle into whether it be for an afternoon coffee and lemoncello after a gallery visit or a pre-theatre dinner before a show at Geelong arts centre.

Come and discover classic Ligurian dishes including the simple but delicious Focaccia col formaggio which originates from the town of Recco.
