Why choose our pesto?
Basilico di Pra’ is considered the best basil for the production of the Genoese pesto all over the world. Thanks to the microclimate of the Ligurian Riviera, it grows with its unique aroma. After its harvesting, the basil is transferred to the production site where it is processed and turned into pesto!
For almost 2 centuries, our family has been dedicated to the cultivation of basil and, most recently, to the production of pesto.
It is here, on these hills between the sea and the sky, that Pesto di Pra’, a product of the highest quality, grows.
The uniqueness of our product comes from the use of our basil, the accurate selection of the ingredients and from our competence in selecting and treating them properly. Our Pesto is a fresh product without preservatives, which is produced following the traditional Genoese recipe.

Our recipe for the year:
Genoese Pesto is the Ligurian product that best represents our region around the world.
A sauce rich in history and tradition, whose recipe comes from our ancestors who followed the ancient ritual of using the ingredients wisely in order to create the perfect balance of aromas that make Pesto di Pra’ unique.
Today, our duty is to recreate that ancient taste by making an authentic pesto using simple ingredients as those used for homemade pesto. Our pesto gets its unique aroma thanks to the basil cultivated in Pra’.
