Try the Cinque Terre DOC - a really good white.
Sciacchetrà - the dessert wine is expensive, but if you can afford it, try a glass with dessrt one night. A really nice, Tokay-like wine.

Buridda - spicy, fish stew
Crostata - (I think) cake with layers of jam and chocolate
Rock cakes - great for taking on a hike, and nibbling on throughout the day

And of course, pasta, pesto, limoncello and gelati!
