Best meal in SML

The best meal we had in Santa Margherita. The main dining room of the restaurant is tucked in the back of a courtyard. Formal dining room but the food was excellent and the staff was very friendly. One of the best steaks I have had and an excellent mixed seafood salad.

We had a fabulous dinner at Antonio's. The place was filled with locals celebrating family events. I had seemed clams and mussels as an appetizer. My husband had a seafood salad. We actually each ordered a pasta course which we shared at the suggestion of the waiter. He served each different seafood pasta separately on two plates. We were full... More

We happened into Antonio's and found a little piece of heaven but also understand that a slow night in itself can result in excellent service. The friendly, attentive owner and a truly masterful waiter led us through the menu and were even willing to accomodate my husband's specific request. We loved watching the handmade dressing being created at our table... More

We went for an "authentic Italian" evening and we got more. We were waited on hand and foot. The menu was explained to us. We were treated to an exceptional pasta/seafood entree which was so delicate. We all thoroughly enjoyed out meals without exception and I cannot recommend. It is a little expensive but if you want something special and... More

I went here on October 8th, 2014 for a fixed price for $20 where you had a choice of a Primi, a Secondi, a dessert and a glass of wine. When ordering you didn't get these choices but we were told you had to have for Primi spaghetti with mussels and fish wrapped with potatoes for Secondi. We had to... More

We made reservations that morning. We were among the first to arrive about 7:15 pm. They led us past the mostly empty tables to seat us in the back corner. The wait staff starred at us like we were from Mars or something. The waiter was most arrogant. He even thought it was his place to correct my husband's Italian.... More

Waiter was rude. Made fun of Americans. Told us that Americans are fat because the have olive oil with their bread. Really? That's just stupid. Especially since not one person in our group was overweight. Will never visit this restaurant again. That waiter ruined a birthday dinner. It is also very sad that this restaurant was recommended by our hotel.

Highly recommended restaurant. Excellent service. Nice atmosphere. Seafood is great, as well as pasta. Good wine list. We were there two times on a recent trip and if we will visit the area we will definitely go again. One of the best in Portofino area

Excellent fresh pasta, served with fresh seafood. All this attended by a friendly and courteous staff who are more than happy to help you. Easily the best fine dining establishment in town.

we started with a cooked fish with vegetables and swordfish as main courses. Food is good, nothing special. It is a nice place with excelent attention. The price is little bit high.
