The food is unquestionably outstanding. 2 years ago we ate there 4 times out of 7 days, this year we have eaten there once out of 10 days. A young waiter, Alessandro, had the most shocking attitude. We paid cash and he did not bring any change, we had to ask for the change, he was very irritated with us,... More

Tagliolini con tartufo excellent, very fine tagliate afterwards, good wines and a very enthusiastic service made us enjoy a wonderful evening. Highly recommended.

This must be one of the best restaurants in SML with a bit of formality (but still relaxing ambience enough). We had Parma ham + melon, octopus + potato salad, minestrone Genovese for starter followed by grilled langostine (huge, can't have this size in the U.K.), minestrone Genovese and raw fish assortment (tuna tartar, langostine, sea bass, red prawn). They... More

I have been going to Santa Margherita since I was a kid. Antonio is still the best. starters are good, past is fresh made, desserts are made by one of the ladies serving. Wonderful sorbets.

We asked the receptionist at the Imperiale for a recommendation and were very pleased with the whole experience at Antonio's. As the weather was particularly hot we elected to sit inside although outside would have had more character. The food and service were both impeccable with very reasonable prices. Don't hesitate to go yourself.

It's a little off the beaten path but much better than the restaurants we tried down by the waterfront. We tried several of the raw fish appetizers a cooked black fish with shaved truffles which was a special. All were excellent. Our favorite pastas were the ravioli stuffed with pine nut and walnut sauce, seafood lasagna and pasta with white... More

This is a high end restaurant with elegant service and good food. It isn't always easy to please my food tastes as I value vegetables and well seasoned food without the use of cheese, cream, (allergies) or sugar. But I did fine here and would highly recommend you try it once if the budget can take it.

Antonio's was a very pleasant surprise offering really good service and high quality food. The family of 4 went to Antonio's with the purpose of a good sea food meal and we were not disappointed. The menu included fresh lobster, a fantastic shellfish salad and fresh wild strawberries in a nice outdoor seating. The three courses including apertisers, bottle of... More

We've been advised to walk to this restaurant as it is few hundred meters from the port, as it is not easy to find there parking space. the place is usually packed. we arrived around 10PM but that was not a problem; the friendly team greeted us warmly and offered aperitifs and focaccia that they bake in their house oven....
