We were staying at the Villa Anita, and this restaurant was recommended by the hotel owner. We all enjoyed our dinner- pasta and seafood was fresh and prepared well. Restaurant was busy, but just added to the atmosphere. We went back 2 nights later, but there were no tables available. Suggest you get a reservation.

We went here on the recommendation of our B&B. It is a lovely family restaurant, where we were warmly welcomed. We began with the mussels and had the whole baked fish for our main course. As it is hard to get fresh fish where we live, we are always so happy to have such excellent fish as we experienced here.... More

Lucky to get in without a reservation. Last table. Loved the atmosphere, mixture of nationalities, from me solo to group of 10 Italians. Service was fine, good selection on the menu. Been in 5 places to eat here in Santa Margherita & although not the best I was well satisifed with both the food & the price. Started with Mussels... More

It was great that we were accepted without reservations. Very quiet and did not feel upbeat. Food was mediocre at best. Ate at 4 restaurants in santa Margaretta, and this was the only one we were not satisfied with. Try elsewhere.

Went here with the family for my birthday. Looked at our options on Trip Advisor and the reviews were just too good not to ignore and they lived up to them. Being in Santa Margherita we did consider an outdoor restaurant however followed our instincts and we made the right decision. We reserved which is highly recommended and many were... More

Just back from a gorgeous birthday dinner with my husband and Miss 4. This food here is outstanding and we are so pleased we read the TA reviews and went here. You will likely need to book (we went the night before to book) and whilst we were there they turned quite a number of people away. Tables had reserved... More

This is a quaint, little mom and son operated restaurant. It was recommended to us by Sondro at Villa Anita . The service and ambiance were pleasant. The food was typical Italian home style cooking and very pleasing to the palate. Prices were reasonable. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our night of dining at Lampura

A small restaurant nearby the Hotel Villa Anita with excellent food and a lovely atmosphere. Both the pasta and the fish were excellent -- I particularly enjoyed the mussels.

While staying at the Minerva Hotel in Santa Margherita Ligure, we asked for a dining suggested and they directed us to the restaurant. All I can say is wow. The food was excellent. It's a small family run restaurant a few blocks off the main street in the city. I had the spinach ravioli and it was probably the best... More
