In the busy strip in Santa Emilio is one of the best restaurants. Peple may think it is a touristic area with many tourist traps, not Emilio. The pizza is very good but the traditional Ligurian fishes are even better. Try the Pansoti with walnut sauce, like the ones grandma makes. Prices are competitive for a non pizza meal rarely...

We went to Da Emilio after reading Trip Advisor reviews and liked it so much we went two nights in a row whilst in Santa Margherita. They opened early, perfect for us with three small kids. Both nights they made our boys a pizza that wasn't on the menu. We had the mussels, which were a generous size for an... More

I had one of the biggest bowls of mussels that I have ever been served. I think I counted about 50. It came with a garlic wine sauce that was great. we came back the second night and had their pizzas which were quite tasty as well.

In early August my wife and I were searching for lunch in Santa Margarita at 3:00 p.m. Unfortunately, most restaurants have very limited menus after 2:30. We did not want pizza or gelato, therefore we chose Emilio's. The decision was correct, and we went on to eat lunch there 4 days consecutively. The food was the best I experienced in... More

We travel each year to Italy. I crave the Seafood Risotto created here. My tongue and mouth jumps for joy and I am salivating before the meal arrives. We have been coming each year since 2004. Cinzia and the staff are so hospitable, they treat us better than some family. I have booked the restaurant before my accommodation in the... More

We really liked the food here, the service was great, they do not rush you and will go out of their way if you request something not on the menu or modified which is nice, we went three times because we felt so welcome there and the food was very good.

I was told that this restaurant was good. And, after having had a very nice scampi (Langoustines) dish. I purposely choose the simplest preparation possible to test the freshness of the main ingredient and I was not disappointed. My girlfriend had a pizza, which seemed Ok but I did not taste so cannot comment on that. I would recommend it... More

We have visited Santa Margherita with the group of friends for an extended weekend in May. After falling in love with da Emilio at a first bite, we ate there every day for four days. Rafael made the experience even more memorable by serving us some after meal aperitifs, and judging their sizes, he definitely put his heart into it.... More
