Went on recommendation of the hotel. Arrived 30 mins early for our reservation and they still sat us. Service was a little on the slow side, but fairly typical for Italian dinners. Food was good. Enjoyed our appetizers and entrees thoroughly. Wine list was good. Prices were very good for the area. Tables on the back side of the restaurant... More

I should have read the reviews before I went to this restaurant. We only arrived in Santa Margherita Ligure about 7.00 pm after a long car drive. We went down the street and saw this lively restaurant and thought that it looked nice. We went in and ordered our meal and another couple sat at next to our table about... More

And I wasn't disappointed Then we had fresh grilled fish with vegetables. Again excellent - the fish was beautifully cooked and very tasty. Not cheap but fresh fish never... More

Lunchtime in Santa Margherita. Found this restaurant walking around the harbor. Great view. Friendly very efficient service. Food was basic but excellent. We had mussels in butter and garlic. Large portion and perfectly cooked. For main we both had veal scallopine, one with lemon and the other with wine. Both perfectly cooked and excellent. Would definitely come back.

I went there on my last night in Santa Margherita. We hadn't made a reservation anywhere and actually almost begged for a table near the port. I can say that I was positively surprised. We ordered really a lot and local wines. The starters were very tasty and the lobster spaghetti for main was good but the lobster not the... More

My wife and I decided to visit here on a Tuesday evening for dinner, as many other nearby restaurants are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. We were shown to our table, and knew what we wanted to order within a couple of minutes. However, we were made to wait 15 minutes before we were attended to. The english couple adjacent... More

It was good food at better than average local prices. The last time we went for lunch. The place was full of locals, that tells a story! The waitress took her time to explain what different things were. The food was good value.....especially in comparison to other local places.

Ate here with my wife. Her sea bass fish was ok but my fillet steak was below average. The potatoes that came with the steak were also below average. The service wad friendly but slow. We sat outside beside the port which was the best part of the meal.

This place is a discovery. Friendly staff, excellent food, good value and big selection of wines. I even hang out for coffee in the afternoons and use their WiFi. I love this place. Try the fish soup, or the Dorado oven-baked in salt. Even the simple seafood salad is something. I will be there again in 8 months...
