While the hotel always suggested that we go to Portofino, we like to be able to walk to and from dinner. We asked for something a little upscale but casual and Reve fit the bill. The restaurant is small as are many in the area but comfortable and casual. We found the wait staff, made up of one waiter and... More

I found this restaurant at TripAdvisor and the reviews were so good that my husband and I decided to try. Well.... we had one of the best dinner during our visit to Italy. The waiter was very friendly and helpful. We had the tuna tartar to start, pasta and sea bass with couscous ... everything was delicious! I highly recommend... More

We stumbled across this beautifully decorated and romantic restaurant hidden in a side street. The waiter was friendly and very attentive. The fish was excellent and we regret that we did not have enough time to try the desserts.

My review title reflects the friendly waiter's grand presentation of everything from the menu to the splendid food. We sat outside in the little closed road which made for a good atmosphere. The room inside is delightful. We mainly followed the waiter's recommendations and enjoyed the pasta and main course - well designed recipes executed and presented well. The flavour... More

We are locals and go here often. Can be a bit tricky to find. It it at the back of a small courtyard right on the sea front in the port are. Look for the small fish market and it is next door. Lovely decor and warm service. If nice weather you can sit outside. For antipasti try the butterfly... More

We're out driving by the coast and decided to stop by for lunch at S. Margherita. Tucked back a bit from the main road was this little restaurant all in white. I had this delicious lightly seared prawns for appetizer and seafood ravioli with a beautiful house white wine. I really regret not asking what the wine was but such... More

First the restaurant looked nice, but then it started to feel like you are eating in a furniture and decoration shop. Some of the items seemed to be for sale. Service was very nice. Some of the food was ok, part of it we didn't like. Salmon tartar tasted like salmon had already seen its best days.

We came here on recommendation from our hotel and it was fantastic! Beautiful restaurant, chic, and cosy with the added benefit that the service was top notch! It's a small restaurant so do book a table as it's well worth it. The dishes are mainly fish so if that's not your kind of thing then the menu is a little... More

We had dinner at Reve our first night in Santa Margherita and were not disappointed. It's off the main street with outdoor dining. The view isn't spectacular, and you get a bit of road noise and foot traffic, but the food and service made up for it. The service was attentive, and heand provided good suggestions about the specialties. My... More
