Small but really nicely decorated restaurant - out of the way up a side street that you could easily miss, but worth finding. Menus only in Italian and all locals there apart from ourselves, but waiter translated the menu for us and was very attentive throughout. It was a delicious meal - probably cost a bit more than other restaurants... More

We shared the sculpo salad and some pasta, followed by a fish main course ans everything was really delicious. The choice of wine isn't too big but good. The ambience is very nice. Good food for two persons around 100€.

Really had an enjoyable evening in this quaint restaurant. It is like dining in someone’s front room, not many tables but a very charming place, with nice clean lines. The food was very good, some interesting dishes, all local produce. The waiter was very helpful and happy to be of service, nothing was too much trouble. A really atmospheric restaurant,... More

We passed this place looking for food and thought we'd give it a try, and boy were we pleased we did so... It is very charming situated in an alley just off the main road and very nicely decorated. The waiter was super friendly and definitely knew his stuff. We were served good tasty wine from the local area, and... More

We visited Santa Margherita in August 2014 and loved everything about the city and place. However, like any other tourist destination there are lots of options for food and restaurants - but not all are good! Reve was recommended to us by our host, as a place for a romantic dinner with great food and wine. It was everything that... More

This is a cute place, on a tiny side street off the main drag along the harbor. We sat outdoors, and had fun with the good-humored waiter, who introduced each course, "Ladies and gentlemen..." He was very proud of the home-made pasta, as he should have been--it was great. We very much enjoyed savoring the ravioli with pheasant and fettucini... More

The food is nice and I order ravioli which is not in the menu. I was not disapointed. For the service at the beginning when the restaurant has a few customers it was seem good and attentive. But since more customers are coming these are gone. At the end for just checking the bill, it took more than half an... More
