Great food . Good service with time to explain the menu and the specials one of which was pheasant ravioli which was superb . The fresh pesto as a starter and the baby squid as a special main were also excellent

This little gem in an alley is a great place to eat if you are looking for some really good seafood, especially the anchovies, octopus, and amberjack! The three kids ranging from ages 4 to 15 all loved it. They liked it so much they asked to go twice in a row. They also have a nice wine selection and... More

The restaurant is set back from the street, and we stopped in to escape the holiday mobs dining at the waterfront cafes. I ordered the sea bass with potatoes, and we were immediately hooked. We had 6 or 7 meals out in our week at Santa Margherita Ligure, 4 of them at the Reve Cafe. Great place; great food; and... More

Happily nested in the middle of a cozy alley, this restaurant offers superb service combined with tasty food and great interior design. The pansotti were fresh and had a distinctly homemade touch. The tagliata came with sweet and red onions and sour herbs, which were delicious. The meat itself could have been more tender; nevertheless it did not lack taste.... More

We ate at Reve Cafe two nights on our 6 night stay in Santa Margherita. It was wonderful. The service was excellent and the waiter has a personality that is enjoyable and inviting (and he speaks English very well despite his denials), The menu is not extensive, but has a number of excellent meals. We enjoyed the pasta with local... More

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
