We visited this place on the recommendation of this site. What the site fails to warn you is the rudeness of the manager. We looked at the menu and explained that my wife had a severe dairy and egg allergy. We asked what the pasta was made of and you could tell at a glance that he didn't want the... More

Used Tripadvisor and chose Reve Cafe at no 2 and it lived up to the rating. Very friendly staff, lovely bread, lovely low value wines and beautiful food. The Gnocchi was fantastic especially. in fact everything we had was great. A nice quiet location in a small piazza off the main strip with inside and outside seating. I would most... More

The restaurant is in a small square with some tables outside. It appears to be run by a team of two. Very friendly and helpful. Prices are fair, we had 4 dishes to share and a bottle of wine for 70 eur. The food itself is good but not great. In my opinion they overuse olives that bring a too... More

We can highly recommend this restaurant. We tried 3 other places until we found this. For the rest we just ate there. I would eat there every night. The service is very professional and the food out of this world. It's a small place make reservations or go early. Eg at 7. They know and love food. Once u been... More

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
