Simple but nice Italian food

Our receptionist recommended this restaurant. We really liked the Italian atmosphere, there is no outside terrace though. We liked the Trofie a la Portofino and the verdure ripieni, the pesto and pasta are homemade.

This family owned restaurant has been in business since 1964 and it's easy to see why. All the dishes are prepared by Papa (and Mama?) and are expertly done. We went there twice and were not disappointed either time. The son, Igor, spoke English and was very helpful in dealing with our many allergies and restrictions. One night hubby and... More

Ate at this family run establishment last year as it had traditional home cooked food, and enjoyed it. Went back in the evening that we arrived here in Santa Margherita this year, and were not quite as impressed. The minestrone was good, as were my husband's stuffed sardines. The socca, usually a highlight, was still delicious, but very oily. The... More

This was our 8th restaurant that we've tried in Santa Margherita, including several at the top of the tripadvisor lists, and my husband said it was the best. It is a family run restaurant, - you won't get cordon bleu food here, but well cooked real Italian traditional food. We were served quickly by a charming English speaking gentleman, our... More

We arrived here for lunch before making our way to Portofino. There was a mix of locals and tourist in the restaurant. We had difficulty with the specials board as it was all written in Italian, but we manned to 'google' some of the items, and the waiter who spoke good english helped to recommend some dishes. We ordered a... More

We have taken away various things from this place, as an alternative to dining out; it is a no-nonsense and fair priced place with well tasting food; a fair understanding of Italian will help

this was the worst meal we had during our travels to Italy. The house red was terrible, the pasta starter with green pesto was swimming in water and my wife's main was a re-heated mix of some sort of tarte called Misto Torte which had been made many hours before, probably in the morning so it was very soggy.

This is so difficult to review, because we went twice during our May visit. The first time it was very good with great and attentive service. the second time it was average only, with rather neglectful service. Ligurian specialities are listed on a board. Do try the delicious farinata.

"Home made like" food in a family ambiance. Our server made great recommendations and food was excellent. Very typical Genovese cuisine and reasonable prices. Will come back anytime. It is worthy saying that we were the only tourists at that time. The place was full with locals. Located in City Center.
