Good place to eat.

The food and service were very good. My wife liked the pitchers they served the wine and water in, we asked if they were for sale and they were. We now have a pretty pitcher in our kitchen to remind us of a wonderful restaurant and trip.

Great staff, wonderful view, and very good food. Eat outside on the terrace and enjoy the wine. The seafood risotto is for 2 and was so good.

Disclaimer: I'm a solo woman,otherwise known in restaurant lingo as "license to treat poorly". The server was clearly irritated at having to serve me, but I did my best to disarm her and smile, asking for her suggestions and mostly taking them. My tuna appetizer (her suggestion, not my first choice) was well flavored but the tuna was overcooked beyond... More

We were a group of five and just assumed there would be lots of pasta options. The fish was good but we had had better for far less money

This restaurant is just above the fisherman's area where their daily catches are processed. You walk up a few stairs and it is right there.They actually own this restaurant we were told. The seafood selections were plentiful and the menu told you if they were local fresh caught, local frozen, farmed etc.Most of the dishes were served with a pasta.... More

Stopped by this restaurant on our way walking back from Portofino. The service is friendly and attentive, but not overbearing. House wine more than adequate. Food was well prepared and includes local Ligurian items. Good seafood at good prices. Recommended.

Tourist trap - poor food, long waiting. Only positive is location. We spent over an hour waiting for our main course. Decided to skip dessert and go to one of the great gellaterias instead.

First dinner in S. Margherita, not impressed. I would say the waitress was busy so maybe some excuse for the long delay on EVERYTHING but the other waitress was clearly keeping up more. No bread (asked three or four times). No water (again 3 or 4 times asked). I ordered the Fettuchini with porcini. Average, definitely nothing special. Pasta with... More
