Just enjoyed the best lunch we've had in our 7 days in this lovely town. Would have passed by the restaurant but couldn't resist the great aromas coming from the kitchen which opens onto the lane way next door to the restaurant door ( the cute little doggie outside also an attraction). Yummy food, great friendly helpful service. Felt very... More

We ate here last week, - the restaurant was deserted for most of the time we were there. There is no outside seating, and inside is tatty, in need of renovation. The food was ok, nothing sensational. My whole baked sea bass came in foil, and was quite pleasant. My husband's tuna steak came with a kind of mint jelly... More

We visited the city for 18 days. Had fabulous meals each of the 4 times we family owned restaurant. Delicate, delicious , fresh seafood always seemed available! Sweet waitress, minimal English, maximum charm. Find this out of the way alley/street. You won't regret it.

You cannot come here without eating at this restaurant. Wonderful staff, incredible food. Made us feel like family. Never knew I liked pesto until I had the house specialty. Incredible!

We stumbled onto this little gem of a restaurant and had a fantastic lunch. Mom was busy cooking so one or two dishes came out at a time but our group was open to sharing and we were glad we did. The minestrone soup was delicious as was the black tagallettere with sea bass and saffron. Our servers, the daughter... More

We visited this restaurant after reading the reviews and was not disappointed. We did book but it was very quiet the night we went only about 8 people in total. However it did not spoil the atmosphere. As previously said in reviews it is family operated and great service. The Father looked after us as did the son both extremely... More

I last visited this restaurant in September 2012, and gave it an excellent review. On the basis of that experience I booked a table for our last night in Santa Margherita, as a climax to our week's stay. the restaurant has changed hands since 2012, and rather than being the culminating highlight of our visit it was the worst meal...

We were passing by this restaurant and were both convinced that we want to eat here tonight. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and the owners are very sympathic. For starters, we had both a homemade strudel, then pasta (with housewine) and for dessert a semifreddo. The food was very tasty and real Italian food! The owner cooks the menues... More

June 2014. Saw this restaurant as we walked into town from the railway station, and ended up coming back for lunch a couple of hours later. We were one of only two tables, perhaps because its a bit off the main thoroughfare. We were not disapponted. Best mozarella and tomatoes ever. Lovely pasta and fish. Recommended.

I went here on April 30, 2014 based on the Trip Advisor reviews. I also took 7 of my newfound friends traveling with a group. The food was o.k. to good--not great! The service was horrible! All 8 of us were brought our food one at a time. The first few were finished eating by the time the last got... More
