This is a very attractive restaurant overlooking the harbor. Good for people and boat watching. Attentive and pleasant staff. The spaghetti alla vongole is about the best we have ever had. It had a simple light sauce with a touch of sweet fresh tomatoes. It would be hard to imagine a better version. Grilled langoustines and shrimp were tasty and... More

Suggested by a local, we went there to escape the expensive Portofino eateries and were not disappointed. Their crudo to start was Piu fresco (most fresh)- 2 kinds of raw fish and gamberoni, with a bit of pepper, olive oil and lemon (A-). We ordered Orrata, a white local fish, simply grilled ( A) and Besugo Alle Ligure, Ligurian style-... More

We went here on a Saturday evening but hadn't booked and there was a bit of confusion about giving us a table. The place had quite a cliquey atmosphere and we felt that we weren't treated in the same friendly way as other people who obviously went there more regularly. The first waiter who came was rushed and not very... More

We ate here our last night, and it wasn't our favorite meal. The service was very attentive and our server was particularly helpful and friendly. We ordered the fish with lemon sauce. The fish was fine, but the lemon sauce was so tart we couldn't eat it. Our friendly server brought it back and had the chef tone it down,... More

Excellent ligurian food (full of fresh fish variety) and local wine are served in this restaurant near the sea. There is an excellent view of the bay and very quite location. You can not find best service however they are very friendly(but still room to improve). The dessert is not so delicious. Maybe my expectation for Italian desserts are too... More

Good restaurant in a nice position in santa margherita ligure. Nice view and calm terrace. Food quality is good but it is rather expensive for what you have.

Beautiful night, really good service and tasty food. We're treated well by our waitress. Location was a barge in the harbor. Hotel recommended and it was on the mark

I had dinner here with some friends. The food and service were excellent with a great location as well. I started with a sea food medley and this was followed by scampi and prawns which were also very good. I finished off with ice cream. Only two issues, dont go here if you want steak - they happily admitted that... More

Fish soup is a bomb. Good location. Nice view of marina. Book it beforehand especially at week-ends. Good for lunch as well
