My wife and I had dinner here while on vacation in Santa Margherita. I had read about in a well-known guidebook, so we decided to check it out. This is one of those places that seem to be very popular with the locals as well as visitors. There is some outdoor seating, but keep in mind that you can still smoke at restaurants if you're sitting outside (which we saw a lot of).
The restaurant had two pre-packaged menus that you could choose from in addition to the typical al a carte approach. We took advantage of one of the preset menus and were not disappointed. There is a "trofie" pasta dish that is popular in this region that is very good here. If I recall, it had gnocchi, pesto, and pine nuts, and I would recommend it. As with a lot of restaurants in Italy, their house wine was more than satisfactory and very reasonably priced (1/2 liter for 5 euros).
Service took a little longer as the restaurant filled up, but we found everyone to be very pleasant and would not hesitate to go back if we were ever in the area again.
