“An Amazing Meal Every Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Our family eats here at least twice during our stays in Santa Margherita. We love the backyard outside eating space, with the hanging lemons and comfortable feel. The woman who owns the place is quiet but sweet and has an amazing knowledge of wines and food. We always had an wonderful meal...with something new on the menu all the time. The experience of the serving style (elegant) and delicious food plus comfortable feel, I haven't found anywhere...like this. Plus the bonus is being privy to the locals patronizing this restaurant.

“We ate there 3 nights in a row!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

The food the first night was so delicious that my husband and I asked each other why we needed to go anywhere else to eat - so we went back. Still delicious! So we went back for a 3rd night - and this time asked our hostess to order for us. Fresh fish and seafood, cooked to order, creative food, yet not overly fancy. It's a family-run restaurant with attentive service and excellent recommendations as to what to eat.

We ate there in 2010 and we still talk and dream about it today - and recommend it to anyone who will be in the area.
