This is one of the very few restaurants in Santa Margherita that are open for breakfast and offer a good variety of items. Fresh baked breads, pastries, quiches and made to order sandwiches. Everything we ordered was terrific and tasty. The service was very attentive and friendly. The view is a good bonus too!

It is right on the street near the harbor. The cafe latte is absolutely amazing. You must try it. Is the best place to drink your morning coffee.

We had an aperitif 1st and then decided to stay for dinner. Staff seemed to be a happy bunch with each other which convinced me to stay. Food was above average whilst waiter and waitresses we very obliging. Good location and worth a night out for this town.

Always go here when in Santa Margherita. Lovely service from Maria who provides an exceptional choice. Help yourself and you pay her at the end.

Every trip to Italy, we venture back to Caffe Del Porto and never get diss-appointed. Italian, bustling, variety of food and selections, drinks good, call in for snacks and a Campari this is the place. Never will be or wants to be the fine dining, it is the hustle bustle place to be fed, meet friends of a cruise ship,... More

We really enjoyed our lunch here. My husband really liked the tourist menu--which was great value and lots of food. He had fried fish, pesto pasta and a dessert. I had a very nice local fish. Staff was friendly. It was a good find.

We called here most evenings before dinner where drinks were served either at the bar or at a few allocated tables at the entrance of their restaurant. Staff were easy going and measures of spirits very generous. The café seemed very popular with locals and from the boating fraternity. It's position is ideal - right across from the waterfront and...

Old established cafe/restaurant on promenade near harbour. Popular with locals early evening before tables near entrance are laid for dining. Whilst we did not eat here our party of 4 often called here for a nightcap which were incredibly good value. Very generous spirit measures often evidenced and an example would be 4 coffees, 6 Sambuccas, a brandy and a... More

We went here because it was crowded and we were on our way back from dinner. Wanted to see why. We had wine, cappuccino and dessert. Great food and great service in a warm and inviting atmosphere. Wish we had a dinner there, since what was coming out of the kitchen looked great and smelled even better. We will go... More
