Great place, amazing food. We started with raw shrimps ( gamberi) they were so fresh. We then had lasagnette al pesto and spaghetti alle olive - possibly one of the best pesto ever tried. After that their signature scampi dish with a secret ingredient. Great wine list and service. Desert menu was a bit uninspiring. Pay a visit best in... More

A friend of mine invited me while in SML to have dinner in this , that upon his words is a restaurant famous over decades for his pasta, risotto and scampi . It all turned out to be above my expectations . The setting is quite basic , menu must have been printed in the 70's so first impression is... More

We ate here Friday night as the rest of our very large party of 16 filled out a nearby risotto restaurant and there wasn't room for the remaining 5 of us. So we walked down the street to Batti and the meal was absolutely fantastic! We had six different starters, including the pesto lasagna, and my favorite was the stuffed... More

Expectations were high and the result was even better We choose the set meal and each course was special. Fish and paste were all excellent and the pesto lasagna the best I have ever tasted.....perfect balance and not over "pesto'ed". Looking for a fish and pasta meal.....you will find this an excellent choice. Plan to arrive a little early and... More

I go there whenever in the area since 1987...the Risotto and the Scampi are simply the very best in the world. Don't believe anything in the other reviews... This is a temple for food for the Genovese...

We ate here during our stay and had the two items they are known for, the scampi which is a MUST try for everyone and the pesto lasagna which is also excellent. Do something with the pesto sauce that makes it much milder, very interesting. Nice wines on the menu, but limited selection if you want something other than the... More

I read in a magazine when asked her favourite restaurant in the world Kylie Minogue quoted this one. Naturally I was expecting big things :) It is in a back lane way and has no view. Non-descript interior. The food was fantastic and the host was lovely, a charming Italian lady and was joking around with us. I asked what... More

Being famous for its scampi, it met our expectations. Olive pasta and pesto lasagne were excellent. It is a bit expensive but really chammy.

We read about this restaurant in a UK national paper - apparently it is recommended by Ruth Rogers. As she knows her Italian food inside out, we thought we would give it a go. So glad we did. Informal, relaxed restaurant not far from the sea. We stuck to Ruth Rogers' suggestions and started with various little dishes of raw... More

We were recommended to visit by an Italian friend of ours "for the red scampi". As my wife and I both like our seafood, we sought out a meal here during our stay in Santa Margherita. True to the recommendation, the scampi was to die for. It was served steaming on a communal plate dripping in what others have called... More
