We stopped into this small, inviting space to grab some dinner on our last night in Santa Margherita Ligure after a day trip to Monterosso al Mare. We ordered some house wine, which was excellent, like you might expect at a wine bar in Italy. We ordered a starter and pasta for a quick dinner, which turned out to be... More

We were between buses and decided to have a quick lunch. We were very pleasantly surprised because the lunch menu was small but we tried 2 of the 3 pastas and both were excellent. The large ravioli especially good. We also shared a good caprese salad but with dry herbs not fresh basil. Also had some good Barbaresco wine by... More

Love this restaurant! Would go there every night. It's casual and comfortable. The food is elegant and interesting. I had a zucchini starter and carpaccio with gorgonzola cream. It was great. This place is not fancy. It's a wine bar where locals go for a light meal or a glass of wine. It was fun to be surrounded by Italians... More

The menu was limited, but what we had was good. The reason for the two stars is the obvious rush the waitress and sommelier were in to get us out to turn over the table. This in spite of the fact it was a Sunday. And no one was waiting. And we were prepared to pay a lot of money... More

This is a nice place, but a tad expensive for what it is. The food is nice, the wine is grand. The tables are not best arranged inside for it to continue to be a retail premises later into the evening – In fairness, I did say it to them. So the best option is to try and get a... More

We popped into this cute Wine Bar for a well needed drink & was surprised by the quality & quantity on display . Run by a lovely young couple with good wine knowledge & all at competitive prices. The kitchen delivers lovely snacks to go with the glass of "naughtiness ' we are frequenting it daily during our visits here.

Absolutely great! Visited for some afternoon wine and food - ate very well and drank some great wines by the glass! Purchased a couple of bottles of the Rosato Rosamara we had by glass. Service is great and the prices very decent. The ambiance is relaxed and lovely - we are absolutely coming back!

An authentic Italian with extensive wine list Quite simply the best pasta dish I've ever tasted, and a panna cotta desert to die for
