This place is away from the marina area and the circus of SML. When we were there we got the feeling it was a very local place. Italian were having a birthday party there. The terrace was full with a lot of older people (we are in our mid 30s) so we actually sat inside. I think we had a... More

Food was well cooked, tasty and well priced. Stumbled upon it accidently and glad we did. Went back for s second night. Had pasta and seafood both nights, although different varieties each night, and they were consistent and tasty. Be sure to book. Wine was cheap and tasty too

We walked past this restaurant for 6 days as we were staying just above SML on our holiday. If was always packed in the evening-presumably with locals as it is a 5/10 minute walk from the main tourist areas. You can eat inside or outside. Staff are friendly and there is a good choice on the menu. We enjoyed a... More

Authentic Italian cuisine without the tourist price tag. This is where the locals go. It's great quality food at a great price for the Italian Riviera.

Qerky little family resturant, with classical Italian dishes, where the price list doesn't show sign of the place being situated in a holiday Hotspot. The pizza was crisp and delicious.

Dined here twice in June 2016. Quintessential local, value for money restaurant with lovely warm atmosphere. Food is good, reasonably priced and service is excellent. The kind of place you would want to return to every night. We also had a takeaway pizza which was excellent. One thing to note for those with a gluten-free diet is that the condition... More

You cannot go wrong. They serve all the classic sea food and pasta dishes, plus the best pizza in Santa. The prices are extra ordinarily low. Don't miss this place.

Went to this restaurant twice while in the resort. Away from the tourist places nearer the sea front and looks as if frequented by the locals. Pizzas were good and service was friendly and efficient. Good choice of pizzas to choose from. Would recommend to anyone who fancies a pizza or pasta and away from the tourist spots.

We were introduced to this restaurant by some local friends and what a find. Inexpensive, great food, attentive service and a really great chatty informal atmosphere. In the summer opt for the outdoor seating... alfresco dining in the garden. The vino sfuso (fresh wine) is slightly fizzy, and delicious so I am told. And the calamari is some of the... More

The 15 or so minute walk from the sea front area to Dal Baffo is easy and builds the anticipation for what delicious experience one will have. The walk back after a great meal is just as nice. We ate there twice, but would have three times had it not been closed Tuesday eve. The atmosphere is nice and the... More
