And bliss. All locals, book in advance for fresh seafood, expertly cooked meat. Worth the short walk directly up from the centre along corso matteotti. Cafe next door, with outside tables does a great aforgatto for afters. Leave the tourists behind, good value.

We have been many times for many years...so local that there is no outside dining..all ad pecs are to please the local residents all the year..the best insalata data mare..the #1 version of classic fish (whatever the moment of orate, Branzino, cervical or...) in the classic Genovese presentation..pasta lemone with gambas..the list goes on...a real gem with lovely white tablecloths...

This restaurant is packed with locals everyday, all the time! We were so lucky that we found this place. Out of our 6 days stays in Santa Margherita we ate most of our meals here once we tried the food. Classic dishes executed perfectly! Fresh ingredients, generous portions, cooked and served with love. Staff friendly and service very efficient although... More

Local restaurant which is off the beaten track of the waterfront, but always full of people appreciating great pasta and pizza. Service was not so great, friendly but had to wait a while to be served but think that is because they are understaffed rather than inefficient. Saying that, every table was full, which speaks for itself!

Very happy with this place as recommended to us. Seafood was good- kids ordered spag vongole and frito misto. We ordered fish of the day in 2 guises. Together with a litre of house wine and deserts came to 85 euro. Tip: get there early to avoid disappointment !
