We had wine, water, soda, fish, clams, shrimp, spaghetti, lasagna and too many others. I'm still here. The people are all so happy. The owner is walking around singing. The view of the Riviera is unreal. It's a definite suggest, recommend and even coerce anyone in the area wanting great food to go there. I'm an American and hard to... More

This restaurant has a nice ambience - it overlooks the port of S Margherita. The staff are friendly and efficient. Our girls had basic bolognese with spaghetti which was light and delicious. We shared a gnocchi with pesto- the gnocchi melts in your mouth, followed by oven baked fish with potatoes. The fish was very fresh and perfectly cooked. A... More

This is a short review because there's no need to say too much. This restaurant has a lovely outlook-inside is much quieter than outside because of the road noise- mainly motorcycles and scooters. The food is simple but very good. We had gnocchi with pesto, delicious spaghetti bolognese and whole baked Dorado with potatoes and olives. House wine was a... More

The two of us attended La Darsena for dinner when we arrived for our two night stay in the town. As a late arrival in our hotel we were recommended by our hotel to go to this restaurant just down the road. The food was outstanding; we had delicious mussels to start followed by an exceptional seafood risotto. The waiting... More

Great place. We took the menu. The food was delicious, and the price spectacular for that high quality sea food. Plus sea view!

We went for lunch and wanted a simple Mediterranean salad with tuna, tomatoes and mozzarella. We orderd wine and coffee with are meal. The meal was served in chipped kitchen bowls, very little tuna and they mixed raw hot dogs into the salad. We were gracious and paid our bill and left a tip. And they call us the ugly... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Santa M. Menu is generally fixed and hasn't varied much at all in the years I have been going here, but why would it. The fish anti pasti is one of the best you can get, with the plates continuing to come out one after the other. Be careful not to be... More

This is the second place our hotel recommended for dinner in Santa Margherita and my fiance and I went for an unbeatable date night. You may choose to be inside and enjoy the views right out on the swimming area and marina or sit out on the patio. The 5 plate seafood anitpasti is so fresh and delicious and a... More

This large restaurant has a great position at the end of the sea front with lovely views from the outside terrace area and inside room. It gets busy with large groups and consequently service can be quite slow and there is an extra wait if you've ordered something different to your dining companions! The food is OK but only average... More

We tried a number of water side cafe and they were overpriced and not as nice as this. This is fantastic food and value for money!
