To be honest, I was a bit apprehensive when I saw the menu. It stated with an asterisk when some of the ingredients used were frozen. So I made a choice of the menu without asterisk: mussels with tomato as a starter and sauté vongole as a main. I was not disappointed, it was all fresh and very tasty. For... More

Last night I dined at the very delicious Ristorante Skipper in Santa Margherita, Italy. Seated on a floating pontoon we enjoyed outstandingly prompt and efficient service complemented by great views of the Ligurian Sea. We started with a range of "Antipasti", octopus with potatoes, fresh salmon and a plate of mussels. Each was simply delicious. The bread kept coming out... More

Bit frosty as we arrived with no reservation and needing a table of 4 on a Saturday night but after a warm chat they were accommodating. Great gnocchi bolognaise for the kids that wasn't even on the menu but we asked. Prosciutto rocket salad fresh and divine, again morphing 2 salads they were happy to accommodate. Great white local wine.... More

Perfect location, perfect cuisine and wine list, perfect customer care, wonderful views from boat in sunset time. Absolutely recommended place to have, at least, one great dinner there

The fish was really fresh. Place is good to see the Scene of Santa margherita, but the taste was a bit bland. We had spaghetti frutti di mare e grigliata. The bill was definitely a bit too high for what we ordered

The part of the restaurant in which we sat was on a pontoon on the bay so that we were gently rocked as we ate our food. The children in the party were fascinated by the fish that could be seen in the water below our table. The food was very tasty and the service excellent. The house wine was... More

We eat of course in skipper because it was a suggestion of our Hotel, Excelsior Rappalo, we decided to eat everywhere once so to know the area of restaurants better. The worse experience was in this restaurant!we were very disappointed:-( even the traditional meal was not good. I m sorry!

We pre booked our table on the pontoon section of the restaurant and it really was a beautiful location - a great view of the harbour, mountains, and boats. The waiters were attentive and spoke good English. We had lovely starters, two of us shared the sea food appetiser which was particularly delicious! As for main courses, those of us... More

We want my daughter and I for dinner. I had an gnocchi with Tartuffe and my daughter just penne with cream sauce. It's a nice place but more expensive than average and food wasn't yummy at all. They do not have a kids menu nor make a special price for kids plate that of course regular plates are just too... More
