It's a legend in Santa Margherita. Food is good with the usual Ligurean dishes but not only. Always ask for the daily specials. When overcrowded the quality may go down - but that happens everywhere. On the other hand, it is a good restaurant fairly priced and located in the best spot. Great for a big group of people 😊

This restaurant is placed right in the middle of this cosy little town and very near to the sea. It serves pizza as its speciality but also sea food pasta and as a main course. Nice quality food for a fair price and the service is quite efficient in spite of the high number of clients it often gets.

My family of five and I went to this restaurant after wondering around for half an hour trying to find somewhere that could squeeze us in. And we were glad we came across it! In a great location and with a buzzy large outdoor eating area, we got served quickly by friendly waiters. The food was good value for money,... More

I often visit Emilio. Great food, good pizza, great people running it. It has been owned by the same family for the last 30 years. They know how to keep customers happy.

A great choice of food, drink and deserts. We had starfish ravioli and steak. Both were excellent. The staff were friendly, helpful and speedy without rushing. There were no language problems. Although it is on the main road there was no intrusive traffic noise and the view over the square to the ferry terminal was clear. If we had the... More

Waiters very simpaticos and funny, their steak was delicious! The meat melted in your mouth like the way it's supposed to, their spaghetti alle vongole are the best on the menu and their pesto. Good for large families with kids (we were 11)

Ate at this restaurant recently. The food was good but the service left a lot to be desired considering we were not ordering pizza and coke. One of the gentleman was very pleasant whilst the other waiter tried to rush us and others through dinner. I know we were tourists but we were prepared to spend a reasonable amount to... More
