When you walk through Santa Margherita you will see this place on the main walkway. We were here in October and the outside was covered so you could eat outside and still be warm. We had seafood one night with a Vermintino and it was very good. The next night we had pizza with Vermintino and it was excellent. The... More

My husband and I both ordered fish dishes. Mine was the branzino with tomato, herbs and wine. Both dishes were delicious. Service was amazing!!!!! Finished with limoncello.

Great restaurant located on the port with views of the sea. Superb Italian food ie, pizza, pasta, pesto, rissoto, seafood, meats, and wines. The waiters are friendly and competent. My favorite was Carlo Meloni,

Good Italian pizza restaurant - great waiters and a lovely atmosphere! I would return. Note: pizza size is HUGE (and you can take away if you need), slightly soggy in the middle so ask for crispy. Great wine selection, good price.

After leaving Portofino on the ferry we decided to stop off in Santa Margareta for lunch on or way back to Rapallo. After leaving the ferry we walked across a small park and then we found the restaurant over the road. We ordered water, beers and half a bottle of white wine plus a Pizza Romana, Pizza Prosciutto, 1 Caprese... More

Recommended by our hotel. Maybe they don't like us? Sits in amongst a collection of mid range eateries and bars; certain, buzzy. Service great, prices fair enough, pizzas soggy and sparing of toppings. I'd like that evening back please! Try Delfino.

We had a delightful dinner there tonight. It's the end of 3 days of eating but we still managed to have one more delicious meal. We shared Caprese Salad, Pizza with onions, ravioli and something else cheeses and decadent....Framagio...? Carlo was our excellent server. Thank you for your attention and kindness.
