We had lunch outside and had a great Vermintino with pasta. The weather was very nice and we went to this restaurant because of the weather. The pasta was excellent.

We were visiting the area for two nights and wasn't sure where to eat .the concierge at our hotel recommended this place so we went there . We had mussels which were the best I've had anywhere . I had ordered the baked 'whitefish' which in the USA is really swordfish . It didn't matter because it was delicious .... More

It's not every day that you get to sit on a pontoon in the Italian Riviera and enjoy a meal. The staff of the Skipper will not welcome you into their restaurant but once in you will have a wonderful time. I ordered the mussels and they may be the best mussels I've ever eaten. The food is fresh, high... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurAnt for both lunch and dinner. The service was attentive, but the portions were very small. Wouldn't you think a restaurant called skipper would have large portions of fish? I had a grilled combo fish plate for $30 euros with two small langostinos, a couple small pieces of calamari, and a couple small pieces of white... More

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
