The food was good and prices are very reasonable and not expensive. Flavor is kind of bland and easy, I would recommend it. Can sit outside and enjoy a careless afternoon looking at passerby's busy sightseeing in awe.

We enjoyed one of our best meals on our visit to Italy at this little restaurant! Trying to find a restaurant that was open in the middle of the afternoon can be challenging in Italy. But as we walked through beautiful Santa Margherita we came upon this restaurant that had a sign in English that it was open all day.... More

Very simple decor and feel disguises what is amazing food at great value. Our group ordered a mix of pastas and pizza, as well as two shared entries. Must say all were outstanding! The pizzas in particular were a standout. The value is great as I would say the prices are a little below the average for the location. Service... More

We had pizza, wine and dessert at Cinzia and Mario's Ristorante Pizzeria. Best pizza crust and toppings we've ever had. Super service. Topping selections were great and inventive. Mario is a funny host. Don't miss it!!

Better than the white tablecloth restaurants down the block. Family owned and operated with great smiling service. Excellent pasta, seafood, pizzas, and desserts. If Mario is offering any specials you will be well advised to give them a try. Always full of locals. Fussy tourists should probably go down the street where they can have something a little more familiar... More

Looked at several ristorantes in Santa Margherita and thought the menu had a good selection. Food was authentic and overall service (by the owners) was also superb. Pasta was fresh and cooked just right. Local wine was excellent.

We ate maybe the worst pizza in this restaurante. No taste, no quality, small portions. The ambience was ordinary, as well. I really do not recommend this place.
