We had a gorgeous walk to beautiful Portofino and back and we were hungry! Our Airbnb host, Laura, recommended Trattoria da Pino, near our apartment, earlier in the day. The delicious smells from the kitchen led us to the door where we were greeted by...More

A small, family-run place featuring fish (like most in SML), but exceptionally good here. Lucky to land a reservation--got there at 8 pm (early for Italians) but it was already nearly full, and completely so a half-hour later. Really good (appetizers) soup, mussels and even...More

After 3 nights in Santa Margherita and 3 mediocre meals (including one recommended by the Italian Michelin guide) we were beginning to think that this town had little to offer in terms of quality Italian regional food. However, after taking a detour off the main...More

Here's my advice - walk away from the water and the piazza to Trattoria Pino. We were delighted to sit among Italians being welcomed by the owner. The food was delicious. The branzino fell apart in a lovely sea of olive oil. The ravioli in...More

We stumbled upon this little restaurant on our way into the busier part of town, but stopped when we saw that it was quite busy and we liked the menu on the outside wall. There were a couple of tables left and we are so...More

We were here six years ago and the cosy nature has not changed. Perhaps in 2010, things were a bit slow and not busy (the crash, no money, people scared witless), so this time it was a bit busier with more tourists. The same maître...More
