Excellent and charming restaurant on side street. Waiters gave excellent service. We had pasta dishes and they were outstanding, esp the bolognese sauce. Prices typical for Santa margherita (reasonable).

My husband and I had a great experience at this restaurant. We found it hidden in an alley and decided to try it for lunch. I had the Branzino alla Genovese. I have had this many times elsewhere and this was the BEST I have ever had. Perfectly cooked, unbelievably fresh, light and flavorful. My husband had the Spaghetti Fruto... More

Our airbnb host recommended this restaurant, so we had to try it out. We weren't impressed, but there was a lot of variety and we ordered five different dishes. Try their specials, I never saw such dishes anywhere else!

We were looking for a restaurant to eat on our first night in Santa. The recommended ones were fully booked, so we arrived here just looking for one course after a long day travelling. We had moules mariniere and calamari friti with some fries. Mussels were gritty and the calamari too heavily coated. The staff were not that friendly either.... More

This was very good. The walnut white sauce on pasta was excellent. The chef came out on my request to give us his recipe for the sauce, which is made with mile and not cream. This made it very light and complimentary to the pasta.

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who lives in town. We had a delicious lunch with gamberi and veal. Lovely, cozy street and excellent service.

Called early evening to request a table. Owner unsure if we could book (she appeared harassed to be asked !) but eventually showed us to a table in a long room in an annex overlooking an alleyway . However all tables soon occupied with mainly locals (a Sunday night) and atmosphere far better. Food was good although seafood risotto ordered... More

A friend recommended this restaurant. The seafood was fabulous. Nothing fancy just good Genovese-style cooking. Reasonably priced. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The restaurant is on a side street so there's no waterfront view and it's not the easiest to find. But the food makes it well worth seeking it out.

With many street fronted restaurants to choose from, it is worth the find for Baicin.In a small narrow alleyway, quite close to the main streets. Wonderful welcome from a very friendly team.Suspect it is a family run business. The grilled seafood platter was outstanding.In fact the whole dinner was a delight. Not as fancy as some restaurants, but certainly top... More
