Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Excellent food and great waitstaff. We enjoyed our experience, although smoking is allowed at outside seating in Italy and we were downwind of a table of enthusiastic smokers. The meal was great and our waiter was attentive. She helped us choose a wonderful wine that...paired well with our fish and pasta. My only complaint is their bread, which was dry and tasteless. Otherwise, the meal was excellent.More

Some of the best seafood pasta we had. Do try their lasagna which is worth every bite. Their wine recommendations worked very well, and the service was extremely friendly and professional. Highly recommended.

Me and my Wife are on Vacation celebrating our 50th Anniversary and from the reviews, this was one of our Top choices in Santa Margherita. It did not disappoint. The Food and Service was very good. We sat in a Patio area which was nice....Me and my Wife ordered different dishes and all were very good. We also had a nice bottle of Chianti and the deserts, Lemon Cake with Cream & Tiramisu were very good. The Service was excellent. Thank you for making our 50th Anniversary Celebration so Special.More

What a great experience I just had at Ristorante Antonio! They have a beautiful outdoor space, very comfortable. The staff is excellent, attentive and professional without seeming to hover over me while I ate. They were very knowledgeable about the food and wine, and eager...to help me make choices and correctly pair the wine. The meal was delicious! I opted for the Insalata gambetti for an appetizer, sea bass for the main and tiramisu for dessert. Each course was flavourful and nuanced. The sea bass was beautifully done with the lightest of sauces to accentuate the fish’s normal flavour. A great night and I highly recommend this restaurant.More

To put it simply, the food was delicious and the atmosphere is great. The service was impeccable and the staff is really friendly and kind. A really wide selection of seafood and wines, which you can’t go wrong with if you pair it well with...the food. The place is a bit pricey but it’s worth the money, as the dishes are wonderful. Overall, I had a wonderful evening here.More

Good sign if one great restaurant suggests another one! Arriving at Santa Margherita Metropole on a rainy early April afternoon. Still we opted for dining out and were sent to “Ristorante Antonio” – an it was worth every step in a Santa Margherita washed away...that evening. – No spectacular waterfront, no ostentatious building . . . one could even say “garage chick” with a souterrain feeling. Only three tables taken that night – family style. After Antonio’s death the ladies stir the ship elegantly. The “junior padrona” moderated our evening in perfect English and a lot of international experience. We did not order – we listened and got rewarded. Finally, mom – “regina di cucina” said hallo – no words needed.More

The hotel recommended and it was excellent. It is very traditional Ligurian food. The pesto and pasta was wonderful. The prawn salad was good. My husband had the fish of the day and it was excellent. Would definitely recommend. The waitress was very attentive and...helped us choose out meal. She helped make our first lunch in Ligure very special. Thank you.More

Unfortunately, on the day we visited the restaurant the frier was broken and we couldn’t try their “fritto misto”. This was a tad upsetting as we were looking forward having that. Nevertheless, the other food options were still exquisite, such as the pesto and the...octopus. If you are looking for a lighter meal we would recommend to order no more that a starter and a main course as the portions are quite filling. Also some of the staff were friendly.More

We thoroughly enjoyed the food we had at the restaurant it was excellent and the wine list was excellent. Our only complaint is the night was quite warm, no breeze and even sitting in the outdoor area we were continuously sweating. There must be a...way of getting some air movement eg fans on the side wall, portable fans ?? We would love to come back but not under those conditions.More
