We struggled to get into a restaurant on the Friday night and this was the fourth place our hotel tried for us. It was extremely busy (it was a holiday weekend), and it is very central. There were lots of Italians there.
The food was very pleasant - typical of SML, lots of seafood, pasta etc.
We felt rather rushed - the staff were tearing around rather frenetically and the manageress made it clear that they wanted our table. We might have been better off eating slightly out of the town centre that evening, and we certainly had a better experience elsewhere during our stay.

In the hart of Santa, this little restaurant is always fully booked, and you can understand why once you eat there.
We go to Santa since ever and wanted to try this relatively new place, and discovered a little gem. The service is excellent, but what really makes the difference is the great quality of the food and the ingredients.
The location is nice too and ... the bill was honest! It's Good Value for your money (that is not usual in this area).
The only remark: we had to wait 45' between the starters and the main dishes, ... but this can happen...
Definitely a place to recommend.

We ate at Ristorante Da Michele after making a reservation over the phone. The restaurant was busy and we wouldn't have been able to sit outside if we hadn't reserved. The food was very good with good sized portions. We had parma ham and melon, beef carpaccio, gnocchi with prawns and courgettes, spaghetti vongole, with two soft drinks, water and a beer the cost was €53.50. The service was quick up until we asked for the bill and then that seemed to take ages! The atmosphere was good - many of the other diners seemed to be locals, which I always think is a good sign. I would definitely recommend.

One of the most popular and recommended restaurants in Santa Margherita but we were disappointed. Although it was very busy with a large group the service was quicker than we would have wished for a relaxing dinner. Classic Italian menu. Main course veal was excellent but creme caramel tasted burnt. It was removed when we complained but not replaced and it was charged for.
Good central location with outside seating area.

Of our five nights in Sta. Margherita we ended up eating 3 times at da Michele and it would have been more if we had tried it earlier. We found the food excellent and the service superb. Moreover the prices were very reasonable give the quality of the cooking. The menu is diverse and everything we tried was well-prepared. One of our best eating experiences in Italy.
