The sight through the door is exciting. Good wines at E5 a glass and delicious, simple food. We had the Gerwurztraminer, Chianti, Carpaccio and Crudites, so often enjoyed by us in the back streets of Tuscany. Strong tastes and good value. Certainly for this area. This was an excellent experience in our eleven days in the Portofino peninsula.

After reading hundreds of reviews for restaurants in Santa Margherita Ligure and Portofino, where you pay huge amount of money for mediocre food and terrible service, we chose Vineria Macchiavello to have our meal, which was truly the BEST choice. The atmosphere of this wine bar, the attentive, warm service with a smile and, most importantly, the delicious pasta exceeded expectations. After living in Italy for almost 3 years, we can truly say that the pasta was excellent. After having a great lunch at this vineria we even came back for an aperitivo and stayed for dinner. This wine bar has a good choice of local and International wines. Our lunch bill was 40EUR for a bottle of wine and a bottle of water, 2 plates of pasta with homemade pesto, complimentary appetizers with salami and cheese as well as delicious homemade tiramisu. For the quality and the service provided it is hard to beat on the Italian Riviera.

You can only describe the list of wines sold as flawless, and the antipasti served was excellent. We were there in February, with is not necessarily the best month for the Italian Riviera so the place was quiet (one other couple there at 7.30pm pm on a Saturday but it is a cosy place.

Only one, small problem. It really is very expensive for what you get.

Two "pinched" glasses of wine and a plate of antipasti that left us wanting more for well over 50 euros seems a great deal.

Good wine bar with easy atmosphere and good selection of wines. It is a family runned business and keepers are fast and smart waiters too. We enjoyed two very good roastbeef served with fresh green salad and bread. We ordered also a couple of red local wine glasses which revealed to be an excellent choice. Final price just 35€ for two persons. A worth place to enjoy simple genuine tastes of Liguria without thoughts.

We found the place in a rainy Sunday, in the internal street. Staff were nice with good English, food was tasty and wine was refreshing
