Very nice restaurant located in San Lorenzo della Costa, with a scenic view of the Tigullio Gulf. Nice food and wine, suggested for couples.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

We are locals and we're so happy that we tried out this gem of a restaurant. The food is fantastic, very different menu compared to the boring menus you find in town (pesce alla ligure, trofie con pesto, same stuff in every restaurant and they hardly ever change their menus). Here you'll find a different menu every month, the wines are all very good and the service is excellent. The only criticism would be the portion sizes, slightly on the small side.

“The charming Angelo....”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

Two youngsters, 30 and 28, left the local 4* Miramare hotel where they were groomed as chef and sommelier, and started their own restaurant. "Cigae" , a dialect word for a local insect, will be one of the big names of santa Margharita. High up in the hills , you have a mindblowing unhindered view of sea and town, fresh ansjovis prepared on two or more ways, great pasta,....enjoy one of sommelier and chef d'equipe Angelo's bio-wines and you may wonder why life is so simple and so perfect.Cigae is there since 17 months...I hope that, once their table service is streamlined, a lot of people find the way to Angelo on his mountain.

“View, flavour and service make this place special”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

From the moment that Angelo greeted us we had an exceptional experience with absolutely outstanding views and service. The quality of the food created by Federico made it special. After two weeks in Italy, we were not expecting to be as impressed.
