This family-run restaurant and inn is just a few blocks from the waterfront in Santa Margherita Ligure. Bottles line the wall of the sleek interior, showing they put an emphasis on the wine list, which has more than 800 labels! There is a patio for outdoor dining.

Everything is fresh and seasonal, but this restaurant provides a change of pace from the usual seafood - its focus is on meat and vegetables, ideal for those who don't like fish or just want something different than the "normal" coastal cuisine. Bread and focaccia are made fresh daily. Try the pasta with rabbit sauce or the pesto-marinated lamb.
