This was the second place to refuse me a meal in an empty resturante on September 24th Ether they did not like my perfume, or they did not want a solo diner at one of their many empty tables. Shame On You!

We have just had a lovely meal at this restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. As we walked by we only saw 3 customers sat at a table so thought maybe it's not that good! How wrong were we ! The service and the food was wonderful, I had a pasta dish and my husband had a delicious steak, cooked... More

We enjoyed our meal at this little gem. The waiter reccomended a special fresh fish (just caught and brought in that day) and it was truly delicious! The food was very good over all, I thought the service was awesome. Bit pricey (but good!) and be sure to make a reservation!!

Been there with six friends two weeks ago on a Saturday night in the beautiful Santa Margherita Ligure, one of the most beautiful town of the Italian Riviera. We had fish appetisers, a tasty pasta with fish sauce and a huge "Besugo" local fish backed to perfection and served with potatoes. It is one of those restaurants, which is not... More

We were there in late june and early july and had a great experience. Compared to the standard fare in most of the other restaurants in town, the food in Lo Spinnaker was different with many special dishes. It was the only place in Santa Margherita to serve chicken(a wonderful curry). What also makes this place special is the owner... More

The restaurant is in a great spot, it's right on the front, facing the sea. Usually this equals crappy service, average food and tourist trap prices. Thankfully this was not the case. Super friendly staff and very attentive service for a packed out place. We had the Ligurian fish to share and although I would of liked the drama of... More

Lo Spinaker is a small place, so small in fact, that you can easily miss it. I recommend you don't pass it by- but I also recommend you book a table, since it always seems to be filled with locals, all of them seeming to be friends of the owners, who eat, talk, drink and joke for hours. The food... More

Great food and music with DJ. The atmosphere is very nice and the service excellent, If you like good wine, they have a great wine list.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Lo Spinnaker. You must make a reservation if you want to sit outside since it has only a small patio area. But the view of the sea is worth it. The restaurant was filled with Italian groups who all seemed to know the owners/waiters so that made it a lot of fun for us.... More

My girlfriend and i ate here last night. The food was ok, probably 6/10. However, in the context of the quality of food in the region, the restaurant is overpriced and very sub par. Nothing spectacular in what we had to eat. i had the red mullet pasta ragu, and the prawns on grilled vegetables. It was a very average... More
