We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and evening at La Paranza. The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome and at home, and a plus that the food was very good. I had homemade gnochi (small potato dumplings) for starters that was excellent; we then had veal and steak, all quite good. Value was excellent--there was a... More

Superb! Cozy, warm, familial atmosphere. There were only two tables seated for the duration of our time here on a Sunday night, so service was exemplary, however I feel it would be the same if there were more guests. The veal piccata was amazing as well as the Wiener schnitzel. Price is economical, too! I count this as one of... More

We visited this restaurant on 3rd Dec 16 for lunch. The place has a very homely feel with very friendly owners! The restaurant has a view of the beautiful harbour. We had the set tourist menu which was great value at €25 each. Bread a little amuse boosh, homemade gnocchi, Frito Misto, fruit, coffee and a small jug of house... More

We ordered the lasagna al pesto and the fish ravioli. The lasagna al pesto is not the north American version. It is just freshly made flat lasagna noodles with a delicate pesto that was delicious. Fish ravioli were wonderful. Service was very good. I received a lovely red rose at the end of the evening.

The restaurant was recommended to us by our Hotel. We made a reservation for the following night, and we are so glad we did. We were seated right by the window and had an excellent view of the harbor and passersby. We both ordered a primi - pasta, and they were exceptional!. Then shared a grilled sea bass. One of... More

Its a big statement but its the truth. We stayed in Santa Margherita for two nights Friday and Sat. This restaurant was recommended by the restaurant workers and it did not disappoint. Half way through our meal Friday night we booked the last table available for the following night. It is a family owned and run and I have never... More

Lovely people and an amazing chef. The starters, fish main courses and desserts were fantastic! Great presentation and delicious ! Very good house wine and only €6 for a half litre. We had a bit of a 'hiccup' with the bill but that was soon sorted out. Sunday night was quiet and we'll certainly go again next time we stay... More

My husband and I visited La Paranza our first night in Santa Margherita. Our hotel suggested it. The food was extremely delicious. We started with the fish salad and mussels and then I had the pesto pasta while he had the lemon chicken. We really enjoyed sitting outside and thought that the service was fast and the owner was very... More

I have never written a bad review in my life, and I have never walked out of a restaurant in my life, but the rudeness and arrogance shown towards my husband and I made tonight the exception. We arrived and were seated. I was approached by an older man who appeared to be the owner/manager and I asked whether the... More
