If you’re looking for an early bite in Santa Margherita and had the poor foresight not to make a reservation for anything…Divino Wine Lounge is an excellent choice. We settled here after a long day of travel and no food. There was one other couple enjoying a bowl of pasta at this off time, so why not give it a go? Upon sitting down, I saw the unfortunate Google review of 2.7 stars. An avid researcher, I was a bit nervous about this, but it ended up being a truly lovely meal…either because we were exhausted or because it really was.
We started with some heavy apero snacks…
Shared a lovely tomato and burrata starter (not pictured) and settled on the regional trofie with pesto which was perfectly cooked al dente and was the indulgent but refreshing meal we both needed.
Forget the Google reviews and give this lovely wine bar, perched just over the marina, a try for some delightful food of a small menu (always a good sign) and people watching (never a dull moment).
