the food is good more average than super but in any case too much expensive compare with what they are offering. It is sure it is easy to find better even in this corner of the island. No need to experience the place.

We went here after a day at the beach and while it was on the road to the place we stayed. The restaurant is alongside a "busy" road and so we though to just grab a pizza or easy pasta, but the waiter started showing us lobster, nice fishes and mentioned the courses of the day and we switch plans....

I knew the man who built it, his son ran it and they were lovely. It has become the default restaurant for Elbans on this side of the island during off season. Under new management these days and somewhat smarter than it used to be, it is still an excellent place to eat. These days they are rather proud of... More

A good place to eat, fresh fish and pizza, lot's on the (only italian) map but we were not too enthusiastic about the quality and price.

We decided to check out this restaurant out one day, on our drive to Hotel Villa Ottone where we were going to spend the next 10 days chillaxing. We arrived for an impromptu dinner on Wednesday the 28th and found ourselves in, what appeared to be the original section of the restaurant. I chose a grilled seafood platter and my... More

Visited end september, end of season for Elba. We were the first to enter (at 18:30: Dutch like to eat early) Really friendly staff speaking bit of English and German. Really good food (we had a Tagliata and a Tuna steak) Been on Elba for a few months, this was really one of the better ones!

Food was simply delicious, the fish was fresh and delicious. I had the spaghetti allo scoglio and my husband had the pasta with the wild bore and they were both delicious. We both had dinner for second main and that was also fresh and tasty. The calamari were obviously a bit heavy but portions were VERY generous for both mains.... More

Nothing to complain. The tuna tartar, squid pasta and pizza were delicious as well as was the wine that was recommended by the waiter. The restaurant itself was very neat and came with a cozy atmosphere. We would definitely go again!

As a graphic designer I shouldn't have set foot in here as the sign outside was done in Comic Sans (a big no no) but it was too late to back out and I'm glad I didn't. We sat in the outside area which was welcome as it was very hot but the sound from the road sometimes annoying. Food... More

This restaurant is fast becoming our 'favourite' place to dine in Elba. Great service, authentic Italian food including tasty seafood, steak and pizza (again) for the kids and home made desserts. The prices are reasonable for the quality you get. The staff make you feel very welcome. 5 stars from our family!!

Thank Ailse M
