It's a very nice place where to eat all the typical Tuscan dishes. A menu done with daily market ingredients.

Reservations are a must, if not you will be in for a long wait, if you manage to get in at all. Can't tell you how many people we saw turned away. Don't come here if you are in a rush. All the food is freshly prepared so you need to relax and enjoy the host's passion for the food... More

We have been guests at Taverna die Poeti for two days now, and we now understand why it was not possible to get a table by just walking in. The name belies the true nature of the restaurant - this is not a tavern with paper napkins and no tablecloths. It is a full-service restaurant with a laid-back atmosphere. The... More

A great place to eat if you have some time to enjoy it (and it's not exactly cheap, but not overly expensive either). We had a dinner there once. The food quality, including the vegetarian options (a wonderful cake of yellow zucchini for example) was excellent. There were also other veg options available. The fresh pasta was very good too....

Although Capoliveri is one of those villages turned into a major tourist attraction, the Taverna dei Poeti does not cater to the large crowds on the outlook for a quick, cheap bite. Arrive on time (or all tables will be taken) and take your time to study the card and make your choice among the local dishes and (if you're... More

We go here since years. A great fish kitchen, there self-made palmita is a dream. The fettucine with lobster is perfectly prepared, all variations of tuna are impressive. They have an excellent wine menu, very broad local choice. very impressive: the choice of Elba olive oil available. We have purchased wine and oil at several occasions after having tried a... More
