“Excellent fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

We were at this restaurant at one evening on our stay in Elba. Thankfully we found this nice restaurant through tripadvisor! One advantage is the excellent view to the marina. The restaurant is right at the water and very romantic (a little hidden behind rende-vous restaurant but if you know you will find it). We had a sea food risotto as starter - delicious!!! But the highlight was the salted fish. Choose the local one since it is certainly better. They show the fish upfront in order that you can choose between different ones. I had a classical Ansonica wine with the fish which matches perfect. Very nice, would certainly recommend it for a romantic dinner - afterward have a gelato at la svolta right across the the street and the evening is perfect :-)

“Great restaurant on sea front”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Great menu and food, good Elban wines, pleasant staff (did however rather hover nearby throughout our dinner), lovely location right on the sea.

“Great food - not cheap but nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

This is a stunning location on the water looking back on the harbor and fortifications of Marciana Marina, couldn't be better.Afternoons and eveningss are quite spectacular from this side of the port.

The food was excellent, though a little expensive if you choose fresh whole fish as they charge by the 100g. Saying, that the flavors of the dishes were the best so far on Elba and head and shoulders over most others. This is more international level cuisine so a nice and refreshing change.

The service was very good and all very nice people so it makes for an enjoyable experience. The home made chocalte torta was second to none. Well done.

“Elegance and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

If you are looking for a romantic meal on the Isle of Elba, with a great view of the water and stunning rock formations from a terrace, this is it. Wonderful little town to stroll around, too.

“Excellent food!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

The place is really impressive and the food is excellent. The prices are right for the quality - around € 35 per person - 2 dishes (seafood predish + 2nd fish soup + white wine). The best dish in my opinion is the soup made by tomato and seafoods (huge!!) called "Zuppetta del Borgo" - let's try it
