Calanova is a quite drive down a secluded dirt road - where you end up in paradise! Situated on a hidden cove with amazing beach, calm cool water and the best seafood on Elba! Easy access by boat with water taxi access. This place is extra special and can't wait to return!

The food at Calanova is outstanding and of very high quality. We had the lasagnetta, the fish burger, fritto misto, pulpo asta and were all very content. However, this great food comes at a great price. Also, the view and location is beautiful and the staff friendly.

You get there only by a few kilometers of unpaved road, hidden in the bush, or by boat, but when you get there it's all going to be worth it. Friendly staff, not many tables, right on the tiny beach hidden by huge granitic rocks, it was a full moo, the wine was excellent and the dishes were the result... More

Calanova restaurant is right on the beach and offers amazing food in a very relaxed atmosphere, but with impeccable service. Dishes we tried last week included scampi with roasted peppers and green apples, gnocchi with truffle and egg, sardines on melon and courgette, tuna tartare. All were made with the freshest ingredients and tasted sublime. We ate lunch there every... More

To get here I"m pretty sure you have to take a boat in. Being hidden is part of it's charm. Once you've got your boat in the Lifeguard on the beach will pick you up. What's waiting is a delicious menu and great wine list including the local Elba white. Wonderful spot.
