The food was fantastic and full of locals but there is no menu and no indication of what the cost will be. Because it looks local one assumes it will not cost a fortune but BEWARE, the end bill will leave you shocked! The food was very nice but next time I would check how much I was spending before...

Informal, popular local restaurant/pizzeria - family run, good service, where you can inspect and choose your fresh fish before they cook it for you. Generous portions, fair prices. Nuff said.

We ate the first meal of our trip here after a recommendation from our B&B. The staff were friendly, the food was good and reasonably priced. As it was within walking distance of our accommodation, we went back on our second night and enjoyed our meal that time too. Would recommend.

This was our first meal after travelling a day to get to Elba and our B&B, it is a family friendly, earthy place and like most of Elba you must know some italian to interact at a level where you can order food without misunderstanding.

We went to the restaurant because we were told that the Chef on our cruise ship always ate there. We were seated outdoors immediately. It's a small restaurant and the patio was also small. There were a lot of locals, so we were hopeful. Unfortunately, they drank most of the beer, so a small selection was even smaller. The food... More

The number of people waiting promised a delicious meal, so we were patient. Imagine our surprise when we had tasteless, micro-sized clams (they were supposed to be Verraci, which are medium-sized and flavorful) over our dry-as-a-bone spaghetti. Never again.
