We went to Di Gianna purely on the Tripadvisor reviews, and were a not disappointed. Great fresh food, attentive service, superb value for money. The restaurant was full of locals which tells you everything. Seafood a speciality. We are on and off Elba for the next two months and will not be going anywhere else in Portoferraio.

The food and friendly staff of this family owned restaurant was so good we went twice in the four days in Elba. Both locals and tourists were there. All fresh pasta. The antipasto de Mare was fantastic and so was the antipasto mista. The fresh fish all forno che buono. Pasta profuma di mare also very good. Recommended!

Now I am not surprised why this place has such fantastic reviews. "Excellent" describes the experience best. Everything was delicious. The owners take care of you and you feel most welcomed, like a friend. In da Gianni we had the best calamari on Elba. Also they prepared a garlic sauce especially for us. The home made pasta is superb. Starters... More

Sometimes a restaurant owner just 'gets it right' and this place is a perfect example that good ingredients with good service equals an excellent experience. The food is really excellent, our mussels were as fresh as you could hope in a liqueur that was delicious, I used several rounds of bread to soak more up. We had the fresh pasta... More

A nice surprise. We have been there a couple of times for lunch during the break from the beach with the whole family. Genuine and good food. Primi piatti are all home made by the mother and you can breath a very familiar atmosphere. Fresh homemade pasta is perfect. We appreciated they immediately offered the children's portions. Bruschette for free... More

We were searching for a place to eat when we found Ristorante di Gianni in its quiet and cozy setting. On our first day there we all asked for pasta and we decided that it was so good that we had to come back. Two days later we were back, having ordered the rice. It was extremely nice and we... More

Nice restaurant in Portoferraio. Very nice owner who takes care of the guests. It looks like the owner is proud for his pasta dishes. We took fresh pasta for the kids and they very happy. We took fried calamaries/seafood and vino della case. We were satisfied. I recommend to visit this place during stay in Portoferraio. Please have in mind... More

In a small alley a bit from all the most obvious tourist parts of portoferraio. A very nice restaurant. The food is very good, they understand english sufficient enough and is very nice. The portions are generous and you get some bruscheta to start with.

The restaurant is hidden just off the main road near the port in an un inviting alleyway. Inside the restaurant is nothing special, cramped and noisy with television blaring in the corner. The menu is very limited offering antipastos from the '70's, pasta dishes that you could make yourself at home (eg. Bolognese sauce!) and the main dishes comprising of... More
