We spent yesterday with my wife a very good moment at Stella Marina. Ok, service is effectively slow and could definitely be improved. I think it is a question of organization of the staff. But if you stay cool and overcome this issue, then the food is great. We had an excellent orate tartar as a start and then a Pezzogna for two (a variety of sea bream). The Pezzogna was incredibly fresh and good, well presented with fresh vegetables and potatoes as garniture, thus worth while the expensive price. A good experience at this restaurant, located on the sea shore in front of the ferries, but with its own charm (maybe in reason of the former). To be recommended.

Now the cuisine has the same quality as the service. The service was over the last years always very cool without customer orientation. The cuisine has become now bad, too. There are many other better restaurants in Elba. We will not return to la Stella Marina.

We go to Stella Marina every year, and won't even venture to another restaurant for dinner, even if it's three or four nights in a row. Strangely located on a parking lot in front of the ferry loading area (only negative) it is beautifully appointed, the service is excellent, and the food, the pasta and fresh fish are out of this world. Try the tasting appetizer menu, the fresh fish platter, the gambas with pesto mayonnaise -- we eat a couple of appetizers with bread olive oil and a bottle of wine for 60euros (2 people).
Wonderful!!!

Fantastic restaurant with excellent service....not sure where the other reviews are coming from. We had dinner yesterday evening with a family of five and the food was delicious!! ( look at the italian reviews further on...) . All the fish was extremely fresh and my god...the wine list is heavenly! Also for meat lovers, you must try the bisteca fiorentino , cooked in the woodfired oven, like a lot of their dishes. On my list for sure if I ever come back to Elba.
