We came here for dinner on the last day of the season. It's a beautiful place, even at night when beyond some lights from Marciana Marina you don't get to benefit from the outstanding view. A very smart restaurant nonetheless, all very sleek and with...an excellent sounding menu. The only problem was that the dishes we ordered ranged between average and quite poor. Maybe we were unlucky, but it felt like it was trying a bit too hard.More

Well then ... fantastic menu range that is not exclusively pasta or pizza, Wild boar goulash to die for and According to Mrs McD the pastacio ice cream nutty thing was the best desert ever ... prices not bad either 👍

We had a fun birthday celebration for my husband here in September 2017. Food was good, not great and on the expensive side. But we had a great time!

We had a lovely evening in this village restaurant in Elba with friends. With great views this place has a lovely setting. A bar above serves good cocktails with friendly service. Downstairs in the restaurant we were warmly welcomed and shown to our window seats...and we were glad we booked as other vacant tables soon filled up. We found the choice of meals good and the standard was good. Service was good. Prices were slightly higher than down on the coast but we were very pleased with our evening out.More

I went on a beautiful Friday of August, not extremely busy, so here we know why. May be is just my impressions but every bad review that I read the answer is extremely rude! Calling customers stupid and the “stay at home then” is not...profesional AT ALL! So grotesque! It was a totally let down with the options. I went totally convinced that had plenty of vegetarian options -not saying vegetarian resturant- but vegetarian options - really clear at the description of their restaurant as the picture shows. And when you arrive is literally 2 dishes with mushrooms and 2 sides - they are vegetables and that’s a normal side here and in China . So we could not eat anything that just sides and this made us felt happy. For the really bad information just to get more people in and nothing in. I felt very poor cordiality from management asides of the service and menu choices , is very disrespectful and not very smart from a business owner. Must not really care at all their reputation and money. Not valuing the time and money people spent on the place with the excitement of a good night ending on disaster is not understanding what hospitality’s is. The place is lucky , has amazing village views , but that’s all. SeriouslyMore

This restaurant has an amazing view and very good service. The food was very good, however the dishes me and my husband orderer was a little boring. He ordered stake and I orderer tagliatelle. Both was only including mushrooms, nothing more. We ordered grilled vegetables...on the side and shared to spice it up a little. The tasts was very good. The staff was very service minded and friendly.More

Well cooked (but not fancy) food, extensive and reasonable wine list, with some prices less than London shops. Top steak, washed down with an excellent Tuscan wine and we were in food heaven. Ask for a table on the (covered) terrace for a spectacular view...of the coast. The staff were flexible to stay open an extra 15 minutes after their closing when we were lost on our way.More

The menu contains some experimental foods but don’t hesitate, the cocoa ravioli with wild boar filling and parmigiano sauce was absolutely delicious. The chestnut gnocchi was a bit bland though. The staff was very friendly and spoke good English.

Been there once few weeks ago with my wife for dinner while we were in Elba for our vacations. The restaurant is in the center of a lovely and colorful village on the mountains with breathtaking views of the coast. This means there are no...many places you can easily park in the area on a busy night. I honestly think this place is overrated and quite expensive for the food they serve. The wine list is quite rich and the service was good too.More
