During our stay at la Pilade Residence, me and my wife had dinner multiple times a la Pilade estaurant. Their menu is extensive with excellent dishes. We have tried many different starters mains (both fish and meat) and desserts. We chose the half board option...during our stay and could choose from a great selection of the a la carte menu every day. All were delicious with good quality and fresh ingredients. But the staff made our stay even more memorable. We have never experienced a more dedicated team that works so hard to accommodate the guests. Although the restaurant has a large capacity and the team is rather small, we never had to wait long for our food or drinks. Highly recommended!More

The restaurant is situated just of the main road that goes up to Capoliveri. It’s part of a three star hotel with apartments and rooms as well as swimming pool, sauna and jacuzzi. We stayed overnight and as we arrived late it seemed a easy...choice to eat here. The restaurant does both fish and meat and indeed specialises in great big fiorentine steaks that go for about 5€ per 100gr but a steak weighs in at around 2kg so if you are in the mood is a meal for two. Otherwise there is rump steak or a big chunk of sliced beef. Starters go from 8€ up to 14. First course about the same and Mains from €14 up to around €20 apart from the florentine steak of course. I had the vegetarian starter which was a mix of cooked and preserved vegetables which I liked a lot. Others dishes were gnocchi with a goat ragù, trenette pasta with beef ragù and penne pasta with a tomato sauce. All very nice and well presented. For second I had a lovey fried mixed fish of shrimps and squid. The other second was a big tuna steak which was also very nice. After that we only had room for one sweet which was a tiramisu again very nice. The wine is very well stocked with top Italian wines and fizz. As only one of us was drinking I had a half bottle of the Felluga white. All in all this was a great restaurant and I can recommend it to anyone who is on the Capoliveri area!More

We were told to come here from a friend who is from Capoliveri and it was the best advice we could have hoped for ! We decided to go for meat and ended up having the Best fiorentina steak we have had in a long...time. The resturant is welcoming and the staff was helpful and made sure we were happy with our choices . Highly recommend if you find yourself in Elba!More

Good meat but bad service and too expensive we were really upset about the lack of professionality of the waiter and the lack of courtesy.

We really liked this restaurant. We stopped by for lunch as we were passing. Had an enjoyable meal and booked to come back for dinner the following night. We were welcomed back and again the food and service did not disappoint. I would probably describe...as a fish restaurant. Well, certainly in the antipasti and the pasta courses. In the main courses there was a good list of fish choices, but also a list of Angus steaks. I went for the T Bone, medium rare. Just delightful. Our children (7 and 9) were made as welcome at dinner as they had been at lunch. My daughter recommends the Octopus Stew. There is a extensive wine list at sensible prices. We would definitely go back if on Elba.More

I had a guest from Sweden who did not want to eat just fish when he came to Elba. So from a recommendation given by someone from the island I took him to Pilade, where it was said that meat should be really good. The...meat was alright, but everything else was miserable! They served our plates with more than ten minutes difference! Nearly no excuses at all. We felt like the usual stupid tourists to be taken advantage of. (We are not!) Needless to say, I never went back there since, though many, many visits to Elba and sometimes longing for a good meal of meat.More

This is a very nice restaurant. There were three of us and we ordered the Florentine steak and tagliata steak. It was all cooked to perfection and the hostess offered to put shaved truffle on mine and I was in heaven! The wine suggested was...also perfect, a smooth Chianti to complement the food. All the deserts were fresh and heavenly. The atmosphere was formal without being pretentious and although the place was almost full with a mix of families and groups the noise level was never an issue. There was ample parking right next to the restaurant as well. This was one of the best meals we had in Elba. The price for three was approx. 150 Euros. Good value considering what we ate!More
