Service 10/10: Daniele was super entertaining and nice, he explained every dish and also opened and carved my crab to prevent me from staining my dress! 👗 Food 10/10: delicious from the antipasto to the dessert, I recommend the crab ravioli and the peaches tiramisu...😍 🦀 🍨 Location 10/10: a perfect view of the bay and the sea + Pianosa and Montecristo; amazing sunset also 🌅More

Perhaps our expectations were too high based on being #1 Elba restaurant in Tripadvisor, but we dis not find that being anything special. The view and location is good (even if parking is an issue), but service and the food is just average. Prawns were...too “watery”, swordfish was a bit undercooked. Except perhaps desert - cheesecake was very good.More

This restaurant may be one of hundreds on the Island of Elba offering a wonderful array of seafood plates (as do many on the island) but what stands out for us is the quality of service, its location and of course the chef's outstanding skills....You haven't experienced the Island of Elba unless you visit the Trattoria de Pesce in Capoliveri.More

Warm and friendly welcome. Menu described to us to help us choose the right dish. Beautiful, relaxed venue. Food was amazing and for a great price. This is a must when in Elba!!

You can’t go Go to Elba Island and just not go to Trattoria di pesce il giardino!! I am Italian and have to deal with a couple of food allergies and this restaurant was prepared to offer alternative which were yammy. Unfortunately we found out...about this restaurant towards the end of our stay at Elba Island otherwise we would have spent every evening there! Great food, great staff, great locationMore

Food: Only one out of three in our party enjoyed their main. The pistachio-crusted tuna steak was excellent. However, the gnocchi were swimming in a greasy sauce with white fish and not enjoyable. The tuna Elba-style was uninspired and full of bones (hubby was very...unhappy with it). Service: No real help in translating the menu into either English or German (perhaps this is to be expected; sharing FYI). Service was slow, especially when we didn’t want desert and asked for the bill. Price: Meals were on the expensive side and to our utter annoyance about €20 of additional food items, that we hadn’t ordered or received, were added to our bill (this does not count the cover charge per person). View: Very nice, but there many nice views on Elba.More

The best dinner my wife and I have had in Capoliveri. The food is absolutely sensational and the quality matches the ambience and views from the trattoria. You must eat here if you are ever fortunate enough to visit the Island of Elba in Tuscany...Italy. Vittorio and Daniele are fantastic hosts and chefs Mina and Manuele really know what good food is all about. This restaurant should be considered for Michelline stars.More

Great place to eat sea food in Capoliveri. One can find here local, simple and very tasty dishes made of fresh, local products. Local is run by friendly and hospitable owners. We visited this place twice during our stay in Capoliveri and each time we...left this place fully satisfied.More

Small but comfortable. It's cosy and you can see that the furniture have been researched and personalised; the view is really good, and I think that it's difficult to find a similar one in the town. It's a family business, so expect the best of...the best of the Italian food (in the selection and in how it has been cooked). For my point of view, the difference has been the service: you can feel that they're at your service.More
