Perfect for a regenerating break. Located near the Fortezza Pisana, it offers a great view over Monte Capanne and the valley, down to the sea. This year the municipality has granted the use of the large and beautiful terrace right 20 meters from the main...location, I guess that at night it offers a great setting with the Fortezza Pisana on the back and the view of the bay in the front. The cuisine is genuine and tasty: I had panzanella and then also one schiaccina (probably the best I ever had in the island). Staff is very friendly...at the end a place to go if you are in MarcianaMore

So much for a place with a great potential. We were thrilled to visit the restaurant and indeed the beginning was promising. Entries were excellent and tasty. The main problem was with the main courses. We were 5 and 2 of us got their plates...about 30 minutes after we finished entries (what???). After 20 minutes another 2 plates arrived. The last guy had to wait 20 more minutes but we already gave up and wanted to leave the place (wtf? how long does it take to cook a fish?!?!). The meat was not cooked properly and I couldn't even chew some of it. Seafood soup was nice but very small - guys, this is not a main course! fishes was also small and unsatisfying. get a grip of yourselves.More

Our group visited Monilli at four o’clock just for refreshment. We had the pilsener beer that gave the name for this kind - Pilsner Urquell. I have to say that it is perfectly served in cooled and clean glass and in very good shape. It...is nice to see that on Elba they can serve this beer as it should be.More

There is Pilsner Urquell beer. This is best beer on Elba Island. I'm from Pilsen/Plzen/CZ. I know it!

I must admit we came over as TripAdvisor reviews were good, otherwise we wouldn't have found it... and it was a good tip. The place is a good looking, refreshing terrace with a nice views on the hills and nearby villages. The food is all...home made and frankly excellent. It was lunchtime so we wanted to have a light meal, but we ended up with great hand made pasta, amazing cold cuts and a variety of local cheeses. The list of desserts was equally enticing but diet prevailed... Very friendly service, it truly deserves another visit. Unless you are a burger seeker, you won't be disappointed.More

A little bit hard to find if walking up through the village - more signs please! However it is right next to the old castle which has a carpark if you dont feel like the walk. The restaurant is perched on the side of the...hill and overlooks the chairlift and valley, a very calming view with a lovely gentle breeze. There is "indoors" as well. The food is simple but beautifully prepared dishes full of flavour. We had the house egg pasta with beef ragu. Perfect. Lyn had to try the chocolate torte - OK I had some too. Delicious. The house wine and coffee were goo. Service was friendly and efficient. Lovely people.More

Just had lunch there. We were greeted by the friendly staff that also spoke very good English. Lunch has just a limited menu, but still more than enough choice for a good lunch. Bruschetta were very nice, as was the pasta with the meat ragout....Greek salad was also very nice, overall a very nice and enjoyable experience. Price was definitely ok for this restaurant. Would go there again.More

We stumbled across this little place while wandering around the scenic village of Marciana. While the food was excellent what really makes this place is incredible view with tables that feel perched in the hills. We arrived at the peak of the lunchtime madness so...it took a while for the staff to get to us with menus etc but it really didn't matter because the setting was such a treat. The owner apologized profusely for the delay. The menu is simple and the food we ordered - sandwiches, bruschetta etc - was simple and delicious. And the prices were extremely reasonable.More
