Despite Porto Azzurro being one of the busiest tourists' destination in Elba Island you can have a dining experience in this restaurant. Pasta with octopus was excellent and the same for codfish (two different varieties tried). I had a great palamita. Expect 30-40 euro per person w/o wine. A deal everywhere. The nice setting in a small court is worth... More

Recommended to everyone for the great service and excellent food, presentation of dishes and atmosphere. Outside seating is possible and very romantic, we had a beautiful evening and we really enjoyed the place, definitely one of the best at Elba.

On our last night we went here after hearing good things. The garden was beautiful and the food beautifully prepared and presented. The glass fishbowl soup looked amazing brimming with prawns, polpo, fish, clams and mussels - a beautiful gastronomic presentation. The misto of meats and cheese was great as was the duck pasta.

We were recommended to come here by the B & B we stayed at and the choice was spot on. When we visited first it was busy, with a large party on, but even so the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming taking time to stop and talk through the dishes. The food was excellent with the pasta converting my... More

Took my guests here for dinner during a wine tour of Elba. Food was great, service was super-friendly even by Elba standards, which is already really friendly. Ricardo the owner knows his wine, and his wife is an excellent cook. Next night I went by at 11 PM to ask if he could cater a dinner on a yacht I... More

I recently stayed in Porto Azzurro and went to this restaurant twice, having booked in advance personally. The staff took great pains to make us feel welcome, explaining the dishes and making sure we had an English menu. You can eat inside and out and we did both. The carafe house wine was very nice and great value, but the... More

The Osteria has a strong character and indeed it stands out among the many good restaurants in Porto Azzuro. We had a long chat with the owner who was extremely courteous, pleasant and very knowledgeable about food and wines. His well mannered style is well reflected in the food selection and preparation. We had an outstanding Stoccafisso and several other... More

A very nice place where you can taste the delicious flavours of the island. The ownwer and his family propose revisited Elban dishes.

My boyfriend and I ate at this restaurant the other day, and we were absolutely thrilled with the delicious high-quality food. We shared the antipasti di mare, which had a variety of fresh caught fish prepared in an original. Finally, we ordered the octopus pasta and the ravioli with ricotta and pistachio, and we were very satisfied! It was all... More

We went to this restaurant having read the excellent reviews here. While the service was excellent(if anything too attentive), we were disappointed by food. My husband ordered beef, which was very good. I, however, ordered a cod dish, which I struggled to eat. It was probably an Elban dish cooked correctly, but was simply not very nice, as well as...
