We went for dinner here and luckily got a table for 2 on short notice. They serve the most fresh fish you can possibly get. The waiter shows you the “catch of the day” in a cooler box: Fish which was caught the same morning....They serve it well prepared with fresh veggies. Also their traditional pasta is great (orichette pasta). The place is in a quiet courtyard. The service is great. And prices are fair. I highly recommend to try it.More

Find this place in TripAdvisor, so me & my partner decide to try for ourselves. Friendly staff, cosy environment. Many special thanks especially to Luca who personally welcome us...not only with his warmth personality, he is a great Host who recommends us of their specialities....A place worth visit. Even the owner comes out just to say hello to the diners around. Will definitely come again next time. Looking for good food, nice ambience, friendly environment. This is the place worth visiting. Thanks again all especially Luca. It's a pleasure ❤More

Wonderful atmosphere, great waiters and outstanding food. We always come here for the "Orecchiette al ragu di manzo" and we have never been disappointed.

Nice restaurant with orecchiette and other foods from Puglia but You never forget that You are at Elba island.

Food was excellent, especially crams and pasta with seafood. Fried seafood was good although the striped red mullet is quite a cheap fish so I wouldn't say it's worth the price (16 euros). I also didn't like that there were animals allowed inside the restaurant....I don't mind them in the outdoor area but a big cat and a guest's dog was a bit off putting for me. Other than that amazing food and friendly staff.More

At first when I saw the place from down the street I thought it was somebody’s house because there were clothes hanging from the apartments upstairs :) But then I heard the noise made by a bunch of people in there. The looks of it...were not so good...but in places like this you can find the true hidden gems of real italian food. The restaurant is indeed “hot in demand” and full all the time. You should make a reservation if you want to go otherwise you won’t find a place outside. The food is ok, not amazing but ok. Tables are full all the time which is good for them but this felt very cramped for me and I didn’t like it. The service is ok but the heat coming from the kitchen is overwhelming...at least it was for me..They have an open kitchen so that you can see how the food is made..great idea but this combined with the fact that is August we couldn’t rezist to stay there more than a minute after finishing our meal..Overall if you are in holiday here in Elba -Portoferraio, you should try this place for the orrechiette and trofie pasta.More

If you are looking for an okay restaurant with not to responsive staff... this is the place for you. The food is absolutely not bad, but its average at best. The wine sellection is moderate as well. The location is unexpected. All in all, is...it worth a visit? Maybe yes because of its location.More

Menu was only in Italian, waitress struggled to translate all the dishes. Food was very bland and the service was very slow. There were not many customers so would have thought they would have been more attentive. The view is nice but, so that's why...I give them 2 starts.More
