La Rocchetta was recommended by Eric and Renata the hosts of Villa San Rocco B&B and did not disappoint. We were greeted by Davido the owner who presented a tray of the seafood options available that day including fish, octopus and lobster (still kicking).
The selected seafood was then incorporated into the menu options available - cooked as is in a variety of styles, incorporated into a pasta sauce etc.
We chose the lobster and it was delightful.
Great views over Piombino harbour and the square which seems to host some sort of celebration or event each evening.
Loved the restaurant, the staff and the food.

I’m
Not sure how to describe this restaurant. The entrance is very confusing. You enter through the main door and then pass throw some small passage to go to the restaurant which is on a Terrance. I think it’s two restaurants in one which is odd!
The workers were friendly and accommodating, there is one guy who speaks English for anyone who don’t speak Italian. The fish is fresh and most of the dishes delicious (except the pizza). The wait for the food is not long or slow... and ordering an appetizer would help (if you’re an avid restaurant diner like myself you’d know this). We were offered a bottled of proseco to begin, so you don’t necessarily have to order wine if you don’t want. The ambience is nice due to the fact that the restaurant is right there in the square. The square is gorgeous and the locals are very friendly. I loved it here, just wish I had more time to visit the town itself

I went there with a group of friends, all international, and everyone enjoyed the experience.
The location is in front of the square on the coast, where most of the time live music bands play, creating a suggestive atmosphere.
The service is excellent, as soon as we sit down they showed us immediately the "Pescato del giorno" and the menù written in a blackboard (nice touch). The starters arrived incredibly fast and they were all delicious. As a second dish we all shared a fresh Rombo. It was so delicate that literally was melting in our mouths. The wine selection was quite vast and the owner helped us to choose the ones would suit better for our dishes.
When we got to the desserts, also very tasty, the owner kindly offered us a glass of sweet Sicilian wine to match with the food. We got 5 starters, a huge Rombo to share, 6 desserts and 2 bottles of wine (Vermentini), in total we spent 50€ each, and we got also a little bit of discount.
To summarize, wonderful atmosphere, superbe service, the food was tasty, well prepared and presented. Being a restaurant owner is not for everyone, but at La Rocchetta they definitely mastered it.
I strongly recommend to visit this place if you are in Piombino or even in the surroundings, is totally worth it the visit.

Good restaurant with fanstastic view on the sea and Elba Iland. Outside sitting was OK, the pizza was tasty. The staff was OK, but I prefer more smiles and more activities from the staff.

If the table is booked, is necessary to add on the table the paper or sign "RESERVE". If this information missing, the people are nervous.

If you want some very good seafood a long with a great location at the sea this might be the place. We had some very good seafood there. Especially the crab spaghetti was good. And fun.
