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.

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.

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.

If you are travelling around Elba island you cannot avoid to stop for a fresh and relaxing lunch at Monilli where you can find Marina (the owner) that will suggest you the best "schiaccina" ( typical sandwich from Elba).Monilli is also the place where you can have a romantic dinner and don't forget to order the cakes that are home made!!!. It's a nice spot in Marciana!!
