Dear Nanni B, Thanks for your review. I think there was a misunderstanding; I don't remember a night when I was out of grilled fish or out of beer. I hope to see you again in our restaurant, you will be able to try our grilled fish and Elba's craft beer ! Best Regards More

The restaurant offers a very nice view over Capoliveri. We tried different types of fish and it was great! I recommend it also if you travel with the family, there is a big garden and plenty of space for kids

This restaurant, which lies on a beautiful hillside, serves delicious food and a great selection of wine. We tried their fritto misto, seafood risotto and pastas. Everything was cooked decently and also the staff was very nice. Definitely recommend it.

Family run restaurant just outside the main town. Need a car to practically arrive, but if you do, it is much easier with this restaurant outide town to find local. Top notch food and service, a step up in price of about 2 euro per plate, but overall charges loower than some other establishments.
