A small osteria hidden in the town. Food prepared from local organic products, great wines from small producers and a incredibly warm and welcoming atmosphere. The menu has a great selection of fresh fish and meat. One of the best experiences we had on our Tuscany trip. Thank you....we will come back soon as promised.

We booked a table in this Portoferraio poor neighborood on the basis of rather enthusiastic TripAdvisor comments . The disappointment was complete . The only real positive point is the gentle and warm welcome and service from the waiters. For the rest forget it! The quality of food could have compensated for the rather shaby environment but it was not... More

Very original dishes, good price vs quality. Very friendly staff. We had two kids with us and the waiter really helped to find a matching dish. A kids spaghetti would be a nice addition to the menu though.

Excellent choice, original genuine food & good service. The only tick off i would give them is that the wine servings (by glass) aare bit too small...be a little more generous 😊. The rest great

Since my first visit to Pepe Nero -- Antonio and Marco’s jewel of a restaurant in central Portoferraio -- I have been meaning to write a review. But then each visit, each dish, each bite surpasses the previous one! This is food, service and ambience of extraordinary quality. Don’t miss it. (Note - I am born and bred in Italy,... More

What a find! Hidden away this is the best food we have experienced in Italy. A wonderful menu beautifully presented complimented with well chosen organic wines - a unique eating experience. The service is superb and the ambience is genuinely Italian. Highly recommended if you appreciate the real food flavor and fresh local products.

We were happy to get an outside table at this amazing restaurant. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the service top class, and the food was simply delicious! The ingredients are fresh and seasonal. Our lobster was still moving when they brought it to us to choose. We will certainly return to this wonderful restaurant!
