We were told to come here from a friend who is from Capoliveri and it was the best advice we could have hoped for !
We decided to go for meat and ended up having the Best fiorentina steak we have had in a long time. The resturant is welcoming and the staff was helpful and made sure we were happy with our choices .
Highly recommend if you find yourself in Elba!

Good meat but bad service and too expensive we were really upset about the lack of professionality of the waiter and the lack of courtesy.

We really liked this restaurant. We stopped by for lunch as we were passing.
Had an enjoyable meal and booked to come back for dinner the following night.
We were welcomed back and again the food and service did not disappoint.
I would probably describe as a fish restaurant. Well, certainly in the antipasti and the pasta courses. In the main courses there was a good list of fish choices, but also a list of Angus steaks. I went for the T Bone, medium rare. Just delightful. Our children (7 and 9) were made as welcome at dinner as they had been at lunch. My daughter recommends the Octopus Stew.
There is a extensive wine list at sensible prices.
We would definitely go back if on Elba.

I had a guest from Sweden who did not want to eat just fish when he came to Elba. So from a recommendation given by someone from the island I took him to Pilade, where it was said that meat should be really good. The meat was alright, but everything else was miserable! They served our plates with more than ten minutes difference! Nearly no excuses at all. We felt like the usual stupid tourists to be taken advantage of. (We are not!) Needless to say, I never went back there since, though many, many visits to Elba and sometimes longing for a good meal of meat.

This is a very nice restaurant. There were three of us and we ordered the Florentine steak and tagliata steak. It was all cooked to perfection and the hostess offered to put shaved truffle on mine and I was in heaven! The wine suggested was also perfect, a smooth Chianti to complement the food. All the deserts were fresh and heavenly.

The atmosphere was formal without being pretentious and although the place was almost full with a mix of families and groups the noise level was never an issue.

There was ample parking right next to the restaurant as well.
This was one of the best meals we had in Elba. The price for three was approx. 150 Euros. Good value considering what we ate!
