Served by two brilliant waiters who were friendly and really helpful. It had a real family feel to it. Actually Cavo is a lovely place. I wished we... More

We had dinner too early (7pm), so the atmosphere was not so great. Started with the antipasti of the chef, which are a nice selection of seafood.

Some of the best sea food that I ate whilst on Elba. The mussels to start were the best I had whilst there and the BBQ's fish that I had for main was also very good. The staff speak limited English, something quite common on Elba, but helped us as much as they could when ordering. Wine was very tasty.

My wife and I had dinner in this lovley waterfront restaurant. I really enjoy the appetizer and the pasta, all of fish, although the portion could be little more abundant. We had a fantastic Elba wine!! Really good relation between quality and cost.

Thank Tittto
