I highly recommend dining on the earlier side so you can view the exquisite sunset over the sea. The staff was extremely attentive, friendly, passionate about the menu and the local ingredients. Everything we ate was delicious, the fresh seafood was prepared perfectly. What I really love is how unassuming this place is. It is hidden at the end of... More

Excellent food and fantastic location. Make sure to book a table in the terrace during the sunset, as the view is breathtaking. Also, excellent quality of the service, which is friendly and attentive. Prices are medium-high and portions are not huge, but the quality is top notch and every dish was well worth it.

Disguised as a simple restaurant/ pizzeria in the end of the road in the beautiful bay of Viticcio. Well worth a trip from Portoferraio. Pleasent personell welcoming you to their lovely terrasse with the most stunning view. Efficient service, exellent fresh seafood, and a decent wine map. We will definitely be back- and may very well stay at Hotel Scoglio... More

I went for dinner at this restaurant one evening as we were looking for a nice view for the sunset, we were not disappointed, under the restaurant terrace you can access the sea and have a beautiful view to the sunset. But the food did not disappoint us either, I had muscles and seafood antipasti and my hubby had tuna,... More

It wasn't the first time I had been to this restaurant and in the past, the quality of the food served there has always been excellent. Unfortunately things seem to have gone down hill...for starters we had the "octopus three ways"...not sure the three ways were supposed to be bland, underwhelming and chewy..for second course I had the "calamari alla...

Our B & B owner recommended this place. Just 15 minutes from Portoferraio. Great fish. Recommend the pulpo Tre Gusti. A wonderful setting for a sunset dinner. Friendly staff.

Quite a simple place, but in a wonderful location and serving excellent food. The restaurant serves mainly locally caught fish and reassuringly doesn't have a long list of different dishes. Simple recipes, mainly familiar classics, never fail to please. Everything is tasty, freshly made, served by smiling and friendly people. A good choice of wines complements the food but you... More

This restaurant was the recommendation of a taxi driver from Portoferraio. So from that point we have started our ride to this restaurant which took us 10-15 minutes for the price of about 19,00 €. You can park your car in front of the restaurant which is located directly at the seaside. You can sit inside or outside on a... More

A short walk from our hotel, we read decent reviews of this place before making the trip. We were unsure on approach but very pleased with the experience. We were served by the most friendly wait staff on the island and the gnocchi was delicious. The menus are only in italian and the staff don't speak much english but that... More

Little and nice place very close to the sea!!! little starters with good white wine just to begin. Then they proposes 6-7 different first wonderful dishes (pasta) . Usually we select 2-3 different tastes. Then you can chose among 2 or 3 second dishes , usually steam cooked fishes. The final is with their excellent desserts made. very good service.
