A nice place with good food but it comes with a price. Service could have been better (we wanted more attention) and the 4 of us did have a table at the main terrace so no real sea view. Forno is a cute place.

Not the cheapest option on elba but a must visit for lunch or dinner if you want to enjoy a well prepared meal with fresh ingredients at a perfect location. 2nd visit in 2 elba trips and worth while every euro!
