“Different !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2011

Although Capoliveri is one of those villages turned into a major tourist attraction, the Taverna dei Poeti does not cater to the large crowds on the outlook for a quick, cheap bite. Arrive on time (or all tables will be taken) and take your time to study the card and make your choice among the local dishes and (if you're partial to them) the Elban wines. The dishes are served with great flourish and a touch of poetry. Great fun, great atmosphere, and pretty good food -- including meat dishes, while the restaurants along the coastline tend to serve mainly seafood.

“Best fish on Elba”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2011

We go here since years. A great fish kitchen, there self-made palmita is a dream. The fettucine with lobster is perfectly prepared, all variations of tuna are impressive. They have an excellent wine menu, very broad local choice. very impressive: the choice of Elba olive oil available. We have purchased wine and oil at several occasions after having tried a bottle in the restaurant. Try to avoid to sit outside in mains eason, streams of tourists reduce the pleasure of eating at Paolo's place
