We have been to this restaurant at tuesday 21st of august. We made a reservation to sit outside at the lovely piazetta.
Antipasti were not that special and the price for the quality was too high. The secondi piatti was excellent. Very tasty, we enjoyed.
But the service was so bad, which I have not expected for the price. No german, no english, the side dishes were served when the main dish was almost eaten.We waited 20 minutes for the bill, calling 3 times for the waiter.
This was not okay for this price- level.
That is the reason for my average ranking.

This is a great place for delicious local food cooked to the highest standards. Many locals dine here, which is always a synonym for true quality. The restaurant is located in the oldest part of the city in a traditional building which makes it also a nice place for the eye. My tip: when you book, ask for a table in the main room, where you can see the chefs and cooks at work!

This is a great restaurant, serving local specialties so intense in taste they will leave a very long-lasting impression. The look and feel of the place are quite informal, the location is just off the tourist path, the dishes do not look overly refined. This is probably why some people may be shocked to see the higher-than-average prices. But for this quality it is soo worth it. Best food we had (and the competition was stiff!) during our entire stay in Elba.

The restaurant is located in a small street outside the piazza, so you will need to look for it a little bit. Reservation in high season is strongly recommended. They offer a selection of Italian cuisine with a very local touch, for example the sea urchin or octopus dishes. The wine list is excellent and prices are still reasonable. Do not miss the pasta with astice or the eggs of the sea urchin!
