Had dinner and overall service was very good, but food was mediocre. Calamari fritti were eatable but not amazing, the beef was not very tasty, pesto basilico penne for the kids were very good, though. Would go there for the penne again, but not the rest.

Charming atmosphere, friendly owner and staff, small but original menu. Will definitely return. But need to book as tables are few!

Andrea at "Il Mandorlo" suggested this little cozy restaurant to us, saying: if you want to eat well and, somehow, something different, you should go there; well, we went, twice, which is unusual for us, since this is the place to go. Just a few selections, as it's supposed to be for a small local restaurant, but always fresh and... More

Great Tuscan cooking in a beautiful outdoor setting. Quirky furniture sitting outside and well spread out so it feels like you're sitting in your own garden. Great fresh fish and yummy Tiramisu. Friendly host family make you feel at home.

This restaurant was an unique experience, hide from very crowded place, in the middle of the country. The service was excellent, I had one of the best meal ever, the food was awesome, you can struggle to find a place like that, where you can taste the real Tuscan food.

Visiting Elba with my mother and we did some searching before dinner and came across raving reviews for Zenzero. I am so glad we decided to go! I can see how it may not be super busy, because it is off the beaten oath, but it is great. They do grilled items outside on a wood fired grill, and it... More

We almost walked straight past this restaurant, sadly it was fairly empty and somehow not particularly welcoming (at least from what we could see from the outside). We are so glad we went in. Lo Zenzero is situated on a dirt track (for want of a better description) not far from the back of the Lacona Hotel and close to... More
