We had a nice night here on the Semi (Italy v Germany) Food is better than average,calamari looked great (wish I'd had that),but our mains (swordfish and steak in mushroom sauce) both hit the mark. Expect to be in for the night,the owners think along the same lines so be patient would be my advice. I'm guessing but they don't... More

Waitress messed up the drinks and the food. Then we waited a very long time for the wine and we had to ask twice for the bill... If that's not enough, the food was not even close to be average. Overall a very bad experience. They're lucky to be on a top location. My two cents: find another restaurant!

First of all, the service was very slow. For example, after waiting for 20 minutes after we finished eating we had to ask for service to get the bill. Then we had to wait another 20 to pay. The food tasted bad, almost artificial. The only good thing was the view, which displays the marina.

After a beautiful week in Elba we wanted to close the week with a nice dinner. After walking around for a bit we ended up at l'Approdo. The owner showed us our table and he was in a hurry. In fact, the whole staff appeared to be in a hurry and they didn't notice us waving that we would at... More

The saying says See Naples and then Die! Well, I would say see, eat Napoleaten and then die. Fantastic food and location opposite the sea front where we enjoyed our lunch in a fully packed restaurant. The service, the food, the wine and the price was unbeatable. Ask for Mariano who was born in the USA!

L'Approdo is undoubtedly the best restaurant experience we got on our trip to Italy. Run by a couple who has passion for food, their staff (ask for Malino) is equally passionate. We were a group of 6 people (5 vegetarians). Malino made sure we had the best food of our trip. We dont remember seeing the menu. His knowledge about... More

We (three families with children) spent a week in Marina di Campo, and ate several dinners and lunches at L'Approdo. This is a family-run restaurant... owner and wife work along other waiters. The restaurant looks a lot more modern than most others, maybe not as picturesque as one would expect in a small Italian village, but the modern is in... More

Had a great meal at this restaurant. Terrific pizza and beautifully cooked fish of the day. Service was very good. Our waiter, who may have been the owner, had good English and was friendly and helpful. We counted this as one of the best pizzas we had in our latest 12 day trip to Italy.
