Absolutely amazing! You can chose fish dishes or meat dishes and both are great! Also pasta is very good! If you are in Porto Azzurro you have to eat in this amazing place. Staff is very gentle and friendly. Everything you can expect from a typical Italian restaurant!

We went to La Tavernetta in July 2015 on a warm sunny day. The service was excellent and the staaf does really everything to please their customers. The carpaccio of octopus was just delightful and the squid al diavola was perfect. If you visit Porto Azzuro, a must to visit. The prices are not cheap, but worth every cent. The... More

I would recommend this restaurant, but it was not without flaws. Some dishes were terrible (the Caprese was the worst we've had), and others were excellent (the Tuscan soup.) The wine list was great with many options at a wide variety of prices, and the waiter seemed to really know his wines (although, because he spoke Italian and we spoke... More

This is a lovely setting and we wanted to enjoy it but nearly everything let us down. We asked for an Elban wine recommendation, but we didn't like it at all. Not the end of the world as everyone's taste is different but the local wine the night before was very good. The starter of ham and melon was nice,... More

In a period of two years I have been a steady guest at La Tavernetta. This without having any other reasons than wanting good food and wine - and of course a nice time - for a reasonable price at my repeated visits to Elba. I have tried many different restaurants on this island, but I always come back to... More

It's possible the expectations after one week in Tuscany with sensational and charming Slow Food restaurants were unrealistic, but La Tavernetta in Porto Azzurro was really a disappointment. The service and view were ok, but the the food is boring, ordinary and expensive compared with what you get. It's maybe unfair to use the word tourist trap about this place,... More
