Tucked away in a backstreet, do not expect typical tourist fare of pasta and pizza. Instead, you will be served amazing, modern seafood of the highest quality, with unusual flavour combinations that have been carefully thought out and balanced. We had a table opposite the...More

Nice quiet street in Portoferraio where we found Pepenero. Great windows to show the kitchen which appeared clean and with a relaxed atmosphere. We were served by the owner (We guessed) and a kind waiter. Opening with a tiny appetizer offered by them. I had...More
