We've been eating at Lido's for years now and it's always as good. Wonderful seafood, alone or with pasta, fresh fish to be baked or grilled, a well-stocked wine cellar with both local and other Italian wines. It's a family-run restaurant with the Mamma, at age 78, is still cooking in the open kitchen. Service is attentive and helpful but... More

Very rarely do we revisit a restaurant when on a short holiday. This time, we were a group of 6 and everything was so good and fresh that we all wanted to go back. Every item was truly delicious and beautifully presented. The proprietor made us feel very welcome and despite the place being booked out still took the time... More

We were a group of 8 on a sailing trip to Elba. We ate well everywhere, but this was the highlight. We shared some seafood platters and some other starters, all were excellent. Four of us went for the T-Bone steaks, which were for 2, they were so large. One of the best steaks I ever had, but on an... More

This is a great restaurant off the beaten track. The calamari are not on the menu but amazing. The octopus salad is not only optically a delight. It does come at a price tho.

Excellent food and great service - you can see that it is not only visited by tourists, but it is also a local favourite. However, a bit too expensive: two of us had a starter and shared a main, a glass of wine each and the bill totalled 60€. Overall, worth a visit!

This is a family run restaurant, we met three generations of owners during the evening. The food was simply amazing, with beautiful presentation. If you order Caffe coretto, they give you an espresso and a bottle of grappa, to help yourself.

We pre booked the restaurant for dinner in the afternoon and were very glad that we did because when left the restaurant, after being the first to arrive it was full, with people lining up to get in. We chose to dine in the outside area to soak up the nightlife atmosphere, but the inside decor and environment looked lovely... More

We were pretty satisfied about this little restaurant in the heart of Portoferraio. The seafood was nice and 'cruditees' were very fresh and juicy. Service is efficient and price adeguate.

We were well looked after by Fabrizio and had a nice table on the terrace outside. The food was excellent, especially the fish and there was a sensible wine list. When I went to pay the bill I discovered his mother did the cooking. Wonderful.
