All stops among Portoferraio flavours you should not quit: fresh seafood, first-class cooking, Elba wine. A great choice of special dishes considering their farm to table quality and the organic food productions. Enjoy your meal!
Let’s just say it: Portoferraio is never out of great food and wine. If you have some time to plenty enjoy a good meal, there are several possibilities available, starting nearby the landing docks.
The setting of the Medicean marina is the perfect landing place to discover some of the best enogastronomic choice of Portoferraio: from the delicious appetizers of “La Tonnina” boutique-bar to the crudites of “Salamoja”, not forgetting wines and distilled products of “Calata Mazzini 15” where you can also enjoy some sweet snacks with their typical “Elba taste”.
If you would like to enjoy a traditional Elba-flavoured lunch where simplicity and taste combined with a beautiful view to the “Torre della Linguella”, there is nothing better than an open air table at the “Osteria Libertaria” with its great choice of dishes. As they say: appetite comes with eating!
Until the second half of the 18th Century, the Linguella tower (also known as the Torre del Martello, or Hammer Tower, due to its shape) was mainly used for storing salt and for processing the annual tuna catch, then it was converted into a prison.
The town’s defences were gradually reinforced from 1570 onwards, even under the direction of Bernardo Buontalenti, and were used to provide accommodation for the armed forces as well as important look-out posts.
