While spending the night at the nearby Novotel, I made the short walk to Il Timone. This is, as others say, a seafood restaurant, with fresh seafood and nice presentation. I enjoyed the octopus salad (chopped octopus with olive oil and lemon, what else do you need?), pasta with lobster meat (presented with the tail on the plate), and roasted... More

First of all, it's basically fish restaurant. You won't find any esoteric dishes, neither strange food. It's all about the typical Italian fish and seafood. And everything is prepared in a good way. Very fresh and tasty food. While having dinner we have seen a fisherman bringing a big grouper. The service is very kind and polite and really respectful... More

Decided to try this restaurant after reading the reviews of how good this place was.. What a let down. Terrible service and equally terrible food. Would not recommend this place to a dog. We were staying at the nearby Novotel and their restaurant food is so much better we ended up having dessert there!

This is a Michelin restaurant with local price! It is specialised in seafood. The food and service were excellent. Though the place is out of town. Unless you are staying in nearby Novotel hotel, it is not easily reachable. We would definitely eat here again.

We were blown away by this neighborhood restaurant frequented by a business crowd and locals. Charming décor and ambiance. Impeccable service. The food was sublime; fresh caught local seafood and pasta perfectly done, beautiful presentation, outrageous deserts, don’t miss the Baba and Sfogliatella! Loved the baked fish in salt crust, zuppa di pesce, seafood risotto. Reasonable prices. We went back... More

My wife and I have been going to this restaurant for many many years. If you like fish, then this is for you. The food is top quality, and you will want to return over and over again. There is absolutely nothing to fault this experience. We have taken many friends and they, like us are very happy to reccomend... More
