We ate at Il Timone after arrival mg at Ponza. Located right by the port, the restaurant was clean and inviting. The food was good and the waitress was very hospitable, but 8 Euro for a simple side salad???? Our simple lunch was 50 Euros. Way too much for food that was good, but not great.

We had swordfish here and it was absolutely lovely. Do not understand reviews that hosts were noisy as we found them welcoming and kind. Loved it here!

Very interesting thing happened to us. We have been there twice. First time was outstanding and the portions were big, we even got another pasta, because it was so good. Next day the food portions were double small, staff wasn't as nice, trying to sell as much. We didn't quite get what was the reason for such a change in... More

We went there attracted by the good smell and the nice location of the restaurant while passing by in the street. We took each a primi (vongole and frutti di mare) and got two plates of pasta where some poor seafood lost in our plate that were very disappointing. Everything served by a rude waiter, who we had the impression... More

Me and Fiancé stopped at this restaurant for lunch today and we enjoyed the food, it was relatively busy and there were quite a few tourists enjoying the food too. We don't speak Italian so it was a little difficult to read the menu which is totally fine, we just went with what we thought it meant. It wasn't the... More

An unformal trattoria with an extremely friendly staff. A good price/quality ratio. It does not offer the best in town but it is the perfect alternative for an easy meal. I had pizza and it was good!
