Great pizza, friendly service, but sometimes slow

We've been here 3 times as it is just near our hotel. Lovely friendly owners the first time - early evening, and also the second time. Pizza excellent. Salad very good. No other options though if you're not a pizza person. The third time we went was later and there were a lot of locals present. We... read more

The children loved the pizza, in fact three generations of us loved the pizza. To be recognised and made so welcome was a delightful touch.

Pizza the way it should be made, at a price that startles only because this is Forte dei Marmi. An excellent, friendly, affordable restaurant that I hope we have the opportunity to return to many times.

Nice and relaxed. Truly good service. Perhaps a bit formal compared to other beach-restaurants. Liked the atmosphere, the direct connection to the beach. Didn´t dislike anything...

Excellent Wood Burning Pizza at reasonable price. A bit hard to find outside Forte Dei Marmi towards Marina De Massa. Watch the friendly owner single handedly serving and stopping for drinks with guests.

A fantasticly friendly and welcoming host who made us feel very at home. We choose Pizza and he gave us little hints on how to improve them. He gave us delicious tastings but most importantly we left feeling very satisfied and with big smiles. Go to Il Timone, you will not be disappointed.

Cheerful and welcoming staff. Very relaxing atmosphere and realistic about the wait time for pizza to take away. Very tasty and crispy base with excellent toppings and good value for money. Certainly one of the best in this area.

We have been to italy close to 20 times, and Il Timone has the best pizza we have had anywhere. The wood fired oven makes the crust just incredible. The waiter, Michele, is very friendly and the service is excellent. The prices are very reasonable. We would recommend this to anyone looking for great pizza.
