Pasta better than pizza

If you are going to eat here choose pasta and stay away from the pizza. The food is nothing special of impressive. The views are much better but not enough to remove the tourist trap impression.

If you like fresh fish and a stunning view I would recommend this restaurant. We have lunched and dined at La Timpa many times and have never been disappointed. Pasta with cuttlefish (black ink), seafood risotto, red mullet (fried) all superb!!

Although the restaurant has a very nice terrace overlooking the sea, the starters were absolutely tasteless, the bruschettte pure garlic and the pizzas average.

Overlooking the sea, this restuarant is in a beautiful location. Food is tasty and perfectly good. We are vegetarians are were happy but the seafood looked amazing. The staff were charming. Maybe the 3/5 is a little harsh but for us this for the food. Ie the mozzarella in the caprese was not that great.

We stopped by this restaurant for a drink and so enjoyed sitting in the sunshine overlooking the Mediterranean that we stayed for lunch. The waiter was very friendly, helpful and attentive. We could watch the chef working in the open kitchen across the narrow street. Altogether a very pleasant couple of hours.
