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.

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.

My girlfriend and I visited La Timpa in June 2014 and found it delightful. The fish and the service were great and the view over the water is stunning. We visited twice that week, the bruschetta, the baked sea bass and the pizza were all very good. When we decided to get married in Castellammare del Golfo in Sept 2014... More
