We had dinner in this restaurant during our holidays in Castellammare. First attempt was to have lunch, but barely we stopped the waiter informed that they were about to close for siesta. Another day we returned in the evening. First it was not allowed to sit outside. After waitress show us our table inside and take our orders, we realised... More

I had a lovely first evening with my wife in this restaurant. Maybe we was unlucky but the pizza was just average. I also found a piece of metal wire in my mouth and almost broke my tooth. The waiter said 'I'm sorry' - no recompense. In spite of all I found it as a lovely place with a great... More

A very good choice! Despite the fact the it could seem very touristic, here you'll find some great original sicilian meals (i'm sicilian)! I chose a gorgeous Pasta alla Norma and my friend had a super pizza Parmigiana! (Sicily is the Eggplant kingdom and you'll see that!) Located at the beginning of the pedestrian area, you'll enjoy the breathless view... More

We visited La Timpa during Ferragosto 2014, so it was very busy. But they still managed to find us a table in a reasonable time. We sat by the sea with a great view and it was really special. We had fish one evening and pizza on another evening. Both meals were great. On the second evening the waiter remembered... More

Just back from Castellammare, and we spent some time in La Timpa both to have afternoon drinks and one evening meal. The food was good value and was a reasonable price for a party of 8. We would go again.

Really good Pizza and the head waiter/owner was a real delight, exactly as you'd expect a passionate local to be, joining in conversations and making the evening fly!

Overlooking the sea with stunning sunsets, we had two great nights at La Timpa. The wine and food were great and the waiter was good fun!

We came in a at late lunch hour- and enjoyed beautiful fish (and great quantity) and this beautiful location, overlooking the sea. Actually- it was one of the best fish meals we had. Next to us we saw other people enjoying their meals.

We stopped by here after looking for a place we saw on tripadvisor,that closed in the meantime. The view is splendid from here, the staff is friendly, the food is reasonably priced and really tasty.

Having been to a number of places where we felt unwelcome this place was a breath of fresh air. Tonight it was busy and they were a chef down as he had injured his hand. The table was by the cliff with great views. Caprese salad was great and other food very good. I was sorry their sausage was frankfurter... More
