“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

Again a great experience. The farinata was wonderful I could not stop eating it although a little filling. We also had Testaroli al pesto and the local Sgabei for dessert. It was just wonderful.
The owner, a super nice lady suggested us a wine which we loved. The atmosphere is just great. I definitively recommend it.

We were in portovenere for 3 days and found il timone the best most foreign friendly restaurant in town. all the dishes we had were very good....soup, pizza...dessert.....we loved it.....the lady, maybe the owner not sure, was also very lovely and accommodating.......no hidden cover charge like many others in the area....just good food and nice atmosphere.

We had no food here, we only had coffee, dessert and wine.
Very nice lady, and we were shopping a lot of beautiful hand-painted glass :-)
