We were visiting Tampa and we took our son and his girlfriend there on their recommendation. We were not disappointed. I had the filet with the bourbon peppercorn sauce and it was amazing. One of the best steaks I have had in months. The restaurant was a little noisy due to several large parties having a good time, but the service was great. Next time I will choose to sit outdoors. It will probably be quieter.

Normally very good. Was a little disappointed with the veal and wild mushroom dish. Very bland no real flavor, needed a lot of salt and pepper.
Service was good. But I have had a lot better there,

We arrived right on schedule
We arrived right on schedule and were promptly seated. We shared a house salad for an appetizer. It was a very Mediterranean salad with a light vinaigrette dressing olives and blue cheese. The cocktails were excellent. My friend had the salmon and I the petite fillet. Both beautifully prepared and plated. The steak was ala carte so I also have the asperagus which were beautifully grilled.
I had been to the Timpano's in Ft Lauderdale and this was very similar.

First time for dinner, not the last
We had lunch at Timpano several years ago and recalled it as good but not outstanding. We shop, and eat at other restaurants in Hyde Park from time to time and decided to try Timpano for dinner. We were very glad we did! The sea scallop entree was excellent, as was the roasted salmon. Everything was prepared and presented well, and served hot. We had a great outside table and the service was excellent - not pushy, but informed and well-paced. We will definitely be back for dinner....and will likely give lunch another try after this experience.

Great food great service
We went to celebrate a birthday and we are glad we did. Dinner was excellent. Our server was great- jovial and attentive. The live Sinatra style music was fun. and not so loud we couldn't speak to each other. It is a bit pricey but not at all pretentious. We really enjoyed the night.

The food, service and atmosphere were truly amazing and comfortable. The various blend of flavors in their food is indescribably amazing in taste. If you are disabled and let them know when making reservations, they will find a booth with cushioned seat and back for you as well as any other accommodations you may need. It adds to the uniqueness and quality of the Hyde Park Village experience. Thank You.

Great Food and Very Lively Spot
Excellent quality steak. Plus, you can order almost anything on the menu and have a wonderful meal (unlike many other chop / steak houses). The atmosphere is a bit too lively and loud, but hard to fault the restaurant given the active crowd that accumulates there.

We were seated and greeted within three minutes by Ana, who always proves to be knowledgeable and confident in her food and beverage suggestions. We began with mussels with Lobster Butter & Sea Salt served in a sizzling skillet near over flowing with the tasty black barnacles. From their our culinary journey took us to Tuscany as we shared a bowl of the Pasta Bolognese. Perfectly temperate, with a gentle steam of heat carrying the aroma of Italian herbs into the air. With a full belly, and our bottle of La Crema empty, we finished the meal with espresso. Ana thanked us as she drifted back to the kitchen, the hostess thanked us as we floated out the door, and the valet, Paul, already had our car pulled around.

Attended on a Friday night, good energy, excellent live jazz, large portions but still high quality, romantic yet also energetic. Reasonably priced, but make sure to check with your server as some items are a la carte, but no listed as such. Overall, it's a gem in Tampa by my standards. Definitely will be back for the next date night :)

We have never been disappointed...Always delicious.

We have been to Timpano's several times in the past. We always enjoy the small band, and that was why we chose to return this time. We were it disappointed -- the band was terrific. This is not a restaurant made for two --it has a number of booths for groups larger than two, and the couples are squeezed in. Our table was near the etnrance so nearly anyone entering had to walk by us. The food was not great this time; the veal marsalla was heavy. We love the valet parking, however. The everything-a-la-carte menu means that a salad to accompany the dinner costs extra; it should be inlcuded in the price, but that is a decision of the restaurant.

South Tampa Gem
As always food was great and consistent .
Had a new server that could use a little more training
As far as knowledge of both food and wine menu .
Other than that he was very pleasant

Terrific Food & Fun
We enjoy Timpano for dinner regularly, but were especially impressed when our larger group of 3 couples celebrated a special occasion. We made a night of this experience. Everything was top notch from the reservation confirmation to the last sip of coffee.
I would highly recommend!

Favorite place in Tampa
Best mussels and Sunday brunch hands down, with $12 unlimited mimosas and Bloody Mary bar.

Dinner was fantastic, we had filet, a wedge salad and the 4 cheese flat bread. The chef and manager came to our table to check on our meal. Our waiter was very attentive and the music was fantastic!

Timpano never lets us down. The food and service are consistently outstanding, right down to the valet!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
I ordered the housemade lasagna, and my wife had the eggplant [Italian name that I cannot pronounce]. Both dishes were excellent. I loved the cheeses and ate the entire portion. My wife ate half of hers, and enjoyed another meal at the house the next day with the other half. The bar is superb! If you are looking for a good meal, have out of town guests that you wish to treat well, or just want a relaxing night out, this is the place for you.

Great for any occasion
This place is great for any occasion and one of Tampa's best overall restaurants. The mussels are the best you can get anywhere. Highly recommended.

service was great
After reading some comments, i was somewhat apprehensive, however the service was really fast, attentive, and quite knowledgeable of entire menu. Definitely would recommend the place to friends.

Definetly a good choice for Italian food. The ambiance is perfect and there is someting for everyone. The open kitchen is impressive, you can see your food being prepared and the chefs are very talented. Not only does the food look good but it tastes awesome.

Over the Top Experience
I had my first date here with my girlfriend 3 1/2 years ago and we fell in love with place, last week I brought her back to propose to her and the staff made it a night we will never forget, the turned a special night into a unforgettable night. The food and the service is unmatched and we will return here for man years!!!!

This was the perfect spot to celebrate my Dad's birthday. The food was incredible and the server was friendly and professional. The Osso Bucco was tender and delicious as was the Veal Marsala. Two members of our party ordered filet mignon, both were cooked perfectly. Love this place!
