Diner Reviews
  • "The mussels are a must have. The service and dinner were perfect. If you just want a drink, the bar is very roomy. I cannot wait to go back."

  • "Strip steak was smaller than expected. Water glass had fly in it. Gorgonzola cheese melted on filet had plastic wrap still melted onto the cheese. Waitress was working inside and outside, so it took awhile to get her attention and there was a long lag between apps and main courses. The overall experience was disappointing and we see no reason to return given the number of better restaurants in the area."

  • "I HAVE BEEN IN THIS RESTAURANT SEVERAL TIMES, MY WIFE AND I LIKE THE LIVE MUSIC AND THE AMBIENCE, MY WIFE'S FAVORITE ARE THE MUSSELS , SHE SAYS THE BEST IN TOWN. STAFF VERY ACCOMMODATING AND TRY TO MAKE OUR DINNER VERY PLEASANT. THE FOOD IN GENERAL WAS GOOD WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE BREAD PUDDING DESSERT, TO HARD AND DRY. THE WAITER ASK US HOW WAS IT AND WHEN WE TOLD HIM HE TOOK THE DESSERT OFF THE BILL. WE WILL CERTAINLY BE BACK MANY TIMES."

  • "Muscles were good, very tender with a hint of seasoning; veal was a bit tough but very tasty; oso imbuco and risotto were outstanding. Chocolate cake was to die for, worth every calorie. Black Russian was just right so were the martinies."

  • "This once excellent restaurant lost it's manager Michael, a few months back and it shows, reception at front desk was still excellent the server Josh was excellent, but the food came out cold and the overall experience was disappointing ! And the neighborhood has changed, nothing Timpanos can do about that, but it went from an upscale location to now a huge sports bar next door and another called Fan attics across the street that bring a noisier crowd .....not to this restaurant , but it definitely puts a different spin on this once more upscale place....and at this time there is no management ....and it shows. Unfortunately, after all these years , we will not be going back. Theo"

  • "Great spot on Las Olas with the Best of Everything Ft Laud has to offer. Awesome bar with music, great service and a fun place to dine for both locals and out of towners too. The mussels are the Best anywhere and a must try."

  • "The food and service were very good and it is a very nicely decorated restaurant. It was expensive but I expected that. Unfortunately, the noise level was so high that it was very difficult to enjoy ourselves or carry on any kind of normal conversation. Others might find this acceptable but it would probably keep me from returning."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We were a little disappointed with our table, close to the kitchen, bathrooms and traffic. Mussels were excellent. Relatively good wine list. Service was good. Waitress was friendly and helpful. Noise level was a little high. Overall a good experience."

  • "This was my second experience with Timpano's Must have "lucked out" the first time with food and service, but this was atrocious.People packed in so closely, it was almost impossible for servers to make their way through. We were a party of six. I don't mind paying high prices for food, but the "petite filet" was the size of a meatball, and side dishes all a la carte.Our server did his best, but there was an extremely long wait for our dinners. My meal was three scallops. The salads were at least generous and saved us all. Oh yes, and the slat missing on the floor beneath my seat, almost caused me to topple over. The waiter was apparently aware of it, but gave no cautionary warning. Too many good restaurants to tolerate this one. Too bad."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "I was at this restaurant three times before and enjoyed it every time. This time food and service was at best mediocre. The waiter fast talking and rushing while talking to me and the guests. Clams skillet had half of the clams not opened, the tuna that should been seared at best saw the heat for a minute and was COLD, the waiter kept dirty dishes on the table and never checked with us.Restaurant was not busy. I may give them one more try but bad service and food all at once is hard to digest."

  • "Chicken picatta was great two large chicken breasts and the sauce was amazing. Two drinks,one appetizer,two meals and a side dish was $70 and we both had take away boxes. Definetly going back"

  • "Overall a nice dining experience. Perhaps a bit pricey. Examples: scallops $25 for three scallops. A mahi mahi special cost $35and that is not an expensive fish."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Mussels were the only highlight. Fish was so so. Steak and veal chop arrived cold and it took forever. Sadly I can never recommend this place.not worth the money!"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Food was very good and the atmosphere was good for a business dinner. Unlike other times I have been there, the noise level was not bad and easy to have a conversation."

  • "Timpano is a great place fir lmost any occasion..big city atmosphere...Good food. Always good service."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The layout of tables are horribly done since the service people walk by all sides of your table. There's no quite corner in this place. The closer you get towards the service's station the louder it gets. Workers have no regard for your dinning experience with flatware being thrown around every second. If they have live entertainment you can't hear. Salmon was overcooked although we asked for medium. Same goes for the NY strip."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Food was very good. Service was not very attentive, Although waitress was friendly she never came around. When our desserts were delivered we asked for some extra plates to share and they never came so we just had to make do. Never were offered a drink refill. My husbands meal was wrong, he ordered chicken piccata and chicken Marsala arrived. One thing, I ordered the filet and got the Marsala cream sauce. Don't do this as it was the consistency of water. Everything else was great."

  • "I had put a group of 6 friends together for a dinner at Timpano,After ordering our drinks, I raved about the special mussels and despite their small size this time of year,everyone enjoyed this appetizer. The unfortunate part was that soon after we were seated,our waiter had disappeared.! It took some time to sort out why we weren't being taken care of,and finally another waiter filled in for the first one.We had some dinner salads after our mussels,and finished with coffee. Despite the tasty food,the evening was somewhat diasappointing. Hopefully the next time will be better....."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "We were expecting a LOT more from this Italian "Chop House". Food was average (at best) and overpriced. Side pasta was actually WAY over cooked too! Our waiter was very nice and knowledgeable, but since the tables are SO close to each other, the waitress from another table kept bumping into my wife while serving her table.....with not even an apology! We were truly looking forward to dining here, but we left very disappointed. When we look for another Italian dining experience, we'll seek another place, sorry."

  • "This place still does well despite increased competition. Food is good and there is a variety of dishes for lunch from salads to more solid food. Service is efficient and one can get in and out quickly if needed."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "Great choice of dishes. Six of us shared an assortment of appetizers ranging from mussels and clams to meatballs and pasta. Everything was superb, but tell them to go easy with the salt on the clams. Nice atmosphere and not too noisy, Good service and reasonably priced. Will definitely dine there again when I return to FT. Lauderdale."
