Timpano Italian Chophouse - Orlando reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Why can't we be seated in a booth?
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012VIP
    Dined on 12/31/2012
    We were seated at a bar table and told all the booths were booked. We were there 2 hours and over 50% of the booths were never filled. We will not book thru open table again when we want a booth and will call the restaurant directly. We sat at booth on thanksgiving weekend and the ambiance was totally different and booth is right for special occasion

    The food and service is always reliable at Timpano but the accoustics are not to my liking. In the evening there is music in the bar which is great but it spills over to the dining room too loud and makes conversation difficult. So, it comes down to what you are looking for - music great, food very good, service very good but difficult to converse.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 12/23/2012
    Strong recommendation by our resort concierge and previous good reviews on Open Table sent us here. We are early diners, so there was really no excuse for the lag in service except perhaps the inexperience of the server. Appetizer (carpaccio) was wonderful. My spouse's veal piccata was good, but my shrimp fra diavlo was disappointing,probably because the server's description did not match the actual dish. Wine list extensive, but they could not find our first two choices. Best part came from very attentive valet parking staff. I would not go back.

    Really enjoyed the night out with friends, our experience was great from the service to the food. Our only issue was the cost. We were not aware that everything was ala cart, so when budgeting for this night and to find this out was a little hard on the wallet. But thanks for a great night anyway..... :)

    Filet was overcooked, Risotto undercooked, one of the Managers was very inpolite, the other tried to accommodate. Waitress was young, polite but inexperienced, and needs training. The fact that the owners just recently changed is obvious. This was always one of our favorite spots! Too sad!

    My order was switched with another table and I got an undercooked steak…took more than 25 minutes to fix it…I got back an overcooked piece of meat almost when my other friends were finishing there meal…a restaurant of such level should not have this type of mistakes. The plate was deducted from the bill but that was not the reason of my visit. Attention to details is vital Thank you

    My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary here. It was perfect! We really enjoyed the live music in the lounge area - soft and appropriate. The service was great! The food was delicious and well presented. I would love their recipe for polenta. It was a great special occasion restaurant. Too bad we are from out of town. We wish there was a restaurant like this where we live.

    We planned to sit in the lounge and listen to the jazz before heading to the dinning room for dinner at seven. We enjoyed the lounge area and music so much that we stayed there for dinner. The food was very good and the music was wonderful. The vocalist Michelle Amato is very friendly as well as talented.

    Service was great! (From the valet service, serveres, chefs, and managers) The food was excellent and wine list was pretty good. Only one drawback, The place was very busy and the acoustics create an atmophere were it becomes hard to hold a conversation with even the person next to you. So not so great for a quiet date, but for everything else it was great.

  • Every restaurant has it's misses...
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 9/28/2012
    We found Timpano's on Magical Dining. Unfortunately, every part of our dining experience simply fell apart. From the moment the valet opened the car door to when we left, there were countless misses. The dining room is nice and comfortable with many cozy spots. The attire of the bartenders wasn't appropriate though. The staff (wait staff to managers) seemed frantic and unable to handle a full service. The wedge salads were very good (cut at an angle, dressing inside - great idea). The chicken parmesan (very good) and prime top sirloin (undercooked; then overcooked). Tartufo & Tiramisu were bland, lacking any spark of flavor. The valets kept going into the open kitchen. I wish we'd had the great experience other reviewers mention.

    Food was OK, service very good. Better choices in the area for the price (Roy's). Flatbread app was edible but nothing special. Loved the dipping sauce for the free bread. Garlic mashed potatoes with the entree were too mushy for my taste and had too much garlic. I think they may have been potato mashed garlic. Blue cheese wedge salad was excellent.

    Nothing too bad, but the new menu is disappointing to me. I enjoyed the prawn appetizer. The short ribs were a favorite. Both are gone from the new menu. Service was good as always. The music artist is always too loud. If the music is such that you cannot hear your table guests talk, the music is too loud.

    Timpano's gave us a delightful meal. We went because of the Magical dining and ordered off the regular menu, fantastic. The deconstructed bruschetta, or do it yourself was the beginning, then veal and a perfect dessert sampler. The chianti complimented everything. A new experience in stuffed olives, CAVIAR!! A great addition to a martini. Our waiter was Gary and he guided us through the menu and made our dining experience memorable.

    Timpano is always consistently terrific! I had steak, which was wonderful. My dinner guest had chicken and loved it as well. The best part of the meal is always the mussels. They are the best I've ever had!!!! The entertainment is such a treat and they were great!! They've become our go-to restaurant when we want music with dinner. Do yourself a favor and sit in the bar area. It's such a treat!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    My wife and I have been there on several occasions and have always had excellent service and food. So when my parents came to town we took them their for my Dad's birthday. If it wasn't for the excellent food this time it would have been a flop. The waiter (Cesar) was not a very personable waiter and was very quick about everything and wanting to leave the table. We had to ask him on several occassions just to fill out drinks. Also the noise level was way over the top. The time we have been there before it was a nice quiet evening for elegant dining. Not anymore. We should have gone to Chili's. Very loud atmosphere now. Plus a few people wearing shorts and flip flops. I thought there was a dress code. Not an elegant place to eat anymore.
