Timpano Italian Chophouse - Rockville
Classic Italian menu and niceClassic Italian menu and nice atmosphere. Prices are a bit high but worth it for a special occasion.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFilet was excellent as wasFilet was excellent as was the sirloin steak. All items are separate - loved the potato wedges and creamy polenta. Would like more vegetable choices. Caesar salad was just ok. Expected more meat choices, but found the menu varied in other ways. Service was excellent for first half hour, when restaurant filled up however, had to flag our server down a couple times. Wine choices were good, beer only so-so and no draught beer. Nice music started about 8:00.
Lots of families with kids which I found surprising in the more "adult" environment. Our Friday night experience with only one drink each ran about $140. Will return for lunch and try their pasta dishes.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNot in a hurryHave been to Timpanos many times over the years. Food has always been very good. Steamed Mussels the best! The type of crowd /age range has changed from year to year. Usually have a Frank Sinatra type band which is a nice addition to the ambience.
Only negative was the time waiting for our food was considerably longer than desired. There were several large parties 50-60 that held up the food for the rest.....6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMTimpanos Is RejuvenatedIn the past, this restaurant had music so loud, it was extremely difficult to hold a conversation at the table. Now, there seems to be a change of management. The wait staff is knowledgeable and attentive, the food is delicious, and the noise is gone.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent valueNice setting, great price on trio selections for lunch, good portion sizes, tasty food, wonderful service...5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe got a great cook this night.We got a great cook this night. The steaks were done just right. The service was attentive and the waiter took time to answer some questions on how the blackened mussels were done and about the 2nd floor (partys and banquets). On this Saturday night a jazz combo started playing about 7 pm.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely CelebrationThis is my wife's favorite place to dine, and it a always adds to a special evening -- this time her birthday!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, no weekend bandWe have brought people here for special occasions, an 80th birthday, after our daughter's wedding the next day with the french relatives and then this event. The food is delicious....they get their beef and cure it and make their cuts themselves. Something seems to have changed, in the past Friday and Saturday had live music...fun place by the bar with couches, that wasn't happening. There was no Frank Sinatra music like in the past when no band is available. We were there from740-10 pm. Food is always delicious!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMPaper on the tablecloths? Really?We were hesitant to go here after reading some negative reviews online, but the food was good and my wife enjoyed the live music (although some may find it quite loud).
The only thing I did not like was eating on a paper sheet covering the table cloth (which you may not be able to see in pictures). After paying $30 for a single entree and a three digits total for two, I'd like to enjoy my dinner on a table cloth.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had dinner reservationsWe had dinner reservations and were greeted with smiles and enthusiasm. The food was great and our server was very attentive. This was a very wonderful dinning experience.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMMarvelous MusselsI can't say enough good things about the unbelievable roasted mussels. They are outstanding -- roasted to perfection and seasoned just right. They are served in a sizzling cast iron roasting pan set into a clever metal serving gizmo with a handy bowl underneath to discard the empty shells. A delicious arugala and watercress salad was the perfect accompaniment. And speaking of accompaniments, the lounge band that was there on the night we visited (we heard they're there Mon-Wed nights from 6:30 or 7 on) was a treat. The female vocalist has a gorgeous voice and a great repertoire of just right music! This was our first visit to Timpano and we look forward to many happy returns!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful restaurant, withBeautiful restaurant, with a romantic feel.

We have been there on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place!We continue to love Timpano Chophouse because it never disappoints. The service was impeccable and I recommend asking for John. Everyone enjoyed the flatbread appetizer and ciabatta rolls so much that it was tough not to fill up before our entrees arrived. Everyone in our party of 5 ordered a different dish, which was nice b/c everyone enjoyed their meal. I had one of the best spinach side dishes ever and my bone-in rib eye steak was cooked to a perfect medium rare. So delicious! If you're OK with crowded, lively dining rooms and live jazzy music, you'll enjoy your experience at Timpano!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA preferred location for lunchA preferred location for lunch when in the Rockville area.
