Diner Reviews
  • "We've never had a bad meal at Timpano. The food and service are consistently top notch. The environment is vibrant and high-energy. Tony and the band always play great music and they will honor any requests. Timpano is a fun place to be on a Saturday night!"

  • "Outstanding experience. The veal chop was exceptional. One of our favorite restaurants in TPA. Highly recommend."

  • "Our second visit to Timpano and, again, we were very happy with it. Not top-notch on the service this time, but there was enough backup service -- a couple of other staff who picked up quickly where our own waitperson wasn't totally on the ball. We had three starters and one mail course. The food was quality as well as the servings were generous. Meatball starter, very tasty. Iceberg lettuce starter, great, and they split it for us. Flatbread starter, yummy. And then seafood linguine. We declined dessert but they brought us a lovely little amuse bouche dessert with "happy anniversary" written on it... I'd put in the Open Table notes that it was our anniversary. That was a lovely touch. Very happy."

  • "The service was not up to par due to the fact that our waiter was training someone. They forgot a lot of things we ask for, that was important to a group of 6."

  • "We've been to this restaurant several times. The food is excellent, but not one of the best places to dine in Tampa. There are interesting choices on the menu, so not your run of the mill Italian-American restaurant. The service is always very good. On weekend evenings there is live entertainment, but it plays way too loud for the size of the restaurant, making it almost impossible to carry on a conversation. Overall, an above average dining experience."

  • "Timpanos has a great environment for a couple or small group. The food is always great, not the typical Italian food with all pasta and sauces. I had a flatbread for an appetizer, shared a chop salad with my husband, and had chicken piccata for dinner. The chicken piccata was a generous portion, but does not include pasta. My husband had the chicken parm with a side of broccolini, very good!"

  • "We made the reservation for Saturday brunch online. Upon arrival we were greeted immediately and seated at our requested table outside. The brunch menu was unique and the food was delicious. The service was excellent and atmosphere was perfect."

  • "Lunch last week consisted of a trio, choosing a meat, vegetable and starch; the server was very accommodating and I highly recommend for unusual taste sensations along with a great location for lunch. Service was fast as well, and attentive yet not disruptive."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "We came back due to the great 1st time visit. I would have to say the food again was exceptional. We shared the fried oysters which were supposed to come with a hot sauce and our server did not bring it until we finished them. I had the Trio Filet Portobello Spaghetti, which was great but ton of food. Wife had the Trio Salmon Eggplant Mash Potatoes, again great flavors and large portions."

  • "No salt and pepper on table; server served meal and disappeared; Risotto was undercooked; salad, crab cake appetizer and risotto, my entire meal came all at the same time. Since when is the salad and appetizer served at the same time??? Lovely outdoor spot for dining. What a shame the rest didn't come together."

  • "I go to Timpano's at least a couple of times a month, and I have never left disappointed. The food is always consistently delicious, and the service has always been excellent. It can get a bit loud in the restaurant, but as long as you don't mind the noise level, you'll love it!"

  • "This is my second time at the restaurant. The first time I went on a less busy night and we sat outside. The food was a delight, the service excellent. This time it was so crowded and noisy I could barely hear my spouse next to me. The food was great. The eggplant was delicious. The service got slow because of the crowd and the host taking us to our table was a bit rude. I suggest if you want a nice quiet and romantic dinner with your spouse, avoid Friday nights."

  • "We visit a number of upscale restaurants in the Bay area. I won't be eating the Veal there again, it was tasteless. I don't know about the rest of the food. We just thought we would try food there."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Had a res for 7pm. They showed us to our table outside. It was 50degrees and no live music could be heard out there. We declined. When we book a reservation it should say if your sitting outside. This is misleading and a waste of everyone's time."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The service was terrible. We ordered a round of drinks and we saw them sitting at the bar for over 20 minutes before our server brought them to us. Our server disappeared after we received our meals and a new server started taking care of us. We never saw our original server again and we were never informed on what happened to him. I was very embarrassed because I raved to a friend about this restaurant and it ended up being a poor experience for her."

  • "Fourth or Fifth Valentine's Day dinner there, but won't go back next year. A glass of wine each and with dinner totaled $200 after tip for just a good or average dinner. Overpriced and nothing special for this kind of money."

  • "This is the second time we've come to Timpano for Valentines day. Great atmosphere and the band was awesome! My only issue was that we were sat right next to the band and it was a little too loud at times. The Valentines special was pricey at $80 per person, but you can never go wrong with the regular menu."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The service and food were great, but the noise was way to loud. Prices steep."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Our server was outstanding!!! The ambiance was very "snooty" but our server made us feel quite at ease. The food was outstanding!!! Parking was difficult. Parked in a parking garage about 1/2 block down and had to go down 4 flights of stairs because the lot was full. It was raining and cold but the food made up for it!"
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "I had a reservation but was seated at a table in the bar and not in the restaurant portion (back)....I asked to be reseated but was told the restaurant was "sold out" for the night -- even though there were many many empty tables. Thankfully we left before the band started...had we stayed we could only have stared at each other. This is good food and a great location, but until they deal with the noise issues I will not return for dinner. It is too difficult to carry on a conversation. Oh, and one of my table mates was given the wrong bag of left-overs....go figure."

  • "My daughter was turning 21 and some of her co workers recommended Timpano's for her birthday dinner. I called the restaurant and spoke with the manager Jesse and the General Manager Miles and they really went out of their way to ensure that our evening would be special and memorable. Our party all enjoyed the food and the atmosphere and my daughter loved the special touches that they put on the evening. I would highly recommend Timpano's to anyone."

  • "I was between a 3 or 4 star for the food, only because the mussels were fabulous as always, and the soup of the day (cioppino) very goodt. But my chopped salad didn't make the grade for me. I miss their Cabrales Salad…….that used to be fabulous. But all in all, we love Timpanos."

  • "Swordfish was terrific, Veal Piccatta was slimy and was very bland. Dinner wait staff was very good...Young lady waiting on us in the lounge was NOT attentive. Your prices are too high for mediocre food and service. Not in a hurry to return or to recommend. As it was the 3 of us spent well over 400.00 for a evening at Timpanos. The Bar and wine selection was very good. The trio that played did a good job, although they could have been livelier. I suggest you bring in younger more vibrant talent."

  • "We were sat in the bar area (huge mistake). The server was at first attentive but then just disappeared. Ordered bottle of champagne server never brought the ice bucket for the bottle. We then ordered a flat bread app but 45 mins later it and the server never came (hence the reason for the 1 star for food). Manager came right away after we asked a different server for our check. Have been to Timpano many times this was the worst service I've had here. Lesson learned, never sit in the bar area for dinner."
