  • "This is my third visit to Timpano's when I have visited Tampa, Fl I highly recommend the establishment for its food which is outstanding. The servers have all been excellent and I have no real complaints. The restaurant I visited was in the Historic Hyde Park neighborhood. Loved it."

  • "Loved the bruschetta and meatball appetizers ! Husband and friend's steak was cooked a little too much and they really took care of us to compensate ."

  • "Timpano used to be sooooo much better. Everything was just "ok" and for the prices I expect a lot more than ok."

  • "We were looking for good food with a lively atmosphere. We got both PLUS great service. The mussels are amazing as was the veal piccata. I had a filet and it was better than Charleys or Ruths Chris. The bar waitress was about the nicest person on earth! The Host said he had our table but wanted us to have a better one and could we wait 5 min? Awesome. We will be back"

  • "Mg husband & I dined at Timpano for the first time and were pleasantly surprised at the quality and variety of the menu. From the tuna appetizer to the seafood entry, everything we ordered came out promptly and was incredibly tasty. Our service was excellent. Lively ambiance. We will for sure return."

  • "Enjoyed a wonderful meal at Timpano's over the weekend!! I would recommend it for a date night atmosphere!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Used to be my favorite location and not sure how or why the food and service quality has diminished. Calamari was overly fried and the Osso Bucco risotto was undercooked. The waiter was hard to get a hold of and several request went through other waiters. I won't be going back anytime soon unfortunately as I adore the jazz."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "The food was very good, the portions were perfect size. It is a little noisy. Biggest thing was that it is a busy place and I made a reservation then waited 15 for a table, and was then seated outside or have to wait longer for a table. What is the point of a reservation if you have to wait for a table then not get one and be seated outside. This is a perfect example of a good place that knows its good and treats people badly."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Once again we had a wonderful experience. Great table ready when we arrived, crafted cocktails were outstanding. Service was just right, not overdone as we were enjoying catching up with dear friends. Beef Tartar was perfect as well as other apps. Veal was very good and my Scallops were seared perfectly. Music was wonderful and added to a very nice evening out ... Will return again soon!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The food is good but you can't talk. We had a party of eight and you could not hear or talk to the person who is next to you. Better places to have a dining experience including socialization."

  • "We always go there for the salt roasted mussels. They are outstanding and a must have."

  • "Even though the noise level can be overbearing, the food and service are always outstanding. Even down to Paul, the valet, who provides exceptional service every time. We love Timpano!"

  • "My friend and I enjoyed our first visit to T's. The waitress was very attentive and pleasant. We were not rushing and she didn't hurry us. Food choices were very varied for lunch and we enjoyed our choices, they were tasty, fresh and nice size. The venue is very neat and smart, quieter than some other locations which are smaller inside. It has two walls facing onto the street (on a corner) and that made the interior more pleasant and light to our thinking. I thought the decor quite classy."

  • "This restaurant never fails to please and is such a treat to visit. We normally go after 1 for a late lunch and it is very relaxing."

  • "Our third time and each experience has been great. Food is great, service is good, prices are moderate. One of our go-to places for a reliably great dinner."

  • "They served an ala carte BLT salad for $12 in which the bacon strips were cooked only on one side Service not up to par as well "

  • "The osso bucco was fabulous....and huge! Butterscotch bread pudding awesome, too. "

  • "Must have been a bad night- Mother's Day. Service was very slow. Server very nice but too many tables to cover. Kitchen botched order. Other food over Cooked and not hot when served. Noise level requires ear plugs. However, staff was apologetic, very polite and gave us one free dinner and a credit on appetizers. Was very good on previous occasions. It was so late, we had to decline offer of free dessert."

  • "At 6:30 on a Saturday night, and they had NO bottles of non-sparkling water ??? That was terrible for a "nice" restaurant !! Food was OK, not great..... Not an exciting visit for my family !! Who loves good restaurants --- BERN'S, Capital Grill, Morton's.... "

  • "wW sat at the table for 15 min before anyone attended , no greeting, and messed up appetizer orders. It's so loud in there that you have to scream at the person sitting next to you in order to converse. Sloppy sloppy sloppy service. "
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Our guest said his filet mignon was perfectly cooked and probably the highlight of our dining experience. I ordered the clams and linguine with sauce, it was dry as a bone, rubbery and inedible with no sauce. I asked the waitress for some melted butter to put over the pasta just so I could eat it which she brought, then charged three dollars for it. What a waste of calories and a dinner for me. My husband ordered the osso bucco with the Risotto he said it was okay although the risotto was undercooked and tasteless. There are way too many good restaurants in Tampa to have to be underwhelmed and overcharged for a below average dining experience. We have been here before several times and it was good for lunch"

  • "Our Waiter did a nice job. We don't mind spending for our meal but at your prices we expect to leave the restaurant raiving about the tasty meal. Sorry, I cannot recommend your restaurant."

  • "Love the oysters and smoking skillet mussels, our favorites. Cocktails are excellent and service is very good. Just wish it weren't quite so loud. Makes conversation difficult."

  • "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."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "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!"
