Diner Reviews
  • "We always go there for the salt roasted mussels. They are outstanding and a must have."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "But food was good and wife has been twice so third time was also fulfilling."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "We dine at Timpanos at least twice a month, and the mussels are always on our list of things to order."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "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!"

  • "Really nice place. Food and environment was all excellent. Would definitely go back."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "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 "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "The osso bucco was fabulous....and huge! Butterscotch bread pudding awesome, too. "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Timpano has been one of my favorite restaurants since moving here nine years ago. The food was excellent, and our waitress was wonderfully attentive and served at an enjoyable leisurely pace. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Really good food, good live entertainment, and great service from friendly staff."

  • "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.... "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "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."

  • "service is declining and the other food is just so so."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "the service and other food has been decreasing in quality."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "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."

  • "Good, atmosphere, and wine is very good. Service was rather poor especially since there wasn't a lot of people there."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "It was a great experience for me and my husband. We do plan on returning in the future."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "I've been here a few times and I've never been disappointed! The staff is great, the food is outstanding and the ambiance is perfect for any occasion."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "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!"
