Timpano Italian Chophouse - Tampa
Great food great serviceWe went to celebrate a birthday and we are glad we did. Dinner was excellent. Our server was great- jovial and attentive. The live Sinatra style music was fun. and not so loud we couldn't speak to each other. It is a bit pricey but not at all pretentious. We really enjoyed the night.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time for dinner, not the lastWe had lunch at Timpano several years ago and recalled it as good but not outstanding. We shop, and eat at other restaurants in Hyde Park from time to time and decided to try Timpano for dinner. We were very glad we did! The sea scallop entree was excellent, as was the roasted salmon. Everything was prepared and presented well, and served hot. We had a great outside table and the service was excellent - not pushy, but informed and well-paced. We will definitely be back for dinner....and will likely give lunch another try after this experience.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favorite spotsOne of our favorite spots in South Tampa.

I'll go again!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMDisappointing Chicken MarsalaThe hosts/servers were thoughtful. I was impressed on the notes they took of our situation w/ my husband coming home from the military for our wedding anniversary, all the staff knew about us when we walked in and thanking him for his service, that meant so much. Our server also brought a piece of chocolate cake with strawberries stating happy anniversary which was an unexpected pleasant surprise. On a sad note, my husband ordered Chicken Marsala, it was a dry, thin, small piece of chicken & sauce not including a veggie or pasta, had to order that separately & not the best we've had considering a restaurant of this stature, but my blue oysters were delicious. I'd still recommend Timpano for it's beautiful setting, location, music & staff.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe arrived right on scheduleWe arrived right on schedule and were promptly seated. We shared a house salad for an appetizer. It was a very Mediterranean salad with a light vinaigrette dressing olives and blue cheese. The cocktails were excellent. My friend had the salmon and I the petite fillet. Both beautifully prepared and plated. The steak was ala carte so I also have the asperagus which were beautifully grilled.
I had been to the Timpano's in Ft Lauderdale and this was very similar.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was amazing,goodThe food was amazing,good job kitchen staff.

Can't wait to go back.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding SteakWe were visiting Tampa and we took our son and his girlfriend there on their recommendation. We were not disappointed. I had the filet with the bourbon peppercorn sauce and it was amazing. One of the best steaks I have had in months. The restaurant was a little noisy due to several large parties having a good time, but the service was great. Next time I will choose to sit outdoors. It will probably be quieter.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
