What could have been a busy rushed evening was turned into a wonderfully accommodating relaxed experience with very attentive service and appropriately timed presentation of food and drinks,tuna saltimbocca and mussels being two favorites. With only being reopened a month it’s back to the top pick for casual dining!

Truly an excellent experience. The menu is interesting and the service is outstanding. A special shout out to the clams with linguini and the sublime creamed spinach. Several people stopped us when they saw us carrying a bag with our leftovers to ask how we liked the restaurant, and we were happy to give them a high recommendation. We look forward to returning!

The new design is beautiful and the atmosphere is electric! However the service was extremely slow and they did not accommodate for the long wait times for food. Furthermore, we felt that although the food was tasty and delicious, it was overpriced and not worth the amount we got. We ended up home after 10 pm and still needing to eat something else.

Tried 3 different cocktails and all were oddly bitter and came with a weird aftertaste. Definitely order wine to play it safe. Burrata was amazing and so was the bread plate (easy enough), however Mafaldine pasta was severely coated with salt and hard to eat because of it. Meatballs were great. The noise level was insanely loud so would recommend asking for a table on the patio if you want to hear what the people across from you is saying. I’ll give it another try in a year or so for dinner once they’ve settled in. Also we had a reservation but still had to wait a while to be seated which isn’t that big of a deal. 3/10.

The food and drink did not disappoint. The noise level and choice of music did not match the cuisine and felt more like a club than a restaurant/bar. It was disappointing to see that there doesn't appear to be space for live music. The overall feel of the space was UBER trendy and clearly trying to be like other places, again disappointing that it did not stay true to it's roots or an updated version of them. I will go back for the menu, but not frequently, and will plan the timing so as to not be there when the crowd becomes a club crowd (by the end of our dinner the crowd that was coming in was not there for a nice dinner but more of an evening of trolling).

We had a terrible food experience.

We visited timpano few times prior to the renovation - we know what the food should have been.

Our mussels were a salt bomb. See our photos. They were dried and shriveled up by the time it got to the table. We even asked the server if it was suppose to be like this.. and she said it was a mix of parm/salt - terrible! Almost inedible, no sauce on the bottom to even dip the bread. Instead burnt salt.

Our meatballs were over cooked / dry and the sauce was luke warm.

Clams with linguine was an overpowering flavor of just lemon. No clam juice flavor, linguine pasta was cut up into small pieces???? Never seen or heard of this - Olive Garden doesn’t even do that.

My mushroom papadelle did not have any truffle. Pasta was almost raw. Not al dente.

We paid almost $200 and left disappointed.
Bring back your original mussels, have a happy hour, re train your kitchen cooks. You can make a restaurant as beautiful as you want but the food is what brings people back. Won’t be back in a while.

Lot of bugs to work out. Love the buildout but way way overpriced since they’ve gone to an a la carte menu. Bar was overwhelmed in service of drinks to tables but that’s workable. Food eh especially for the price. Will be surprised if that menu can maintain repeat customers. I don’t see it. And please remove the Bambolino smokefest. Just a horrible idea for a dessert. And the wine list is still very challenging overall. Have never understood why that’s the case for Tavistock. The buildout is the draw so will be a good spot still for a cocktail. That trellis with fake plants over tables is going to be a dust magnet, may want to replace that while new.

I was so excited to take my boyfriend to Timpano for a date night! I had been following their IG and Facebook updates. We couldn’t wait to try the new menu items. As you walk into the restaurant the ambiance and decor is beautiful. It is very inviting and certainly a place for any occasion to be celebrated! The bar was packed, Outdoor seating full and the dining room was full by the time we finished our meals. The menu selection is certainly one of a kind and creative. My boyfriend got the smoked Old fashioned which he loved (ended up getting two they were so yummy) and I got a virgin Moscow mule. We started with two appetizers; the oysters and the stuffed portobello mushroom. Both delicious choices. Our kale Caesar salad before our meals was just ok; it was very salty and loaded with too much dressing but edible and served its purpose for some greens before our meals came. My boyfriend got the $85 “wagyu” filet. Having had many wagyu steaks while dining out this was just a big disappointed. It was comparable to a USDA Publix steak at best. We should have known it wouldn’t meet our expectations when reading it came with a mushroom Marsala sauce. No wagyu beef of any kind should need any type of sauce on it. We asked for the Marsala sauce on the side. The beef was just not worth the price and doesn’t deserve the label “Wagyu”. I ordered the Cape Canaveral Shrimp scampi dish thinking I would be getting a decadent pasta dish with large shrimp in a white wine and “sweet chili sauce” but instead I got a half plate full of cooked shrimp with the heads still attached that were steamed in a sweet chili sauce. I couldn’t even eat a whole Shrimp, told the server it was my mistake that my expectations were something different. I then chose the Cavatelli pasta dish which was just OK.
After having spent nearly $300 with tip I wish our food experience was better. Our server was good but we still walked away disappointed in the high expectations we had of the menu items.

Sad experience. “Italian” place and returned two pasta dishes, one had NO flavor at all and the other was cold and undercooked. Service was good but have to beg for bread and water. Manager (?) came to apologize and offered two drink complementary cards, didn’t took them since I have no desire of coming back.

Waited to be seated for 45 minutes. Reservation was at 8:30pm. We were offered drinks while we were waiting. Hostess didn't bring them until we had been finally seated for 30 minutes at the table. Waited 20 minutes before we got water and placed our orders. Food finally arrived at 10pm. Ceiling air conditioning unit dripped on me the entire dinner.

If you loved Timpano before, be prepared to fall in love all over again. The new ambiance, decor, and menu felt like an homage to all the best things about Timpano before with a modern refresh. The restaurant was lively at 6:30pm on a Thursday when my reservation was set. The hostesses were warm and welcoming and seated my boyfriend and I at an amazing table with a full view of the restaurant. Our server Christiana read my OpenTable reservation before greeting us and even made sure to point out some of the pescatarian dishes on the menu because it was in my profile. Even on a busy night, she still made us feel like we were getting VIP service. Christiana was attentive, knowledgeable, and genuinely cared that we had an amazing experience. I would absolutely ask for her if you are dining at Timpano. Finally, Sheri- the General Manager came over to wish my boyfriend a happy birthday and welcome me back to the restaurant. Our conversation with Sheri was exceptional and you could tell how much she appreciated our patronage. Timpano is in the most wonderful hands with Sheri at the helm.

As always, the food and wine were incredible. The mussels are still there and are a must order. We also got the shrimp mostro which were delicious, the cocktail sauce is so unique and so good. Lastly, the parm to table experience is not to be missed. Delicious.

Timpano Hyde Park is a Tampa institution and I couldn't be happier that its back and better than ever.
