The Service is impeccable. The food was good. Too noisy though, I cannot blame the restaurant for that... really great experience.

Timpano never disappoints! Our family has so many great memories centered around dinner at Timpanos, we always try to visit when in town and love introducing Timpano's to friends who have never been.

Each course was better than the previous. The black-pan mussels, the Wagyu carpaccio, the osso bucho. All outstanding.

I used to go all the time when I lived closer, but I haven’t been in a while. We decided to go again as an anniversary dinner, and it was still very good. The muscles are as good as ever, and my steak was cooked perfectly. Overall, a very enjoyable evening

Disappointed in the veal piccata. Veal was tough and sauce had too much lemon-lip puckering too much!

Our evening dining experience at Timpano’s in Ft. Lauderdale was just average and we were expecting much more. Our server was not properly educated on the menu, unable to tell us where they source their meats (without checking with the chef) and unsure of call brands back of their bar. Food was good, but not better than average and the restaurant lacked the activity and vibe we expected for a Thursday night on Las Olas.

Service very good. Terribly shopworn interior. Great location, but guys, re do the interior! How long has it been...20 years. Food was better my last visit. Rigatoni with mushroom and shorttib had a salty soupy sauce that was off putting. Remember, 12 Tuscan Italian Restaurants in a 12 block stretch of Las Olas. No rush to go back.

Everything was ok, but not at the level you would expect for this price point. There was nothing wrong, just nothing exceptional. There are several restaurants within a block or two that I would choose over this one.

Was there for a business celebration, we had a bit of everything and the food was delicious. The service was the shining part. From the moment we arrived, at the bar, and seated each member of the staff took amazing care of us. Highly recommend. Suggestion would be a little more music as it was a bit too quiet.

I have been there many times in the past and was sorely disappointed. The mussels were very small with a small portion. The waiter didn’t really know the menu. With one dish, his “selling point” was how good the polenta was. Dish comes out without it. We asked him, he said he would go check. He comes back and says they changed the menu and it didn’t come with it any more and walks away. Later, he brought polenta apologizing for the mistake but by that time we were all almost finished eating so it didn’t get eaten. Of the 4 people in my party only one was satisfied. It was a business meeting and I picked the restaurant and was sort of embarrased.

Food and atmosphere were great but the service was awful from our waiter Arturo. He barely checked on us even when we sat with all of our menus closed and clearly waiting and kept trying to push wind on us when the entire table was drinking liquor

We are long-standing patrons, usually celebrate most occasions at either Timpano or Abe & Louie’s (same parent comp) The impeccable service and food always brings us back. This particular visit was well below standard, with service that was equal to that of Outback. We’ve been lucky for so many visits, guess it was inevitable to have this experience. Will be a while to go back, but when we do, we are hopeful for the service that is expected!

Made a late reservation, arrived on time and we were promptly seated. We were given a booth which I asked for and a birthday cake was given to our daughter after dinner, I consider Timpanos a first class operation.

The bartenders were excellent before dinner. The table service was good but my steak was not cooked properly. It was to be cooked Pittsburgh rare. It came out and you could tell it wasn’t based on the non charred surface. The waiter took it back and rather than redoing it the put it back under the broiler, this led to a over cooked steak that was dry inside. He never came back to check on it. I ended up cutting a $58.00 steak up for my dog. Good thing she’s worth it! If she was writing the review it would have gotten 5 stars.

We love Timpano's, but the petit filet was not grilled very well, and wasn't crispy on the outside, just soggy. Not sure why. It tasted good, just looked pale. The grilled mussels are excellent and service was great.
