We dined at Timpano while on vacation in Fort Lauderdale. The service was great. The mussels were some of the best we ever had. Our entrees were good as well - beef short ribs and lobster ravioli. I would go back.

Waiter. Mark provided top notch service and made us so comfortable, GM Joe was readily available to greet you and check in to ensure all of our needs were met. With so many restaurants on las olas to chose from, this one is a standout

Our entrees were good linguine & clams...and veal picatta and fairly priced. My wife's martini cost 15-dollars,...but it was large. We ordered a shrimp cocktail appetizer but it never arrived. They apologized.

My boyfriend and I visit Timpano Chophouse often and we are always satisfied with the meal, the service, and the atmosphere. The food is interesting and delicious and we love the decor and atmosphere inside the restaurant. It is one of our "go to" places in Ft. Lauderdale and we recommend it to all our friends and relatives.

The waiter was not really like a waiter more like a busboy.
The plates for the bread were all dirty under neath.
It was discussing ,.
My shrimp pasta was very ordinary, the linguine were all sticky and very poor presentation, and cold.
The short ribs were ok.
The sitting outside was nice , but we were so discussed that we left right away after finishing our last bite and paying our bill.
The first time we went there everything was good , the waiter was nice and helpful.
We wanted to repeat the experience but it was a big zero.
I didn’t t want to complain on the spot because the waiter didn’t t seen very normal and I didn’t t want him to get into trouble.
But because you asked me , I had to tell you.

Met our family for dinner. Timpano never disappoints. Been going here for years. Hubby loves the mussels.
I love their Bolognase sauce, Osso Bucco, lamb chops... paired with a fabulous Chianti 🍷

Great atmosphere and warm, welcoming staff. There were two birthday celebrations and the entire dining room chimed in with cheer 🥂

We’ll be back! Thanks for a lovely evening.

This was our first trip to Timpanos in several years. We met some friends there and dined in the main dining room. Typically we dine in the bar area. The dining room was wonderful. Very nice ambience. The food was very good. I had the salmon over spinach & artichokes, it was delicious. My husband had chicken piccata and the portion was very large. We took it home. The other couple both had meals that looked great and both of them cleaned up their plates. Must have been good! We will definitely be back.

Food was very good. Service left a LOT to be desired. Took over 30 minutes to get our drink orders, and another 20 to actually get the drinks. Staff were not friendly at all. Food was actually quite good and the live music made for a good ambiance.

Went there for the first time on Saturday night for our Valentine's dinner. The food was amazing. My Valentine's steak was cooked perfectly and the Brussel sprouts were fantastic. I had the Shrimp fra Diavlo which was very good as well. Our server Jared was outstanding. He was on top of everything. He kept our wine and water full the entire meal. We will definitely be back soon!

For a Valentine’s dinner, we were excited. Extremely disappointed. Sent our appetizer back. Cold in the middle. Brought plates to our table and set them down on the table. They weren’t ours...proceeded to take them to another table...gross!! The mashed potato had the consistency of boxed flakes. The whole experience was not good. And our server was inattentive and was not present most of the time. We will not be going back. Thank goodness I loved the person I was with. We had fun just laughing at the whole experience!!

Our "waitress" was extremely inattentive, the food under seasoned , the hostess was glib and unfriendly. Overall a very unsatisfying experience. I would like to say I've not experienced this before but it would be a lie. This restaurant is walking distance from our home and at one time we enjoyed their steak and seafood but over the past couple of years the food and service have been going down hill. I am afraid we will be removing it from our neighborhood rotation....very disappointing.
