Timpano Italian Chophouse - Tampa Ratings and Reviews
most disappointing was the service. our waiter was rushed, and hardly let us get our orders out before he dashed off. we couldn't seem to hold his attention. then he brought the meals before we had finished our appetizers. we placed the reservation as a "birthday" celebration but we were not offered any way to celebrate this occasion.
The food and service was wonderful. Having an open floor concept the place is fairly loud with the bar full of people . Then a band started to play around the time our appetizers showed up. You couldn’t hear a person two seats away. A little more awareness from the staff could have controlled the volume better. Noise level was the only complaint from our party of six.
They have changed their menu… Most of the raw bar items are no longer available… Very few light items… We used to swing by and sit at the bar and do three rounds of tapas style appetizers… That is no longer a thing… The food is excellent but heavy and the changes are not necessarily for the better. I must say the waitstaff and bartenders are excellent and Timpanos had been a ritual for us for a long time but things change...
The restaurant was not crowded but our food took a long time to arrive. Once we received it, the inside of the Margarita sandwich was burned and had to cheese so I had to request some. The sandwich had no flavor and I felt I wasted my money. The clam chowder was good
We love this restaurant and eat dinner here regularly. On this occassion we went for a group Christmas lunch. Unfortunately, lunch at Timpano’s is definitely not as good as dinner. The food was cooked fine, but the lunch menu overall is very average, a huge step down from the dinner menu, which includes the spectacular pork chop and osso bucco. Service was great as usual, but because of the “meh” menu we won’t be back for lunch.
From the moment that you walk in the door and Frank welcomes you, you realize that this is not your everyday restaurant, The coattails are the best in Tampa, the Food from the pasta ,fish to the Ossco Bocco ; this is the best Italian Chop house in Tampa. I look forward to going back, time and time again.
First let me start by saying, I would recommend this restaurant, however, be prepared for a very loud atmosphere. That was my fault for not asking beforehand. I booked this for a friends get together and was disappointed that we could not all talk because of how loud it was in the restaurant. Second, everyone at my table received their food except me. The staff and management could not have been nicer about it. They realized the problem and rectified the situation immediately and were extremely apologetic about it. When the food came out, it wasn't what I expected and am hoping it wasn't because it was a "rushed dish". They comped my meal and one of my drinks which I didn't have to ask for. Again, they were extremely accommodating and apologetic about the situation. I would go back again, I don't think this is a pattern for them. This was my second time dining there and the first time had no problems.
Just normal lunch on a typical Saturday. Three of us in the party and one of us got the small filet. It took THREE attempts to cook it medium rare. THREE. The first time it was way over cooked. Second time way undercooked. Then third time it was perfect. Flavor was great. Delicious. But very confused how a restaurant like this could not figure out how to cook a steak. Server was very attentive and they did not charge us for the steak. Disappointment was on the cook but not the restaurant. Otherwise great experience. Can’t beat the location and sitting outside in Hyde park watching gold range rovers driving by.
Our reservation was for 7pm and we arrived a few minutes early and they were able to seat us in a very busy restaurant. The server was very good he answered questions about the menu that all four of us had. Our food arrived as ordered and we had a very enjoyable evening.
Went there for wife's birthday. Was there once before and it was really good. Kind of let down this time around. For main entre... I had chicken marsala, my wife had chicken picatta...neither tasted the way we had in mind. There were olives in both and that was unexpected....and unwanted. My marsala didn't appear to be cooked in any kind of marsala wine...and the picatta...no idea what that was trying to be. Definitely no yummy sounds coming from our table. We would have complained, but we had to get to a theatre for a show ... and just decided to let it be. Appetizer salad was good...though I asked for no tomatoes...and got tomatoes.
It was also very loud...the music was up way too high...made conversation difficult.
Pleasant server...he was polite and courteous.
Overall, disappointing...especially given it's Hyde Park cache. Definitely poor value for the money. Doubt we'll be back.
We always enjoy going to Timpano. First of all, it is within walking distance and it has great outdoor seating. The menu is varied, the food is good, and the wine list is very nice. One reason we continue to come back is the outstanding service we receive. Angela, the manager, always greets us and makes sure we are happy. On Friday night our server, David, was exceptional. In addition, they go out of their way to accommodate any special requests. For us, it's a favorite neighborhood place.
