Very flavorful however you get a small portion for a big price. None of my special request was met. If I saw our server three times that was a lot. Place wasn’t busy. 1st and last for me

Once again Timpano’s didn’t disappoint. We got there a few minutes early but we’re seated promptly. Our server was good but what always stands out is the consistency of the menu. The branzino was delicious and was presented well. The Osco Buco was very tender and flavorful. We will be back!

Food and service was great, our waitress was very attentive. We had dinner reservations, but we’re seated in the bar area, at a high top, which was way too loud. My husband and I couldn’t even have a conversation without shouting. A booth or table away from the bar might have been better.

Decent food that is super over priced. Also we ordered a $85 bottle of wine that was a 2015. He brought a 2017 and said it was subject to change and still the same price. Not very happy about that or the wine list in general. The pastas were bland. Salmon and Wagyu were good though

My mom was visiting from Orlando, so I wanted to try a new place. I’ve heard good things about Timpanos, and I would say overall I did enjoy the experience and would return. A few things though to note.

It was our first time visiting and they asked upon our arrival and said welcome but usually at high-end places I’ve been before they offer up something complimentary as a thank you for trying us out.

Also, my entree the sea scallops and risotto was on the bland side. I love risotto and have to order it when it’s on any menu and there’s was lacking by a large scale and the portion was very small.

The wedge was amazing and so were the cocktails but our waiter never asked if we wanted another drink. He came by the table a couple of times but overall was a bit stiff.

The dessert was amazing and highly recommend the cookie skillet to share!

I just was hoping for a bit more in terms of service and quality.

A friend recommended Timpano’s to us and we are so glad she did. The chicken parmigiana, pear fiocchi and short ribs were outstanding. Along with the food, the three piece musical ensemble; the lovely, bow-tied greeter; and the attentive server all made the evening memorable and had us all wanting to return..

The room is very loud. We had never been there before and were seated in front of the jazz musicians who were on break when we were seated. When they came off break we had to yell at each other to be able to communicate . Had we known this we would have asked for another table. This is just an observation and not a complaint.
