Trattoria Timone has established itself as one of the most exciting restaurants in the Oakville and Mississauga area. We are located at 2091 Winston Park Drive, directly beside the Cineplex Theatre. Trattoria Timone’s authentic Italian cuisine is attributed to the kitchen staff’s experience and passion in the culinary field, led directly by Michel Fronteddu, Head Chef for 28 years and Owner since 2002 . Chef Michel and his team of professionals base their success to making everything on site, while only using the freshest ingredients available. Hand -rolling gnocchi, churning gelato, and growing our own organic herbs, are only a few examples of the quality and dedication that sets Trattoria Timone apart from chain restaurants. Our menu has been extended to include a greater variety of regional Italian dishes, along with a wonderful selection of seafood, and oysters from the Rodney’s Oyster House.

I had lunch at your restaurant on March 19th with customers and the feedback was very positive on the overall experience (food, quality and speed of service, ambiance, value for money). We will return.

Limited veg menu yet flavourful food. Did not like the Manhattan cocktail though but the NZ sea bass was perfect. As was the warm sweet potato salad and the rosè pasta. Ambience was good. Would love visiting again

A wonderful selection on the menu...something for everyone. The service was prompt and the quality of food was amazing. No one walked out feeling dissatisfied or hungry. Our appetizer, delicious crab cakes, were served on individual plates with a small salad for each person. Very impressive. We will be returning very soon👍

Upon arrival and walked in, we waited a few minutes not knowing if we should wait to be seated or just walk in. No one was at the door to greet us. A girl (hostess)came from the back and didn’t say sorry for the wait or welcome. We said hi to her and and said we had a reservation she looked us up and took us to a table closer to the kitchen. (No problems there). After a few minutes our server came over and asked us if we wanted something to drink. He didn’t introduce him self, didnt make eye contact, didn’t try to get to know us on the smallest of levels. We asked for some water and asked about the wines. He brought the water and we asked if we could taste the house white wine, which was good. We ordered a half liter and our food. After the food came we noticed that the table was wobbly, we decided not to say anything because we didn’t want to move after we settled in. Normally after receiving our food someone would check back up with us to make sure everything was okay. We finished our meal and he got our plates and “we” asked about desert. Order some ice cream and something else can’t remember. We finished and the server asked if we were done and brought us the bill in under 1 minute. There was no connection being made. We really felt like we were not welcomed. We are young professionals that were well dressed and didn’t quite understand why we got this type of treatment. We were really excited to visit this place as we dine out frequently and restaurant was on our list of new places to try. Now it’s on our list of places never to visit again.

On a side note I shouldn’t have to look at boxes on top of a fridge while I have my dinner. Really disappointing experience.

Experience at Trattoria Timone was great. Food was awesome, I had the seafood risotto and my husband had the steak and they were both delicious. I didn't feel rush at all. The server was great. Food came out on the right time, not too close to each other. Though, maybe to some people it might be too long.

Always my special venue of choice for both lunch and dinner. Have gone there since they were originally on the Lakeshore Road, in Downtown Oakville. People/guests I take with me are keen to return with their friends/families. Food is consistent. Wait staff, without exception, are efficient, courteous and helpful. Linda, at the front reception desk is "always the same" ... accommodating and very welcoming.
The long-service, bartender is also another exceptional person.
I am impressed that the owners are often a part of the day-to-day business of preparation and serving!
One small frustration, I consistently wish 'someone' would check the spelling on the "daily menus" sheet, there are always errors!

A bit disappointed that the steak was not cooked as expected and while a new one was provided after, again the dining experience was diminished as the other guests had their food while one had to wait some times to get theirs; we expected something to be done price wise for an establishment like this, which was not where as some other competitors would have comped the one meal.

This place has been a gem (in two locations) for 30+ years. Food is spectacular, service excellent. It was jam-packed on Saturday so the noise level was higher than normal. Our server “Steve” has been there for decades and is consistently skilled in being a great waiter. Can’t wait to go back.

Instead of full meal we shared appetizers and one entre. Portions were perfect and they divided the food before they brought it to the table which too few restaurants bother to do. They have wonderfully experienced and mature wait staff who dress appropriately. Don’t want to sound like a prude but I really do get tired of restaurant staff who are falling out of their clothes or want to show me their butt crack. Always a nice dining experience and always dependable. Thank you!

I have enjoyed this resturant for years however something has changed. The last few visits have not been as outstanding as I have experienced.
The attention to detail is missing and when the night slows down they defiantley make you feel uncomfortable about still being there. We were seated at 7:50pm and by 9:30 while trying to enjoy desert another waiter(not ours) came to ask if we planned on ordering anthing else before he closed out.
It is starting to feel like a chain with less intrest on the customer experience . I will give it one more try.

It was a great experience at Trattoria Timone. Everything was absolutely amazing except the grilled salmon order which I think lacks marination because it was tasteless. Or some sauce could be served to enhance its taste.

Trattoria Timone is the best restaurant in my local area. The food is always great and so is the service. We have never been disappointed. This our first choice always. We only go somewhere else when we cannot get a table here. They are always willing to listen and will try to accommodate your requests if at all possible. So glad to have them around.

The restaurant is located within the busy Winston Park complex which can attract a sizable pre-movie crowd. We had an early 5:45 pm dinner reservation for a Friday night due to a lack of later availability. The staff was very attentive and pleasant. The building crowd provided lots of energy, but also an ample din within the restaurant. The antipasto platter ($16) as well as the plate of oysters (6 for $21) will present were well presented. The osso bucco came in a tomato sauce and seemed a little firm considering the usual stewed presentation of the meat. The beef tenderloin special was served medium rare as requested. However, the cut was a little gristly for a tenderloin cut. The butternut squash ravioli was very well received by my young adult daughter and very tasty. Overall, it was a pleasant experience, and worth the moderate price (dinner for three with bottle of wine, one dessert and tip $280) for an efficient and well served dinner.

Although the food was OUTSTANDING and the food prices were very reasonable, the liquor, especially the wine is over prices, the noise level is too loud, and the the seating choices (I say choices but you have NO say where you sit) are terrible. We were seated at a table directly across from the food service area with HIGH traffic, excessive heat from the kitchen, on the most uncomfortable wooden chairs at a table that barely fit us. When we asked to be moved, we were denied, we strongly voiced our dislike of the table but were still denied with the excuse no other table was available. This was not the case, several other tables (at least 4-5) we available or became available within 5 minutes and remained empty until we left. Would we go back, we MIGHT give it another shot (only because of the food) but not for a very long time.

Great food....good value.
Just make sure (when you reserve) that you specify that you don’t want the table at the entrance/exit of the kitchen.
The “back room” as the staff called it when we asked to be moved was actually very nice....despite the dragging of the chairs on the floor when reorganizing tables. Please PICK UP the chairs...it was like fingernails on a chalkboard. So, other than those 2 things, it was quite lovely.
