Great time!

My wife & I went out with friends to get away from the Hotel we were at for Business. Timpano's was a prefect getaway for us. Food was just fantastic. The wine was good and our server Jeffrey was great! we were a party of 8 and there were about 24 others from our hotel doing the same thing and... read more

Went to this restaurant before we went to Cinebistro for a little app. Service was excellent! Decided to go back for coffee after the movie and it was nowhere near the earlier experience. Waitress never brought cream for the coffee and after 15 minutes my husband went to get some. Waitress walked by 2 more times without it even dawning... More

After living in Orlando for years, I came to expect a lot from Timpano, the Tampa location simply does not live up to the standard set by the Orlando location. The space is crowded, the service impersonal. and the restaurant is tight tight tight. I would take a business associate there in the daytime, but would not go there in... More

I had clients in town and oysters were requested. We went to Timpano and I am told the oysters were really good but I am writing this review because the service was fabulous. I could not have asked for better and I can't think how it could be improved upon. The servers were wonderful but special thanks to Jesse Dippre... More

We stopped in the lovely Hyde Park area of Tampa to do a little shopping yesterday. What luck to stop in Timpano's for an outdoor lunch. The chopped salad was perfect for splitting and it was excellent. We took a chance on a Veal Short-Rib Flat Bread Pizza with caramelized onions. We loved it and the flavors melded together beautifully.... More

In Tampa for some spring training games and Timpani was recommended. Glad we went. Even though it was a bit noisy at our booth near the bar (read happy hour), the service and food were worth it. We had a very personable and knowledgeable waitress transplanted from our area. The food was well prepared and delicious, 5 of us had... More

I eat at Timpano every chance I get. The food and atmosphere are awesome. Very upscale. I particularly like the raw menu and the beef carpacio is the best I've had in Tampa. I could eat it every night! They also have a live jazz band on most night. That being said, the last time I was there, I brought... More

I love this place for brunch and happy hour! The flatbread pizzas and salads are terrific. Roasted mussels are one of the specialties. I love the Tuscan Egg. A soft-boiled egg in a crust with a yummy tomato sauce. There is live music some evenings and the bar staff loves to impress with their well-crafted Martinis. Great place to stop... More

It was the place for my husband's i I first date, and it was great! It's been 5 years and we come back every time to celebrate something or just stop by for a drink/appetizer before movies or while shopping. Located in historic Hyde Park area this restaurant has GREAT Menu and very friendly staff. Been there lots of times... More

I went to this restaurant on a Monday so it was a little slow. I ordered the Tuna Poke and the Ahi Tuna. The Ahi Tuna was good. The Tuna Poke was okay and the service was just okay. Seem like you are kind of paying for the location more than the service or food.
