Excellent lunch!

My husband and I gave this place a try after seeing a show in Tampa. It was wonderful! Timpano has unique Italian-inspired dishes (including a Tuscan egg appetizer that was excellent). The beef carpaccio is delicious as well.

Last weekend when my mother was in town a girlfriend and I decided to take her to brunch at Timpano. I was expecting upscale dishes prepared perfectly. Well the menu looked up scale but the preparation was more than a disappointment. We started out with the mussels which I will say came topped with sea salt on the shells that... More

We had gift cards that the restaurant gave out around Christmas time. They gave these $20.00 gift cards to everyone at the table one day while we were there. We tried to use them today, we could only use one per table. When I went to use ours they used $5.00 of mine on the bill of someone else at... More

Went with friends for the first time. The patio is THE spot to eat. The food and service were unremarkable. Except the homemade fries are delectable. The patio with beautiful weather made all the other not so important.

After so many disappointing meals in Tampa, what a pleasure to finally come across a restaurant serving the sort of dishes you would be happy to see in a good restaurant in New York, London or dare I say it even Paris. Of course, there is a price to pay for such quality - and it's a steep one when... More

Overpriced, terrible service. This is one o the worst Italian Restaurants I have ever eaten in. The food was awful unless you like pasta served broken and in a sticky mound. Unmelted cheese on chicken Parm. burnt mussels, undercooked rice, very bad service, and overall just high overpriced food. Will never go there again. cheese

This is a consistently delicious stop for us. We've been there countless times and always a great meal. If you like mussels - the world's best are at Timpanos! They're roasted with only sea salt & butter in a cast iron pan. Then they're served on the cast iron cover evevated on your table. The results are hearty, robust, pure... More

Weekend brunch at Timpano, Hyde Park, in Tampa is always a nice experience for us. The menu is not very extensive but every item we tried has been wonderful. Great service - prompt, friendly and professional.

While visiting family in the Tampa area we thought it was be nice to plan a dinner here... Well, after waiting 10 mins for our waiter to visit our table we were finally able to order drinks. By the time we were able to order dinner, it was so loud we could not hear each other across the table. For... More

I am very disappointed the way we were treated today. I have never been treated so rude! Your manager and staff were not accommodating specially to us 3 women with kids. Kids were behaving as kids but we were rudely thrown out and your manager made unnecessary comments as if he was telling us that we were not welcome at... More
