great place

Every time I come to the Tampa area I try and stop here. the food and service are very good and I am always delighted. The steaks are excellent and the meatballs and Bolognese is always great. You can spend lots of money or you can keep it simple - there are both offerings. The wine list is nice... read more

We came here on a recommendation and were very disappointed. Pros: love the live music. Cons: the drinks were only okay. I ordered the La Catrina and my bf ordered the cucumber blood orange cosmo. The Cosmo was good, the other was not horrible, but not great. I ordered a filet medium which was way undercooked, then the waitress took... More

A friend and I went to Timpano for Sunday brunch. We had made reservations, which was a good idea. Our server, Rudy, was attentive but not overly so! The food was delicious and came in appropriate intervals, not too fast or too slow. The restaurant was packed as it was the morning after Gasparilla, yet it did not feel comfortable.... More

From the time we entered the restaurant until our dessert this restaurant was a great experience. The host spent some time with us welcoming us making us familiar with the restaurant. The service was fantastic and the menu and wine list varied for all tastes and budgets. The manger arrived at our table as dessert was being served to make... More

If you want to take your someone special or a special group of friends or your business team to dinner, look no further. This place is rocks. Why? The intimate ambience, the exceptional food - try one the specials...the grouper is fantastic, excellent wine, good music, and top-notch service. Don't think twice. Make a reservation.

Mimosa and salmon/eggs benedict - a great brunch. We sat outside - great atmosphere and people-watching. The service was fabulous. Highly recommend.

Stopped in yesterday for lunch with my wife. Just wanted a quick quiet light lunch. Ordered the tuna poke appetizer as a main course. It was delicious and more than adequate. My wife had the deconstructed brochettes which she really enjoyed. Have never seen this appetizer before. Best of all the service was attentive and the restaurant was quiet. Have... More

Visiting on vacation we had a nice window table led there by a friendly maitre de.We had a nice waitress with knowledge of the menu and specials. I would say it was casual but some were dressed for obvious after dinner plans. The menu has something for every taste every appetite from beef to seafood and all in between

Timpano (previously Samba Room) is a good dinner and drinks place in heart of Old Hyde Park. Nice ambience with low lighting and patio dining as well. Only a bit annoying when singers or small bands play and occasionally fail to regulate volume properly. I've been to Timpano quite a few times and like it. Other than occasinal volume issue... More
