We chose this restaurant based on reviews found on Tripadvisor. Another plus was it was close to our hotel after a long day of driving. There was a bit of a mixup with our reservation not being relayed by the person that took it but they were able to seat us on a busy Wednesday evening. The staff was excellent... More

I hadn't been here in many years. It used to just be a pizza place years ago. It is a very large full blown restaurant now. It is in the old space that used to be Thunderbird's (a great freshman and sophomore bar at U of I years ago) Great Menu Delicious Food Great Wine List Great Service (our waiter... More

Timpone's has been our favorite Italian restaurant in Urbana-Champaign for the past two decades. Its food is very comparable to the food we find in Italy. It is also my favorite choice for business lunch with visitors on campus. I would highly recommend Frito Misto, Sea Food Risoto, or Hanger Steak. Their coffee is consistently good. Their bread is one... More

We dined at Timpone's just before closing on a Saturday night, and had a delightful meal. We both had seafood and pasta, and very favorably impressed. One small drawback--the tables are close enough together that we heard more of the conversation at the table next to us than we really wanted.

We had an anniversary dinner here tonight and were exceptionally pleased with the food. The service was good, although the young man who took our order was not as informed as I would have expected. Several people served our food and took care of us, which made for very good service. There are innovative specials each evening and my husband... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the area! Amazing food! I had planned on having the beef tenderloin when I first arrived, but was slightly disappointed to find out they had sold out. I did not stay disappointed for long! I ordered the mushroom pizza that was a special for the evening. I can't even describe how flavorful... More

It is rare that I go back to the same restaurant for dinner after having had lunch there on the same day- but it happened today. Amazing food, nice waiting staff and nice atmosphere. Best tomato bisque I have ever had! Don't miss out on this great place! Truely Italian with a twist.

Timpone's has been a favorite restaurant of mine for 25 years. The menu is interesting and always changing; the food is always superb; and the service is excellent. The Italian menu choices range from an excellent thin crust pizza to succulent fish dishes and pastas with divine sauces. On this visit, I chose risotto cakes for an appetizer, which I... More

I've been eating at Timpones for about 25 years. This is one of the best choices for fine dining in C-U. The food is always excellent. The menu is constantly changing but they always have nice fish, meat and pasta choices. Many people love their pizza. The long-time favorite appetizer is Frito Misto (usually shrimp, calamari, scallops) with a garlic... More
