Good pasta, tough chop

I dined at Timpanos with a large party. Service was excellent. Salads got raves, as did pasta dishes. Unlike most of the crowd I ordered a steak. For the price( in the high 30s) I expected a prime ,perfectly prepared piece of beef. Sadly, my steak was done as ordered, but incredibly tough. Having... read more

We came in here on January 1st and a place was virtually deserted, just a couple of tables were occupied. We were quickly seated and presented with menus. The place is expensive. I don't believe there were any dishes less than $25+, apart from appetizers. I got scallops which were very good, but I didn't care much for polenta. Steaks... More

Went looking for Saturday evening last minute reservation - found one at this bistro that we hadn't frequented in quite a few years. This is a very high priced restaurant which charges in the 20-40 dollar range for it's meat entrees, plus veggies and salads were ala carte. Trying not to break the bank, we both opted for a pasta...

As review indicates, food was average but good. Had a hard time choosing between 3 and 4 stars. Nice atmosphere and live music was a really nice touch when we were there. Also loved the "warming station" with complementary hot chocolate and apple cider on the way out on a winters nights. Reasonable dish prices for the most part, but... More

The mussel was the best. Good food, little pricy but worth it for a special occasion. Would definitely go back.

Great location on Rockville Pike.very large restaurant capable of seating you and your party with a large bar.unfortunately the food just isn't that good. My wife and I have been there now three or four times over the last five years. We just never had an experience worthy of the cost.I would probably give them one more try.

I came to Rockville on a small getaway just to be in a different atmosphere. I did what most of you would do (even though I'm in my own state) and looked for a list of steak houses in the area. The fact that I saw Italian next to a steak house immediately intrigued me. I set the reservation, and... More

This is a very 'nice' restaurant. Interior is great and seating is comfy. The menu is not lengthy, but selections are tasty and service is attentive. Prices are a little steep, but it is good to rob your piggy bank once in a while to give yourself a culinary treat and a pleasant night out.
