one of the BEST place to eat mussels! If you enjoy good mussels with a cocktail or two, this is the place. The mussels are pan skillet-roasted plain or garlic. Both selections are delicious...melt in your mouth... that you would want to order another pan, all for yourself! The HH price is reasonable and get a whole pan of mussels...served... More

Went there with co-workers, we were in town for 10 days so we had plenty of opportunities to try out local restaurants. We went there on a Saturday night and were promptly seated at a comfortable table. The atmosphere was nice, it is a charming restaurant with good Italian selections on the menu as well as their nightly special. We... More

Timpano has a really nice atmosphere, upscale decor, and a great wine selection. The food was good, and we enjoyed our meals. Great for date night or for a gathering of friends.

Had a late graduation dinner celebration here. The single waiter had to take care of 12 of us. Really felt for him. He was overwhelmed and I feel we should of had 2 waiters. The pre-set menu was soup, salad, entrée and dessert samplings. It was just okay as I expected a lot more from this restaurant. We were seated... More

We came here to celebrate Mother's Day. The staff were very nice. I was happy that they have a kids menu. We order steak and linguine with clams. Our daughter got a flatbread pizza. We told them that we are going to share the food, and they split a steak and pasta for us in the kitchen, which was nice.... More

We can always count of a delicious meal, whether it's the girls out for a night of Manhattans and an array of filling appetizers (notably the mussels, flatbread, bruschetta and meatballs) or a succulent, huge, juicy steak with the men in my family, Timpano's is always a winner. The wait staff is excellent and helpful with suggestions and the place... More

We tried this restaurant for Valentine’s Day and there was both a fixed menu and the ability to order from the regular menu. We ordered from the menu and the food was cooked perfectly. The steak (rare) was cooked perfectly and we have seen some good restaurants fail on a rare steak. The scallops which my wife ordered were perfectly... More

My husband got the Italian Burger which was tasty, but too big to pick up. He had to eat it with a fork and knife. The fries that came with it were good. My Tuscan flatbread was good (my husband liked mine better than his burger), but IMO it was a bit burnt in a couple of places. Service was... More

I wanted to give it another try. Our server was wonderful, but I left feeling that the value of the food and experience, once again, fell beneath the cost of $160 meal for the three of us.
