“Great food”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

We found the food here to very good. I had the penne with fennel sausage and my wife had the short ribs with gnocchi. Both were excellent choices - and they had Barolo wine by the glass - which is a little hard to find. Location is a little hard to find - not real well marked from the street but don't give up on finding it.

“A local treasure”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

It's been awhile but some of the best meals I've ever had in this community were served at Timpone's--well prepared, flavorful, inventive and paired with a great wine gift. It needed a face lift the last time I was there but the food was superb.

“Quirky campus town restaurant”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

A bit pricey for most student's budget, but they do a good job w/ Italian cuisine. Frequented by faculty, some locals and students on the days they get paid.

“Best restaurant in Urbana-Champaign”
Reviewed December 27, 2011

The food is terrific, plus they'll modify any item on the menu for vegetarians (if possible). The presentation is great, staff outstanding, and the desserts are the best in town. Overall, the best restaurant in U-C.

Went to Timpone's for a business lunch and it was WONDERFUL. I had veggie panini with a salad. Colleague had fried oyster salad. Lovely meal and talented and friendly wait staff.
