We grabbed lunch on a weekday. Had Italian Burger. Very good! Service was pretty slow from water refill to getting the check. We were seated outside. Maybe our server was splitting tables indoors and outdoors. In any event, there should be a better system to pay attention to customers. Maybe a zone system that mutiple servers can keep an eye...

It smelled strange and the meat had a darker color. We gave it back. Unbelievable how a restaurant can do this. Never again!!!

The polenta was the best part of the meal. I couldn't stop eating it's delicious sweet creaminess despite being stuffed. My main course was chicken marsala, which was very good. I arrived on a weeknight (while on a business trip), and so the restaurant was not packed. Had it been busier I can imagine I might have been uncomfortable due... More

Solid dining experience away from downtown and not in Ybor. Good menu and service. Jazz combo playing in the corner was a nice touch. Higher end of the price range but this is upscale. Had a good time and enjoyed the good food.

Great happy hour from 3-7 pm every night with drink and appetizer specials. Friendly staff. Tuna poke and Calamari Fritto Mistro is highly recommended. Live music every night except Sunday.

First time visit to Timpano's and found service was good as was the food. Went with party of 8 and had reservations (recommend). All appetizers including calamari and mussels/clams were good. Entrees were also good. Side dishes are ala carte but not exceptionally large amounts (2-3 people max/dish). Nice bar selection. Did find openess of seating area a little loud... More

We were shopping at Hyde Park and asked one of the saleswomen at the store where we were shopping as to someplace she could recommend for happy hour. She suggested Timpano saying it was her favorite restaurant in the area. We sat at the bar and ordered wine and 2 happy hour snacks. The wine was excellent and the pour... More

The food was very good. I recommend the clams and mussel appetizers Salads are good as well as the house specials. The bar scene is good scene for middle age couples. The only negative is that it is very loud and hard to have a conversation.

It was getting late and we didn't have dinner plans so we decided to try Timpano's. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality and great tasting food. It is a little on the expensive side but worth it. Definitely recommending giving it a go.

We have been here many times both by ourselves and with friends. It is usually busy and tables not always available. Have never had a bad meal here and the mussels are a specialty.
