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.

My husband and I heard about the Jazz Bar at Timpano's. We enjoyed one of the best martinis that we have ever had while listening to a drummer and pianist. They primarily played Frank Sinatra pieces and I now know why....Awesome singer, sounds so very much like Frank Sinatra and that we before the martini.

My party of 4 had an enjoyable dinner at Timpano in Hyde Park last weekend. We ordered several different entrees including seafood and veal dishes. All were well prepared with generous portions. Two of us had wine with our meal and one appetizer, which was a caesar salad. The service was excellent, not rushed, although the restuarant was fairly empty... More

Our family was out to celebrate our fathers 91st birthday. However the restaurant that we were going to go to had a 3 hour wait. So we ended up at Timpano and what a wonderful surprise that was. From the appetizers to the desert the food was spectacular. And they treated my father so kindly for his birthday. The wait... More

Timpano is our "go to" spot for a great bar, excellent food and live music! The bartenders know what we want and prepare great drinks. Nickie's Old Fashioned can't be beat. The bar bites are a super value and tasty. The raw bar is excellent! The dinner menu has something for everyone.

I have eaten here so many times and have never been disappointed. Excellent martinis and wine, great service, wonderful raw bar, and great selection to choose from. I only wish they still had the cheesecake lollipops. What a treat they were! One of my family's "go to" places for special occasions.

Very good food, however, service was rather slow on a Saturday night. As we did not have reservations, the wait was going to be very long; so, we opted to eat at the bar. Also, rather noisy environment. We would gladly go back during the week or with reservations.

Very busy place, which is good because there is construction all around them. I know it was just two of us and most tables are saved for 4 or more people but our rable for two was a little awkward. We were in a corner, not sure if this table is always there are if they added it because they... More
