My husband and I used to live this restaurant. But it is slated to be torn down soon. So get on over for one last visit. Progress?

The good quality of food, the ease of parking ... the good selection of wine makes this place a nice option for a dinner. The ambiance lighting is an it too bright for a tablecloth restaurant, taking down a bit the brightness would make it very unique.

Had what was probably my final meal at Timpano's tonight. After many a venerable meal here, this place is closing up shop to be replaced by "fast casual" restaurants. Farewell and so long to a Pike classic. Due to close shortly after Jan. 1st.

Timpanos has announced that it is closing in January 2017. That is sad, because this little lively piece of Italian conviviality has been a favorite of ours for many years, especially around the holidays. There is still a chance to visit for a Christmas party or maybe even New Years! Let's send the owner out with our appreciation! The new... More

For the price you pay for the steaks I would look somewhere else. As steaks and other main courses are ala carte, a $39 strip becomes over $60, and if wanting a salad add another $12. Side's were good for two people, three would be stretching it. Nice ambience and very good service, although we were there for an early... More

Just had lunch at Timpano and previously had dinner there. Food is quite good. Wonderful specials. The lunch has an innovative "3 pack"...you pick 3 different combos of protein, pasta, salad, soup or vegetables. You get smaller portions on a plate. for about $16. Located off the main drag in Rockville ( in a strip center)...plenty of parking. Our service... More

I had dinner with 3 colleagues at Timpano, and was not really impressed. The wine list, although on paper pretty good, turned out to be not what they had. The 2 wines that I selected they didn't have, so we ended up with a good wine, but not what I had hoped. The wine list should be current, if not,... More

Rarely crowded so it's very nice for a casual or business lunch. Portions are just the size and there's a dish for every taste. I often order pasta with meat sause and a small salad. Dinners are more crowded and the restaurant is noisy.

Had lunch here with friends, most everyone had entree salads. My salad was the spinach and oyster mushroom with onions, tomatoes and goat cheese. It would have been better if the mushrooms had not been breaded. To me the mushrooms lost their flavor that way. The tomato bisque was a good texture and served hot. If you have wanted to... More
