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

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
