    First I want to give restaurant good rating, but on the second thought decide that with menu prices Timo should serve better ingredients and bigger portion. Caesar salad you shouldn't create again. Restaurant must buy good anchovies and make it right.2 scallops with tea spoon of polenta for $18 too expensive.Grill branzino is very good, will highly recommend.

    My family has been dining at Timo's for years. The food is always great with interesting changing menus. However, on our last three visits there have been notable lapses in service regarding the timing of course delivery. Without fail, every course delivered three out of four dishes leaving one person with no food for lengthy periods of time. This happened again this past Saturday night with the restaurant not even half full. One appetizer was late, one main course, a side dish, and finally a dessert. The dessert delay was extremely frustrating. One person ordered the baked Alaska. 35 min later it arrived without another, non-baked Alaska dessert which came 10 minutes later, all marring what was otherwise a pleasant meal.

    Service was excellent and the food was delicious. The Italian Ceviche was tasty. Most notably the scallops, which I wish the dish had more of, was perfect. The Black & White pizza was thin, crisp and not overpowering with the truffle taste. I called ahead to say we were celebrating an occasion and they placed us in a comfortable and romantic semicircular table. The wife loved their chocolate souffle dessert. She said the banana ice cream was delicious and all flavors complemented each other. Complimentary valet is also a plus!

    We hadn't been to Timo for a couple of years but have to say it was as good if not better than we remembered. The fish - I had the Branzino over asparagus, my wife had the yellow tail snapper over eggplant - both were superb! We don't normally have desert but decided to splurge with the macadamia brittle and Carmel ice cream - it was devoured and worth every single calorie! Just a wonderful dining experience.

    I have always considered this place a nice restaurant and I have always enjoyed it. However, this time I decided to go for the Gnocci , and that was a big mistake. It was really bad, plus like a mixed taste of seafood and chicken soup, like they had the pasta in a soup bowl before serving. It was so bad that I had to ask the waiter to take it and I lost my appetite after that. I hope they pay attention to this option in the menu and either take it out or make it better.

    Every year when I'm in the Hollywood area I plan to eat at Timo because the food is excellent and the prices are moderate. I've never been disappointed in the food. The noise level can get a bit higher than I'd like when the restaurant is full (which is usually is), but it's within an acceptable level. Service is always good, too.

    We went to Timo (two nights in a row) because we knew our Toronto friends would love it just as much as our other friends did the night before!! My husband was a good sport ! In fact it was another great meal and it will probably be our (not)last one this season as we go home in a few days.Our waiter was terrific.We had martinis,a cosmo and long Island iced tea to start.We followed with red and white salad appetizers,and cod and tuna for mains,We even shared a gelato dessert and ended with Caffe lattes.The atmosphere was lively and our friends said they will be back again too !

    During the Winter season the restaurant is over crowded and the staff cannot keep up. We had to ask several times for water. The bread never came. the pizza dishes never came. My wife's food was coldish and the Waiter brought the wrong bottle of wine. While my beet risotto was great, we do not recommend the pizza. Even with a reservation, we still had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. Finally, I find it abusing that the restaurant automatically adds 18% to the bill as a tip to the waiter, whom is expecting an additional tip even though the service did not even warrant an 18% tip.

We started with appetizers of red and white salad and crispy oyster salad,,,,,yummy.Three of us had fish,the foccaccia crusted cod was amazing,and one friend who is a pizza lover, ordered the large ricotta cheese crispy crust pizza.He was in heaven ! We enjoyed a nice Italian red wine with our meal and finished with tiramisu,and four scoops of gelato !Caffe lattes followed and we bid our good byes with big smiles after a great evening....

    We saw a nice writeup for Timo and decided to give it a try, as the restaurant was a short walk from our hotel. While the restaurant is in a small commercial strip, the decor inside was very well done. A nice brick oven in the back gives the place a cozy feel. Based on the crowd we suspect this restaurant is popular with the locals. As it was fairly late for us, we decided to share a few small plates, and wound up selecting several recommendations from our very friendly and personable waitress Lisa. Everything we tried was excellent. Definitely a nice alternative in Sunny Isles - we will be back!

    We didn't know this restaurant until now. We were staying in a hotel close to Sunny Isles and we made a research online and decided to know the place. Great surprise. Food was very tasty and well prepared. Deserts were amazing! Fair prices. The only complain is about wine list, just few options for half bottles. My husband was driving so I wouldn't be able to drink a whole bottle so I had to choose a half bottle from a very limited list.

    They recognize you when you arrive and are always there to make sure you are enjoying the Timo experience. Led by Tim and Gary, the expert staff never stops looking for ways to make your evening an enjoyable one. This night ,I marveled at the Chicken soup with dumplings [ better than Grandma's ],followed up with one of their extraordinary crispy thin pizza's with prosciutto. My daughter enjoyed her skirt steak prepared just right with russet fries on the side. The Red Snapper was another good choice for my BW. Meet your friends at Timo's as I did with two business associates dining there that night as well. On the way out ,it's always nice seeing you again with a hug to my BW.

    Timo has been absolutely fabulous for the past two years...the food is tasty and beautifully presented,We have had the same good waiter quite often.The bus boy was new and I'm sure will improve as time goes on.We appreciated having a booth as we were having a quiet dinner with our son who had just flown in from Colorado.We decided on chilled white Sauvignon Blanc(Kim Crawford) and a bottle of sparkling and still water to quench our thirst.We nibbled on delicious flatbreads and decided to on tri-color salad appetizers,Our mains were seared tuna,foccacia crusted cod,and snapper,all mouthwatering and exquisitely plated.We still managed to make room for 4 flavours of gelato and fresh mint tea to end our wonderful supper.Bravo Timo !
