Only problem is the TIP. They should not put tip on the bill. TIP is something that the client has the right to choose. And 20% is too high.

Very good food in a neighborhood italian restaurant with a loyal following in a strip mall. Enjoyed our meal and the prices were reasonable. Only substantive negative was that it was very noisy so difficult to hear my partner across the table.

Another great experience and fantastic meal at Timo. The food is consistently creative and delicious...I had lasagna that was ethereal... Service is impeccable (we love our waiter Jonathan). Always a festive atmosphere. Best restaurant in Miami Beach as far as I'm concerned.

Timo’s is bustling and has delectable Italian dishes. The burrata was very good for outside Italy. The Brussel Sprouts and Octopus Salads were fresh and delicious. The Squid Ink Seafood Linguine was cooked to perfection. The foie gras crostini was also excellent for outside France or Montreal. We will return in a heartbeat. My only complaint and it applies to most restaurants in South Florida and it’s the overpriced wine wherever we go. It’s gettin outta hand. 58$ for a bottle of their house Pinot Noir. Ouch.

Fabulous meal!! Food, service, management were all fantastic! It was our first time there and have changed our reservations to go back on New Year’s Day. The antipasto platter was exactly what one receives in Italy. The gnocchi and crab risotto were wonderful! Would highly recommend this restaurant!!

Four of us went to Timo for our Company Holiday lunch. We made reservations (obviously) but didn't need them. At 12:30pm on a weekday, they were almost empty. Of course we didn't mind the quiet and good service because of it.

Every dish was excellent. In order of preference:

1) Sweet corn & ricotta agnolotti
2) Squid Ink Fettuccini
3) Roasted duck breast with apple cider braised cabbage
4) Branzino al cartoccio

and best dessert

VANILLA BEAN CUSTARD WITH PISTACHIO STREUSEL, WHIPPED CHOCOLATE GANACHE AND PISTACHIO PRALINE

We also had a really good Sangiovese that Vivino rated a 4.0 for only $44 / bottle.

Hope this Helps...

Happy New Year!

Santa delivered another fabulous Christmas Eve dinner to us at Timo's this holiday season. Festive, upbeat, and always accommodating, they even had our favorite booth ready for us.
We love their Branzino prepared in Parchment paper with Asparagus and it never fails to please. We can dine here as often as we wish and after living in South Florida for over 40 years we do, but if you are visiting us ,it is well worth driving , or taking Uber or Lyft and making dinner at Timo's a must dinner choice during your stay

Tables were very close together and it was extremely loud to the point I actually had to lean over so that the person next to me could hear what I was saying. Food came out cold. The pizza we ordered practically fell apart - the dough was so thin and under cooked you couldn’t even pick it up it had to be eaten with a knife and fork. When we asked for it to be warmed up it didn’t come out any better.
Also, which seems to be the case in this geographical area for whatever reason, the tip is included and they don’t tell you so you have to be extremely vigilant because there is always that extra tip option.

My husband & I & another couple chose this restaurant due to good reviews & the close proximity to our Hotel (the Acqualina Spa & resort).

Ambiance: Nice. It’s a bit tight between tables and the tables are a bit small, at least the one we were seated at. Staff were very nice.

Food: We started with the oven roasted fresh mozzarella with eggplant, basil, heirloom tomatoes & crispy ciabatta. Two of us had a swordfish special served over spinach ravioli with a caprese filling topped with chilled octopus salad. It was so yummy. The fish was amazingly moist. My husband had squid ink fettuccine with steamed clams, shrimp & calamari. And our other friend had the burrata ravioli. We all thought the food was really good.

I would definitely recommend Timo’s if you’re in the area.

This has to be one of my favorite restaurants in the area and I wouldn’t miss a visit there each time I’m down here from NY.
Food is exquisite. We tend to do a lot of apps and share. Foie gras crostini is unbelievable - our favorite. We also loved the warm mushroom salad, risotto, pappardelle with pork ragu - amazing.
Main courses are also phenomenal and they make a great steak as well.
Highly recommend this place to anyone who enjoys fine dining and a nice atmosphere.
The staff is professional and completely on their game. Ask for Johnathan as your server, a real class act.
LOVE THIS PLACE!

Dinner with family including two children and one handicap person in a wheelchair. Staff was very accommodating, friendly, attentive but not intrusive. My picky grandsons were offered meals made especially for them and were thrilled with the food! I️ had the fish special and it was amazing. Light flaky tender fish served with polenta and red sauce with capers and olives. Everyone very happy with their selections as well. Will definitely come back.

Burrata, scallops and pumpkin soup were amazing to start with. Pizza crust was razor thin. We had black and white, duck and puttanesca. All were really tasty. Leave some room for dessert. Fruit compote with cheesecake mousse and profiteroles were out of this world. Food was 5 stars.
Don’t sit at the table near the kitchen. We felt like we were in the way. My purse got knocked down twice.

We love this restaurant. We always receive a warm greeting as returning customers.
The food is always well prepared and delicious. The staff is helpful with both the meal and wine suggestions. Leonardo is a wonderful waiter and has a great memory for detail.
There are many choices on the menu and you can return many times and still not try them all.
Our favourite in Florida!

One of my guests had an entire glass of wine spilled on her. She was soaked with entire shirt stained in red, hair wet, pants wet, etc. While clearly an accident, the manager never came over. After 30 minutes, we asked for the bill which was presented in full. I complained at that point to the manager who pushed back at my suggestion of a discount. Then he finally agreed. I have never seen such poor service at a restaurant.
