One of our party had significant allergies issues and our server Leandro was extremely helpful. She was then able to enjoy her meal with no concerns.
Our food was very good and they were most accommodating for sharing.
Looking forward to returning.

It was a difficult experience sadly I wanted to like the place but the staff seemed inattentive to our needs I know they were busy and I don’t hold that against them at all but it definitely took a while for even just the drinks to come out, I felt very crammed into our table which was small and stuffed between two large groups which made getting up and the other tables that had their servers difficult to manage around us, our table was constantly getting bumped into which became highly aggravating after the 5th or 6th time. The meal was lackluster at best and looked and tasted like it was made hastily Italian food should be done with care and love, as should the guests be treated like family I didn’t feel the love and I won’t be returning or recommending it to anyone. It felt like paying 200 bucks to be ignored and leaving very unfulfilled.

An excellent meal and service. There to celebrate my wife's birthday and they did not disappoint. The lamb shank and orzo should not be missed.

Ever dish was over done. Over cooked and/or over smothered. Scallops where done properly but laid on mashed potatoes and beef ragu? Shrimp was wrapped in potatoes, overcooked, tasteless and dry. Whitefish special was done properly, but again drowned in polenta. Creme brûlée’s was good but again had strudel on the top and apple sauce on the bottom. Service was poor and us and those next to us were left to sit and each had to ask to get our bill.

TIMO has been a Sunny Isles staple for a long time, a reliable place for good, Italian food and great service. Had the zuppa de pesci and it was outstanding as was the buratta ravioli. Unlimited bread basket with a large selection of great wines and cocktail service. Can't go wrong with Timo.

The food was very good. Really enjoyed my night. I will say maybe it’s just a ageist thing but waiter was subpar and didn’t really check on us at all the bus help was more helpful then he was. Maybe if I was in my late 40s they would checked in more. It’s not the first time to help at a restaurant everything else was amazing. Good food good wine good atmosphere.

We told the restaurant via open table app and our server that one person in our party had severe nut allergies. His meal was reportedly nut free. We ordered the dessert from the same server who knew about the allergies and after it was set on our table and we had begun to eat it, I again confirmed with the server that the dessert was nut free. At that point he told us the dessert “probably” had walnuts in it. That was a very scary experience for us and we were told by another employee that it may contain walnuts because of cross contamination, but that was not likely. This restaurant is not good for individuals with food allergies. Thank goodness we did not have a reaction or have to use our epinephrine injector. Will not be going back.

The vegan tasting menu was okay at best. I could’ve cooked better stuff at home to be honest. However I’ve visited Timo as a non vegan twice before and each time the food has been superb so I’ll give it that. Especially the black and white pizza. Our waiter was enforcing gender roles with the paycheck as a joke and although I’m not one to care about that, I’d rather him put the check on the table instead of handing it to me (we were on a date and usually split the bill). Although the noise level is loud, the ambience is quite gorgeous for a restaurant. Low noise, great table placement and a well kept bar area and restrooms are a plus. If you go here, get pizza, but don’t expect something super high class either. Would recommend.

Finally tried Timo after knowing about it for years. Extensive wine list, but some of the more typically reasonable labels I found to be extremely high-priced. One normally $10 bottle priced at $68 -- not $48 which I typically see on menus. Completely unreasonable in my opinion. We ordered an eggplant appetizer which was tasty and just o.k., but nothing to write home about. I opted for pasta - since I could then really compare it to other Italian restaurants we enjoy. How do you make a Fra Diavolo linguine absolutely tasteless? I do not know, but I was completely underwhelmed and disappointed. I've heard wonderful things about this restaurant over the years, but it fell short of my expectations. But the dessert was absolutely delicious and the service was terrific as well.
