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!

Timo's never disappoints. Have been eating here since it opened and have never had a bad meal nor has anyone that have joined me. The basic menu is always changing while keeping some all time favorites. The martinis are always excellent.
Looking forward to my next visit.

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.

Excellence all around...friend and I shared a oyster size mushrooms arugula salad, branzino cooked in 'parchment with asparagus, a thin crusted tomato pizza, and the grand finale: superb dessert!!!
The service was impecable and courteous--timed perfectly, respectful of our relaxed conversation.
Highly recommended!!!!!

A reservation was a very good idea, as the dining room was full. Our meal was delicious, options for all palates, even a strict vegan. The service was the highlight, ours was flawless. We would have had dessert, but the pizza and the bread were stars, and so we couldn't spare the calories. We'll be back for sure.

I always said that Timo was one of my favorite restaurants. But this time I had the Miami Spice menu and it was really disappointing. Food was not good at all ...we left almost most of it in our plates and the waiters didn't even bother to ask what was wrong with it.
It's sad because I used to go very often there but It has changed a lot

Timo is a fantastic hidden gem for lunch, especially in August/September when they offer a rotating "miami spice" pre-fixe lunch (3 courses) for $23. They don't shout about their participation - you can't see the lunch menu on the website, and they don't post it online either - but it's worth finding out more about. Terrific place, very attentive service, and I feel like I own the place at lunch. Time to share the secret.

Reservation was for 8:45pm didn't get seated until atleast 9:15-9:20 ridiculous.

Service was not horrible but he did take a while to get our drinks,order and food out due to him having too many tables.

Beside that food quality was good,wine good,dessert good.

Food was excellent. Special orders and substitutions were handled with a smile. Service was very attentive but not intrusive. The entrees were not all served together but we were a table of 7 so that was understandable. Overall 5 stars and I can't wait to go back.
