“Excellent preparation and most gracious service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

We went to celebrate my husband's birthdays based on reviews in several guidebooks. I was surprised that there were no previous reviews for this place.

I had a delicious 3 course dinner- everything was special; including lobster pieces incorporated into mashed potatoes. My husband's a la carte choice of sea bass was outstanding as well.

I must praise the wine list- there were several reasonably priced bottles amongst the pricier choices.

“Great Food but they were not ready for the crowd on a big weekend.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The service was slow at first. They were slammed and understaffed on a Monday lunch when Miami was hosting the BCS Championship Football game.
Once they caught up they were very friendly and personable.

The food was outstanding! The veal meatball pizza was excellent and the steak sandwhich was cooked and seasoned just right.
They had Pappy Van Winkle something a friend and I had been searching for so of course we tried it with our lunch.

“A good find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We recently enjoyed Timo's. The service was excellent and the food was presented and prepared to perfection. We were seated right away for our 7pm reservation on a Saturday evening and the attmosphere was very enjoyable. We both had the calamari which was melt in your mouth and full of flavours, then enjoyed a special of the evening Rack of Lamb which was cooked to perfection and very tasty. For desert we shared the chocolate lava cake with banana icecream which was plenty for 2 people and very good as well.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Very nice restaurant. However, we were disappointed that the website menu did not reflect what they were serving when we got there. If you want Osso Buco, check again. They have not updated their web info. However, the food was wonderful, and the atmosphere lovely.

“Outstanding service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

We booked a table for 12 people on Xmas Eve. The service was faultless and the food was excellent. The restaurant was packed but we had such a lovely evening.
