I love Timo's! Everything here is made in a wood-fired oven. The pizza is extraordinary (even for a "pizza town"). The appetizers are also just wonderful. Great specials on Monday night (date night) and a Timo's Tuesday special each week if you sign up for their weekly email. Very nice dog-friendly outdoor patio.

We came just a few minutes before Happy Hour ended but our server took care of us bringing me a glass of wine and my husband a scotch. We ordered an appetizer and sat on the patio enjoying the guitar player/singer who was very pleasant - playing mostly 60's & 70's music. After quite awhile our waiter came back &... More

Went to Timo's for dinner with friends Saturday evening, and the food and service were excellent. We ate on the patio - the weather was perfect for it. The butternut squash soup was probably the best ever made, and the salads were fresh and delightful. Eggplant lasagne and salmon were perfect. We arrived before 6:00, so it was still happy... More

Well, I sorta like that Timo is not crowded and its funky charming patio is a quiet lunch, glass of wine and book (oh, latest book is Lilly Gardner's "Betting Blind"). The menu is unique and delicious ... one choice is very good thin crust pizza, I recommend the "Timo Trio" small sandwich, soup & salad. If you see someone... More

We went to Timo's to celebrate a big project. It was a very cool place and the food was special and matched the eclectic look of the restaurant. I am not sure if it was a car repair shop before, but it sure looks like a conversion complete with the large pull up exterior door. The service was really friendly... More

Good selection of food, drinks and specials. We found it odd that certain food took an extra amount of time to come out of the kitchen. Great fire pit, but not all the lights worked around our table, so it was pretty hard to see each other (I think the experience would have been better inside).

Great neighborhood wine & patio bar for wood oven made pizzas. Patio seating is wonderful with a mid-fire pit to keep you warm during the cool evenings in October. Great selection of wines, salads are tasty, and the selection of wood-oven pizzas are excellent. Outdoor music played by a DJ for easy listening while dining. Have returned here many occasions...

The smell of the pizza oven, the quiet outside patio, the clean modernity all seem to make me want to relax, even before I get my generous glass of wine. The food is tasty, can't remember what I had, but I liked it. Good for vegetarians, though plenty of meat dishes. Reasonable prices. Parking a little weird, but if bank... More

They have a wonderful patio area where you can enjoy a nice selection of tapas and a good selection of wines to accompany them. The white house made sangria was especially nice as was the unique choices of bruschetta
