Timo on Central greets you with spooky spiders, goblins, and bats - at least it does at this time of year! The eerily decked out patio beckons as you sit amongst cobwebs and glowing lights and take in the full moon, large amount of seating, and cool October temps. This is a gem and that's something you don't find often.... More

We love this place. It is a great place for food and drinks in the cooler weather as they have a great patio area. When it is hot outside, just go in. It is a small but lovely restaurant. The happy hour specials are great and run until 6:00. If you go on their email list, they will tell you... More

I have gone 3 times each time the person or persons that I went with ended up referring their friends and going again. It is very intimate inside. The patio is larger with trees, patio furniture a firepit and decorative lights. Love the Escargot Barcelona from the Tapas menu has the perfect accent of spinach and sundried tomatoes. The sausage... More

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
