The hostess was great and seated us right away. From there on it was terrible. When the waiter took our order he was checked out. He brought our food then we asked for our check because we were in a hurry. He walked out 3 or 4 times and still no check. So we asked the manager and he didn't apologize or anything. If you are not a regular don't expect good service. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND!

When I was looking ot find a good place for a party of 15, I searched the usual foodie sites to see what I could find. Timo in Sunny Isles Beach came up a number of times with solid reviews, posted recently and with consistent praise for this jewel in the strip center building on Collins Ave. We were seated promplty and it was all excellent from there. Our server peppered the table with his choice of appetizers (flat breads from the wood burning oven, steak tartar, grilled calamari) that were appreciated by all. The wine list is decidedly Italian but we found a California Zin that fit the bill across everyones dinner choices. Some but not all the pastas are made in house but our server made it an easy choice by steering my to the Fazzoletti with slow roasted suckling pig....fabulous. All entrees from the butternut squash risotto to the branzino were wonderful. For one of our gluten free friends many choices offered. Our server brough the meal to fine finish as it was started. He peppered the table with a mix of desserts that were perfect choices. Service was attentive but never obtrusive. High marks for hospitality all the way around. Would recommend to anyone

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.

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.

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.
