Longtime proprietor Piero Amodio often greets patrons personally at this upmarket Italian restaurant in Kensington. The dining room is airy and understated, with hardwood floors, small pendant lights, and white-clothed tables surrounded by velvety brown banquettes. During the day, Timo draws passing shoppers and office workers with its affordable set lunch menus; after dark, however, the restaurant transforms into a romantic date spot (with a pricier menu). Dishes change seasonally, with possible options including cream of artichoke ravioli, and char-grilled rib eye with roasted rosemary potatoes. The wine list has more than 120 bottles, representing almost every region in Italy.
