Me and my friends have used Il toro twice for our yearly traditional Christmas meal and other occasions and recently I took my partner. The food is always amazing, staff are friendly and the place is clean, modern and has an Italian style atmosphere which adds to the experience!

My husband and I dine here, in the beautiful surroundings, regularly and always feel like we are on holiday in Italy. Farouk the maitre'd is the most charming and helpful person you could wish to meet. Indeed all the staff go the extra mile to provide a special dining experience. They recently sang 'Happy Birthday' to my husband and presented... More

Went to Il Toro after walking out of another restaurant in Horwich (see my reviews). Knew that we would be most welcome. Given great service and really good food. The quality and the quantity at Il Toro is beyond belief. The atmosphere is great and the manager one of the nicest I have met.

Having booked last minute and never been before we wondered what we could expect from Il Toro. It was wonderful! The service was fantastic, staff friendly and helpful, we didn't feel rushed and nothing was too much. The food was lovely and the atmosphere great. We will definitely be going again.

We have visited Il Toro many times and the experience has always been good. We have also been with friends who have been similarly impressed. There is a good choice of food, nice wine list and everything we're eaten has been fresh and well cooked. The staff are both professional and friendly. The service is attentive without being overbearing -... More

I rarely post about restaurants other than to praise. I'm making an exception in this instance. My wife and I and two great friends ate on Saturday evening (23May) at this venue - close to my home. First impressions were favourable: busy, well decorated, lighting good, table ready upon arrival. The menu was not too fullsome, giving the impression that... More
