This must be the best restaurant in Bolton. The decor is elegant, contemporary hand tasteful. The service is courteous and professional and the food is outstanding. Our table of 4 enjoyed a wonderful antipasto platter, beautifully smooth pate which was presented with a modern twist and a fresh crayfish starter. We then enjoyed 2 orcini risotto dishes, cooked specifically to... More

We had a lovely meal on Sunday evening at Il Toro. To start we ordered bruschetta and pate della casa. I opted for the pasta of the day, my other half went with Faruk's recommendation of the lamb shank, although he almost ordered the sirloin because he really liked the sound of the mushroom, brandy and cream sauce. Faruk said... More

My partner wanted to visit il toro again as it was good the last time we came. This was on a Monday and just the two of us and the service and food was on point but tonight there was about 10 of us and it seemed to lack both in service and some of the people's food. When arriving... More

A warm welcome, great service and fabulous food. Sylvia, our waitress was welcoming, chatty and very polite. We ordered the set price 3 course menu and it was Devine. They dropped a mark due to the potatoes being over salted but apart from that, all good. A great place to host visiting parents.

When I initially made the booking (some six weeks in advance I hasten to add) I specifically requested the smaller room to the left as you enter the restaurant; the... More
