A feast fit for Italians

Booked at short notice and it was Valentine's night so a little surprised to find they had room for 6 people but need not have worried. Restaurant full but not overcrowded and not rushed. Our party included three Italian cousins, residents of Milan but from south of Italy. All are excellent cooks... read more

I've posted a couple of reviews of 'Ill Toro' and all of them have been favourable. Once again we decided on the last minute to eat out. Booking is a simple and pain free affair. The welcome once you arrive is always warm without being over the top. Service is excellent and without fuss, and the food was without fault.... More

Visited II Toro at the beginning of January to celebrate my birthday. The service was excellent and the staff were friendly and professional. We both had steak which was cooked to perfection. We've been to II Toro on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed. Our New Year Resolution? to go more often.

Set menu is good value although would be nice if they changed some of the options occasionally for frequent visitors. Last visit was Monday 12 January. Food was very good especially the... More

To be honest, this menu gives you a better choice than many restaurants have on the A La Carte! Service was excellentand just the right speed. I can thoroughly recommend the... More

I have been to il Toro about 5 times over the past 6 months. I really like the staff and love their menu and the way the chefs prepare and serve the food. The steaks are particularly good. The one problem with the place is the consistently loud music. I can understand the staff turning the music up when they... More
