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

We had a lovely meal. Everything took a long time to arrive; but the manager was extremely apologetic and gave us a couple of complimentary drinks without us mentioning any problems. I expect they had just had a very busy start to the evening and things had gotten backed-up. It's amongst the best restaurants in Horwich for sure and it... More

On arrival, we had to wait whilst the manager spoke to a young waiter in a rather rude manner about attending to another table - not a... More

Having lived in Florence, I am very selective when it comes to Italian cuisine. Il Toro is a modern and tasteful Italian restaurant which serves food of the highest standard. I have been a repeat customer over the last few years and I feel that the standard of foods surpasses all other restaurants in the vicinity. Specials are modern and... More

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
