I can imagine that place as a perfect for romance dinner. Candles, ancient sculpture (probably not original), slow service, well done food. Everything refers to kisses, hugs, naked bodies and flavoured with jazz music from 50's. Excellent mixt. Prices are rather high and it is a main reason you can be disappointed. Compensation brings women from the owner family loitered... More

We have frequented this restaurant on many occasions. Some friends who are Italian say this is the best Italian outside of Italy !! Now there's a commendation if ever I heard one. Great atmosphere, great food and great value.

Pizza was very good and great choice of toppings, however, wine was rather expensive for house wine and the wine list was prohibitively expensive for Cowes. Will visit again.

This is a lovely friendly family run restaurant, we have eaten here several times and always had a warm welcome and excellent food. Best fillet of steak I have ever eaten!

If you want superb quality food service and atmosphere then this is the place for you.... The waitress was attentive, yet not intrusive whilst serving my meal. The food was top quality and the atmosphere was second to none. I will be definitely going again and would suggest to any fine diners that they do the same. Value for money... More

Failing to get into "Coast" across the road we turned to find Toninos. This "accidental" find was very lucky indeed. It didn't seem that busy which made us wonder. However, the food was simply stunning. We are Italian food lovers anyway, but it's been a long time since we've found food at this standard. While pretty simple inside the restaurant,... More

having just moved to Cowes and loving Italian food I have visited Toninos twice in the past 3 weeks. There is a good specials menu that changes weekly with lots of varied choices, but for a town like Cowes I found the prices high [average started cost at about £8 and main courses circa £16]. the big problem for me...

We booked a table on a Saturday night and the atmosphere was very lively - the service was average, but the food was disappointing and expensive. My husband enjoyed his starter, but my lobster thermidor should not have been given that title - my main course was enjoyable and unusual, tagliatelle with scallops and caviar - we did both enjoy...

Very authentic Italian food. My partner as is her way had the pizza which she found to be perfectly to her taste. It is nice to find somewhere that bothers to make their own dough. I had the Controfilleto della casa and would recommend it to anyone. Their Tiramisu is also to die for.

Food ok,mixed starter very nice but mains just all right, as it's genuine Italian I expected risotto to be really good but it was too dry, although flavour was good.
