Description: TOZI is a vibrant Italian restaurant and bar specialising in Venetian cicchetti (small plates) and classic Italian cocktails. Inspired by the casual dining ethos of the Veneto region, TOZI puts the emphasis on quality, seasonal ingredients - sourced where possible from the best Italian producers. The all-day menu is served in the restaurant and bar, and is designed to be shared amongst friends, family and colleagues in an informal, welcoming environment. TOZI interiors combine natural materials such as wood, marble, bronze and stone and one-off, hand-picked elements either custom-designed for TOZI or hand-picked from London's best vintage markets. The feel is warm and informal, with vintage Italian prints adorning the walls and a sense of theatre provided by an open kitchen and colourful displays of salami, breads and vegetables.

“Delicious Italian!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Tozi is not too far from Buckingham Palace so we made a booking for lunch after watching the Changing of the Guards. We really enjoyed our meal at Tozi. The setting was modern and stylish and the service was great. The dishes were in small plates, great for sharing and absolutely delicious. The crab ravioli is recommended. Complimentary bread with olive oil/balsamic vinegar is given at the start of the meal. The prices are not too expensive either.

“Excellent in every way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

This restaurant deserves its TA rating. Great food, cooked to perfection. Wonderful choices, everything fresh and a good wine list too. A little pricey but worth it. Staff are very friendly, courteous and not obtrusive. Highly recommend.

“Heavenly food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We stumbled across this gem simply because it was round the corner from the hotel we were staying in. A warm welcome and friendly atmosphere greeted us, with helpful and friendly staff. The tapas style food was perfection itself. My ricotta stuffed ravioli with truffle was so divine I ordered it twice! We had an entertaining and brilliant evening and shall definitely be returning when next in London.

“Great Concept, Excellent Excecution”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

As a regular at the VPP I have been very excited at the prospect at trying out the new restaurant, but, as it is a concept that is better to share rather than have one's own I have had to wait until I had a fellow colleague along for the ride.

I was not disappointed. The Italian tapas concept was exciting - I would recommend three dishes per person. The service was prompt and efficient and the waiters were knowledgable. They have a good wine list. The dishes we had were excellent - I would recommend the gnocchi and the octopus in particular.

And, the restaurant has an excellent buzz. I think this works for business, friends and pre-theatre but would not recommend it for a romantic tete a tete.

“Dinner in Pimlico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Really enjoyed my meal, great restaurant that I didn't know was on my doorstep. If you go here please try the lemon basil sorbet - amazing! Will return with friends, can't believe this gem is within walking distance. Meal for two with a glass of prosecco and a carafe of wine £75, well worth it! Go, you will not be disappointed. Lady at the next table was having a birthday meal, staff were fantastic at sorting out the cake and she was clearly really touched. All in all a great place.
