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.

“Couldn't really fault this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Delicious Venetian tapas. I wasn't aware that there was such a thing as Venetian tapas (having been to Venice) but it is, nonetheless, delicious. Setting is good, food tasty, service prompt and portion size very good for a tapas place which is usually rather bad value for money. I'll definitely be back.

“Venetian in Victoria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

There has been a dearth of decent restaurants in Victoria and then suddenly this brilliant Venetian inspired one bursts on to the scene. Set in a dull corporate hotel, the restaurant is full of buzzy atmosphere and is spacious and nicely designed. The food is little tapas style dishes with plenty of prosciutto and pizza type starters. Delicious pasta and grill. Wines are proper Italian well known ones and are fairly priced. Friendly service too though the M'D often looks frazzled. I've been twice in a week since it was highly recommended by a food critic friend. It was packed both times so book.

“Excellent but......”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We happened on Tozi by chance and thought we would try it. We were not disappointed - lovely restaurant, great food, wonderful wine and superb service - our waitress was a charming young lady from Milan.

But - I was baffled to get the bill with a 12.5% service charge AND a request for a gratuity. I'm very happy to pay a service charge OR a tip but I don't expect to be asked to pay BOTH. We left feeling embarrassed and uncomfortable - this may deter us from going again.

I thought it was illegal to add a service charge to the bill if it wasnt clear from the menu that there would be a service charge?

“Great to try a variety of dishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I took my Dad here for his birthday lunch at the end of August and was not disappointed, the food and service were great. It is not like a typical Italian restaurant, so don’t go if you just want some pasta. There is a wonderful choice of different portions to choose from and the idea is to share.

The portions aren’t huge, but they are sufficient. We ordered 5 dishes, all of which I would recommend, but the crab ravioli and sword fish stood out. The desserts are also delicious my coconut sorbet was out of this world. That I would have liked a little bigger!

The service is of a very high standard and the waiters are attentive without being intrusive. They are also very knowledgeable.

I didn’t think it was too costly, £55 for two. I would definitely go back
