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.

“Won't be a secret much longer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Italian tapas! I never knew there was such a thing but there is and it is from Venice. Tozi is fantastic with so much choice. Truffle ravioli, beef rib, cold cuts, eggplant Parmesan, pizza and so much more. Awesome place.

“It was all fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

One of the best restaurants anywhere in the world! Everything was superb from the small wood fired pizzas to the wine selections. Carlos the bar manager is one if the best in the business. While your in London do not miss out on Tozi.

“An interesting twist on tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

This restaurant is especially convenient to Victoria Station, and the two theatres currently showing Wicked and Billy Elliott (saw this while in London... a great show!!).

We made a 545 reservation on a Thursday.... wasnt really needed as the place never totally filled. Three cocktails ... gin and tonic, Bramble and Mojito, were all good enough for seconds.

This is a restaurant where good server can really help guide you through the menu, and use his or her knowledge of portion size so you dont over order. The conventional wisdom here is that each person should have enough if you order three dishes (with exceptions that the server can help with).

For example, the selection of cold meats and cheeses was large enough to count for one portion for each of us. Same for the asparagus risotto. Then we ordered the ox cheeks ( a little weird, but OK), Crab ravioli (excellent) and the venetian scallop (really one very large scallop). It was plenty for 3.

Desserts were also excellent, with peaches and ice cream, Chocolate del ice with coconut sorbet, and berries with a limoncello cream sauce.

Two rounds of drinks, and all the above and we were out the door for around $200 for the three of us. Not bad for a good quality city restaurant in London. Service was excellent helping us out. Decor is modern but very tasteful. I highly recommend and definitely would return.

“Molto Bene!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

We were delighted with our choice of Tozi for dinner after reading the wonderful reviews here! The restaurant itself has a chic modern feel with a large open dining room and views of the kitchen. Our group of 3 started off with a cows milk cheese aged in Barolo grapes with a fantastic chutney-like sauce, a tomato bruschetta, eggplant parmesan and zucchini fritte, then followed with a crispy pork belly with a superb sweet soy glaze. Then we ordered an out-of-this-world buffalo mozzarella ravioli with shaved black truffles and a penne pasta with a melt-in-your mouth pork ragu. Every one of the dishes was noteworthy and exceptional. For dessert we chose fresh peaches in amaretto and a chocolate delice cake with an extraordinary coconut sorbet, both to die for! The waiter brought us complimentary limoncello to finish our memorable meal. Don't miss the house favorite Bushy Fizz cocktail and the draught Prosecco (yes!) As the other reviews have said, the service is attentive but not overbearing. This restaurant hits an absolute homerun in every category! Reserve well in advance!
