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.

“Italian Tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

I went there with my boyfriend. The service was good, nice staff.
The restaurant is open on the kitchen and you can see what they are doing which i love.
The food was nice even if i have to say I was expecting better.
I would return if i have the opportunity.

“"Great, also for grandma"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

It's been a wonderful surprise discovering Tozi, close to Victoria Station. Being Italian I am very keen to discover new styles of cooking but I cannot say the same about my grandma taste, more traditional. Home made recipes.
Anyway, it's been a success. Because of the concept of small plates, we tried different dishes, all mouth-watering. You can have a bit of meat, fish, pizza and veggie in the same meal. Ravioli my favourite.
Staff is friendly and helpful and choice of food and wine allows everyone to be pleased.
Worthy to be called Italian Restaurant.
Be back again.

“great surprise next door”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

As an Italian I have always been very sceptical about Italian Restaurants in London (all about "spaghetti" and "lasagne"). Tozi gave me the impression of being in Italy. The quality of the ingredients is excellent. I recommend the ravioli (in both versions) and the fried fish Italian way.
Only drawback ...a bit pricey given the "cicchetti" portion size!

“Best Italian ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Arranged by hotel Concierge and by far the best Italian i've ever been to in the world. The "tappas" concept is supper, and the chicken was very very nice. Can't wait to come back!

“One word: outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014 via mobile

The restaurant was a little in the middle of nowhere....but the atmosphere was really cool. I felt like I was in Italy. A cool spot. Firstly, the service was impeccable. A really friendly waiter (who I think was the manager?) who was really helpful and recommended a wonderful wine.

It's a tapas type place...and the food, which came out at the perfect pace, was SUPERB. amazing.
A memorable experience all around.
