“Nice Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Lovely Italian food, nice setting and attentive staff. The menu is good with something for everyone, the olives for starter are the biggest I've had. Great location next to Barbican.

“Friendly Italian restaurant. Good food, nice atmosphere, reasonably priced.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

Eaten at Toto's several times on our visits to York to see our daughter. Very close to Barbican Theatre. Nice atmosphere, brings back lovely memories of Italian holidays.
Food is well presented & delicious. The lemon sole was wonderful & I tried my husband's Totos Special Pizza, delicious.
Prices very reasonable. Good selection of wine. Can't recommend dessert as we were too full to try any but there was good assortment on menu. Next time we visit must try save room for dessert!

“The fantastic quality and service never changes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We have visited on many occasions and I only recently realised I hadn't written a review.It really is as good as some of the other reviewers have said.It is very traditional with fun Staff,great food and a wide menu that should cover all tastes and pockets.After a few visits you are soon remembered and that always adds to the enjoyment.I particularly like the restaurant not being in the city centre with all the other chain establishments.This is a truly independent restaurant and family run.Having said that,it is only about 5 mins. walk in to town and close to The Barbican.Try it-you will not be disappointed.

“Take a trip to Italy.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

We've lived close to this Italian restaurant for 3 months and never tried it. These days Italians are everywhere, so we didn't deem this to be any different from the menu or the outside. However we gave it a shot as it's close to home and had some good reviews.
It really was a pleasant surprise. Decorated in a beautiful and authentic Italian style, it really does feel like you've been transported to Italy. The food was fresh and delicious and the menu concise and small. They're not trying to wow the customer with the most wacky, 'gourmet' ingredients. This is just good, honest, food. There were two waitresses. One had a very strong Italian accent, which added to the experience, the other was younger and from Yorkshire. Both were extremely efficient and polite. This restaurant appears to be family owned. If you are looking for something authentic, well priced and true to real Italian food, look no further.

“A Restaurant with Genuine Character”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

There are quite a few Italian Restaurants in York and most of them are good, but my own favourite is Toto's. Although a little bit out of the town centre it is possible to park nearby and well worth the journey. The atmosphere is great and feels very Italian. All the usual dishes are to be found on the menu, together with a specials board, and service is good. It is very popular at the weekends and booking is advisable.
