The restaurant was very quiet and the service was attentive and efficient. The caprese salad was quite good but the amount of mozzarella was miniscule. Visiting Toto on our 8th night in Phuket and having shopped frequently at the excellent nearby markets we couldn't figure out how and where the chef was able to find the wilted brown lettuce for the mixed salad. It was awful. The main courses, however, were okay. Great steak, perfectly cooked but served with potatoes that were almost raw. My partner had a terrific thin crust pizza. The wine list is small but okay. We thought it was very expensive for what we got. Not a great experience overall and won't be going back.

Limoncello used to be a good Italian restaurant at Boat Lagoon. They recently moved to Laguna and combined with a long standing restaurant there called Toto. The result is a mess. The sign says Toto and Limoncello but there is only one very limited menu that is a holdover from Toto. Service was appalling with only one man taking orders for multiple tables. Our drinks never arrived. Food dishes came 30 minutes apart so some people at our table were finished before oethers were served. Food was appallingly bad.

Stay away.

If you get to see your food on your table after less than 1 hour after placing your order and it happens to be the right one, then consider yourself lucky! Went to Toto's on a quiet evening and were one of only 3 tables being served. It took the waiters 15 minutes to take our orders and 15 minutes later, another waiter came back to confirm our order because the previous one got it all wrong. When the food finally came some 45 minutes later, 2 out of 5 dishes were wrong and the drinks hadn't yet arrived. Hungry as we were, we kept the 2 wrong orders and asked them not to bother preparing our initial order again. another 35 minutes later, just as were getting ready to pay and leave, 3 new dishes arrive, which include 2 of our original order and a new one, probably destined for the table next to ours. After a small discussion with the manager, they took the 3 dishes back and the guy at the table next to ours started yelling at the waiters because he had been waiting for his order more than an hour and a half...
Apart from this mishap, the food was excellent and among the best Italian food I ever had - even in Italy. Go there if you're not starving and in the mood for an extended, excellent Italian meal.

We have been coming to Phuket for 10 years and this is a favourite of our pizza-loving son!
Toto is a handy Italian restaurant in Cherngtalay village centre set alongside a wide choice of restaurants and bars. The inside part lacks atmosphere so we always eat at the outdoor area in the middle of the square. Lovely atmosphere with trees wrapped in lights and candles on the tables. There is a fabulous wood burning pizza oven in the middle (don't sit too close or you will roast!) which delivers the best pizzas available in the area. If you ask, the chef will let your children make and bake their own pizzas. The menu is big with some lovely pastas and risottos as well as some tasty meat dishes. Toto have a large pick-up truck and, if you don't mind sitting in the open back section, they will collect you from your hotel and take you home again afterwards (many of the restaurants offer this service) Perfect for groups, families and couples who enjoy casual food in a lively atmosphere.
Tip: don't forget your mozzie repellent as they come out to play here in the evenings!
