I have visited Il Toro a number of times and keep coming back due to its great food, service and decor. The staff are really friendly and accommodating, there's a great atmosphere at the weekend and even on a weeknight. The food is always good and well presented - much better than other Italians in the area. Il toro is a must visit for italian food lovers!

Really good Italian style cooking. Friendly staff can't wait to visit again in a character building. Lovely rendition of " Happy Birthday" and a candle festuned tira misu!

Attended this restaurant with my girlfriend on a Sunday evening.
Lovely atmosphere and we found that the staff were very polite and helpful.

We were seated in the lounge area and served drinks immediately whilst we looked through the menus.
They have a great deal on between Sundays and Thursdays which allows you 3 courses for £14.95 on various dishes.

Will certainly be returning in the near future.

We are delighted to add our positive review of Il Toro after a memorable evening there last night. Your first impression may be that the bar/lounge area is quite small but do not be deterred, in our experience the tables in the dining rooms are well spaced out enough for you to have either an intimate night for two or be there with a group of friends. In our case there were 6 of us celebrating a birthday and the staff could not have been more attentive.
We were immediately taken to a spacious round table and although they were very busy on a Saturday night first drinks then our food, wine and water arrived so swiftly we were all impressed. It goes without saying that the quality of the food was excellent otherwise we would not be posting such a positive review........and, yes, they did make a fuss of the birthday girl which all added to our enjoyment of the evening.
Can't wait to go to Il Toro again - highly recommended!

Had a great night with friends. 8 of us in total. Food was great and we had quite a lot to drink as well. I went earlier in the week also with my husband and the same good food was served with great service. They could not be more attentive. This restaurant is good for any occasion. Tonight however although we enjoyed it the table next to us complained at the end when leaving that we where too loud. What could the proprietor do then. All they had to do was slip a quite word to us and the problem would have been solved. Hope it does not stop them coming back. The food is too good to miss.
