We ate here last night on the recommendation of a friend and really enjoyed our visit. The menu is fairly extensive without being over facing and has a fantastic choice of dishes plus several specials. The restaurant itself is decorated very well and has a lovely relaxed atmosphere. When we arrived we were given the choice of sitting in the bar area to make our choices or go straight to the table. We chose the bar area and it was a lovely relaxed area to peruse the menu whilst enjoying a glass of wine.

There is a great selection on the menu ranging from Italian classics to specials such as fillet steak in a Roquefort sauce. The food was delicious and the portions of a good size. We left feeling very satisfied but without leaving food on our plates. The service was good and the staff very attentive.

We will definitely be returning to try some of the other dishes on the menu.

Have not been to this restaurant for a couple of years and decided to try it out...we had a fabulous meal!!! My steak was superb (and I am very fussy when it comes to my steaks!) my husband said his chicken liver starter was very good and the presentation was impressive. We will definitely return and I would highly recommend!!!

Living just up the road from Il Toro I had always been a bit reluctant to go there for a meal. Since trying it two years ago I can honestly say I've never had a bad meal there. The service is excellent and the wine menu is as comprehensive as you need it to be, with a good selection of nice wines. Since we started going we have taken friends and family, who in turn have started to go there on a regular basis and take their friends and familes.......you cannot get better praise than that.

We have visited all the restaurants in Horwich and the surrounding areas, some good, some not so good .... Il Toro beats them all! Delicious food, very well presented and served by efficient and friendly staff, and the decor is lovely too!!

Our last visit was four weeks ago, the night before our trip to New York. Everything was just as wonderful as it always is :)

We have been for the past three years on Christmas Eve and it is always a lovely way to start off the Festive Season, no doubt this year will be the same.

Florindo, Faruk and the lovely lady who is sometimes in charge are the kind of staff that take a very good restaurant and make it a FANTASTIC restaurant ... or should that be FANTASTICO ?
