“Cute little Italian place”
Reviewed 18 March 2014 via mobile

It doesn't look like much on the outside but the ambience is lovely inside. Service was superb. Food was good however my partner wasn't too impressed with his clam pasta dish.

“They know how to do it right”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

I and my spouse visited this place recently to try their degustation menu. The overall impression: outstanding! Everything was right - food, service, live music, wine list, location and price (we used a discount coupon, which made it even better). After living for last three years in Vietnam with its great French cuisine, we looked at Italian places somewhat down (they are often great, lively, fresh, but not that sophisticated and classy). I should say Toto's has helped us to redress the balance - the food was complex, well balanced, not overwhelming and not too heavy (especially their dolci - deserts). Wine selection was adequate - we could get very nice drops from Italy and other wine places of the world were also represented. Perhaps the only item that I would change there are the chairs - they are of a wrong type and they are not really too comfortable.

“Great Service”
Reviewed 13 March 2014 via mobile

Dined for dinner. Good food. Staff very friendly and efficient. Surrounding very dim lit mainly by candles. Close inspection revealed perhaps why. I think Toto is in dire need of a makeover!

“Amazing meal fresh seafood and lamb”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

we went for dinner last night at toto and it was really amazing.
we sat in outside seas which was nice than inside settings ( at least for us) decorated by cutted wood in balcony.
we had lamb chop, their special of the day clam soup, and duck ravioli.
every single one of them were amazing. portions are smaller than normal italian restaurant so definitely recommend to take appetizer and main otherwise you will be hungry.
food take kind of long time to come out but it was so worth it.
I had Renzo Chianti which was not so good.
waiter had great knowledge of their menu and explained us very well.
would love to come back again.
