it was okay but the portions we’re very small and expensive. Also, they asked us if we wanted water on the table and charged us 6 euros for a bottle of water without telling us we had to pay for it. We ate the special of the night which on the menu was 32 euros but they charged us 40. :( Overall not very nice.

Always love do go there. Was just disappointed that they asked us to leave our table so quickly due to a second shift. We didn’t even have time to order tea and desert and I wasn’t informed about this during my booking. They said they had called about this but never did. This really gave us the feeling we were not welcome so this is not the place to go for a relaxed evening out.

Restaurant TOZI
Responded on 14 June 2021

Thank you for your feedback. I am truly sorry you did not have the welcoming experience you know and return to us for. Due to current safety measures and limited seats available, your table is reserved for 1,5 hour. This is noted on our website and on OpenTable, however I am sorry if your were not aware. It's a shame you could not enjoy our coffee and desserts on this occasion and I sincerely hope you'll give us the chance to welcome you for a relaxed evening in the future. Warm regards, Elina

Good service and great food, on the expensive side but it was worth it. Quite big and diverse menu, not the typical Italian dishes (at least not for me). Nice setting, only a bit noisy, especially now with the mouth masks it was sometimes a bit hard to understand the waiters but they are nice and polite.

Dear Irenev, Thank you for your kind and honest feedback! We are delighted to hear you enjoyed and found our selection of dishes different.

Bediening is goed opgeleid, netjes en in het algemeen leuke ambiance. Helaas waren verschillende drankjes en wijnen niet voorradig, waarvoor geen alternatief geboden werd. Bij 5 x nee hebben we niet, zou het fijn zijn als de bediening iets gelijkwaardigs voorstelt of voor een vergelijkbare prijs aanbiedt. Het eten was qua prijs-kwaliteit is niet geheel in evenwicht. Kleine porties voor shared dining voor een vrij hoge prijs, maar niet bijzonder en vrij vlak in smaak.

We were pleasantly surprised by the lovely interior. They explained the sharing concept & menu upfront and adviced us to order two dishes per person. However, this was not enough for us, we needed at last 4/5 dishes per person. Food was tasty in general but portions were very very small. Just three pieces of ravioli for 15 euros is out of proportion. Also service was quite poor, our bottle of wine arrived after finishing our main dishes. We left feeling still a bit hungry and paid around 60 euros per person. Would not recommend.
