Great dinner with friends - given quantity we ate also price was ok. Although we had to wait a little to get our table (we were 15-20 minutes late from scheduled time and called in advance to say so, I suspect they gave away our original table) but we were just 6 guys so not a problem to wait at the bar. Will be back again

Good formula, sort of Italian tapas. Wine far too expensive. Service and food a good four star.

Everything we ordered came at once, and the crab ravioli got cold before we could eat them. We went for a pre-theatre meal at 6pm when it was still fairly quiet and the staff wasn’t busy. They whisked the empty plates away as soon as we finished the last bite which was a bit annoying. We weren’t in a rush and I said that when we ordered.
I found the wine by the glass list a bit limited, really not much choice.
We finished with a delicious dessert, pistachio tiramisu, and left happy.

Perfect place for a pre-theatre meal. The set priced menu was very good quality and reasonably priced. The staff were extremely friendly and efficient. Overall a very enjoyable start to our evening. We would both recommend this restaurant wholeheartedly.

We had a fabulous pre theatre supper. The service was excellent and waiter even asked us what time we needed to vacate to ensure we were served in time

Nice circular table by window and delicious food - all small sharing dishes.

We loved all the dishes - probably would not order the lobster linguine again but then again lobster probably best eaten from shell

We’ll be back!

We went to Tozi before seeing Hamilton and our meal was fabulous! Our waiter asked if we were dining before the theater and made sure that we our food was well timed and not rushed. The menu is laid out very well so you truly are sampling dishes of all different types and each was delicious!

We were there for dinner on Christmas Day (special set menu), full payment req. in advance. The latter was only disclosed after booking.

Culatello d.Z., pear, endive & parmesan: a bit basic, but should work. Only they were out of endive and the pear didn't taste of anything.
Fritto: The squid was nice, but we couldn't taste the red mullet or samphire, both were overpowered by the too-thick batter.
W. chicory, chard & gorgonzola tart: too much cheese and salt. Decent, in a comfort food sort of way.
Buffalo ricotta ravioli & black truffle: too heavy on the butter and only black truffles, still, it worked and fit the festive brief.
Pumpkin tortelli, prawns & chilli: the prawns tasted livery (disgusting), the filling was tasteless and the tomato sauce sickly-sweet. No pumpkin or chilli in sight. No, thanks.
Chargrilled seabass, Castelluccio lentils, parsnip crisps & salsa verde: an altogether very boring dish, both in concept and execution.
Roasted stuffed guinea fowl the stuffing tasted mostly like ragù alla bolognese, good in itself, but much too dominant.
Warm panettone, mascarpone cream: good panettone is light, fluffy and moist. This one tasted like a stale shop-bought one had been sliced and chucked in a toaster, making it hard and bone-dry. An insult.
Robiola rocchetta, pear cugnà: The cheese was creamy but very subtle flavour-wise, the sauce mainly very bitter.
Sorbets: too sweet.

A place for a quick weekday lunch, maybe. But was this a menu worthy of Christmas Day, or of a £68 p.p. price tag? Not on your life. Dishes that look simple on paper can be divine with the right ingredients and execution, but in practice nothing even tasted thought-through, never mind the rest. Nothing really clicked. If I had to use one word to describe the food, it'd be "lazy".
Nobody asked how it was, not even when I declined the service charge, though that got me a me snapped at. Unprofessional.

Soft shell crab is usually a favourite of ours at Tozi. It was a little bit soggy this time. Likewise the pizettas are usually great, not so much this time - Tuscan sausage was one big lump per slice, would be better if smaller pieces spread out.

Like nearly everyone else who goes to Tozi we found it to be really very good. Delicious food from a varied menu in a buzzy atmosphere served up by very attentive and friendly table wait staff. The wine list doesn't have many under £30 / bottle but the food is good value and the experience satisfying. If you happen to be given a table with a view of the open kitchen, the free "entertainment" is a real bonus as the chefs work really hard and with passion.
