There's a focus on the food of Veneto at this Italian restaurant and bar in Victoria, with cicchetti playing a lead role. The food is complemented by an all-Italian wine list, Venetian aperitivi and classic Italian cocktails. 

Large plates such as lobster linguine or char-grilled whole wild sea bass do feature, but it's mostly about the small plates here. Expect dishes such as bruschetta with squash, dried tomatoes and goat's cheese, pizzettas, lamb sweetbreads with salsa verde and soft shell crab with red chilli and parsley sauce. Charcuterie boards and pasta dishes prove popular, too.

That all-Italian wine list takes in regions beyond Veneto, with Lombardy, Sardinia, Tuscany, Umbria and Piemonte all represented. Cocktails range from espresso martinis and margaritas to a Venetian shrub (Hendrick's gin, lime juice and own-made berry shrub) and a celery cure (Finlandia vodka, own-made celery syrup, lemon juice and celery). Italian craft beer also features.

Cozy atmosphere, friendly staff and delicious Italian food- this resto is definitely worth a stop if you find yourself nearby Victoria station.

Following the advice of my friendly waiter, I decided to try an off the menu smooth gin based cocktail with a hint of cherry. I was not disappointed. To make the most of your experience, it’s best to order a selection of small dishes to share. Think buttery, creamy burrata that melts in your mouth, topped with fresh and juicy tomatoes, along with avocado, radish and baby gem salad. There is also a wide election of main to choose from. You can’t really go wrong with the roast hake, gratinated scallops or baby chicken. Looking for a sweet finishing touch to your dining experience? The meringata, yoghurt and amarene dessert offers an intriguing, tasty and somewhat unusual experience for your palate. 

Whether you’re looking for a nice spot for an after-work dinner or a place to dine with a bigger group (the resto caters for dinner parties and can tailor a menu to the group)- Tozi is a great choice. 


One gets the sense on entering this restaurant, that the food and service will be good.  Very well furnished and slightly formal environment, the waiters explain the Venetian influence of the food and how to order.  We had the small plates to share, as advised, and the food indeed was delicious - as were the glasses of wine we chose.  Not the cheapest eating option in the area but a good standard and we enjoyed an unhurried and agreeable lunch.

We now have many restaurants and cafes to delight us in Pimlico..but Tozi is the place to which I return time and time again; the combination of superb food and the warmest friendliest staff imaginable makes this my home away from home.

Real authentic italian food. Also one of the only places in London that you can have a real aperitivo. reasonably priced and very good wine list. I especially reccomend going during truffle season and trying their specialty truffle risotto, it's not always on but when it is, it's great.

The quality of the food is great. I would definitely go back again.


Lovely place, delicious flavourfull plates and excellent service. I feel like I will become their regular customer.

I would have gone... but they cancelled my reservation without telling me!

Their pathetic, insulting reason was that they were offered a booking for 100 people. They didn't even have the decency to let me know. Had I not called up to confirm the reservation my 9 guests and I would only have found out when we showed up at the restaurant.

I don't care how good the food or service is, if they're going to treat potential customers this badly they don't deserve to be in business.
