In the heart of Brompton, Toto's is beloved of both locals and visitors to the area alike.

The menu, full of Italian delights – we’re not talking the old production line favourites but truly authentic regional cuisine – is beautifully presented and every dish garners rave reviews from diners. Leave room for tiramisu if you can help yourself.
