Victoria might not be top on your list of areas in London to head to eat. But with Venetian restaurant Tozi just minutes from the underground station, it should be.
After stepping inside, we were transported to the heart of Italy with a large open kitchen, hanging legs of ham, prosecco on tap and other rustic touches.
We started with a selection of delicious handmade breads before taking in a (huge!) selection of cicchetti, small Venetian plates. The head chef is is Maurilio Molteni, who was previously at the helm of private member’s club Shoreditch House.
Several glasses of Prosecco in, we set about sampling eight beautifully crafted mini-dishes. Each was incredibly tasty – the soft-shell crab and bresaola were sure winners – and definitely Instagram-worthy.
But the stand-out dish has to be the buffalo ricotta ravioli with black truffle – we swore it might have been the nicest thing we had ever tasted.
Tozi is a must-try. Our top tip? Arrive hungry.
