Anyone who frequents the number 4 bus route between York city centre and the university campus will have noticed Toto's Italian restaurant at some point. For me, it was back in first year, a whole two years ago. From the outside it looks quaint but quirky, and certainly characterful, and my inner foodie was instantly attracted. Finally, last night, I fulfilled the ambition of going.
We were seated immediately and ordered our drinks, although eventually had to grab the waiter's attention to place our food orders.
|The returned Creme Brulee|
Moving onto dessert, I ordered the tiramisu, which was disappointingly flavourless. My mum ordered the creme brulee, which she ended up returning because it was too cold to eat. After the waiter agreed to warm it up for her, he then returned to say that he couldn't, due to health and safety reasons.

Conclusion: A great ambience and setting, and delicious main course, but the desserts were disappointing (an understatement), and the service was slow.
