I and my spouse visited this place recently to try their degustation menu. The overall impression: outstanding! Everything was right - food, service, live music, wine list, location and price (we used a discount coupon, which made it even better). After living for last three years in Vietnam with its great French cuisine, we looked at Italian places somewhat down... More

Dined for dinner. Good food. Staff very friendly and efficient. Surrounding very dim lit mainly by candles. Close inspection revealed perhaps why. I think Toto is in dire need of a makeover!

I've been here twice in the last year and was amazed by the change. The first time I went it was very very fine dining, if you were in a suit you were probably still underdressed. The food was amazing, the service was great and the opera was exceptional. The second time I went it was very different, a more... More

We came here on a special degustation deal. The staff and atmosphere were superb. This place looks almost seedy from the outside but is charming inside. Even at 6pm this place was buzzing. Being degustation we had no control over the menu which is always fun. The bread and oils were superb. All course were interesting, refined and tasty. The... More

The service was faultless - attentive but not overbearing (pet hate of mine) ! And then there was the opera ! Well what a treat... More

On our first trip to Auckland, we happened upon Toto rather serendipitously, but couldn't have been more pleased. The other reviews praise the service and the attentiveness of both staff and Mike the manager, and I echo that sentiment. The food was amazing. We started by splitting the carpaccio (yum) and the bread plate, followed by the duck ravioli for... More

We are so happy we ended up going to Toto' on our trip to Auckland! When we arrived we were taken to the bar to have a drink before we were seated. Once seated we go one of the best bottle of red we have ever had. The food was delicious, the service great and to top it all off... More

We are delighted we booked ahead; a couple in front of us had not and no tables could be found. Those who think Italian food is lasagne will have their eyes opened. My tuna tartar was exquisite and my companion's duck ravioli earned high praise as well. Staff took excellent care of us and we enjoyed the spacious and elegant... More
