Entering the restaurant there is an Italian chic feel with serious design flair vibes. From the polished concrete floors to the high industrial ceiling, the room is scattered with dark sleek wood and drenched in light from full length glass.
The winter menu offers your favourite pasta and pizza along with specials, including slow-cooked beef brisket with broccoli three ways.

But be quick, the team at Tocco's enjoy sharing flavours and introducing new tastes – from delicate ravioli to robust ragu. You may go one week to find your favourite dish has been replaced with your very next favourite dish.
Over a sparkling water or a wine from the extensive list, you can begin to explore the menu. Don't expect lashings of pasta swimming in sauce at Tocco. That's not how things are done here. The reasonably priced plates are to be shared, started with oven-baked pizza dripping in oil and rich cheese, enjoyed with salads and of course followed by Dolci.
The sweet treats are tempting with everyone's favourite tiramisu proving an excellent choice, however, my bite-sized pillow of lemon cream pastry was a perfect accompaniment to an afternoon espresso.
Tiramisu...to die for!
