Toto Italian Restaurant
Bepy Graziani di Ceneda, the owner and creator, established the first Toto Ristorante in 1981. This is the second in the original group of three and is located at the entrance to the Laguna Phuket complex. A wide variety of fare is on offer, traditional Italian dishes are served alongside tapas. The cuisine is superb and the restaurant is frequented by locals and tourists alike. The extensive menu offers food to suit most budgets. A full dinner with wine will cost THB2,000 for two, yet lunchtime snacks and a glass of cold beer come out at a about THB450. The other Toto is situated in Kamala Beach.
The only positive comment I can make is that the service was fine, probably because it was a quiet night and there weren't many patrons. For a restaurant that claims to be all about fine Italian dining my wife and I could not have been more disappointed. Having sat down and looked at the menu I commented to my wife immediately that this could be one of those Gordon Ramsay kitchen nightmare evenings. The menu had 95 items! I know that because they were numbered. I've travelled all over the world and I can tell you one thing...any restaurant that numbers the menu items and has 95 of them is not cooking fresh food and wont be a master of anything they cook. There were 5 pasta types which the patron could match up with 14 different sauces, completely ignoring the fact that long pasta is best suited to thinner sauces and short pasta to thicker sauce. My radar peaked immediately...this could not be a genuine Italian chef who is proud of what he cooks. Tis looks like a restaurant catering to tourists who may not appreciate what decent Italian cooking is all about...simple and fresh. My linguini was ok, not great, the pasta stuck together at points, so not fresh. But my main, veal with shitake mushroom and white truffle oil sauce was a complete disaster. I sent it back as I started feeling sick after 4 or 5 mouthfuls. The sauce was so oily it was disgusting. No offer to make me something new...bizarre service, and that was from the owner. We were deeply disappointed having spent USD200 on the evening, including a decent Barolo which admittedly made up half the price. We went home regretting we hadn't just dined at the Italian restaurant at the resort.
the attendant staff take your breathe away! is not possible to have 5 person standing around the table while you're having your dinner, food is ok and the presentation is ok as well but the service is very very bad
Diabolical service, completely disorganised. Nearly walked out. Five people at our table, all ordered starters and main. After one hour, one main arrived. 15 mins later, one starter arrived. 15 mins later one main arrived. Etc. Tragic.
