About Il Toscano
A centrepiece among the many eateries crowding Station Parade along Brighton Road, Il Toscano is a proud example of the fine Italian restaurants in Sutton. Just minutes from the train station itself, Il Toscano attracts diners from across Surrey and the Greater London region, many of whom are known by veteran head chef Manuele by name. Diners also come here for the unique atmosphere. The restaurant itself boasts a stunning interior, fitted with Florentine-style wooden beams spanning the ceiling and focused on the traditional terracotta oven where superlative pizza and baked Italian dishes are given a perfect finish.

Dinner taken at Il Toscano’s Station Parade premises down Brighton Road is typically traditionally structured, with hot and cold antipasti followed by pasta and risotto, meat and fish dishes with a range of sides and breads to round things off. We’ve forgotten dessert, but trust you won’t, with classic panna cotta and tiramisu rubbing sweetly dusted shoulders with lemon and mascarpone cheesecake and a selection of Italian gelati. Our picks from this Sutton Italian restaurant’s menu would have to be the exotic mango with fresh crab and asparagus with smoked scamorza cheese wrapped in Parma ham to start; the reliably delicious risotto of the day or the spaghetti with seafood in a garlic, white wine and tomato sauce; and the roast duck breast with honey and balsamic on a bed of spinach or the skate wings in blackened butter with capers for a satisfying main course. While these are great choices from the a la carte menu, there’s so much to go on here that many diners opt for the affordable set menus and allow themselves to be guided through the Tuscan-meets-London fare on offer.
Il Toscano is also a fantastic venue for just a few drinks with friends. We do encourage you, however, to at least share some bruschetta ai pomodoro or classic prosciutto e melone when you indulge in the fine Italian wines on offer. And a wide selection of wine, and more, there is, with a list ranging from the house red and white up to the superb Brunello di Montalcino. A beloved Italian wine bar in Sutton, Il Toscano is also a great venue for a number of musicians drawn from Surrey and London’s pool of talented artists. Catch Mikey JC in the his Michael Buble guise while you dine, feisty covers band 4-Stroke, or classic chanson Aurora. There you have it – food, drink, music, and great company at one venue at Sutton’s Station Parade. Book a table for a truly Tuscan time.
Great atmosphere. Food and entertainment lovely. Staff are very nice. Had a lovely time as always. Looking forward to going back very soon. See you all soon.
Excellent food complimented with a polite and attentive service. Thoroughly enjoyable evening. Came away with a real sense of value. Our first time here, definitely not the last.
Very nice experience, food was lovely. Would definitely be comfortable back in the future . Prices was very good considering the the food sizes .
We've been going to Toscana for years. Birthdays, Anniversary or just an evening out. Absolutely love it here! The staff are always friendly and the food is always good.
Very pleasant evening. Good food, friendly staff and house red wine was good. There was music fro. 8.30 pm. The singers were very good and played a wide variety of songs. we were able to have a dance if we so wished. Would strongly recommend. The only downside was that there is no specific gluten free menu but the staff tried to accommodate my friend with her dietary needs but the food was limited for her, although what she has was very nice. Would recommend the restaurant to everyone.
Il Toscano is an authentic, traditional Italian restaurant in Sutton, serving great food and wine. Great atmosphere and excellent, friendly service. We dine there with friends a couple of evenings a month and can recommend it.
Fabulous food, amazing service. The guys made us feel special and that we were the only customers in the fully booked restaurant. The food was lovely, well cooked an soooo tasty. Really good value for money. If I have a criticism it was a little too much chocolate on the profiteroles (can you have too much chocolate???). Will certainly be returning very soon.
Such a lovely place. This restaurant has a great atmosphere - clean and well-kept; relaxed and welcoming. Beautiful food - we all had great things from the set menu: really nicely cooked and tasty. Staff are friendly and attentive without over-doing it. A thoroughly enjoyable Sunday lunch. Couldn't have wished for a better experience for a birthday celebration.
Food delicious and staff attentive as always. It is my italian of choice in Sutton. It was very quiet but that was to be expected on a Tuesday but that was good. Friday and Saturday are very busy but the atmosphere and service is still great.
Fantastic food as always . Great atmosphere. What more could you want . We have been coming here for quite a few years now and we are never disappointed . Staff are brilliant nothing is too much trouble .
This restaurant is a little gem. Cannot believe I have not been here before. Lively atmosphere, great food and cheesy music to dance to. We all had a perfect night and will definitely return for more!
Good selection to choose from, great tasting food, fantastic value for money and friendly service! Our friends were also very impressed and have already planned to introduce the restaurant to other friends .
This is always our 1st choice of restaurants when dining out. Great food, atmosphere and staff . I love that's it's not changed to a trendy place as it's adds to ambience!
Very pleasant Italian restaurant . Friendly helpful waiters . The menu is varied and should accommodate all tastes. I liked the fact that the food was servered hot and on warm plates . We will return again soon
Amazing food ! Entertainment on Friday evening is 10/10 ! You must go it's a great night out for work event, celebration or you just fancy a meal and a boogie!
Went there on Friday night, the food itself wasn't bad. More suitable for people over 55. The staff could be more attentive. We didn't really get any thank you when leaving or paying the bill, which I find quite rude as we didn't leave there only £20. We won't return so soon, would rather spend our money somewhere else.
Very nice restaurent and the food was excellent ,The first order of the food was wrong and maybe due to language but was quickly remedied so no problem
Excellent!! Lovely staff and lovely food. This restaurant has been there for many years and always is excellent. Highly recommended to anyone out for a meal in Sutton
Great food and friendly staff. A relaxing family Italian restaurant with lots of charm. Live music also helped to add to the atmosphere. Wine also helped the mood.
Lovely food and amazing atmosphere , good value for money and staff were on hand to every need that we had and great entertainment by the singers x
