Excellent food, friendly attentive staff and a great atmosphere . One of my favourite local restaurants, and obviously other people feel the same: it’s always busy at lunchtime or in the evening.Despite competition from the hundreds of restaurants in Tooting, Tota wins hands down for the quality of the food and the fantastic service it provides.

Lovely food & great service. You always get a warm welcome. Food is really good - had the slow braised lamb shoulder and it was heavenly

Fabulous atmosphere, fabulous food, fabulous staff and reasonable prices! We had first time visiting, out of towners with us who said they’d definitely return. We visit 3-4 times a month; breakfast/brunch menus are most yummy!
