Emilia Romagna is a region regarded worldwide as one of Italy’s greatest gastronomic treasures, and at Torside you can experience a little piece of it for yourself. The idea of three friends who decided that London was missing out on the culinary delights of their native region, Totide is the place to go for authentic cuisine from Emilia Romagna, whether it's the famous lasagne or some lesser-known Italian specialities. You’ll find Tide on Chelverton Road in Putney – book a table and head on over!
In Emilia Romagna dialect, Totide means ‘every day’, and at this stylish restaurant you can sample cuisine from the Italian region meant for all sorts of everyday occasions and with sleek black walls and rustic wooden decor, Totide provides a chic backdrop for a romantic date, sophisticated lunch or special evening out in London’s Putney area. Begin with the bocconcini di gnocco fritto con prosciutto di parma 22 mesi DOP (a small special fried bread with parma ham twenty two months aged) before trying some authentic Emilia Romagna lasagne, some homemade pasta like the tortellini vecchia modena (pasta filled with spinach and ricotta cheese served with vecchia Modena sauce smoked bacon, cream and drops of traditional Balsamic vinegar of Modena) or a mouthwatering meat dish like the sliced ribeye steak with rocket and parmesan cheese.
The traditional Italian tiramisu or panna cotta is the perfect way to conclude your meal, while wine enthusiasts will be more than delighted with the lengthy yet carefully handpicked list of wines from the Emilia Romagna region. Situated on Chelverton Road, Totide draws in diners from all over London to its Putney location. To guarantee its a table, making a reservation in advance is advised.
Absolutely love the food, the atmosphere and of course the owners. Really a great night. They never rush you. Fantastic wine! Cannot recommend it more.
Totide is a very pleasing restaurant, with excellent food, friendly staff & a relaxed atmosphere. We had a lovely, leisurely Saturday lunch & I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
What a pleasant surprise. Very tasty and interesting food in very comfortable surroundings. Location by Putney Bus garage belies this restaurants genuine aspirations - quite a bargain to boot.
Best lasagna this side of Bologna and amazing wine list! Always lovely, friendly service and delicious - a must for London foodies and wine lovers!
Second time eating at Totide & am very impressed with the quality of food & wine - it is one of the best Italian restaurants I have eaten at in London & this new restaurant has a successful future ahead!
The food was delicious: I had the Parma ham followed by steak, my wife had melon followed by chicken. All of which was delicious. I have never before or since seen such a generous starter platter as the ham which almost needed a second plate (I ordered bread to accompany). The steak cooked in balsamic was deliciously unusual and juicier for the vinegar. Wine was great (we had a white Sangiovese) and staff could not have been friendlier and more helpful, despite the restaurant being completely full. Will definitely be back.
Excellent food! Fresh ingredients, authentic taste. They have a great variety of wines at great prices. The atmosphere is cozy and inviting. Very enjoyable Italian meal! We have made Totide a regular stop for dinner out.
Excellent evening; the first time I had been to Totide with this particular friend. She liked it too! I shall go again as soon as I can.
Absolutely amazing food and service. Have been twice now and loved it both times, it doesn't look anything special from the outside but it really is well worth a visit. It's definitely the best restaurant in Putney and we will be back very soon :)
I visited Totide with my family. Great tasting food, good wine list and really good service but I found that the portions were somewhat small.
