Maurilio is TOZI’s Head Chef, born in the Lake Como area, North Western Italy and has imbued the TOZI menu with flavours from his home town as well as inspiration from across Italy. Maurilio has spent 5 years running Italian restaurants in some of London’s most exclusive private member’s clubs including Shoreditch House. Whilst Maurilio’s cooking remains firmly rooted in the Northern Italian tradition, his career has seen him travel globally with positions in Amsterdam, New York and Switzerland. Maurilio has previously worked alongside Antonio Carluccio at his fine-dining Neal Street Restaurant and at Prism, within Harvey Nichols Leadenhall Street building.
Senior Restaurant & Bar Manager
Born in Sardinia, South Italy, Stefano is our much loved Senior Restaurant and Bar Manager at TOZI. Before moving to TOZI he worked for the Soho house group where he led the opening for one of London’s most exclusive members club, Shoreditch House. This is where he met Head chef Maurilio his colleague and more importantly, his friend, of the last 12 years. He has a strong passion for wines, especially Biodynamic, which is evident in the carefuly curated all-Italian wine menu at TOZI, and loves to discover new labels made by small wine producers .
'Exceeds your expectations. The young all-Italian front of house staff at Tozi are terrific: friendly and engaged without being stalkerish. Their matchstick zucchini fritti are just as good as those served by Francesco Mazzei at Radici. This is high praise.'

After stepping inside, we were transported to the heart of Italy with a large open kitchen, hanging legs of ham, prosecco on tap and other rustic touches. The stand-out dish has to be the buffalo ricotta ravioli with black truffle – we swore it might have been the nicest thing we had ever tasted.
They have nailed the casual dining ethos of the Veneto region. The emphasis on quality and seasonal ingredients is second to none, and it is certainly worth booking in. Given the central location, it’s a good spot to hit before a big night out, but better yet, it stands on it’s own two feet and is more than capable of hosting all night long; until closing any way!
