Allegedly the former house of Winston Churchill’s aunt, previously an artist’s studio and the site of Toto’s famed restaurant in the 80s and 90s , Walton House in Knightsbridge has been given a new lease of life as this week saw the opening of Italian restaurant Toto's.
Named after the legendary Italian clown, the simple but sophsticated restaurant will be serving up refined Italian dishes including saffron risotto and homemade tagliatelle with summer truffle and wild forest mushrooms.
Guests will enter into the bar which will serve an array of cicchetti including Negroni and Spritz as well as 250 wines representing all regions of Italy. Features include the original wine cellar as well as an heritage oak fireplace, an elegant staircase will lead downstairs to the main dining room which will open up on to a secret hidden courtyard garden – adorned with box hedges, lavender bushes and olive trees – we know where we will be heading as soon as there is a glimpse of sun!
Understated, refined and yet definitely Knightsbridge-esque, Toto's is sure to be at home at Walton House.
