Grandson and his wife were in town and we had brunch. We all loved every menu item(seared tuna salad, samosas, corn ribs, potatoes, breakfast frittata). View was great and deserts topped off meal nicely(key lime pie, cheesecake). Service was great-warm, friendly, knowledgeable.

Overlooking North McAllen, TOLOA's rooftop space acts as a studio for creating social experiences around food and drink.

The food offered focuses on Modern Mexican eatery and is designed to either be shared, provide a small bite, or be ordered as a multi-course dinner. TOLOA is a new way to indulge and be social.

It’s a beautiful and unique restaurant/bar. The staff and service was a 10 out of 10. The menu is small but everything we tried was delicious and the cocktails were amazing. The dining ambiance was relaxing and intimate. I loved it!

We love our dinner. The service was great! A little slow to get the check. And the music was very loud. But would still go back!

Food was perfect. I was hosting a group of friends who had never dined there. They were extremely pleased. Our waiter was attentive. He was knowledgeable about the menu and made great suggestions about the menu and drinks. Could not have asked for a better experience.

Valentine’s Dinner was fantastic!! Their preset menu provided great value and the food was delicious. Dessert was one of a kind both in presentation and mix of flavors. James, our server for the evening was excellent and took the time to explain all the items on the menu. His recommendations were on pointe. THANKS IL FORNO for a wonderful evening.

This restaurant has quickly become my absolute favorite in the area! My birthday celebration here was simply divine, thanks in no small part to Christina, who went above and beyond to make my experience truly memorable. I'm incredibly grateful for encountering such exceptional service. I wholeheartedly endorse this establishment as the premier dining destination in the RGV. If you're seeking out-of-this-world culinary creations served in an opulent setting, look no further. Every dish exudes quality and freshness, leaving me not only satisfied but also feeling rejuvenated. And let's talk about their fresh squeezed lemonade—it's simply unparalleled, a true testament to their commitment to excellence.
