  • "I try and get to La Terrazza every opportunity I get. The food is always delicious and the service is just excellent. We have been many times and have never been disappointed. If you want very good, Italian food.....this is the place!"

  • "The night (a Saturday) got off to a bad start when they tried to seat us at a table (for two) that was basically a lone table stuck in the passage way between the reception and the actual restaurant. And the place was less than half full, don't know what they were thinking. We elected to wait the two (yes, two) minutes it took to set a better table. Not being big meat eaters, it was disappointing to find two of the four fish dishes were not available. The food was good though, not outstanding, but good. And the wine list is overwhelming (too extensive), yet not a lot of the BC wines we are most familiar with."

  • "This place never fails to impress. One of my favourite spots to meet clients for a business function and also for other special occasions. Wine list is actually a booklet, so much wine, too little time. Food was excellent and service, attentive and courteous."

  • "I was surprised of the foyer was still very crowded at the quite late night , it can tell the restaurant is so popular. My wife & I have enjoyed very much at the fine dishes and the romantic environment, as well as we noticed every table with one cheerful couple is full occupied in the splendid La Terrazzza !"

  • "We went to have V-Day dinner on Feb 14,2014. everything is good except I personally don't really like their dessert. both Italian cheesecake (FORMAGGIO) and TORTA DI PERA (some pears and almond tart) are too sweet,plus,prepare for at least 2hrs to dine,they serve each course within 25-30 mins in between. (not just because the V-Day)"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I often end up at new and trendy restaurants, many of high quality, but I returned to an old friend in La Terrazza and what a treat on a rainy evening! Fabulous pasta, beautiful interior, sublime Sable fish and the best cheesecake in the city... plus a seemingly endless wine selection."

  • "I came here on Valentine's day with reservation at 8:30. When we arrived there was a line up, we check in and then waited 30mins to be seated. After seated we waited 15mins for our bread, we were already starving at this time. We waited another 15mins so 30 in total before our appitizer came. By the time it got to our main entree we were already full. We dined from 8:30 to 11:30. For the price i am paying it's not worthed"

  • "Menu was set on valentines day after 9, which they didn't tell and you can't order anything else. Paying 100 bucks per person, and you can't order only for one if you're not hungry. Kinda was a rip off I stayed coz of the booking, they didn't give me a table for like 40 minutes when though I had a booking. Not worth going and paying that much. Just a feel good place to go . servers don't explain properly."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Can't say enough great things about this place. Awesome food and service. Host station was a bit hurried however the restaurant was busy dealing with the Valentine's rush. Otherwise, an outstanding experience."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This is a very, very expensive place! ... There is a notable wine list, but prices are unforgettable! ... finding a bottle of wine under $100 is a challenge, but if you are a lottery winner, you won't have any problem finding bottles between $800 and $4,300! Food is good but service is poor. Be prepared to wait a very long time! Conclusion: You'll do better with your money in another place!"

  • "We have been wanting to eat at this restaurant for ages, but were afraid of the cost of dining there. We thought we were reserving for "Dining out Vr."and booked with good friends. They are foodies & had wanted to introduce us to the restaurant For some time. We had misinterpreted their add unfortunately, and dining out had finished when we booked. The manager handled us very well once she realized our mistake and arranged a special meal for us. We agreed To all eat the same dinner to simplify things for the chef. Our meal was absolutely delicious! Beautifully served(by The manager herself). The evening will be a very pleasant memory. We haven't enjoyed. An evening of dining As much since the old William Tell days."

  • "We went for Valentine's Day. Although the food was good (not amazing), it wasn't almost $400 good. Since it was Valentine's, it was prix fixe, but dinner for two and a half bottle of Reisling + tip shouldn't come to $375."

  • "we had the dine out Vancouver menu option witch was awesome service was outstanding and we wanted for all most nothing the only gripe i had was with the wine option that was offered i would of liked to have a dessert wine or sweeter wine with my dessert there was nothing offered of such all in all thought food and service was what it should be excellent"

  • "This used to be one of my 'go to' Italian places for special events or when friends came to Vancouver. We hosted a couple from Calgary and decided this was the place to take them. Overall the experience was 'Okay', but that is not what I was looking for. The place is still great, but we (all of us) were really disappointed in our food (and hence 'value'). The pasta tasted good and was cooked very well, but the sauces were bland and under-seasoned. My wife mentioned that this is the first time in a long time that she had to ask for salt and all of us had to ask for pepper (a little surprised too that we were not offered any by the waiter). Anyways, still a nice place, but mostly due to the food, it's no longer on the list."

  • "We ate here on a Thursday night. It was our first visit. The hockey stadium is within waking distance. There must have been a game the night that we were there because there were several fans in Canucks jerseys among the guests. I started my meal with bruschetta with three different toppings and had a wonderful pasta. My companion had a delicious salad and perfectly cooked salmon. The wine list was extensive including the best of Italy and Canada."

  • "We went to La Terrazza for my husband's birthday celebration. We've been there a few times and it's great for food. We have asked for a quiet table but the table is just so-so, there were a party nearby so quite hard to have some quiet time for the two of us. When I booked table I've mentioned my husband's birthday but the restaurant has no sign of knowing it, not even a "happy birthday" greeting to my husband which was quite disappointed. Our waiter was busy, sometimes not easy to find him. Overall their service is friendly but it's a bit disappointed for the whole night. House wine is fine, and it's still our first choice for Italian Food disregard the poor service we received that night."

  • "We went to La Terrazza during Dine Out 2014. The service was great and the food was delicious. However, I thought the entree portions were on the small side (we had the duck and the lobster). It was my first time so I can't compare the portions to non-Dine Out portions, but my husband had been a few times and didn't recall leaving not satisfied in the past. Overall a good, tasty experience."

  • "The restaurant looks great. It's one of the prettiest restaurants in Vancouver. However, the service here doesn't live up to the expectations set up by the beautiful decor. We have been here several times over the past few years and always found the servers rushed and not very friendly. The duck breast is good. The other dishes are okay, but not special."

  • "This was our daughter's pick for her birthday dinner and none of the 10 guests were disappointed. From the valet to hostess, wait staff, food, ambiance..we couldn't have asked for a better evening. Our waitress Teresa was helpful, accommodating and efficient. One of those people who is so competent at her job you don't even know she's around yet everything runs smoothly and is well taken care of. We dined 'family style' with a selection of antipasti and pastas shared around the table, many of which were suggested by Teresa. Everyone chose their main entree and we were all happy. I had the cornish hen which was roasted perfectly and so big I shared with others and still had plenty. An evening to remember froms tart to finish! Thanks"

  • "A birthday celebration, there were 6 of us. Service was a bit slow, slow can be good, but this bordered on being ignored. Food was fabulous. Started with the special apply, crostini with baby mozzarella, ham topped with bruschetta, would return just for this! 5 had pastas all different, all great, 1 deboned game hen, perfection. Really nice wine list. A great night."

  • "I felt let down by the main pasta course. It wasn't as hot to the table as it should have been, and the sauce was small in volume. The Caesar was excellent and the service perfect."

  • "Listen, the whole menu (while small) is exquisite. To say the bread and garlic-shallot olive oil dip is unbelievable is an understatement. I don't even like bread and I ate five pieces. The food was fantastic."

  • "We arrange a table of 8 for a group of business associates. My first time here but others in the group had been before. A little slow getting started as our table wasn't ready and once seated took a bit to get some appies and drinks. This is to be expected on a busy Friday during the holiday season and we were happy to go with the flow. Once the appies came and we all had a drink in our hand we really started to appreciate this place. The food was very tasty, good portions and great variety to choose from. Everyone enjoyed their meals and we shared some desserts. All in all a very pleasant group experience. We would go back. Cheers"

  • "I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. The Server did not explain the food when delivered. Food was tasteless. The starter (crab ravioli) was dry. I ordered the lamb (medium rare) for my main course and it was over cooked and I left most of it untouched as it was all fat. I was looking forward to eating there but I came out very disappointed and will never go back."

  • "Second time at the restaurant. Service was prompt and courteous. Drinks were flowing thanks to our server. Appies were great and dinner was delicious. I had the lobster which you can never go wrong with. Gennaro came and introduced himself which was nice. I'd definitely go back eat drink n be happy! !!"
