Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I came here for the first time. Our server Luigi was amazing, friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. He appeared to be the only person working in the entire restaurant but handled it like a pro!!! The wine list was full of choices at various price levels. The food choices were also varied. I had fresh spinach ravioli in a tomato cream sauce and mu husband had chicken. Both tasted fresh. our starter of the antipasti plate was wonderful. Everything about our experience was positive and we would recommend this to anyone!! Thank you Luigi!!!"

  • "I took family to a special dinner at La Terrazza. Exceptional service and food selection. The cost was comparable to other good restaurants in a big city. Our ages ranged from 4 years to 78 years of age and everyone found great meals! Well done!"

  • "Fantastic food accomparnied by wonderful service. High-end dining in an Italian style, but not distinctly Italian cuisine. The servers are friendly, polite, and extremely knowledgeable. The food is superb, as is any one of the wines."

  • "Could not have had a better experience at this place. From the decor and great location, to the superb and attentive service - everything was perfect. The waiter was kind and recommended a good wine to start our meal. We were out on a date and I think he noticed that we wanted to spend some time enjoying a good meal so was very attentive without rushing us at all. We got a round of appetizers - the Salumi and Bruschetta. Both were fantastic - the Salumi was a good find as it definitely reminded me of a nice Italian meal. After some time enjoying appies and drinking wine, we moved into a good pasta dinner (we both ordered the bolognese). It was a refreshing change from the more commercial places like Italian Kitchen. Highly recommend"

  • "The food was excellent. The pasta was awesome. We all really enjoyed it. Desert (Apple Tart) was also excellent. My wife, a apple tart lover, enjoyed it very much. Service can improve (it was adequate). Would recommend to friends."

  • "We go to La Terrazza a lot as it's in a convenient location. This time, it was a table of four with my mom, step-dad, my husband, and myself. We had a male server and he was pretty attentive. I'm a gluten-free vegetarian and our server made sure that all the items ordered met my dietary requirements. I was a little taken aback by a female server that served us bread when my mom asked her if there is gluten-free bread available. The server responded, "we don't have things like that here." Later, when we went to the washroom the same server rudely brushed her way past us without stopping to let us down the hallway. Albeit the rude server, the food and the ambience was good. "

  • "The duck was delicious. My wife's pasta was very good as well. The only thing is that I wish they have more choices in the salad section. All in all, it was very enjoyable dining experience."

  • "The food was not very tasty and presentation was not very nice. The wait staff (all male) appear to more interested in the table of two ladies sitting alone, instead of the my table of 10. In fact I observed 3 of the waiters making commets about the "hot chicks". I wondered why they were not very busy for a Saturday night as other than our table, there were only a few other small tables there. We were there from 6:30 - 9:45 PM. I did see a well dressed man walking around (appeared to be a manager) however, I did not see him interact with any of the customers. I did reccomend this place as all the other guests were from out of town. I choose this place as I have driven by many times and I decided to check it out. I will not return"

  • "Really great night our server was awesome, asked about wine preferences & asked how much we wanted to pay which I liked great selection too for us , food was well paced & really full of flavour I recalled liked that we got to have 3 courses no rush for us leave at the end of the night either we will be back this was our 5th time here "

  • "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."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "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 !"

  • "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"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "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."

  • "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)"

  • "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 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 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."

  • "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 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."

  • "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."
