    Have loved the Terroni on Beverly...finally tried the one On Spring and 8th...grrrrrrrreat! The only thing that was a slight problem, I had to keep asking for things...like cutlery, plates, etc. Food is outstanding, restaurant,beautifully designed.

    As much as I like Terroni, their policy of no substitutions and no additions to most of their dishes is ridiculous and simply rude. It's not like it's a Michelin Star rated restaurant, or dishes that one can find no where else in the world with the rarest of ingredients that would be ruined otherwise. If my wife asks for a penne arriabata and it's not at all spicy enough for her, how hard is it to offer your customer a side of garlic or side of red cracked pepper to the dish? Get over yourself Terroni!

    This has been a neighborhood go to for me and I've been going there regularly since they opened. I've argued with friends about how great it is and they insist they cannot stand how inflexible the service is and how mediocre the food is. I have 5 standby items here that are fabulous. All their pastas with Ragu are great, their Panna Cotta is fabulous, their Piatto Stutare a great deal and snack and their salads are good as well. The not so good: The deal breaker is their complete lack of understanding of casual dining in LA (yes, you are casual dining at a higher price point). They have an inflexible policy of making slight changes to their dishes. Even for a pregnant woman or someone who has a food restriction.

    the food is always better than many other spots serving similar fare....BUT the wine list is so great! Ask to try something you have never had and the sommelier will be sure to make you love it! Some of the appetizers are to die for...zucchini blossoms...calamari grilled...pasta always worth trying...but do not skip the ricotta fritters for dessert!

    This is one of my daughter's favorite restaurants in downtown LA, and after tonight I can see why. The food was delicious, unique and not your run of the mill standard Italian. We shared two appetizers, both very good, then we had pasta for our main course, all the dishes were fabulous! Mine was heaving with truffles (something you don't see that often). But the highlight of the night was our waitress, just so fun and friendly, definitely made our evening special. If your in downtown LA, give this place a try, it won't disappoint.

    I went a couple of weeks ago to celebrate an anniversary and I liked that we arrived (7pm) it wasn't packed. I say that because I felt like service would be quick. However, on this particular evening that was not the case as our server took forever to check up on our table of just two. I can overlook things like that Aside from that the food was excellent. I kept it simple and got the spaghetti and not having spaghetti for a long time it was perhaps the best I'd ever had.

    A good selection of appetizers and not your standard pizzas made for a tasty and filling evening. Digestion was aided by several glasses of Soave. Pizzas are large enough to be shared with another and, true to their Italian heritage, are delivered to the table uncut. It was a quiet Tuesday night and the restaurant was only a little more than half full, but it was still pretty noisy. Our server was attentive and very familiar with the menu, wine list and cocktail list. Good food, good service and a good time. We'll be back!

    I've always enjoyed Terroni on Beverly but, living in Silverlake, it's usually too far. We've gone to the downtown version several times now and it's made more special by the beautiful building and decor that feels more "upscale." The food and drinks each time have been delicious and the pastas are simply wonderful. All I our guests have been equally impressed.

    We went to this restaurant after a downtown Art Deco Walking Tour. We loved that they had the option of wines by the glass, carafe or bottle. Great selection of menu items. The Tagliotellin with Ragu was one of the bests I've had, even from Italy. My husband ordered the goat cheese eggplant pizza and didn't enjoy it as much. Not the restaurants fault but he didn't care for the taste of goat cheese. Service was quick as the weekend lunch crowd was light. Really cool atmosphere. Would love to come for dinner sometime!

    Arrived at 6:30 on a Thursday for dinner. Good time, not too busy. We were warmly greeted immediately upon arrival and the hostess arranged for a highchair for our grandson. We were seated within 2 minutes. Our server, Sean was very friendly, attentive and accommodating with our gr. son. We ordered an arugula salad. Fresh and delicious-- not overly dressed, as most restaurants tend to do. The crust on the Margarita pizza was thin and crispy. Not too much sauce, and just the right amount of cheese. The Branzino was fresh, tender and the best I've ever had. The steak (not sure of the cut) was tender, flavorful and delicious. Kim, the manager was fabulous, checking in to make sure all was well! Can't wait to go back!

    Some of the best service that i've seen in downtown LA, they almost treat you like loyalty. All the staff were this way, not just one guy. The pizza is genuine and delicious. Pasta portions are on the smaller size, but the taste is outstanding. Nice building, high ceilings, $8 valet parking right in front on spring street, $5 private lot parking or paid street parking until 8pm (free after 8pm).

    I rate my Italian restaurants based on how well the food makes me feel I could be in Italy and this one does very well. I loved the spaghetti in lemon and truffle oil. And basil! Awesome. So simple, so good. This was a first visit so I look forward to coming back. Good, wide variety on the menu. Nice, fun, restored-bank, very LA, interior space. Great addition to downtown. Nice service.

    Had a reunion with former co-workers here but found the place too noisy to have a suitable conversation across the table. The menu was great...handmade pasta dishes (a bit salty due to extensive use of olives), wonderful desserts, half carafes of house wine so our party split one red, one white. Beautiful space, hip vibe. Maybe quieter on weeknights? Parking valet, street or nearby public lots.

    It was perfect for us, as we were seeing a show at the Orpheum and needed a place that was open after 10pm. The food was good but the noise level was BEYOND LOUD. It was hard to hear yourself think or to order with the waitress. But we enjoyed ourselves and were surprised that it was one of only a few places open after the theatre lets out in the evenings.

    Food was excellent. Some reviews said that the service was terrible. This was definitely not true for us. Our waiter was very attentive without being overbearing. Only problem was the noise factor. It was so loud that we had a hard time hearing each other at a table of 4. Went there with clients from out of town, wanted to catch up so I asked to be seated at a quiet table when I made the reservations. If where we were seated was one of the quietest tables, than I pity the other diners. They must have had to shout to be herd. Even with the loud noise factor, would definitely go back for the delicious food. By the way, had pizza and yes they didn't cut it before bringing to the table, just like in Italy.....

    Food was excellent. We were as easy of customers as one could be, we knew what we wanted, we were patient when our server took our forever to come to our table, we even ordered beverage with our food. However, she was distant, not friendly, spilled our wine and with out saying a word just walked away, and put the check down as soon as we got the food. Busser said he would be back with share plates and never returned. Food was great just still quite expensive for that level of service.

    The high ceilings and open interior is inventively designed, mixing contemporary with the historic: e.g. tin ceiling vs huge graphics. I was still being surprised w/interior details after a really stunning dining experience. The foods also blended the traditional with inventive new flavors, textures, colors and aromas. From start to finish, we all were all delighted with the experience. Started with the baked oyster mushrooms - crisp complex flavors. I then split the lemon pasta, having had something like it (we thought) elsewhere. But this was another original experience, with so much deep rich flavor it was like nothing I've had. Then pizza w/smoked salmon, fresh tomatoes - wow! Our waiter's help w/Italian wine was perfect.

    Ordered the fried zucchini blossoms, which were perfectly crisp and light, the porchetta special was incredible with beautifully roasted potatoes and rapini. The porchetta's flavor was deep and the meat was roasted perfectly. We ended with an arugula salad, wonderfully dressed. The food is not the issue here, it's the snotty, eye-rolling service. Maybe they are understaffed. Who knows? They forgot to check on us for more drinks, silverware, etc. But the food, that is where it's at!
