    They served us a green salad that was only fit for compost. I was very disappointed that it made it to our table. Most of our dishes were good, although one pasta dish was so-so.

    I live in the neighborhood and have been going to Terroni's for years. I love it, and recently planned a family dinner at Terroni's with a number of my cousins and their children. Unfortunately, our waitress was NOT child friendly. For example, when asking for butter for the bread, she replied "we don't provide butter for the table". Fair enough, but a little flexibility would have been appreciated, given that they obviously have butter in the kitchen. She repetitively declined a number of other, minor requests from our table, and made us feel like we were inconveniencing her by dining there. I will definitely not be planning another family dinner at Terroni's, and will think twice before making my next reservation.

    This was a dissapointing visit. I used to go quite a bit but avoid it now as I react badly to cow's dairy and they don't like adjusting menu items. Went for a lunch with family and the service was very dissapointing. She seemed to have very little suggestions for what I could eat and unenthousiastically presented two things. I respect the art of the dishes, but I am sure I had more options than what she offered and I was dissapointed in the meal itself. We also had issues at the table as it started to rain and the server seemed to not believe this when we asked to be moved. We are not a demanding bunch and were made to feel like it. Food still good, but with almost no options for me and service like this, I will likely not return.

    Terroni is a neighbourhood go-to restaurant. Very kid-friendly, the patio is fantastic, the service is fast and friendly. The food is excellent but you pay for it - over the years the prices have gone up and the portions have gotten smaller. Still love it but we go less frequently now.

    The patio has a very nice atmosphere with greenery all around and when the sun went down, the strings of lights hung up around the patio gave it a very quaint and romantic feel. Food was great, service was great! I've never been offered three different types (tap, spring, or sparkling) when I simply asked for water! And because we were having a difficult time figuring out which kind of wine we wanted, the waitress even called over a wine "specialist" to help us figure out a good wine! We got to taste a couple of wines before we ordered too which was nice. We ended up staying for almost three and a half hours without being bothered by staff (especially because the place was packed)! Overall, great night and I would definitely go back!

    The patio at Terroni on Queen is simply magical, evoking images of travels abroad, great times and delicious food. The ambience is authentic, eclectic and welcoming...and without bring too noisy. It conjures the best of Toronto in the summer. I've been to this Terroni quite a few times and found the food this time in particular, outstanding.great taste surprises. The zucchini blossoms stuffed with ricotta were excellent. I eat out a great deal, and this reminded me of what a great and memorable occasion that dining out can be. It is a great gathering place for good friends.

    I have been to this location many times but always gone for dinner. My kids love the simple pizza and pasta. Recently I went for lunch with a girl friend who works in the area. We both ordered the grilled sea bass under the special menu. It was so good, totally melt in your mouth! We shared a dessert which was to die for....some kind of deep fried sugar coated donut with nutella filling.

    After being seated in the back courtyard which was pretty full it took a while to be given menus, take drink orders and an age to come back and take our food order which was disappointing given how many staff they seemed to have. The food was pretty good italian fare. The pizza i had wasn't the best i had had locally which was a shame. The other diners enjoyed their pasta dishes Service sped up after they sent out the appetizers. Overall pretty good meal

    My party and I had been sitting down for about 60 seconds when we were asked for our food order. And this was the theme for the rest of the meal - rush you out the door. Plates were cleared before everyone at the table was finished eating, dessert menus were presented while one person was still eating their main course, drinks were cleared before they were finished and we were stared at by a number of servers as we took our time paying our bill. Will never go back. The total time for dinner - 70 minutes.

    The waiter was kind of rude when he WAS waiting on us. The ambience is a little cluttered, so really only ideal for couples dating. The menu and the alcohol choices are a little strange for Italian. Really remiss of them in particular not to carry Nastro Azuro Peroni. The hostess is super friendly and great though. Pro tip- request to not be seated near the bathrooms as you will get bumped by passers by.

    We chose Terroni for our anniversary dinner for a couple of reasons: it's one of the few places in the city that stocks Franciacorta (which, if you've never tried, is the equal of most champagnes costing three times the price). The terrace is great in summer (as long as it's not raining). Beware though, it's kid-friendly, so if you think children and restaurants don't mix you should probably avoid. The wine list is always interesting and it covers red and white Italians equally well. My wife found her pasta rather blah, but I enjoyed my secondi and dolci. We will definitely be coming back.

    Certain members of my party were interested in having some balsamic vinegar alongside the olive oil for the bread. But the waitress informed us that we weren't able too because of the owners special olive oil. Which we all thought was weird to impose such a rule when it was asked for. I understand not offering it regularly but it should be provided if asked for. The waitress was very attentive and knowledgable. The fried calamari were spectacular, definitely will be recommended to others.

    My husband enjoyed a great dinner on the patio last Thursday night. The ambiance was great and the service was good. The only thing that I would say is lacking is your wine menu. I know that Terroni is an Italian restaurant and understand the idea of having only Italian wines. I just feel that other choices would be great! (California!!!)

    Terroni is one of the best pizza/ S. Italian restaurants in the city-period. The food is consistently amazing, and the value is good. The service is generally excellent. My only gripe with it is the wine is far too expensive. I generally just skip ordering any. I simply fail to understand why Terroni cannot include an inexpensive 'house wine' (as Viva Napoli on Mt. Pleasant does). This would greatly enhance the dining experience at this restaurant.

    We were out for a special ocassion. Made a reservation ahead of time and all was done handled professionally. Even though we mentioned that it was for a birthday, we were placed close to the washrooms. While we thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere, food and service, we could have done without the hint of washrooms' scents coming from down the hallway... And the waitress made no special ocassion out of the birthday! If you want to eat at Terroni on Queen, make sure they do not sit you towards the back, so the smells seeping from the hallway will not mix with the great food and drinks to be enjoyed.
