La Bettola di Terroni
Have been coming here for 6 years. Awesome fish and pizza and vegetables to die for. Save room for dessert. Ask for Francesca or Jennie. Spectacular wine selection.
Hi RichardR, thank you so much for this wonderful review. We will be sure to share with the staff you have mentioned and our management team. We look forward to your return! Have a nice day :)
The only issue with this restaurant is that the cheapest bottle of wine is $50 per bottle....
Hi Steve, thank you for your 4-star review. Our wine list is composed of Italian wines which we import through our wine agency Cavinona. This wine list is exclusive to us, reflecting the price. We hope you consider returning to La Bettola in the future. Thank you and have a nice day!
Service was slow. Too many tables for the server so no time for her to support us. Food was decent but not worth the $. Martini was good. Wine expensive.
Hi there, thank you for you review. We will share your comments and feedback with our management team. Our prices reflect the high quality ingredients that are used in every dish. We go through great lengths to find the best ingredients, many of them coming from Italy. We hope you consider returning for your next authentic Italian meal. Have a nice day!
Amazing and authentic Italian meals, and homemade pasta. Try the Cacio e Pepe. It will take you right before to Rome/Florence. Heavenly.
Thank you anonymous for appreciating everything La Bettola has to offer and the kind words on our Cacio e Pepe. It is an all time favourite! We look forward to having you return in the future, have a nice day.
Always delivers!! Pasta was delicious
Thank you Anonymous! We hope to have you return soon for more pasta :)
The food and service are excellent. Appetizer was overpriced but the rest of the meal was a good value.
Hi JeffW, thank you for your review. Our prices are reflective of the high quality ingredients that we use in every dish. Our pasta is made fresh in house daily, our olive oil is made of 100% Coratina olives that is produced exclusively for us from Puglia, and our flour comes from the Marche region from a third-generation family run mill. We hope you to see you return in the near future, and have a nice day!
End of year celebration
The food was mediocre. The pasta lacked seasoning and the spaghetti was not cooked enough.
Food is always consistent.
We come here often for quick local meals.
Our go to’s are arancini, calama
Hi DianaP, thank you for your review, we go through great lengths to provide our guests with quality and consistency. The Arancini and Calamari are some of our guests favourites! We hope to see you again soon, have a nice day!
Homemade pasta, tasty food, great service. Honor special requests.
Will definitely be back
Thank you SylviaK, for your review. We look forward to having you return soon and wish you a Happy New Year :)
We had a last lunch before our brother returned to his family in the UK. Delicious as always, the tagliatelle was perfect and service paced just right. We weren't rushed, despite it being so close to the holidays, and were able to have a lovely chat.
Hi there, thank you for your review and appreciating wha La Bettola has to offer. We are happy to have been a part of your family lunch and hope to see you for your next family gathering! Happy New Years :)
Terrific, inventive Italian food, nice wine list and service was relaxed but food. The reason for one less star than perfect is because the night we were there, the secondi's (not pasta or pizza) were a bit limited: halibut or tuna. If you're trying to avoid gluten, you must like fish to eat there...
Hi CdnPeahen, thank you for your review we will share your comments with our chef and management team. Please know our secondi section of the menu are specials that change frequently, highlighting a fish, a meat or both. Thank you for your feedback, we are always looking for ways to grow. We wish you a Happy New Year,
Every pasta we tried was extremely salty there was at least 3 we had amongst the group. I think the best thing was the octopus appetizer it was extremely tasty the drinks were also good and the dessert
Hi JoesieN, thank you for your review and feedback. We will share your comments with our chef at La Bettola di Terroni. Please know a manager is always on duty to help with guest immediate needs and would have been happy to rectify any of your concerns. We hope to see you back at La Bettola in the future and wish you a Happy New Year.
Great service and food. The cannoli was so good I should have gotten some to go!
Thank you for this great review! The cannoli are a speciality of ours as our Sicilian chef makes them in house! We look forward to satisfying your next cannoli craving and wish you a Happy New Year!
The worst hostess you can ever meet. When my group arrived at the restaurant, the hostess did not greet or acknowledge us at all and seemed to be trying her best to ignore any customer that walked in. Our reservation was at 8pm and we arrived 20 minutes earlier and were hoping we could take the table if it was ready. This place was never hard to get a reservation, every time I try to book one there was always an available spot. And while we were walking to the restaurant, we also saw a big table that was empty which we were assuming it was ours as we were a pretty big group. I told the hostess we were early and asked kindly if we could seat in early. She gave me a straight face and the coldest response saying no, we could not come in early and the empty table we saw was for a reservation at 7:30pm. It seemed weird because usually a restaurant no longer holds a table after 10 minutes of the reservation. I also asked if we could take the table if nobody ended up coming, but she just rudely told me that there're a lot more reservations at this time and anyone that comes in right now has the priority over me to take the table. We didn't want to talk to her anymore so we just said we will come back at 8pm as we were early. When we came back at 8pm, we told the hostess that we're back for our table and she just nodded and walked away, in a even worse attitude she was holding before. Later on we found out she was actually leading us to our table, and guess what? The table she brought us to was the empty one we saw earlier. It was just very unpleasant experience, it was okay if we needed to wait for our table but with the attitude she gave us? That was just not right. I never wrote a complaint for any restaurant before but I really don't appreciate how we were treated. The food was mediocre as well so I don't think I will ever come back to this restaurant.
Attentive staff, fantastic food. Only downside is noise level if it’s a full house.
Hi KarenM, thank you for your review. We will share your comments with our management team. During the busy holiday season the location can have a more festive environment than usual. We hope you consider returning in the future and wish you a Happy New Year.
A wonderful meal. Our server was magnificent as always.
Great food and wine. It was very loud. Lokely due to the large parties.
Hi eddie, thank you for your 5-star review. We greatly appreciate your kind words on service, food and wine. As you said, during the busy holiday season the location can have more of a festive environment. We hope to see you back in the future and wish you a Happy New Year!
Great food and great wine recommendations! Everything on the menu is excellent and its a perfect place to celebrate a birthday or any other occasion.
Hi MariC, thank you for this great review and appreciating the things La Bettola has to offer. We hope to have you back soon and wish you a Happy New Year!
We had several different waiters. Restaurant was jammed. Asked for pepper mill twice before it finally game 10 minutes later. I have had better experiences there in the past. This time was disappointing,
Hi LoisS, thank you for your review we will share your comments with our management team regarding your service experience and to review steps to service with our staff. We hope you consider returning in future to experience what majority of our guests do when dining with us. Happy New Year!
Our table was available right away with a nice window spot. Service was prompt and friendly. We all enjoyed the food; from the octopus appetizer to the pastas and pizza, all four of us were very happy with our meals! The wine selection is good although a little pricey. The beer selection is limited and needs improvement. Overall, a very positive experience.
Hi there, thank you for your 5-star review and kind words on food. We will share your comments with our management team. We hope to welcome you again soon and wish you a Happy New Year.
great food, server let us move from a draft and got separate bills for group of 7. Very accomodating.
Had to shout to be heard.
Great food! A nice quiet restaurant for a night out!
Thank you ZachE, we love to read this! Happy holidays :)
Lovely place for pasta, pizza and charcuterie board.
A bit crowded. Good service with a smile from all.
Thank you for your 4-star review and feedback. We will share your comments with our management team. We hope to have you back at La Bettola soon :)
We enjoyed the Funghi Assoluti antipasti, the C't Mang pizza (with walnuts and honey), and the Orecchiette al Pesce Spada. The dishes were full of flavour and were unlike anything we'd had elsewhere. Great place to eat before a show at the Mirvish Theatre.
Wow thank you Live2EAT for this great 5-star review! We go through great lengths to provide our customers the best authentic Italian experience by using only the best ingredients. It means a lot when it is acknowledged! We hope to host you back soon, happy holidays :)
Love the warm feeling of this restaurant. And the food is always very good!
Thank you bainie, we love to hear this! Happy holidays from everyone at La Bettola :)
A Special night is always better when shared with close friends and family... and the restaurant can make or break it! We had a wonderful time and a terrific server last Wednesday! great recomendation on the wine and the food was very good! i highly recomend making a reservation and going to this outstanding Italian restaurant! Thaks for a great evening!
Thank you EastofGTA for your kind words and positive review! We will share your compliments with our staff at La Bettola as this will be much appreciated. We look forward to hosting you again in the future, and happy holidays :)
The service was amazing, everyone (except one scowling hostess) was friendly and helpful. I was a little disappointed with the vegetarian options - the only dishes I could eat were pasta with tomato/basil cause or Cacio e Pepe. The Cacio e Pepe was very good, but I was hoping for a veggie ravioli or gnocchi - something a bit more substantial.
Hi SierraB, La Bettola di Terroni, being a smaller restaurant, has a more condensed menu than the standard Terroni menu. Therefore we there are fewer vegetarian options. However we still aim to accommodate all dietary restrictions and offer something for everyone! Thanks and happy holidays :)
Everything was great except the seating.
We were sitting at a table that was in the middle of the aisle.
We asked to move but we were told that was all that was available.
Hi dave, thank you for the 4-star review and positive feedback. We will share your comments with our management team, however please know that during the holiday season we have limited table selections available to our guests. Thanks, and happy holidays :)
Excellent as always! I had the daily fish special in parchment. Simply delicious. My friend had the orechetti. Service was perfect. Love this Terroni. It’s intimate and special.
Hi April, La Bettola di Terroni is definitely a more intimate dining experience in comparison to our larger locations. We're so glad you enjoyed your experience and we hope to welcome you back in the future. Happy holidays :)
Despite some negativity on the reviews, 3 of us ate there and we couldn't disagree more. The experience was fantastic. Our server was extremely attentive, very knowledgeable with the wine list and pleasant throughout the evening. the food was excellent; fresh pasta (3 different dishes) were cooked perfectly al dente, the shrimp and calamari appetizer was "off the map" good. I will definitely return to this location next time I visit Toronto.
Hi JoeW, thank you for this amazing review and appreciating everything La Bettola has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you back next time you are in Toronto. Happy holidays!
I am on a special, but not difficult, diet, and I asked for no dressing on a salad and a side dish of balsamic vinegar. To which the server, and the Manager, both responded after asking several times "We don't do that". They offered me a side of olive oil or a side of lemon, but would not give me a side of balsamic vinegar. This is unacceptable. Any other restaurant in the city would have given me, the customer, that in a heartbeat.
I am a regular customer there and will now no longer be frequenting this establishment.
my server , was a boy , was awesome. Thank you so much .
Thank you for the 5-star review! We hope to see you back at La Bettola soon :)
Fantastic food service and atmosphere definately recommend.
Thank you JaysonF for the 5-star review on food, service and atmosphere! We look forward to having you return to La Bettola di Terorni!
They were fast and friendly. The food was delicious.
Thank you Annemarie for the 5-star review. We're happy to read you enjoyed your experience with us! We look forward to having you back in the future :)
Short story: this place is overrated. Food that is "just OK", along with poor service is not a combination for success. Add to that the fact they famously resist any attempts to personalize the dishes, makes this a place that I am glad to avoid in the future.
Hi there, thank you for your review. La Bettola di Terroni has a curated menu created by our Sicilian chef. In order to keep the integrity and authenticity of the dish we do not allow for modifications or substitutions as it would deteriorate the quality and flavours we want to present to the guest. We understand this is not for everyone, but hope you consider us for you next authentic Italian dining experience.
Good food. Excellent service. Manager went out of her way to find us a table instead of bar seats.
Will come back for sure.
Hi JohnsonY, thank your for your 5-star review. We're happy to read a manager was able to assist you to find something of your liking! We hope to see you back at La Bettola soon!
Outstanding food, service and ambience as always...thanks La B di T 😁👍
Thank you ToddK for the amazing review! We hope to see you back at La Bettola soon :)
I find the food here is better than other Terroni locations. Also, way better service!
Hi RukaiyaW, the menu at La Bettola di Terroni differs from the Terroni locations as it is curated by our Sicilian chef! Thank you for your 5-star review and we look forward to having you return in the future :)
Fantastic pasta! Both dishes we tried were outstanding.
Hi DouglasR, thank you for the fantastic review! We're so glad to read you enjoyed the food! We hope to welcome you back soon :)
Great location for pre theatre and good quality food and service
Hi AndyL, thank you for the kind review on quality of food and service. LA Bettola di Terroni is a popular pre-theatre location! We hope to see you back before your next show :)
