Fabulous evening, I had chicken piccata, one of my favorites. My husband had the Pork Ossobuco, which was amazing.

Food was excellent as usual and service at the table was great. Unfortunately, the hostess set a fairly unpleasant tone when we arrived at 6pm for our reservation; before taking us to our table she notified us that there was another seating at 8:30 and said they needed to turn our table over before that point. This seemed unnecessary (obviously there are later seatings and we were out of there around 7:30pm anyway) and didn’t really make us feel excited about the rest of our experience there. If there’s a concern about having tables available for later seatings, that’s an issue to manage on the back end, not something customers should have to manage for you. We didn’t feel rushed by our waitress or timing of our orders at all and still left about an hour before the other seating so I’m not clear on why it felt appropriate to warn us in advance that we needed to hurry through our meal.

We come here for a lot of birthday and anniversary’s. Brough some Italian friends from out of town. We were seated 30 minutes after our reservation and had the worst service we’ve ever Had. Will come back as always but disappointed this round.

I have been a patron for longer than I care to say and never had a bad experience. The food is always good, service, music, etc. This time was almost the same. However, I’m guessing since it was Valentine’s Day and rather crowded, it wasn’t 100% their night. The roasted garlic and goat cheese, that I have probably ordered at least 10 times wasn’t fully roasted. Instead of the garlic being spreadable, it came out in whole cloves. Nothing awful, but not what I expected. The raviolis were good, the fettuccine was also good. It wasn’t the best night at Terilli’s, but I would go back again.

We sat outside and it was a lovely experience. The wait staff was attentive and responsive. It was noisy with the traffic so if you are looking for a quiet place - the patio is not it. We enjoyed the brunch - most of us had the eggs benedict either over crab cakes or English muffin. It was superb! We have another reservation in a couple of weeks....

This was an incredible dining experience. The food was fabulous, the piano set a wonderful ambiance and the service was top notch. The only issue was the lighting made it incredibly difficult to read the menu. I would definitely go back. True Italian fare made fresh.

The food is good but I wasn’t expecting my veal piccata to be breaded and topped with cheese. Much too heavy and not what I’m used to with this entree. Salad was very skimpy.
My previous trip here was much better. Very loud both times. Difficult to carry on a conversation.

Occasionally, you "stub your toe". We had a party of 6 for a parent's 84th birthday. 11am brunch. Promptly seated. Our server Nathan was great. 6 entrees ordered, 5 delivered. Of the 5 delivered, 4 were lukewarm to cold. The 6th entree showed up after about 10 minutes.

The "Italian potatoes" served with breakfast were similar to au gratin potatoes made with hash-brown potatoes. Soft, and very liquid-y. No crispness that one would anticipate with breakfast potatoes.

The restaurant compensated us with 4 complimentary desserts. 3 were great. One was just "meh."

We'll come back. Just really disappointed this time.

Went to Terilli's for my birthday with the family. We all had a great time. They have valet service, so there was no problem parking and got seated immediately. We ordered drinks, appetizers, dinner and dessert. Were in and out of the restaurant in less than two hours. Everything came out as ordered, and tasted delicious. The marinated crab claws were very tasty! The jazz duo was a nice addition to the ambiance. We will certainly be back!

Food was average for the price you pay. Service was OK - one of the people in our party got their food almost 20 minutes before the rest of us so it was cold by the time we all ate.

The waiter was wonderful. The bar and wine list was great. The special halibut fish dish left us wanting. Fish was too smoked and dry. Too much confusing flavors for a fish. Also, we requested a quiet table, received a back corner table and it was still pretty noisy.

Came here for a birthday party, and as always we had a wonderful time. Their happy hour menu is fantastic & Tuesday is 1/2 wine night with AMAZING deals on wine. Would suggest this place for a casual dining or special occasion experience.
