Simply one of the best Italian restaurants in Dallas. They are known for their generous Martini's!
You need to start with their signature Italchos.....which are handmade pizza chips topped with sauce, cheese and you pick from over a dozen toppings. Yummy ceasar salad. Amazing pasta selection with many unique sauces. Nice selection of reasonably priced Italian reds!

We went for a very small birthday celebration at brunch. All of the staff were interested in making us comfortable and relaxed. We went during a Cowboy game and found it to be quiet, laid back and the piano added a nice touch. We had not been in several years but the Italchos were again excellent as was everything on the brunch menu. There were five adults and a baby and we all thoroughly enjoyed the meal and ambiance.

Waited for a bit at door for someone to seat us. Food was not great. House wine was average. Service was ok. Our rolls were hard. Just not worth the price.

Great brunch menu and we started with the specialty, Italchos. Crabcake eggs Benedict was excellent. Chicken and waffles looked great. We had a great time.

Came to Terrill’s for our 23rd Anniversary. We’ve been coming here since our first date in 1987. Never disappoints. Service is impeccable. Food it outstanding. It’s a must go to if you’ve never been.

The appetizers were very good, however we were disappointed in the entree. We dined at 5pm and the kitchen didn’t prepare the a popular meat dish and the manager stated it happens all the time, which seemed like an excuse. Also the chicken is mesquite grilled with that Smokey flavor and not just grilled chicken. The menu should state that.

We were celebrating my 66th birthday. Several at the table had the vegetable lasagna which was delicious. Two of us had the chicken masala and it was disappointing. Terilli’s has much better choices than that on the menu.

We all had the lobster bisque as well. It was silky and very flavorful! We all had salad and ordered the walnut dressing. Anyone who has not tried it should do so as it is a great salad dressing! Only Terilli’s has it!

The staff surprised me with a huge slice of chocolate that was scrumptious. We all shared it and couldn’t finish it as it was so rich!

The service was excellent, staff is friendly and attentive. Restaurant is beautiful and classy.

We will go again but it will have to be for lunch. We are vegan and compromised our diet because they had no vegan choices on the dinner menu. At lunch they have a build your own pasta which can be vegan and it’s delicious! Terilli’s marinara sauce is very flavorful!

Everything was great. We unfortunately made reservations for the busiest time and had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated. The bar was full so we had to awkwardly stand. It was packed but once we were sat everything went smooth. We did have to ask for bread but that’s not that big a deal. It’s always great here. Small inconveniences mean nothing here :)

The ambience was ok. Noise level was very high. So much so that we had to yell at people in our table to have a conversation. They dropped the ball with reservation and we have a more than half hour wait time to have our table ready, even with a reservation confirmed. We had to stand, squeeze and keep moving since there no really wait area. The food was very good and our waitress did a good job too.

I was searching for an Italian restaurant with vegan choices on the menu and found Terelli’s. I was familiar with the Terelli’s in Frisco and heard the one on Greenville burned down. I was not aware it was rebuilt!
The make your own pasta was not on the dinner menu but there were no vegan choices on the dinner menu. The chef allowed us to order the make your own which we thoroughly enjoyed!
We met with an old friend who said Terelli’s had the best Italian in the metroplex! I agree.
I was a little disappointed with the walnut salad dressing. It was not the same as I remembered. I think it used to have dill.

Terilli’s is our favorite restaurant. My sister who lives in Australia was visiting and we took her here for dinner. She loved the place. She thought the Italchos were a unique item and thought they were outstanding. This is the go to place when you need to impress your visitors.

I’ve been dining at Terilli’s for decades and am never disappointed. The food is delicious and they have a fun and tasty cocktail menu. We went last Saturday night with our sons and their wives, some of who were going for the first time, and everyone was impressed. We started with yummy Italchos and crab claws followed by several of the various pasta dishes. It was such a fun evening! The entire family is ready to return next time everyone is in town.

The Fettuccine Alfredo with shrimp was really good. I topped it off with the raspberry cheesecake which was amazing. The low marks are for the crab cakes. They were over cooked and tasted more like a salad than crab cake. Plus I paid $23 for it even though the quality doesn’t match the price.

Father's Day dinner was great (as always). Terilli's is like the long lost father you never knew and when you discover he's alive and a multimillionaire you realize he's the best dad ever because he makes the best Grilled Chicken With Penne ever and he's a freakin' millionaire!

Love Terilli's, that's why I picked it to celebrate my birthday.
Tonight we were placed in a back booth that was so dark, none of us could read the menus. Gabriel was a wonderful waiter, but I felt we were step children put in a back corner to be ignored.
Italchos are always great. The shrimp scampi, chicken and veal piccata were great.
I ordered the penne with grilled chicken. Unfortunately, I also ordered it with the spicy garlic oil. I can normally handle spicy, but it did not taste or sit very well. No one else had a problem, but I won't be ordering the spicy garlic oil again.

The meals and & Ambiance were perfect as always. We had 4 parties, 2 in each, asking for 2 separate bills....all was done to each wrong party, what a mess.
A pouring rain storm began just as several people were leaving....could not believe no umbrellas were offered or available for assistance, at all, in getting into our cars which were impossible to get to when brought around....it was every man/woman for himself!
