Food was poor compared to the Queen location. Also the ambiance of the middle room we were in was more evocative of a big chain restaurant like Jack Astors.

This restaurant is truly overrated.
Have been 3 times before but it’s not like it used to be, not even close.
Cramped seating, rude waiters, the menu description looks amazing but it’s far from it.
Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We came early for our reso, it was at 10:15pm. They sent us upstairs at that time but we still had to wait to be seated because they had no idea what was happening upstairs. The table wasn't ready and the table they sat us at was a table for 4, maybe 5 if you're small but we were a party of 6. We didn't end up sitting down until 10:30 and our server did not want to serve us. Basically telling us the kitchen closes at 11 and making us feel bad about it. Even though we got sat 15 minutes after our reso time when we also came early by 20 minutes lol we were just hungry and wanted food, we quickly ate and left. The server was telling us how they were out of everything, he didn't seem like he wanted us there as his 1 or 2 big parties just left and came off as he just wanted to get the eff out of there and finish his side duties. I come here often but I would definitely think twice before coming back now. Would have been nice for the hostess to tell us about the kitchen closing as well.

Our meal was good, however the music was cranked up so loud we could not hear each other talk. In addition, the place was completely full with the tables being very close together. Everyone may have had two vaccines, but I was not comfortable sitting so close to others

The service was efficient and our server was friendly, but honestly it was a relief to get outside and hear myself think.

I would be happy to recommend this restaurant to anyone under 45.

Terroni, regardless of location is always great. The server was great but the staff bringing out food.... not so much. They kept bringing us food that wasn’t ours and the server had to keep jumping in and directing them to the right table. There was a lot of “confusion” last night.

We have never felt so rushed out of a restaurant. From the minute we got to our table it felt like the waitress was hovering and constantly prompting us for drink, apps, and main order. Not even 5mins after we ordered our food our main was on the table. As soon as our plates looked "empty" our waitress took them away. I still had a piece of bread on mine that I was eating. From the time we walked in until the time we left was 40mins.

There was a long wait to get in. They need to come up with a faster process for checking vaccine certificates and seating people, because spending 10-15 minutes outside waiting at the lunch hour is not ok.

Meal was amazing, and our server was OUTSTANDING -- she really made the experience perfect with her great recommendations and cheerful personality.

Only very minor negative was that we were so very close to the fire place (about 1 foot away) -- those of us with our backs to the fire were very very warm.

Overall, 99% perfect!

Food was great. But there is no social distancing in here. If you come in a group of 2, you’ll be put literally 15cm from the next table over.
Very crowded. Wish ur was spaced out and more socially distanced.

One dinner not received and the 3 that got theirs were cold. Probably short staffed like most restaurants. The Waiter was great but I think overwhelmed. We will definitely go again just for the atmosphere and quality of food. To be fair we were not charged for the desserts and a nice jar of hot peppers!

We LOVED our server, but Adelaide is my last choice for Terroni locations, due to the ambiance. You really are sitting elbow to elbow with other parties. I understand that they want to serve as many people as possible, but when I can hear every word of the tables around me, it’s not enjoyable. We were also told at the door “your table is booked in 1.5 hours so you’ll need to be out by then”, which again just made us feel pretty uncomfortable. I know that reservations are probably so busy right now with everyone trying to get out to restaurants, but I am sad that the experience at Terroni is suffering. I would rather visit another location, but this one was convenient.

I have been coming for Terroni since it had one little location on Queen West. My husband and two kids (18 and 20) had never been. They all loved it as I told them they would. We had two salads, pasta for 3 of us and my husband had the branzino fish. We also split a Puzza. All very tasty. Everyone was happy. Including me and I paid for everything. The place is beautiful. Lovely old building. The staff were all extremely nice. Right from the front desk.

Long wait to even get to hostess; then they tell us we have to return the table by a certain time for the next reservation? Meanwhile they seated us late for our reservation; service was slow, so not sure why it would be our problem to turnover the table in time for them - actually it was on my mind the whole time and felt rushed; chairs were dirty; food was nothing special; tables very close together and way too many people.

The food was good but where we were seated was awful, we asked if we can be seated somewhere else and it was a no because they have a wedding upstairs, we got a two seat table, couldn’t order more food because table was so small and the basement was packed, at one point we were just right beside our next table and the server was walking in between our tables and when he had to talk to the other table, his butt was literally facing us and our food, we noticed there was another table nearby that is for four people but they didn’t want to give it to us but from when we started til we left, that four seat table was never occupied, To me that’s just poor seat planning. Also, they need to train their host and security for customer service training, no greeting, impolite. Other than that our server was nice and food was good.

One pasta dish, seafood spaghetti was inedible, the other pasta dish, fettuccine had zero flavour and was about three bites in size and cold. The Brazino was so small my petite daughter was still hungry after eating. The lattes we had after dinner were also perhaps room temperature at best. The only good dish was a pizza.

I can never complain about the food or service, however I warn anyone who is looking to spend sometime just talking over a beautiful bottle of wine to reconsider coming here on the weekend. Celebrating our 24th anniversary was staring at the clock and rushing our food and told that we can squeeze in a desert before having to leave because our time is up. I’m understanding of the fact that other reservations must be met, but experiencing it is something I do not wish to go through again.

Came here on a date from good reviews and it did not disappoint! Both the pizza and pasta we ordered were delicious!! Only felt like the seating was too crowded being wedged between two other tables. It felt uncomfortable in terms of personal space due to social distancing not being practiced, our personal belongings were touching our neighbouring tables’, and it was so loud we could not hear each other. Other than that, it was a great experience.

Thank you for your feedback and 5-star reviews of our service and food, we are pleased to hear you had a great experience! We are operating in-line with public health guidelines which may feel crowded after capacity limits. Terroni Adelaide is one of our busier locations and can be quite loud, especially as we enter the holiday season. If you are looking for a more intimate experience we recommend trying our curated Sicilian menu at La Bettola di Terroni, located nearby at 106 Victoria Street.

30 mins waiting for our table, a further 20 mins to have drinks order taken and then another 20 or so to receive drinks. Mains arrived about 90 mins after actual reservation time.

Staff were very friendly of course, just seemed very understaffed and overworked.
Food was good, place itself was a gorgeous venue!
