Italian
From our home in Toronto where Terroni was founded to yours in Los Angeles, you can bank on a variety of creative Italian dishes at our dramatically appointed Downtown LA location that keeps our passion and fascination in Southern Italian fare alive and well.

Our menu is filled with regional Italian dishes that have been prepared the same way for generations. So out of respect for Italian gastronomy—and our grandparents—we don’t modify our dishes. Enjoy!

Good pasta, the deep fried eggplant was tasty, and the tagliatelle was generous. They have happy hour but was told I'd have to sit at or near the bar. Ok. Overall not bad for dinner. Had 3 bowls of pasta and two highballs for under a $100

one appetizer was grilled calamari was a little tough. The pasta dish with porcini mushrooms was not as tasty as should be. Could use a better butter and a little salt.

I have never had a bad dish at Terroni! This was the first time at the DTLA spot. Food, just as amazing as Beverly. The service, however, was significantly better! Every interaction with staff members was pleasant and helpful! We like the Beverly location but, should they be booked like they were Friday night, we will happily head back!

I had been to the Terroni in West Hollywood years ago so I was excited to see that there was a Terroni LA in downtown, especially since I had tickets for a 7pm show at the Theater at Ace Hotel on a Saturday evening. I was able to get a reservation for 6 at 5:15p.

I had the lamb ragu pasta (Capunti al Ragu d'Agnello) as did another member of the party. My husband had 3(!) appetizers: the beef carpaccio, the squash blossoms and the Verde salad. It was all quite good. Not mind-blowing a la "Bestia" or "Rossoblu" but definitely execllent italian food, at a reasonable price.

In fact, since we were in a hurry we didn't get dessert but after the show we came back to Terroni and were able to get a table for 5 and I had the warm chocolate dessert and others had the two scoops of gelato and lemon tart. It was busy but not crowded, so I would definitely eat there again if I had some event or reason to be downtown, like a visiting relative or work conference.

Not up to the 4 1/2 stars on open table!!! A lot of fuss over grandmas recipes... and I guess her cooking wasn’t all that good! One of us had the Sea Bass and it was delicious... but the pasta dishes and starters were a non event!!!

Arrogant menu. Don't ask for any changes or extras (like sauce for the Calamari, or pepper, or salt)....your taste doesn't matter here only what the chef intended is of any importance.

The food is always excellent, however, it was extremely disappointing that the kitchen was unwilling to accommodate a food allergy. We had a pork allergy at the top and the server told us the kitchen wouldn’t be willing to remove the salami from the pizza our table wanted. I understand wanting to be authentic to the original recipe, however, that is completely ridiculous when there is a food allergy, simply remove the meat and be done with it. Our table was filled with restaurant owners and none of us could understand or justify the response we received. If someone walked into our establishments with an allergy we will accommodate them even though we have allergy friendly items that wouldn’t require adjusting the recipe, if the customer wants a specific item we will do that for them. That portion of the meal was very disappointing and off putting.

This was a horrible experience. The lack of attention towards our table was very frustrating. Simple things like plates, silverware we had to ask for. I mean why are they even in business? No food in the world even if it’s the last meal would ever make me eat at this restaurant again.

The service was good, and the restaurant was really pretty. The bathroom upstairs was kind of inconvenient and there was a weird black and white movie playing that was a bit distracting from our group dinner. The pizzas were nice, a little overcooked, but the pasta were just okay. Really loved desserts!

Very good food, pleasant service. I am amused that negative reviews of this place focus on what they tell you up front: no substitutions on dishes and they don't slice their pizzas. I pity the morons who disparage this place after knowing what they were getting into in advance. Yes, I'd go back. I wish the corkage fee was lower (i.e., perhaps $15 instead of $25) but otherwise, no problem.

For a last minute idea for me and the wifes anniversary dinner. Terroni sure was a great one. Easy spot to find due to it being on the corner. Valet made it even easier to just go right in. We got to choose a nice booth. Pretty cool decor all around the place. Very spacious place. Drinks were great as expected. Very tastey appetizers. Aswell as the entrees. Even the dessert was amazing. Great service by all! Especially Allen we appreciate the hospitality! We will totally be back for more.

I was disappointed. Pricey and the food was mediocre at best. The service staff was not attentive and the place lacked quality and service that should have been commensurate with a pricey downtown place. The seating was uncomfortable and dated, tables were wobbly, and not a place I would recommend to friends.

As regulars at Terroni we are used to the food being great.......as well as the service. This day there were no familiar faces-which did in fact interrupt the experience. Took an LA resident who had never been-and she loved everything! I was disappointed that there was no service after our wine was dropped off...it was over $100 and was never poured. But-Terroni does not disappoint in the food dept!

Terroni was splendid, as it always is. Easily one of our favorite downtown Los Angeles restaurants. On this occasion, we shared a couple of pizzas--both fantastic. The wine was excellent, too, as was the espresso coffee served in delightful cups--one pink, one orange. Service was friendly and efficient. The space is still beautiful.
