Terroni - LA Ratings and Reviews
The dining experience was good. Good food, good location, good ambiance, good service from the wait person. The thing I can’t shake is that my associate had sunglasses on when we walked into the restaurant.. She didn’t have them when we left. She realized she had forgotten her glasses and we went back in just a couple minutes later to retrieve them but they were nowhere to be found and never turned up. I guess it’s possible they evaporated or we both just imagined she was wearing them when we walked in, but it doesn’t seem likely to me.
Don’t go here! Extremely terrible hospitality. The food was ok but the restaurant itself had terrible service. It was a special birthday for me and the server was rude to one of my guests for no reason. They asked for silverware and the server literally told her oh it’s at the other chair at a different table. My friend asked for more water and she grabbed it from the other table and set it down in front of her angrily. Bad service will ruin any good food. See the reviews on yelp if you don’t believe me..
one of our favorite spots for dining! The wine list is beyond great...and the sommelier's ability to match your preference is also beyond great...we have NEVER been disappointed...from pizza to pasta to mains...Teroni is always a 10plus!
Bravo to Robin.........David.........Edwuardo and the entire staff!
We had limited time for dinner, arrived late and needed to be at an event nearby, but the server was great at getting us our fantastic food quickly without us feeling rushed. Loved the Sea Bass, my husband said the prosciutto was some of the best he had ever had (and we sell prosciutto and have eaten a lot of it) and our daughters loved their homemade pasta. It is a big loud space, a little louder than I like because I feel like I have to shout to be heard. But I'd go again in a heartbeat. Great food, good diverse menu and the service was excellent.
Overall I wasn't as happy with the experience. Our waiter was very rude, maybe it was the fact we didn't exactly dress to empress or he was bothered by our general questions of the menu. The restaurant was not busy but asking for help was like pulling teeth and anything we had inquired about seemed to annoy our waiter. Food was ok, wasn't as good as I hoped for... i am finding like many places in downtown, it's more about the atmosphere then the service and food.
Dressed for the occasion, me and my friend were not greeted at the door by either of the two hosts. No "Happy New Year's, or Welcome." That was one of many red flags that were raised throughout the night. We were seated by a window and given our menus. I didn't see any Italian beer (Peroni) or any ravioli, but was presented with two pages of pizzas. Not the menu I expected, but I'll roll with it. We ordered calamari for starters and a few drinks. The appetizer was perfectly crispy and cooked, however extremely salty. I asked Jessica if the dish was supposed to be extra salty and she said "Yes, but I can order you a new one less salty or take it off your bill." I opted for the latter, since I didn't want to ruin my appetite for the main, and didn't want to take home calamari (because it gets chewy as leftovers). Sipping our drinks, we observed the clientele and decor. The customers were extremely casually dressed, especially for New Year's eve service, (not unless you wanna end your year with a bang dressed in a slouchy sweater and daisy dukes, as was sitting at the table next to us), and decor that couldn't decide which direction to go, There was a beautiful mid century post modern chandelier in one corner and a rather large red steel ribbon in the main room that acted as a lighting fixture, but fails miserably. Finally our food arrived to no fanfare, no excitement from the server. Bon Apetit, (I guess), the food was sub par for $30 average per plate. I though the food would make up for the lack of courtesy and service. We were asked if we needed another round of drinks, and I declined, since no one cares about customer service and friendliness here, (except for the lovely, beautifully dressed hostess that directed me to an upstairs washroom). Our service seemed to go further downhill as we kindly asked for cracked pepper as Jessica returned and slammed the pepper grinder on our table. She sealed the deal. We paid, with disgust and left.
We moved from DTLA a year ago.....we miss Terroni!!!!! Everything was fantastic and our friends really enjoyed the food and the ambiance. Please open a restaurant in Pasadena. Nothing compares to your casual, yet impressive atmosphere . BTW, the LA Times says many stars are moving to Pasadena....maybe that will convince the owners to consider a restaurant and cheese store in our neighborhood.
The server was curt, took his time delivery drinks, focused on tables with four or more, asked how the food was half way into the meal, and also took his time delivering the check. If I were sat in this server's section again, I would request another server or leave. The food was very good, it's unfortunate the experience was ruined by the server.
We made a reservation for 7:15 but came early and ended up eating at the bar. Stephanie was our bartender/server, and she made our evening very enjoyable. Not only was she approachable and attentive, but she was also very knowledgeable about the drinks and foo. Her recommendations were spot on. Thanks Stephanie for making our first dining experience a fabulous one. We look forward to dining at the bar again.
Great service and awesome pizza. Fair price. This is in a less busy section of downtown, so we actually parked at a meter in front. There is also valet and a pay lot across the street. Restaurant is in a really cool old art deco building. 20 ft tall ornate ceiling. Gorgeous. Molten lava cake dessert was the best I've had. We somehow ended up leaving as a show was getting out at the Microsoft theater. That was a disaster. Watch your timing.
Pasta seemed under cooked, asked for extra sauce on pasta and was told “we don’t do that here”, overall not great service and it wasn’t that busy so not sure why. Been to Terroni in West LA many times and always had great food and service. Maybe it’s this location or an off day.
