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!

Our service was excellent, the food was great but this place is really load. Our table for two was so close to the parties next to us that we could hear every word of their conversations and they could, of course, hear ours. The menu is all in Italian (including the wine list) with little translation so you are on your own. 🤷‍♂️ Fortunately, our waiter was a big help. Not your place for quiet intimacy, but, once you figure everything out, it’s pretty good.

Got my pre graduation dinner here with my family. Loved everything we ordered. Restaurant was very loud, made conversing slightly difficult. The “hi I am Sam Bianca” pizza is truly one of a kind. Also loved the duck prosciutto and Burrata small plate.

This was my first time dining at Terroni and I will definitely return for the grilled branzino. The fish, cooked and seasoned to perfection, was served with a generous serving of tasty vegetables

The interior is beautiful but very noisy. We all shared our dishes. The grilled sea bass was superb. The salad special was regrettable (a large pile of butter lettuce leaves with vinaigrette) The pasta specials: oxtail ragout we gave a B. The asparagus & mushroom, an A.

Just very average - a good place for a dinner where everyone can't agree or you have bland eaters in your group. Pizzas are pretty good. Cocktails are meh.

We went to Terroni before a show (Rosalía) at the Mayan Theater which is nearby. Terroni is in a great downtown location and even has a convenient parking lot across the street. The place is a beautifully redone 1920’s style bank building. We had a great table with a street view. Most seats look good. Our server Yazmin was incredible: she made the experience an even better one with her knowledge of the menu, preparation, etc. she gave us great recommendations. All ingredients from the San Danielle prosciutto to the endive we’re super high quality, each dish was perfect in taste and plating. Try the Budino for dessert-amazing! This is one of our new favorites!!

We had an early booking so the restaurant was pleasantly quiet. Food was delicious and they made an insanely GREAT capuccino for my fiancee. The pasta was a little undercooked but I think that was on purpose, and it still tasted delicious. They had fresh burratta and fresh basil on my dish, which both tasted really nice. Our server was kind, informative on the menu items, and the back servers promptly attended to us by clearing our dishes and filling our waters. The space is nicely decorated with tall ceilings and has a really neat upstairs bathroom situation that overlooks a street of DTLA. Might not be handicap accessible though. Really lovely experience. It was a great date night spot!

We were greeted by a friendly hostess and an active bar area. Our table was comfortable and the waiter was prompt and attentive throughout our meal. Zucchini flowers and a lemon/parmesan pasta to start followed by a pizza and sausage pizza...absolutely incredible food. It was a lively environment and I can see how it could be a little too noisy for some people. We’ll definitely be back again.

The people next to us were so loud I couldn’t talk to my date. And what was annoying was that the whole place had so many more opens seats, but the restaurant decided to cramp us together.

A couple of suggestions--black napkins as I ended up with lint all over me. Pre-cut the pizza. Having to struggle with cutting the pizza took the fun out of eating it. It is not easy to do with the knife provided. Also, serve two forks. We were given our salad fork back on the table top to use with main meal. Unsanitary!

Ambiance and food were wonderful. The only complaint we had was that the waiter made it clear we could not alter any of the dishes on the menu. We couldn’t even add garlic to a dish! I couldn’t add a vegetable to my pizza! If the chef becomes more accommodating then I would give this restaurant 5 stars across the board!

Fantastic date night. The wine somm, Christian, brought us the perfect wine for what we wanted. We don’t know Italian wines so it was great to have an expert at the table. Waitress was kind helpful and knew the menu well. I wish I could remember her name...long hair and lovely. Very wheelchair accessible in the dining room and bathroom. Food was fab. Very decent pisco sours to start. We’ll be back.

My friend ordered pasta with seafood and wanted some Parmesan cheese on it and it is the policy of the
restaurant to not put it on this dish. Now, I guess that is OK, but this is the US, not Italy, and people
like their cheese. The waitress was very snide about it as well.
