Pretty cold chilly patio. Leaves from trees kept falling onto our food. They need more patio heaters and more umbrellas. Food was good but probably will dine indoors next time.

I have been a customer of Terroni on Queen since it opened and I have many fabulous pre-pandemic memories. I understand that the pandemic has been devastating for restaurants, and that any criticism is not welcome. So I anticipate pushback on my comments.

1. We had to enter and exit the patio through a very tight passageway through the kitchen because we were told that the restaurant is being renovated. It was impossible to social distance passing the servers lined up waiting for their orders while guests passed them in order to be seated. The management has to address this immediately as it is not acceptable.

2. The patio is still lovely and our server was very good.

This was our first time at Terroni and we and our friends enjoyed our evening a great deal. The food was excellent with the exception of underdone butternut squash. We reported it to the server who thanked us for the feedback. As the evening progressed the noise level became a problem but would not keep us from going again.

Great Food and Service. Maia did an excellent job making our lunch at Terroni an enjoyable one. Her knowledge, pleasant personality, and professional manner were appreciated. Terroni is one restaurant that never disappoints. Thanks also for having such great chefs who prepare wonderful dishes.

The wine by the glass is very expensive for what you get.
They refuse to cut the pizzas so I had to cut it for a friend with bad arthritis
And since they allow absolutely no substitutions you have to pick off anything you don’t like. The pizza is ok but not great. However, the pastas and salads are really good.
BUT in spite of their arrogance, the fabulous patio is a summer “must do” for me.

There was construction outside so it was quite noisy. Service wasn’t great. At a point we were being rushed to leave because they needed the table but when we were leaving, there was no line up or anything.

I ordered a funghi salad, the mushrooms were deep fried not sautéed, so I assume they were old and the arugula was tired. The service was fair but it was clear that having a business lunch and talking was not really possible the servers pushed our table to order and it was obvious that as soon as we finished eating they wanted us out.

I have been a regular at Queen W. since it opened when it was a sliver of a restaurant. I am still a regular and cannot express how much I still love everything about this location. The staff are terrific and the food remains super excellent, always !! And Veronica is the best with wine suggestions.

I checked in at the front so they could verify my reservation. I was meeting a friend and arrived a few minutes early so I would be there for her. When she came in they told her I hadn’t arrived yet and she waited outside for 10 minutes. Not good.

Definitely, not what Terroni Queen use to be. Our drinks felt a bit light, the main was not what we were use too. Overall I felt there was a subtle cheapening of the overall meal and experience.

Thank you for your review. Please know the quality of our ingredients have not changed. We are disappointed you feel this way and ask for your patience during this time as there is a staff shortage in our industry. Please know a manager is always on duty to assist guests with immediate needs to correct any concerns while you are present in the restaurant and avoid you leaving feeling unsatisfied. We are really doing the best that we can during a very difficult time in hospitality.
