A high communal table sits between the bar and dining room and offers seating for up to 10 diners. Additional walk-in seating is available on 3 high tops in the front window. Espresso leather banquets line the dining room. A more intimate back dining room can be booked for private parties of up to 18.
Inspired by the wine bars and cafes of Sicily, Rome, Seville & Madrid, wines are stored along the walls of the dining room. An original fireplace was refurbished and is lit when the weather is chilly out. Stylish lighting creates a chic atmosphere.
What Insiders Are Saying
Meet Terzo, your utility player restaurant. It's hard to go wrong at this Cow Hollow bistro.
Always good. Always fresh. Always friendly. The perfect balance of old standbys and innovative new dishes.
Service was amazing! They paced bringing out the different courses perfectly. We did not feel rushed. Food was delicious 😍
Great waiter recommending food. Food was delicious. Will be going back.
Wonderful place! Great small and large plates to share and friendly people all around!
Terzo is wonderful. Great food and service. The calamari changes how you think it should be made. Wonderful wine list of biodynamic wines. Never disappointed.
Food was amazing, service was excellent, and loved the quaint feel of the restaurant. Highly recommend!
Had a great time here! We shared the steak and pork shoulder dishes and was amazed!
We sat at the bar and our Bartender/Server Phil was AMAZING!!! Thank you Phil for an excellent night and wonderful dining experience! Chef Lisa
First time at Terzo for a birthday celebration, it was a Monday night so probably a bit quieter than usual, regardless we had a wonderful evening. Everything is great to share, we had the calamari, meatballs and gnocchi starters and then the steak. All seriously delicious. Our waiter was great, very friendly and didn't rush us. I'd go back and definitely recommend it.
Since it has been established, Terzo remains our favorite restaurant for special events, or just to share with special friends. Great food, great service, every time.
Always delicious, Terzo is one of my favorites in San Francisco. The servers are so friendly and good at what they do, the food is perfectly prepared, and it has great ambiance.
One of the places we are going to miss when we move out of SF.
Loved the food. Went twice in 3 days and the menu had many different options on the second visit. Delicious food. Great waitstaff (Nicole and Phil were amazing servers). Plan on going back the next time we are in San Fran.
An average restaurant with average food, not so special to justify the price
We ❤️ Terzo. Always.
I was there with my daughters. It was great.
Never disappoints. Always delicious with great service.
Our dinner was delicious, and had a great evening. Really enjoyed the ambiance, and our waiter was extremely nice. The food was perfect to share between the two of us (1 main dish and 2 small dishes), and they have a good wine selection. Enjoyed their Hummus, Meatballs, and Skirt Steak, with a bottle of Barbera. Definitely will be back soon!
One of the SF greats! Never misses a beat and beyond the menu, which has a lot of competition given the city, it's the people that bring you back over and over again. They have no competition when it comes to service and humanity. WE LOVE IT. And so does anyone I've brought or recommended to go to Terzo.
Everything about this dinner was great. There were a few glitches (server looked to be the only one) but overall a great time.
Ron is the best waiter and always makes being there a special occasion!
My favorite restaurant in the city! Nicest staff, always delicious!
Fabulous neighborhood gem. Food is always delicious and service is very professional.
Excellent attentive service. Interesting eclectic wine list.
We haven’t been to Terzo for awhile but when we found ourselves in the neighborhood recently — we were thrilled that we were able to make a reservation for the time we needed. The dining experience remained the same as we remembered it — 1st Class service & all our favorites were still offered — especially the skirt steak prepared & cooked to perfection!! We’ll definitely be returning but the next time will be sooner than later!!!!
I think they were short staffed - they usually do better. We’ll be back.
Such a great neighborhood restaurant, my only complaint is that the tables are a bit close together. We heard the entire conversation of the diners next to us.
Reconnecting with an old friend
Ron did great job of walking us through the menu and guiding us to some great food and beverage choices. Outstanding!
Great food, service and ambience. Also this restaurant has a wonderful and cozy neighborhood vibe.
Lovely dinner on our date night. Nicole was our server and we had her guide our selection. She was marvelous, informative and truly made our evening. Our only complaint was noisy “gaggles” at nearby tables. Other times it’s been much quieter, thus more enjoyable. Will return.
This place was great!
The atmosphere was great, it's a very cute restaurant and the food and service and wine were excellent! Our waiter was super friendly and accommodating, I woudl highly recommend this place to anyone!. My friend I took was visiting from Italy and she was super impressed!
She said the gnocchi was just like at home:)
Wonderful evening celebrating my mother’s birthday. The wait staff is always exceptional and food consistently great.
Great food, great service. Despite Terzo being open for many years, this was our first visit. We will absolutely be back.
Incredible food and exceptional service. Will definitely be back soon!
I've never been thanked by so many staff members when exiting a restaurant! I wish I had Terzo in my neighborhood. I'd have a standing reservation.
Great Valentine dinner with my husband and daughter!!
We got a small table right next to the fireplace. We shared a few small plates - the lamb kefta was out of this world. Fresh buffalo Mozerlla with Focaccia was also delicious. My favorite was the house made gnocci. Service was great - professional, friendly.
this place remains so consistent in food quality. The atmosphere is relaxing and inviting and our server was A+++
Very good food and environment. I’ll definitely come back
