Mediterranean
Terzo (which means third in Italian) offers a daily changing menu of about 15 small plates and 5 large plates. Its “pan-Mediterranean” fare changes based on local ingredients. The wine list offers over 80 options of European and Californian wines chosen to pair with the food.

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.

I thought small plate portions were too small for price. For example 3 scallops for $16. Overall still a very nice place.

Called another restaurant midway through the meal, packed the reminder of the food and left. $32.00 what flank steak? Don't remember, but I chewed and chewed, removing one bite after another.

Very engaging waiter. I should have asked his opinion on best menu items.

Service and ambiance was great. However the prawn appetizer was a little fishy and my pork tenderloin was dry. The spatzel that came with the pork were dry also. The meatball appetizer with the polenta was tasty. Don’t know if I’d go back but it’s a darling place.

What a wonderful neighborhood gem in Cow Hollow. This atmosphere is good. We went on a weeknight and it was packed. From the salad to the entree was outstanding. We ordered three appetizers. Roasted mixed vegetables, cauliflower soup , and chicken Spiedini. All were good especially the veggies and chicken selections. The arugula salad was fantastic and highly recommended. For the entrees we ordered pork shoulder and skirt steak. Oh my gosh, these entrees were outstanding. There were moist and juicy. The flavors were amazing. It was even tasty the next day as a leftovers. So happy to find this neighborhood gem. This will be my new go to spot for a great and solid meal.

Food was great per usual but had the most awful and inappropriate server who kept touching my friends shoulder, never checked on us and then threw the check (and pen) back in our faces and told us to leave him more gratuity. He was disgusting and should be fired immediately. I have since cancelled the reservation I had with this restaurant for next weekend and will find somewhere else to dine. I am genuinely very disappointed as I have loved Terzo for years.

Went for restaurant week. The menu looked great and I love Mediterranean food. The snapper in papillote was bland. Took 15 min just to get water and another 20 to get a waiter.

My husband and I went to Terzo for the first time for SF Restaurant Week. They were offering a 3 course meal with wine pairings for $65. We really enjoyed the food and were very pleased with the wine pairings, but were most impressed by the service. We had a lovely, friendly server who went out of her way to make our evening a night to remember. Highly recommend Terzo!

Excellent wine & excellent food. This place has a neighborhood feel and it is not over crowded, like some other restaurants. I'd definitely go back. We loved everything that we ordered.

The most favorites place in Sf! No place combines this level of food with this level of skilled and warm service. It’s reliably inventive without veering into competitive fussiness. It’s like a true ensemble - the team works together in a way that any organization would envy. My only wish is that they would get the fireplace going every once in awhile. It’s the BEST!!!

Overall a wonderful,relaxing dining experience. The little plates were outstanding. Next time we will order more than 3 and that will be our meal! That being said our entrees were excellent with the exception of the linguini which was salty.
