About Terzo

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.

Food was good. Waiter was average--not really interested. Disappointed that although I
notified the restaurant upon making the reservation that it was our 34th anniversary, there
was no acknowledgement. Watched as the waiter made special accommodations to tables
on either side because he knew the diners.

Great first time at Terzo. Planned a group dinner for a birthday and everything was fantastic. The food was perfect for sharing, the ambiance was upscale but relaxed, and service was excellent. Our table of 7 was unanimously impressed and pleased!

We really had a lovely evening! Our server was Nicolle was friendly and helpful and made it feel like a special evening for us, which it was. Each dish was interesting and delicious. Our Open Table reservation got a bit confused. I "Peggy Fulton" needed to change a time bc we couldn't get to SF in time for our original 6:30 reservation. The system wouldn't let me change it and I could not reach the restaurant via phone so I made a later (8:30) reservation under my husband (Dean) and cancelled first but I think perhaps my account froze and it looked like we were a "no show." Overall, we were really glad to find this spot via OT and would like to return and recommend to friends.

Great food, ambiance, service. Went there for my bday with 5 friends and they had great shareable plates and yummy main courses. I'd recommend the meatballs and steak with chimichurri sauce (although I think the menu changes frequently).

The moment our party of six entered we were greeted both by friendly people and wonderful aromas. We enjoyed an extended dinner, never feeling rushed even thought we exchanged gifts, had desert and coffee. The food was very tasty, the service was friendly, helpful and attentive without hovering. Terzo came highly recommended by friends. We can now pass on those recommendations.

What a great experience we had from the moment we walked in! We had the wonderful green apple bruschetta (an absolute must), the roasted winter vegetables (cooked to perfection), the steak (my husband had it and he loved it), the salmon (I loved it--super tasty veggies underneath the superbly prepared fish), and two desserts: the delicious apple crisp and the divine almond cake, which were both perfect finishes. We also ordered the crispy onions. As you can see, we ate a lot! And enjoyed every bite. As well, our server was fantastic. It was a lovely anniversary dinner experience!

Nice place with good service, but food wasn't the best. Salt was the culprit. The Fresh Fettuccine was too salty but not nearly as bad as the Crispy Chicken Breast which was so over-salted it was hard to eat. The Roasted Wild Coho Salmon was excellent though. I would probably go back but request low sodium on everything.

Terzo was so great! First of all, they accommodated a party that grew from 4 to 8. Second, service was lovely. Last, and most important, everything we had was delicious. Appetizers: hummus, grilled calamari, halloumi, meatballs (!!); large plates of skirt steak, salmon, and chicken. We shared some wine and everyone was pleasantly surprised by how inexpensive it was!
