Food was great, but service lacked. We waited at every stage of our meal, in fact dinner showed up before drinks, that were ordered 1/2 hour earlier. The most disappointing was I was holding a client lunch. I have always had good experiences at any Terroni, however they dropped the ball on this one.
Very good traditional Italian fare brought to you by nice and helpful staff. The wine list is bit thin, as many wines on the list are not available.
I really like the ambiance of this restaurant, and the food is quite good. Unfortunately we had to wait 45 minutes before a server (or anyone) came to our table... water followed and finally food started to arrive at a good pace after that.
It was a great meal!! A little disappointed with how close together the tables were. Felt a little too close to both our neighbours. But the food was good and quick! We were asked if we wanted bread, said yes, and then it never came. Which isn’t a make or break but something to note.
Usually have a great time at Terroni, however service was below average this visit. Our table wasn’t ready on time and we weren’t served bread. Overall disappointed!
Food and service are top notch! The ambiance is warm and friendly, like enjoying time at a close family member or friend's house!
We were visiting from the states and our waitress from brunch recommended Terroni for Italian food. So glad we were able to get a reservation here! Some of the best Italian food I’ve ever had. The food was delicious, authentic, and fresh!
Amazing food and service!!!
Bar none the best restaurant architecture, experience and mood in the City. Couple it with the amazing food, and it can't be beat!
our table had people walking back and forth on both sides, my elbow kept getting bumped by people .. too cramped to relax and enjoy, would not go back
First time here with my girlfriend and it was a great experience. I really appreciate the host holding our table a bit longer than expected. Food had great presentation and flavour. Decently priced for a new fancy date night :)
While Terroni used to be a great night out in Toronto, things have changed! Tables are very tight, I felt like I was eating with my neighbours on both sides. While the salads were magnificent, the rest of the meal fell very flat. Our pizza was tasteless! When we asked for more cheese, by way of grated Parmesan, one of the servers told us that they will not change what they serve. I’ve heard that in years past but what happened to the customer should be satisfied? We were also very disappointed with the tiramisu. It was tasteless and light character. We went to this restaurant because we had tickets to the theatre and after we ordered dessert our waiter disappeared. We had asked for two cappuccinos when we ordered dessert. When they didn’t come, and we have finished our dessert, we just asked that they don’t bother bringing them. We had to scramble to get our bill in order to make our play. I was very disappointed and will not go back. Toronto has lots of great places to have a good pizza, Terroni needs to step it up!
Would have preferred to be seated on. The main floor not on the third floor (and all stairs!)
Excellent service and food. We are regular customers and never disappointed
Reservation was made for 5. Started off pleasantly after placing our order we only received one app and had to wait for the other app. Then 75 mins go by before we receive our entree and during that entire time we were not checked on. When they finally did make their way to our table they asked if we wanted dessert😂. If they did their job and ensured the tables were looked after that would have never happened. After our food is rushed out and some of the noodles in my bolognese were still hard and not cooked all the way through.
Before we left the manager comes and asks how our evening was and if we wanted dessert or coffee. What makes you think I want to put any more money into your establishment for a horrible experience. Said he would take care of the bill so I was ready to leave when he comes back to the table with a bill and only an app being comp’d.
Won’t be going back and highly recommend you go somewhere else too.
Terroni was great! The food was absolutely delicious, my seafood pasta was TO DIE for, pasta was cooked al dente, and there was a ton of seafood in there. Really good quality. Boyfriend had the steak, he said it was good, but the potatoes needed a little more flavour but overall amazing. Such a fun spot for a date. Perfect cross between Fancy and still casual. Simple drinks are super expensive which is the only unfortunate thing — for a whiskey glass sized gin and tonic, $15 is just too much. I can look past that, just a very minor inconvenience. But otherwise, I’d highly recommend this restaurant.
Great Valentines Dinner.
We were seated in the wine cellar section. I must say it is total experience. Our server was outstanding! Food was quick and delicious. Would highly recommend. Thanks for making our valentine’s dinner so great!
The atmosphere was very nicely designed with the exception of how crammed it was, but being in there financial district I wouldn’t except anything less. The value was really lacking as due to portion size. $200 for 5 people and we all left hungry. Of course presentation is nice but At the end of the day I’m there to eat not stare at a plate. I would recommend to someone looking for that kind of restaurant but I have other choices I’d usually prefer
Great food, service was professional and quick! Definitely recommend.
Loved it great service
Too loud and diners are stuffed in like sardines. I felt like I was having dinner with the couples on either side of me.
This review is purely on the pricing of the food. Otherwise, our servers was great. And what I ordered was great. We came with a toddler as we had been told this place was ‘family friendly’. After dining here, I would have to disagree. They were able to stow our stroller in a room which was nice, but it was just somewhere to get it out of the way. I’m not sure where they would have put another one if another family came.
Ambiance is loud so it is good with kids due to the fact that no one can hear them if they’re being loud or crying.
We were told we could do a kids pasta which essentially was penne with butter and cheese - and I thought, ‘oh perfect’. However, the penne was al dente, which may be fine for an adult, not for a 2 year old who then thought his pasta was ‘too hard’. I felt the penne was too hard even for my liking.
When the bill came, and I was charged $15 for the ‘kids pasta’ $15!!! For literally a bit of penne + butter + cheese. If I had known, I would have ordered a regular pasta and just picked out all the toppings for myself and let my son have the plain pasta and sauce. Not worth it.
The service was slow, had to ask for a coke three times before the server brought it to us and then she spilled them all over the guest next to me as well as on my coat and pants - no real apology and she laughed about the coke being everywhere. The pizza arrived not cut and they did not offer and pizza cutter - said the knives are sharp so use them - I took a client to the resto and was very disappointed.
Had dinner at Terroni with a group of colleagues (8 people). The food and wine was great and very reasonably priced.
There were a few issues with service but the server and the restaurant MORE than helped us out.
Food is always reliably good...server was excellent (sommelier was a bit of a pill, but I've told you that before)... acoustics make the place generally noisy, so I guess that's why it's so popular with younger people... it's my stand in when La Bettola isn't open...
Pretty good meal. Tasty food. Meatball apps were tasty but cool temperature wise. Fried calamari was good but needed some spice. Sausage meals (Incl the one w truffle and spicy sausage) were a hit although you have to like yr pasta quite al dente. One person in our party had the tagliatelle bolognese and didn’t love the sauce (not very tomato based). Excellent service! Great waitress and timely attention to our food and drink needs.
Hi there, thank you for your review and for mention you experienced excellent service. We will address your food comments with our chef and management team. We hope to have you return again in the future, have a nice day!
This was my first time here but the rest of my table had enjoyed Terroni on previous occasions. As a vegetarian, I was pleasantly surprised to see not only several options on the menu but also our server told me that anything on the menu could be modified to remove the meat! Everything was delicious and freshly made in house. I will definitely be coming back.
Wonderful wonderful wonderful!! Great food, service and ambiance.
The service was superb and food terrific. We were there for a visit with a friend from out of town and it was a great opportunity and excellent setting
The service was amazing! Carly was an absolute sweetheart and very helpful. The food was also on point 👌🏼
Thank you for this great review! We will share your service comments with Carley as this will put a smile on her face! We hope to have you return again soon. Have a nice day :)
It was my friend's 50th Birthday celebration, had an awesome time. The server was amazing and friendly.
Keep up the good work.
It’s always a successful night out at Terroni’s. Food is fantastic (all their pizzas and especially the duck ravioli). Great service!
Hi there, thank you so much for this great 5-star review on food and service! We hope to see you back at Terroni on Adelaide in the near future :)
Great service! Disappointed with the food. Our expectations were higher than what was given. Pasta was bland and the pizza was nothing special... not for the value you pay!
We had lunch, a time which is always difficult for staff as 90% of patrons need to be in and out in an hour. On that front, the restaurant was very well organized for sufficient, timely and attentive service. My only complaint would be that we had to ask for fresh ground pepper for each of our salad and our pasta courses.
Hi there, thank you for your great review, we recognize that time is an important factor for our corporate clients. Please know salt and pepper are always available upon request. Thanks and have a nice day!
Great foods and service. Very noisy room
Hi BenjaminC, thank you for your review. Terroni on Adelaide is a multi-level location and when at capacity it can have quite the festive environment. If you are looking for something more intimate, try our sister restaurant, a close walk away, La Bettola di Terroni. We hope to see you back soon!
It was lovely as always! The food was amazing.
Thank you for your kind words! We will share your comments with our team. We hope to have you back at Terroni again soon :)
Very friendly staff. Quick service. Great food
Thank you for your 5-star review on service and food! We hope to welcome you back again soon :)
First time going to this location and it was amazing!! The ambiance is wonderful! Our server was so kind and honest. She was professional but had spunk. I would go back in a heart beat. We were also seated on the third floor which was very cool and romantic!
Hi there, thank you for this wonderful 5-star review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your first time with us and will share your comments with our management team! The third floor, Il Covo, is a very cool space where we host our aperitivo every Wednesday with live music! We look forward to having you return :)
