Terroni ADELAIDE Ratings and Reviews
Service was brutal. We were put in the “private dining room”. Felt like we were neglected the whole evening. Wrong bottle of wine presented and had to go back and get the right you. Food was good as always. But it’s too bad they were clearly overwhelmed by volume.
Good is always good but price value relationship is a bit out of balance. Had the special Tortoloni which was delicious but 6 tortoloni's for $24 Was a bit much. 5oz pours of wine starting at $14 and going north from there is a bit greedy on their part as well.
My friend & I were celebrating meeting up after about 20 years & thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Terronis. The food was delicious . We shared the baked oyster mushrooms as a starter, then the OssoBucco . W finished up with your delicious profiterols & cappuccinos. Our waitress was friendly & helpful re our choices.
We were surprised to see, as we looked around, that we were about 40+ years older than most of the diners! It was a bit hard for us to carry on a conversation as the sound level was high but we enjoyed the atmosphere & ambiance
Thank you RG
This is probably more suitable as a private note to Terronis than a review! Please pass it on.
An Italianophile, I have been a Terroni fan for years, eating in the different restaurants every time I come to Toronto, every two months. The Adelaide place is the show-case, a great space. The downside is very high noise. Tables too close together. (No wi-fi.) Servers are usually charming - an Italiana, and a Spagnola this time. The food’s not as good as it was in my opinion. (A bruschetta with JAM?) Maybe I’m not choosing well. Since I’m writing, I must say that the next day at the Bettola place, the miale ragu was tasteless. The salt mill didn’t work. The servers, Canadain this time, were nice kids, but kind of detached, as if they were really too good for this sort of thing. I asked three times for a sweetener for my espresso. I know in the service industry getting good help is an issue, but the terroni family needs to sharpen up the service act and help the food to seem less mass-produced. The places all seem to be doing well but may be doing less with me, Alas.
My partner enjoyed her main (tortelloni). My salmon was overcooked. The food was decent overall, but very reminiscent of what a chain restaurant churns out, and the meal did not seem worth the hefty bill at the end. I more took issue with a few others things, that if isolated may not have been a been a big deal, but taken together made for a poor dining experience. It was really noisy, which is fine in the right context, but when tables for two are a foot apart, it kind of kills the mood on a date or special occasion for 2. The servers were polite enough but I couldn't help but feel they were specifically trained to get people in and out rather than provide a pleasant dining experience. For example, they brought our mains while we were still eating our appetizers, and tried to take away my partner's salad before she gently let them know that we hadn't actually finished. I was almost impressed that they had us in and out in less than 50 minutes, but I was hoping for a more relaxed and enjoyable dining experience. I guess if you know what to order, have money to burn, have somewhere you need to be afterwards, and are only there for a casual/fun dinner with friends, it's a decent option.
Hadn’t been to Terroni for quite awhile. Always enjoyed dining there in the past.
Disappointed this time. The wine was overly priced. $37 and over for a half litre? $11 and over for a 5 ounce glass of wine? Very noisy. Hard to have a conversation. I ordered the Verde salad which I thought was suppose to have other things in it besides the greens and tomatoes.
Service was good.
Everything was great, just crowded - tables were super close to your neighbour! I was used to this when I lived in New York but Toronto restaurants usually give you a little more elbow room.
Overall the food was amazing and it was a great vibe - perfect service.
Booked a table for my in-laws, who were visiting from England, for their anniversary. They were very well looked after and raved about the service as well as the food.
They said the atmosphere was lively and entertaining. Can't wait to go and experience it myself.
My family and I always love going to Terroni, and it became a tradition really. Unfortunately the service that night was not up to par. Our waitress was rude and condescending, rolled her eyes at least twice, one of those times being when we asked if she could split our bill. She was cleraly not happy to be there, and made me and my family feel very uncomfortable and uneasy. I spoke to management about this which they were very apologetic and nice about it. I will definitely be going back because I know that was an anomaly, but I hope that this doesn't happen again to any other costumer.
Food was mediocre. Service was horrible. A bus boy through my friend's left overs at home and then denied it when we called him out on it. The manager was receptive to our complaints and brought out complimentary dessert and champagne, but it left me feeling disappointed with my birthday dinner. I will not be returning here.
Terroni Adelaide was excellent with our table of 8 which consisted mostly of my mom and her friends who can be picky as they have a small town pallet. Terroni is a fantastic choice for those with out of town relatives who appreciate the awesome vibe and beautiful rooms but may need a bit of encouragement to try something out of their comfort zone. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and i didn't hear any complaints :)
Our experience at Terroni was terrible. The food didn’t taste good and the service was even horrible. Our server was really rude to us. We asked her for cheese and she bluntly said NO and walked away. Overall, without getting into minor details, the entire experience was horrible. We will never go to Terroni again and I will never recommend this place to anyone. I’m so disappointed and I felt like I wasted my money.
We had a nice time here but felt a little rushed when our server tried to drop our second course before we were finished our first. I had to say we weren’t ready. I feel he should have known that. The service otherwise was good. Food was delicious and ambience great.
The venue was VERY loud and exciting (Thurs. night for us). It is NOT the place for quiet conversation. The booth seating is like 'snug' seating in Ireland -- you are right on top of the next guests, but we enjoyed that aspect and chatted with the people on either side. The food, wine, and service was very good. We had grilled calamari and different pasta entrees (one gluten free) Both delicious. Our wine was 47$ for a half litre, but it's possible to get a glass for 7$ which is rare in the city. It's an experience! I'd go back with a group next time.
Terroni is one of my all time faves in Toronto, and I was interested in the newest addition. Food was typically of excellent quality and service was very good once we were seated. Checking in to get to our table was chaotic and with a place that size they need a much more efficient system to take folks...maybe separate lines at heavy volume hours for reservation and no reservation would help. Otherwise a beautiful spot just needs a bit of work on service.
