The restaurant was too crowded to be comfortable. We sat between a railway and a walkway to an upper section. Servers had a hard time accessing their tables and as a result gave very poor/slow service. We were offered bread that never came. As my wine glass sat empty, a second glass was not offered so I asked for one... Our second round never came either. So we asked for the bill and left. Food was delicious... Too bad service and ambiance (terribly loud.. Too loud for a date/conversation) was sub par. Disappointed to say the least for our 8th wedding anniversary dinner.

this is good restaurant, but not average rather than exceptional. I highly recommend that you DROP you no balsamic vinegar with oil and bread policy. i know how i like my food and do not appreciate paying $200 for an evening to be treated like a child.

I’m shocked at the fantastic reviews Terroni gets. This restaurant markets themselves as “high end” and “an experience” to a fault. They will not modify a meal for those with allergies, which is ludicrous in today’s society. If you know how to cook and use fresh ingredients as you state , you should be able to modify any meal if you are “high end”. Our waitress literally threw my friend (on her birthday) a gluten free and dairy free menu, telling her “see if anything works from these otherwise I have nothing”. Um. My friend simply asked for a meal that was topped with Parmesan, to simply not be topped with Parmesan so she wouldn’t get hives. The waitress could have framed “the experience” differently, helping my friend find options rather then throwing a menu at her. And how hard is it to NOT TOP WITH PARMESEAN. I ordered some olives and wine (delicious) and basic spaghetti, looking for that home made pasta with home made sauce that ‘soothes your soul’ meal in the winter. What I got was east side Mario quality pasta that tasted like shellfish, like they didn’t clean the pan. Unedible. I actually thought the sauce may have been rancid. The waitress never asked how the food was even though I ate two bites, and then picked up my plate and handed me the bill. With little Italy and all the other Italian options in this city, I can’t believe this place is such a hit. I guess people read the reviews, think it will be great, and have some self fulfilling prophecy moment that it actually is good when they go. If you want wine and olives, great, go to Terroni. If you want real Italian food that is edible, served by people who care about food and their patrons, go somewhere else. This place is definitely not the hype people make it out to be, and you will be disappointed.

Fabulous find for northern Italian food on Queen Street West. There is a lot of energy in this restaurant so if you are looking for somewhere quite and subdued this is not the place. We had the Tagliere Mezzo e Mezzo (cheeses and house cured meats) with a side of olives. Noticed an appetizer special for the day - olives that were breaded, deep fried & filled with veal and pork. They were divine and so nicely presented in a folder paper box. Our group had three different pastas - Cavatelli al Sugo D'Agnello, Tonnarelli alla Norcina & Pappardelle alla Iosa which were all delicious. For dessert make sure you have their butterscotch pudding and the molten lava cake with the white chocolate ganache. Would have a really tough time if I lived in this neighborhood - I would stop in daily and sit at the counter for dinner or lunch. Can't wait to go back in the summer to enjoy their patio.

Unnecessarily over pretentious, for not being a 5 Star restaurant. they are not flexible of not presenting grated cheese to anything with seafood. I had seafood rissoto, and even though, being in an Italian family, I know its a faux paus for Italians to add cheese to seafood, they abosolutely refused my request, were pretentious and rude.

I was there celebrating my Daughter's and my Sister-in-Laws birthday, and server Oliver, just made the whole experience very uncomfortable and awkard with the back and forth, no cheese comments.

They do not have cinnamon at all for Latte. Linda the Manager also stated that Italians do not use cinnamon with lattes. Will never go back to any Terroni, and will let my family and friends know about their service.

With my seafood risotto left over (see photo), I added grated cheese at home! Delicious!

Everything was fantastic as always. The only thing I wasn’t happy with was that I ordered a 2nd bottle of wine for the table and instead of bringing the bottle to me (a woman) to do the first taste, the server brought it to a man at the table instead. This rubbed me the wrong way.

Appetizers and mains were delish, we started with olives and bread, then had grilled calamari (a little too fishy tasting). Then we had the spaghetti di mare and cavatelli with lamb and both were really good. For dessert we had the fried nutella pastries which were heavenly and the tiramisu which was mediocre at best, it was really just a pot of mascarpone.

Everything was exquisite, from the service (friendly and super attentive) to the food (we exclaimed over everything - SO delicious). We don't know Italian wines very well, so they brought over a wine expert who chose, based on our tastes, a lovely wine that everyone liked. Great ambience, although by the time we left (at 8:30pm) the bigger groups were a bit loud for us, we had dessert but did not feel like lingering over coffee. We had two family members from the US who were very impressed, both birthday people were very happy - excellent night out. A lovely and festive place for a special occasion. Our go-to place.

I love Terroni, but the noise level is really challenging when you are trying to have a conversation. But the food is amazing, so is the decor and the atmosphere. The patio on queen street is my favourite place in the city!
