We had a visiting Californian scholar here for a week who was working with our graduate students. The faculty wanted to take him someplace with a good atmosphere, good food and good service. We often take visitors to Terroni because it is always a good place to take visitors and a person can hold a conversation during dinner. I would recommend Terroni to anyone.

I’ve always enjoyed Terroni’s food. The bread is to die for! And, the pizza is not you run-of-the-mill pizza, great choices!

The Nicoise was wildly delicious to my taste.

The Noise level was wild but in the way I needed to go out. Saying this I am 73 but my 15 year old niece had even more difficulty with the sound.

Went on a Monday evening. Place was packed which seemed to be promising. Got seated and felt like I was at a Christmas company party. Seatings were way to close and had to yell to speak to my wife. Service was good but prices were extremely high for the amount of food you get. Great example was the calamari to start, very small portion for $18 not sure it’s worth it. Pastas were good but server did not offer anything else for our pasta like cheese etc. Overall I would give it a 2.5 out of 5.

Hi there, thank you for your review. The holiday season is our busiest time of year, and like you correctly pointed out there are a number of holiday parties. A manager is on duty to assist our customers with any concerns that need to be addressed, and avoid you feeling the way you did. Our prices are reflected in the high quality ingredients that are used in every dish. We will be sharing your comments with our Chef and General Manager and hope you consider returning in the future.

Special occasion for old friends to catch up after months. Got a nice window table . Excellent sommelier. Wish I took a photo of the wine label. He steered us towards it as it was only $60/ bottle (cab .sauvignon called S..... from Piedmonte? ) yet more full-bodied than the $80. dolcetto we usually order. Can someone email me the name pls.? Our server was excellent! Casual friendly clean & good food. Perfect night! Thanks Terroni staff!

This was the first time my experience at Terroni was underwhelming. Food (the special)had to be returned (though very grateful to the incredibly gracious server who helped us) as it was clear that it was being batch-made and re-heated (the top was burnt), service was a bit erratic and seating was inconvenient (right in the middle of a walkway).
