The service at this restaurant was very poor. We booked a reservation for 7:30 and didn’t end up getting seated until 7:55. Whilst waiting the staff was rude and unhelpful, making the service unenjoyable and hard to recommend. The food was average at best, the burrata salad was quite bland and the pasta was too oily. Dessert was the only tolerable part of this meal. Go to this place if you want to be disappointed.

I was very underwhelmed by Terroni. I had been dying to go for ages based on other reviews I had read/heard. My best friend and I had dinner on Sunday afternoon, the food we were served was bland - not bad, but nothing I would remember. We had Mozzarella and Tomatoes to start, and split the Ricotta Tortellini and Margherita Pizza - pretty standard stuff. The mozzarella, as mozzarella is, was bland. The tomatoes were warm, and not dressed in anything other than basil and OVOO. My friend asked for Balsamic Vinegar to add to the dish; I can understand if a chef is touchy about someone "changing" their dish but our server blatantly said that the Mozzarella is an expensive product, and balsamic vinegar is cheap so we can't have any. I don't know if my friend was more offended that she was told by someone that her tastes were cheap, or that as an Italian she was being told that she couldn't add balsamic vinegar to a dish she has grown up eating that way. Eventually, we were brought a salt mill that didn't work. Service was slow and I had to watch every awkward exchange between my friend and our server after starting dinner off on the wrong foot. Finally, dinner was expensive. We had 2 bellini's each, so I understand that may have driven up the price however our dinner cost us over $100 in total, before tip. So while not a horrible experience, the food was not enough to bring me back, and I'm not going to risk putting a friend of mine through a rough dinner service again.

EXCELLENT. no other words needed. i cant believe how impressed I was with how delicious the food is. I've been to terroni many times, but never to the original Queen location. I would definitely say this one tops all of them.

Order is:

1. Terroni - Queen
2. Terroni - Summerhill at Price
3. Terroni - Adelaide

Choice of music not the best.
Happy you added vegan options but could add more. Two more pasta and two more pizza options wouldn’t hurt.
And another vegan appetizer

Some of the dishes were nice but others were nothing special. Service was quick and efficient but not friendly, in fact one of our guests wondered if the waiter “ was angry about something” . Convenient location, loud and energetic environment.

We had a good night at Terroni. I thought the food and wine were very nice and a very large selection of both (maybe too large). I found our server to be abrasive and full of attitude. We asked for a margarita and we quickly came back at me with a hard NO. This type of service is unacceptable in my opinion. Your customer does want to hear NO but offering an alternative could have gone a lot further.

Not sure if this was a one off or whether there is a downward trend here. We are long time customers that have always consider the Queen Street location one of are favs. Caprese salad left alot to be desired and roggatini with zucchini tomatoes and mozzarella was a big disappointment. A few slices of zuch, cold moz and undercooked pasta. Too loud, too warm, too many flies.
Perhaps we will try the Rosdale location next time.

Outdoor patio ambiance is unreal - you genuinely feel like you could be dining al fresco somewhere in Italy. Food is fresh, authentic, and quality products. And the in-house made pasta is fantastic. Server was super helpful in picking a wine choice that was reasonably priced.

You can never go wrong with Terroni. We grabbed their special, gnocchi 😍 best part was that it helped share a meal with a youth in need through Mealshare! Incredible service, even shared a sweet complimentary gelato with us to wrap up the night.

Terroni is a Toronto landmark, started by Vince, Cosmo and others. I was a regular at the original Terroni
when it got started.
Their energy and enthusiasm back then was contagious, they had a love for people, you could
see it.

I love terroni but I would have given a higher score if the patio had been open on the hot, beautiful day we were there. It was closed due to the threat of rain...it didnt rain all day! I understand they cant predict the weather, but to close it it due to a small chance of rain was very disappointing.

Booked for anniversary, was really looking forward to checking it out as reviews were decent. Food was just ok, very bland and quite tasteless. Much better Italian restaurants in the city. Pretty gutted as this is very close to where I live and was hoping it could become my local!
