    Server was atrocious - either poorly trained or immature. Our guests waited over 10 minutes to be approached for their beverage choice - never returned to refill. Reservation at 4 and only table for 15 minutes! Beans and Greens' description needs to add "soup" because everything was floating in broth, including crostini. Calamari excellent. This was our "go to" place for special occasions - not Pescara. Very disappointed.

    Excellent service. Portions are too large. Consider offering a regular and second, smaller (Senior) (For the small appetite) portion at a different price point. Waitstaff graciously offered to box leftovers, with a carrying sack. Most appreciated.

    We have visited Terza many times over the past six years and we’re looking forward to a pleasant anniversary dinner. We sat at table 71 and were overwhelmed by the noise and hyperactivity. The worst part was the truly poor service. Our water glasses were never refilled, the “hot” bread was cold by the time the server finally brought us butter after three requests, the server presented the dessert menu while we were still very early in eating our dinner, the server presented our bill with zero comment or thanks for visiting and the busser scared my wife removing dishes while we we standing up to leave. Our total dining time was 62 minutes during which we had chicken parm and a bottle of Merlot… we were not lingering at all. It was a terrible dining event and one we will not revisit. Very very disappointing experience in Rochester.

    Very , very nice restaurant. We were seated (just 2 of us) next to a large group that was very loud. We asked to be moved and they graciously did so. The waitstaff, the food, the choices were all wonderful. Steak and Gnocchi are 2 of our favorites at Terza! We sat at their comfortable bar for happy hour, then moved to our table. We ordered a bottle of wine with dinner and did not finish it and they wrapped it so that we could take it with us. Terrific service! Can’t wait to go again!!

    Pretty good date night spot. The atmosphere was very good, but the food was just ok. I expect more when I order a $52 steak. The value wasn't there money-wise, but the value was there for experience.

    Went here for a date night. Good was great, price was actually less than I expected (granted we didn't have drinks), environment was great, service was also excellent. We were on the fence between this and another well known Italian restaurant nearby. My date admitted it was a good choice and better than the other place. Overall I was very happy we found this place and would definitely go back.

    Made reservations here with my mother for her Birthday. Food was amazing. However, the service could have been a lot better. We do not eat fast, and we were over half way done with our meal before the server came and asked if everything was okay. Also, I was ready for another glass of wine and it was over 20 minutes before it arrived. My mother and I still enjoyed our time and our food. But the service turned what could have been a great experience into an okay one.

    We are new to the area and Terza is likely to become a favorite destination. We enjoyed the variety on the menu, the atmosphere, and the service. The special Christmas-themed cocktail was delicious. We look forward to trying a dessert on our next visit.

    This was the best pasta I’ve ever eaten. It was the perfect plate of food and our server gave us such amazing recommendations. The plates are customizable (if you don’t like red sauce or typically gravitate towards lighter dishes, they offer substitutions to make your meal something that you love)! So delicious and such a warm and cozy atmosphere. 10/10!

    It was very busy and they seemed understaffed. We waited at the bar for a drink for 10 minutes and were never served so we thought we’d get served faster at our table. Our drinks didn’t arrive until after our appetizer. Food was great. Server was doing his best. Bar was way too slow.
