Great service and food quality. A little on the expensive side for a Rochester restaurant though.

The ambiance, service and food was excellent. Our meal came super fast and was very tasty. The prices were a bit high for pasta, but we really liked the place and will plan to come back!

We wee promptly led to our table by a courteous lady. The waiter came by a few minutes later and he was just marvelous. He helped us with our vegetarian menu; in fact he suggested a custom order and it was just delicious. The wine was very good, the ambience just perfect. We had a wonderful evening after a long wait for the pandemic to subside. Terza is where we will go for our next outing. A truly five-star experience.

At the request of a dear family couple friend who is local to the area for a few years & after visiting Pescara were told to go here next, so that is exactly what we did. So picture it a warm quiet evening in the heart of downtown Rochester we go in & get seated nicely in the front corner & our waiter walks over introduces himself & we all laugh - it is our wonderful waiter Corey from Chester's across the street! It was like a mini family reunion. Instantly the mood shifted & everyone stared at us because we were laughing & joking. Corey remembered our drink orders & our meal restrictions diet changes recommended the favorites & had everything pre planned out in his head as we mulled over the menu & needed the appropriate changes. The ambiance was dim & comforting. The food was exceptional (changes included). Everything was spot on. We definitely recommend Terza & Corey!!!!!

It started with incredible service, truly the staff seemed to be going out of their way to make sure that we were taken care of and that we had a good experience. The drinks came quickly as did our food. Despite seeming to fly to our table after ordering it the food tasted incredible and begged for more of it. Very much looking forward to going back.

The food was incredibly delicious, well worth the price. Best meatballs we’ve ever had. Ordered a pizza to take home for lunch the next day as well and it was highly underrated for only $10!! Tiramisu is my favorite dessert of all time and my taste buds were impressed. Highly recommend this restaurant to any and all.

We recommend making a reservation even if it's 30 minutes for you want to eat. It assures you getting in immediately once you arrive. Everyone at the restaurant is truly lovely, pleasant and treat the customers with great respect. Food was also outstanding! We will come back next time we visit Rochester!

Amazing Italian food. Smaller portions than Victoria’s, but incredible quality and flavor. We tried a variety of dishes, many with the chef’s pasta made in house. The service was impeccable. The manager visited the table. Staff were very aware of the necessity for safe dining in these COVID-19 times.

We dined at Terza as a party of four. Two in our party shared the Fettuccine Chicken Alfredo, one had the Terza Classic Lasagna and I had the Tagliatelle Wild Mushroom. We were all extremely satisfied with our meals. We also had Roasted Cauliflower to share and a couple of us shared the Chocolate Almond Tortino.

The food exceeding my expectations. We had dined at Terza’s before so we knew the food was good but my husband had the scallops and I had the Parmesan crusted walleye and they were both fantastic. The server was also very knowledgeable and attentive.

Food was as delicious as always and service was excellent. I felt reassured that the restaurant took pandemic precautions seriously (tables were spaced apart, staff was always wearing masks, etc). This was the first time I’ve eaten out at a restaurant since February 2020 so I was a little nervous, but it turned out to be a very enjoyable experience.

Delicious pasta! We had dinner at Terza two nights this week, one of our favorite restaurants in Rochester. Service is great. My only suggestion is to order one item at a time as we have experienced on several occasions our entrees showing up after we had only a couple of bites of our salads.
