    House noodles are worth it! My chicken was somewhat over cooked and my waiter was new and a bit cluncky, but the vibe was wonderful and I would go go back. The drinks and appetizer were nicely done!

    Kind of a dud for a waiter. Food was okay house made pasta was a little disappointing. Wait staff described a 1” wide noodle a little thicker than fettuccine.

    The calamari appetizer is to die for! We also had the pesto Rosa salmon special, and a Caesar with shrimp and asparagus side. Both were excellent. Our serve, Amber, was very attentive and helpful.

    We eat at Terza whenever we are in Rochester for Mayo Clinic appointments. The food is great, as are the servers. We usually sit along the wall to keep our distance from other diners. I wish those two tops were a bit larger, but we make it work. We feel lucky that Terza is right across the street from our hotel.

    We had gone to a play we thought would be done before nine but went past so it was probably nine twenty when we arrived. My wife explained what happened and told the manager we would understand if they did not want to seat us. He said since we were there he could seat us even though there were only a handful of diners remaining. Our service was great and we did not feel as though the staff was upset by our lateness. The food, as usual was very good. All in all a great experience!

    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!!
