The food was fantastic and the service exceptional. It was our first time there but we will definitely be back when we are in town. Try the lasagna with meatballs.

We hadn't been to Terza since the COVID pandemic. Last night we enjoyed salads and pizzas with friends. The service was fabulous and the food was very good. The only off-note was being seated after a 15 minute wait, even though we had a reservation.

We started with the calamari and then had the parmesan walleye, pesto gnocchi, and lasagna. All were delicious, and the service was great. We brought our own bottle of wine, and the corkage fee was reasonable at $20.

Always good food. The desserts are really good too. I noticed they cut down on portion sizes i.e.-the meatballs are about half the size they use to be and the cocktails weren't even served in standard tumbler; maybe an 8 oz glass. Looked like a dessert glass that you buy from Cosco. Quite odd. A little expensive for Rochester, MN. Otherwise overall very good.

Fantastic! My husband and I had dinner at Tezra for date night. We were thrilled to find such a great restaurant for date nights! The food and service were outstanding. My husband said his entree (fish) was the best he had ever had. I have already made another reservation.

Terza is our favorite restaurant in Rochester. Best Italian food outside of Italy. Service is attentive and friendly. We’ve tried almost everything on the menu, and have never been disappointed. Excellence in every way.

The bread, asparagus and pasta were very good. The calamari was not our favorite. We enjoyed the pizza and would have liked the same crisp on the bottom as was on the edges.

We did feel that given we arrived early in the dinner time we could have been spaced out better.

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!
