I went for dinner with my best friend who was visiting from out of town. Our server was outstanding and made great recommendations. The wine list was large, however, for the price the pour was small. Outside of that the food was excellent. I can’t remeber the names of all the dishes; we shared the duck, pasta with crab (definitely my favorite), pesto pasta and pear tart dessert. Overall we were both happy with the dinner choice.

My husband and I went to Terzo to celebrate his birthday. We had driven past often and been slightly put off by the prices. For a special event, however, the restaurant was perfect. Our server was attentive but understated, the restaurant was tastefully decorated and still fairly casual, and the food was delicious. A really incredible wine list, and the staff is eager to share thoughts about the selections. All the pasta is homemade—and tastes like it. Can't think of a single thing to improve.

I messed up my reservation and the host was super accommodating. The wine list is spectacular, but they aren't snobby. It's not too loud, the lighting is super flattering, the service is on point and the FOOD IS SOOOOOO GOOD. The cheese plates but other cheese plates to shame. Fresh, rich taste-bud smashing cheese. The main courses are flavor intense and oh so good. We were too full for dessert, I definitely want to come back to just gorge on cheese and dessert.

Took us some time to have our order taken but once on it, she was great. We tried some of the meat and cheese starters, mussels and a couple of pastas which were all good but the best thing was a mistake the kitchen made and was gifted to us. A branzini I believe that was out of this world.

I enjoyed my birthday dinner at Terzo. The wine selection is always excellent, if expensive. The food was imaginative, shareable, and extremely well-prepared. The mushroom-pear risotto was outstanding! Our server was top-notch, knowledgeable, helpful, courteous, and friendly. We had a great table in the window and were treated to a birthday glass of prosecco, which we appreciated. It was still a little noisier than my elderly ears can deal with well, but we appreciated being a bit separated from the bulk of the restaurant. All in all, a lovely celebration of my birthday. Thanks!

We found the server to be not particularly engaged, descriptive of menu rather than any buy in of the specialties. They had 4 entrees and the one we wanted was not stocked that day- unfortunate. Very creative pairings with vegetables and starch. Vegetarian dish was per forma, not too interesting and we felt over charged.

The host, servers and everyone catered to our every need and seemed genuinely happy to have us there. We got outstanding recommendations from our server and were able to orchestrate the meal so we could try many things. The food was everything we hoped and I'd recommend with enthusiasm!

Terzo was a very pleasant surprise......even for a person who does not eat meat or dairy! Most Italian restaurants have trouble accommodating this but Terzo did it with ease and our server even asked us if there were any food allergies. So wonderful and the food was very authentic; I am very picky after living in Italy for four years.
