Excellent as always! I had the daily fish special in parchment. Simply delicious. My friend had the orechetti. Service was perfect. Love this Terroni. It’s intimate and special.

I am on a special, but not difficult, diet, and I asked for no dressing on a salad and a side dish of balsamic vinegar. To which the server, and the Manager, both responded after asking several times "We don't do that". They offered me a side of olive oil or a side of lemon, but would not give me a side of balsamic vinegar. This is unacceptable. Any other restaurant in the city would have given me, the customer, that in a heartbeat.

I am a regular customer there and will now no longer be frequenting this establishment.

Short story: this place is overrated. Food that is "just OK", along with poor service is not a combination for success. Add to that the fact they famously resist any attempts to personalize the dishes, makes this a place that I am glad to avoid in the future.

Booked this restaurant for a special dinner before the theater. Because of dietary resrictions the choices were limited. We ordered the Cod . It came sitting on pureed califlower quite rare. That was it. This choice was $40 !! Both of us enjoy good food and were very disappointed . The bill was $108 with no alcohol.

The only issue is the price of the wines. My husband asked for a half litre of house, was told they didn't have house wines and the price ended up being $57 for the half litre. Yes he should have looked again at the menu BUT...
Not sure that I like the "party table" it worked this time as we were doing a pre show dinner, but we weren't told this upon making a reservation.

We had dinner prior to theatre at the Elgin/wintergarden. Service was great and timing good too but food was mediocre at best. Two bowls of pasta and a bottle of wine for $200 doesn’t cut it any more. Presentation counts and a sprinkle of basil or even a sprig of parsley would go a long way. Great location but pretty disappointing.

Terroni is one of my favourite restaurants however my experience this time was less than satisfactory. I think one server was looking after the whole room. There was little or no greeting. It took a long time before someone took our order.

The wine finally came and was very good. Then the food came. The salads were ok. Normally they are exceptional. Then the main course came. Mine was ice cold. So cold I wasn’t sure if I had ordered a cold dish by mistake. My dish was taken away and reheated. Maybe in a microwave.... so while my guest picked at her food I waited. When it came it was fine. We both had pasta. No pepper was offered. Not Parmesan cheese, no hot peppers. All in all it was very disappointing.

Also the water had a funny taste. We were told they were new water glasses and must have had a residue on them. New water and glasses were brought over and it was fine.

This wasn’t the most expensive meal I have had but it wasn’t cheap. I would have hoped for better service and better food.

The server did bring us cannoli as an apology.

We originally booked at 5:45 reservation But had to change to 645… Arrived at 7 APM, as we were detained by a medical appointment… Hostess quite rude and told us that we really should’ve called prior, she said address in the far reaches of the dining area, in front of a fire exit. The noise level was so high we couldn’t hear each other speak so we left prior to being served.

I have been here a few times, and when it's not busy it is ok. But tonight there were 2 shows on, and the place was packed. The service was average (they didn't ramp up their staff to handle a full restaurant), and the black truffle pasta that I have ordered at least 20 times in the past was not up to standard. It was the first time I was disappointed in the dish. It was a VERY small portion, compared to what I have had many times in the past, the sauce tasted off, and the truffles didn't blend in at all - the pieces were too large, and stiff. A very disappointing experience compared to what I was expecting.
