Food was ok but lacking very much in presentation. My Caprese salad looked like they dumped some sliced cherry tomatoes in a bowl and plopped a ball of mozzarella cheese on top! Could barely see any fresh basil either.

Hi LindaL, thank you for your review. We're disappointed to hear you didn't enjoy the presentation of the caprese salad as it is a popular choice for many of our guests. We will be sharing your comments with chef and hope you consider coming back in the future to La Bettola di Terorni.

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.

Fabulous food and coffee. Lamb ragu was full of flavour and not fatty! Homemade pasta was just right in texture, sauce and cheese.
Wonderful cappucchino to finish

This has been about our 4th time here. Wonderful
service, wonderful wines by the glass and nice atmosphere. Their pizza is always outstanding. Tonight I decided to have their spaghetti with vongole (clams). Should have stuck with pizza. The sauce lacked flavour and was a disappointment. The panna cotta made up for it. It is delicious and so are their espresso. drinks.

Reserved table was not ready, food was desperately slow, one hour before salads arrived. all the tables around us were served well before us. We didn’t have time to have dessert or coffee but the tables around us did. My fresh pasta was undercooked, all four of us found our food oversalted. The washrooms were disgusting. I have never had a restaurant experience as poor as this evening, I Will not go back. I hope it was not their norm.

The food and service was good. My only complaint would be the condition of the washrooms. They were so dirty and gross!! Especially the men’s washroom. It had black dirt all over the vanity and toilet. They are also very small and uncomfortable to use. For a restaurant this nice, the washrooms really should be redone and be able to accommodate more than 2 people at once. There was always a line up outside the washrooms because there’s only 2 in the whole restaurant, which is ridiculous for a restaurant of this size.

I’ve been to many of the Terroni restaurants in Toronto and was excited to try this restaurant with my friends. The food was good, unfortunately the customer service put a damper on the whole experience. The waitress was not engaged (half listening) when we were ordering our food and seemed bothered when we had questions about the menu. I am also aware that many restaurants do not modify the contents of a dish, as it is important for the composition/integrity of the dish. However, I have never had issues removing ingredients due to dietary restrictions or preference in taste. I acknowledge if the ingredients were already mixed up together and could not be separated that it would be difficult to do. But when it is a salad that was not mixed together and made from scratch, it was quite shocking to hear I could only remove one item and not two. I told her I wasn’t going to eat the second ingredient and that it was just wasting food. She said it is important for the composition of the plate. Thus, I guess the restaurant has no problem wasting food, in return for the plate “looking good”. My friends and I have season tickets to the theatre and we dine at the restaurants near there quite frequently. This will definitely be a restaurant that we will NOT put in our rotation.

We made a reservation for dinner pre theatre. Drove 150 km and were slightly late. We were given a list by an agent of our bank of five restaurants near the Elgin (hadn't been to any of them).We (I) picked this one out of a hat. What can go wrong with an Italian restaurant? Answer:- plenty!
My wife ordered salmon. It was dreadful and was sent back. My pasta was partially cooked. The wine was indifferent. As was the service although the waitress did manage to seem somewhat embarrassed.

Prior to our theatre night we were looking for a nice place for a meal and wine.
Owner recommended a wine we had never tried and the selection was wonderful
Our server was very gracious and did not rush us along. She spent the time to ensure we were selecting great choices for our likes.
We were fortunate to have a table to ourselves rather than the open table seating.
Overall we would recommend to our friends and we will all return when we are in town again.

The homemade pasta is a delight and the appetizer Caprese, and gelato dessert amazing. Wine list confusing as just can't tell what is semi dry or earthy based on Italian wine description. Quaint atmosphere...a little loud at first but able to talk at a small table. The waitstaff felt it was her obligation to correct every pronunciation we made when ordering. I don't speak Italian..I am from the US. Never had someone correct me not only on food names like Caprese and Orchiette pasta but on the
pronunciation of the theater we are going to following dinner. Hope she gets some kick out of making fun of paying customers. Yikes!
