Trust us with your Italian experience.
Located in the Rosedale -Summerhill neighborhood.
I took my husband to Terroni at Summerhill for his birthday, thinking it would be a lovely treat.
Unfortunately, the service was adequate; the tables were too close together; and most importantly, the food was mediocre at best. I did not drink and spent $200 for the two of us. At that price point it should have been a better experience.
Never disappoints !!
Fantastic food, great choices, fabulous wine list
The whole experience was outstanding. We were celebrating a birthday and wanted to go somewhere special and Terroni really fit the bill. We ordered the Buffalo Caprese salad and the vegan olives and b read to start and b both were excellent. Our mains consisted of a Margherita pizza, two vegan pastas and spaghetti bolognese. All were exceptional. The pasta servings were a little on the small side, especially the vegan options. For dessert we sampled the gelato, pistachio, chocolate and lemon. All were as you would expect. One issue was that we let them know it was a birthday celebration and didn't hear back about options such as bringing your own cake. Inspite of a couple of issues, we all had a great time and would highly recommend.
Best place for warm and “homy” atmosphere and fantastic food!! Our go-to place when we fill like going out but still feeling like at home with “comfort” food! Also they teach Italian in their cool bathrooms - GENIUS :)
My daughter’s 15th family birthday dinner
Over priced and underwhelming. They brought our food out so fast it’s as if they were trying to turn the table around quickly on a Monday night! The food and wine prices keep going up and the quality and quantity of it goes down.
I keep coming back to terroni because or their food. On this particular reservation I was celebrating my 30th birthday they sat us in the coat rack hallways with boxes all over. It was between 2 sections of the restaurant. I've never been so disgusted to be sat in such a spot. For a restaurant that starts their tip recommendations off at 18% they really shouldn't have a table in that spot. The host and server both said there were no other tables. I said I'd wait as this isn't acceptable. The server then ignored us and we saw no one and was given no water for 20 minutes until we stopped a food runner to ask for help. A manager came and wow I was blown away by how unprofessional he was. When I mentioned that majority of people wouldn't be okay with this table he said they need to think of their profits and that some people are fine with it. He moved us to another table and never once came back to check in. Service is terrible here, I'd only recommend because of the food.
Hi Mishka, thank you for your 5-star review on our food. The room you are referring to is a private table in a semi-private space and is one of our most requested tables for larger groups. It is considered our wine room as there are wine bottles along the shelving of the walls as well as wine boxes. We are disappointed to read about your service experience and will be sharing these comments with our management team. Thank you and have a nice day
Cold food and cold bread
Hi there, our bread is made fresh every morning at our bakeries, Sud Forno, and is not served warm at the table. We apologize if the food was served cold as this is not acceptable. However, a manager is always on duty to assist guests with immediate needs and concerns when notified. Please don't hesitate to ask for the assistance of a manger so we can guarantee you don't leave feeling the way you did.
Our meals were excellent and so was the service. It's such lovely restaurant. My only "complaint" is the noise level is really high - almost deafening. However, there is a back section of the restaurant that is slightly less noisy - better for conversation.
Hi MikeF, as we enter the holiday season the environment can get quite festive and apologize in advance. Please know you can always put in a seating request when making a reservation and our hosts will do their best to accommodate you. Thank you and we look forward to your return :)
Granted it was a very busy Saturday night, but my waitress was average at best in terms of attentiveness and responsiveness. Overall food was 6/10. Ordered seafood pasta - 6/10. Par for the course nothing to write home about. One of the pizza choices was bland, again 6/10 at best. The other pizzas were better 7/10. I'm sure there are other better choices on the menu which may provide a higher rating.
Bottom line, go somewhere else. There's many restaurants in the area at around the same price point, (Yonge & St. Clair), of which I've been to and all had much tastier food, better service (Terroni is large and noisy) and overall better experience.
Hi Brad, we're very disappointed to read this review but over the past 27 years we have always used the best and highest quality ingredients in all of our dishes. Please know a manager is always on duty to assist with our guest's immediate needs and concerns. We hope you consider returning to enjoy what majority of our guests do on a daily basis. Thanks and have a nice day
As always the food was excellent. The service however was good, but not great. Items for us were given to the table next to us and vice versa.
Hi MelissaC, thank you for your feedback and review. We will be sharing your service comments with our management team. We hope you consider giving us another chance to experience what majority of our guests do. Thank you and happy Thursday :)
I wasn’t too impressed with the brunch option on the main floor. Crowded and I would have much preferred the regular menu.
Hi NancyS, Bar Centrale - the main floor restaurant - do not offer the traditional Terroni menu. Terroni, does not offer a brunch menu but the standard a la carte menu. We're disappointed to read that you did not enjoy your brunch experience with us as it is very popular for many of our regulars. We hope you consider returning to enjoy what majority of our guests do.
Great food great service. Milena was awesome !!! Second time there would definitely go back.
Server was not attentive, did not offer complimentary bread, cheese for pasta, etc. but she offered to all tables around us. Maybe because we were the only minorities. I did not feel welcomed and will not be returning. Restaurant is over-filled with people at tight tables and way too loud to talk to the person in front of you. Food was okay.
Our go to place!
Amazing staff, amazing food. Simple and sweet. Highly recommend
My server was rude and ignorant!
Excellent as always and staff very friendly and helpful
Thank you JamesB for these kind words! We look forward to your return :)
Great ambiance and food. Very different atmosphere from other locations. Love the idea that it is above ground with natural light and views of downtown Toronto.
Hi PatriciaD, thank you for your review. Every Terroni location is indicative based off the neighbourhood and audience. We look forward to having you return :)
We requested medium rare steak and it was way too dry. It was a BP so people did not want to escalate and just ate it without complaining. Otherwise everything was good and we most likely come back.
Thank you Anna for your 5-star review! Please always bring this to the attention of a server who may assist you and keep you happy. We look forward to having you return in the future :)
Dont go at this location. This place used to be so nice. I dont know what has happened this year. Very poor service. Kids running around. The following happened all in one night. I found a hair hidden in my fish. The waitier did not even offer cheese for the pasta which is a standard service. Messed up the drink order. Antipasto order came cold. She didn't even check to see if everthing was ok. Disaster night. Never going back.
Great place for casual dining with friends or family. Service is prompt and friendly and the food is reasonably good. Choice for main course, however, is limited to pasta or pizza, which is problematic for those on a low-carb diet.
Hi MaryamM, Terroni is an authentic Italian restaurant which offers the best of Italy: pizza and pasta. However we do also offer daily fish and meat specials as well as various salads and appetizers which suit many dietary needs. Please ask your server if you have any questions regarding the menu and they will be more than happy to guide you in finding something of your liking. Thanks and have a nice day.
Excellent food, but reputedly noisy. Top ratings for our charming server of Somali origin.
Hi michaelg, thank you for your review! We will share your comments with our management team and server and this will surely make their day. We hope to see you back soon :)
Best restaurant in the city hands down.
Always excellent food, especially great pizza. Service on the spot. Very lively and noisy. A favourite for family dinners.
Thank you so much for the 5-star review and kind words. We look forward to seeing you for your next family dinner out :)
Always good food
Thank you lizk, we appreciate the kind words and 5-star review! Happy friday :)
Great ambience. Pasta special great. Fish too small. Food came all together and too fast. Missing to offer cheese pepper etc. Still a nice place for occasions.
HI PabloH, thank you for your feedback we will share your comments with our management team. Our servers are trained to assist our guests with any requests or needs they may have. Thanks and have a nice Friday :)
Great service and delicious food. Everyone enjoyed it.
Hi there, we're so happy to read you and your party enjoyed the food and service! We hope to have you back soon :)
I believe the restaurant is too dim. I saw a customer who was using her phone`s camera light to see the menu.
Hi BirolA, thank you for the 5-star food review! We will share your comments with our management team and hope to see you back at Terroni soon :)
Bruyant, nourriture moyenne et froide, pizza décevante , peu garnie
Great family friendly Italian restaurant with a bit of an upscale feel and look. Service was top notch. Food is always consistently good.
Hi RussellB, top notch comments are always appreciated! Thank you for understanding what Terroni has to offer. We look forward to having you back :)
Good service. Great food. Very loud.
Hi there, thank you for the feedback and 5-star review. We will share your comments with our management team. Have a nice day :)
Service was very good, but no bread was offered.Nice table. Salads have gotten a lot smaller( have been coming for 15 years) and dressing was a bit heavy. Could have used more greens in the Nizzarda. Still reliable spot for girlfriend lunch.
Hi there, thank you for your feedback. We value what our regulars have to say and we will address this internally. Please know a manager is always on duty to assist you should you have any questions or concerns. Thank you and hope to have you back soon
Food and waitress were very good. Hostess was on the phone - keeping us waiting without acknowledgement.- for several minutes. There were people behind us waiting. A waiter said he would show us to the table- we started walking and he didn't follow. Hardly anyone there so we sat ourselves. It was an important occasion- first impressions are important and mine was not good. First concern for any successful business should be when you start to treat clients differently. It was not the first time either. I won't hurry back.
Hi TreB, thank you for mentioning the food and waitress were good. We will be reviewing the welcome you received upon arrival with our management team as this is not representative of how we want each guest to feel when they arrive. We hope you reconsider returning to Terroni in the future.
The special (lasagna bolognese) was a big disappointment. Two orders for the same item were very different in size, taste was unremarkable. Portion of thin slices of swordfish did not amount to very much fish for $34. Soup was good but overpriced at $12. Maybe we just ordered the wrong things - I remember the pizza being good - but we will not rush back to Terroni.
Hi FrancesP, we were extremely disappointed to read this and will be sharing your comments with our management team and chef. Please know there is always a manager on duty to help with guest immediate needs and concerns. We hope you consider returning to Terroni to experience the authentic, traditional dishes we have to offer. Thank you and have a nice day.
Fantastic as always! Great food, great service, great wine! Love coming here! The servers really know their stuff and the food is always above and beyond! Hot, fresh, cooked properly with the best ingredients!
Hi KathrynS, thank you for appreciating everything Terroni has to offer. Providing the best quality ingredients and consistency to our customers is always a priority! We look forward to your return and happy Friday :)
you can never go wrong with Terroni. the vibe at summerhill is the best out of the 3 locations. anything on the menu never disappoints. pasta is always al dente and food overall is flavorful and amazing. Terroni is always a favorite go to for Italian.
Hi Isabelle, thank you for your review. We're happy to hear that were a go to Italian restaurant for your! We value your loyalty and look forward to your next visit. Have a nice day :)
Great maître helped us find quieter seats. Waitress was over tables. No complaints at all. When we saw her she was fine. Just having to track down parm cheese seems silly and waiting 20 minutes to collect bill when we asked for it was unnecessary
Hi Butterscotched, thank you for your 5-star review. We will share these comments with our management team to review steps to service with our servers. We look forward to having you back at Terroni on Price st. Have a nice Thursday :)
Food has got progressively worse here every time we come back.... the ingredients don’t taste fresh and service this time was not good. Had to ask 2 times before our wine was brought to us. On a more positive note, I did try the pizza instead of a pasta dish and it was quite good.
Food was good, service was, as well.
Hi MoshieW, thank you for appreciating the food and service Terroni has to offer! We hope to see you back soon :)
Spaghetti limone wasn’t as tasty as usual. Normally very consistent dishes.
Thank you Laura for reaching out. The Spaghetti Limone is a popular for many of our regular patrons. A manager is always on duty to help with guest needs and can address your concerns immediately by replacing the dish and further investigate the situation so it does not occur again. Hope you will return and continue to enjoy the Spaghetti Limone.
