Very good food, served in a timely manner. The tables are very close together and the music was quite loud which makes a private conversation very hard.

Love Terroni ADELAIDE! The only reason I didn’t give an overall 5 stars is due to the noise level. I could hardly hear my dinner companion when the restaurant was full.

Food was good, service not so much. Server came maybe twice the whole meal, no Parmesan or pepper was given, did not receive our starter and overall felt forgotten. Have been to terroni queen many times and received far better service.

We had a problem at first as we were sat between people with young families. We asked for a new table and were accommodated. Maitre D admitted they had missed that.

Food was outstanding and wine was perfect. I had pasta with Bolognese sauce and my wife had the raviola special. Our server was terrific. Outstanding value for the price for sure. Could not stay for dessert.

I was quite disappointed because I was hoping for a great experience. I came on a Friday night to have a special date with my boyfriend, however the service wasn't the best. Our server was very bland and unenthusiastic. It impacted our dinner a lot as service is important to us. I wish I had a better date night experience :(

The only reason I wouldn't necessarily recommend this restaurant to my friends is that Italian dining wouldn't be the choice for most of them. Nor is it mine, but as far as authentic Italian food goes, the pastas were lovely and the service was excellent, which helped make up for the intense noise level

Food is excellent although I don’t recommend the gnocchi, it is very soft (almost mushy) and it is served with a pile of cold ricotta, not my thing. But the other three pasta dishes, two pizza and other apps I’ve had were outstanding. I have been twice and will go back again 100% to try another pasta/pizza. Anything I’ve had with the homemade sausage was delicious.

Responded on 9 October 2019

Hi Alex, thank you for your review on Terroni Adelaide. The Gnocchi alla Simi is on of our most popular dishes served with tomato sauce and fresh ricotta. However, a manager or server would have been happy to replace your meal for something else! Our sausage is a traditional family recipe and is made in house, highlighted in many of our pasta dishes! We look forward to your return to Terroni :)

Very nice upscale casual Italian restaurant. Grilled calamari was excellent but very little fish on the main menu. No chicken parmesan or Caesar salad on the menu. Not the traditional Italian dishes that I expected to find. However nice menu, good food and good service. Nice ambiance on the third floor. The main dining room was too noisy and tables too close. Nice evening but not as "Italian" as I would have liked. Would not go back but instead look for other good Italian restaurants in Toronto.

Terroni ADELAIDE
Responded on 9 October 2019

Hi Kimberly, we've been in business for 27 years and our menu is based on authentic traditional Italian food from various regions of Italy. Cesar salad and chicken parmesan are not authentically Italian, but rather Mexican and American derivatives. Chicken parmesan is an Americanized version of the traditional Italian eggplant parmigiana. At Terroni we pride ourselves in sharing authentic and traditional Italian experiences with our guests :)

Honestly just okay, clearly a very touristy so I didn’t feel like I was getting an authentic experience and the food was super overpriced. Our water pitcher had mysterious food pieces in it, so we asked for another and the second one did as well. So we didn’t have any water with our meal. I’d recommend researching the area to find something better.

The food was amazing! The service wasn’t that great though. We asked the server to bring bread and he never did. The food came 10 mins after we ordered, which was almost TOO quick (we felt rushed). After it came, the server gave us the bread ( after I asked) so it was weird to have bread with the meal as opposed to before. We were in and out in under an hour, and we would have liked it to be longer.

Great place for casual dining or a date. Food is reliably good. Garganelli Geppetto is my fav pasta! Always hits the spot. It can get loud during lunch or dinner so not a great place for intimate dining or business meeting unless you get one of the private rooms during popular times. Otherwise, a mainstay for places to eat in downtown T.O.

Everything was wonderful, the only comment would be, that all the pastas were still uncooked. I understand that they should be al dente, but these were not.
However, the flavours were still there and we truly loved those. Thank you.
