Excellent Italian -- the real deal, not the North American red sauce version. Each dish at table of 7 was delicious. The lamb ragout stood out.

They definitely need more staff or the ones they have now need to be a lot more efficient. I brought my best friend here for her birthday and the food was awesome and the server was sweet and detail attentive but we had to wait ridiculous amount of time for every step in the dinner. I had reservations two weeks prior and was please to be seated quickly but that was the only thing quick thing that night. when we sat down we had to wait 30 minutes to place an order for our drinks and another 45 minutes to place an order for our meals. The food came out in 15 minutes which was pretty good but then again I had to wait 30 minutes and ask someone to get our waitress from the back so i could pay. A dinner that could have tooken less than an hour and some ended up taking 2 hours and a half. I guess you can say it's good for dates cuz then you guys can take all that time getting to know each other

Pretty good food at what’s become a Toronto mainstay. Our service left something to be desired, though.

i love coming to Terroni, and have multiple times. however, this time was different. when booking the reservation, there was no mention of a time limit.
when i arrived, the hostess told me we’d need to be out by 845pm ( reso was for 7pm).
then my other guest arrived and sat down. the server proceeded to ask if we were ready to order within a minute of her arrival!
when we were nearing the end of our meal, our server - who was nice and polite about it - told us we’d need to leave soon, as the next reservation was there. he was apologetic.
the WHOLE experience from when i walked in the door to leaving, i felt rushed.
from a business standpoint i understand, but there was no mention of this when i booked. if there had been, perhaps i would have thought twice or at least been aware.
i doubt i’d ever come dine there on a weekend evening again :(

Hi serenaw, thank you for your review. When making a reservation at Terroni Queen, open table sends our guests a confirmation e-mail with details regarding our restaurant guidelines such as the time you are given to dine with us based on your party size. For parties of two we reserve the table for 1.45 minutes. We apologize if this was not clear and will review this with management for the future. Please note a manager is always on duty to help with immediate needs or concerns. Thanks!

Pasta was great, had the truffle pasta dish. We ordered the Bistecca a la Fiorentina, the meat was cold and was very chewy, also missing flavour for the price we paid for the dish, I would not order it again. Dessert and espresso was good, Wine selection was great

Great food, good service. Lovely spot! My only suggestion would be that for a restaurant that is on the pricier side for pasta, cutlery and place settings should be cleared between courses.

We found that the whole expierence wasn’t as good as it used to be. Up front the server was good but he forgot to bring the bread , oil & peppers which we always used to get. We thought that it wasn’t offered anymore but then realized that he forgot, as we saw other tables getting it right up front.
A small thing , but something we always enjoyed .

Unfortunately the kitchen was so fast that it was hard to enjoy the bottle of wine we ordered to accompany our appetizers and mains. Our appetizers arrived in less than 5 minutes and mains arrived shortly after our appetizers were cleared. Way too rushed for the price you pay for the food, which quite nice. Pity as it really took away from our anniversary meal.

Thank you ChrisW for your review, we care about our guest experiences. We sincerely apologize that you felt rushed and that the service was so fast on your Anniversary.It is never our intention to make any guest feel rushed. On average at Queen a party of 2 stays for 1 and a half to 2 hours. If you made a reservation and were given an out by time it would have been for 8pm. We will be reviewing this with management at Terroni Queen & hope you will consider returning again in future.

Food was great, service was good and prices were very affordable. Only wish they were a bit more organized when it came to my reservation. A lot of people who had been waiting for walk in seemed to get tables first and we had to wait awhile until a table was available.

A great Friday night meal. One appetizer, two pastas, two desserts, two espressos and a half litre cost about $155 with taxes (tip not included). Terroni’s great for a date, special occasion or just a treat to you and friends. Friday, they serve fresh doughnuts as one of the dessert options which is a treat. Reservations are a must after 6 pm. If the night is beautiful try getting a spot on the patio. It doesn’t feel like you’re in the city.

The experience was horrible the waiter never checked on us once. I had to ask a another serve twice to get our waiter which never happened and on the third attempt we just asked the first server for the bill so we could leave after this terrible experience. The was great as always but the service was horrible. Very disappointed...

I came here on my birthday for what was supposed to be a lovely meal, but unfortunately they do not do substitutions. As someone allergic to cows milk, this meant I could only eat about 3 different dishes. I was not pleased that I was unable to get something I wanted because they did not want to change the type of cheese that it was dressed with, even though I was willing to pay more for this option. This meant I had to settle.

It was ok. The food was good and the service was very good. The drinks were all pretty small in size. The take home containers were tinfoil and a bag which I thought was odd. Overall experience was good, but for a birthday dinner I would have chosen somewhere else.
