One of Victoria's best establishing dining spots

Always a pleasant experience, at this well run establishment. Good service, fine fresh food, and a great ambiance. Certainly the best Italian food in Victoria and one of the best dining spots in the city.

Enjoyed a fabulous meal of Halibut with blackberry sauce and Asiago cheese. It was served with three cheese pasta, which was also excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant for an excellent meal if you don't mind a very busy, noisy atmosphere.

Whenever I travel to a new city the one thing I look for is certainty in quality food and an enjoyable dining experience. This is such a place. I have enjoyed its fine atmosphere, delicious food and exceptional service for over 20 years and it continues to delight. Yes it is for the most part Italian food but the menu... More

One of the few "Italian" Restaurants around that actually has Bolognese and Spaghetti on the menu. The food is great quality, the atmosphere lovely. My only comment has to do with the noise level. Gets to shouting level - but hey, it's Italian. I like to go early to avoid the noise.

This restaurant has broad appeal for locals and visitors alike. It offers beautiful spaces and a very professional service team. The house tapenade (complimentary) is the best I have ever tasted and they will happily offer you the list of ingredients. They offer plenty of seafood as well as artisan pizzas, pastas and salads. Their wine list is one of... More

After a long absence from ever going to Il Terrazzo, I had lunch with two friends last Thursday. The service was spot on. I had the BRODETTO del PESCATORE and SALSICCIA, both delicious and ample portions (a doggie bag was required for the SALSICCIA). Needless to say I will be back!

Il Terrazzo has a special place in my heart ever since my husband proposed there.. Now we go every Christmas and last season I enjoyed an amazing basket of mussels in a Thai inspired lemongrass sauce. Delightful!

Group of us had a meal here, service and food was first class. Choice of wine was endless which made choosing difficult but great to have that problem! Good value too!

We had been here before several years ago, and were eager to come back. I'm glad we did. It's a busy place - do make reservations. The setting is charming and romantic. The entrance is almost like a hidden secret. They have a large staff that keeps the service attentive and prompt. I had an amazing risotto; our group had... More

Let's just say, if I lived in Victoria this would probably be my favorite restaurant. Or one of them :-) Everything we ate here was delicious! Do make reservations though, since they book up quickly.
