Excellent food in large portions, great sommelier.

We had a very nice, slightly slowly paced meal--excellent food but very large portion sizes. The very knowledgeable sommelier recommended a superb BC pinot. The atmosphere is rustic, cozy, noisy, and very convivial.

Went with friends who had read about it. Beautiful setting, average but expensive food. Other people at our B&B ate there the same night and had the same impression. Maybe they were between chefs or chef was sick. Very mediocre food.

The meal was fantastic, but even better was the wine selection, we asked for help in choosing and Justin took time to listen to our desired taste and character and selected the perfect bottle of wine to help my wife and I celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The restaurant exceeded our expectations and lived up to their reviews.

Loved this place! Food was delicious and our waitress was so warm & welcoming. The setting is really beautiful - felt like we were in Italy. We were in Victoria for 4 days and found most restaurants to be very expensive, but Il Terrazzo was reasonable. Huge wine list too.

Very busy, crowded Italian restaurant, located in an inner courtyard alleyway. No views. But really good food. We had the roasted garlic appetizer and calamari. My prawn past with arugula was perfect. Would go back, just wish they had water view, breezes.

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Victoria for special occasions or intimate meals. The food is consistently delicious and the menu is unique. Il Terrazzo has been around since the '90s, and it's always busy, so they are doing something right! I recently brought some out-of-town guests together with family for my birthday dinner. The server was the... More

After reviews here I was expecting much better. My salad was very good though (greens,pears,cranberries with fried goat cheese). My husband also liked his Caesar salad but our entrees were not so appetizing. My husbands Ahi tuna came out cold and his noodles were hard. I had venison with butternut squash stuffed pasta in balsamic reduction. Venison tasted good along... More

I ordered the Tuna dish which is called the Tonno. A true disappointment. Not only did they over cook the fish the first time around but when I returned it, it was very undercooked. Warmish on the outside and extremely cold on the inside. Considering it was voted the second best restaurant in Victoria I would never, ever recommend it.... More

I had the "cervo" - venison and butternut squash cannelloni, paired with a refreshing rosé. Amazing!
