Possibly the best Italian food in BC. Ambiance is full of life without being overly noisy. Serving staff excellent, really know the menu. Food is superb, try the Funghi Salad to start, and better steak than most steak houses. Wine list extensive, with an entire section at the back of very good wines available in half-size bottles, perfect for two... More

Good food but cramped, squished and incredibly hot environment. Sitting practically in the kitchen, which is also the route to the bathroom. Staff overworked and full of attitude. Not worth it, wouldn't go back.

Another excellent dinner at Il Terrazzo. Service, wine list, menu ambiance always great! We were a party of 5 celebrating my Mom's 80 Birthday. Of course we had to finish off the night with the tiramisu......

We have been going to Il Terrazzo for anniversaries, birthdays, New Year's dinners, since we moved here in 1983. The staff is attentive and courteous. The ambience is perfect! The smell, when you walk in, is guaranteed to make you hungry! It starts off with a delicious tapenade, and ends with a creme brulee. We have never had a less-than-positive... More

Our group of seven including four teenagers was well served. Service was friendly and helpful. There was enough selection for everyone, pasta, halibut, appetizers, all were enjoyed by our group, servings were large enough for hungry youths. We also enjoy the beautifully restored ,old brick building in "Old Town", the bricked paths and patio spaces spark one's imagination to picture... More

We live in Victoria and this is one our favourite restaurants. It never fails to impress us with the menu and quality of food. It has a "terrace" which is now almost enclosed but still very quaint with vines and brick fireplaces. The service is great but it is usually quite busy and therefore can sometimes be a little loud.

One of Victoria's classic restaurants and good value for the experience. It is high end but the staff make it worth every penny. No doubt...you will enjoy.

The service, the ambiance, the wine list are all just perfect. But the food is sensational. Wow is it ever good and might well be the best I've ever had.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at IL Terrazzo. Great ambience, service was above average, great wine selection. Salads were very fresh. Had the Halibut on pasta with a 3 cheese sauce...simply superb. I would return for this dish alone

Had dinner last Saturday. Our server was fantastic; very helpful with the needs of a big crowd. The mussels continue to be amazing. The tuna and scallop salad was also yummy although they use the small rubber scallops vs the larger one's easily sourced in Victoria. The Halibut was drowned in a sauce that the fish was lost in.
