This wonderful Italian restaurant is located down a bricked alley near the inner harbor of Victoria. Good to walk to if you're on a boat. The dishes were imaginative & perfectly executed. Good service. The bare brick makes the dining room a bit loud but it is convivial. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Dinner reservations on the patio - Sunday evening the restaurant was packed - great service, food and wine selection great (a wine book vs list) ... loved the home made bread and olio ... definitely will be back!

Reservations are essential....several weeks ahead of time! Happy atmosphere; appropriate for adults and children; excellent wine list and menu; generous portions; great choices. This was a repeat visit for us, this time with family from D.C. Food and service were excellent. Our last visit was one year ago....we were not disappointed on our second visit. Fun casual nice atmosphere with... More

Decided on Il Terrazzo for our elopement dinner from an online search as we hadn't been to Victoria before. Little did we realize until we arrived in Victoria that locals did nothing but applaud us on our excellent choice of restaurants. And they were right! The most professional service, in a beautiful atmosphere (the ambience in the closed outdoor patio... More

Family of four looking for what was billed as the best Italian food in a "foody" city. Someone forgot to tell il Terrazzo. As a member of club "paisano" nothing about this place was Italian. The hostess had model good looks. The bar was well stocked. Wine list impressive. Seemed like the staff was plentiful and knowledgable. But none of... More

The portobello salad is to die for. My husband and I each had a wonderful salad, and shared the flatbread antipasto. Absolutely delicious and very filling. Atmosphere on patio is the best!

Due to a terrible experience at another restaurant, we ended up at Il Terrazzo on a Saturday night without a reservation. Luckily there were 2 seats at the bar. The bartender took excellent care of us from wine suggestions to being just the right amount of attentive. My husband had the Osso Buco and it was fabulous. We plan to... More
