I was in the restaurant on a business dinner. I had the Mediterranean Sea Bass, which was very nice, with crispy kind and a hint of garlic. Nice! But the absolut highlight was the dessert: caramel gelato with sea salt and olive oil! A combination I have never tasted before, and it was simply to die for! Service was good... More

Have you ever come back from a vacation in Italy, and thought the highlight of the trip was the food? And then you catch yourself thinking, why can't we find food like that back home? Well, I have found it for you. Terun, is the place. Pizzas are as authentic as I have eaten on my many trips to Italy.... More

Probably the best wood fired pizza I have ever had. Also, they have a nice selection of vegetable dishes. We shared the chard and peas. It was so delicious that I could go back again and again just for this dish. The only downside was that we were seated on the patio and it was insanely noisey. I know that... More

I spend two to three months living in Tuscany annually. I went to this restaurant once a year ago and I was very disappointed. The pizzas were similar to frozen pizzas I have had in the past. They had little sauce, cheese or other substances. Overall it was over pricd and definitely not authentic pizza.

I had lunch hear with some colleagues. The food was okay. Two of us ordered Panini. I ordered the veggie Panini which was okay. It could have been seasoned better for it to taste better. We ordered pizza which was thin crust. It did indeed taste like the pizza I had in Italy. However, I did not find it exceptional.... More

I was visiting Palo Alto to see my 7 year old granddaughter. I took her here for a light dinner. We shared a beet salad and a Tricolore pizza. There was plenty of food and it was excellent. I have no problem recommending it.

This is a terrific Italian restaurant specializing in real Naples style pizza, but with 6-7 other entrees that are also excellent. The starters here are a stand-out - my favorites are Brussels sprouts with Gorgonzola, and Swiss chard and peas. In addition, as a wine lover I appreciate the well chosen, reasonably priced wine list. You should always drink Italian... More

Disclosure: I did not have the pizza which appears to be the reason for high ratings. My eggplant parmigiana was good comfort food, but nothing extraordinary. My colleague's risotto was underwhelming. Thankfully there was a table outdoors for it was too loud inside to hear yourself think, let alone carry on a business conversation. Solid food and decent value for... More

The Pizza has a nice taste and the flavour remind me a true Italian one. A very positive point of the restaurant is the oven, it is a original "forno a legna". The beer selection is decent to be a restaurant, the dessert are good but not excellent.
