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.

Fantastic meal with all the right ingredients in the premises, on the plate and on the palate. I don't know when I've seen wait/bus/bar staff more conscientious, energetic, knowledgeable, and business-like. Grazie et bravo a tutti.

I am Italian, from the South, and I know what a real pizza is. and these guys know how to do it! The pizza is delicious, thiny crust and very tasty. I still have to try pasta and other dishes. The staff is awesome - true Italian vibe in there! I'll be back, of course!

Had a late dinner with friends after a busy week. The food was outstanding and very reasonably priced. The atmosphere was great and excellent service. Will definitely go back.

Sent here by a friend, I was quite surprised to find a close-to-the-original, well cooked Italian pizza. What made me even happier was the wine selection, which includes some nice Italian choices too. To be fair, their Burrata would not be served in Italy (or at least, nowhere near Puglia) but being in the US I was more than happy... More

I ordered the margarita pizza. The crust was really good and the sauce was phenomenal. The gelato was super rich but it was really really good. I would definitely go back!

If you want an authentic italian pizza then this place will satisfy your craving. I went twice and would definitely go again. I even tried one of their sea food dishes and it was great. If you go ask for a table in their backyard. Also the owner of the resturant is very nice and is always there to welcome... More

Tricolore, pera & gorgonzola, porcini pizza... OMG, they are all so yummy! I always have a hard time picking my pizza. Not only is the food wonderful, but also there are no words to describe the warmth of the servers at Terun. This is of my fav places in the Bay Area.

Terun is an italian-ish place on California Ave in Palo Alto, and is OPEN UNTIL 10 PM! 2 stars for that alone, since we went there late and needed dinner. We started with the Caprese, which was soft, delicious mozarella with fresh heirloom tomatoes of various types - simply wonderful! My wife had the cavatelli special, I had the eggplant... More

Sitting outside on the (much more relaxed) patio, sipping Barolo (who has this wine by the glass?), one can only conclude that this restaurant is a major contribution to the usually overpriced and underwhelming Palo Alto dining scene. The pizza is divine - especially considering I spent most of my life believing that the usual, boring, floury-tasting thick crust was... More
