First, we must compliment Michael, who either is the owner or manager or both. With a gracious spirit, he invited us in to the restaurant on a Sunday before it opened when he saw us browsing the posted menu on the door. He sat us down and promptly graced us with "on the house" espresso and biscotti and the warmth... More

Recently had a business group dinner at Terun. There were 7 of us dining. Parking around California Ave in the evening is very easy and plentiful. I never try to park on California Ave....but instead go directly to the blocks on either side, for plentiful free parking in the evening. It's well lit and typically very easy to find space... More

The crust is perfect, topping selections are interesting and fresh. They have extremely good vegetable side dishes - fava beans, kale, brussel sprouts - more selection than any other restaurant and every one deliciously and creatively prepared. My only problem is having even room to have a bit of everything.

It is so hard to find a place where the food, the ambiance and the customer service all fit - well we found the place that has done just that. If you want a comfortable setting, great personalized service and the best pizza ever so you feel like you could just hang out for the night, then this is your... More

This is the best Italian place in South Bay. No doubt. Featured in New York Times, it is absolutely the best Italian food in a great atmosphere and with very friendly staff. I would definitely come back. I would go for Terun pizza and Parmiggiana. I would also order a Montepulciano red wine. It is absolutely amazing.

Visited Terun after reading some reviews all over the place saying that this place is suppose to be one of the best Pizza places in Palo Alto. Well, by all means this IS the best Pizza around. I mean, the other non-pizza dishes were good too, maybe even very good, but the pizza was absolutely perfect! crispy, balanced, fresh. Beautiful... More

My wife and I were truly spoiled after eating in restaurants in Vienna , Budapest and Prague this past summer. We were also truly disappointed by a so called Italian restaurant we dined at a couple of view in Mountain View. So it was to our great amazement and utter delight when we finished eating one of the most delicious... More

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
