Amazing fresh delicious food served with care!

I have now been 3 times and continue to love going with friends who haven't yet discovered this gem. I love the Tricolore Pizza made with melt-in-the-mouth fresh buffalo mozzarella cheese and arugula lettuce. Oh, I haven't eaten pizza for more than 20 years and now that is all I want to eat!

We had lunch on their back terrace recently and the antipasto was really excellent, but very large! I've been told their their pizza is great, but we had salads and they were terrific lunch salads. I'd come back here again the next time I visit Palo Alto.

Small restaurant with large outdoor patio with heater which is needed in Palo Alto. The staff was welcoming and the owner is really an Italian. The salads were excellent. We had the grill romaine and the butter lettuce and both were great. Served with the right amount of dressing. The pizza margarita was very similar to Italy. Also had the... More

We stumbled upon Terun quite by accident. Driving around looking for food, it had nice curb appeal so we went in. It's not huge inside, but cozy and clean. It was a Wednesday night and quite busy. But we were greeted right away by a host who was clearly busy but still charming. He talked to us slowly, looked at... More

I usually avoid Italian restaurants when abroad but here I found very good pizza and the service was fantastic. Maico was a perfect host and it was a pleasure to meet him and listen to his stories.

Delicious Italian food! We shared several starters, including the eggplant polpette, which was very original and fabulous. The calamari with faro and beet salad were also awesome. We then shared a couple of pasta dishes which consisted of homemade pasta. The service is wonderful, the staff is friendly and efficient. I look forward to trying other dishes:-)

We live in Mill Valley north of Golden Gate 15 miles so traveling down the Penninsula is not something we do regularly. However, my CPA, Italian, is in San Mateo and I needed see him to prepare my taxes and he recommended this place. Let me say that dining for us these days is not just the food but the... More

I ate here with a business colleague and liked it a lot. I'm not sure I agree with the others who give it four or five stars, but it's definitely a nice Italian joint. The decor is minimalist modern, the bar seats about 10 or so. Reservations are a must, this place gets full fast, and you can only make... More

We were having a hard time finding places open late in Palo Alto, and these guys were perfect. Great pizza and the staff was very friendly and helpful.
