“Great California Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Terzo is one of our favorite restaurants in San Francisco, and perhaps our biggest go-to recommendation for people visiting the city. The restaurant is probably best described as Mediterranean, but they utilize local ingredients (as great SF restaurants tend to do). For its quality, Terzo is very affordable. We recommend ordering several small plates and one entree (or just all small plates). We particularly enjoyed their bruschetta, mozzarella di bufala, meatballs, and fettucine. The rice pudding was also very good for dessert. One note, the back room can get a bit loud and warm, so try to sit closer to the front.

“Tapas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

My friend who lives in the city wanted to eat here so they made reservations. Everything was delicious. The server was knowledgeable and helpful. We started with the humus and asparagus (split between 4 as appetizers). 3 of us got the Mahi Mahi and one got the steak. The Mahi was so flavorful and delicious, it was better than the Mahi at the seafood restaurants where I live in Newport Beach. Highly recommend eating here!

“Great locals restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

We were recommended to come to this restaurant by a local photographer and it turned out to be a real gem. Really busy on a Thursday night - we we were lucky to get a table straight away - which shows you how popular it is! Great atmosphere and all of the sharing plates were great, but a special mention has to go to the flourless chocolate, which was to die for! We were surprised at how reasonable the price was too, as the whole bill came to $130 including wine. We'll definitely come back here next time we're in San Fran!

“Terzo= An Unforgettable Food Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

Recently my husband and I were treated to a most amazing meal @ "Terzo". Everything on the " Small Plates" section of the menu was delivered to our table, over the course of the evening, and it was one of the best food experiences that we have ever had. Each dish was absolutely delicious and left us anxiously awaiting the arrival of the next. Not only was it scrumptious ... It was FUN!!! By the way...The wine selection and desserts were equally as impressive and the service was impeccable. So... If you're going to San Francisco... wear some flowers, in your hair, and ... Be sure to reserve a table at Terzo!
