Terzo is that kind of restaurant that delights on food, atmosphere and service each time we go. Not overbearing in any way, just does it well whether it's a Tuesday or a Friday night. My wife and I sat at the bar and had the hummus, chicken, meatballs and homemade pasta. Each well presented, on time, and delicious. Bartender was... More

Went there for an early dinner- loved the food and great collection of wine! I liked that they had a lot of natural/organic options. Ambience was great too.

This restaurant is very close to our friends' home - so it was a no brainer when we decided to meet up while on vacation in San Francisco. The staff was incredibly welcoming and friendly, the wine was top notch and the food was delicious! There is parking available if you have a car, and we will certainly be back!

Perfect dinner after a long day of walking. Small plates to share, and even standard dishes had an interesting twist. Our waiter was excellent, overall a great experience.

The menu is a variety of Italian /American fusion. The price per plate is not that expensive. This fine dining resto is world class. Highly recommended!

We visited Terzo while staying in SF. It was by far a highlight! The food was outstanding, and the waiter was excellent. The place was packed, so make a reservation at least 24 hrs. ahead of time.

We love the laid-back and relaxed Marina area so we were excited to try Terzo. It lived up to its great reviews! The restaurant was busy (we had reservations) but we never felt rushed or neglected. Our server was EXCEPTIONAL and patiently answered all of our questions, giving recommendations when asked. The hubby and I shared a variety of small... More

Visited Terzo on a Saturday night. It's a lovely restaurant in a quiet area. The place was buzzing with people and had a good atmosphere. Food was delicious and fresh - lots of choice for any taste - the skirt steak was a standout. Had some good local wines as well. My only small criticism was that the service was... More

It is in a nice neighborhood. The service is great and the staff is really helpful. We ordered the calamari, the wild salmon and the fussili and everything was great. Excellent wines. Good value in price for San Francisco.

Terzo, meaning third in Italian, and connoting a third place to gather and share food & wine, was inspired by our travels around the Mediterranean. After running Rose Pistola and Rose's Cafe successfully for years, we wanted to bring an authentic, upscale, European neighborhood restaurant to Cow Hollow. Terzo is a beautiful combination of modern and cozy. Chef/Co-owner, Mark Gordon creates food inspired by the coastal regions around the Mediterranean Sea, sourced from our bountiful local farms and ranches. the menu consistes of daily changing small and large plates, with many vegetarian options. The eclectic and diverse wine list is attractively priced, draws from regions all over the world, and is designed to pair perfectly with the cuisine. Please join us for an exceptional neighborhood dining experience and your private dining needs.

Staying in Marina District

Neighborhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.
