Terzo is one of those delightful gems hiding in plain sight. The interior and staff is friendly & welcoming with a really good wine list. Small plates are lots of fun to try and easily shared. Starters: We tried em' all: definitely Hummus w/house Pita...wedges, the great Roasted Vegetables w/molasses, Roasted Broccoli , the Butternut Squash Soup arrives hot & flavorful and Apple Bruschetta is a must. Entres: Definitely share the Linguinie w/Mushrooms, the Skirt Steak & Moroccan Chicken. Note : it can be very busy but the staff tries very hard to be on top of things!More

exciting and delicious food combinations. Service is a bit slow at times. We enjoyed very much the grilled calamari, the risotto, the grilled chicken, the fish entree, and the grilled vegetables. The almond cake and panacotta were great

We went for restaurant week, the place was busy already at 6PM, but we were greeted warmly and sat at the bar for a glass of wine prior to being seated. Our waitress timed out our dinner beautfully- 3 courses of two different dishes turned...our meal into a lovely experience of sharing 6 delightfully prepared dishes of fresh, thoughtful food. Wine pairing included in the reasonable price of $67 per person, but small pours so we did order additional glasses. Terrific meal and experience.More

This intimate Cow Hollow neighborhood restaurant is just amazing. What an incredible array of dishes -- all brilliantly prepared, and all interesting and varied. And, my understanding is that the menu changes often, if not daily because ingredients are selected for their freshness and availability....Many are farm- sourced. The portions, even tapas size, are quite generous. Among the dishes we shared was hummus with home baked pita bread, arugula salad, moroccan chicken, roasted brussel sprouts and squash - an incredibly delicious preparation that would inspire even a non-veggie diner, and calamari. Dessert was also excellent. You can't go wrong here. I only wish I lived n the neighborhood and could come often.More

Found this great neighborhood restaurant and came away totally impressed. Octopus and lentils had a deep depth of flavor. My wife had the flank steak and loved it! I had the mahi mahi and it was delicious! Paired a beautiful Merlot -Cab (her) and a...French chenin blanc (me). The flourless chocolate cake was mouthwatering. Great atmosphere-elegant, stylish, and comfortable.More

I asked a friend who lives in Cow Hollow for his favorite local spot - so we could have a nice dinner on our way home from Sonoma. He characterized this one as having great food for a reasonable price, with a good wine list....He was spot on. Our dinner for two with three glasses of wine ($15-$18 each) was $118 not including tip. There is a larger area to the front, then a narrow area (where we sat) and then a more brightly lit room at the back. It had a great neighborhood feel - the waiter seemed to know lots of the patrons, but we got great service regardless. When I wasn't sure of the wine to choose, he quickly brought tastes of the two I was considering. We shared eggplant on crispy polenta, and then had a spicy linguini dish and a Moroccan chicken (thigh and drumstick, succulent meat easily came off the bone, with a lovely, delicate flavor) with some veggies and rice. A fun, cozy experience.More

Terzo is one of those rare gems that blend delicious food, great service and cool surrounds. Located on a Union Street, Terzo is handy to the Marina district, Cow Hollow and Pacific Heights. The reception is warm and the service attentive. We shared various tapas...lates and all were excellent, but the gnocchi was a standout. Best I have had anywhere. We would certainly return.More

A great place to go for a local experience if you are staying in the marina area or on Lombard Street. Very inconspicuous and they make you feel great. Good wine list to go with the menu.

We travel to San Francisco annually. We have our regular great restaurants to visit. We alway try one new location each year. For 2019, we tried Terzo. Terzo exceeded our expectations, by a wide margin. My wife and I were not certain what a Morocco,...Spain, Italy and France inspired food might look like. Our curiosity led us to Terzo and the food was spectacular. We started with the arugula salad. Terzo served that with chunks of cheese and nuts. The salad was lightly dressed and very fresh. Next we selected the meatballs and polenta. This was a 10 out of 10 appetizer. The polenta was creamy and the meatballs were not overworked or packed too tightly. For my entree, I accepted the waitress's recommendation of the Moroccan stye braised chicken. She was spot on because the combination of dark meat, moroccan seasonings, basmati rice, nuts and yogurt was amazing. I would not try this restaurant without someone at the table ordering this entree! My wife selected the linguine with house made sausage. I noticed my wife was a tad quiet after being served her entree--once I tasted the pasta I figured out she was busy enjoying the food!! Both entrees were home runs. We selected the apple crisp for dessert and Terzo made this outing a clean sweep. Warm and fresh ingredients with a local ice cream shop's excellent vanilla ice cream. We visited Terzo in February, thus it was not busy. We enjoyed a split booth and the restaurant had a nice Goldilock's ambiance--active enough to be interesting, but not too loud and not too busy. Terzo is now firmly fixed on the annual must visit restaurants in San Francisco.More
