About
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. Our chefs create 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

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.
