Less than an hour off the BC ferry from Tsawassen, we were seated at Il Terrazzo, eagerly anticipating another wonderful meal. We were not disappointed.
Fresh greens topped with prawns and scallops, another salad with chicken, crab and salmon cakes (again, over fesh greens) and a hearty pasta and spicy sausage dish were the best welcome imaginable to Victoria. A bottle of riesling from their award-winning wine list topped it off to perfection.

We ended up eating here our last night because we hadn't made a reservation the night beofre and I couldn't wait to eat.

The room is crowded and a little noisy, but it is an Italian restaurant. The service was very attentive, but not intrusive, the food was absolutle wonderful and priced quite fairly. Pay attention to the house specials.

If we had been in Victoria a couple of more nights, we'd have been back.

El Terrazo is excellent. The food, the service, the atmosphere, the prices, the portions and the list goes on. I have been here many times, and have brought friends and family on numerous occasions and always receive rave reviews from them as well.

This was a great find and really by accident as we walked down a small narrow walkway and found it led to wonderful Italian Restaurant. We were walking back to our hotel after breakfast and found IL Terrazzo and stopped in to make reservations because looking in the windows was so charming. Their greeting was very friendly (although it was still morning and they were not open) and we were able to make reservations for dinner that evening. When we returned they remembered us from earlier that morning and we were seating at one of the few remaining available tables. Service was very friendly and professional and the food was outstanding. Water and bread was filled as needed and the the restaurants wine selection was wonderful. The dining experience was great and I only wish we had found it a few day earlier in our vacation.

Celebrated my birthday on a rainy afternoon but was warmed with the service and food; began with focaccia with olive tapenade, salad and scallops (spaghettini con capesante) and ended with sweet treats...pastry chef's choice which included torta di linone, cheesecake and tiramisu...what a celebration of food! We'll be back next time we are in town.
