Excellent food and great atmosphere. Wasn't too expensive and the staff was very polite and helpful. Was able to make a same day reservation.

“Excellent food, self-righteous owners”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

The food here is wonderful, they make everything fresh, and stress organic, minimum chemical ingredients. The atmosphere is hopping, quite appropriate for casual Italian dining. And the wine list is uniquely chosen - a celebration of Italy. Many people love the pizzas here yet my favourite dishes are the truffled sausage pasta (usually found as a special), the beef carpacio, and the fresh fish served at their affiliate locations. What I hate about Terroni is the forced and inflexible delivery of its menu items. You are not allowed to have balsamic vinegar, you are not allowed to have cheese on some dishes, the list of rules goes on and on as these pretentious owners say my way or the highway to anybody who might potentially ruin their ode to the home country. And it doesn't matter if your wife is pregnant and cannot eat certain foods - there is no concern for your opinion if it differs from theirs. The terrible service ranking here is a reflection of this, not of their faithful wait staff.

“Don't believe the hype”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Service- If the restaurant was extremely busy, I would have understood the fact that our waitress was generally absent throughout the meal. However, we ate early (around 5pm), so the restaurant was not busy at all. For the price of the food, I expected better service.

I also found it strange that even though most of the tables in the restaurant were empty, the hostess seated another party at the table beside us. Given the fact that the tables are only about 2 feet apart, this made the rest of our dinner a little awkward.

Food- Just okay. I ordered the duck ravioli and my boyfriend had a pizza. The pizza was good, but nothing special. The duck ravioli was bland, and I couldn't taste any of the ingredients that were supposed to be in it. They do not slice their pizza, so you have to eat it with a fork and knife. This would be fine, except the crust is too hard to cut, so we were left trying to hack it apart.

Also, the portion sizes are quite small. We had to eat again later in the night.

Value- For the price of the entrees ($15-$20), and the price of drinks ($8 for 400mL of beer), we expected far better service and food quality.

Atmosphere- The restaurant definitely has an Italian atmosphere and is very interesting to look at it. The tables may be a little close together which makes conversation awkward.

Terroni is always a solid choice for lunch or dinner. Food is consistently good and the wine list is interesting.

“two different restaurants”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

this is the Yonge street location. I prefer the tapas menu on the main floor which is very creative, and more intimate. Upstairs is very noisy, and the food is more tradiitionally italian.
