“Good food uneven service”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Have dined there three times in the last year and do enjoy the food. Expansive contemporary dining room tastefully decorated and usually crowded. "Italchos " Italian nachos a tasty start, love them with goat cheese. Escargot a good choice also. Have tried Chicken Terilli, marsala and fettuccini alfredo and all are good. Live music, though sometimes a little loud, is an added bonus. Only complaint is uneven service in three visits....just never know who you will get

“The Mezzanine is Top Notch”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

So you are looking for a place to have a party, a business meeting or dinner a gathering or some sort...and you are in "east Dallas" - you are aiming for Lower Greenville area. There are not a lot of places with such indoor accommodations for a lot of people. Terrili's Mezzanine is a well designed space that can handle easily 50+ persons, has it's own bar, wide screen TV and a fireplace.

They were easily able to accomodate our gathering of 15 - all separate checks. One server/bartender who was the most professional I have ever encountered in the city ( no joke).

Food - I had a vegetable lasagne. I did not order the lasagne expecting it to blow me away. It was good. Despite some noodles not cooked all the way through i would get it again as the sauce was not overly sweet. But when I return what I want to try are the Italian Nachos on the starter menu. They looked better in presentation ( and smelled delicious) than they sounded to me.

Terilli's was always a good place for business lunches and dinners despite it's obvious romantic atmosphere. Still is.

“Terilli's Always Worth a Visit”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Terilli's is an institution in Dallas. Order Italcho's to start, Jalapeno Soup, and the Chicken Terilli with half cream/ half spicy tomato. Capellini D'Angelo is also always good. People watching on the front patio is perfect, and you can just hear the live music from inside, but still converse easily. Or, go to the rooftop and have a drink with Tom, who runs the bar up there and is another Dallas institution. Be nice to the door people and they will treat you well.

“A real Dallas treasure...”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

This is a beautiful and essential part of our Dallas landscape.. The Rooftop bar is spectacular. The food in soooo good. The night we were there they had a piano player that was wonderful.
I had chicken pasta that was delicious. My hubby had the filet and said it was one of the best hes had. Try this restaurant, try the roof..i hope you love it as much as we did:-)
