Terroni Adelaide, formerly the York County Courthouse, is a multi-level heritage structure built in 1852. Just inside the doors is the Enoteca with its towering columns, a great spot for cocktails. Beyond is the main dining room, with a sunlit atrium, fireplaces on each end and private rooms all serviced by an open kitchen where our chefs prepare traditional Italian fare. In summer, the secret garden patio opens for al fresco dining in the heart of the city.

Head down to the Cantina Wine Cellar where you will see the original courthouse cells now used to store our Italian wine. The second floor houses the grand Sala da Pranzo and Bar delle Carceri, named after the cells below. Il Covo degli Artisti, our third-floor space is a cosy lounge once home to The Arts and Letters Club where Canadian landscape painters “The Group of Seven” ate and drank in 1909.

    Too noisy. We have been there before, but later in the evening, so we could understand the noise. But this was specifically early (had booked 5:30, arrived 5:15) and it was too noisy for our taste. The room reverberates noise. At least the music was not totally deafening. But I could not hear my wife across the small table.

    Our server, Danielle, set the tone for the evening. She was personable, knowledgeable and helpful. Eventhough the restaurant was very busy, she was very attentive and was able to attend to us in a prompt and professional manner. It was a wonderful experience made even better because of her. Thank you for making it a special evening for my out of town family! We will definitely be back!

    I was hoping to be seated upstairs and not in the wine cellar next to the exit door. I booked this reservation a month in advance and was not asked my preference. Bringing people from out of town, I had hoped a better spot. My fault for not double checking but next time you may want to confirm with larger parties and people’s preferences.

    Yummy food as always but unfortunately poor service that really impacted the experience. Our server was not helpful with drinks, didn’t bring any bread until we asked half way through the meal, got our order wrong and then left one of us sitting with no food and one with our food getting cold while we waited for the other item to be corrected.

    Terroni's on Adelaide is amazing! The history of the building itself along with fantastic food make this a go to for us when in the city. What puts it "over the top"...the staff! Cascia and Roland were 2 of the most attentive and informative wait staff we have ever had! We will be back for sure!

    Service was great, friendly, fast. Food was alright - oddly enough there was too much parmeseano reggiano on my pasta, which really interacted poorly with the greens. The reason why my rec is so low is the insane noise level we experienced - there was a DJ playing house music so loud the chairs were vibrating. We couldn't hear each other and had to text each other to talk. literally have no idea why you needed a DJ for dinner service...

    They won’t let you substitute pasta types in the dishes. Also the wine list is on the VERY expensive side. They did have some moderately priced bottles on the specials menu. I would appreciate more choices and lower prices. Not all of us have a sophisticated pallet.

    Highly recommend. The server was amazing and we really enjoyed the atmosphere. We arrived at 5:45 on a Friday so it was quiet to start, but then got busy. The mushroom salad was amazing. I didn't love the seafood pasta, but it was pretty good nonetheless. The hazelnut tiramisu was delicious! My husband enjoyed the spicy sausage and gorgonzola pizza. Wine and coffee were great too.

    Very disappointed in the service. We were attending an event nearby. We sat down and advised server we had 1:20 before we had to leave and he cofirmed it would not be a problem. 10 mins before we had to leave he came out and said food would be out in “under 120 seconds”. 5 minutes later we walked out as food still had not arrived. Very disappointing.

    Their version of Al dente pasta was almost crunchy. Pasta needed another minute to cook. I understand they need to run a profitable business but the food came out feeling rushed. We had almost no time to enjoy a pre dinner cocktail when food and wine arrived and were had two drinks each. Potato pizza was ok, not much potato. Manzo dish was good as was the duck confit ravioli.

    We’re in Toronto for a few days, first time at Terroni Adelaide with wife and daughter. Amazing experience overall. Reserved with OpenTable app, arrived right on time and didn’t wait for to be seated. Sergei was excellent…kind, smiling, patient, and gave us really good advice on everything, from cocktails to the meal and wine pairing. Ambience is great. Food is very good. Pastas were Al Dente, tasteful and without salt prédominance which you often have in cheap meals to cover the lack of flavour. Beef carpaccio was to die for and fried calamari with only a lemon on the side (again no sauce to hide the lack of flavour) was light and fluffy as it should. Highly recommend. Total cost : 285$ for a party of 3, including taxes and 20% tip. Fair value.
