We came here for our team’s Christmas lunch and the food was great. In terms of service, our server was good, however, he and some other staff stepped on my colleague’s foot without saying sorry.

The restaurant 1-/ way too loud and we had to scream across the table.

We had our department Holiday lunch at Terroni yesterday. Our only complaint was about our seating location. We were nine people crammed into a makeshift table just inside the main doors. Unfortunately, every time the doors were opened a rush of very cold air would descend upon us It was bad enough that we were chilled but our delicious meals became cold quite quickly.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant as long as we were seated in another area.

Hi - we had a major issue with our experience. One of our folks didn't get his food until we were finished eating ours. As the team leader for this group, I was embarrassed as this happened to our newest hire on our team. The server was nice about it and he comped our coffees, but only 3 of us had coffee - and the person who was forgotten didn't order coffee or dessert. :(

We had a significant bill and 2 bottles of wine, so I really expected better.

Thanks, Samantha Sannella 416.436.1095

on the 3rd level. Noisier than we thought (ground floor is way too noisy). Despite 4-6 wait staff and what appeared to be a sommelier (in grunge jeans and shirt.. very unprofessional), service was very very slow. and we got there with only a couple of tables full. wine delivery took too long. Had to call waiter (when i could find him) twice.
Despite what seemed to be quite an Italian wine selection, could have had more Tuscan variety.
Food was okay
Honestly, wasnt the most impressive visit.

Food and ambience was great, it was my first time dinning here. The service was not the best; the server didn’t make any recommendations, didn’t introduce himself, and felt distant. Other than the service everything else was great.

There are too many options in the city to go somewhere and have to wait 10-15 minutes for anyone to come by the table once being seated with menus and to take drink orders. I didn't like their inflexibility with menu items, and found the pasta (while tasty) was a poor value. A bowl of GF noodles with tomato sauce and a few leaves of basil for $20 and no opportunity to add protein to it was disappointing. I'm glad we went because this was highly recommended to me, and now we know.

Unfortunately the order was wrong for the main course and we had to wait for one of the meals to arrive. Typically restaurants will bring all of the meals at the same time if this happens but they did not do this and expected some guests to eat without others having their meal.

Food was amazing and the wine outstanding. Our server was excellent and very helpful with wine and food selection. We love it there. Was a little on the loud side - this seems to be a trend in Toronto that is hopefully soon to be addressed as it is nice to have conversation without shouting - does not affect quality or overall experience just really obnoxious in general. Would still 100% recommend Terroni Adelaide. Going back next Saturday with a group of friends and looking forward to it!

I have always liked Terroni’s both on Adelaide and uptown. The outdoor patios are both very good and have enough spacing for guests to have a private conversation.
I felt like we were jammed into a table right beside other guests. The tables appeared to be spaced about a foot apart, thus creating significant concerns about privacy and noise. I don’t really want to sit right beside strangers on a business lunch.

Food was fantastic, but the service was poor. Took close to 30 mins to even place our order, another 15-20 for our glasses of wine to come, and another 20-25 mins after that for our food to arrive. At the end of our meal, our server asked us if we'd like to see the dessert menu. I said yes, but then our server never brought it. Took another 20 mins to flag down someone, who we later found out was the bartender, to get our bill. Throughout this, we saw that our server was very attentive to a different group (about 6 people) with older clientele that ordered a couple bottles of wine and would presumably leave a larger tip. While I understand that the larger table would be the priority, having been a server myself, there needs to be a balance, and not completely neglecting your other tables. Also realized around the end of our meal that we did not get the first basket of bread that is supposed to be complimentary.
I truly did enjoy the food and would highly recommend the pasta (Tonnarelli alla Norcina), and the atmosphere was quite nice, but I would not go back after this experience on a Tuesday night.

The food was excellent. A glass of wine is too expensive.
Most problematic was the very close proximity of our table to those of other diners. For example, we needed to pick up and hold our wine glasses so the patron exiting the neighbouring table didn't knock them over with her butt. We also had a difficult time exiting our table, trying to prevent our belongings such as winter coats, dragging through food at the neighbouring tables. This negatively affected our experience; I would strongly recommend some tables be removed so diners have more privacy.

Hi cyn9, Terroni on Adelaide is a multi-level location thats hosts many large parties and events which can result in a festive environment, especially during the holiday season. For a quiet space, our off-times are between 2-4. For a more intimate setting please consider visiting our sister locations nearby, Sud Forno or La Bettola di Terroni. We hope you consider returning.

Had to move seats twice as reservations put us in difficult spots.
It was our 23 rd wedding anniversary and waitress was ok but likely had too many tables to serve.
We had to send app back as wasn’t hot and came very quickly after ordering so maybe was for another table. Beer was room temperature but being European myself I drank it anyway, but would have requested cold if didn’t already send app back.
Overall generally love the food and environment but it must have been an overbooked night or troubles behind the scenes.
Hope to try again in the near future
