The place is beautiful and the food is great but the service was horrible. Our waitress acted like she didn’t want to be there. She went to get water and never came back. We kept asking the other waiters if they could find her for us. Needless to say service was super slow since she was never there and never came to check on us. We actually shared our drinks with each other because we couldn’t order more drinks because she was never there. Just awful! I won’t go there again.

This is the only Terroni where the service is very, very bad. Very slow. I will never go back to this location again.

Great venue, loved eating on the terrasse. The noise level was manageable, was surprised at how loud it was inside when we walked through the restaurant to leave. Enjoyed the pizza but would have enjoyed more if you had chili oil instead of olive oil and chili flakes.

I love Terroni. Very consistent and if you don't take your left overs from a large group they donate them to a Women's shelter next door. Very cool, no one likes wasting food.

Was put in the basement of the reastraunt , very dark and loud down there. I was unhappy with the table we were out at as people were walking bye regularly and rubbing against me on there way to the washroom, had a great surver she moved us to a different table where people were not walking bye regularly . Food was great just unhappy with the basement being soo dark and noisy no music only could hear other people loud conversations.

Food was incredible, but staff was rude. We never got our bread basket, we were seated too close to the bar, salad course and dinner came at the same time, etc, etc. They missed on the details. Despite the great food, I would not return.

Terroni Adelaide has been a go to for years but the last visit was really disappointing. Reservation was made well in advance to ensure a good table which we did get. Despite instructions that we were interested in leisurely dining we were food and beverage blitzed and out the door in 62 minutes. The steak I ordered was left on the plate with clear visibility of the gristle making about 1/3 of it inedible. My two companions both had meals totally in keeping with Terroni standards.

Lovely restaurant with a great selection of food and drink items (and the food/drinks were DELICIOUS). Service was great, our server was Adam. He was very attentive to us (we were a party of 9, celebrating a bride-to-be at her bachelorette), made great recommendations, very personable, and made our time at the restaurant extremely enjoyable!

Would definitely recommend.

While the restaurant is beautiful and our server was kind and welcoming, I was disappointed in the quality of food as were some of my party guests. We were expecting something very different with our meals and the dessert menu was not all imaginative. I unfortunately will not be returning to Terroni's.

We went to Terroni Adelaide twice and the food was excellent and the service was outstanding both times we were there. The only slightly negative was the noice level in the basement Friday, it was really difficult to talk. But overall, highly recommended👍👍 Ewa and Gunnar Moberg from Sweden

Hi Gunnar, thank you so much for your review! Terroni Adelaide tends to be a lively location and Summer season makes it even busier. We recommend checking out our more quiet and intimate location, La Bettola di Terroni, located a few steps away at 106 Victoria Street. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you again at Terroni!

We have always enjoyed Terroni's food and service, however, our experience this time was a disappointment.

The truffle risotto was nothing more than white rice in water more of like a soup. The server tried to replace it, but the gnocchi was over cooked and mushy. Nobody ate it! Service was on the slower side. The wine was however delicious; the sommelier a pleasure to talk to. We all left disappointed

Our bread came but there was no bread plate. Our food arrived and the server did not ask if we would like fresh ground pepper nor was there a spoon offered for the spaghetti pasta dish ordered. I feel these are basic offerings at any Italian restaurant. This was not a super busy time as we were there for a 5:30PM reservation, dinner before a concert.

Hi there, thank you for your review. We follow traditional Italian standards of service where spoons are not served with pasta and pizza dishes. We offer pepper to any customer that requests it. Thank you!

I used to go there quite often but I guess this was my last visit there.
I invited friends. from abroad, unfortunately they put us at a table upstairs where the ambiance is completely different than downstairs. The pizza we ordered was cold. They started turning the chairs on to the tables before the last guest left.
If it wasn’t for the friendly waitress who served us we would have left much earlier.
Thank you

Hi Brooke, thank you so much for your review about our food, service, and ambiance! Another recommendation we can give for a date night is our sister restaurant, La Bettola di Terroni, located on 106 Victoria St. La Bettola is a more intimate dining space with a menu curated by our Sicilian chef and different from any of our Terroni locations. We look forward to seeing you again!

Tough spaghetti. How do you screw up spaghetti ?
Great place if you want to sit 12 inches from other couples on both sides. I know this is a thing...but not in my book. I want enjoy just the conversation with my wife. So really, a disappointment.

Everything was perfect but we waited over an hour in between appetizers and our entre. Our waiter was very apologetic but it definitely ruined the flow with friends. By the time our food came out we were full. They kept filling us up on bread.

I normally love Terroni and have always had great experiences until Sunday. It seemed like they were under-staffed. We waited over 2 hours to receive our main course, and after speaking with the manager, no one followed up with us or addressed any of the concerns that we hadn't seen our waiter in an hour. Really too bad as normally service is good but this was a horrible experience.

Service was extremely long between the meals. The manager went to speak to the couple at the table next to mine to explain the delays caused by a lack of staff that night. He apologized for the long service and offered them a free dessert. I wish he could have come to us as well as we got there I’d say 15 minutes before the other couple. Apart from that the food was good but not extraordinary.
