Have been a long time Terroni patron and have been going there for over 10 year but have fond that the quality of food has been going down over the last couple of years. The meal was quite disappointing.

A bit of a premium for the Terroni name that’s not supported by food and service. Tables too crammed and noisy. Pizza fairly good as expected, drinks pricey.

Our only drawback is we got a table in the corner kind of out of the way. The ambiance looked a bit better in the main part of the restaurant. The food was outstanding and the service was great. I'd go again and
just ask for a better table.

I've always had a great meal and experience at Terrroni. This time was really bad starting with service, very snooty welcome from server. We were coming from an event and were hungry, the server told us we cannot have bread until we order our meal...(we were there to do so...) Once our pasta arrived it was incredibly salty, we asked to have another made hoping it was an accident. After getting some attitude from the server he brought us the pasta and it was saltier than the first one. At that point we had it packed to go. I wanted to have my boyfriend at home try it so that I'm not imagening...he also confirmed that it was incredibly salty. Again, very disappointing.

Our experience at Terroni was not good. Two people got the carbonara special and thought the pancetta tasted bad (not necessarily spoiled, just not good) and it was underseasoned and just had no flavour. I had the Nizzarda salad. It was mostly arugala with only a few tiny slices of potato and a tomatoes for colour. I could certainly whip up something much better at home. The server was engaging and friendly and the location is good, but there are countless restaurants that I'd go to before Terroni. I'm sorry, but I'd go hungry before I stop there again.

Very happy with my time at Terroni! The wait staff were truly excellent. Attentive without being intrusive. The food came out at perfect times and was delicious. The decor isn't super fancy or modern, but I think that's the intention. The focus is the food which is certainly evident!

Colossal disappointment. Food luke-warm, overly oily and mucky.
I’d try it once more since in the past it was very good. Maybe this place has had its hay day and now it’s time to retire.

Great food, one of the best Italian spots in Toronto. Only complaint is that they put the tables so close together, you feel like you’re having dinner with the people beside you. It was awkwardly close, made it hard to have an enjoyable conversation with my wife.

Everything was good except one meal (birthday guest) was missing an ingredient in her dish. Another guest’s lamb was cold and when it was returned, most of the other 12 of us were finished eating. A third person in our group’s lasagna was cold but she ate it without returning it for warming.
The service was very good, our waitress was helpful and selected a great wine for us.
All else was good but for $1100 meal it would have been great if we all ate what we ordered together, without issue.

I was told by a friend that Terroni is an institution and a must visit place for any celebrations and Italian food. The bread was too hard to chew, food came to us was cold, and the experience wasn't what I was expecting. There are a number of good Italian food places in Toronto that serve authentic food but Terroni at Queen Street is definitely not one of them. I am not going to try out other locations to change my opinion.

Terroni - Queen
Responded on November 15, 2019

Hi there, thank you for your review. We do consider Terroni as an authentic Italian institution since 1992. Our bread is made in house daily, our flour is imported from a third generation family run mill in the Marche region of Italy and our olive oil is made of 100% Coratina olives and made by a family friend in Italy who has many fields dedicated to the its production just for us. We go through great lengths to provide the best quality ingredients to our guests :)

What I appreciated the most was the fact that they read my request and ensured we had a space that worked for the two children we had with us and they included a high chair. They also made sure our food came to the table very promptly. This is why I am so loyal to them, over 10 years now. This location is wonderful.

Food came incredibly fast - we were going to order wine but the food came after one sip of the cocktail! Kind of a shame. I guess we should have ordered an appetizer to stretch out the meal. Food was good though - can’t really go wrong with the pizza and pastas!

Everything was good except our server. He genuinely did not care. He didn't even want to recommend or mention their most popular dishes. Type of attitude you don't from anyone and you get it from your server on a night you are celebrating something :/

Great food, great service.
However upon booking the reservation and arriving on time our table was delayed. We waited 20min to then be told the table was still not available. We were starving so the only table open was right by the door and it was a little chilli.
