I ordered a $22 dollar, Caprese di Bufala salad. From the description on the menu and the price; fresh buffalo milk mozzarella, marinated cherry tomatoes, olive bread crumbs, micro basil; I was expecting a large portion. It literally was a ball of mozzarella and a few tomatoes. This was not a sufficient meal at all. Also, I sat with a large group close to the window in the front and was freezing and had to wear my jacket for the entire meal. I would not recommend this place to my friends or family at all.

We love Terroni, however it was our first time taking our 3.5 year old, and they really aren’t kid-friendly.
We ordered his “kid” pasta first before anything else, and the plain pasta with olive oil arrived after almost everything else we’d ordered, defeating the need to have done so, so quickly. Also, they have a super strange rule in the kitchen if not allowing plain pasta to be sent to a table with a separate bowl of tomato sauce. Do they not know that 3 year olds need to add the sauce themselves ?!?!
And then to make things just a teeny more non-kid friendly, the pasta was $15 and came without anything else. No ice-cream, fruit or any drink.
Next time we’ll just order off the menu for our little and avoid the super-lengthy and kinda expensive “kid” food.

Honestly, all the food is great and well prepared, but there are small children and people in sweat pants dining beside you. Finding fresh gnocchi isn’t hard in Toronto in 2020. As a result, Terroni on Queen ends up feeling like an upscale Eastside Mario’s.

You’re better off going across the street to Noce for better food and ambience.

This was my second visit to Terroni on Queen. I took friends from out of town this time....and it didn't disappoint. The food is outstanding...far superior to anywhere else I've been in the price range and our server was wonderful. Wonderful relaxed atmosphere adds to the enjoyment. We'll be back.

I always love the food at Terroni but the service is always sooo bad the staff isn’t very personable and they are not wiling to provide top notch service considering it’s supposed to be an elevated restaurant

Not the place for me. Hosting staff were abrupt, table service was sub par and not attentive...empty plates in front of us forever etc. Oddly Staff in general are very visibly trying to husher you out within an alotted time even though there are no other reservations. The food was bland - my gnocchi was soggy and my friends partadella was dry.

Normally I love Terroni but our service wasn't very good. We could barely get our servers attention and she didn't even bring out bread basket till we asked closer to the end of the meal. The oil that comes with it also came much later. The dish I ordered was also quite mediocre. Pretty disappointed with my experience.

Decent Italian restaurant. The service at our table was not as attentive as we expected. We visited for the birthday but did not see a gesture From the restaurant to indicate it, just a regular service. A glass of wine or desert would have been nice for us to keep us coming back to the restaurant.

One of my favourite spots for Italian in the city. Reasonable prices yet delicious food. The only request I would make is that scissors are provided for the pizza. It makes for a difficult slice, especially when sharing with multiple people.

The food was great but the tables are so close together. It’s difficult to sit and it feels like you’re having conversations with the people around you, so it’s a bit uncomfortable.

Great restaurant! I've been going here periodically, (more often for my lunch when I used to work at Coupe Bizzarre) since being introduced to Terroni, by a former boyfriend. We were seated on time for our reservation. Food was fantastic. I gave a 4 star overall rating because the amount of wine my girlfriend got for $12/glass was pitiful!!! It honestly looked like the wine was measured out in a 2 oz. shot glass!

Hi JennH, thank you for your review. We measure all of our wine by the glass at the standard pour of 5oz. Please also note we use larger style wine glasses at Terroni which may have given the appearance of a smaller amount. A manager is always on duty to assist guests with immediate needs or concerns. We hope you consider returning in the future. Have a nice day.

I have been to many Terroni locations (including this one several times). The food this time was sub-par and disappointing. Both my companion and I were disappointed as they seemed to be scrimping on the toppings (on pizza) and sauce on pasta (i.e. there were virtually none). MEH. Maybe it was an off day? Server did not inquire as to why we didn't finish our food, despite it being clear that we barely ate. Wasn't in the mood to complain in person.
