Terroni - Queen
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.
Favorite for over 20 years. No fake news here. Winning!
I plan to make Terroni a regular stop! Next time: the funghi absoluti!
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.
Gawwwddddamnnnn, that pizza is delicious there, any kind, we went twice over the weekend, very happy with the pie
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.
Terroni is usually excellent. Their pizza’s should be outstanding but recently we have found that the toppings on the pizza are slim and barren. Not great.
Hi there, thank you for your feedback. We will share your comments with our manager and chef at Terroni on Queen. Please note a manager is always on duty to assist our guests with immediate needs and to resolve any concerns you may have. Thank you and have a nice day!
While we love the ambience, and that Terroni is a Toronto classic, unfortunately our pizzas arrived lukewarm and our gnocchi was rather bland.
Hi AlecK, thank you for your 4-star review. We will be sharing your comments and feedback with our chef from Terroni on Queen. Please note a manager is always on duty to assist with immediate guest issues or concerns.
The food was good, waitress snippy and in a hurry, noisy hard to have a conversation.
Hi Debra, thank you for your review. We apologize that the service was not up to standards during your visit with us. This is not what we expect for our guests. We will review your feedback with our management team. Thanks and have a nice day :)
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!
Hi Eater, thank you for your comments. We will share this information with our management team for review. Thanks again and we hope to see you back soon :)
Waited 30 min for main course at a 5pm reservation
Cavatelli bolognese with lamb was outstanding. Wonderful selection of wines to pair with dinner. And, the flourless chocolate cake with ganache and pistachio gelato out of this world.
Hi HWood, thank you for appreciating our signature items at Terroni. We hope to see you back soon for more!
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 :/
Will go again hope to have a better experience.
Our server was really personable and funny, which we really appreciated. The atmosphere is fun and boisterous, though a bit too loud for us. Food was delicious!
Hi Michelle, thank you for your kind words. We will share these comments with our management team! We look forward to hosting you again soon :)
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.
Hi SaraD, we apologize for the delay you experienced in being seated. On busy weekends we may at times experience unnecessary delays. This could be due to other guests taking longer to dine then expected. We hope you will consider returning and know there is always a manager on duty to assist with guest needs. Thanks and have a nice day :)
Great service it was just perfect
Thank you so much for your 5-star review! We hope to see you back soon :)
Our server was great and attentive and everyone that helped us along the way was friendly. The food was very prompt despite how busy it was and was all correct and absolutely delicious.
Hi AlexB, thank you so much for your wonderful review. We're happy to hear you enjoyed your experience at Terroni! We look forward to seeing you back in the future
Excellent Italian -- the real deal, not the North American red sauce version. Each dish at table of 7 was delicious. The lamb ragout stood out.
Hi Nobs, thank you for appreciating our Italian traditions and philosophies. We hope to see you back soon
They definitely need more staff or the ones they have now need to be a lot more efficient. I brought my best friend here for her birthday and the food was awesome and the server was sweet and detail attentive but we had to wait ridiculous amount of time for every step in the dinner. I had reservations two weeks prior and was please to be seated quickly but that was the only thing quick thing that night. when we sat down we had to wait 30 minutes to place an order for our drinks and another 45 minutes to place an order for our meals. The food came out in 15 minutes which was pretty good but then again I had to wait 30 minutes and ask someone to get our waitress from the back so i could pay. A dinner that could have tooken less than an hour and some ended up taking 2 hours and a half. I guess you can say it's good for dates cuz then you guys can take all that time getting to know each other
Hi Khadra, thank you for mentioning you enjoyed the food. We will be reviewing the service aspect internally with our management team and hope you consider returning to Terroni on Queen in the future. Thanks and have a nice day
Pretty good food at what’s become a Toronto mainstay. Our service left something to be desired, though.
Hi DaveJ, thank you for your review. We will be sharing your comments with our management team at Terroni Queen to be reviewed with our staff. We hope you consider returning to Terroni for your next authentic Italian dining experience.
Everything was great but someone had barfed in the sink
Thank you for your 5-star review. We will review this with our management team.
i love coming to Terroni, and have multiple times. however, this time was different. when booking the reservation, there was no mention of a time limit.
when i arrived, the hostess told me we’d need to be out by 845pm ( reso was for 7pm).
then my other guest arrived and sat down. the server proceeded to ask if we were ready to order within a minute of her arrival!
when we were nearing the end of our meal, our server - who was nice and polite about it - told us we’d need to leave soon, as the next reservation was there. he was apologetic.
the WHOLE experience from when i walked in the door to leaving, i felt rushed.
from a business standpoint i understand, but there was no mention of this when i booked. if there had been, perhaps i would have thought twice or at least been aware.
i doubt i’d ever come dine there on a weekend evening again :(
Hi serenaw, thank you for your review. When making a reservation at Terroni Queen, open table sends our guests a confirmation e-mail with details regarding our restaurant guidelines such as the time you are given to dine with us based on your party size. For parties of two we reserve the table for 1.45 minutes. We apologize if this was not clear and will review this with management for the future. Please note a manager is always on duty to help with immediate needs or concerns. Thanks!
Pasta was great, had the truffle pasta dish. We ordered the Bistecca a la Fiorentina, the meat was cold and was very chewy, also missing flavour for the price we paid for the dish, I would not order it again. Dessert and espresso was good, Wine selection was great
Great food, good service. Lovely spot! My only suggestion would be that for a restaurant that is on the pricier side for pasta, cutlery and place settings should be cleared between courses.
Hi Tamie, thank you for your review and comments. We will be sharing this with our management team and we apologize this was not done for you. We hope to see you back soon!
We've been going to Terroni for years and always love it. We don't go as often as we used to because it has gotten expensive.
Hi Liz, thank you for your review! Our prices are reflected in the high quality of ingredients that are used in every dish. Our pasta 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 want to give our customers only the best! We hope you consider coming back soon!
Never disappoints! Our server was very attentive, knowledgeable and personable and the food was delicious!
Thank you so much for your kind words on our food and service! We look forward to your return.
Thank you for your review on our food! We hope to see you back in the near future :)
Amazing pasta, wine and the pistachio gelato! Service was superb!
Thank YOU for the superb review. We will share your comments with the management team. We hope to see you back soon :)
Terroni on Queen is one of our favourite restaurants. We drive in from Oakville just to dine there. The food is authentic and very, very fresh, just absolutely delicious. It's a popular spot though so make a reservation.
Hi Catherine, thank you for driving in from Oakville to visit Terroni. We appreciate your review and comments! We hope to see you back soon :)
Too much waiting for the simple pasta, little bit pricy, food is very good
Thank you MiladinV, we will be reviewing your comments with our management team.
Birthday celebration! Lots of fun amazing food!!
Hi Debi, thanks for celebrating your birthday with! We're so happy you had a good time. We hope to see you back at Terroni soon!
Reservation was accepted but the restaurant was closed when we arrived. Not sure if this is a restaurant issue or application issue. Not impressed either way as our party walked 15 minutes in the rain to attend.
Hi Clinton, we will address this directly with open table and our management team. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience
Thank you Stephenb! We love amazing customers like you :)
Delicious as usual. Just wish music was tad bit lower.
Hi Anonymous, thank you for your 5-star review! We appreciate all of our guests reviews and will make sure to share this feedback with out management team at Terroni Queen. Thanks again and we hope to see you back soon :)
I prefer the Adelaide location much more but the food and service is consistently good at Terroni, regardless of the location.
Hi there, thank you for your feedback and appreciating the consistency of restaurants. We hope to see you back at Terroni soon :)
We found that the whole expierence wasn’t as good as it used to be. Up front the server was good but he forgot to bring the bread , oil & peppers which we always used to get. We thought that it wasn’t offered anymore but then realized that he forgot, as we saw other tables getting it right up front.
A small thing , but something we always enjoyed .
Hi GabyR, thank you for your feedback. We will make sure to review this information with staff. Please note there is always a manager on duty to assist our guests with any immediate concerns and to turn things like this around for you on the spot. Thanks, and we hope to see you back in the future.
Unfortunately the kitchen was so fast that it was hard to enjoy the bottle of wine we ordered to accompany our appetizers and mains. Our appetizers arrived in less than 5 minutes and mains arrived shortly after our appetizers were cleared. Way too rushed for the price you pay for the food, which quite nice. Pity as it really took away from our anniversary meal.
Thank you ChrisW for your review, we care about our guest experiences. We sincerely apologize that you felt rushed and that the service was so fast on your Anniversary.It is never our intention to make any guest feel rushed. On average at Queen a party of 2 stays for 1 and a half to 2 hours. If you made a reservation and were given an out by time it would have been for 8pm. We will be reviewing this with management at Terroni Queen & hope you will consider returning again in future.
Gods food. Patio was a little bit crowded though
Hi MikeH, thank you for your review. Our patio is quite popular, especially when the weather is nice out. We hope to see you back soon!
Seated outside in the wonderful patio. Delicious food and wonderful wait staff.
