This post may look long, but it won't be wordy, that much I can promise you. The reason behind my sudden brevity is that we ordered mostly off their seasonal menu and I can't recall even the name of the dishes we had. But don't you worry, I will still exercise my judgement and make commentary on the restaurant anyway. ;)
Terroni has multiple locations, the one I frequent is located on Adelaide. I have been here a handful of times and will continue to visit in the future, in fact, I still have an unused gift card sitting around somewhere at home. Terroni, like most restaurants in the Financial District, has tasteful decor and great ambiance. In terms of seating, I suggest asking NOT to sit at the long table right by the entrance. We were sat here on one of my previous visits, when we were entertaining American colleagues. With the door constantly opening and closing and patrons having to walk past your table to get to the hostess, it is quite an interruption to your meal. Not my cup of tea.
In terms of food for this particular visit, we ordered off the seasonal menu, mostly summery BBQ items. We had the grilled sword fish, lightly breaded shrimp, vegetarian pizza topped with mozzarella, sun-dried tomato, arugula and parmigiano, and stuffed zucchini flowers with meaty croquettes. For dessert, we had their panna cotta, which I order on every single visit without fail. Not much else to say. Terroni has solid food and a it's pretty good place to bring out-of-town visitors.
Now I will proceed to let the pictures do the talking. Enjoy.
