Made a reservation here a couple of weeks in advance for our anniversary dinner. We were seated in a kind of carport-like annex in the back next to a space heater (photos). My tuna was served on burnt spaghetti. I would also suggest that they...take the Caprese salad off the menu if only hard unripe tomatoes are available.More

We love this place. Only room small issues this time... the first is that it is so dark...just one candle on the table. Hard to see what you're eating. Second is that they've either changed the menu or made the dish I always order differently....Swimming in olive oil. Still good but not what I was expecting.More

My aubergine pasta dish was wonderful- great flavours . Service was excellent- attentive but not bothersome. Martini was also really good and the pizza was delicious. Can't wait to go back!

You can't go wrong. Some of the best Italian food I've ever eaten. Service and atmosphere can't be beat. It's a busy place even in the off season.....we sat at the bar. Bartender was excellent.

Simply exceptional. Great fun. Superb cuisine. Wonderful ambiance. Our superb waiter and new friend, Glen, was such an added bonus that we changed our plans to come back again last night too. Romantic couples - do yourself a favor and get a reservation here. You’ll...walk out holding hands and feeling even more in love. Thanks for two beautiful nights Il Terrazo.

The italian cuisine and service is superb… you may have to book well ahead . The servers are knowledgeable, friendly and attentive… and just the right combination. The food choices including those with dietary needs. Wow! I highly recommend this restaurant.

This is still my most favorite restaurant in all of Victoria. Between the service that always make you feel that you are their only patron as well as the great wine list and menu, to the most flavourful meal I have had in a long...time. My advise to residents of Victoria or people coming to visit our town, please take the time to make a reservation. You will not be disappointed! And what a better recommendation than to be sitting at the next table to the owners of the restaurant enjoying their meals with friendsMore

Ambiance was wonderful, wait staff were professional and welcoming. The waitress asked the sommelier to choose a wine based on what we had ordered. He came back with a Sancerre we would not have chosen, and it was revelatory! The greens in the salads were...exquisitely fresh. One of the best meals in a very long time.More

We had a wonderful dinner here… the cocktails were good, the ambience was lovely & the food was great! Make sure u make a reservation cuz it’s a very busy place. We each had 2 appetizers and a main… and everything was delicious. The waitress...didn’t think we would be able to finish our food… but we did pretty good- definitely didn’t have room to try their desserts. By far the best Ozzo Bucco I’ve ever had. We had such a good experience… we wanted to come back on our last night in the city but unfortunately they weren’t opened on Mondays.More

You can see from my multiple past reviews of Il Terrazzo I have been a regular here for over 10 years. It has been very consistent in quality and service over the years, until this year. I have been there twice in the past 2...months, and this particular time it has really disappointed me. The service quality has been the lowest since I have ever dined there. The server took a good 10 minutes before coming over to ask us for our food and drinks, and then proceed to ignore us for the next 30 minutes. After the first bread basket was emptied, I saw him walked past us multiple times looking at the basket but does not bother to ask if we want to have a second basket, then at the third time passing finally asks us. After that, the food was served by another person. The previous server came back, without the bread basket, and asked us if we wanted parmesan and pepper. We said yes. 5 minutes go by, he is nowhere in sight, so we started eating. Unfortunately the pull pork and duck confit was dry, the spaghetti was mushy, just not the standard I have accustomed to at this establishment. When we were half way done our food, he came back with the bread, a good 10 minutes after we started eating. He never mentioned or brought the pepper and parmesan back. To be fair, the lamb and stuffed pasta were good, but that's 1.3 dishes out of 3. I guess this kind of service is acceptable for a typical restaurant these days, I just felt such a difference with Il Terrazzo when it has been our family restaurants for so many years. Our kids grew up dining here. It is a shame. I hope management will take note of this and improve upon their current quality and service to their formal glory.More

Our hotel conceirge recommend IL Terrazzo and it didn't disappoint. It had a romantic interior, although a bit cramped, and the pasta dishes that we had were excellent. My wife had the bolognaise and I had a spagehetti and meatballs with pesto sauce. the portions...were very generous and we felt bad we couldn't take the left overs (staying in a hotel without a microwave). Our server was very friendly and gave some great recommendations.More

My wife and I ate here on 9/29 and because it was so good, again on 9/30. Tried to reserve again for 10/1 but they were booked solid. We do a lot of traveling throughout the U S and Canada and this is the best...restaurant we have ever been to. The preparation, quality of the food and the portions are fantastic. Reservations are a must. When you are in Victoria do not miss the chance to eat dinner here.More

Really don’t know but could expect $10-$20/in a restaurant of this quality. I suggest you just as the server or the wine steward about the wine and he will take care of you. Save your wine for elsewhere and get free... More
