Enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was great. Good waiter. Loved all the little fireplaces and the rustic decor.

We didn’t imagine that this restaurant in a back alley would be so busy, so popular, and deservedly so. Without a reservation we were lucky to get a seat at the bar where the bartender tended to us very attentively. The food was just terrific....We were in a bit of a rush on our way to the airport so went for simple and the Caesar salads, Sugo (bolognese) pasta, and Melanzane Al Forno (eggplant pasta) did not disappoint. A glass of red set it all off perfectly. And in the short time we had. This wasn’t leisurely fine dining, but it was an excellent meal.More

I really wanted to be writing a 5 star review and if it was based on ambience and service it would be. Unfortunately the food did not rate a 5 star. We split the calamari appy and the calamari itself was good but a huge...serving paired with a bland sauce, spongy chorizo and excessive greens. My husbands blackened snapper was in his opinion the best he’s ever had. My pasta dish was ok but overpowered by garlic and more greens. The one thing we were excited about ordering was our tiramisu- having dined on fine Italian cuisine many times before we knew this would be a no brainer… except it wasn’t. Chocolate ganache does not belong on the top of tiramisu and the flavours were overpowered by something similar to semi sweet chocolate chips.More

We were famished after a long day around town and visiting the Gardens. We were lucky enough to have a reservation at il Terrazzo. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Service is top notch. Wine was great for the price, and the food was...even better than everyone said it would be. Top notch, you will not be disappointed.More

In spite of my error in showing up 24 hrs early (I booked the 5th instead of the 4th) the gentleman at the reception desk still managed to accommodate the 5 of us. We are very aware of how busy Il Terrazzo is and Sunday...night was no exception. Our sincere thanks to the staff at Il Terrazzo for their gracious hospitality. It goes without saying that the meal was - as always - outstanding. Larry and Heather Johns and guests.More

The heater was on and it was so hot it made me nausead. I asked the server to please tell them to add some fresh air, turn up the fans and get the air moving. It is not healthy to be in a place where...they don't care about your comfort as well as keep on a heater when they have fireplaces there. The host and hostess were cold and should move their stand so they are not right in the doorway. I imagine they are the one's who ask to keep the heat on. If they choose to work there then wear more clothes and get a personal heater but don't take advantage of your customers who are so hot with no air to breath. It is rude and rigid.More

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.

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

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
