About

From our home in Toronto where Terroni was founded to yours in Los Angeles, you can bank on a variety of creative Italian dishes at our dramatically appointed Downtown LA location that keeps our passion and fascination in Southern Italian fare alive and well.

Our menu is filled with regional Italian dishes that have been prepared the same way for generations. So out of respect for Italian gastronomy—and our grandparents—we don’t modify our dishes. Enjoy!

We visited to celebrate my boyfriends birthday last week. It was our first experience dining out, since quarantine, and were both a little anxious. The professionalism and care that Terroni took eased our worries, with strict enforcement of mask rules and well-spaced seating. The food was amazing, service was friendly and by the end of the night, we’re we’re stuffed and relaxed. We had a great time!

Everything was good, food, setting etc. the waitress on the other hand was horrible. People with an attitude like this women’s should not be servers.

First time eating at Terroni. Great building location. Enjoyed the vibe. Suzanne was fabulous and very personable and attentive. She took the time to find out a little more than just hello. Suzanne is an asset to your restaurant. The food was amazing and we will definitely come back.
Thanks to your staff.

My hotel (Hoxton) recommended this restaurant. First I had difficulty in finding it, because in the dark, the restaurant name is not lit up.
It's a huge restaurant and I was put on a table in a nearly empty area, but it was at 9:15pm. Food was ok, service ok too, but the pasta was just put on my table and the waitress walked away without asking, if I want some parmesan cheese or pepper. I eventually managed to get the attention of another waiter, when I also had to ask for a spoon and the waitress who took the order, tried to say, that I don't need a spoon for eating Tagliatelli pasta.
The white wine I had was not chilled, but drinkable.

Pasta here is always very, very good. The fresh slads are executed to perfection. No need to add additional condiments. Just buon appetito.. Nice atmosphere, open, airy. Excellent wait staff and bartenders. Friendly, responsive and knowledgeable. First time at Terroni LA downtown LA. We usually eat at the Beverly Blvd location because it is a mile from home. Both are excellent... Will return for sure!

Not the best experience. We were here for Valentine’s and it wasn’t too crowded but hostess and waiter were unwelcoming and it seemed that they didn’t care at all. The tables are too close to each other so you don’t have any private or romantic atmosphere, and it’s very loud there. Also it was too dark, we had to read a menu with phone flashlight. Food was not bad but pretty average and portions were small (but not the prices). Wine wasn’t really good too. Think we’ll not come back again.

Visited here for Valentine's Day 2020. Ambience and service were excellent, but the table we received was very congested (and too closely placed to another couple). Essentially all night I could hear their conversations and couldn't really flare out my arms. Otherwise, the hall-like ambience gives you a food-court vibe.

Anywhoo, the food was alright. We had gotten the house wine which was perfect and I had gotten some beef noodles and my date had the Black Ink noodles. Presentation was nice but it just tasted "Okay." Nothing to really rave about but it filled me and my date's belly for that night.

Terroni has been on my husband's bucket list after an Italian friend of ours said the pasta was the most authentic in Los Angeles. I had a sardine spaghetti (caution, the sardine taste is pronounced!) and my husband had a cheese/cured ham pizza (salty, in a good way). We had a fresh mozzarella to start (didn't taste as fresh as I would have expected based on previous experiences with fresh mozzarella) and hazelnut/vanilla gelato (I'm sure the gelato is very good, these flavors are not the best) to end our meal. All in all, it was a nice meal, no real complaints. However, in DTLA there are SO many other options for Italian. We will probably be back to Terroni but its difficult to say we'd choose to go to Terroni instead of Maccheroni Republic for pasta or Gelateria Uli for gelato.

Pizza was nice but it was difficult to hear. Valet was $10 and it’s $3 across the street. It was just ok. Will choose elsewhere in the future.

We were in LA for the theatre and decided to try Terroni. It was fabulous! I had the homemade pasta Bolognese and my colleague has the paper wrapped sole. Both were outstanding and our waitress was awesome!

Phenomenal experience. From the moment we arrived (arrived 30 min prior to our reservation) the service was spectacular. The host at the door was courteous and we started at the bar. Service was excellent and friendly. Our table was ready on time and we were seated. The server was very helpful and personable. The entire meal from appetizers through dessert was exceptional. The pasta dishes were fresh and cooked perfectly. The server was attentive but not on top of us. I would highly recommend this place! We will return.

Prices are too high for the size of the dish. Plus staff should be clean shaved and in clean pressed uniforms. Looks a little sloppy for the price and elegance you ask for. Meaning casual dress, and 20 to 30 dollars a plate.
