A busy place, but their efforts to control noise work nicely. Our server was professional, knowledgeable, and delightful, but spread too thin (listening, management?). The good ... my memorable veal scallopini. My first reaction that more herbs would help, dissolved when the taste of truly excellent veal coated my mouth. It was so good, i didn't really care about the... More

Attended a business meeting, the food and service was top notch! Great wine selection, perfectly done salads, and the dinner was perfectly done! I recommend the duck, it will melt in your mouth, great flavor.

You know when you want to go somewhere with friends, be able to hear them and feel like a grownup and not a hipster? Well this is the place. How in the WORLD it took me so long to finally go here is beyond me. This is Italian at it's best with service you only find in NYC. Thank you... More

We experienced some of the best service I've had in a long time at this restaurant. However, for the price, the food was quite disappointing. We arrived on a Saturday night without a reservation and were very grateful to get 2 seats at the bar. Everyone from the hostess, the bar tender, and the servers were incredibly helpful, friendly, and... More

A special "thank you" to our... More

My wife and I and friend had an unexpected wonderful lunch. We were in Pioneer Square on other business and we were looking for a nice place to have lunch. We walked into a couple of places but the menu and setting just did not appeal. I remembered Il Terrazzo was just a block or two away - and that... More

This restaurant is the best Italian by far in Seattle. I do not know how its not in the top 10 on Trip Advisor. Everything is always superb. I have eaten here on multiple occasions and always bring family when they visit to show them what is all about. Service is always incredible and the food is so authentic and... More
