Terroni ★★★ 1/2

Price: $15+

Been meaning to visit this restaurant and finally got the chance to with a fellow foodie. We went on a weekday before 6pm, so it wasn’t too crowded. They usually gets busier after this, so try to make reservations.

The first thing I noticed after walking in was the lack of a host/hostess desk to go to, the second is the nice decor – I like the old school and casual laid back atmosphere of the place. My foodie friend and I kind of wandered in and after glancing around for help just decided to grab seats ourselves by the window. Our server (the name escapes me now) was nice and polite, refilling our waters constantly and occasionally asking us how our meals were. They were helpful with menu suggestions as well.

I think Terroni is known for their pizza but we weren’t really in the mood for that so I decided to try the Classico Panini for $11.95. Includes prosciutto di parma, fresh tomato, fior di latte (a type of mozzarella), basil, arugola with a side bowl of mushroom and olives. It is only available from 9am to 5pm but it’s definitely worth trying. I loved my panini with its crunchy exterior and yummy soft goodness inside! It is a slightly messy meal though, too much flour on the bread, so be a bit careful when ordering this. It is not a meal you order when entertaining a date or client. Haha. For my foodie friend, they had the Spaghetti in Canna a Mare at $16.95 and that includes fresh clams and mussels, calamari, scallops, tiger shrimp and light tomato sauce. I was able taste a bit of their dish and although it was okay (the sauce wasn’t really doing it for me), I did prefer my panini more. Hope to check out the pizza or pasta dish on my next visit!

Dress code: Casual. Jeans and a t-shirt should suffice but for dinners, upgrade to a nicer shirt, sweater, etc. No sweatpants please!

Overall, it’s a nice place for friends, family and work.
