We were in Dallas visiting family. Their work schedule changed forcing us to cancel our original reservation. They were so gracious and said to mention that to the hostess, if we made it in later, when they didn't have a reservation for us. We showed up, they immediately found us a table, the service and food was outstanding. Now, our table was behind the jazz combo that started up towards the end of our meal, but we had agreed to the table (for 5) knowing that would start. It would have been awkward for an entire meal. We will definitely return on future trips to Dallas.

We came for my sons birthday. The food was amazing as always. I tried a few new martinis on this visit. I loved the white chocolate martini. We love the italchos...we visit here often just for those! Our service wasn’t as good as normal...but it was New Year’s Day, so I’ll give the guy a pass on how slow it was because that is definitely not the norm for this place!

Dined at Terrellis for my fathers birthday. The vibe was not matching ours- they had live music that made it impossible to have a conversation, the food was mediocre (nothing to write about). Dad especially requested osso di bucco and I made reservations based on this dish being on their menu. I didn’t realize it’s primarily made with veal not pork. Terrellis version is made with pork. It didn’t impress my dad, unfortunately; however after 3 glasses of wine, he said he thoroughly enjoyed his birthday dinner.

Birthday luncheon was on the spot for our group of 5! Great food, service and atmosphere for small or large groups! Last time I was here was 10 years ago and then 5 years before that. Will make the trek from the burbs to get my Terilli's fix more often.

They forgot our appetizer. We told them we still wanted it and didn’t get it until we were almost done with our entrees. Had to ask for sparkling water twice before I got it. Food was delicious but service was mediocre. Our reservations were at 5:30, so don’t see a reason why service was poor

We met with family for a Saturday lunch. We all enjoyed our lunch specials, especially the make-your-own pasta and salad specials. At $9.50, it is really quite a bargain, and the choices are really varied. The combos are also great buys. Our server was quite personable, and the manager contributed to the sense of being welcomed and appreciated.

We'll be back.

Such a shocking disappointment! We had a good experience years ago, so of course we expected the same. The ministrone soup was tepid, to say it was warm would be giving it too much credit. Basically, broccoli and cauliflower in broth. No beans or any veg usually found in Italian vegetable soup. Salad had lots of white leaves I usually discard in the Caesar. The house was uneventful.. no tomatoes. We had 3 lasagnas and a ravioli. None of us looked liked we ate much but none of us complained to each other. Then someone said I liked the warm bread the best... too bad they overdid the balsamic in the dipping tray. Drinks were overpriced but good. The back waiter insisted on take home boxes but none of us will partake again. Very disappointing meal and we will not be returning.

Had our sons rehearsal dinner there 2 years ago and was awesome. Been there several times in the past 18 months and was still good. Went there last week and the prices have gone way up and portion size way down. Too bad, it was one of our favorite spots, now probably will not be back.

I really wanted to like this place but was disappointed. I guess you go here for the ambiance. We ended up sitting outside since the music was so loud inside, it wasn’t conducive for good conversation for a large table. Service was wonderful but food was just MEH. Not bad but kinda bland and greasy. I was disappointed that for the price, the food wasn’t amazing.

Food was excellent and our server was great. We sat in a semi circle booth on the side of the bar and felt very private where talking was easy for a party of four. Music was a nice quiet compliment to the evening.

What a special night we had celebrating my best friend's birthday! Thank goodness Yolanda answered when I called earlier in the day to ask a question about desserts....she was so helpful and took the time to go over the entire dessert menu with me and she made sure our waiter that evening would know our party was there for a birthday celebration. Well, she turned out to be our waitress for the night and I can't stress enough just how much fun she added to our party of 5...not only did she take great care of us the entire night, her personality and great attitude kept us laughing - she is a definite keeper! The food, the drinks, the jazz all made for a fun, special night.

Great ambiance (live piano) and the food was delicious, especially the lobster bisque and crab/shrimp pasta. Lasagna was not a favorite...the smokiness if the brisket really competed with and overpowered the delicious marinara. Other than that, everything was fantastic.

Terrilli’s provided a wonderful dining experience for our family. The libations, food and service was excellent. We were celebrating my daughter’s birthday, and at the end of the meal she was presented with delicious dessert. Terilli’s will definitely be a place we visit again.
