Had pasta with chicken. Was tasty however chicken was over cooked. Liked the way it was decorated, good location but it was waaaayyyy too loud. Could not hear yourself think much less the person sitting next to you. The only reason will not return.

I accidently marked the noise level question wrong. The noise level was not an issue at all so I would say that it was just right! Loved everything about the experience! The live music was great too!

Place was loud. Service was good. Food was non traditional take on Italian- delicious.
Valet was terrible- lost my keys and attendant changed my preprogrammed seat settings.

This place has been one of the greatest places to go in Dallas for years. 5 star service, like a country club . Yet you do NOT have to dress to the nines, the music (live piano and bass player) are always great. Very subtle, not loud or anything. Very easy to hold a table conversation even if you're 15 feet away. The food is insanely good. You must have a chocolate Martini.

My wife and I lived on Goodwin Avenue for many years until leaving Dallas in 2014. During that time we frequented the restaurants on Greenville Avenue, and particularly enjoyed Terilli's. We were back in Dallas taking care of some business and were able to get back to Terilli's. Still the fantastic place that it was when we lived here.

I took my fiance here for his birthday, and everything was wonderful. Good crowd, good service and great good! Complimentary valet makes this place even more desirable to go to since it's in the busy Lower Greenville area. Also, they have great quality for a fair great price!

Terilli's never ever ever disappoints. It just might be my favorite Italian restaurant in Dallas, if not favorite restaurant overall. The Chicken Terilli with tomato cream sauce is the absolute best and I will crave it every day for the rest of my life.

This restaurant was wonderful, delicious food and amazing service. The ambience was lovely, with soft lighting and lively jazz music. I wish I could remember our server's name - he was so attentive from start to finish. I had a friend from out of town who has Celiac, and eating out can be a very stressful experience for her because she worries about getting sick if she senses a server does not take her allergy seriously. He took the time to guide us through the menu and ingredients, also alerting the manager and chef of her allergy. Thank you for such a lovely evening out!

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.

Birthday celebration, party of eight. We’d made a reservation in advance, and were seated right away. The menu is extensive, and several specials were available that night. The unanimous verdict at the table was that every item that we ordered was excellent. Throughout the evening the service was attentive, good-natured and prompt.Take two piece band in the middle of the restaurant played a variety of classical, jazz, and pop songs (instrumental only). It did not disrupt our conversations at all though we were only sitting 6 feet away. It adds quite a lot of the experience.

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.
