I’ve heard so much about Terroni but had never been to any location of theirs before to try a single Italian dish.  Thus, I was very grateful to be able to get to try it finally!  We went to Terroni at Adelaide on a Friday night — they have two other locations; one at Queen and one at Yonge at Price.

Terroni at Adelaide is located at 57 Adelaide Street East and housed inside the historic York County Court House, which served as the city court from 1852 to 1900.  How neat!   Continue reading
