Terroni is a Toronto transplant, now with two locations; we favor the new DTLA space, set in an old bank with high, ornately carved ceilings. Chef Stephen Murray’s menus are omnivorous Italian, weighted toward pizzas and pastas that feel both traditional and original. Max Stefanelli’s wine list is pan-Italian but especially deep in wines from the center and points south, as well as the islands. Also check out their Italian-inspired cocktails, like the Little Italy, with rye, Torino vermouth and Cynar.
Editor’s note: Terroni DTLA is among the restaurants presenting at WSLA Drink+Eat 2019 on June 2.
