Terzo, San Francisco

Why did we dine here? – Terzo Is a Mediterranean restaurant in San Francisco’s Marina neighborhood. They been around for over 15 years, we haven’t been there in a while, so we visited it and dined outside during the pandemic. Easy availability spot on Opentable was the main reason we came! Nothing hot about this spot. The restaurant appears to cater to the neighborhood crowd, which mirrors the diners.

Insider Tip – Outside dining with a nice personal heater

Cuisine – Mediterranean
Location – San Francisco Marina District
Opened – 2006

Service – Terzo had reasonable service, the waiter helped us navigate the menu, pacing was good as was water refills and the like.
Verdict – Terzo is one of those oldie but goodie places that cats lost in the shuffle with all the new options. We were pleasantly surprised with the excellent entrées. It’s unusual where the entrées will overshadow the appetizers. Click transfer
