Fodor's Review

A cute redbrick terrace edged with potted greenery and warmed by fireplaces and overhead heaters makes Il Terrazzo—tucked away off Waddington Alley near Market Square and not visible from the street—the locals' choice for romantic alfresco dining. Starters might include a fritto misto of halibut and baby squid, or steamed mussels with sun-dried tomatoes and spicy banana peppers, while mains range from such traditional Northern Italian favorites as breaded scaloppini

of pork tenderloin to a more local-leaning halibut with blackberries. Thin-crust pizzas come piping hot from the restaurant's open-flame stone oven.

An Italian Gem Hidden Away

The first time I came here, I was seated outside on the heated terrace and said I have to come back, which I do every time I visit Victoria. A friendly place with great food.
