Terilli's is a family owned and operated Italian paradise. While treating each of its patrons like family, Terilli’s serves reliable Italian cuisine in an atmosphere unmatched by other Dallas restaurants. Known for its ambiance, this gem is located in the heart of Lower Greenville and has local music nearly every night of the week, creating an engaging and inviting dining haven. Their rooftop provides fantastic views of downtown and is another unique featuring adding to the atmospheric appeal.

The Aviation uses lemon and floral flavors to create a refreshing cocktail that is great for beating the summer heat. 

The Aviation puts a strong floral spin on the classic Lemon Drop martini featuring Texas dry gin, lemon juice, and crème de violette. With violet undertones and a lemony zest throughout, this drink is perfect for enjoying while watching the sunset from Terilli’s rooftop seating. 

The Calacini can also be topped with shrimp or lobster, turning this delightful dish into a full-course meal. 

Aiming to serve fresh and bold Italian dishes, the Calacini is the definition of Terilli cuisine. The sautéed calamari paired with the pepperoncini and white wine garlic butter sauce creates a buttery, lemon flavored delicacy. Additionally, the Aviation matches well with the lemon flavor of the Calacini, and is a refreshing change of pace from the classic fried calamari.

The Terilli's picatta comes in either veal or chicken, both of which are Italian staples. 

Nothing says traditional Italian cuisine quite like veal picatta. Continuing with the theme of lemon, the veal picatta is topped with a lemon caper butter sauce that is both light and flavorful. Furthermore, the crisp zucchini featured in the garlic, angel hair pasta provides a nice crunch to contrast the tender, melt in your mouth veal.

The Strawberries and Cream, while simple, uses fresh fruit and amaretto cream, making it a divine treat. 

If you are looking for something refreshing to finish off your night, try the strawberries and cream. The dish is served in a stylish martini glass, and the homemade amaretto whipped cream makes this dish a fresh and sweet treat.

Featuring live music most nights of the week, Terilli’s is an ideal destination for a dinner date. Nights can be very busy, and finding a table without a wait may be hard, but Terilli’s allows you to make a reservation online or by phone. Whether you are in the mood for authentic Italian cuisine, taking a special someone out to dinner, or want to experience a Dallas classic, Terilli’s is the place to be.
