We love coming to Terilli’s for date night. The food is amazing, they have great cocktails, and live music. Make sure to try their Italchos, which are Italian nachos. They are the perfect appetizer to share with your date. The Italchos come with their famous Family Red Sauce, the Terilli’s Cheese blend, and then you get to pick the toppings. Some of our favorite entrees are the Fettuccini Alfredo, The Steak and Lobster, and the Pan Seared Sea Bass.
