Terùn is really climbing the ranks. In 2014, the California Avenue Italian restaurant/pizzeria made it into a New York Times “restaurant report.” And in 2015, it was named best Italian Restaurant by the prestigious readers of the Palo Alto Weekly. Terùn was first named Terrone until owner and Italian native Franco Campilongo found out a Canada-based company that owns numerous Italian restaurants in Toronto and two in Los Angeles had trademarked the name “Terroni” (the distinguishing final vowel wasn’t different enough, apparently). You’ll find homemade pasta, southern Italian entrees and pizzas cooked in a magnificent Marra Forni wood-fired Neapolitan oven. Dine al fresco under strings of bulb lights in a pleasant covered outdoor patio hidden in the back.
