Decided not to have wine to which the waiter's remark was "wine is bad for you" and shared the starters to which the response "sharing sharing" They need to revisit their customer service for waiting tables etiquette rather than be big headed otherwise Ok O

Had lunch with some girlfriends. We found the restaurant very good, service excellent and the food was all beautifully presented. My only criticism is that the peace was shattered by the waiters shouting to each other.

Always nice to have an evening out here. They are accommodating with last minute bookings and the food is excellent. The atmosphere created by the staff enhances the already good food which makes every trip a pleasure. Recommend this restaurant to everyone.

This has been one our favourite restaurants for a couple of years, it always seems to be busy & has a good but a bit noisy atmosphere. The food is always well cooked & nicely presented. On our latest visit we decided try the sliced duck breast for a change, what a let down, one very very thin slice of... More

We have been before and this was a return visit with different people. As we were five people we were pleased to be offered a round table. The menu has something for everyone even those who do not like Italian food. The service was prompt. The food very good. Like most Italian restaurants the atmosphere can be a little noisy... More

Charged for olives/bread that we didn't ask for or eat. Food very salty so little flavour, and over priced! The service was slow and there was a large table of Italians that were very noisy and had all the service. Not a place for a romantic meal, felt like a school dinner. Owner was flirting with the young ladies rather... More

We went to Terranova for a meal and enjoyed it very much. There were two tables of 16 and even early in the evening most of the other tables were taken and the place had a very happy atmosphere. Despite being very busy we were served promptly and did not have to wait too long between courses. My wife and... More

We are regular visitors to this restaurant and always enjoy a warm welcome and friendly, efficient service. The setting by the lake is wonderful and there is a great ambience inside, too. The menu gives a good range of starters, mains and desserts, all based on well recognized Italian dishes. There is also a good choice of wines at reasonable... More

Lunchtime meal for a family group of varying ages celebrating a birthday. Welcome was friendly, menu is not the largest but offers plenty of choice. Beware of the parking charge in the main car park. The restaurant overlooks the boating lake which results in a very pleasant view. Had plenty of free yummy bread. Ordered a variety of meals from... More

Last week we dined at Terranova. Let me start by saying the restaurant was verly nice indeed, sat in a lovely park facing a lake however two incidents that I am going to mention put me off going there again. As for recommending it, I'll leave it to you. You decide for youself. Firstly, on our arrival we were shown... More
