Great food but what's the hurry???

Despite living a mile away and visiting the lakes often I had never ventured here until last night. Visited with a Groupon offer which was remarkable value. I booked a table requesting a window seat and got just that. The food was very good - we had chilli prawns and ham/melon to start and... read more

The Terranova restaurant is a hidden gem serving delicious wholesome food in very convivial surroundings. Starters like prawns with advacado, tricalore salad are some choices which although typical, are generously proportioned and it is impossible not to finish your plate. Wide wine selection with cheaper options but for £25-£30 you can taste exquisite wines you would expect to pay double... More

I have been eating at the Terranova for about 20 years as a young girl (this is one of my parents favourite restaurants). The food has always been very fresh, tasty and authentic. It is incredibly good value too. There are often large groups here so if you want to ensure a very quiet evening I can't be sure this... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Hertfordshire. Extensive menu, fast and pleasant and at a reasonable price. Enzo or Bruno definitely know how to look after you.

I had prawns which I thought would b in a lovely garlic butter but iit was completely overpowered by the taste of lemon &... More

I visited The Terranova for my fourth time last night. I was with a group of about 25 people who met at 20.00 and were ready to leave at 22.30. E Although the setting is fabulous and the food is good, the waiters really try and hurry you along. I had to hold onto the bread basket and at one... More

I'm astounded at the glowing reviews of this place. I will say that we received a warm and friendly welcome and the service was good, however the food was dire. Tiger Bread from the local Tesco and Lakeland butter packets!! in an Italian restaurant..! King prawns in a very unpleasant overly lemony sauce, then Halibut served in exactly the same... More

Real Italian family feel to the place. Great food, waiters were really friendly and attentive. Right by the lake so I bet it would be perfect outside in the summer

As we drove up outside I was slightly concerned where I had booked. I needn't have worried, from the moment we walked in we were welcomed and the service was excellent.very typical Italian type atmosphere. There was a very varied choice on the menu and the food was lovely, no complaints at all. The restaurant was full and there was... More
