As soon as we went into the restaurant it felt right. We had a warm welcome and the surroundings and atmosphere were really comfortable. I was surprised that they weren't full to capacity on a Friday evening but maybe the slightly unusual location is to blame. Our family group of five definitely enjoyed our visit. Reasonably priced and mostly classic... More

I took a party of 14 here to celebrate my birthday. The managers were very obliging and we sampled a range of their menu choices - all of which were successful. The dover sole (special) was a particularly big hit. The restaurant is located on the shore of the south side lakes and some of our guests had problems finding... More

We went with four friends. This was our first occasion in this restaurant. It was an "interesting" journey. It is very simple until the last few hundred meters. Then it is off on a tiny road off the main road and down into the park and across a pretty "wooden" bridge over the river Lee. It overlooks Stanborough lakes and... More

Visited a few times now and always had great tasting well presented food with a fine range of wine. The staff are always welcoming, helpful and professional who look after us well. The menu is varied offering a good selection of Italian dishes. The decor is modern, clean and airy, on a lake side location making for a marvellous experience.

The setting overlooking the lake seems incongruous because it is located in a public park where one would expect a chip shop or hot dog and burger stand. This upscale table clothed dining facility has great food though only Italian wines, but that makes sense as it is an Italian menu. The food and desserts were great but the waiter... More

We always try to visit the Terranova every four to six weeks sometimes more, however with holidays, visiting friends etc. we hadn't been since July. Last Saturday 24th October we booked and had a wonderful dinner. Last month we went to some very good restaurants in Lake Garda. They were more expensive but no better than the Terranova which came... More
