We went to Terra Mia recently for a small family birthday celebration. We had a great table near the beautiful fireplace. The service was excellent and the food was good. But the noise level was so loud that we couldn't have conversation at our table without shouting. I'm not sure if it was the high ceilings, a rowdy crowd, or... More

A friend and I recently tried this restaurant buried deep in Livermore, near the labs. Service was excellent with plenty of servers to attend to the guests. The food was quote tasty though a little over spiced for Italian. I believe it is aimed more at pleasing American taste buds than being authentic. It is located in a quaint open... More

The paternal side of my family is from Calabria so we try to visit at least once per year. My father was born in Cetraro and we had dinner in the historic center of Cosenza and whenever in Italy when asked I say we are from San Francisco as Mill Valley across the Golden Gate won’t be recognizable. The waiter... More

Terra Mia is a gem. Authentic Italian food, expertly prepared. The servers are friendly and knowledgeable. My husband likes to practice his very limited Italian with them, and they are happy to oblige. Their daily specials are excellent, and the antipasto platter is a real treat - they will size one according to how many are in your party if... More

I took my wife to Terra Mia for what I hoped would be a wonderful Mothers' Day brunch. Disappointing would be an understatement. The problem started when we realized we could only order off a very limited Mothers' Day Brunch menu. My wife chose Insalata Campagnola, not so much because it was what she wanted, but because it was the... More

I ate at this restaurant for a company dinner that had prearranged a family style menu, so I got to try several Italian dishes that I normally would not order (pasta with creamy tomato sauce and salmon chunks; and a chicken diah). The food was very good with staff provided excellent service. I would definitely return to this restaurant when... More

Truly a fine Italian Restaurant with excellent service! Delightful Pasta dishes, daily specials, if you are a lamb lover, their rack of Lamb is superb. Full bar, great martinis and a nice selection of Livermore wines.

Terra Mia is by far our family's favorite local restaurant! The service is always outstanding, and the food is amazing and fresh, from it's daily specials to basically everything on the menu. It's hard to pick a favorite dish, but if the swordfish is on the special of the day, don't miss it! The fresh pastas, fabulous pizzas, and desserts... More

Seriously GREAT italian food, with amazingly kind and thoughtful servers. We've been going for several years, so we have had many interactions and they always remember us, what we like, and are wonderful with suggestions and service. I love italian food and when you have an Italian as your waiter, you know it's authentic! LOVE LOVE LOVE this place!
