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!

Beware! The restaurant owner lacks integrity, the service is poor and the food isn’t worth it the price to begin with. We had a very large group meet there for a business dinner (>50 people). That number was actually lower than what she’d originally estimated, but she had provided an accurate headcount to the restaurant at noon that day. I... More

We had outstanding food served by an impeccable service staff. The meals for the 4 of us and the service could not have been better in any way.

Terra Mia is a gem. Located in a small shopping center, it is a little removed from city center, but it is well worth finding. The décor is warm, and provides a repose from everyday stress. Chances are your waiter will speak with an old world accent. The daily specials are special. The pasta dishes are always good, but the... More
