I wish I could tell you what to order but that would be impossible...we had four different dinners and they were all superb! The staff is very friendly and will help you decide if you're torn between options. We did not try the pizza but from what we saw and what we heard it looked delicious. This was our second... More

I had the best Italian food I have ever tasted. It's not just pizza, so don't be fooled. Our little Italian lady waitress was so sweet. She made our dinners herself and recommended the ricotta cake, which was fabulous. The food is homemade, not Olive Garden style. It was excellent!

The food was delicious and I am Italian and very picky! Our server was very nice....may have been one of the owners or a relative as she sounded Italian. Décor was average. They do take reservations, but were reasonably busy that night. The flavors in the food were good. And they had limoncello for after dinner. Homemade ricotta cake that... More

If you want authentic Italian food, this is the place to eat. Across the street from DiamondHead. We've eaten there several times and have never been disappointed.

I researched this restaurant before going to Ft. Myers Beach. It was down the street from where we were staying and the reviews were good. Because it is the slow season, the place was not full but there was a good stream of people coming in for dinner. The wait staff were very friend and engaging. The décor was very... More

Terra Nostra is one of the best restaurants on the island. Each year we look forward to our visit to Fort Myers Beach and Terra Nostra. We have visited twice in a week. The owners and staff are gracious, welcoming, and friendly. Our sons enjoyed chicken and eggplant parmigiana. The marinara sauce is one of the best we have tried... More

Terra Nostra was a real find. A friend directed us to this beach restaurant, promised we would not be disappointed. The restaurant itself was charming. The staff were efficient and not intrusive. We perused the menu, narrowed our choices down to eggplant and lasagna, and proceeded to let our taste buds savor the next hour. We were not disappointed and... More

A little pricey for what we got. Food was O.K., just average. We got the mussels which was very spicy. The Veal Parmesan was kind of rubbery. The Manicotti had very little flavor. I did like the atmosphere and everyone was friendly and enjoyable.

We had a large party and they handled us with ease. Main courses were wonderful and deserts are to die for. I had a country chicken dish with very thinly sliced potatoes, sausages, mushroom and a very like white sauce. also had a caprese salad and desert. It was a great night!
