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!

I rarely write reviews, but I felt the need to truly give this restaurant the feedback it deserves. I've been fortunate to eat in some very famous eateries around the world and I can, with 100% honesty, say this is one of the greatest experiences I have had on a whole. The food was amazingly good truly like my grandmother... More

Authentic Italian food right on the beach. Chicken parm was great as was the puttanesca. Service was prompt and efficient. Couldn't order an Arnold Palmer though because they would have to charge you for 2 drinks?? Oh we'll.. Save room for the desserts made in house, they were unbelievable.

If you like authentic italian recipes served at a restaurant where the Italian owner stops by to make sure you are satisfied, this is the place. Terra Nostra has an extensive menu and my group put it to the test this year with dishes from mussles to steak to lamb to ravioli... I could go on but I will just... More

My husband grew up in Jersey City and worked in an Italian restaurant as a teen, he says the veal Parmesan at Terra Nostra is the best he's had in many years. I had the lasagna Bolognese which was delicious and covered in their fresh marinara sauce. The warm loaf of bread with their special spread was addictive and of... More

Had a great meal here. The service and atmosphere excellent. Bit on the pricy side but you get what you pay for.
