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.

We enjoyed a girls evening at Terra Nostradamus last night. 5 ladies, all over 55 We enjoyed a glass or two of house Italian wine, then each ordered a different dish. One friend is a "true" Italian, and raved over the wedding soup. We tried the Shrimp fra diavolo, spaghetti and meatballs, manicotti, chicken Terra Nostra and Veal Marsala. Everyone... More

Very good Italian food and a must visit for anyone staying on Fort Myers Beach. Our table of 7 ordered 7 different dishes and everyone enjoyed their meal. Service was great, just attentive enough. Something as basic as pasta in meat sauce is deeelish. You will have leftovers. They have outdoor seating, but are located on the main drag so... More

He's been around forever on the Beach and in several other places like Charleston,Martha's Vineyard and so on but the move to Terra Nostra finally brought out the great chef Fernando. Lots of fresh made dishes, veal to die for and the always raucous personalty of Fernando. He knows his wines as well and the place is good value with... More

We had our meal after watching the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico. Located close to our hotel and just across the road from the beach we arrived just before 9pm. The service staff were excellent, the restaurant was clean and tidy and we were able to find meals that suited each of us. The entrées (mains) and bread were... More
