Our server Luigi made the entire experience amazing! The wine list is excellent with various wines and prices. The food was fresh and amazing (spinach ravioli in tomato cream sauce for me!) and an antipasti plate that was excellent. The location in Ybor is close to other places if you want a pre (or post) drink. Great for a dinner... More

I'm fortunate to travel frequently and eat well. Little did I know that there was an Italian gem right here where I lived. The owner, Luigi knows how to treat his guests and the chef in the back does too. A great experience.

I am new to Tampa, and honestly - rarely go out for Italian food. La Terrazza has not only been one of those few exceptions, but also has quickly become one of my favorite restaurant in Tampa. I love the authentically Italian vibe -- it's like going to dinner at cousin Luigi's house. And speaking of Luigi - well, he's... More

Cute and romantic restaurant with a family feel. Staff seemed to know everyone that was dining, which means they have a lot of repeat customers. That is always a good thing. Food was fantastic, and I am a picky Italian!

We were in Tampa and decided to go to Ybor City for dinner and take in the sight when we came across La Terrazza and ate a very nice meal. We ordered some wine and my wife asked for the Salmon and I ate the Veal Marsala. Both dishes were very good although my Marsala was a little low on... More

Don't expect great decoration, only great food. Al dente is perfect al dente. Service is care. The desserts were great, freshly homemade. Return, return. I tried the futti de mare, and it was superb. Will return.

After a long day at Busch Gardens, we were in need of a relaxing meal. We went to La Terazza because of good reviews on Trip Advisor. We were all very happy with our meals and our waiter was very helpful and friendly. He was from Italy and the food tasted like the recipes came straight from Italy. Best cheese... More

My partner and I enjoyed our first meal here last evening. We had our choice of tables but it soon became busy after 7PM. We were initially greeted by a "bus boy" who provided us with drinks, bread and butter. Shortly after, our server introduced himself. If you want authentic Italian food served by a smiling and genuine Italian server,... More
