This was the best Italian food my husband and I have ever had by far! It was melt in your mouth amazing! We had the special which was tortilleni filled with mushrooms. Yum!! We also had the pasta pouches filled with cheese with bacon and onions! Both were so good as were the minestrone soup and the prosciutto and Parmesan... More

The place is tiny but the food is super rich in flavor! I had the Linguine agli Scampi and the tomato sauce was sooo good and fresh. The service is awesome, and the staff is really friendly. The ambient is rustic and really calm, yet sometimes you hear the Italian families speaking loud and happy. Excellent!

In general, I don't go out for Italian food. My stepmother has ruined me with her amazing marinara and Italian dishes and I have come to judge all Italian food by the bar that she has set. Not many places can live up to her level of cooking. La Terrazza did. When some friends picked an Italian place, I was... More

This is in the heart of ybor city. Its a very small restaurant sandwiched between a cigar shop and a kareoke bar. However unless you sit near the windows overlooking the sidewalk you would never know. The inside is quiet and quaintly decorated. The service is very personable, most of the servers are straight here from italy, as I assume... More

I've lived here in Tampa well over forty years. Some really good places have come and gone. Lucky for you, this one came and never went! All the excellent reviews here have it right---Luigi and company have it exactly on-the-money, i.e. there's just everything to appreciate about this place's service and food. Don't miss! [The Alla Vodka may not be... More

My husband and I REALLY wanted to like this place because of all the reviews. We went once a few months ago before a show and both ordered standard dishes (lasagna and chicken parm), but wished we had tried something less common. We went again last week and, while it was good, it just wasn't super awesome. The man working,... More

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!
