We selected this small Italian restaurant based on reviews on Tripadvisor. We didn't know we were about to enter Luigi's special domain. A warm greeting, comfortable atmosphere and excellent food were waiting for us. Old favorites like veal scallopini were dressed up with eggplant and peppers. Peas and ham in an Alfedo sauce over pasta, a simple and delicious dish... More

Had dinner here on a Friday night. We got lucky and walked in without reservations and were able to be seated right away. For entries we had the lasagna that was on special and also veal. Both entries were good but nothing special. Not to familiar with this area as I am on vacation but would probably look somewhere else... More

Delighted to find this little gem in Ybor. Dinner was some of the best food I've had in ages: the clam sauce was out of this world, and the puttanesca sauce was fabulous. Great homemade ricotta cheesecake. And not expensive Our only quibble was the service. It started out superb -- and once we were done with the entrees, the... More

We were a group of 11 for dinner on New Year's Eve! Quaint little restaurant offering the best authentic Italian dinner in the city. BIG plus...they were able to accommodate the gluten-free member of our group. Service was exceptional and we are looking forward to our next visit.

We were in Tampa prior to a cruise and went here solely on the basis of TripAdvisor. I'm glad we did and I'm glad we made reservations. The manager Luigi treats everyone as if you are guests at his house. The place is small enough to be cozy but not crammed with tables. The wine selection is small, but it's... More

We went not knowing we were supposed to make reservations, they took us in anyway. Great food! My hubby wants to come back even though we live on the east coast of florida!

revisited La Terrazza again this year. So good we went two times this week. Fresh seafood and from scratch pasta meals and a great pork loin plate. All the food was excellent, and the fish and pasta ranks up there with the best we have had. A gem.

First off my mother is Italian, my wife is Italian and when your in-laws come into town looking for that type of food when going out....well it better be great. This place definitely was good and its smaller atmosphere made it a cozy feeling. My only complaint is that the cannoli's were hard and seemed almost as if they were... More

We were so fortunate to have a fantastic holiday party at La Terrazza! It started with Luigi welcoming us into the restaurant and treating us like family. It continued with chianti, a fantastic antipasto followed by fresh pasta, seafood and chicken. The tiramisu is made in house and is so light...like a slice of heaven. Of course, the meal was...
