This restaurant has great potential. Nice location, nice ambiance. The food was a dissapointment. The fish was dry, the pasta dish bland and the service was forgettable. We have been twice and now we will pass on going again.

We ate here on Tuesday evening after Labor Day. The crowds were gone, no reservation necessary, and the staff were relaxed. The cuisine has a definite Portuguese influence thanks to the sous-chef. The standard menu is not extensive, as you'd expect from a small establishment, but the nightly specials add some variety. The decor reminded me of German or Austrian... More

Last night was our first visit to this restaurant and we will be sure to come back. Lovely rustic decor and great service. I had the sardine appetizer which I have never seen on a menu outside of Portugal, and it was really good. The linguine with clams, fennel and sausage was so flavourful and just a nice hint of...

An unexpected treasure in a modest building . Food and service are excellent. Cocktails are imaginative and very very good. We had a great meal

A large group of us have 'besieged' this place once every August for years. Last year I was a little disappointed but this year everything was excellent. The room is cozy with a rustic feel. The bar mixed some nice specialty drinks. They were out of the Mako shark special so I opted for little necks with spaghetti. Delicious. My... More

We have been going to Terra Luna for years. When I make my reservations at the cape, the first thing I think of is Terra Luna. The food is out of this world. My husband and I have tried almost everything on the menu. The goat cheese and roasted fig app is my favorite. The host and the wait staff... More

We went early to avoid the crowds. They only take reservations for 5 or more. My husband started with the oysters,small serving but delicious. I had the roasted figs and goat cheese, also delicious. We both had spaghetti with seafood and couldn't have been more pleased. Even the house salad dressing was excellent. We'll definitely be back next year!

It has been an extremely hot July on Cape Cod. This restaurant was a bit of a drive for us. The building is cute and the decor is fun and funky. Drinks are excellent here, but it does take the bartender quite a while to mix them up. I would think once it got busy this would be a problem.... More

We visit the Cape for a week each year, staying in Truro. Our vacation plans usually center around when we are going to eat at Terra Luna. It has been our tradtion for the past 9 years, and we think it is among the best food on the cape. The atmosphere is rustic, but elegant with some cool art on... More

Been here many times and truly believe this is finely prepared fare on the cape. Shorts and tees are acceptable but the food is suit and skirt worthy. Get the pan fried fig/goat cheese appetizer for sure. I would like to see the menu develop a little bit...just a hint.
