We were so disappointed with Terranova. I kind of feel a bit sorry for the restaurant as it just seems like it is hanging by a thread. I really didn't want to add to its disintegration however upon reflection I want to let others know about our experience so they can weigh things up and let the management know how... More

We went here for a wedding anniversary dinner with some friends. Lovely atmosphere, great food and service. Next to the lake with lovely views. What more could you want!

This is a restaurant With great Food ans wine. The staff is brilliant, they pay so much attention to the customers, you feel like the most important person in the world. My husband loved the calf liver, the best he has ever been served he says. The steaks are lovely too. Nothing is a problem, if you wish for extra... More

It may look like a 60's civic hall in a carpark, but we had a very good meal. It's "basic" Italian, but a lot better for that, and a lot better than an Ask or Prezzo. Excellent spaghetti vongole as a starter, lamb cutlets cooked exactly how I asked, divine limoncello sorbet. What more could you ask for. My friends... More

Average tasteless food, not a lot of choice and the rudest waiter , I have driven past this restaurant hundreds of times wish I had driven past again , would not return much nicer Italians to be had.

What a wonderful situation they have, and what a pity there are no outside tables for the summer. However, the staff are brilliantly friendly, the food is good, great value for money. Particularly generous proper pasta dishes and the fish and meat menu is really good to see - this isn't your average Italian pizza and pasta place (they don't... More

The food was excellent and a lot more tastier that some London expensive restaurants we usually use. The service is excellent and the waiters were very entertaining . A big thank you to everyone at... More

My Husband & I were always saying we must try this restaurant and we finally got around to it. The food was amazing, with a great variety of choice on the menu. I had the swordfish which was fantastic and my husband had a terranova chicken pasta dish. The waiters were very friendly and the atmosphere was very relaxed. It... More

My parents have often been here and have always spoken fondly of the food and service. They had hired the whole place on a Sunday for there Golden Wedding and knew none of the guests would be disappointed. Pre-dinner drinks served on arrival. Starters and mains served well (must say the portion where a good size!). Overall everything was good.... More

After reading the reviews here, and on a friend's recommendation we decided to give the Terranova a try. On first glance the outside of the restaurant doesnt look great -ie like some converted council amenity. but in its favour are the views over the lake and the interior which is nice. we didnt run into any boorish waiters as some...
