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...

Lovely Saturday evening spent at the restaurant following a days golf from the men and I. Table for 8 accommodated nicely. Lovely house wines and a complimentary shot to finish, albeit I think it finished me! Friendly helpful staff and good atmosphere. Prices reasonable and would go back.

Well we have just got back from eating at the terranova restaurant , beautifull lakeside views. Beautifull home made real Italian food. Fresh tasty and very nice. My partner is Italian and he was very happy and very pleased with the food he said he thought he was in Italy. The owner and staff very polite and happy. A lovely... More

Not a jolly experience. The waiter obviously wanted to be elsewhere i.e. not serving us. Its a pity because the restaurant is in a great position overlooking the lake. It was also pretty hot in there. Food okay wouldnt rave about it and the wine by the glass outrageously expensive. Wouldnt rush back.

I ate in there a while ago and the food was very good, particularly the sea food salad, this time round it's was very poor, not fresh and it was rushed and very expensive.

We first visited this restaurant in January 2015 for dinner and could not appreciate the location and views due to it being winter and dark outside and always promised ourselves to return again in the summer when it was still daylight. We booked a table for 5 for dinner @20.00 hours and was seated on a lovely round table next... More

Came here on a work-organised night out (group hen-party)! Really nice selection of food, and very tasty. Waiting staff were all happy to get in on the fun (well, with 20+ ladies, who could blame them). Lovely venue on the Stanborough lakes - have driven past it for many months, never knowing it was there.

Been going to the Terranova for years and have never had a bad meal. Really good Italian food set beside a lake. The menu is not just pizzas and pastas it's a really varied menu including fish steaks and chicken. The fegato and the veal Milanese are superb and highly recommended. When the restaurant is full the only down side... More

I had a giggle reading some of the reviews on here as it mirrored our experience. It wasn't funny when we came to pay the bill as we felt we shouldn't have been paying for the experience! However, looking on now, I think most reviewers are mentioning the single waiter who clearly must be related to the owner as there... More

Went here a few months back very friendly staff food was average but the price is very expensive although the area is nice with the lakes just outside I wouldn't travel out my way to go here.
