La Terra was our first dinner on our honeymoon and would become the bar that everything else would be judged by...no one else won including cuisine on an RCC cruise.
We started with the bruschetta which tasted like you were eating a garden. I've never had tomatoes so full of flavor. The bread had the same taste, texture, and smell of that of my neighbors who came from Italy. I haven't had that bread since Nana passed away. La Terra let me relive her fresh baked goodness.
We had eggplant and the gnocchi for appetizers. The eggplant was just like the tomatoes - I don't even think it was seasoned, it was just natural eggplant that was fresh and delicious. The gnocchi was amazing.
We order the steak which came out on a huge plate with two forks and two knives. It was a little fatty but it was delicious.
Finally, the thing that took the night was the pear ricotta pie/cake. We have never had a dessert that was so flavorful, light, and just knock you out good. Nothing topped it. I don't know if that was homemade or store bought or came down from the mountain gods but that Pear Ricotta cake/pie is worth the trip to Italy.
If you are staying in Positano, you're experience isn't complete without eating at La Terra and being serenaded by the owner and his saxophone.
