“I'm sorry but..... :(”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

Ambiance beautiful!

Food... We won't go back!
We were served 4 teething biscuits to start.
Stale pieces of bread with oil on the side.
We asked our waiter for Parmesan cheese for the oil. He never returned with it.
I had to ask the hostess for it, who in turn asked the bus boy to get. He brought it promptly.

I ordered Rigatoni with smoked chicken for $18.95.
It was supposed to be in a creamy Parmesan sauce.
It arrived in a flat soup bowl and the most milky Parmesan sauce I have experienced.
I kept hoping it would thicken as it cooled. It didn't.
It had 10 bite size pieces of chicken mixed in.
So, basically noodles in a soup bowl with milk and 10 pieces of chicken for $19.
No spices, no garlic.... Very boring and tasteless!!

My husband ordered the Veal Scaloppine Marsala for $24.95.
He will eat anything and doesn't complain but when he came out and said this is "horrible",
I wasn't surprised. He stated the 3 pieces of veal were medallion size (about 2" diameter) and the wine Demi-glaze was flavorless! He chose angel hair pasta instead of the veggies and potato. He LOVES veal marsala. I was very disappointed for him.

Service ... Horrible. We arrived sometime after sunset so the major dinner rush, if any, was gone.
Our waiter was not attentive, nor, responsive and kept disappearing. As above, we couldn't get the Parmesan cheese from him, my husband dropped his fork and we waited for his return, but if we waited any longer, our food would be cold. We had to ask the hostess again. My husbands cola ran out and he never came around again to see if he could refill it. Very poor service, indeed.

“Lovely Italian Ambiance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

Had an early dinner here this week. They offer a wonderful special if you dine before 6pm...$25 for 4 course meal. Start with a salad or bruschetta, next a delicious bowl if soup, entres are too many to list here, and finish with a delicious dessert. Great value for quality meal. Location in a Ross from Hotel Del.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012 via mobile

We had eaten at another Italian restaurant the night before and were disappointed, but this place looked nice so we gave it a try. It was around sunset and sitting out on the upstairs patio was beautiful. The service was excellent and the food very good. The prices seemed a little high, but with a such a nice setting and great service and food, ir made it worth the visit.

“Best Italian on Coronado”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

This is a really good, traditional Italian restaurant. We went for lunch as a large group (30+, pre-booked) and the food and service was very good. The restaurant is light and airy and the decore very modern Italian. The waiters handled our big group very professionally and efficiently. The food was wonderfully fresh and well-presented. Not all restaurants can effectively feed a large group without dropping standards - La Terrazza did a fantastic job. Memorable lunch.
