Have come here for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Service has always been prompt, informative, and attentive. Food is consistently excellent (for dinner I've had beef, veal and scallops at various times). One time my wife's beef was overcooked at dinner and they fixed the problem immediately - they were incredibly apologetic and quickly turned the negative into a positive. Charming neighborhood ambiance in a old house converted to a restaurant. Inside is cozy and inviting, and the outside seating is wonderful too with garden elements in a pretty quiet neighborhood Levi, the owner, is an excellent host who makes sure his guests are properly cared for. Located just off Main Street in downtown Littleton. If you like to cook, visit the Savory Spice Shop just a block away.

First, let me say that the food here was wonderful, as was the service. There are lots of interesting things on the menu, and our server was knowledgeable and had good suggestions for us. Once seated, the service was prompt without being overbearing. Now for the bad part. Forget parking behind the restaurant - it is woefully inadequate if the restaurant is full. Plan on wearing your walking shoes, because parking in the vicinty is difficult. We may have been there at a busy time, but we parked at least four blocks away. Reservations are an absolute must. If you want a specific time on a weekend night, you had better make them at least ten days in advance. Finally, the restaurant is small and the seating is close to your neighbors. i wouldn't suggest this for a romantic date, unless you want your neighbors to hear everything you say. On the plus side, if you are a friendly sort and want to know how your neighboring diners enjoyed their dinner, it is easy to check out what they had and asked them how they liked it.

Cafe Terra Cotta is a special treat indeed. Our steward, Danny, surprised us with a starter glass of complementary champagne, which was fabulous. We then had a bottle of Catenea Malbec which complemented our food beautifully. Danny shared that many of their ingredients come from Savory Spice Shop and it shows. Their Buffalo Calamari was fresh and delicious with a lemony blue cheese dip and over an edible cabbage mix. We especially recommend the feta cranberry with candied walnuts and spinach salads. They have many great entrees, but we always go for the freshly prepared walleye or salmon. We cannot resist Cafe Terra Cotta's specialty dessert, their Nanaimo Bars drizzled in Grand Mariner....better than tiramisu or other yummy chocolate desserts. With the intimate, historic atmosphere and fantastic flavors, this is a must do for an anniversary or other celebration.

The quaint house is a bit noisy on the inside but the outside courtyard and porch seating is a pleasure on summer mornings. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. Great wines and good food. They are very consistent.
