“White Tablecloths, Cozy Dinning Room Setting with Tasteless Food and Spotty Service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2012

The setting is very nice. A restaurant in a home style suburban setting with cozy dinning areas. Good for dinner conversations.

Service was very friendly but not frequent. A carafe of water is left on the table but just before we are about the use it its wisked away to another table. Getting it back was a chore.
Utensiles are not replaced. No one checks to see if the food is satisfactory after its delivered. Getting the side dish order right and the type of coffee also proved to be a challenge.

The food reflects a similar lack of attention to detail. The sauces and the cheeses were overbearing but probably masked the underlying problem with freshness of the fish, shrimp, chicken, and eggplant in the main dishes. We shared a cranberry/apple tart for dessert. Nice idea to warm the tart and have ice cream and whipped cream around it but the way it was served made it an unexpectedly soft mushy dish.

“Wonderful Private Party”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2012

We recently had a birthday party at this restaurant and it was a wonderful experience. The food was delicious and the choices were plentiful--we let everyone order off of the menu as opposed to having a set menu. The room was beautiful and the service was excellent. There is onsite parking and it is very handicap accessible. Even the bathrooms were pretty! We will definitely go back again.

“Don't Bother!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2011

Just came back from dinner with family of 10. Service was poor. Food was less than average. App of fried calamari was not crispy, overcooked & tasteless! Chicken Marsala had to be sent back. Way too salty & tasted like canned brown sauce from a jar....NOT made with Marsala wine. Replaced with chicken picatta, chicken was tough & this time NO salt was put in so it was way too bland. Also everyone else finished their dinner by the time mine came. Broccoli rabe was also way over salted, no one was able to eat that either. On special was double pork chop with marsala sauce, meat was way over cooked and same horrible salty canned brown sauce was on top. We had several bottles of wine and 6 deserts with espresso/cappachino, bill came well over $400. We will NOT be returning. They didn't even bother to adjust the bill to compensate for the bad food & service.

“Great Food and Great Prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2011

Our group of eight had a wonderful time. The food was excellent, with a wonderful presentation. We had seven different dinners among us and everyone said they would order the same dinner again. The staff was pleasant and courteous which made our birthday celebration even better. I would recommend La Terrazza to everyone. We went to the bar area after dinner and that too receives an excellent rating.
