“Regular visitor”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

I have often eaten at this Restaurant and have never been unhappy with the service or the food. The menu is always good and the specials are always good. This is not an expensive place to eat good food and enjoy a relaxing lunch or dinner. Staff always give a good warm welcome and will do as much as they can to make sure you have an enjoyable experience.

We hadn't booked a table, but when we arrived on a Saturday evening staff made an effort to ensure we didn't feel forgotten and brought us drinks while we waited for a table to become available.
The general appearance of the place inside is run down and the staff could make more of an effort to smarten up too. We were seated at a table which had a dirty/stained table cloth and broken glass on the floor underneath.
We were prepared to forgive this if the food made up for it, but sadly it was not to be.
This has to be the only Italian restaurant I've ever been to that didn't have a single pizza on the menu! My husband ordered a sirloin steak only to be told that they had just run out, so he had a rump steak instead which wasn't the best quality and came with just a small side plate of vegetables.
My lasagna was very bland and the side salad was a poorly presented selection of roughly cut unimaginative plain salad ingredients (predominantly lettuce and tomato) no dressing.
We didn't stay for dessert...

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

I would highly recommend this restaurant. I have been eating here pretty much since it first opened & I have always had an amazing meal with amazing service. The staff are always happy to help and nothing is to much trouble, especially the owner Gino. If you want something that isn't on the menu or want a meal adapted for your taste just ask and it is no problem. Meals are always tastely and to a high standard. What more can I say, any excuse I have to go out for a meal and I want to go to la Terrazza.

“tiny portions :(”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

Went here as was reccommended by a few people for a christmas party meal with friends. Ok yes we were met by friendly staff & the menu sounded nice but not one of us was happy with what we actually got! For example the chicken dish arrived with 3 very thinly sliced pieces of chicken breast, pork was 2 thin slices & so on, all with a bit of sauce. Then had to wait for vegetables & pasta - which turned out to be 1 very small plate of 'long' spaghetti between 2 to 3 of us - hardly enough for a spoonful each, 1 small plate of vegetables too. Nothing in the meal made you think you were in an italian restaurant - no variety of pasta or any specialist - could have cooked it all at home to be honest! We all left very hungry & disappointed :(
