I was there after a wedding and thought the food was great. I had the special, which was a kind of seafood stew which was delicious. The staff were very attentive. I was impressed by the choice on the menu and wished I lived nearer so that I could go back there more often. It just had all my favourite... More

We were so disappointed with Terranova. I kind of feel a bit sorry for the restaurant as it just seems like it is hanging by a thread. I really didn't want to add to its disintegration however upon reflection I want to let others know about our experience so they can weigh things up and let the management know how... More

It may look like a 60's civic hall in a carpark, but we had a very good meal. It's "basic" Italian, but a lot better for that, and a lot better than an Ask or Prezzo. Excellent spaghetti vongole as a starter, lamb cutlets cooked exactly how I asked, divine limoncello sorbet. What more could you ask for. My friends... More

What a wonderful situation they have, and what a pity there are no outside tables for the summer. However, the staff are brilliantly friendly, the food is good, great value for money. Particularly generous proper pasta dishes and the fish and meat menu is really good to see - this isn't your average Italian pizza and pasta place (they don't... More

A big thank you to everyone at... More

My Husband & I were always saying we must try this restaurant and we finally got around to it. The food was amazing, with a great variety of choice on the menu. I had the swordfish which was fantastic and my husband had a terranova chicken pasta dish. The waiters were very friendly and the atmosphere was very relaxed. It... More
