We got a recommendation for this place from friends who also love food. We could also get the recommendation from Angela Merkel if we would know her personally (roumours say that she is a frequent guest at Terra e Sapori).
The owners were kind enough to accept us for lunch despite the place being opened for dinner only that day. That gave us plenty of time to chat with them about the dishes, cooking, recipes, etc - a great experience.
The parmigiana is great indeed; one of the best we have had anywhere. No wonder - they grow their own tomatoes and can them so that they have a taste of summer available throughout the year. Some nice, home-made pasta with uncommon sauces were a nice refreshment as well. The star of the meal was definitely the rabbit (no pre-order required unlike in many other places). My wife had it for the first time ever (prejudice) but it was one of two of her favourite dishes in all the vacation.
During the same holiday, we also visited a two Michellin star restaurant on the island. Terre e Sapori wins the battle without any doubt!

The owner took us by car at Forio port without any charge. He has been cheerful, talkative, available.
FOOD. High quality. Nothing to complain. Perfect setting and atmosphere... Typical dishes, peculiar; everything was fresh and extremely tasteful.
The owner led us back again very kindly.
EXCELLENT. We've got to repeat it.

With no apparent negative reviews and from the photos I expected more. Good, but not so impressive nor memorable. Little bit pretentious, wanted to see more friendly atmosphere. Not expensive for the quality.

I had the chance to grab lunch with a few friends at Terra e Sapori just over a week ago.
We have eaten a series of amazing 'antipasti', including probably the best eggplant Parmigiana I have ever had. Excellent value for money.
I strongly suggest all of you to come taste this restaurant, especially if you want to get a break from the sun and the beach and enjoy some fresh air and a beautiful view on the gulf.

Good local food, but no written menu, and very approximate understanding of "gluten free". A bit rough and ready, but beautiful location and definitely very characteristic of the island.
