A word from Il Terrazzo
Featuring the savory cuisine of Northern Italy, Il Terrazzo at the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina is warm, elegant and altogether welcoming dining spot. Like any good Italian restaurant in Tampa, the atmosphere is lively, the cuisine is memorable and the wine is flowing. But it’s the delectable water view that makes this restaurant a truly bravissimo experience. The true proof of authenticity lies in the cuisine, with a classic Northern Italian menu created around antipasti, roasted meats, poultry and seafood, pizzas, pastas and desserts. A table near the window, or out on the adjacent patio, provides the ultimate view of Tampa’s Garrison Channel and Harbor Island – the perfect setting for a romantic evening.

Il Terrazzo reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Should have read the menu first
    DaveG
    Dined on 12/1/2013
    I am an Italian food lover...but more the basic foods. I should have read the menu prior to making the reservation. For my picky tastes the only option was the filet. It was very good but was a whopping 45.00 with no salad etc... Dinner for two costs us $130.00 with no crazy expenses. Just two filets and two beers. Again it was my bad for not reviewing the menu for std fare such as chicken parm, chicken marsala, raviolis....meatballs.etc..the things I think of when Italian food is mentioned. We were in Tampa for a show at the Forum and chose the location due to it being close to the event.

    Dinner with friends from out of town on a Saturday night. Location was perfect for us. Ambiance is quite nice and upscale. Very light crowd. Table was fine, but near a window view rather than directly at the window. (Seemed odd) Waiter was professional, but a bit hard to understand his accent. While having salads, the waiter informed our guests that they had run out of halibut; both had to re-select. Strange that it took so long to figure this out. Entrees took an extra long time to be served. Two that we're not re-selected seemed a bit dried out. Waiter validated our parking. My overall feeling was that we overpaid for this experience. I also feel that with greater management attention, this could be a really fine dining destination.

    The lamb was served as a mixture in a bowl like a stew - tasty but now what we expected. The bolognese was also served in a bowl with linguini - unusual and tasty but not superlative. The lobster bisque was the best you can get, the drinks were perfect, the bread was outstanding, & the creme brule & coffee were excellent.

    Dined on 11/1/2013
    This is a hidden gem, inside the Marriott Waterside Hotel. It's so close to the Forum, that you can enjoy dinner and then just walk a couple blocks to the concert. I only gave 4 stars for the food, since my friends' house made butternut squash ravioli was only warm, not piping hot. But they said it was delicious, just not really hot enough. My lamb risotto was perfect. The menu is varied, so you can spend just a little on a pizza or calzone, or splurge on fresh seafood. Our server Alex was very attentive. Nice extra touches like amuse bouche before our dinner and housemade truffles with the cheque. A great downtown restaurant.

    I took my girlfriend to dinner and was very impressed with the friendly service and attention to detail. Food was obviously made to order and not from a steam table. I had the Fresh Catch which was Halibut served with a risotto. The risotto was creamy goodness! My girlfriend had the filet that was perfectly cooked. Trust me this place has it going on. Crazy wine selection and homemade bread sticks. Very attentive and the manager even came by to say hi. We will be back for sure, great date!

    My best friend and I came in for dinner and had a wonderful evening! From the service staff being so polite to the amazing food, we truely enjoyed our dining experience! I had the Scallop app. which the scallops were cooked to prefection and the sauce was a nice balance. For our entree, I ordered a the Pork Belly and Scallops which was such a creative and amazing dish and my best friend ordered the Fresh Catch Snapper with Risotto which was also amazing! I will be coming back!

    And wonderful service; our waiter had a great sense of humor, the food was perfect when brought to the table, the two steaks ordered were done as ordered. I was impressed with the food, as it was a hotel restaurant. The only downfall is that it was right below the hotel pool. We ate outside, and there must have been a birthday party for a young girl at the pool, because we could hear them singing.

    I was intrigued by 'Seafood Calzone' on the menu. Turned out to be a greasy deep fried empanada like concoction. It tasted cheap, greasy and unbelievably average for a restaurant of this stature. Great decor and ambience, decent wines, but poor quality food. Will not go back.

    it seems kind of risky to eat dinner at chain hotels these days-food is overpriced, mediocre, ambience bad. However, Il Terrazo was a very happy surprise. We ate there before running off to a concert in the Tampa area (a birthday weekend trip-so awesome in itself!). we did have a very quiet, well served dinner. we were one of two or three groups in the entire place at the time, so our server was not stretched thin at all. But I think the service would be excellent no matter what, you get that feeling, its that kind of place. I would rate the food as good, not excellent. It was a little heavy, unrefined, especially the pasta. I would go back, and try other dishes if I happen to stay at the hotel again-which would be a very nice treat!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 7/4/2013
    This restaurant is part of the Marriott so my expectations were not that high to begin with (most chain hotel restaurants are less than great). The service was adequate but lacked a certain professionalism and at first was attentive but as the restaurant filled up it was clear that the servers had to cover to many tables (for which I fault management and not the staff). The entrees sounded good but were a disappointment (both mine and my wife's) but they made up for it in the desserts. My wife have the Orange Grand Marnier Cannoli and I had the Flourless Chocolate cake ... both were exceptional. That said, I would not dine here again due to the overall food quality and typical Marriott Host service but I would order take-out desserts.

    This is a hidden treasure inside the downtown Marriott. The pasta is fresh, with some great vegetarian and fish entrees. Service was attentive and not stuffy. I was there with friends for an early Mother's Day dinner and plan to go back soon. The scallops were delicious, and the mushroom risotto also got raves.

    Nice decor overlooking Riverwalk in Tampa in Marriott Hotel...When we arried around 7:15PM the ladies room had needed attention...Veal chop was on the tough side....their signature potates where no more than baked potatoes bits with skins on it,similiar to what you would find at an IHOP...I would recommend the Ceasar salad (nicely made and tossed)...lobster bisque nothing special...service very good and attentive.

    We eat here on occasion, especially when we bring our boat to the marina at the hotel. It's very convenient for us when we do this. The service we've had on the few times we visited was great! The food was delicious. The atmosphere was very nice overlooking the water, not too many people, and quiet enough to have a pleasant conversation with your dinner companions. The menu is large enough to offer a nice sampling for just about everyone.

    My entree at Il Terrazzo was excellent, perfectly cooked scallops, sauteed with a scrumptious balsamic glaze with lovely cucumber essence and paper thin slivers of cucumber on a beautiful raw veggie base. The service was first rate, my waiter was very professional and attentive, appearing at just the right time when a drink needed re-filling or a plate needed to be taken away. My mojito from the bar was well made with lots of fresh mint. My only grumble was that my salad (which had a lovely dressing and beautiful fresh fennel) had some lettuce pieces going brown on the edges. I should have sent it back, but I didn't see the brown bits until I was halfway through. I would derfinitely dine here again, though. Everything else was excellent.

    Upscale hotel restaurant. Food and wine offerings were good. Menu was outdated and we were told a new one was in the works. The pepper didn't work either- a little strange. The food and service were good though. My entree was missing an ingredient but still very good. My colleagues finished their plates as well. Would bring a business lunch/dinner here again. We had plenty of time to talk, we weren't rushed and the ambiance was conducive to carrying on a conversation at th table.

    During a 5 day business meeting we enjoyed this lovely restaurant twice. Usually we choose to not dine in our hotel restaurant venues and prefer to find smaller local spots, but this was very very good. The swordfish and seabass were moist, well seasoned and in very nice portions. Our waiter was friendly, accomodating to our special food requests and offered sincere recommendations. The tables are spaced far enough apart to allow for easy conversation...which seems to be rarer to find these days. The Marriott hotel, of which this is a part of, was also exceptional in their service.

We had to explane the medical condition of a Senior at our table and in the end it worked out. The restraunt and the Server had no knowledge of our request included with the reservation.

    Excellent food. Good service. Great window view of the water. My only constructive feedback is that the menu is somewhat overpriced, likely because it is inside the Marriot and is close to convention center. Also, the ambiance could be better. The decor and interior feels like a hotel restaurant vs. having its own look and identity separate from the hotel. Nevertheless, the food was excellent and I would go back.

    We consider Il Terrazzo to be one of THE best restaurants in Tampa. It's one of the few places you can have a quiet, relaxed dining experience with great food, great water view and outstanding service. From a food perspective, they do a great job with local fish, in-house made pasta and veal and pork dishes as well.
