    My husband and I love the cozy and relax feeling in the restaurant. The lights are dim and the staff make you feel welcomed. The owner is so friendly and tries to talk to all the people. We ordered two dishes that came with homemade pasta which was delicious. Great tiramisu. Our waiter was awesome and made our dining experience even better. He was so attentive and did not rush us.

    While we don't go often it's odd that they have the same "specials" nearly every time. Food was good, nothing to complain about. Our server was totally unfamiliar with the bar and for some reason seemed to want us to order...the place was not crowded and we had explained we hadn't seen one another (two couples) in a while, etc. Overall it was just okay and we will go elsewhere for a while, maybe going here too often and it's gotten old.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 3/7/2012
    Overall the meal was great, however the service was our main issue. Our server basically seemed uninterested in my husband and I. He rapidly ran through the specials without explaining them, didnt take the time to attempt to understand what we replied back to him and was noticeably much friendlier to other tables he was serving. We actually asked for wine a total of three times before we actually got it - first asked our waiter who grabbed the glasses and disappeared, then asked the greeter who said he would tell the waiter, then had to ask the waiter again. Overall, as noted above the food was excellent but service could definitely use a lot of work.

    Service (from someone we have had before no less) was a bit off, perhaps there were some "more important" people there/regulars or something. Food good, not spot on as previously either. Good overall evening with two other couples, nothing "wrong" but not at the top of their game somehow. Still good food, good wine, very respectable service, just a little "off" to me.

    Authentic, excellent Italian cuisine in a caffe/trattoria venue with an authentic look and feel. My lunch guests are well-traveled Italians, and they loved it. They said it was a total winner and that I couldn't have made a better choice for their one-day visit. And I agree--which is why I chose it and why it's a favorite of mine. However, our 1:30 lunch was rushed (no crowds waiting or anything) and the server a little hover-y and a touch cool, which for me spoiled an otherwise perfect experience.

    The food was excellent. The assigned waiter was extremely busy and rather aloof; the manager/owner had to take and deliver our order. I would mitigate the waiter's attitude because it was New Year's Eve; however, we have had the same waiter on a previous occasion, and had the same problem.

    We were looking for a restaurant for a New Year's Eve dinner. The menu online looked wonderful. We were seated in what looked like the overflow room (it had no ambiance and hardly any other patrons). When we opened the menu, we were shocked to see they had replaced the menu prices with special prices with an upcharge of $10-$15.00 in some cases. Our table felt that was a bit sneaky. While leaving, we walked through live music and fun people, which we were not privy too stuck in the back. Other than that, the food and wine was excellent,

    Every time my parents visit, we take them to Terra Mia. We went this time for our 1st wedding anniversary with both sides of our family and dinner was delicious. As always. The food is so wonderfully authentic and simple that you couldn't ask for better Italian. It's not the easiest place to see from the road but if you know where it is, it's very popular among the locals. The staff is truly wonderful and extremely friendly. We always have a nice dinner at Terra Mia and we always leave wishing we had bigger stomachs to try more!

    TerraMia is solicited door to door and Food Writers in Orlando have been kind in their words about this place. Some have even wrote that it is the best Italian Restaurant in the Orlando area; it's NOT. It is compared to authentic restaurants in Italy (yes, the tourist ones that are bad). I have been to Italy many times and this place doesn't really come close. The lighting is non-existent and you really cannot see your food or the menu. The wait staff is arrogant and there is nothing here that is precious.

    Not impressed. Just another strip mall restaurant. Had a reservation and waited nearly 30 min. to sit in tables placed on top of each other. While most restaurants keep VIP seating discrete, Terra Mia had no problem seating 2 other tables ahead of the wait when more private booths became available. The server took our order and dropped our check. That was all we saw of him. I refilled my drink at the bar. I will not return nor recommend Terra Mia.

    As someone who has been unimpressed with the Orlando dining scene, I was pleasantly surprised by TerraMia. The three entrees my party had were just spot on --- a simple pasta dish and two fish (grouper and salmon). The wines by the glass were delicious and well chosen. The room is a bit small, and so can get noisy, but it has a good friendly feel, even if it's in a strip mall. My only complaint is that they did not have our OpenTable reservation --- and the host at the door didn't even know what OpenTable was. So, call, don't make your reservation online.
