    This was our fourth visit in less than a month . We have had out of town guests and wanted to share the great food and service we have experienced at Terra & Acqua. Last night we had a new waitress-new to us, not necessarily new. One of our guest’s meal was cold and as we could not find our waitress, we asked another if she could get it warmed up. After a good ten minutes or more our waitress finally brought back the food. We had to ask for Parmesan when in previous visits waitstaff always brought it when delivering our food. It wasn’t terrible, just not the impeccable service we have come to expect.

    Good food, good friends. Pet peeve. Restaurants that are mainly Italian serving bread only as an appetizer where you have to pay for it.

    We love Terra &Aqua. The food is always first rate and delicious. Our server was busy but very attentive. We loved the appetizer Frito Misto with shrimp and calamari. People in our party had the linguini with clams which was delicious, the pizzas are delicious and I had the gnocchi with Gorgonzola which I always get when I’m here. So light with the creamy Gorgonzola sauce. Delicious! Desserts are a specialty as well. I recommend the Torta de la Nonna and the limoncello flute. My son had the profiteroles which were creamy and very chocolatey! Overall first class experience as always!

    First time here. Went for pizza with two friends. Pizza was very good. Server was not so good, didn't come by for quite a while after we were all seated, then hovered over us to get the paid bill that we were still figuring out who was paying for what. She came back four times just to get the paid bill. Sat at a booth that was way too tight for anyone other than a slim person.

    Party of 6. We were seated right away. It was about 10 minutes before our waitress came over to take our drink/appetizer order. We ordered bruschetta and a fried appetizer. After about 25 minutes she returned with our drinks and informed us that an item in our fried appetizer was unavailable and asked if we wanted something else. We ordered another bruschetta instead. We also asked her to take our dinner order. About 10 minutes later (35 minutes after the original order-for a cold appetizer) she brought 1 of the bruschetta orders. 10 minutes after that the 2nd bruschetta order came. A little after that our dinners came. 1 item was not what was ordered and had to be re-ordered of course with an additional wait time. 2 of the orders that came out were not as described on the menu and the portion would be considered small at best. We were never offered bread or more drinks, told the specials, or offered grated cheese for our meals. Although it was busy for a Wednesday night, there were also several empty tables. While our waitress was rarely seen, the waiter in our area was very attentive to his customers. When we received our bill the appetizer that we cancelled was still on the bill, as well as the wrong dinner item and the correct item ordered. We flagged down the manager who promptly had the bill corrected. Because we had a party of 6 a 20% tip was automatically added, but on this occasion it most definitely was not deserved.

    Everything we ordered was delicious! The Frito Misto was incredibly flavorful. The Polpo all griglia was so tender with lots of great veggies on the plate. Ravioli Di Zucca , just delicious and fantastic pasta. My spouse had the Gamberoni which was delightful but felt there was something in their sauce that was an unexpected flavor. Still loved the dish but felt it was an unnecessary addition. Prices were the best we have encountered on any vacation.

    Visiting the area we found this restaurant through Open Table. Thought it would be a little more upscale, but turned out a nice casual night. Actually, it was off the beaten path, so frequented by locals. Food better then average, service better then average... all in all great meal, better value! Salmon recommended, brick chicken also recommended. Was happy with the food and service, much happier when the bill came. 20% service for over 6 people well worth it... left a little extra. Worth a visit, especially if you are local to the area.

    It took forever to get our simple vegetarian pasta dishes, but steaks came out right a way? Very strange. I had the pear pocket pasta and did not feel well an hour after eating there. Our waitress was nice, but wayyyyy too swamped, and this is with us having a reservation weeks in advance. I also requested to be by a window (when we booked) and we were placed behind a large party who had the view of the window. Overall, the atmosphere was nice, the food made me ill and was overpriced. I would not return

    Only delivered one of the two ordered appetizers. They were out of several items (maybe with good business during a pre-holiday weekend not a bad thing). Items ordered were very good. Three of us got the Lobster Ravioli, not exactly as expected but tasty. One got the Butternut squash ravioli and thought it was delicious.

    I have been told before do not eat at a nice restaurant on Sunday because a good chef needs time off. We had been here before and enjoyed it. This visit was different. I ordered the tagliatelle with plum tomatoes, porcini and pancetta. The result was an overcooked pile of mush. Another person in our party ordered the grilled lobster and it came out curled up and overcooked and dried out. The third party ordered the cioppino it was in a vat of tomato paste. Where was the broth?? Everything was expensive, awful and inedible. We paid and left the bulk of the food on the table.
