    Enjoyed the fiochetti peara robla with San Martin Prosecco from Bardolino, a wine new to us, followed by the pizza salad, ordered without oregano. Pizza came with very light Caesar dressing but no feta or mozzarella cheese, no olives and only one cherry tomato cut in half. Far too many cucumber pieces but few radishes. Restaurant still hasn’t solved their wine list problems—same wine listed on different pages at different prices. Aside from that, our server was very attentive!!!!

    The waitress appeared to be annoyed with us asking for an extra beverage list as well as questions about the menu. Took forever to take are order. She never responded every time someone said thank you. Did not seem to be happy to be there. Our reservation was at 5 pm not like we where a later customer.

    I visited Terra & Acqua with my wife for a date night. We had an excellent experience as always, food was delicious and staff was excellent. Kayla helped us pick out the perfect bottle of wine to go with our dinner. This is our favorite date night spot and we drive two and a half hours to make it happen. We will be returning soon.

    We went on Mother's Day and it was moderately busy. The service as good. Our 1st issue was with the water. It's brought out in a bottle, no ice or lemon. It tasted terrible. We asked for lemons and that didn't help, had to order sodas. The foccacia bread was great, but you do have to pay for it. Of the 3 different salads we got 2 were missing something, mine salt and the ceasar was oddly flavorless. My chicken parm and mashed potatoes seemed to be unseasoned, I asked for salt and that made a huge difference. The lobster ravioli also needed salt, but the other pasta dish was inedible. Very sweet and sticky/syrupy cheese sauce. We opted not to try dessert. Maybe it as an off night for them, but we probably won't try it again.

    Overall, the restaurant experience was poor. It was very noisy and the food was very disappointing. I ordered a grilled octopus salad appetizer, and the octopus was not very tender and there was very little of it. The gluten-free pIzza  crust was gummy although the toppings were OK. My husband ordered pappardelle with wild boar, and the pasta was dry and stuck together, and the boar was overdone. The prices were definitely too high for what we got. Overall, it was a poor experience. We would never return.  Despite all of this, I must say the waitress worked very hard.  The prices were definitely too high for what we got.

    We have been there many times before and the last 2 times we’re definitely not as satisfying as before. We ordered the pasta with wild boar and it used to be shredded meat and it was quite tender and delicious but this time the meat was in chunks and it was very tough. Also we waited about 40 mins for our food to arrive so when it wasn’t edible we were offered to order a different entree but didn’t have enough time as we were headed to a concert and had a time constraint. The food is definitely not like it used to be. Very sad and disappointing as this was once our favorite Italian restaurant in the area. We are residents of St. Augustine and it’s hard to find restaurants that realize that tourists usually don’t return but residents need to experience consistency. Honestly not sure we will return in the future 😩

    Excellent service. Like many places since the Pandemic, they turn over staff a lot. New fellow- very professional. The steak was perfect. The lobster ravioli in a pink sauce was very well received, the veal marsala was excellent as usual. The swordfish was cut a little too thin, making it almost impossible to cook medium as preferred, so it came well done and a tad dry-the only disappointment. We did not order appetizers this trip, but we know the shrimp avocado toast is outstanding.

    As good as it gets for authentic Italian. By far the best pizza in northern Florida! The Tuscan born chef owner is a master of his menu and disappointments are rare. Pastas rate outstanding across the board! The new happy hour not only makes one happy but fills one’s belly at a rare bargain these days…and the wine selection is top notch.

    The lobster ravioli had little flavor but the other entree with the balsamic pears and pasta purses w/cheese was good. Both meals needed salt and the ravioli needed parmesan cheese topping. Our waitress started out decent but as the meal went on she was less than stellar. She overflowed the beer and came back with a napkin and placed under the glass, not bothering to get the excess beer off the table or to take the sopping napkin away. Also our meal was brought by a runner and the waitress didn't come to see how it was thereby having us wait until the food was almost cold to get salt and cheese. Overall it wasn't horrible but it isn't our list to return for another evening.

    Disappointing! The focaccia bread was not baked long enough - not crispy at all. Should have sent it back. Did send back my entree - Tagiatelle with beef ragu. The ragu was just awful. Besides being a bit cold - it had no taste which was very surprising. Something has changed. Food is not as good as usual. We will be taking a break from Terra & Acqua.

    The food was very good, as usual, but one of our foursome had to wait at least 15 minutes for her main course after 3 of us were served - which made for an uncomfortable experience. And there was no attempt to compensate us for this oversight. At least a manager should have visited our table and apologized.

    I had the swordfish that was on special. It was very fresh and perfectly prepared. The accompaniments of farro salad and green beans were delicious. My husband had his favorite..linguine with white clam sauce. It seems to get better every time he has it. We are leaving soon to go north. When we return next year, we will love going back to Terra and Acqua.
