    There are lots of italian restaurants for us to choose from in Fort Myers however our favorite "go-to" is Terra Nostra. This restaurant is unfappable! It's exactly what we want: Always reliable, great staff, exceptional wine list, and consistent high-quality recipes made with top-quality ingredients. Highly recommended!

    It was a very loud night, and it was our first time there ! One of the employees did tell us it was crazy tonight due to a cigar function . Employees were running all over and it was a very anxious atmosphere. Our martinis had the wrong olives, did not see our waitress for a very long time, so I went to the bar and asked for correct olives. Bread is served automatically they said , but we ordered meatball appetizer and had to ask a helper to get our bread. Again, where was our waitress? Ordered salads , wrong dressing , different girl and she fixed it right away . Meal was great , absolutely delicious . Finally our own waitress appears to ask if we want dessert , We ordered dessert and 2 cappuccinos- took forever Waitress appears and says almost ready , they had to go to Target for milk . Cappuccinos arrive one totally hot one totally cold !! Told her she was going to go get one more - we already mixed ours and we were fine . Our bill was $185 , food was great , we were not treated well . As previously stated maybe due to the cigar function so there is a possibility of trying it one more time . But even with the cappuccino situation ,could of removed the dessert from the bill. We aren’t high maintenance people but we know they should of done something .

    This is our favorite local restaurant. We dine here often and are recognized by many staff. I had made reservations for a birthday dinner for my husband. When we arrived (a few minutes early), there was no seating available. We ended up eating at the bar next to the front door. The overloaded bartender was as gracious as possible (she knows us) but forgot a few things, clearly because she was swamped. Thus was not the nice evening out I had hoped for. People continued streaming through the doors and somehow most of them were seated (we chose not to dine outside because it was uncomfortably warm and humid. It was disappointing that the establishment could not take care of some “regulars.”

    As always, food and service are outstanding. We always enjoy a great dinner. The lasagna, veal marsala and chicken parm were prepared as what we expect. Issues were the mussels/chorizo; there were 2 small pieces chorizo which was disappointing. Our daughter ordered the tiramisu, very good but the cream on top had refrigerator burn. The cake itself moist, tasty and fresh. I assume it was where it was stored. The tomato/basil soup was so tasty and flavorful. We feel Terra Nostra is one of the best restaurants in the area and we could dine there daily.

    On the anniversary of my fathers passing, we go out to an Italian restaurant and eat pasta, which was my dads favorite food! We brought my mom with to our Fl home and took her out on Sat, in honor of my Dad. The meal was stellar, the service was top notch and our experience was memorable. My mother started talking with the owner on the way out and she had planned to buy a jar of sauce, but he gave it to her. We will always visit, when we day at our house in FL. Highly recommend this special place!!

    We LOVE Terra Nostra and every meal has been wonderful under these owners. This particular evening though, I ordered the fish special. Coconut crusted Mahi. It was fishy, over cooked and dry. Zero flavor. No indication it was coconut crusted. Mango salsa no flavor. Total disappointment. I will stay away from fish at Terra Nostra in the future. This one of our very favorite restaurants. Never been disappointed before, but this was a total miss. The other 3 with me enjoyed their meals as always.

    We had a great time at this restaurant, our first time there and certainly not our last. The service was phenomenal, and they went out of their way to make something for one of our guests that was off menu. Everything was amazing! Best lamb I’ve had in my entire life. Can’t wait to get back.
