when it's full the noise level is overbearing. also the kitchen seemed to be overwhelmed again as it took 2 hrs in total for 2 of us to have dinner with just appetizer and main.
service was great as was the food.

Truly an outstanding experience. The menu is well done with diverse selection and quality ingredients. Ownership and waitstaff are friendly and professional.
In addition, the bar and eating areas are very welcoming.
Most importantly the patrons seem to enjoy their experience

We invited 2 other couples to join us last night, and everything went very well. We sat outside, and although it was chilly, the heaters kept us all warm. One menu did take flight and knocked over a glass of wine that shattered, but it was promptly cleaned up and another glass was at the ready!

We have eaten there several times and enjoyed the food. We ordered the special ..triple tail with linguine. Very disappointed. Fish was poached and had no taste over the lemon linguine. For others it might be delicious but it was not our taste.

The worst thing about this restaurant was the noise and on your survey could only choose from don’t recall, quiet, moderate or energetic, no option to tell truth which was awful. Whatever ambience this restaurant might have is shot to hell by so much noise, could hardly converse with someone sitting right to to me. Also, tables inside very close together or did it just seem like that because the table of 15 next to us with babies, children who would not stay seated and teenagers who had business elsewhere frequently. Food good, waiter doing best he could do considering trying to juggle lots of tables plus one with 15 unruly individuals. Would give restaurant one more chance by sitting outside.

Corrine was our server….the best ever. She knew we had a time schedule since we had show tickets and she made sure the service was quick. I had the Caesar salad and Wild Mushroom Ravioli…excellent. My friends had Veal Picatta and Eggplant parmigiana. Excellent also. A bit noisy but it was a Friday nite. I live in Fort Myers full-time so I am glad to see full restaurants.

Always enjoy Terra Nostra and frequently dine there. The Red Grouper Special I had tonight was fishy, but I am not a big fan of grouper for that reason. The other two who had the special enjoyed it. I think this was just a personal bias for me. The wine selection is always outstanding!!!!! The owners’ involvement on the floor is second to none.

While the service was fine we were disappointed with the food. It came out fast, almost too fast. My chicken parm was pretty ordinary and my wife did not care for her salmon.

Arrived a bit early for our New Year's Eve reservation, hoping to have a drink at the bar before our meal. Host escorted us to two empty seats and gave us the option of staying there for our meal or going to our table in 1/2 hour. We opted to stay at bar, which I think the host was glad of since it opened up our table for anyone who happened in on such a busy night. Bartender was prompt to come over and take our drink orders and give us the menu for the evening. Got the cheese plate to start with our drinks, then ordered some wine and entrees. Everything was delicious and staff was very attentive, again, even for a busy night. Great menu - can't wait to go back

While highly recommended, the wait time between ordering and a gentle reminder to the host 72 minutes after being seated regarding our two entrees was not anticipated. When brought to the attention of the wait team and the host, they seemed a little put off and offered no recourse with words. No apology was given. Drinks had to be asked to be refilled. One of the entrees, chicken piccata, was extremely salty.

All in all, disappointing for a holiday week given many choices in the area.

We've never had a bad experience at Terra Nostra, but last night the service was a little rough. We were there for three hours! Although we were with friends and spent quite a bit of time catching up, we had to summon our waiter several times ... to take our orders, clear the table, refill coffees, and so on. I assume they're suffering from the same labor shortage that every other restaurant is experiencing. Overall the food was good however my chicken marsala was swimming in sauce, to the point that if I had tipped my plate, it would've run out. The chicken was tender and flavorful, but a hodgepodge of pieces (thigh meat maybe?) that resembled trimmings. I was expecting a nice breast. I asked for the vegetables instead of the pasta (the menu sats "All chicken & veal accompaniments may be replaced with chef’s fresh market vegetables") and received a huge mound of mediocre spinach. It was OK, but I thought it was an interesting choice for "fresh market vegetables." On the plus side, they take reservations which helps during season.
