Fantastic food here at this brilliant little place on the river side. I always go here with my family. Great menu. Go for the specials. But the menu is fantastic and the food is cooked and presented extremely well. This is a must eat restuarant. You will not regret it.

What a location and the staff so helpful but the menu is limited for such a prestigious restaurant. Only about 5 pasta dishes and those tasted were ok but only ok. Think the location and a setting is worth the visit but don't go just for the food!

We booked a birthday lunch thinking it would be very special as this is a beautiful setting. We were the only patrons, there was an intoxicating smell of varnish in the restaurant as a painter was was painting the window sills all around us. We asked for a table well away from the painter but was told that was the... More

For a few years we have tried to get to go tohave a meal here after hearing so much about the food and the Italian infuence. Where the Italian influence was from cannot be from the few prints on the wall or the furniture. The food did have an Italian influence but if Italian is your wish, not here... rather... More

We are a family of four with two kids aged 10 and 7 and enjoyed a lovely meal here last night - food was fresh and delicious, kids shared a spaghetti bolognese, good wine list. No calamari or line fish left which was a shame but shows how fresh it all is. A special family evening and friendly service. Would... More

We had again some really good food at Trattoria la Terrazza. The menu has changed a bit recently but remains more or less the same over the past ten years. Our favorite, the spaghettini prawns with a chili bite tomato sauce, is still great. The pavlova with berries is still great. Unfortunately, one of our favorites (mussels/chorizo) was dropped from...

Food and service excellent and can be recommended. Good views which was disrupted by the inclement weather but nevertheless still refreshing.

The restaurant is located in a nice spot on the river and is nicely done out But all our food was below average and expensive. We had to wait for 2 main courses of pasta almost 2 hours And the waitress never even apologized She gave us a silly answer that its the right way as the chef doesn't start... More

We went for dinner on a rather rainy night, the restaurant was full regardless and ther was excellent. Had a lovely cosy feel. The restaurant is located right on the banks of the lagoon, would make a fantastic lunch venue on a fair weathered dat. Good portioned Italian food. A level of cooking that is on par with any great... More
