What a treasure in the heart of Ybor City's buzz and next to the Italian Club (which has a wonderful history for the city of Tampa). We were a party of 2, and called to book a few days in advance and had a wonderful window table. The restaurant was humming by 7:30 - 8 pm and the service was... More

The food was just out of this world tasty, made me feel like I'm back in Italy. Service was excellent, the owner, who is an Italian, and his wife greeted us with a smile and made sure everything was perfect, they really made us feel like we were special guests there. This is my new favorite place in Tampa!

The owner greeted us on entry and was super friendly throughout the course of the meal (but not intrusive). The food was very tasty, bruschetta was a liiiittle bland but I could forgive it, I had the rolled chicken breast which was really very nice, reasonably priced, I would definitely come back

I worked Ybor City for years. My favorite place to eat is La Terrazza. Authentic Italian service and food. Limited seating and average ambiance. Great food and fantastic service. Must try!

An intimate mom and pop with authentic Sicilian and Italian recipes. Can work as a classy night out on the town, or as we saw one large family which placed several small tables together to form one long linen covered slab, laden with all the fixings of an Italian home cooked meal. The maître d' truly loved his work and... More

This was one of the best meals we've had in a long time. We travel to Italy for business and pleasure, and La Terrazza made us feel like we were back in Italy. The food and the service were fantastic, and I highly recommend dining here.

I was in Tampa for business for five days at the beginning of November. I visited this restaurant based upon the TA recommendation. I do that routinely as I travel frequently. La Terrazza is rated as the number one restaurant in Tampa and I certainly agree. The food was incredible and the service was immaculate. The Italian beer I enjoyed... More

A Small classic traditional Northern Italian restaurant replete with several staff members that have been a part of the entire 20+ year history. Beyond that the food is excellent and the service good. I fumbled some potatoes and splashed myself with delicious tuna infused wine and garlic sauce. Kelly did not miss a beat and offered up a Tide pen... More
