La Terrazza is in the vein of an old school Italian restaurant. Small and cozy confines with a smattering of smallish tables with Black tablecloth and napkins. Suited best for parties of 4 or fewer at peak times. Antipasto, prisuitto and bruschetta are on the appetizer list. Classic red sauce dishes to classic chicken and veal plates. If you love classic bistro Italian with an old school feel you will be right at home. The restaurant offers beer and wine only.
Wow! Best Italian ever! Cute little place with authentic languages. Food was so fresh and Tiramisu was to die for!!!
La comida exelente y el servicio muy amable, familiar. La mejor comida italiana ..los canelones de langosta , exelente y el ricotta cheesecake, ufff mejor..
Absolutely excellent Italian food. To hear the veal being pounded was symphonic. I KNEW the food was fresh. And then I ate it: OHMYGOSH PERFECTION. Be sure to get the ricotta cheesecake if you’re ok with taking a ride on the wild/mild side. Loved it!
What an amazing spot in the heart of Ybor City. My wife and I enjoed fresh Italian cuisine that was served quickly. I didn’t know we needed a reservation but the hostess accommodated us anyways on a b.

Had dinner at La Terrazza on a Tuesday night. The food and service were nothing short of excellent. The host speaks to you in a mix of English and Italian. How cool is that. We had a great time. Good food. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Enjoy

This is a go-to destination for a casual to special occasions. Luigi and company create a soothing ambiance and the food on the plate is always impressive.
The food was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! The pasta was prepared to perfection and my boyfriend got the seafood pasta. The seafood portion was superb. The service was also wonderful. Both staff members worked together to provide the service. I especially loved that they worked to ensure food arrived at appropriate courses instead of loading our table up all at once. I never felt rushed and it was greatly appreciated. The prices were totally worth it as well! A new favorite of ours.
My wife and I try to eat out at La Terrazza whenever we can and when friends come to visit we often bring them here. It’s the only Place that I am aware of that has “Real Italian food” Small and cozy..
. little restaurant with outstanding Italian dishes and best service around. I encourage everyone to try it. Lihat Selengkapnya
My favorite Italian place in all of Tampa and maybe everywhere. They always have a special they offer and I often try it because literally everything is delicious. The atmosphere is quaint and the service never falters. This restaurant is in the heart of Ybor but the inside is quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of 7th street. Give it a try, I PROMISE you won’t be disappointed.

Quaint little Italian place. Food was real good. Service was prompt, professional and friendly. Kelly the hostess could not be nicer and we left with a hug from the waitress. I would have liked to given it a 3.5 rating which would have been perfect.

If lived in Tampa, I’d come here all the time! We found this place on yelp because we are not familiar with the area, and thank God! Delightful dishes with an authentic touch that takes the experience to the next level. This could be my favorite chicken parm and the best Alfredo sauce I’ve ever tried! For real!!!!!! Their service is excellent, please ask for Luigi to serve you when you come. The location is perfect because it’s in the middle of Ybor City’s night life and you can get submerged in the culture. Definitely coming back before we leave Tampa! Remember to tip your servers! @francescaMusica
Had to provide an update. We have eaten here a couple times a month since my last update. Have to say, if it is even possible, the food has only gotten better and the service???…’for getta about it’: Awesome, awesome, awesome! Luigi greets you at the door as if you were a long lost family member. Such a great guy. We have made it a mission to try everything on the menu and have yet to be disappointed. From the lasagna to the crab/lobster stuffed ravioli to the manicotti…simple delicious. This is a must for anyone looking for excellent Italian food in a quaint little restaurant with awesome service. Bon appetite!
Great Cuban food and good price for lunch. Bread is fresh daily and complementary. Super Staff gets you in and out in under an hour. Yes it is worth the drive from Downtown.
This will always remain as my most favorite Italian restaurant in the whole wide world. Their food is classic and leaving you wanting to come back for more over and over. It’s a very private location with relatively small dining space, so I highly recommend reservation. Wine list is top notch if you ask me, my favorite is Riesling. Service is absolute best, Luigi will make you feel like you’re a good old friend that’s conning by to have a dinner at the house you’re familiar with. Coming to La Terazza is like visiting family. Always wonderful and welcoming restaurant of Ybor City. If you ever come by tell Maria and Luigi Ilona said hello 🙂
Very good Italian restaurant. The pasta dishes were fresh just perfect. The staff is very dedicated to their customers.
Off the charts authentic Italian. Fab wine list!! Smoked salmon app was perfection and the lobster ravioli Pat and mom had will be hard to be topped. Veal piccata was thin and just the perfect amou…nt of lemon .
If you think Olive Garden is Italian…. then this may not be your place! This is Italian not Italian-American. Makes reservations bc the place is small and you are greeted by the owner with a hug and ciao Bella!!! I’m going back!!!!!! Lihat Selengkapnya
Thatsa great lasagna!!!! The minestrone was also awesome. Bon appetite!!!
I just ate here for the first time since moving to Tampa! Food is amazing.
Food was exceptional as well as service. Will definitely go back again & highly recommend to friends.
Amazing service, delicious food, and great atmosphere. The man who greeted us was so kind and genuinely wanted every customer to have a great experience. I’d recommend to everyone! This restaurant is a little slice of Italian heaven in Ybor City.

This place is excellent! The food is fresh and authentic. Wine choices are great, and service is highly attentive. I appreciate the ambiance which reminds me of little Italy! My date and I had fresh salad, excellent wine, fresh pasta, fresh bread! This place is a gem and I am so happy we’ve found it! We will be back! Hats off to the chef and excellent wait staff.
Cozy place, for a nice casual dinner. The food is the star in this restaurant: Delicious! Authentic Italian cuisine. Restaurant is located in the historic district of town, Ybor City.

AMAZING food, AMAZING staff, great atmosphere! When I am back in TPA, I will definitely return! You will not be disappointed if you choose this cozy, intamate amazing place!
Holy food coma! This place is one of the most authentic Italian restaurants I have been to outside of Italy. From everything to the size of the room, to the wait staff, to the meal itself- it screams Italy. I visited recently with a group of five and while we had a little slower of service than we were hoping for, and a few appetizers forgotten, I can honestly say as soon as the food was served there was not a peep spoken and every plate was wiped clean. I personally chose the Ravoli. As simple of a meal as it was it was delicious! After we scarfed down our meals we each got a dessert… like they say, when in Rome. I went for the Tiramisu as it was one of the few in-house made desserts. The only better Tiramisu I have had was in a small place in Florence where Grandma Italy made it herself… so that is saying a lot. I will be making another trip here soon to bring back my fiance so he can revel in La Terrazza’s deliciousness!

Why 5 stars? Because La Terrazza immediately jumps very high on Best Italian in Tampa Bay list. — — — I feel like I’ve typed this phrase 100 times in reviews over the last couple of months: “After visiting Italy for the first time this Spring, I’ve been on the hunt for the best Italian food in Tampa Bay…” And for attempt #101, La Terrazza was next on my list, and I have to say, this was one of my favorites yet! The only unfortunate part of this experience is that I felt that the wine was a bit pricier than I’m used to seeing. Because of this, we declined to get an appetizer so that we could save a little cash. I ordered the Frutti Di Mare, which was my favorite meal that I had in Italy, and this turned out to be really comparable to that! I’d still take the Italian version if push came to shove, but to get close enough to be in the same conversation is a damn impressive feat. My wife went with the Cheese Fiocchetti and it was absolutely amazing. Being able to go back and forth between my dish and her dish was perfection – they complimented each other so well. For dessert, we ordered some kind of ricotta pie, and unfortunately, that was the one miss of the evening – it was not something I’d order again. But the wife insisted on ordering this thing that was chocolate and ice cream in a frozen glass… I’m not sure what it was called, but it was really delicious. La Terrazza is definitely pretty high on my TB Italian rankings!
Located in the heart of Ybor City, in 7th Street which is like a baby version of Bourbon St. We had early dinner, beating the crowd. Both the food and the service are good. We ordered linguine with clams in white wine sauce and linguine bolognese. Between the two, we liked the linguine with clams better. The bolognese was good enough, not bad, but not great.
Great find in downtown Tampa Intimate and cozy, welcoming service Was looking for some authentic Italian pasta, certainly found it here!
We were looking for Italian for dinner and found this place on Yelp. The place is kind of easy to miss if you are not familiar with the area. The staff were very friendly and professional. We started with a Malbec wine and it was very good. We started with the caprese. The sliced fresh mozzarella and tomatoes topped with olive oil, oregano, and basil was a great start. Fresh and perfect, I would definitely get it again. The bread fell short, very crispy and hard. Not good for using with some olive oil or my Alfredo Sauce if I had any. I ordered Farfalle Panna e Piselli which is Bow-tie pasta with peas and ham in Alfredo sauce. This was a complete strike out for me. The Bow-tie pasta was cooked perfectly, however there was not much Alfredo sauce which made it dry. The ham was not the usual and seamed to be sliced lunch meat. The ham didn’t have good flavor and didn’t seam to be good quality. The peas were excellent. This to me fell short and seamed to be an imitation Italian dish someone threw together cheaply. I would give this place another try if in the area and try some other dishes. If the main course is the same quality I would probably say three stars. Could have been an off night when I visited.
The food was absolutely amazing! Service was outstanding. This was our first time there, and won’t be our last.
Awesome Italian place that reminded us of our favorite pasta restaurant back home in Milwaukee (Pasta Tree). The bruschetta was awesome, lots of tomato and very fresh. I had the fiochetti fromaggio (sp?) and my wife the chicken parm and both were excellent. Ate as much as I could given we couldn’t take any home with us, servings were very generous. Service was also very good and prices not too bad for a great meal like this.

This was an amazing dinner and experience. The food was incredible… like you were in a cozy restaurant in a small town in Italy. All pasta is homemade and prepared fresh when you order. From the app.
..etizers to dessert it’s wonderful….as are the people. Please go and sit and relax. That’s what I enjoyed almost more than the exquisite food… they didn’t rush you from one course to the next, they let you enjoy your food and each other.
Eating a great meal with your family and/or friends should be enjoyable and not on a timer. You get 100% of quality, both food and atmosphere here. Our new hometown favorite! 5 Stars isn’t enough! Lihat Selengkapnya

La Terrazza was the best Mexican restaurant I have eaten in for a long time. If I lived closer, I would eat there many more times. Service was excellent and atmosphere awsome!
Wow, what can I say. Everything was amazing. Didn’t know what to expect for an Italian spot in Ybor City, we are new to the Tampa area, but this place ranked right up there with the best places we’ve .
..been to in NYC. The appetizers were light and flavorful, we had the Caprese Salad and the Insalata Terraza. Pasta course was the special for the night, a freshly made fettuccini in a lamb ragu. Main course was the pork medallions and a veal scalloppine with marsala.
All the dishes were amazing. Service was great, and the manager, possibly the owner, was attentive and engaged. From the east coast of Italy, it was enjoyable to see not only his passion for the establishment, but for those he served.
Overall an incredible experience, can’t wait to go back. Lihat Selengkapnya
I went here a few weeks ago on a double date. The place is small but the food was great! We started out by ordering a bottle of wine and an appetizer bruschetta. It was very fresh and delish, we were debating on who should have the last piece, haha. Two of us ordered veal dishes, plus one chicken parmasean and shrimp ravioli. I ordered the veal marsala and it was great! The veal was pounced thinly and there was a lot of sauce and mushrooms which I love. The au’ gratin potatoes were the best ones I have had out! The veggies were crisp and cooked to perfection which is hard to do. My boyfriend got the chicken parmasean and it was also great, fresh mozzarella and great sauce. The spaghetti on the side just tastes like that, lol. I didn’t try the ravioli because of a shellfish allergy but she loved it. Can’t wait to try it again!

Authentic Italian (almost as good as mine) – great Chianti and service.
I understand how this place gets great reviews. Located in downtown historic Ybor they serve authentic Italian cuisine which is very tasty. The rest of the experience was less impressive however, including parking which was an issue. Our table was very close to other tables and you could here every word spoken. It was very warm inside the restaurant and we never really knew who was serving us (about 4 different people helped us and service wasn’t attentive). I had the Fiocchetti de formaggio which was excellent. My wife had the veal scalloppini piccata which was very light but nothing special. I would definitely recommend ordering any type of pasta as this seems to be their biggest strength. Overall a good experience that could have been great with better service and atmosphere.
