We had a nice seat by the fireplace but it took about 10-15 minutes before anyone came to take our drink orders. Salmon was good and a nice size portion. They serve “seasonal vegetables” and “starch” with their main courses. Be sure to ask what they are in case they aren’t to your liking, they will substitute. After finishing our... More

Had a business meeting at this restaurant last night and discovered a Livermore gem. I had their Salmone Livornese and it was cooked to perfection. It's authentic Italian food in a warm atmosphere and great staff. In fact, the staff gets 5 stars, they were all friendly and professional. The next time we are driving past Livermore, I will plan...

Don't be put off by the location in a shopping center. Terra Mia is neo-industrial inside, high ceilings, open kitchen. The menu looks Italian, the prices look American. One thing about the kitchen that bothered me was the warming lamps on the service counter. Food was steaming off the stove, warm by the time it was delivered. Dinner for five... More

We bought tickets for the New Year's celebration here and arrived as it said in the invitation at 10:30 all dressed up and excited. Little did we know that we had to stand an hour by the door shivering from the cold air, bumping into people - the place wasn't ready. My boyfriend has a sore knees and they were... More

This is a popular place for lunch and dinner. The decor is full with some faux exposed brick and exposed HVAC ducts. They do very nice pizza and pasta dishes. Tonight I had their rib eye which was very large. The wait staff was attentive and helpful, even checking with the kitchen staff when I had a question about the... More

We dined here the night before Thanksgiving. The restaurant was full. The noise level was very low. The service was very good from our Italian waiter. The food is excellent. I had the special, Cod served with a sauce of tomatoes, capers, mushrooms. Just delicious. The wine list is reasonably priced with lots of good Italian wines. Our server was... More

They have good Italian food and the service is normally excellent. We really enjoy their special event nights during the holidays. Their take out food is also good.
