We were driving down San Carlos Blvd looking for a place to eat and happened by this gem. We started with the Salad Montanheira and we were smitten. We both had the specials and we weren't disappointed. If you are looking for good Italian food and great service, Terra Nostra is definitely worth a stop!

This new establishment inhabits what I call the “bad luck” space on San Carlos Boulevard, by the Target store. I’ve lived in the area for four years and Terra Nostra is the third restaurant hoping to succeed in this location. Terra Nostra is not really new; they relocated from Fort Myers Beach so they may have a following. They also... More

Well here is a newly transplanted Italian restaurant from the island that has been a long time, and well known provider in the area. New location near Target is well designed with covered outside dining, inside table seating and large psychedelic bar occupying most of the middle restaurant. Friendly waitstaff and apparently excellent personal service from the passionate owners. Food... More

I liked this resturant when it was on the beach. New place is also great food. A little pricey for pasta (that did not include a salad). $20+ for most entrées. Service good. Atmosphere nice - not beachy. People dressed up a little.

What a treat to have one of our long time favorite restaurants move from Fort Myers Beach to next to Target on San Carlos Blvd. Went on Saturday night with friends and all four of us thought our meals were delicious. My stuffed shells with meatballs and sausage special was perfect. My husband had spaghetti with oil and garlic, he... More

Fernando and his wife Sol have reopened Terra Nostra but a t a new location off the island on San Carlos Rd. by Target. They have brought back their flair for preparing Italian food. The EggPlant Parmiagiana and Veal Marsala were great. The interior is fabulous with a "fancy" bar layout and a nice outside eating area.

I absolutely love this place and hope it reopens after the construction calms down. The food is so good I could eat there often. I usually order the lasagna bolonegise and get so much I take some home. The people remember us every year when we arrive.

Fernando was a marvellous host and most accomadating, but like many businesses in Fort Myers Beach there are not enough patrons to particularly with the traffic problems and the short tourist season to survive.

Never a bad meal, just wish they were a little further out of "crazy zone" the traffic and wait time to get there is sometimes frustrating. Service is always on point and coming from a large Italian family I highly recommend this restaurant even the Veal Parm is excellent!

Excellent traditional Italian. Red sauce favorites and plenty of meat and poultry dishes. Nice staff, good service, reasonable.
