Terrazza is a casual, Italian chophouse providing both indoor and outdoor dining all day, seven days a week. Focussing on authentic Italian cuisine, Terrazza has a stylish and modern atmosphere with an Italian twist.

All of the ingredients at Terrazza were locally produced and combined to create a wonderfully authentic Italian menu, which we struggled to choose from. We were seated outside on sofa style seating and overlooked the swimming pool and cabanas, which has been impressively lit up to enhance to modern atmosphere.

We began with a few pre-dinner cocktails. The first of these was the Skybar Martini, which included Stolichnaya vanilla vodka, strawberries and coconut, a very tropical and summery combination. The second was a passion fruit margarita, which included Don Julio Blanco Tequila, agave nectar, fresh passion fruit and a mescal float. Another summery cocktail, this was particularly sweet and fruity and the other ingredients did not overly mask the tequila.

“Every flavour, although many were strong, was combined beautifully.”

The third cocktail was a pear flower cocktail, which included Grey Goose La Poire vodka, St Germain, lemon juice, simple syrup and red grapefruit juice. This was a particularly refreshing cocktail, not too sweet and beautifully served. The fourth and final cocktail we sampled was the fresh apple martini. Made with Belvadere vodka, apple juice, agave nectar and lemon juice, the martini has a beautiful taste and the apple flavours were not excessively strong.

For my starter I chose a traditional Italian starter of imported burrata, homestead tomatoes, basil and saba. The saba really enhanced the flavour of the cheese and was extremely delicious. My guest chose the daily special, which included king prawns with cherry tomatoes, coated with a fresh garlic drizzle. Although simple, the beautiful flavours of the locally produced ingredients really shone through. We also sampled a third starter, fettuccine Bolognese. This included fettuccine pasta, a sauce of beef, veal and pork served with Parmesan. Simple but delightful, the sauce was rich and extremely delicious.

For my main course I chose a crispy pounded veal chop served with wild arugala, cherry tomatoes, red onion salad and a balsamic vinaigrette. The veal was beautifully cooked and the unusual style of preparation really enhanced the flavour. Every flavour, although many were strong, this was combined beautifully and the vinaigrette really elevated the dish.

My guest enjoyed a main course of 22oz dry aged bone-in New York strip steak served with porcini butter. The steak was beautifully prepared and cooked as requested. The porcini butter was also made in-house and the natural flavour of the mushrooms really enhanced the steak’s flavour, perfect to enjoy under the beautiful outdoor lights.
