Terra Mia Restaurant Review
We made it to Palm Beach! Our resort is really nice and we are having a great time already. We don't have big plans for today, but that is what vacation is all about, right?
I love Italian food, that is no secret. When I heard a new Italian restaurant was opening in Orem Utah, I told Joshua we had to drive down and try it.
Terra Mia's food is fresh, fast, authentic Italian, at reasonable prices. I really liked the ambiance, lots of light and there is a huge tree in the middle of the restaurant. Yes, it is real:)
Terra Mia serves salads, pasta, and pizza. We sampled several menu items and they were all fantastic. I was actually surprised at how good everything was for "fast" Italian food. Terra Mia uses quality ingredients and focuses on the presentation of the food. The staff was very helpful and our food was delivered to our table in minutes.
The Caprese salad was one of our favorites. Toasted baguette with Roma tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil, and olive oil. A great starter to any Italian meal. The mozzarella was superb, the perfect saltiness. I can't believe they only charge $7.50.
Josh loved the Penne Terra Mia pasta, one of their signature dishes. Penne pasta is served with marinara sauce, Italian sausage, eggplant, mozzarella, egg slices, and parmesan cheese. Josh raved about how good the sauce was. The pasta was also cooked to perfection.
Now onto the pizza. I've been to Italy and fell in love with the pizza. Terra Mia's pizza is very authentic, it brought me back to my time in Italy. Again, they use the freshest ingredients which really makes a difference. They even had their pizza oven shipped in from Italy. They are serious about their pizza!
I had the Margherita pizza-marinara sauce, mozzarella, parmesan, olive oil, and fresh basil. It was excellent. They have mastered the perfect crust. The menu has a long list of pizzas to choose from or you can create your own. I highly recommend the Margherita, it is a classic.
I could of left the restaurant full and content, but Terra Mia serves gelato, one of my favorite desserts, so of course I had to try it out. Every day they have 12 differnet flavors of fresh gelato. I had a hard time choosing because every flavor looked amazing. I ended up ordering the hazelnut and coconut. Both were smooth and creamy. Josh tried the lemon gelato and it was very refreshing, I snuck a bite:)
Terra Mia's gelato is the BEST!! I have sampled a lot of gelato in Italy and in the states, we even had a gelato bar at our wedding, but Terra Mia's gelato wins hands down! It tastes just like the gelato in Italy. I can't wait to go back and try more flavors!
If you are in Utah and looking for a new place to try, go to Terra Mia in Orem. You won't be disappointed. The location is great, right by the movie theater and University Mall. The service is great, the atmosphere is fun, and most importantly the food is top notch. To view their complete menu, visit their website.
Today is Terra Mia's Grand Opening, stop in and receive 10% off of everything on the menu. What are you waiting for? There is fresh, fast, authentic Italian waiting for you!
