Italian Trattoria Lunch at Terra Costa in Shizuoka City!

Service: kind, smiling attentive
Equipment and facilities: very clean overall. Excellent separate gender wwashroom. Car park
Prices: very reasonable
Strong points:
fine Italian style trattoria. Excellent local products. Large portions.

I must admit it was a surprise to find this uncomplicated, modest and above average Italian trattoria along the sea shore in South Shizuoka away from the crowds and even surprised to find it crowded!
If you go there for lunch make a point to reserve your seats (actually you will be offered a plate of fried potatoes for the effort! good hospitality!)!

They do have a long enough menu but before you check the other menu know that the best deal is to choose a “set menu” as in above picture!
If you are two, three of more you will be able to choose all different dishes to share together!
The three of us opted for the 1,630 yen (tax included) menu with an original ice tea, a starters plate and a choice of pizza, pasta and risotto each! Plus a choice of desserts and coffee!
Very reasonable when you consider the size of the portions!

Incidentally there is also an enormous set lunch for two at 3,700 ye, tax included for two persons!

Let me show the menus for complete perusal!

The pizza menu!

The Pasta menu, part 1!

The pasta part 2 and risotto menu!

The sweets and cakes menu!

Now, what did we share?

The plate of starters/antipasti misto!
This was the main reason we ended up with full stomachs at the end! Well above average and excellent fresh produce!

Quatro formaggio/four cheese pizza!

Crab tomato sauce spaghetti!

Porcini mushrooms cream risotto!

Chocolate cake, tiramisu and creme brulee for dessert!
And coffee to wash it down.
Pity we were driving, otherwise a glass of wine would have been welcome! LOL
