Terra Mia Italian Restaurant at Parkplace at Heathrow in Lake Mary

After a long day at the office on Friday we were ready for a late lunch (it was already 5pm) so we decided to walk down the street at Park Place at Heathrow and enjoy some delicious Italian food on the patio of Terra Mia. Our timing was bad though because this quaint little Italian Trattoria and Wine Bar which has soon become one of Lake Mary/Heathrow’s most popular Italian restaurants, was just in the middle of “rush hour”, so the waiting time would have been too long (even though only 20 minutes) for two starved, food craving individuals. Even though we didn’t dine at Terra Mia this time, I still wanted to mention it here because we have dined/lunched here before and loved it! No wonder: they were voted one of Orlando’s Best Kept Secrets by Seminole Magazine! (There is another location in Altamonte Springs; the one in Lake Mary opened this summer 2008)

What makes Terra Mia in Lake Mary so special is definitely the unique atmosphere. It is only a small restaurant but always busy. In fact, you might think you are in a typical Italian trattoria in Chicago or New York. No wonder Terra Mia is so successful – if you’re looking for big city dining and atmosphere in Lake Mary, this is the place to go! Apart from that, their food and wines are excellent and it is a great place to meet with friends for some wine and fresh Italian specialties. BTW, Panninis make for a great lunch.

Terra Mia is located at Parkplace at Heathrow, the plaza facing Colonial Town Park on the other site of H.E. Thomas at the corner with International Drive in Lake Mary. Visit them online at
