Cuisine: Italian, Pizza, Vegetarian
Price Point: Mains from $15 - $30

Say ‘ciao’ to this traditional Italian spot, which does a mean line in authentic Neapolitan pizzas as well as hearty pasta like your mama used to make.

Terra Mia is located in a period building in the heart of historic Arrowtown. Scrubbed wooden surfaces, cheerful hanging baskets and classic earthenware crockery combine to create a rustic, welcoming dining experience.

When it comes to certain things Italians do it better, and that is definitely the case with pizza. Terra Mia’s are hand stretched and cooked for exactly 90 seconds, resulting in light, airy crusts and parchment-thin bases, the perfect vessel for mouth-watering toppings such as mozzarella and cured meats. Don’t miss the punchy sardine, ndjua and olive option.

The menu is sourced locally where possible, with key ingredients imported direct from the Motherland. It just wouldn’t be real Italian food without pecorino and pancetta after all!

End your meal on a sweet note with an espresso and selection of beautifully presented Italian pastries… Or another glass of Italian beer. Both will leave you with a warm, fuzzy feeling and the desire to visit again ASAP!

Great little Italian gem in Arrowtown. The staff are friendly & accommodating. We have some dietary intolerances and the menu was able to cater for this with pasta options and desserts. Our kids loved the Gelato so much we went back the next night just for that. The restaurant has a good mix of inside & outside dining. Would book again next when next visiting Arrowtown.

We had a Pizza and two pasta and dessert. They are all delicious!! Good service and nice spot in Arrowtown. I'm sure they are the best Italian restaurant in Otago. High recommend for everyone. Especially Pizza!! They import from great ingredients from Italy. They have passion and good heart that's why make beautiful dishes.

We arrived at Terra Mia to find a table in a prime spot had been reserved. The friendly staff were quick to offer us the option to sit anywhere in the restaurant. We chose a quiet corner as we had our 6 month old daughter with us. They quickly helped us with a high chair - its so helpful when restaurants are baby friendly!

The food served was spectacular. We shared the meatballs and calamari as a starter. The meatballs in particular were delicious. For mains we had a mushroom pizza and the frutti di mare pizza. The pizza was cooked properly in a woodfired oven but the real winner was the pasta which had bags of flavour for such a simple dish. We could not manage a dessert despite being tempted by the cabinet selection.

Overall I was really impressed by the attentive service, the faultless food and the great atmosphere. I will definitely be returning!

Good service and very good proper authentic italian food.

We didn't realise it was the Gibbston Valley Winery venue,(and so only GV wines available) The experience would've been much better if there was a proper winelist with overseas wine options and more variety from other regions in Australia and NZ. Bit of a shame to not be able to pair the food with a proper italian or french red.

Mamma Mia what a meal. The meals were fantastic and incredibly tasty. Generous portions. The service was also outstanding. We dined with our two children (9 & 7yrs) and the staff were very attentive. We had the vegetarian pizza and mushroom pasta both to die for yummy. Our normally fussy girls loved their kids meal which was very economic while including a drink, main and dessert. Well earned 5 stars.

We all enjoyed our lunch at Terra Mia and my cannelloni was excellent. We all had calamari to start and they were nicely presented but could have been a bit more cooked.
Service was friendly and quick and we would definitely return.
