Italian
Italy is a country of breathtaking beauty - both the land and the people. It is this beauty that is the inspiration for Bonterra, a lively and spirited Italian Trattoria.

Chef Glen Manzer prepares contemporary Italian fare with the emphasis on simple, fresh ingredients with an exciting twist. Experience the passions of Italy in our casual dining room; on our stunning Tuscan terrace; or in the Wine Room for a more private event.

Our vibrant cuisine perfectly reflects the passions, style, and gusto that is the hallmark the Italian way of life.

PLEASE NOTE: Reservations for the patio are available. There is a firm two hour time limit for outdoor bookings. Parties greater than 6 will be organized into separate tables, and groups larger than 10 will be expected to commit to a minimum spend. Once the outdoor area has been fully booked, all other reservations default to indoor seating. *Patio is weather dependent

Dined on their beautiful terrace next to one of the cozy fireplaces. Very nice menu - lots of variety in the dishes. Service was excellent and we had a fun and enjoyable evening.

The heaters were on full blast and we were told they could not turn them down. We were melting! Server was very nice but very slow. We had to wait for our wine and our bill a very long time. We felt forgotten.

Friendly staff and amazing food. Felt well taken care of during our time. Manager actually came around twice to check on us and not in an annoying way. Patio had great atmosphere with heaters to take the chill off

Sitting outside at the terrace was beautiful. I felt like we were in Italy. I loved the heat lamps - felt warm and cozy but it was a smidge too hot. Food and service was amazing. Thanks so much!

My husband and I love the outdoor patio seating. It was a bit chilly that evening, but when the heaters were turned on, everything was nice and cozy. We were in a bit of a hurry to eat before attending another engagement, and the ever-present staff made sure everything was delivered to us with enough time to spare. The drinks were great, the atmosphere was heavenly, and the food was outstanding.
Thank you, Bonaterra!

Took my husband there for his first time, loved the flat iron steak and the crispy potatoes. And the Lemon Olive Oil Cake was awesome for dessert.

Food was excellent as usual, service seemed rushed at the table, server did not seem to have much time for us. Waited a good 20 minutes for our server to bring the check and another 10 for the machine, we had other plans after dinner so the wait was a bit of an inconvenience.

Early dinner due to late booking the reservation.
Excellent starters and shares: Olives, Garlic Shrimp, Caesar Salad.
Wife had the steak, I had the arrabbiata with mussels, both excellent.
Ordered extra crostini to soak up the sauce.

Recommended. We will return.

Service was a bit slow between starters and mains, were offered a complimentary cocktail to make up for it. And it did.

Lovely meal, I had the spaghetti arrabiata which was delicious albeit very saucy, felt a bit more like a soup once I’d eaten the pasta! Atmosphere is lovely, the patio is beautiful and the food is delicious. The only down side is the 2 hour seating limit. The time itself isn’t an issue but the servers make you feel like you’re going to be cutting it close! It’s impressed upon you straight away you only have 2 hours and our glasses were topped up after what felt like every sip! The staff could definitely be more relaxed about the time frame as for 2 people there was no way we were going over the time
