Nice restaurant, small menu. I've enjoyed everything I've tried. The bar is small , but well stocked. Locally owned and operated, which is always a plus. The best French onion soup in town.

We went with our two teenage daughters for a nice family Valentine dinner. It was absolutely delicious, complete with a cotton candy baked Alaska! Fabulous, and we even received a family photo to take home with us. Two thumbs up!!

The restaurant is cozy, and the staff and the food are both top notch. I go back at least once a week.

We went on a Saturday evening. It wasn't very crowded. I had stuffed shrimp and y spouse had a scallops over pasta. Both were OK, but nothing special. I had a potato and bacon soup which strangely didn't have potatoes visible. It was watery with bacon visible I can't say anything was awful. It wasn't. The service was very good.... More

Warm and inviting atmosphere and friendly staff are just the beginning to a wonderful dining experience. We started off with shrimp cocktail & fried calamari, both very fresh and paired well. Our entrees were beyond our expectation. Delectable braised lamb shank over a rich & creamy risotto was outstanding. A generous portion that I took home for leftovers. My husbands... More

Lobster Franchise over pasta is to die for. Service is top notch. Owner Bridget is over the top in making your special day so relaxing she takes care of everything. If you need a place for lunch,dinner or any special occasion Ecce is the place.

We had the chicken fracaise & pumpkin ravioli. The chicken was done right with an ever so light breading & lovely, biting lemon sauce. The pumpkin ravioli was outstanding. It was like butter. It melted in your mouth & could honestly be an entree or a dessert. For dessert we had pumpkin tiramisu & cocolate flourless cake. Both were just... More

On the spur of the moment, we decided to go out last night to one of our local restaurants. Due to the heat, we were looking for a restaurant that also had air conditioning that worked well. No problem at Ecce Terra. So three of us had lovely meal. Fried Calamari was cooked perfectly. I had the special...Lobster Francese. Great... More
