Welcome To CIVILIZATION!
Come in, relax, and enjoy!
We are located in the historic Gulf Oil Building on NW 2nd Street. Join us for dinner and you will find Gainesville’s best kept dining secret since 2009.
Discover for yourself why we love exploring the world through food.
Home to World Wide Wednesdays, we offer specials from a different country every week. We serve food from five continents and offer craft beer suggestions for every dinner entree.
We support local farmers, serving vegetarian and vegan dishes, florida beef and seafood, and house-made desserts.
We are a dine-in restaurant and do not do take out, or to go orders. However we offer platters for your special event through Terranova To Go.
