The tantalizing aroma of Northern Italian cuisine fills the air at this lively trattoria, situated in the heart of Greenwich, Connecticut, amid the upscale shops and boutiques of Greenwich Avenue. With vivid frescoes and the soft glow of sconces creating a warm environment inside, and a charming outdoor terrace inviting al fresco dining on warmer days, guests of Terra are treated to savory, wood-fired pizzas and fresh, handmade pastas—lauded as “excellent” by The New York Times.

We had a short wait for the window table. A score, since we didn't feel as cramped as we might otherwise. Many of the patrons were return visitors as evidenced by sitting at "their favorite table" or hugging the maitre d'. The calamari was delicious as an appetizer. The linguine and clams - good but had a strange butter taste.... More

If you're looking for a wonderful place to linger over european-style weekend lunches or a perfect go-to any night of the week, look no further. My sisters and I have had our weekend lunches here for over a decade and love it. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is warm and the recent promotion of Tony to manager is making... More

Every time I go to Terra, business or personal-my experience is amazing! the food is terrific, but Tony, the manager there is so accommodating, sincere and makes the entire experience so pleasurable. He is a star employee and makes each customer feel special. An experience not to be missed. This restaurant clearly values good employees and gracious hosts, all you... More

Our party of 3 chose Terra after some shopping on Greenwich Avenue, an upscale shopping district in Greenwich, Connecticut. We took the table in the picture window. The menu offered a well-rounded selection of dishes to suit all our tastes (one of us is a vegetarian). The initial impression is upscale; very clean, well laid out and tables not too... More

What a cozy restaurant on Greenwich Ave! We took advantage over the 1/2 price bottle Tuesday. Food was great, and service was awesome. I will return when it is warmer, so I can sit outside.

Our first visit and it was a good experience. Service was outstanding and our meals were excellent. It can be a little loud when crowded but not overwhelming. Worth a try.

If you have tried to find a good meal at a reasonable price in Greenwich, CT lately, you will appreciate Terra. Aside from being terribly hot inside, it was welcoming, with a large menu of traditional and inventive Italian dishes. They had about 8 pasta selections all in the $18-24 range. We tried a number of them. The shrimp and... More

Excellent service, never disappointing, and fun to eat outside when it is nice weather. This is a place where you will see locals as well as celebrities. I have only had great meals here.
