Great for lunch or dinner, this always busy spot is fun for the whole family. Serving everything from pizza to fresh fish, it offers a consistently good meal. We particularly enjoy the carpaccio and the oven roasted chicken. Not inexpensive and definitely not the best acoustics but you won't be disappointed.

Another delicious meal at Terra. My sea scallops with Black Truffles and Spinach in a light puff pastry was melt in your mouth delicious. My husband's branzino was just as good and the fish cooked perfectly. Service is exceptional and just another delightful dinner at Terra.

Great food and they now have a full bar. I would suggest starting with the best fried calamari I have ever had and then trying wood fire roasted salmon. You will not be disappointed.

We went he with friends for a Saturday night dinner that was delightful, if expensive. This restaurant is owned by the same group that own Nediterraneo down the block as well as Sole in New Canaan and Acqua in Westport--all quality Italian restaurants. You can eat a leisurely meal without being rushed, and there is something for everyone. I had... More

Just looking on the menu for something to split for 2 so we decided on the pizza - Gorgonzola dolce -apples, arugula, roasted hazelnuts and white truffle oil. WOW! Will be back but it will be difficult to try something new since this pizza was... More

Reserved based on number 1 rating and was not disappointed at all. The lobster antipasta and the butternut squash with carrots and potatoes was outstanding. Couple that with attentive, excellent service from our friendly waiter Pedro and we could not have been more pleased.
