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.

Really Good

The blue cheese and fig pizza is awesome. Great wine by the glass, good service. Not hard to see why they have been there forever.

A special touch to each dish. Sharing an appetizer and then a main course still gives me lunch for the next day. Amish chicken in the wood oven tasted just as good as it sounds. Fig and prosciutto appetizer was great. Also the grilled lamb chops. Drinks must be a big profit area as a vodka gimlet was $15 .

Yes, Terra is pricey. But the location is prime. The ingredients used are quality and very fresh. I enjoyed lunch here with friends and the bill for the four of us was about $140. My friends enjoyed pizzas and I really enjoyed the linguini with plentiful clams. The manager is professional, friendly and accommodating. I will definitely go back.

Terra is one of my favorite restaurants in Greenwich. The food and menu are really good, and the crowd is a sophisticated one, with the occasional celebrity. Great thin crust pizza and the caesar salad with shrimp is excellent. I especially love eating outside in the patio. My only complaint is that while dining inside, it's very difficult to hear...

Visited Terra last Friday for dinner. Tony, the manager on duty was very accommodating - we did not make a reservation and decided to eat out at the last minute. For the main course I ordered the Halibut, which was immaculate. Perfectly browned on one side to make it a truly exceptional dish. My wife had the pizza - simple... More

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
