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.

Was a small restaurant with big prices. I was not over excited by the atmosphere nor size of place. Felt crowded with small amount of seating.Food was average.

Terra has been an icon in Greenwich at the same location for at least 28 years. Tried and true. Food you can depend on day after day

It's hard to find anywhere better in Greenwich! The service is friendly, warm and professional. The food is consistently great. I wish I could stay away from the bread and the delicious spread, but I can't. The carpaccio is among the best I've had, and every single pasta dish is delicious. The salads are consistently fresh, and the entree portions... More

We were visiting with friends who live in the area and eat here often. The food was amazing and a little pricey but well worth it.

A native loves this restaurant in the Avenue in Greenwich and I can see why. Not only did the staff call me Miss (and it has been many a year since I qualified), that nomenclature is indicative of the level of service - attentive, not intrusive and intuitive. Stacks up to perfect in my book. But here is the good... More

It has been a while since I have been to this restaurant "On the Ave" and now I can remember why I've stayed away. Although they have good food, their prices are slightly above what I feel comfortable paying. I just relived the sticker shock I've experienced in the past, and unless you have a good stream of income where... More
