Dined here on a couples night out. Place is not large, they have a few outdoor tables-if you like eating outside by the sidewalk with a view of the side of the building and street then go for it- Pizza is good, made in a wood burning oven. Good sized wine list, and not an over expansive menu. Food was... More

The restaurant has an outside eating area on quiet corner of classy Greenwich Avenue, and a barrel-vaulted ceiling interior with classical murals on each barrel. I had the angel hair lobster pasta in a tomatoey lobster 'broth' and it was very tasty. At $28 it did not seem too dear, given we were talking of lots of small lobster pieces.... More

My wife and I really enjoyed the outside sitting area along Greenwich Avenue, and we also appreciated the prompt and friendly service. The Parmesan Crusted Sole was outstanding. My wife's choice of the angel hair pasta and scallops dinner special was unfortunate - because it had zero flavor. At $26.00 for the pasta dish, it should have been tasty. My... More

Sam! (the best maître d' in the tri-state area) If you will let me be, I will try your carpaccio and thin crust pizza, You will see.

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.

I know there a lot of great restaurants in Greenwich however this one is one of the best! It's somewhat small so make sure you have a reservation. There is a wood burning stove for pizzas, Yet there are very exquisite entrées and appetizers and side dishes. The waitstaff was absolutely wonderful. I had the grilled octopus for appetizer, the...

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
