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.

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.

the food is excellent, and the decor shows imagination. I had a salad, fresh, chopped. My friend had a good soup. The place is busy, and people vote with their feet, a good sign. A,ways worth the visit.

At 2:30PM on a Sunday afternoon in October in downtown Greenwich, we weren't expecting to find a packed restaurant. There are some tables outside but it was too cool out for that on the day we visited. So without a reservation, we were lucky to be seated. The waiter serving us, and all the staff, were friendly and professional, the... More

This place has a 'Cheers' feel. From the second visit the staff seems to remember you. They are warm, welcoming and attentive without being overbearing. Recently my son had a carpaccio craving, and Terra always delivers. Unfortunately the bean spread that is served with the bread is addicting. Last week my husband and I returned for some couple time and... More

We stopped by for a late lunch on a Saturday. The food was good but the noise made it impossible to enjoy it or hear anything my partner said. Agree with another review, won't be back.
