Good food and quaint spot

Food was fantastic from the fish to the pasta to the steak. Staff was very accommodating and worked with my celiac food issues. They offer homemade gluten free pasta. Place is small which was perfect for an intimate conversation and celebration. I would head back here when in town. We had fun and... read more

Ravioli stuffed with fig, walnut, and marscapone served with two veal medallions in a sage cream sauce. A little ground black pepper on top. Yup... It was really good. This was an off menu special. The menu items looked VERY enticing, too. Short by-the-glass wine list was adequate. The range of full bottles was ok, too. Methinks the food is... More

Looking for a nice romantic nite out with your love one. Then go to Terramia. The place is lovely dark and private. The service was excellent and the food out of this world.

Six of us walked into the Italian area and just started to read the menus posted outside restaurants. We like the look of it, asked how long before a table, 20 minutes, so we waited and thank goodness we did. We started with fried artichokes, really good.The mussels dish was excellent. I had pork Osso Buco over polenta, to die... More

I travel to Italy three to four times a year and understand very good food. This restaurant is as authentic as any Italian restaurant I have ever eaten in. The flavors are rich and the textures are perfect together. We started with the Mista salad which was a great choice as it was light yet flavorful. I had the spaghetti... More

Visited Terramia this past New Year's Eve for dinner for 6. Although we had to wait past our reservation time, it was clear why the wait; dining is never rushed, and most patrons love to linger because they just feel that comfortable! The food is the most delicious! My husband ordered a seafood dinner that was not on the menu,... More

We haven't skipped a dinner at Terramia in the past 3 Boston trips. The food is absolutely incredible. The staff is wonderful. Definitely make a reservation and show up on time! Terramia is our classic go-to spot for every visit!

We had the same experience as the previous reviewer with the wait. Normally this isn't a huge issue, but the restaurant is very small and there is no where to wait without hovering over someone's table. We had a few drinks from a bar across the street and were seated 45 minutes after our reservation. They claimed it was due... More

We had 7:00 p.m. dinner reservations (which they called to confirm that we would be on time the day before). We were a few minutes early, whereupon we were told our table would be ready in a moment, they just presented the bill to the previous customers. At 7:15, we again asked how much longer and were told the same... More
