Good food and service

We have visited Terramia twice during the past month or so. Both times we were pleased with the food and service. The menu is 'smallish' with just one item in each category (chicken,veal,beef,fish) but they make up for it by offering daily specials of soup, raw bar, appetizer and enter'. The food... read more

We had a very nice evening at Terramia, food was great, service was excellent and location is perfect. We all chose the 4 courses 65$ fixed price menu and everything was great. The Filet Mignon was perfectly cooked just as asked and everything else was just as fine. We will come back!

Walked to the North End last night early enough, I thought, to get a table at one of the many Italian restaurants in the area. Wrong! But we noticed that Terramia had open tables and the menu on the outside looked interesting. In short, we had delicious food, served by very sweet gracious waiter, and before we finished our appetizers,... More

There were five of us and all the food we had was excellent! The veal, lamb shank, salmon....you cannot go wrong! The open-faced ravioli was delicious. The soup of the day - mushrooms with truffle oil - was very good! Everyone from ages 12 to 59 were very satisfied with their meal. And the tiramisu was one of the best... More

A group of us chose here because the wait at my favorite place was too long. I really wished I waited out in the cold for the other place. Terramia used to be a great restaurant. It was clear after eating there that the cooks just don't care anymore. I had the vongole which came out with a red sauce... More

This is a great Italian restaurant in Boston's North End that gives gluten free diners a chance to enjoy wonderful pasta. I had the Bolognese with penne. The sauce was rich and meaty and delicious and the pasta was perfectly cooked. My husband had the beef carpaccio which came heaped with the freshest baby arugula and a tasty duck breast... More

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
