A warm atmosphere, friendly staff, short but fine menu and delicious food. My husband shared an app of Jewish-style baby artichokes garnished with shaved black truffles. He had a double-cut pork chop on a bed of beans and spinach, and I had a risotto with baby artichokes, wild mushrooms, etc. His pork looked like half a pig and was done... More

Four of us had a wonderful meal at this restaurant on Sunday evening with a 5 o:clock Open Table reservation. The menu was a bit more eclectic than many others in the area, the wine list was extensive and well priced, and the food and service were terrific.

We had a really good meal here during a Boston dining promotion so very reasonably priced set menu. They also take reservations so no danger of hanging about waiting for a table. I am not a great lover of tomato sauce and pretty much every restaurant in this area seems to cook anything and everything in the stuff. Terramia offered... More

Food quality was good but a bit overpriced for what you get. Small restaurant which is very noisy inside. We had trouble communicating with the waiter and each other due to how loud this place was on the Saturday night we were there. Waiter added on a 20% gratuity and neglected to mention this. Fortunately we asked.

Went here for dinner on a Monday night, very tight dining but very cozy and it worked great. First off the hummus in oil with the bread was fantastic, and got us warmed up for the entrees. I ordered the open face ravioli seafood dish which came in a lobster marscapone sauce. One of the best sauces i have had.... More

I'm surprised I haven't written a review of this place yet. It's one of my favorite on the North End. I keep forgetting how quaint and friendly the service is. I brought a small group of 5 which is considered a large group to them. They participate in restaurant week and keep me posted on their special offerings through their... More

We had a lovely meal at Terramia. The best part was the special-of-the-day pasta, angelhair with truffles. I would order the dinner serving of that and have a capresse salad next time. The fish was good, but not exceptional, though the little tiny pasta (fregula?) wiith it was superior.The wine, Montalcino Rosso was perfect with the meal. The tiramisu was... More

Enjoyed a business dinner here last night with five other associates and was impressed with the classic italian fare. We enjoyed the antipasto appetizer as well as the fried lobster bites - both were fabulous. Enjoyed a Robolo wine with our dinner - most of us enjoyed the grilled veal chop and a couple in the group had the haddock.... More

Terramia was fabulous. The food and service was on point. My boyfriend and I ventured to Terramia for a Valentines dinner. We were seated immediately at a little corner window seat. Because it was Valentines we received glasses of bubbly upon arrival which was a great touch. Our waiter Gabriel was very attentive, helped up choose the best wine and... More

First of all, this is a VERY small establishment. I think there were only about nine tables, and it was tight. We made reservations, and while we waited we had cocktails across the street at Bacco where they have a full bar. The service and food at Terramia was so spectacular I almost wept with relief. (We'd had a bad... More
