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

I've taken my very best friends and customers to Terramia and never been disappointed. The food is as good as any I've had in Italy or at Maria's house in Revere. Authentic, rustic and full of North end charm. That includes having a drink across the street while waiting for a table. Last time I was there I was disappointed... More

We were at the Boston Harbor with our daughter and two teenage grandkids. The appetizers were a good size and very delicious. The main courses were also very good and filling. It is a small corner restaurant, but quite nice and clean. The staff were very good. As in most larger cities and touristy areas, the meal was a bit... More

The restaurant is small so make a reservation. The service was great from start to finish, we waited for nothing at all. We had the rigatoni and pork shank, both were fantastic, seasoning was excellent. If you want a great meal, come here for a nice evening.

We went here during restaurant week. The service was great and the food was delicious. The portions were just right. Salem Street is so much nicer than the hustle and bustle of Hanover Street.

Visiting Boston for a wedding recently gave us an opportunity to spend some time with relatives who work in and are familiar with Boston proper. A visit to Terramia Restaurante was greatly enjoyed by all four couples. The atmosphere is very cozy along a very narrow street (check Google Earth) with seating of only 10 or so tables and the...

We had a diner at the terramia Ristorante in Boston a week ago. No much people but little care from the waitress. Food was poor. Then we decided just to give a very little tip. Yesterday looking on my bank account I realize they changed the tip on the credit card bill... They do bad job and they are thieves!

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
