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

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
