Description: The tantalizing aroma of Northern Italian cuisine fills the air at this lively trattoria, situated in the heart of Greenwich, Connecticut, amid the upscale shops and boutiques of Greenwich Avenue. With vivid frescoes and the soft glow of sconces creating a warm environment inside, and a charming outdoor terrace inviting al fresco dining on warmer days, guests of Terra are treated to savory, wood-fired pizzas and fresh, handmade pastas—lauded as “excellent” by The New York Times.

“Fantastic food, great crowd!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

One of the best restaurants in town! I have been taking clients to Terra for the past fifteen years and have never been disappointed. I highly recommend the Carpaccio or Calamari to start, and the Wood oven roasted Amish chicken, or Veal chop as the main course (been my "go-to" orders since I can remember). You can not go wrong with the pizzas either -cooked right in front of you in the brick oven. One of the best parts about Terra is I can impress clients with a great meal and fine wine, or take the family for delicious pizzas and pastas. The wife is a huge fan of the patio during the summer as well (one of only 2 or 3 on Greenwich Avenue). Beautiful decor, fantastic food, great scene.

“Great food, great atmosphere, great people!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

I have been going to Terra for quite a few years and the only trouble I have is figuring out what to order, its all delicious!! Whether you are heading in for lunch to grab a pizza, or coming in for dinner for a great piece of fish or a nice bowl of pasta everything is fresh and full of flavor!! I cannot wait until springtime when the patio opens back up. Don't forget about the extensive wine selection and knowledgeable staff!

“Terrible”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

Food is often undercooked and soup I had was definitely from a package not fresh made. Yuck!

Hi Teresa, I am sorry that you did not enjoy your soup. We do make our tomato soup fresh in house and generally it is a crowd pleaser. Perhaps it was a bad batch. I hope that you will allow us to serve it to you again and that it will meet your expectations.

“ok, I guess”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

Someone must really like this place, because they really pack the house for dinner. Didn't make much of an impression on me...just another average Italian joint.

“Good basic fare, noisy environment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

Great pizzas and salads for lunch. Always great tomato soup. Service professional, but cold. Too bad the place has no carpet or curtains making it extremely noisy. Two wonderful outdoor spaces in season.
