it weren't for an extremely annoying server...Both our dinners were delicious. I had the cod and my companion had the veal chop. The constant interruption of our server asking if we would like to order drinks (he was pushy)....and then not getting the drink orders right and then disappearing led to us complaining and put a damper on dinner!!

This review is based solely on deception and not the Quality of Food! When arriving we were reading a menu that was quite extensive! My wife finally decided on a salad after we worked the entire 2 sides of Greenwich Ave. I was famished and looked forward to a pasta meal. This is where the deception comes into play. When... More

My son and I enjoyed a hearts of romaine salad and a prosciutto brick oven pizza. The service was very attentive. The atmosphere inside the restaurant was warm and the food was delicious. The price is a bit high for lunch ($40 for 2). There is a small patio to eat outside on a nice day.

Even though it's a trendy place, the food and service is hit or miss. Some of the choices are very good, some are very poor. The chicken, was dry. The service slow and poor. You'd expect more from an establishment like this.

Simply put, the food was excellent from antipasti to dessert and the customer service was on another level. The servers were attentive, but not overwhelming. And when my shirt was stained heading out the door to a wedding reception, Tony, the manager, offered the shirt off his back. I would recommend this restaurant ten times over, but I wouldn't want...

We came away with the memory of an average dinner with a menu copycated from the more flamboyant NY restaurants, which would not be a bad thing if it were served in other conditions. The exceptional side of the visit, alas, was its memory of crowded and most of all noisy ambiances and steep prices. Also lighting or absence thereof.... More

Was a small restaurant with big prices. I was not over excited by the atmosphere nor size of place. Felt crowded with small amount of seating.Food was average.

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.
