My family booked out the restaurant for a family lunch mid-week. The occasion was a set menu lunch after a funeral Mass. The Mass ended and although the restaurant was not yet ready, they allowed us in so that we did not have to wait in outside in the heat. The waiters came around immediately once everyone was seated with... More

Great food. Their "Flash Fired Calamari" not only sounds great but is equisitely fresh and tender. Does not taste like frozen calamari. Tender and juicy with a great crunch from the flash frying. Sorry if I am going on about the calamari but they are a "Must have" if you go there. Capellini lobster tasty but a little bland and... More

There continues to be a buzz here even on a Monday night but it fell short for us. The pasta special described as "creamy" was almost total dry. They did bring a small pitcher of red sauce when we complained. The soup and the pasta both needed salt. The Bolognese was fine but for $24 I had higher hopes. The... More

We went for dinner with friends and kids on a Saturday evening. We had a great time. The kids loved the pizza and all of us found delicious main courses. Our kids (6-10 age range) were fine but they are not set up to accommodate kids. No crayons etc. luckily we had brought some pens and paper.

Another visit to Terra with local friends. The Maitre D was very welcoming despite the larger size of our group and the food was delicious. Gluten free pasta is not a problem here. Just ask which is so refreshing. The regular pasta was excellent and the special with shrimps and prosciutto was out of this world.

amazing. this mainstay has been around for over 20 years and still is great. We always love the food. I had a veal milanese last time . Excellent. Special treat that on Tuesdays wine under 100 $ is half price- basically at cost. Chicken is excellent - my wife always gets that. Service is always great.

I love going to Terra and sitting at the bar to eat, especially in the winter! They have an oven behind the bar for pizza and other dishes so it is always toasty!
