Contemporary Italian
Located on the third floor of Eataly Boston, Terra is a unique restaurant inspired by earth and fire. The dining room centers around a wood-burning Italian grill, where the Terra culinary team cooks raw ingredients over burning flames, allowing the simple flavors to shine.

In every earthy dish, the fire’s smoked warmth rekindles our fundamental connection to the elements. Plentiful and playful, the grilled plates are perfect to share around the restaurant's rustic tables, especially when paired with seasonal drinks.

    I ordered the chicken with the escarole and it was super salty…chicken was tasty. Think it was the escarole that was over salted. Burrata appetizer was delicious. Terra dessert was also great

    My significant other and I dined at Terra this past Saturday evening. Overall, we were disappointed with the experience. Our waiter suggested that we place our whole order at once. As a result, all our food came out at the same time, before we even got our drinks. The taste of our food was good but both entrees came out cold. By the end of our meal, we agreed that we probably would not return to the restaurant in the future. Hope other customers have a better experience than we did.

    Our service was outstanding: friendly, helpful and efficient. The space is attractive but felt cramped. (Of course it Terra is very popular and was jam packed at Sunday brunch.). The food was fine; we selected brunch type items. My pasta was a bit too al dente.. edible but only a few seconds off from being chewy. Excellent steak tartare appetizer. The beet salad was a little lacking in flavor. Overall we enjoyed our experience and would go back.

    Arrived ear;y, greeted promptly and warmly, and seated at a god table. WE ordered smoked oysters to begin, and they were large and succulent. Also ordered Campanella with a meaty ragu, and tagliatelle with sausage and porcini mushrooms, Both were absolutely delicious (large, hearty portions). For desert, we shared an olive oil gelato, and found it tasty. Our server was pleasant, well-informed, and attentive. We'll return soon!

    Service was great, the restaurant was beautiful, and the food was expensive and terrible. The vegetables served with the burrata were dry/overcooked. The "fresh baked bread" was served cold to the touch (not even room temperature.) The panna cotta tasted more like a cheesecake than a custard and couldn't even finish half of it. The best dish was the lamb skewer prepared over the amazing open fire pit in the middle of the restaurant. So with 3/4 dishes prepared terribly, stay away from this restaurant.

    The food was pretty average all around, especially for the price point. Drinks and service were good and the general atmosphere of the place is fun! Just not the best value around when you have great Italian in the North End.

    We have dined at Terra multiple times over the years but this time, tried the Prix Fixe menu and enjoyed if immensely. Best deal in Boston. Food, from starter to dessert was amazing, carefully prepared and great flavors. As a person with allergies, I was also comforted by how on top fhe staff were about it. Not long after we sat down, the host came over to review the allergen list with me, went directly to our waiter to touch bases with him, and the waiter reviewed it again with me. As excellent as everything were, the best part of all was our waiter, Christian Gil-so AMAZING,helpful, on top of everything and all of his assigned tables, so hardworking and personable. In this day and age when it is so difficult to find great staff, I hope Terra management realizes what a jewel they have in him. All the runners and assistant wait staff were also super efficient and helpful. Great dining experience as usual but wanted to mention Christian specifically because he really stood out.

    Food and environment were good, service was stellar. We had friendly, engaged, considerate service from the moment we walked in, until the moment we were walking down the stairs to leave and a staff member ran an item over that we’d forgotten on our table. It’s rare to feel so well looked after these days. Nice job!

    The food was excellent. We had the Bistecca alla Fiorentina which was beyond sublime. The wine list is exceptional so we were able to have two extraordinary wines to accompany both our starters (lightly grilled and smokey oysters, cauliflower and brussels sprouts and lamb skewers and pork pockets) and the main steak. The service was excellent.
