Terra Rossa Trattoria
With this new venture, we are going to delve further into the Italian culture. Starting with making fresh pastas from scratch, and our thin crust artisanal pizzas will bring in some classics. We’re bringing our Gelato machine with us and hope to set up our own little market to sell all our house made products, so our guests can enjoy them at home.
Our goal is to create outstanding Italian comfort food that is affordable for all to enjoy. With the expansion of our patio, we hope to create a fun space for everyone to hang out at as well.

Hi James, thank you so much for your amazing review, it is greatly appreciated. We're humbled. ~Mike
Amazing food - we ate SO much because it was all so great. Our server Melanie was awesome - really knowledgeable and kind, which made the experience even better. Thanks!
This is so great to hear! Thank you for your wonder comments and review, Yvonne. You made our day, and especially, Melanie's. ~Mike
It was our first date night out in a year (wonderful little girl at home, but she means fewer dates), and it was exactly what we were looking for!
Great service, excellent meals, beautiful presentation and the perfect grown up atmosphere we've been missing.
Wonderful flatbread Margherita. The bone narrow was great.
The deser ( torte) was scrumptious.
The service was friendly and attentive.
A very nice evening,
We ate at Terra Rossa for our wedding anniversary. We started with sharing the charcuterie; it was all delicious, but we wish there had been more spreads/jellies on the board in addition to the tasty mustard. My husband had the Arctic char and Brussels Sprouts; the only complaint was that the fish skin was not crispy at all. Everything else on the plate was delicious. I had the mushroom ragout and practically licked my plate clean! He had a beer and I had red wine by the glass. We were diehard Terre Rouge fans before the restaurant changed hands/concepts and very much miss their creative cocktails. Please consider bringing them back!
Great setting, good food. Very helpful staff. I love how they've changed the palce.
Excellent service, amazing food, wonderful selection of menu items. We come to PEI just for dinner at this place, it’s my favourite thing about this island.
Lovely atmosphere. The food was fresh and a nice menu with good wine list
Good variety of food selections, and really well prepared and very tasty. Prices reasonable and service was great, especially considering extra constraints at this time.
Terra Rossa is our favorite Charlottetown restaurant. Food and service always top notch. I wife has a couple of eating issues (GF & allergies) and they are always responsive to her needs and careful.
Hi there, appreciate that you asked for a review as we noticed before we went, that the reviews were not very favourable. I had the Arctic Char with vegetables and loved the vegetables along with the sauce reduction but found the fish very small, overcooked and definitely from frozen. My wife found her meal good as far as burgers go but noticed that the wine was expensive, definitely measured and there was no house wine at 5:30 on a Friday with a Liquor Store next door. I loved the focaccia bread with olive oil/balsamic vinegar and appreciated the gift of warm olives as it was an Anniversary Celebration. Our waiter was not familiar with all of the dishes and missed a part of the meal and gave us the wrong bill at the end. I wished we would have had the female waiter as she was very upbeat and helpful ate the end. Hope this helps.
We were disappointed by the new menu and atmosphere since the transition from Terre Rouge to Terra Rossa. Terre Rouge was always busy and lively, Terra Rossa was almost completely empty on a Saturday night - unheard of for Terre Rouge. My friend could not get a cocktail, and was disappointed by the mushroom toast. My pasta dish was tasty, and I enjoyed my meal, but we both preferred Terre Rouge.
W went early because there were no reservations till after eight after that. Restaurant was nit full when we left shortly after seven. Waiter did no seem very knowledgeable about the menu. First we ordered the focaccia with oil and vinegar, then we decided on the cheese plate but asked if we could get a bit of oil and vinegar. Sure they said. Well, both items came so we sent the order of focaccia back as there was focaccia on the cheese plate, which we knew. Oh my god they charged us $2.50 for three tablespoons of oil and vinegar.
My entire, risotto and scallops while delicious was appetizer sized, come on about 2/3 cup rice and three scallops for $22. There’s maximum $4 product in that plate. Hubby’s pasta was good but nothing notable. All in all a very over priced meal at over $100
Excellent unique food at incredible price. The pig butter was amazing
Went to Terra Rossa for lunch with a friend. We shared the Italian Melt and a scallop risotto - both were simply divine!!! The service was fast and friendly and the menu priced very reasonably, especially given the high quality of the food and ingredients. We will definitely be back!!!
Best restaurant in Atlantic Canada. I wish I lived closer.
Food was excellent, love to try new things! Wine list could be better, though. We’ll be back!
