“Good food and friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

We dined here with 4 people and were pleased with quality and taste of the food. The waiter explained everything and did his best. Up front they served 4 little bruschetta pieces which was nice. The food was good for this region of the world.
The restaurant interior was ok only the PC in the guest area of the restaurant was kind if misplaced.

So the overall impression was good due to the friendliness of the waiter and the good food .

“Good to find some excellent Italian food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

We had a group of 7 friends meet at Terra for dinner. We had made a reservation so we would be sure to have enough seating together. The restaurant is small and quaint. We were greeted by the staff immediately as we arrived. The menu is very diverse and many dishes were recommended by a friend that had suggested we meet there. We were, however disappointed in the wine selection. We tried both of the red selections offered and did not like either. We had to select from the white wine selection which many of us had wanted a red wine for the dishes we had chosen. The white wine was adequate, but not exceptional. But the food was WONDERFUL. Everyone enjoyed what they had ordered from the beef pasta dish, the seafood pasta, the gnocchi , and a wonderful dish with eggplant and farfalle. Sorry I do not know the menu well enough to list the names of everything. I would definitely return to Terra to try more of their dishes and would hope that they will improve their wine list. The staff was a bit slow on presenting our bills but overall service during dinner was good.

“Wow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2014

It isn't easy to find a restaurant here that has delicious food AND impeccable service... we found that place in Terra. The wife had the Alfredo with bacon, I had the Cannelloni della Nonna. Both were absolutely delicious, and the chef did not skimp on the cheese or spinach stuffing. Good portions, absolutely perfectly cooked, and Christian, the waiter, was very attentive. No other customers were there at the time, but I have a feeling he'll be efficient even during busy hours.

Bravo, and thanks to the Terra staff.

“Friendly Service, Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

My friend and I had dinner there. We started with a wonderful wine from Italy called "Barbera" which absolutely wonderful.

I had the steak which just melted in your mouth. Just so you know if you ask for "medium" it looks raw so ask for medium well done and it's perfect.
The owner, Mayerling, is absolutely lovely and gave us complimentary cheesecake type dessert which tasted amazing.
Overall, it you won't be disappointed. The food and service are excellent.

“Great Food, Great Service, Welcoming Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2014

I visited Terra, for the first time, with my husband and a friend The 3 of us ordered different pasta dishes: bowties with mushroom sauce; seafood pasta; pasta with beef. We were extremely happy with the food. We also were treated to complimentary eggplant rolls stuffed with ricotta cheese and bruschetta. Both appetizers were delicious. Two of us split a pitcher of delicious Sangria. Our hostess, Mayerling Hernandez could not have been friendlier. She helped complete a great experience. She also told us that the chef had been trained in Salerno, Italy. His expertise definitely shined through. We will return to Terra and I hardily recommend it.
