    Terra Sole is a great find just off the main road through Ridgefield, CT, especially for one traveling from New England to New York. The food is terrific with sumptuous daily specials in addition to the usual menu. The owner, a native of Puglia, Italy, welcomed us, offered menu explanations and wine recommendations, and kept a watchful eye on us throughout our meal. The Tiramisu is probably the best we’ve ever had and the generous cup of hot cappuccino is prepared beautifully. The service was attentive without being overbearing and the atmosphere, inside and outside on the terrace (with live music) is warm and inviting. We will definitely stop by again.

    FoodieVIP
    Dined on 7/27/2013
    Owner Pietro ensures the best quality ingredients and inventive pasta and fish dishes. Salads are made with herbs and veggies from nearby farms and the pasta dishes or either homemade, such as ravioli or imported directly from Italy/Puglia. Even if you're just stopping by pre-theater, try the charcuterie--wine or simply a plate of his homemade pasta--never butter or cream--really authentic--I'm a NY foodie--love this place!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 7/21/2013
    Separate room for the bar - very nice. Outside seating fairly casual. Indoors was more elegant although open to the outdoors, giving it a fresh and airy feeling. A very nice combination of traditional and contemporary. The menu had some different-than-usual options. We both had a DELICIOUS chopped salad of avocado, fava beans, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, grilled croutons and burrata cheese (no greens). Then we each had the Seafood Platter with branzino, salmon, scallops and shrimp (with baby veggies and potatoes). Very tasty. My only complaint was their red wine selections. I tasted three and didn't like any of them. Stingingly sharp. Perhaps they had been allowed to get warm. MUST make note of the service, which was absolutely perfect.

    This is a Ridgefield hotspot that does not deserve a return visit. Food was inconsistent at high end prices. Over friendly waiter pushed drinks but was essentially competent. No question that it is a popular spot but it does not deserve its reputation unless our Saturday night was an anomaly.

    Pietro's ingredients and inventive menu's are by far the best I've ever had in CT. He's ingredients are not common and the pasta's are either homemade or imported. He tries many variations, this is not going to be a penne alla vodka type of place--you will have calabrese fusilli with sliced zucchini in a chili/truffle light cognac sauce--no cream ever in any of his dishes, even the Spaghetti alla carbonara is creamless...the wines are top notch and if you can't choose, drink one of our Pietro's picks--always spectacular. The service, the attention, is like being a guest in someone's home. I always feel at home there--even if it's just having some wine and cheese. It's a must try. I'm confident you will return.

    Pietro, the owner has a very inventive, authentic menu with some of the best ingredients around--This is not your Baked Ziti kind of Italian Restaurantt, imagine what it's like to eat in Puglia or Rome and the amazing ingredients. All of the servers are knowledgeable on the ingredients and how dishes are prepared. The Charcuterie and cheeses are very well selected and presented. You feel like a guest in Pietro's home. My favorite time of year to eat there is when the garden is open and the weather is warmer--If you a pinot grigio drinker, try one of Pietro's picks--I guarantee you will have a wonderful dining experience.

    On a busy Saturday night, TerraSole managed to have our table ready when we arrived, have servers who were a bit slow to arrive but understandably so given the crowd, but most importantly have food that was beautifully presented and very good. The menu was creative and wide-ranging. The bill was a bit on the high side, but not surprising for Ridgefield. The portions were right on - not too much; not too little. We'll definitely go back.

The restaurant itself, is somewhat eclectic... the light fixtures as well as some artwork are made from recycled material, while the tables are covered in white linens with candle votives. This combination makes for a tastefully decorated, easy feeling vibe upon entering. Well worth a visit!

    We have eaten here many times. The food is always delicious and well-presented and we like some of the wait-staff very much. There is occasional music, and in the summer they open up the patio. Our only negative - and it did not apply to our last visit, as there were only a few patrons that night- when the place is more than half-full, the noise level increases exponentially and the dining experience suffers. But, it's our favorite restaurant in Ridgefield, ans we keep on coming back!
