Cozy atmosphere, great food, attentive service...I had the scallops, my husband had the lamb chops both were excellent. We started with the mussels in a tomato chorizo sauce which was also excellent. Everything was so delicious including our cocktails and bottle of Super Tuscan. So we splurged for a no occasion night out and it was a bit pricy but well worth it. Definitely need reservations.

WE met some friends for dinner Saturday night and had a very nice evening. We all had different menu items and everything was very well prepared, service was good and the food was great.

The only problem is the Cafe TC is rather small and the background noise is loud. There was one table who were especially enjoying themselves and after they left the noise level was better but still difficult to have conversations without speaking up. It is more enjoyable when the outdoor area is open. Still a great place.

Although we had great drinks and meals, it was uncharacteristicly loud in the restaurant this time. Cafe Terracotta is usually a relatively quiet restaurant, but last Saturday was so loud that we could barely hear each other. Otherwise, it was a great experience - food, drinks, and very attentive wait staff!

For a restaurant that should tilt toward the high end, there were a couple of food problems. Number 1: The risotto in the scallops and risotto is sticky rice. A mass of rice in a clump. To me risotto implies arboreo rice cooked for twenty minutes, after being browned in oil to make a rice pilaf, slowly adding liquid to bring the starch out of the rice to make its own sauce. Arboreo rice cooked like this will not clump together. My 88 year old mother kept complaining that the food was bad, the rice especially. Good thing we had ordered the crispy Brussels sprouts for an appetizer, which were excellent, so I could add them to her plate of “risotto.” Number 2: The fingerling potato slices in my duck confit were burnt and black. The duck was good but the leg/thigh was very small. Not much meat at all. I have been to Cafe Terra Cotta before and like it. This dinner was disappointing.

What a great restaurant for a special occasion or romantic night out!! In an updated historic house with 12 tables, some bar seating, and a few outdoor tables. Great entries developed by an exceptional chef. The bread, crab cakes appetizer, and short ribs dinner were superb. Even the house Cabernet was exceptional. What a find!!

Great restaurant in Downtown Littleton. Can't wait to try it in the summer when the patio is open.
