Restaurant was slightly warmer than I would have expected. Wine too should have been chillier but not sure because of carafe sitting to long as it took a while for wine to be served. Presentation of food very inviting. Servers attentive. Food very good.

We went on a Monday night for Burger night. Burgers were delicious and meat was high quality. Nice selection Of burger variations. Only thing that could use improving was the bun. Don’t get me wrong, it was a very delicious, light brioche type, however, it did not hold up throughout the meal. Became slightly soggy and fell apart after several bites into it. We also sat at the bar before our reservation and enjoyed appetizers from the happy hour menu. It is slightly limited but selection are all fine quality and a great value for the quality you’re of food your getting. For $8 bucks, we got a fabulous meat and cheese platter complete with olives, a peach spread and bread. Selected wines for five dollars a glass that are exceptional also. I would highly recommend Eno Terra for both a nice happy hour and especially for fine dining.

As always a wonderful experience. The weather cooperated and we were able to enjoy dinner on the patio - much quieter than inside. Food was excellent and the recommended Sicilian wine was perfect. Thank you!

My guest for lunch was a friend from New York, who is familiar with higher-end restaurants, and she loved Eno Terra. We were celebrating her birthday and, as I requested, we were given an especially nice table. We both enjoyed the corn chowder in coconut broth, and each liked our entree salads. The fruit crumble that my friend ordered for dessert was excellent. I was less pleased with the canolis and wished I had ordered something else. The service was professional and attentive. There were two disappointments. For a restaurant that prides itself on its wine, we were surprised that there was no Champagne by the glass, only Prosecco (which neither of us likes) and the half bottles of Champagne (other than rose) were sold out. We did, however, enjoy a delicious French Chablis, and I appreciated the possibility of buyingwine by the carafe as well as the bottle. We were brought lukewarm coffee and had to ask that it be changed. The server willingly brought us fresh cups. As for the bill -- it was steep -- but I was aware of that possibility in advance.

Eno Terra is one of my favorite restaurants. So when an Italian researcher visited Princeton again I took him to Eno Terra for the second time. The quiet dining area made it easy to hear each other -- especially important since he is not fluent in English. The pasta dishes we had were excellent, as usual. The portions were rather small, though. And the glasses of wine were relatively short pours for $14 or $15 a glass.

The menu was a bit limited for my taste with the only option being eggplant parmigiana- it was incredible! Salads, desserts, all outstanding. Great waiter who was very knowledgeable with the substantial wine list. Nice casual atmosphere. Highly recommend.

It was date night for us. The highlight of the evening was the food. It was all outstanding. We have been there before a few times and find that the food is special. Example dishes that stick out include Seared scallops (wife loved it), grilled octopus, stuffed tempura zucchini blossoms...

Service was, well, average overall. Our waiter almost forgot to share the specials for the evening. He also didn’t check on us until after we were done with each course. It really seemed like he was new at this or just paying attention to the larger tables. The bus staff was good though, very attentive (except the one that dropped off dessert and didn’t acknowledge us or say anything- looked like she didn’t want to be there).

The worst part was that it was ridiculously warm in there. Seriously? Maybe it was just the corner where we were seated.

Food was delicious. In the end, it was a mixed experience. We expect more for the price. There are plenty of choices in the area and they can stand to polish up their game.

The bet salad and scallops were very good. The only change might be to increase the menu options and change the bread to a better selection. All the food is nicely prepared and the service was very good. It’s a great local choice !

I have been to this location several times, but the kitchen seemed to be extremely overwhelmed this time around. There was a party on the second floor of the venue, and it was apparent that the restaurant was short-staffed, stressed, and unable to keep up with the quantity of customers.

The food was alright, but not worth the price. We were brought three mistaken entrees before we received our main course, and the restaurant took about 45 minutes in between our appetizer and the entrée.

In the end, we decided to eat the birthday dessert elsewhere since we didn’t want to risk the wait. No apologies were given and the restaurant paid no mind to the fact that we were celebrating a birthday, even though I had made a note in our reservation and had reminded the staff upon arrival.

You’d be better off going elsewhere for a nice meal.

Went to Eno Terra for my birthday lunch with my fiance. The food was delicious, we started with the salumi platter which we both loved. We both order pasta dishes, Bucatini for myself and Tagliatelle for my fiance. Both were well cooked and had a lot of flavor. The desserts were tasty but definitely not their forte. We probably wouldn't have even ordered them if it wasn't a birthday lunch. The atmosphere is great as well, really comfortable with a modern upscale feel. Not white table cloth but you still feel like you can have a special occasion there. We will definitely be back

This was my third time at Eno Terra, but first time visiting for a non-work related event so it felt like the first time. I was blown away by how great everything tasted, down to the arugula that came with my perfectly seared steak. Everyone in my party was beyond satisfied with their meals and we will definitely be adding this to our special occasion restaurant list!

It was just As good as it always is which is why we keep going back! However… This time… I was quite surprised when the valet brought our car keys in, and two other tables, put them on the table and said have a good night. We Had just ordered dessert, same with the the table next to us, so as you can imagine we then felt rushed. We did have a very late reservation 9:00 PM but it was only 1020?? That has never happened in any restaurant I’ve ever been. But… We will still be back! Hopefully we can get an earlier reservation!

Expectations may have been inflated because of a recent trip to Italy. Cacio e Pepe and cannoli were disappointing, tagliatelle dish did not look all that great. Appetizers were acceptable but also rater mediocre. Prices were exorbitant for the quality of the food we received. on a positive note the parking was good, the ambiance was nice and the service was better than average. Get some Italian cooks and this could be a terrific place.
