Contemporary Italian
Located on the third floor of Eataly Boston, Terra is a unique restaurant inspired by earth and fire. The dining room centers around a wood-burning Italian grill, where Executive Chef Dan Bazzinotti cooks raw ingredients over burning flames, allowing the simple flavors to shine. In every earthy dish, the fire’s smoked warmth rekindles our fundamental connection to the elements. Plentiful and playful, the grilled plates are perfect to share around the restaurant"s rustic tables, especially when paired with seasonal drinks. Terra’s ever-changing beverage menu includes herb-infused cocktails, rare wine terroirs, and barrel-aged beers.

Food was mediocre and bland, other than the lamb which was very good, plates are extremely small, and price is extremely high. Was so loud we couldn’t hear the person next to us.

Delicious and rustic!

Outstanding service by management and staff.

Gavo - Excellent service and has a great memory for what my Fiancée and I enjoy.

We had Michael on Friday night and was great!

Finally, Luis Gonzalez - Has a old school touch to his ability to show the client that they’re important and that he and Terra appreciate our company and business. Reminds me of my NY and Miami hot spots where they show you much love when you’re a frequent flyer.

Will always come back for more!

Eaten here many times but unfortunately this time the food was poor. I had the beef main course but it had very little edible meat on it and it was overly salty.

had a quite disappointing dinner experience at Terre. Although asked specifically not to be seated near the kitchen, our table was next to the cooking area exposed to all the fumes and smells. The restaurant manager didn’t really try to resolve the issue and not checked on us after we were seated. The food was unimpressive and overpriced. Definetely I don’t recommend this place to dine.

The waitstaff was very accommodating and delightful. The food at Eataly is delicious, although Terra is a bit pricey. Terra is an attractive space. The overall noise level is not good. Too much music in the background and it was hard to hear ourselves talk at times. Overall a good, cheerful experience but don't expect intimacy.

The food was good and the service pretty good although our waiter/bartender was a bit distracted. One thing that really bothered me is that the chef refused to divide the main course for us onto two plates. We had ordered many things and I think that is just bad service and will make me think twice about going back

The decor at Terra is appealing (it feels as if you're in a spartan, urban greenhouse) but the food is incredibly overpriced and terribly disappointing. We would not return!

The food at terra was good but not exceptional for the hype and price. With some many one of a kind incredible Italian restaurants in Boston this franchise eatery does not measure up.

Underwhelming!

Farfalle main dish had probably twenty pieces of pasta with three or four pieces of lobster. Not much to eat and not particularly good. The plate was too big for such a small portion so it looked worse! Charge more and provide a main dish!
Cheese boards very good.

Unfortunately I cannot remember my server's name, but he was really great. When I ordered a bottle of wine he had a feeling I wouldn't like it as much as a different option so he recommended a switch, which I was happy with. He definitely pays attention. He was also patient with our big friend group and made sure everything came out on time. He was very attentive.
We had a big group for my friend's birthday and she loved the decor of the restaurant. It was good for photo taking and just having a nice time with friends.

We love the communal option of the crostini and spiedini starters. The server was knowledgeable about the menu and gave great recommendation about wine options, too. Thank you.

Go for bruschetta...

The pork was burned, the skin was black so it made the pork taste dry n charcoal. I would not recommend the food.

First impression is the somewhat shabby decor. No real style here, an assortment of uncomfortable chairs and not much to see beyond the flaming grill. Lobster and pasta dish was the best of our three entrees. Roast pig was dry and not inspired. Chicken under a brick was a generous serving but expensive for what it is. Warm salad was over dressed and soggy but taste was
Interesting. Shrimp skewer was extremely dry. Menu tries too hard to be continental at the expense of simple clarity. Very good wine selection but also pricey.

The food is exquisite and the wine list stellar. Our group had kale and squash salad, two pasta dishes and one fish, with the chocolate raspberry mousse dessert. Five stars. Waiters were both excellent, attentive but not intrusive. Can’t wait for next time.

Fabulous meal in every respect, from the beautifully made cocktails at the bar to the delicious food: octopus appetizer, pork chop, lamb, caponata (a wonderful surprise just added to the menu), and eggplant. It was so delicious that we splurged on some Barolo to accompany. Other than the noisy atmosphere which made it difficult to have a conversation, it was a lovely evening. Bravo Terra!
