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.

The service and food @ Tera were excellent -- from the appetizers to the main courses!! The sirloin steak was the most delicious steak I've had in a long time -- in the U.S. or overseas. Compliments to the chef.

Under seasoned food and steak was over cooked. Not a good experience for the price.

Disappointed. Previous reviews had talked about service issues and we had great service. Our food was another matter. The Gem salad had been dressed long before it was served to us and was limp and not fresh. The Breen fish had a strong fish taste and had many bones in it. We expected much better for a fairly expensive dinner.

the waitstaff was rude and kept bumping into our table. 3 of the 5 dishes were bad. The pasta dish had way too much butter even theough it was supposed to be pesto and the grilled chicken had no flavor at all. The prime rib appetizer was delivered rare even though it did not say rare on the menu.

VERY bad experience and we very seldom have bad experiences at Boston restaurants

Our experience at Terra was good. The room was filled and busy and terribly LOUD. As we were a group of ladies gathered together to catch up--it was not really the place to be. The menu items were unique and unexpected. The food was delicious. The waiter was boisterous and helpful. Perhaps I'd return for lunch.

Very nice atmosphere; pretty and garden-like, especially nice in winter. Food was unusual and delicious; staff agreed to make something plain for a picky eater in our group. No bread was ever delivered to our table, although we wanted it, and nearby tables all had it. Overall pleasant, although noise level was very high so harder to converse than in less busy settings.

Extremely loud because the music coming via loudspeakers doesn't add to the experience but rather ruins it.

The menu is interesting. The wine selection is very good. We opted on getting just the pork chop with a side of the appetizer of grilled mushrooms and the gnocchi. The gnocchi was outstanding, fresh and light, not greasy and just a hint of sage in the sauce the surprise of the hazelnuts put it at the top of the best gnocchi ever. The mushrooms were very interesting, very tasty but a little rubbery. The pork chop was delicious but almost half of it was fat. We had a hard time just trying to cuts parts of it to get to the meet. If we ever ate here again we would definitely try an assortment of the apps and sides for our meal.

I recently went to Terra on a date with my long time partner. It was much nicer than other restaurants we have tried at Eataly Boston. The atmosphere is wonderful and the food flavorful. We especially enjoyed the kale salad and dessert. We reserved ahead and were excited to have a romantic date.

Unfortunately, the service was not exceptional. Our waitress brought the wrong drink to our table. She insisted on serving a glass of wine to my boyfriend who has recently quit drinking, even though he refused it a couple times. When she finally realized that it was not what he ordered, she gave it to the table beside us. When she didn’t return with his drink or come to check on us, we asked various other wait staff for the non alcoholic drink he had actually ordered. We saw the staff speak with the waitress but the request was ignored. The waitress finally acknowledged her mistake and served him the drink about 60 minutes later, as he finished his main course. While eating, tables right beside us continued to get star treatment with visits and complimentary drinks and dishes from the chef.

So basically everyone around us was getting star treatment with visits from the chef and other employees, free food, and drinks while we weren’t even getting what we ordered. It was small mistake, but we left with the feeling that our three course meal had been a bit overpriced for what it was and the service that went with it. However, given the opportunity I would definitely give Terra a second chance.

We especially love the atmosphere at Terra. The charcuterie board is amazing. We're repeat customers, and will go back. Only recommendation would be that they add a couple more non seafood items to their delicious menu.

This was a fun experience. We had the 3 course truffle Chefs experience. Three courses paired with wine. Food was very good and wines selected complimentary to the courses. It is a bit loud, but overall ambiance is nice.

I asked our waiter if I ordered the Capesante al vino rosso to share, though I was not starving, would it be a good size for two? I was told yes. Well come to find out, 5 TINY scallops arrived with two teaspoons of barley. Clearly not a meal to split nor a meal itself, more like an hors d'oeuvre. Needles to say, we ate the table bread and went home hungry. Please let your wait staff know that that item is clearly not a dinner item.
