Terra at Eataly Boston

$31 to $50
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 Chef Samantha Kundrat 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 was terrible initially but we wound up with a great waiter. The food is ok - not mind-blowing. For the price charged, it wasn't really that good. I don't mind paying for good meals but this really wasn't worth it.

Reservations were easy to make and the service was great. The burrata is amazing w the seasoned pumpkin seeds a squash purée. We also had the racy parpedelle and the pumpkin ravioli. Perfect to share.

Service was mixed. While busy, it took more than 30 minutes after finishing the first course to receive entree. Sat at the counter, so we could see what was going out.

Made a reservation at Terra to celebrate our wedding anniversary as we always eat Italian on our happy day. There was a less than 5 minute wait on a busy Friday night for our table. The hostess was pleasant. Our server greeted us and was attentive without rushing or being overbearing. He found the bottle of Aglianico we wanted and it was fantastic. The Gran Taglieri board was phenomenal with the pork pate with mustard being a standout. The rabbit filled pasta and the beef and pork ragu were delicious. We shared 3 scoops of gelato for desert. Other than the noise factor, it was a good experience overall.

Went for our anniversary dinner- drinks and food was great, we got the Swordfish & the Duck Ragu. Perfect size portion but definitely expensive. Ambience in the enclosed rooftop space was really nice but our table was tiny, felt like I had no room. Service was good, they gave us a complimentary gelato for our anniversary- an unexpected treat, really appreciated the gesture! Overall a really nice experience!

Very overpriced for the quality and portion sizes. The atmosphere was cool and trendy and decor cute. However if you want to eat great Italian food, this isn't the place.

The food was delicious as always and our server was nice, but it took her forever to come to our table to take drink orders and was hardly available to us. What was frustrating was I saw her tend to other tables pretty regularly. Trying to keep things into perspective giving the times we are in and she wasn’t rude at all.

good for business lunches where the ambience and prestige is more important than food value or food quality. the food is also good just a bit expensive if not using a company card.

This is our second time dining here, the first time was the summer menu - food was incredible and our server was fantastic. We decided to bring our friends who had just ran the marathon to celebrate and although we knew the menu had changed we thought it would still be incredible. We were wrong - we got the truffle mushroom toast to start… not even a hint of truffle. We got the waygu steak skewers and they were over cooked. The truffle pasta literally tasted like butter…. $36 for butter noodles!! The only dish that was good was the octopus skewer. Very disappointed. Our server never asked how our food was and was not very friendly. Such a shame for such a beautiful atmosphere.

We ordered pasta and a prok chop. The pork was very good, but the pasta was disappointing, extremely salty. That was definitely a let down, considering we really love Eataly.

Tara was so outstanding we ate there twice on our Boston visit. If you sit at the counter, the entertainment of watching the wood fired grill and the folks working it is very fun. The food is AMAZING! The service is AMAZING! Be sure to have the burrata-- best presentation of an Italian standard I've had in a long time. Everything was a 12 on the one to ten scale. If we lived in Boston, we'd be there once a week!

Service was on and off (drink refills ignored some times while other times super attentive), food was okay for the most part, though I did get sick afterwards from my dish. I had the swordfish while everyone else had the chicken. I will say the desserts brought out for my birthday were delicious. Overall though, I’d rather go elsewhere. So much potential.

Our appetizer was undercooked, the presentation of the meal was awful - a tough pork chop alone on a large plate with a sticky ball of pasta in a separate large bowl. No garnishments. Wine was way overpriced.

The food is excellent. Service can be a bit off in that it goes too fast; bringing entrees before people are done with apps and plates have been cleared. The system seems a bit uncoordinated and they could expedite better and pay more attention to what’s actually happening at the table. All of the food I’ve tried here has been top notch, high quality, great flavors.

I’m so glad I chose Terra for lunch! Gorgeous setting and wonderful ambiance. I loved the light and the plants everywhere.

As for the food- delightful. Get the rabbit agnolotti and you won’t regret it. The oysters are also excellent, and my server’s wine recommendation paired perfectly. I’ll be back on another visit to Boston!

Our server barely interacted with us. He took our order, then we never saw him again until he brought the bill. Furthermore, though it was nice that the appetizers came out quickly, we had barely taken a bite of them before the main meal came out approximately 60 seconds later. The server never checked in to see how our meal was. Then, when I finished before my wife, someone came and cleared my entire setting before my wife was finished, making my wife feel reeled rushed, as if they wanted us to get out of there as soon as possible. She never even got a chance to finish her beverage, because we felt so rushed. This was the worst birthday lunch we have ever experienced. We will never go back.

A lovey ambience with your reliable hospitable eataly staff. We ordered two different pasta dishes and weren’t entirely impressed with the flavors. They do have a lovey selection of wines though!

If you want more affordable eats (and better flavors) try the restaurant on the main floor—la pizza la pasta!

A well-served meal whose food did not live up to expectations. Highlights were the craft cocktails, pork chop, beet salad, and grilled octopus. But the cavatelli were lackluster, and the $55 steak was full of gristle. I left more than half of it on the plate. We ordered a lot of food, antipasto platter, three small plates (which were all ample), split a pasta, had the entrees, and dessert, but left feeling unsatisfied. Ronnie, our server, was terrific, but I wonder what the kitchen thought when plate after plate came back unfinished. At over $500 for two with wine and tip, the meal was particularly disappointing.

Came here with a group of 5 and although our table wasn’t ready until a little later than our reservation, the food was delicious. The special tonight (ribs braised with Campari) were tasty, rigatoni was fantastic as well. Don’t waste your time on the bruschetta with bursts, our group was not impressed. If you like white wines, I highly recommend the Gavi. Pro tip, you can buy the bolognese ragu in the shop downstairs. Highly recommend.
