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 the Terra culinary team 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.

    With the exception of my main course, all of our selections from appetizer to dessert were outstanding and what we would expect from an establishment that claims authentic northern Italian cuisine. Terra indicates pasta made fresh daily. While that may be true (likely there is a main kitchen which provides fresh pasta to all of Eately), my ravioli left much to be desired. I suspect this pasta was made on site some time ago and kept refrigerated. It was served much too 'al dente'. When ravioli is made and cooked same day, it's incredibly supple and slippery. This was not. I ate about 3/4 because I was hungry. On the way out, I passed a server busing another ravioli plate only half full which apparently another diner found to be unsatisfactory. Regarding decor: The natural lighting is absolutely fabulous and perfect for live fauna. But Terra elected to use 90% plastic plantings. Strange. Put in the extra work and raise the bar from good to extraordinary. You'll need to increase the humidity in the room slightly for care. Your diners will notice with all their senses and appreciate it.

    The burrata was a great way to start, and the semifreddo a delicious way to end! Definitely recommend those two dishes, although everything here is delicious!

    My only concern is with the noise level. You basically have to shout at the person sitting across from you, so if you are thinking this might be idea for date night, perhaps find another location. I took my partner here and while we enjoyed the food and it's a very beautiful space, there's no denying that, the noise level was nearly that of a rock concert. Yes, some people like it a bit energetic, but I think it's good to point out that it will be noisy, and you will have to raise your voice.

    I took my mom to Terra for a special and emotional anniversary. I knew Terra had to be the place because of its location and beautiful ambiance. It was also recently rated one of the most beautiful restaurants in Boston! Everyone was so attentive, kind, and responsive to our questions. Our waiter, Santos, was OUTSTANDING! He spent unrushed time with us to help us figure out which of the dishes on the menu would be just right for our luncheon. He was so courteous and patient. The recommendations of ordering the mafaldine special and the chicken was spot on. My mom and I split the meals, and were so full, that we didn't even have room for dessert! We'll have to return for the tiramisu another time. I want to thank all the waitstaff, and especially Santos, for making our visit a very special one.

    Dined at Terra Boston over the weekend. Was extremely disappointed that we were sat in a tucked away corner of the main dining room as a party of 3 when there were multiple table openings in the main dining room that remained open through our time there. The ambiance is the main reason we chose to dine here and being sat tucked away in a corner by ourselves was extremely disappointing. Why seat people in a dark corner when the main space had plenty of openings? Food was subpar. Descriptions on menu are not fully representative of what you're ordering and our food came out lukewarm - was cold within one minute. Most likely wouldn't return for another experience.
