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 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. These draft beers — resting in Italian oak in the nearby Barrel Room — boast evolving flavors at each stage in the aging process, offering a once-in-a-lifetime tasting experience with each pour.

Food was good and some interesting/different items on the menu (pigs head, tongue, etc) if want to be more adventurous, in addition to some of the more traditional. Portion sizes were small and the noise level was high and it wasn't even a peak wknd or Friday. The waiter couldn't even hear our dessert order. I'm probably being nit picky but it was disappointing to see the dust/dirt build-up on the glass light fixtures.

Great place if you love meat. Could use a little more veggie dish. Service was not so great. Two of our 6 orders did not go through. Not great sound absorption. Had to speak pretty loud across the table between the two of us.

My third visit to Terra and once again it was a spectacular experience. The service is fast without feeling rushed and appropriately attentive. The gran tagliere appetizer wasamazing with a fabulous assortment of mouth-watering selections. Although we were disappointed that the steak Florentine was not available, the tomahawk steak they offered in its place was outrageously good. Great options for dessert and drinks including a number of excellent wines available by the glass. This place is a gem!!

The food and service were both very good, but the prices didn't match the portions. Either the price needs to go down (even moderately) or the portions need to be larger or generally more impressive.
In general, I was more impressed with Eataly's pizza restaurant than this restaurant.

The nature of this second visit to Terra was identical to that of the first (in 2017): the staff with whom I interacted over the phone and at the entry to Terra are welcoming and otherwise professional; the food is good, well sourced, etc.; and the venue contributes stylishly to Boston's new edginess. The shortcomings that prevent me from returning a third time are primarily the service (confused, inattentive, hawking the most expensive items on the menu...); the drinks were "thin;" and the kitchen would not permit substitutes (eg potatoes instead of farro). 'Tis disappointing that during both visits the diners, some of whom had worked in restaurants, felt taken for granted and, given Eataly's reputation, were thereby surprised.

Fun atmosphere, especially when paired with the experience of the market downstairs. The food though, was very mediocre. Not bad, just nothing you can't get at a handful of other Italian restaurants in the area and MUCH more expensive.

Cheese plate unimaginative. Food in general low key. Server was distracted. Forgot
bread, forgot side we ordered. Side was a chickpea cake of sorts that was very bland. Cafe Americano was watery. Will not return to Terra.
We returned next day and had a wonderful pizza in the Eataly Market.
Expected more from this venue. We have dined all over the world. Local chefs rule in Boston.

The ambiance is a lot of fun! Servers were attentive and the menu was explained. Food was very good, but the pasta dinners are expensive for what they are. Would recommend coming for wine and appetizers

Came here for a special occasion and got the sampler ($75). Wasn’t worth the money at all - wasn’t given great meal options and wasn’t worth the price.

Not my first time at Terra and it certainly won't be my last. The food was deliciously creative and I love the atmosphere of greenery with copper accents. They also did a great job with a little birthday dessert surprise I tried to plan. 10/10 cheers!

Noise is so loud it is hard to have a conversation let alone a romantic one. Menu is bizarre. There was no lettuce on the menu and vegetarian options were sparse. Our family is half from Italy. This was terrible.

Love the open kitchen. We sat at the bar and got to see all the grilling and food preparation. Everything we ordered was outstanding...apps, sides, entrees, dessert....all spectacular! This has become our new favorite restaurant in Boston.

Overall - we had a wonderful time. Food, cocktails and the wine - all very good. Server was very nice and took time to explain. Enticed us into getting a bottle of a digestif which she served as a complementary end to the meal . And to our surprise, a very nice photographer talked us into taking our /food pics as we were having our dinner!!! Overall a wonderful experience - plan to be back!!!

The space is open and airy. It can be crowded, but it doesn't feel that way because of the high glass ceiling and all the natural light. The night we were there--a Saturday--the service was friendly and efficient. The menu offers a nice variety with some things you don't often see like a delicious whole roasted orata, chicken cooked under a brick, a creative and seasonal variety of pasta and panelle. We were four and sampled off these and they were uniformly perfectly cooked and seasoned. The restaurant exceeded my expectations.

Very disappointed - made a reservation for 5:30pm and requested the counter when we made the reservation. We were told when we arrived there would be an hour to an hour and a half wait for the counter. Dinner was ok but not great. We have been here twice before and it was great. Won't hurry back!

Food was delicious however the service was horrid. We called to let the hostess know we were stuck in traffic and would be about 10 min late for our 5:15 reservation due to heavy traffic on the Mass Pike. We were promptly informed that if we were later than 15 min that our reservation would be given away. I could understand if we had a prime reservation time on a fri or sat nite but this was 5:15 on a thurs. When we were seated at our table (at about 5:30) there were 4 open tables around us..no need to threaten us with giving away our table! The 3 of us proceeded to order over $300 worth of apps, wine, entrees. We had no less than 5 different people come over to our table and ask us if we were ready to order dessert! Again there were at least 2-3 open tables around us. I then asked our waiter if there was a need for us to vacate the table as so many different people have come to ask if we were ready to order dessert. Again the food was delicious however the hostess and the wait staff need a lesson in customer service.

It was two completely different sides of the coin when I ate at Terra a couple days ago. The hostesses (3 of them) had a forced friendly greeting for me and the guests I was with, but when we sat down, the two servers we had were extremely friendly and they hustled during our entire stay. The menu offered a ravioli, but we were told it was not available upon ordering it. Ambiance is fantastic at any time of the day and the food was solid.

Prices are slightly high for such a small portion(which is not a bad thing) but could be 5% cheaper!
Everything else was perfect though.... good service and incredible atmosphere!

We really enjoyed eating here. The food was excellent, the entire staff was wonderful, welcoming and genuine. It’s such a unexpected yet wonderful surprise because the hustle and bustle of Eataly disappears once you reach the top of the stairs and you’re in this amazingly tranquil, plant and light filled space. It’s absolutely worth it.

Wood fire Argentinian style grill. The octopus, whole fish and plate of grilled meats were fantastic. The rolled eggplant and chickpea fritter for sides were okay. Not up to par with the main courses and appetizers. I can't wait to go back with more people so I can try more stuff.
