The food was delicious and there was a nice atmosphere in the restaurant. The restaurant was accommodating when I asked to add an extra person, which I really appreciated. During dinner, however, dishes were cleared while people were still eating, even if it meant leaning over people to do that.

I have been to Terra Rossa a few times now and it is always very good. Food is very tasty and a good selection choice for everybody to choose from. Wines were good as well. Welcome and service both excellent. There were 6 of us and all the food came out in one go, everybody was full by the time we left. Will be going back.....!

Amazing as always. So happy that they've reopened! the food is authentic Puglian and the service is perfect too. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but they always make me an amazing tomato and onion salad. Their tomatoes are always ripe and sweet...be it January or July. Their polpete are to die for too.

A friendly, unpretentious place with excellent Italian food made with authentic ingredients and care for the details. Our group all knew Puglia well and the food was true to the area. The octopus carpaccio was outstanding, puree of broad bean puree with cicoria delicious and the pastas all had home made sauces. Semifreddo al pistacchio for dessert was the perfect way to end the meal. The wine list has an excellent range of wines including some that are great value.

Food was average. Tables were not clean. Selling a chocolate soufflé that was actually a chocolate sponge cake.
Pumpkin and mushroom risotto was out of season. Prices are not the same on their website and when you come to the restaurant.
They rushed us to leave as other customers were waiting in the rain.

With all the nice restaurants on upper street I won’t go back!

A good size pizza and decent for two people to share, and tasted fine. Mixed side salad is overpriced at £5.95 for leaves, five slices of cucumber and a few cherry tomatoes. Service was fine overall apart from we were place right by the opening and waiters were constantly pushing my chair for the first 20 mins. I raised this and we asked for the table behind to be moved but he said he couldn’t do anything despite me saying that it wasn’t a pleasant dining experience. Eventually they moved the table behind but no idea why they couldn’t do it the first time we asked. This restaurant was fine if you’re dripping by for a pizza but I would t go out of my way to reserve a table there again.

It was ok in general. The service...a little bit annoying tbh, they remind you over and over you have 1.5 h to enjoy your dinner ...kind of rushing you

Terra Rossa Italian Restaurant
Responded on May 20, 2021

Dear Margs, we wrote on the reservation confirmation and on our menu that in these exceptional circumstances we will be more strict with time slots, during the outdoor only government restrictions. We didn't enjoy reminding customers but it was necessary for many reasons. We never done that in normal circumstances and, from monday the 17th, we went back to our relaxed time slots. Sorry it bothered you. I hope you will come back and see our normal service.

Lovely food although the menu has changed a lot since I last came. With less options. We were told we only had the table for 1.5hrs which was enough time to eat however I did feel that we were being rushed slightly. Over all good food at a decent price. Waiter was very friendly.

Hi Sariah, I'm really sorry if you felt rushed. Thank God we will open indoor from next week and we can go back to our normal relaxed service. We has so many bookings in this 5 weeks with restrictions that we were forced to be more strict with time slots. We never done indoor, but still I'm sorry you didn't enjoy it as usual. Regarding the options on the menu, we have more option than ever since we opened. next time you come you have a complimentary drink for the rushed experience. Francois

Beautiful food, lovely staff and great atmosphere. Sat outdoors and loved it - there was a heater which kept us warm, and although it was right on the street it wasn't too noisy - to be honest we barely noticed that it was on the high street! Burrata was incredible - definitely recommend!

Overall very good restaurant! Excellent service, and amazing food. Some dishes are hit and miss but most are very good and authentic. Pizzas are excellent (bar perhaps the 4 Formaggi) and we also had the Pappardelle & Cinghiale which was divine. Desserts are good too but they seem to be much better with their starters and mains. Good wine selection and great cocktails at reasonable prices. Would recommend and will be visiting again!

Really pleasant experience. Attentive staff, quick service and most importantly the food was excellent. Had croquettes, boar Ragu and goats cheese pizza. Only slight improvement would be a tomato based dip with the croquettes but it was all delicious. We sat outside due to current covid rules so can't comment on the inside ambience.
