    The food was delicious and the staff was really friendly. They checked on us a few times to make sure all was good and kept us updated as there was a bit of a delay on our meal. I like the setting with the plants. Overall we had a lovely time and we will come back.

    The waiter was sooooo lovely. My daughter has a nut allergy and he was so fastidious and nothing was too much for him as he kept on going back and forth to the kitchen to check things for us. For his care and attention to detail I will definitely go back. Fantastic service. The chef is a delight as well.

    Excellent food, fresh and tasty, table service was fast and friendly without being intrusive the right balance. We booked table to meet up with old firends who were visiting from Australia. Only recommendation is that my partner arrived before me and she was kept waiting at the entrance while the manager was on his phone, and my friend noticed she ws waiting and invited her to the table we booked. Apart from that minor inconveninece the evening was an excellent experience.

    Pizza oven broken. Initially no fish of the day. Then said we could have sea bass. Two small pieces for £19. Wasn’t as good overall as the reviews suggested.

    I’ve walked past Terra Terra so many times, but had no idea there was such a lovely open space out back. Certainly didn’t feel like the busy Finchley Road was only yards away when I finally booked a table for my wife and I last night before a trip to the cinema at Swiss Cottage. An email from Timeout alerted me to the garden space and as it was such a balmy evening I thought why not?! The staff were super friendly, attentive, knowledgable and fun, but without ever being intrusive, and the menu is suitably small that it promised good things. The outdoor space is lovely and although it has a Mediterranean hotel vibe - you can smell the chlorine from the basement pool (the restaurant caters to the serviced apartments upstairs as well as being open to the public) as you’re escorted through the building to dine ‘al fresco’ - it didn’t detract too much from the overall ambience. The food was pretty much spot on, although the baby squid was probably a touch overdone, but I’m just being picky here. Our waiter, Alfredo, was the highlight of the evening - lovely guy and very smart on the menu and just doing what he needed to do in a very relaxed, yet seamless fashion, particularly as the covers started to grow. Would I come back? Yes I would!

    Really liked this restaurant. Excellent food and drink - except no non-alcoholic beers BUT I was told when leaving that they would look into it and plan to offer them. Wow. Great service and an uplifting place to "eat out" in the "garden".

    The restaurant was busy and food and service was good but took some time. What we didn’t know was their last orders for food was at 9pm and drinks at 9.30pm and closing at 10pm .. they should mention that in the booking . The outdoors seating is lovely .

    I’ve been here before and the service was excellent. Sadly, this time they seemed short staffed and unorganised. It took 30 mins before we were asked if we would like drinks or food. The food we had was great but one drink was forgotten. We asked a couple more times and when it still hadn’t arrived by the end of the meal, we asked to leave it. The waiter apologised and said he would give us coffees or limoncellos to make up for it. Half the group of 6 ordered coffees and we were charged for them all and no limoncellos. Service was automatically added on. Despite the above, the food was delicious, great chef, lots of options for all dietary requirements and a fantastic terrace area. I hope they improve the service as it’s a great restaurant and I would like to return.

    For a london restaurant it is ok. Food is fine, service could be better but I think the staff were very new, it took a while for drinks to come. It’s perfectly ok but it’s not somewhere we would go back to.

    The outdoor terrace is lovely and totally unexpected in the busy Finchley Rd area. The food was good, service ok (though at one point they got completely overwhelmed and it took for ever / had to ask a few times for our drinks to finally arrive). However, it was very expensive for what it was! We paid 90£ for 1 main course, 2 starters and 2 kids menus + 2 glasses of prosecco. Overall nice experience but it is very overpriced for the kind of restaurant it is.

    Pizza wasn’t nice. Wasn’t an even base so everything fell off it Arabiatta was nice but tasted like the sauce was just reheated and not fresh Make sure you press OUTDOOR for the better seating on the terrace as it isn’t clear the terrace is the outdoor seating

    We'd chosen this restaurant because of a 2-for-1 deal they were offering, but because we were seated outside, the offer wasn't applicable - so take note of that. I spoke to the manager that this was misleading, and he kindly deducted one pizza from the bill. The outdoor venue is lovely on the sunny days.
