We were indoors but there is an outdoors area with heating out the back of the building. Food handmade and fresh quality ingredients from enthusiastic Italians. Massive wood fire oven and free delivery within 3 miles.

What is not too like. The staff are cheerful and welcoming and and the food to die for. I had the lasagne, again...., and my partner had the tuna tortellini, both were superb. We ate in the "garden area" which is lovely and warm due to the overhead heaters. (Inspired us to buy one for our garage gym actually !). We will be back..

Limited men and they tried to push the steaks as a special. Wine expensive for the homey atmosphere they try to foster. Ragu was dry but tasty. Dessert and wine excellent but we weren't allowed to look at the menu for dessert. Service poor. Waitress's grasp of English meant we got one dessert with two spoons - very hygienic in these times!!!- and had to wait a while for the other as if it had been our fault that we only got one. We were told by the owner/manageress to pay at the till and were distracted by the pleasing news that food was 50% off still. We did not see our bill until afer we had paid so did not see that there was service already include when we left a tip. The owner/manageress was as sharp as knife and made you feel that the place was all about making money rather than hoping to see you again

The food and atmosphere in the terrace area was fantastic. We had a little hiccup with a wine order. Only issue being that the wine ordered was not in stock. It would have been nice to be made aware of it but it really was only a small issue. The food and the rest of the evening made up for it.

We ordered 5 dishes of lamb ragù pasta and we got given 5 dishes of a basic tomato pasta which was nothing special at all.
The waiter asked us if it was ok for us to have that implying that it would have been a problem to ask the chef to make new dishes for us.
It was a disappointment as I wanted to experiment something new and I ended up having the most basic pasta dish you can expect.
They also said it would have been complimentary but it wasn't in the end and they charged us for that.
The atmosphere is nice but the customer service experience was quite poor.

Beetroot ravioli
Are Just some of the most scrumptious dishes on the menu.

The atmosphere in Terra Terra was great but I found the menu quite limiting and some of the meals were underwhelming i.e. tomato & rocket salad. Table next to us also sent their food back.

Great discovery. Such a charming staff and very fresh. This is not another pretentious Italian restaurant that charge you for supermarket pasta and an ultra salty sauce. All the opposite: tasty starters, great variety and well curated main menu and desserts. Additionally, the terrace is super nice.

We initially could only get a table inside and due to the lovely weather everyone was seated outside so we were the only ones inside, which did provide a nice ambiance. However, the staff were so lovely and managed to accommodate us outside, it made all the difference.

The food was absolutely delicious! Everything we had was mouth watering! Definitely recommend and can’t wait to go back!

This restaurant is bright, modern and lively. The food is really Italian and i know because I am Italian myself. Arancini were excellent and so were the bigoli with duck ragout. My wife had salmone crudo and pizzette, and she looked happy. My red Montepulciano was also very good.
The music was slightly too loud for us but not unbearable.
I recommend Terra Terra for a nice evening out.

Delicious food and friendly service. Authentic pasta and interesting toppings for their pizzette. Hopefully in time they will have more choices on their menu too. Also the best part is they have a free crèche for kids aged 2-6 years with really lovely staff.
