This has become my favorite restaurant in town. It’s the perfect spot that I frequent for family celebrations, business lunches and date night. The atmosphere is simply gorgeous with a distinct European feel and the food is always impeccable. The best part though is the exceptional service that is always personal and kind. This is a unique gem of a restaurant that I highly recommend!

Always a pleasure to dine out at Tera Sole. Pietro and his staff are welcoming and attentive. The specials are always a hit and you can't go wrong with a bottle of Primitivo!

This was our first and likely last visit to TerraSole. It all started downhill with a drippy hostess who couldn't handle a table change request without the owner stepping in. They wouldn't move us from a 2 top right near the kitchen because they were "too busy" meanwhile 3 tables sat empty in the room for our whole dinner and as we are finishing they seat a group of 2 at a 4 top. The Eggplant Rolatini was just fried with little contents. My wife's Sea Bass was fishy. My sirloin was actually quite tasty, but the presentation of the side just thrown onto a side plate was awful - along with how bad the roasted potatoes were. I've honestly had just as good a meal at Outback. Sorry to say but this was NOT a $300 meal.

Driving from VT to NYC, we stopped last night in Ridgefield, CT for dinner at TerraSole. Lovely ambiance outside with awning covering patio. Attractive blankets at each chair but warm enough last night so no need. Food very good, staff friendly and welcoming. Delightful experience! We’ll be back next time in the area.

The service was good and professional however on more than one occasion we had difficulty getting their attention.

We ordered an espresso martini and confirmed it was made with real espresso. It was the weakest, most tasteless espresso martini I have ever had. No froth. I should have complained but I didn’t want to be that person. Definitely was not worth the $17 we spent on it.

TerraSole is one of our family favorites. We've been going there on dates and anniversaries for as long as we've lived in town, and they always impress. I ended up ordering the steak special and while it was pricy it was worth every penny. My wife got one of her perennial faves, the Cavatelli, and it was delicious as always. Staff was professional, outdoor seating was perfect.

The service was excellent. The food very good. The ambiance nonexistent as you look out at a parking lot. The main reason for the rating was the price. My wife and I shared a salad appetizer; we each had an appetizer and one bottle of sparkling water. No alcohol and no dessert but the bill with taxes and an average tip;was $150. IMO incredibly expensive for what you got. I can’t say I will never return but it won’t be any time soon.

We really wanted to like this place.
First of all, the dumpster smell ! We love all the extended patios into the parking lots to accommodate more outdoor seating but they should consider to not have extended so close to the dumpster. Just the slightest wind and gag! The prices are just crazy. 2 pieces of sashimi that was not properly cut through was 18-20$. I want to think it was the best quality but honestly seem like the same sashimi you could get anywhere. We ordered a dozen oysters. The presentation is over the top and I’m pretty sure the oysters were pre-shucked. No liquor was left in the shells. The oysters were dry, due to no tasty liqueur/ tastes oyster water and therefor lost all flavor. I do want to give many thanks to the oyster shucker - they were perfectly shucked!
I also want to give thanks to the excellent service. Helpful and good flow from greeting to describing the menu.

Over the years we have been to Terra Sole many times. Our experience have always been positive for the most part. This past Saturday we went there as a last special dinner with our twin daughters who are going off to college for the first time. I realized immediately that we should have specified seating outside as there was a table of approximately 16 people seated right behind us who were extremely loud and celebrating a birthday. We just couldn’t hear each other talk. It really made for a difficult evening. While the bus staff was very attentive in clearing dishes and filling our water glasses, our main server was not attentive at all. Our dinner came at least an hour after ordering and with no apology she just stated that there was a problem with the computers and that’s why our dinner was late and that it would be coming out shortly. Once our dinners did arrive no one came to ask how it was and no one offered extra cheese to place on top of our pastas. We felt ignored and while we don’t mind spending money for a nice dinner, we were not attended to as we should have been. Additionally at the end of the meal we were not offered the usual biscotti. That was disappointing. It was interesting however that at the end of the meal our server came over with the iPad which was functional and the only options for tip were 20% and over. We did not feel that the service deserved 20% and would not have given her 20% if we had the option. I think we will take a break in coming for awhile.

Overall the quality of the food and service was excellent. It is a little pricey but. you know that going in. The reason that I rated the ambience as a 3 was the size of the outdoor tables. We had a party of 4 and the 4 entree plates barely fit on the table. We had to move glasses, etc. off the table to fit the entree plates. All outdoor tables seem to be the same size so it was not a matter of getting a different table. Inside tables appeared to be much larger.

We’ve been going to TerraSole for years now, and the service is always good. Last night, it was exceptional. Our server, Daryl (no relation), was phenomenal. Truly a delightful human being to interact with. The guitarist playing on the patio was also great. And the food, as always, was fantastic.

We’re huge fans of the restaurant but they need to reconsider their approach to this new normal. The menu is just too damn complex and long — sushi, Italian tasting menu, regular menu and specials. Plus a preface to the menu that talks about how unique the place is and why we need to be patient. Too much information. I want a meal not a pHd. They need to simplify their offerings and focus on what they do really well.

Second, they need to reconsider the live entertainment. The place is too small and the volume is too damn loud. If they’re hell bent on entertainment, keep it to music not vocals — they had a great guitar player for awhile.

And quit the cringeworthy wine push at the beginning of the meal — trying to sell me a bottle of their favorite before I’ve settled in my seat. That’s tacky.

I hope they listen. They’re starting to lose their base.
