As always the staff was professional and accomodating. There was a power outage in the restaurant side and despite this the staff remained focus and upbeat. The food was outstanding.

The food is always wonderful as is the service! It is a bit of a drive for us but it is so worth it! The wine list is quite nice also. Looking forward to truffle tasting as we have not been able to try it in past years due to the timing of this event. We made it a priority to be there this year!

Food is always excellent here, but very pricey. We had a 7:15 reservation and had to wait about 30 minutes for table, which was ok by us. But we didn’t have any food in front of us until almost 9pm, and apparently that was the end of our waiters shift, as we never saw him again. We also came in partly because of the weekly letter I get and I wanted the white lasagna that the newsletter offered. Our waiter didn’t offer it as a special, so I moved on and ordered something else, but later we heard other tables being offered the special. So mixed review. Management was very gracious during our initial wait.

What a treasure. It was such a surprise to go to this little tucked away gem of a restaurant with superior service and fantastic food. The interior made me feel like I was at a chic little place in the foothills of Italy. I loved the place. Highly recommended. Pricey but worth it.

My sister and I met for their special Brunch menu, a meal more than ample for midday. We both had the soup de jour, butternut squash with chopped up rock lobster and me,ted cheese on top. I had had this on another occasion and it was just as delicious this time around. My sisters crepes were excellent accompanied by tasty potatoes and a small salad. I ordered the special pasta dish- layered with veal, mushrooms in a delicious tomato sauce topped with be handled sauce. Tasted wonderful except for the bottom layers of pasta that stuck together and barely yielded to the knife when I tried to cut it into. Item size pieces. Dessert was biscotti and a small glass of the cello of the day. We ordered tea as a nice ending for our brunch.

My wife and I had dinner before a show and it was exceptional in every way. We had some special dietary restrictions and the server took care of all our needs. The menu was extensive and excited to perfection. It was very busy but you were made to feel as if you were the only table. The manager checked on us, the staff was attentive and every detail attended to. Have not had such a fine dining experience in a long time. BRAVO!

Servers were polite and attentive however......It was a Wednesday night and somewhat busy. Party of 4. One person received wrong dish , which was quickly resolved. Another person had to wait 15 minutes after rest of the party was served entree for their food to arrive. Food was average . 2 people ordered tea. Both received a mug of hot water and then it took 5 minutes for someone to bring them the tea bags. 4 shots of a chocolate aperitif were brought unrequested to table as "compensation"? for the mix ups. 3 of the 4 people at the table don't drink alcohol. We won't be back. For the cost, there are other choices in town.

An outstanding example of truly fine dining. We always check the specials and the black risotto with mussels, clams and rock shrimp served with a lobster tail on top was amazing. Perfectly prepared and presented. Equally delicious was the pumpkin ravioli special. The staff was friendly and attentive but without being overly intrusive. Scott, the manager, made the rounds to ensure that everything was done to your satisfaction. A not to be missed restaurant. A final note about something I feel is important. Where many restaurants have busboys hovering to remove your plate, no one removed any dish until everyone had finished their meal.

We went before a concert at the Ridgefield Theater so we made the mistake of having a drink at the bar first. When we finally ordered dinner we were the last ones served of the people who were also going to the concert. The food was excellent, we just couldn't finish because we were already late for the show. This was our fault, not the restaurant's. Next time we know to just go straight into the dining room and all will be well. I wish I had the rest of my pasta right now!

The menu is really varied and appealing. Everything I've had there has been consistently delicious, fresh and original. It does get pretty crowded at peak hours, especially in the summer. Prepare for an occasional wait for a table. But...good for them. It's deserved.

This is by far the closest thing to dining in Italy. We drive 45 minutes to go there and it is so worth it. The food is fabulous and is the friendly staff.
You have to go and treat yourself to authentic Italian cuisine. You won’t be sorry.

The food and wine are excellent and unique. Not your usual Italian recipes and it's nice to try their specialties. We struggled a bit with the noise level. It's hard to hold a conversation because it's a busy place on a Friday night. We also felt a bit bothered by the wait/bus staff. I guess they were just trying to keep on top of our table but we kept being interrupted for clearing items off the table. So, we'd recommend it but if you're looking for a quiet languorous meal you'd need something else.

Took extended family from out of town for dinner - first time at the restaurant. The entire experience could not have been better. We made reservations prior to a comedy show at the Playhouse. We were quickly seated outside with blankets for those who were a bit chilly and the service was phenomenal. We enjoyed the house selection (Brunello) and two of us had the seafood stew, one had the braised short ribs and the other had lasagna. Each meal was impeccably prepared and we finished with great desserts. This has become one of our favorite restaurants in Fairfield county and we made dinner reservations again two nights later. If you want great food with terrific ambiance and top notch service, you need to try TerraSole!

Very interesting menu. Our apps (salads) and mains (chicken, fish) were both good, but not great. Service was terrible - they seemed short-handed for a Saturday night. Nice wine list - good selection of wines by glass. A bit pricey for what it was - seemed to be pricing for innovative menu not actual taste.

Outstanding experience... Food and the service both top notch.. The wine list is also on the same level. I had the Val Di Suga Brunello 2011 recommended by the waiter. Very knowlegable and friendly waiter by the way. No complaints at all except the place was packed. Nothing you can do. Best Italian food in Ridgefield by far.
