Awesome food and service. We usually go in warm weather when there is outdoor seating. This time was different and we were disappointed that so many tables were setup inside. We were almost rubbing elbows with the couple at the next table. Fortunately the table on our other side was open or it would have seemed like a high school cafeteria.

That said, dinner was awesome and so was dessert. Mike our waiter was terrific and went out of his way to be helpful.

We have dined at Terrasole several times. The food is outstanding as is the service. The Owner/maitre d' is on top of every little detail going on in the dining room. Nothing goes unnoticed and that is what makes the service and the food top notch. This spot can be a great one for a special occasion.

Went with my wife for dinner. We shared a sausage with cherry peppers and broccoli rabe for an appetizer. Outstanding. For the main course, I got the veal osso busco which was excellent. My wife got the lasagna which was made with beef short ribs which was also excellent. A little noisy but manageble.

You will find the food at Terra Sole to be some of the best in the area. In fact, it's some of the best, period. The chef is truly amazing.

The service is very friendly and very helpful, although not always completely professional in demeanor. They are often young and inexperienced, and do not rise to the level of the food, which is 5 star. They are good, but I would like to see some carer servers in a restaurant of this caliber.

My wife and I love the restaurant, and we are glad that we live nearby so we can visit often.

This is agreatl local Italian restaurant. The menu changes frequently and represents regional Italian cuisine. It includes an exceedingly wide variety of exceedingly fresh seafood including lobster, shrimp, crab, local fish. The quality of seafood is unusual. I have had seafood risotto which included multiple varieties of seafood on several occasions. Tonight, I had their signature lasagna, my wife local black bass, served with fresh delicious vegetables. The large menu includes a wide selection of regional Italian specialties, creatively and deliciously presented. Staff id considerate, attentive and friendly. Although this is in the middle of
Ridgefield, it feels like a local family-owned restaurant.. We have come here for dinner as a couple and to celebrate family events on many occasions. Service is prompt considerate and friendly. The wine list is excellent. Half bottles and single glasses are also available. This restaurant stands out in a region known for fine dining. Did I forget the desserts?" Wonderful, all created in house.
Well recommended!!!

From the moment you walk in you smell fresh bread baking. Soft hues of white and gentle tones of blue great you as you walk in and created by the staff. The food is delicious. Everything is balanced so perfectly and the plates are a work of art. This place makes its own pastas and desserts and everything in between. Sides include shishito peppers. Multicolor baby organic carrots. Tri color cauliflower, Sicilian eggplant caponata, goat cheese mashed potatoes and more. I had the veal chop. Center cut milk fed veal. It was out of this world. I ate every bite. My date had a black bass special. The staff is knowledgeable and attentive. The wine list is not lacking. Something for everyone. I suggest the brubello by the glass or the super Tuscan. Can’t wait to come back. Hopefully when the patio is open.

Amazing meal and outstanding service! The owner is very hands-on and is always checking on how things are going. Unfortunately the acoustics are terrible and very noisy. Very hard to have a conversation with your party without having to lean forward. They will definitely have to look into acoustics re-design to make it a truly outstanding experience

Beautiful, understated,tastefully decorated room. Attentive, polite waitstaff. Fantastic meal.
I had Bronzini, my date had salmon. Both were some of the best we had ever had. The very
gracious owner stopped by to be certain everything was to our liking. Would recommend and will return again. Thumbs up.

Eat here only a few times a year. But somehow the owner seems to remember my wife and I. He greats us and treats us like we are weekly diners. He makes us feel quite welcome. The staff is very friendly. The service is excellent. The menu choices are excellent. Portions are substantial and delicious.

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.

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!
