Is it an arrogant assumption that everything is good with your meal so there is no reason to check in and make sure? We thought our server was just quiet but apparently he had an attitude. At least the food was good. Single restroom needed...attention.More

Looked for a restaurant that could accommodate a gluten free and nut free diet and Terramia did not disappoint. Their Cabernet by the glass was full bodied, the scallop appetizer grilled to perfection, and the Chicken Marsala the best I’ve ever had! The salmon was...just okay. The crab topping much too salty. The other people in our table loved all the pasta dishes. Our server was wonderful as well. Can’t wait to return!More

Booked a Saturday night dinner reservation. Inside was very busy and we chose the outdoor dining along the street. Overall food was very good quality - fresh pasta, tasty sauces, and excellent dessert.

This was a birthday dinner for our daughter on 8/28, the same day we moved her into her freshman dorm. We noted that on the online reservation and were greeted at the door with "Happy birthday!" She has celiac disease and the waiter was friendly...and knowledgeable and explained their careful gluten free preparations. We all loved our dishes, the complexity of flavor. Linguine alla vongole, gnocchi ai funghi, and salmon. You know how you hope a special occasion dinner will feel magical and relaxed and luxurious, so you can concentrate on conversation and enjoying the company? Terramia was exactly that. They brought out a gluten free chocolate cake with a candle in it for her birthday. Outside it was CRAZY, one of the loud crowded shoulder to shoulder nights in the North End. Once we walked inside it was an oasis of friendly calm and awesome food. Actually magical! We read a lot of reviews before picking Terramia and the atmosphere, incredible food, and staff who took time to make us feel welcome were even better than we expected. We understood why they have been in business for so long. Thank you!More

We enjoyed this restaurant with a nice selection of vegetarian and vegan options. I had the Mista salad and vegan ravioli. I thought the portion was a bit on the small side and the sauce was not as flavorful as I had hoped for. Entrées...served too other patrons looked great. They offer Indoor and outdoor seating. If you’re looking for an intimate dining experience, this restaurant is for you! The service was excellent and the staff was friendly.More

Outstanding Italian Vegan and Vegetarian Options! My mom enjoys nice sit down restaurants and turns up her nose at fully vegan restaurants (a shame). The atmosphere was lovely and they served us a great meal with options for everyone. My mom has some Lobster and...I had many delicious vegan options to choose from. I was ecstatic to be able to try some truly spectacular vegan ravioli! The servers were also very attentive!More

Have never been more disgusted at hearing the English waiter who was standing next me to while I paid describe another customer as a c**t . When I complained his colleague said sorry he is a Millwall fan , as if that in someway excuses...it ! Dining described as "on the patio " was actually in the middle of the road with car fumes constantly wafting over the food, like eating in the middle of a car park . Food was decidedly average , tables rammed so close together you literally have to get other guests to leave their tables so you can get in or outMore

The flavor profiles are all very strange. Spices used that were not recognizable. Fish tough and overcooked. Putenesca sauce was not good. Bolognese was very dry. Service was good though. The same as all the other tourist traps in the North End.
