Don't talk till you taste it- 8/14/2010

I can't believe people writing negative stuff on here about another restraunt (Italian Express) that shows little class on your part. I would suggest you try it before you write comments about it, and as for it being in Eastie it is not a slum area I have been here all my life and until you live here ,eat here keep your negative comments to yourself. I wouldn't write on about Terramia since I never ate there. more

Fantastic! 5/31/2007

Cozy space with friendly, knowledgeable servers. Salads were sauced excellently. Halibut special was cooked to perfection. Ravioli was to die for. Will return soon. Highly recommended. Pros: Food, Service, Value, Atmosphere Cons: Washroom cleanliness more

quaint and delicious 10/10/2006

I had never eaten great Italian food until I visited the North End. Since my visit to Boston was brief, I decided on Terramia because of the many good reviews. The restaurant is set away from busy Hanover. It's actually larger than what the facade would imply. The interior is softly lit by candles and the seating is slightly cramped, which didn't represent a problem until people rose. Everyone in the restaurant seemed engaged in vibrant conversation and to be enjoying their dinners. I thoroughly enjoyed my lobster risotto, which was cooked well and contained much more lobster than I expected. My girlfriend loved her duck and artichoke ravioli. The glasses of house wine cost on the higher side, but are still reasonable. The absence of dessert and coffee isn't a problem since there are stores that serve both near Terramia. The service is adequate and unobtrusive, although a bit on the slower side. The restaurant was bustling early in the week and later in the evening, so I assume that reservations are a good idea. Pros: cozy interior, vibrant atmosphere Cons: parking is awful, but not the restaurant's problem more

One of the Best Italian Ever ! 7/15/2006

I tried Terramia at 98 Salem St, North End. The food was great (I had a salmon special and lobster fritters and my partner had the veal chop), the ambience was warm and cozy, and there was a decent selection of wines. Service was very attentive also.\r Thank you and I'll be back ! Pros: service, food, ambience Cons: parking(go for parking lots), small place, not for kids more

molto bellisimo 9/13/2005

What a wonderful place, tucked away on this little sidestreet in the heart of the north end. The food and ambience were tremendous with a friendly atmosphere and servers that pay attention to your every need. They smile and make conversation without that pretentious stuffiness you would find uptown. Truly a wonderful experience. more

Terramia before and now 7/30/2005

I am (TERRAMIA) restaurant client from about 5 years, I like the PASTA. Terramia was (in my opinion) the best Italian restaurant in the NORTH END but not now. Last week I went with my wife and her parents. I ordered as usual my favorite pasta (RAVIOLINI) the sauce was like water too loose and my wife's gniocci was too dry without sauce in. I am sorry but this is what happened to me. I will never come back to eat in my (TERRAMIA). Pros: bad food more
