My party of 6 had a great meal here with excellent service,. Our only issue was being crammed at a small table in the window. Very busy place but the homemade pasta was excellent, as was the Antipasto appetizer.

Family of three ordered lots of dishes. All of them were delicious. The service was also fantastic. Can't recommend this place enough...the food is fantastic. I truly don't know what the poor reviews were about. I have eaten at many Michelin rated restaurants and this place is just as good as they are without all of the bus people.

We started with the Caprese salad. The tomatoes were about the best you can get in April, but the basil and cheese were superb. Nice bread with olive oil to dip. I had the chicken marsala over wilted spinach and fingerling potatoes, and every part of this dish was superb. My husband had vegetable risotto which was excellent. We finished... More

The staff was absolutely accommodating to our 11 people group. Had a reservation for 6:30 and got our table within a few minutes. Staff was excellent, told us the specials of the day, didn't have to wait for them to return to take our order in spite of a very busy Easter night before Boston Marathon. Like that they have...

Terramia is a cozy restaurant in Boston's North End. On a Monday night, we shared the entire dining room with one other table, which caused me to pause. The food however, was good and the service accommodating. We ordered a few "primis" (starters) including Arancini (which were good, not the best), Carpaccio di Manzo (excellent) and Caprese (very good, but... More

Wow. We were visiting our son and of all the Italian joints in the north end he chose this one and we were not disappointed. The bread with oil/hummas was a nice start and our waiter was experienced, pleasant and knowledgeable. The chef's cream of asparagus soup was outstanding and the ossabuco cozy and satisfying. They were very accommodating regarding... More

There was 4 of us for dinner on a Saturday evening. The wait staff attentive, the seating tight, and the food was a tad above average. We did enjoy a nice antipasto, good pricing on wine, good entrees, but nothing was wow. We had four entrees of pasta, a vegetable side and dessert. Nothing was unappetizing but again, nothing special... More

One in our party was vegan; he was very happy to find ravioli stuffed with vegetables and it was delicious; the vegetables were not bland. They also served vegan bread. We have been to Terramia before and overall they offer very good Italian food.

My wife and I went here for dinner last night to end the Holidays. This is a great place to eat. It is quiet and romantic. We both had the tasting menu. I highly recommend this North End eatery.

Staying in North End

Neighbourhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
