It was great it was slow that night, because of the holiday weekend, but our food and service were great! Thanks will go again!

The food was delicious! I had eggplant napoleon for an appetizer and stuffed rigatoni for an entree. Cute place, quiet atmosphere, great service.

This is the first Italian restaurant I have ever been to that they don't give bread with the meal. All salads were extra[$8 to $9 each}. It took 35 minutes for the meal to arrive and then the pasta was not cooked and some stuck together in clumps. Street parking only {meters or credit card payment}. NEVER AGAIN

Asked for bread and butter and was told it would be 2$. Daughter had blackened salmon and vegetables were cold and had to be heated . Wife had snapper piccata which had a flavor of sauce but no sauce and wasn't breaded and sauted. Asked for sauce for fish and had seeds of lemons and she thinks she broke her tooth. I asked for wine but the waitress told me that the shipment didn't come in. We ordered strawberry salad which said on menu Swiss cheese but was served with mozzarella and we weren't told. Wife complained to manager but was wife of owner who could care less. I could go on which is pathetic. I was celebrating my birthday as well. The restaurant is aptly named as it is indeed a terror.

Food was good service a bit slow. Bar limited to beer and wine. Over all a very experience. Would go back

I can not knox the food. The service was horrible! It took 40 minutes from when my daughter got served to the last person served. There were 4 in our party. We went on a Tuesday night. Everyone had the same service. And some people walked out. We only saw 2 people running the place. I had 2 Groupons for this place...thankfully they gave me a credit so I don't have to go back or lose money!

mediocre at best - chose this due to association with Nicole's Italia which we used to love.

Very impressed! My chicken parm was delicious and companion was very happy with the chicken francaise. The sauce is so good and obviously simmered for the appropriate amount of time. Very flavorful. I'm Italian and usually am disappointed with red sauce from restaurants. Not so here! Also, the mozzarella sticks are handmade and the best I have ever had. We will definitely return!

Delicious homemade soups, bruchetta, lobster ravioli and chicken entree. The owner waited on us with care.

A nice owner who just doesn't seem too interested in providing a proper dining experience. No wait staff, no busser, No bartender. Just the owner and I assume a cook in the kitchen. No bread for the table even ordering Spaghetti and meatballs, veal, etc. asked for it- told not available. Chicken wasn't cooked and had to go back. Overcharged when the bill came , wasn't too surprised. C-

From Our Editors

You know an Italian restaurant takes its pizza seriously when it pays attention to its oven. Terra Italian Restaurant ordered a custom-built Adirondack bluestone oven that crisps up pizzas and flatbreads in a matter of minutes. Cooks slide dough into the searing-hot wood-fired oven after covering the dough with housemade sauces, ricotta, fresh mozzarella, and fresh basil.

They also whip up pasta specialties such as lobster-stuffed ravioli finished with a vodka-cream sauce and linguine topped with clams.
