$20 for $40 Worth of Italian Cuisine
The menu includes crispy buffalo mozzarella with oven-roasted tomato and basil pesto ($16), housemade gnocchi ($19), open-face ravioli with scallops, shrimp, and lobster mascarpone salsa rosa ($25), sea bass filet with lobster saffron risotto ($36), and gluten-free chocolate cake ($7).
There’s no such thing as a free lunch. But there is such a thing as a free dinner, at least a gluten-free one. Terramia Ristorante proves it. As a Boston.com article points out, executive chef Joshua Breen and his team are more than happy to take the gluten out of their housemade pastas, which they toss with fresh ingredients and sauces. An example is their gnocchi with chilies, mozzarella, basil, and San Marzano tomatoes. The seasonally changing menu of simple, yet creative Italian cuisine earned the eatery top rankings from Zagat, which praised its "interesting preparations of traditional dishes."
Only about a dozen tables populate Terramia Ristorante, which has been a North End trattoria since 1993. Stucco walls and beamed ceilings set the scene for those cozy Italian dinners. And wall paintings that depict bucolic scenes such as fields ensure that guests remember their food was not grown out of well-watered asphalt.

“Make a reservation or you may not get in. Try the specials of the day, especially if they offer Chilean Sea Bass. The Pappardelle alla Bolognese with traditional ground veal, beef, pork meat tomato ragù, basil, and Parmegiano cheese is always delicious. For an appetizer we loved the Salsice con Polenta (Homemade Italian sausage, sautéed broccoli Rabe and wild mushrooms, warm Italian polenta cake, Fontina fondue). The flourless chocolate cake for dessert was a perfect end to a wonderful meal.”
