This Greenwich Avenue Italian restaurant is both comfortable and a diner's delight. In the rear of the restaurant is a sit down bar with a pleasant surprise, especially on cold days, a wood burning pizza oven. The pizza looked great. We dined on a traditional...More

Description
The tantalizing aroma of Northern Italian cuisine fills the air at this lively trattoria, situated in the heart of Greenwich, Connecticut, amid the upscale shops and boutiques of Greenwich Avenue. With vivid frescoes and the soft glow of sconces creating a warm environment inside, and a charming outdoor terrace inviting al fresco dining on warmer days, guests of Terra are treated to savory, wood-fired pizzas and fresh, handmade pastas—lauded as “excellent” by The New York Times.
