Terramia Ristorante

Nominated for: BEST Italian - Traditional

Terramia Ristorante 98 Salem St Boston MA (617) 523-3112

The Scene: With only about a dozen tables, this popular Salem Street restaurant guarantees an intimate atmosphere, especially on weekends, when the place is packed and harried waiters struggle to recite the nightly specials over the noisy crowd. Still, gourmands and well-informed tourists put up with the prohibitive noise levels and cramped seating arrangements in order to enjoy some of the North End's most adventurous dining. With its soft lighting, stucco walls and beamed ceilings, the dining room sports a slightly rustic vibe.

The Food:

Chicken parm wishes and lasagna dreams are thwarted by Terramia's far-reaching, modern Italian menu--nowhere else in the neighborhood can diners enjoy an order of sweet lobster fritters with a tangy balsamic-honey glaze. The ever-changing menu incorporates seasonal vegetables and the catch of the day. Homemade pasta dishes feature unconventional preparation styles--ravioli is served open-faced, with scallops, shrimp and zucchini, in a lobster mascarpone sauce.

Ate there the other night, I had the house mix salad., oh my god! the dressing was amazing, wife and I shared the Spaghetti Dish & Chicken Dishes which were also fantastic. and that wasn't it Banana carmel bread pudding was to die for.. This was my first time here and i'll definitely be back. Great Find .. this Gem needs more advertising. I would of never found it if i didn't make a wrong turn on to Salem in the North End.
