Great experience here all around. The food was great (and large portions), service was very attentive, good atmosphere and reasonable prices. We came from NJ to meet family from CT and chose Terra Rustica based on other reviews. If this restaurant was close to home we'd be regulars.

Delicious Italian food that is full of flavor and I really appreciate the creativity of the chef in their menu. I ordered the chicken with chorizo platter and it was amazing. Would definitely recommend.

Outstanding and nicely priced as I was treated! Actually prices are reasonable.
I had a pounded chicken breast covered with different mushrooms,onions,peppers ,and requested cherry peppers. Also there were potato’s on top. It was a fantastic dish and I even uncharacteristically finished it all with the exception glaze on the plate. One of the best chicken dishes ever! Everyone enjoyed their meals. .

Good food, nice place. The service is almost nonexistent though. They should never have taken our reservation with such awful service.

Delicious food in a dynamic environment....lots of movement and sounds around you. Staff is attentive. Get a reservation to help lessen any wait time on Friday or Saturday night. Can be a little frenetic when crowd.

It somehow tastes like an Italian and Mexican fusion restaurant ...
Wei Cheng via - May 31, 2021
We eat here a few times a month. Absolutely great food. This is from yesterday. Gluten free (I have celiac) chicken tenders and fries and a regular kids grilled cheese. They have an extensive menu just didnt have pics of anything else. Yesterday was a quick grab n go.

I just finished another delicious meal at Terra Rustica in Briarcliff. The Pollo Martini entree is to die for and I somehow managed to save/make room for slice of key lime pie which was also delectable.

Decent, friendly service and the food is quite good.

Good Drinks, Great Food, Nice atmosphere, outdoor seating as well. For the prices they charge service needs to improve. The service is always very very slow and not 100% attentive.

The calamari was excellent. They even have gluten free calamari, which is apparently very good. We also got pizzas though, which were somewhat mediocre. I would go here again and try other things, but I wouldn't get the pizza again.

I don't give 5 stars often but I was thoroughly impressed with the food and service. We sat outside, the staff was super friendly, thought of the small things. The food was cooked just right, and everything we ordered was tasty. Great experience, can't wait to bring friends back. The atmosphere was nice as well both inside and out.
