"Very well-made food and service to beat the band. Such a pleasant experience both times now. Heartily recommend Tryst to anyone who is serious about food and being treated well for the money."

A true gem among all those rhinestones in the North End, this rustic but cozy trattoria with stucco walls and beamed ceilings specializes in creative interpretations of Italian classics. <br />Behind Terramia's pane-windowed storefront on Salem Street is a busy trattoria decked out in linens, candlelight and paintings of the Italian countryside. Like the cuisine here, the atmosphere is elegant yet understated. Since opening in 1993, Terramia has aimed to convince North End diners that there was always more to Italian food than red sauce. Over the Years, the inventive and beloved restaurant has done a great deal of convincing. You'll find creative interpretations of seasonally-based classics here. <br />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.

"The dishes we selected were well made. Way too much feta on the menu for an Italian restaurant. Recently started to offer house made desserts but clearly not adept at this skill. At all. Gelato redolent with ice crystals; tiramisu had to be the worst ever (had it all over Italy and in US restaurants but this one was horrible), though it looked good. Decanting is a necessity with some of their wines, but the UK-born waiter didn't seem to know why that is. Only the last sips of the Amarone proved delicious. If one makes 7:00 PM reservations on a Sat, one will be rushed out. Recommended with serious reservations--definitely not to friends."
