Terramia Restaurant Review

: Chef turnover is usually a death knell for restaurants with distinct personalities, but after many a personnel change, the North End's Terramia continues to shine. Somehow, the tiny dining room manages to feel as charming as it does cramped; somehow the menu manages to achieve novelty without sacrificing tradition. Lobster fritters with balsamic-honey glaze hint at the Orient beyond the Boot; artichoke-Fontina ravioli with pulled duck and walnut-crusted pork tenderloin with prune sauce make a pageantry of peasantry. One caveat: like many trattorias in the neighborhood, Terramia doesn't serve dessert, but there are plenty of caff├Ęs around the corner where you can cap off your meal with cappuccino and cannoli.
