This is going to be an uninspired review for an uninspiring restaurant. I ate at Terra Rossa about a month ago and haven’t been motivated to write anything about it. First of all, let me start out with the best dish we had: the lemon scallop risotto — 5 scallops on a bed of risotto. Some scallops were more seared than others, but all were tasty and clean. The risotto itself had a nice al dente and creamy texture. The sliced veggies (celery, asparagus, tomatoes, etc) that were mixed in added some varying textures and flavors to the dish. As the title of the dish indicated, there was a distinct lemon taste.

The other entree we ordered was the shellfish diavolo — shrimp, scallops, lobster, clams, mussels, spicy tomato and tagliolini. The spicy tomato sauce was anything but spicy. With all the different ingredients, it’s amazing that they made it as bland as it was. The pasta wasn’t anything special, the lobster and shrimp were overcooked and rubbery… My wife was so disappointed that she spent most of the dinner eating my risotto.

For dessert we opted for the chocolate lava cake. That’s always a winner isn’t it? Not this one. It was served cold and the center was solid. No lava here. The cake did taste wonderful, although it was incredibly rich. It was more like a really delicious and big brownie dessert.

It was easy to get seated on a Saturday night and now I know why. I doubt I’ll be back.
