My husband and I had dinner at this wonderful restaurant next to our home. The staff were knowledgable and enjoyable - what a nice change from our more typical restaurant experience in London. Aside from the exceptional service, the wine was at a great price point and perfectly paired with our food. We each had 3 courses and everything was delicious (even the tasty olives served upon arrival!). This is exactly the type of place we have been looking for, local, good quality and value - definitely somewhere that we will visit soon again. They even do takeaway!

Terra Vergine is an Italian restaurant specializing in Abruzzese food.
The purpose of the restaurant is to share our origins with the UK, characterized by a perfect mix between naturalness, pureness and a sense of liberty.
Terra Vergine is the representation of all these sensations that combined with the quality of our food, creates a dream environment characterized by a union, without doubt, an idyllic taste and pleasure.
The name of the restaurant is inspired by the famous Abruzzo writer Gabriele D’annunzio who loved to describe
Abruzzo as a region that is not “polluted”, where the beauty of the landscapes and the spirit “strong and gentile” of the inhabitants make it a Terra Virgine (virgin land), pure and to be discovered.
In other words he wanted to emphasise the love and care that residents of Abruzzo put into the making of their food, making them as natural as their way of being.
