It's Italian! A Friday night -- we went with friends. Prosecco with a shot of peach Schnapps to start for us girls, beer for the guys. Bread came our way with a what we thought was butter, but turned out to be a sort of chessy garlic spread. Not impressed with that, we should have asked for EVOO and spices,... More

If you are looking for great food in a great atmosphere, this is it! Nothing like this food around. Fresh, cutting edge fare, that won't empty your wallet, but also doesn't leave you hungry. Had Lobster Francaise, that was simply one of my favorite meals ever! Owner Bridgette, sees over the operation, making sure things are done right. If your... More

I don't give 5 stars easily though our meal here was close. But fine Italian food is a high bar, so 4 stars it is. What a terrific place. First time for us. Friendly, unpretentious, fair prices and delicious. Try the arrabiatta pasta for a great dish. Only thing ordinary was the bread. We will definitely be back.

We went with a large group with prior reservations. There was a set menu with lots of hors d'oeuvres and then we were served salad and several choices for the main course. Everything was well presented and delicious. The cookies for desert were yummy.

If your after a good meal at a reasonable price go to Edde Terra and see Bridget and the gang. They will make you feel like family. The service is great and so is the food and that's what really matters.

I had the pleasure of finding this gem while being out of town for work. I own my own contract company from Ky and while staying in Kingston I found Ecce. From the moment I met the staff I felt right at home. As traveling contractors with about 15+ technicians we meet a lot of people and try many many... More

This was our first visit to Ecce Terra and certainly wont be our last. We ordered 2 appetizers to share ...the buffalo style calamari and the duck & bacon wontons. The serving of calamari was quite large so we opted to take most of it home so that we could enjoy our dinners. My husband had the stuffed chicken parm.... More

My husband and I were looking for a place in Kingston for dinner and remembered the good things we had heard about EcceTerre. The dining room was casual, comfortable and the service was excellent. Bridgette, the friendly owner, welcomed us and had cocktails on the tablet within a few minutes. Everything we ordered was delicious, the food was straight forward... More

Was traveling from New York City, and found Ecce Terra in Uptown Kingston. They were super nice from the minute I walked in the door. The bartender Hannah poured a great drink for me, and told me about the area. Bridget took me to my table and recommended the house made sausage and halloumi cheese. It was amazing. Food was...

We decided to go here for lunch after seeing good reviews on TA. We were not let down. My roasted vegetable ravioli dish with Alfredo sauce was so rich and tasty. My daughter enjoyed her Portobello burger and others had the chicken parm sandwiches on ciabatta which they finished...very surprising as my mom never eats all of her meals.
