Terre is a casual Italian spot in Park Slope with 100 different natural wines by the glass, as well as some shareable small plates, pastas, and a few red-meat entrees. The tagliatelle ragu is a good move if you want something heavy, but we like this place best for wine and charcuterie. The friendly servers will offer plenty of tastes from the wine list, and they’ll do the same for the various cheeses and cured meats. Terre is a very solid, low-commitment date spot. We recommend sitting at the narrow bar up front (rather than the quiet dining room).
