Ordered a salad with pears, grapes, gorgonzola, pine nuts, and added scallops... delish! Scallops were some of the best I've ever had. Noteworthy also, my friend ordered the Lobster Ravioli, and there was tons of lobster and crab meat in the dish. The sauce was excellent, smoky, creamy, and even had a peppery kick. HIGHLY recommended!

Specials and family wines
Order a special and a bottle of the family wine. Neither will disappoint.

Outdoors in West Chester
Eating out in West Chester is a favorite family activity and there is no better place to do it than Teca. The excellent food, wine, service are very dependable.

We went the last day of restaurant week and were thoroughly pleased with the food and service. We intend to recommend it to friends and return ourselves.

The menu has been expanded
The menu has been expanded and outstanding. Superior service by Victoria. We are pleasantly surprised by our seating in the wine room (party of 6). A great time had by all!

Great food, bad seating, loud
Excellent wine list (they have their own vineyard in Tuscany), and an extensive, great-tasting menu. Bar area was hopping, place was quite loud - had a hard time carrying on a conversation. We were seated right in the middle of a major service corridor.
5/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were seated immediately. Our waiter was friendly and helpful with our questions. Our food was served in a timely fashion and was very good. My only complaint is the price. It cost $180.00 (20% tip included in this price) for 3 of us to have lunch with 2 drinks each. Everything is a la carte. It would be nice if salad or sides could be included with the price of the entree. Probably will not go back again because of the cost.

Always a great dinner and a fantastic evening at Teca. Lively outdoor seating and delicious food.

Food was excellent. My second trip here and the food has been great both times. Not just my opinion, but everyone that I was with expressed the same. Will be returning, often, I hope.

Italy in the heart of West Chester
I've always wanted to try Teca for the longest time, and decided to go there for my birthday with my boyfriend. Our server was Daniel and he was extremely personable and helped with his recommendations. I had their lasagna and my boyfriend had their lobster raviolis. Both were excellent. We also had their creme brûlée for dessert and that was to die for!
I think the real question in everyone's mind is if it's better than the other notable italian resturant in wc (Limoncello's) and I would definitely say "YES" because as Daniel said, everything on the menu is made from scratch. If you want true italian food, come to Teca. And make sure Daniel is your waiter because he made our first time experience amazing aside from the food!

No power, no problem!
They lost power just prior to our arrival. The owner and staff asked for patience and delivered high quality service. We started with wine and non-cooked apps in a wonderful candle lit atmosphere. As they scrambled with the power issuer, they kept updating us on news from the power company with time updates and started processing entree orders in a prudent manner. Power came on prior to the entree delivery and the food was excellent (with the exception of a slightly overcooked pork chop).

Great staple for West Chester.
Would recommend Teca for a great dining experience. Food delicious and homemade. Look forward to going back again.
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went to Teca for both Mother's Day and Father's Day this year. Although not a place I would typically take my kids, they were very accommodating to the kids. My husband requested something that wasn't on the menu that day and the chef accommodated his request. All of their food is delicious! I am Vegetarian and usually get either the Risotto of the day or Gnocchi dish - both fabulous!
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another great dinner at Teca. The Branzino that they bring out to show you before the filet it is a fantastic dinner special. And it has become my favorite dish here, so I am happy it always seems to be a special. The wine list is terrific as well. You cannot go wrong at Teca, we'll be back again.
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Teca is a great place to enjoy an outdoor lunch. The grilled calamari salad was delicious! I would certainly recommend the dish.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The wine list is wonderful and we chose a 2003 Poggio Antico Brunnello that' is on very few wine lists, Would highly recommend
7/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Never EVER disappointing!!!
The food was brilliant! We have only been to Teca a handful of times and it never seizes to impress. We had so much confidence in the food, service, ambiance and all around experience that we took our out of town relatives (with very particular taste) there for their first west chester experience. Lets just say many thanks were sent our way. We look forward to dining again at Teca. Personal recommendations: crab Napoleon, lobster ravioli, and virtually any panini

Great place to eat In WC, PA
We ate outside - great fun ! The specials were varied and wonderful . The waitress was attentive and knowledgeable.
A tad bit pricy, but will definitely go back .
Love being able to reserve the table online so easily !

Great Food & Service
Our server was very knowledgeable about the wines and menu selection, and was very tentative. The food was amazing, and delivered in a timely manner. This was our first time to the restaurant, and we will definitely be back again!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyable,service excellent.I feel you need a hostess at both entrances especially for people with handicaps.It was difficult for my husband as we came in the front then had to walk to the hostess in other room,and then back to front room to our table.It was a wonderful evening after that once we were seated
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Teca has a great selection of light, fresh appetizers and bruschettas. It is unique and has authentic Italian meats and cheeses that you won't find anywhere else in West Chester, PA. The only complaint I have is the size of the beers for the price they charge.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have enjoyed this restaurant every time I've eaten here. Very accommodating staff and excellent food.

Outdoor dining on a beautiful
Outdoor dining on a beautiful Saturday evening - what could be better? Our knowledgeable waitress took her time and answered our many questions, and allowed us to sit and enjoy our dining experience in a relaxed manner. I love it when I have to "study" the wine and drink menu; Teca is a place where you do such. Sweet Roasted Peppers and Stuffed Olives were delicious, as was the fried calamari. I've had better grilled calamari. I enjoyed my Teca Salad with tuna, my husband left none of the veal left on his plate! Food presentation is fabulous. We cannot wait to return.

Top shelf service
I had an important guest with me and the entire staff and owner made the event very memorable. My guest was very impressed with all aspects of the experience. The 2000 Argante from the family vineyard was a star!
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been to Teca several times and each time was wonderful-- the daily specials are amazing and the service is great!
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food, wine, staff couldn't be better. Can hardly wait to go again.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything we ordered was excellent !
Service to sit outside was slow even when we had a reservation.
Our waitress was a little overbearing-abrupt
But overall. Food was outstanding and we will be back
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun with Friends
Love this place! Booked a reservation because I was going with a group on a Friday night but normally Teca does a great job at having tables open. I even saw waiters bringing indoor tables outside for waiting patrons! The owner is also usually around and circulates the tables providing service whenever needed. This is on of my favorite restaurants in West Chester and love it when I'm looking for some great food and good ambiance. I recommend the lasagne bolognase :)
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went for anniversary, sat outside. If you're ok with being on the sidewalk with people walking by, not bad. Food was very good, wine list (by glass) good but not really extensive. Service was attentive and polite. There are better Italian dining options in WC (i-pasta, Limoncello) but a nice spot. Little pricey ($130.00 for 2 with 3 glass of wine between us).
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Never disappointed with this dining experience. Food, service & ambience all great!!
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent in West Chester
Ate outside in the evening, great scene, great food, great service. The wine from the family vineyard is wonderful. The burrata was a special treat.

Consistently superb in all phases of the dining experience.

Always love Teca. It's my go to place in West Chester. On this occasion I was there for a business meeting. The service was excellent but not intrusive and I was offered a booth of my choice in the main (newer) part of the restaurant. Food is always good.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great table outside that matched
the food, service, and our favorite wine from the owner's family winery. Best dining in West Chester!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a really nice time. Our request to be seated by the window was respected. It was very much like being in Paris since the windows opened completely in the same manner as doors and it was a sidewalk cafe experience. The man overseeing that everyone was happy did a wonderful job. Our waitress was so nice and was always helpful. The tuna tartar appetiser was especially good.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Girls night out!
Small servings but prices were in line. Unfortunately, we were seated in a very small room in the back so didn't get to appreciate the ambiance in the main dining area and outdoors.

Our first visit to Teca. We enjoyed it very much. The service was just the way it should be - helpful and attentive without being overbearing. We enjoyed our meals. Would definitely eat here again.

Had a great dinner with my daughter, her friends and friends of mine. Our waiter Matt was very attentitve. It was nice to be able to sit outside on one of the last nice days of the year. A great time was had by all.

Enjoyed the food and outdoor dining
Great experience. Food was delicious. Romantic dinner
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
A "go to" for us
We ate at the bar Friday night. My husband had the grilled calamari salad which was delicious and the lobster ravioli which he said was very good as well.
I had the branzino special which was grilled whole branzino filleted table side or my case bar side. The fish was delicate with a yummy lemon caper sauce. The fish was a bit cool by the time it got to me but it was good nonetheless.
We ordered a bottle of Italian red which was new to us and greatly enjoyed.

Had a great lunch here on a quite Monday, excellent wines, appetizers and entree's. Service was very attentive and knowledgeable about offerings. A little too cool to sit outside, so moved indoors, which was a good decision...beautiful interior and good music. Will definitely return.

1st meal out as a newly wed couple
we've been to Teca numerous times, but it's been a while since our last visit. had the pork chop and wife had seafood ravioli. my chop was a little dry but very tasty. never complained however I didn't specify how I wanted the chop done. appetizer capresse tower was great. House wine was reasonably priced and delicious.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We came here for our first wedding anniversary. So happy to have genuine tapas that came out fast and was delicious. Wine from their own vineyard was great. Our server was helpful and attentive without being annoying. She had a great knowledge of wine and beer.
The only thing I would change about the place is to have seating available without a tv in view. There was outdoor seating, but it was a little chilly to sit outside. Other than that, our experience there was perfect.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Worth driving 40minutes for
Please pardon my poor Italian, I can't remember this dish' Italian name, all I know is that it was a very, very tasty tuna salad. No, not your regular kind of tuna salad. It's bed of greens with big chunk of tuna. It's very good! Ambiance is very good, but they do get crowded fast comes Noon. So come early and grab a booth.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have lunch and dinner here over the last two weeks, both meals were fresh, well balanced seasonings, portion and presentation . Would highly recommend to anyone.

OMG is all I can say!
We planned a Girl's Night Out at Teca. We made reservations for 8 o clock. When we arrived, our table was ready, our server greeted us immediately, and we were amazed at the selction on the menu. The server was so knowledgable about the foods and the alcohol list. He helped us create customized meals, offered suggestions, and we were so unbelievably happy, content, and stuffed. The drinks were amazing, the food was amazing, even the speed with which our food was prepared was a little scary. Then again, the waiter was interactive, the ambiance was awesome, so time just flew by. This restaurant has it's act together. Again, OMG is all I can say!
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great for lunch
We stopped for a quick lunch and enjoyed great salads! Service was great and it was a pleasant experience. Will definitely go again and try it for dinner.
