Food and service was wonderful. I do wish they would change their policy that all food needs to be order together. Having a salad or an appetizer and then ordering is much more relaxing. Plus the timing never works out and the dinner always comes out while still eating the first course.

Even tough the majority of the tables were empty, had the impression that we were being rushed. The waiter took the bread, condiments and water bottle while we still had food in front of us!!
Food wasn't as good as on previous visits and had same entree
Not a good experience this visit! Hope it improves or will cross off my list😪

Our appetizers came out at the same time as our meal so we didn’t get to extend the meal and experience as we would have. We were comped the two appetizers we didn’t eat but obviously the experience wasn’t great.

Food was excellent! The crispy eggplant meatball was to die for and had to take home 1/2 my pasta dish as it was huge. Highly suggest Teca!

Not fans of the new menu. This was our first off experience. Also, since the app asks, we noted we were celebrating a birthday but there was no acknowledgment.

Service was extraordinarily slow. Not sure why. We waited at least 20 minutes before the initial drinks we ordered arrived. Pizza and salad arrived quickly and were delicious, as usual. But that was it. The rest of the food took forever. 2 dinner salads and a cavatelli dish arrived around 8:45. Not real complicated. 7:30 dinner reservation. Left restaurant at 9:39 pm. No desert ordered, we we one of the last to leave. First bad experience after many visits. The restaurant was clearly very busy.

The GM later contacted me and explained the service was unacceptable. He compt the meals. Management that takes the time to make it right understands the value of the customer and the customer’s experience. It is nice to have your voice heard and appreciated. We look forward to returning to Teca.

We wanted to dine outdoors but rain was in the forecast. We knew we could dine on the patio under cover at Teca, so we made reservations. We have eaten at the restaurant many times over the years but became tired of the menu. They removed some of my favorite items like the halibut and tuna tartare. We are so glad we went as the dinner specials were delicious. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed the linguine and clams with scallops. I added red pepper for some spice. YUM! My husband had the mushroom ravioli which he rated a B+. Hopefully they will add these items to the regular menu. Our waitress Jordan was attentive and professional. She went out of her way to stay on top of our table without checking in too much. If you want to dine outdoors for a tasty meal or brick oven pizza, Teca Newtown Square is wonderful!

The food was really good and it is a huge restaurant. They must hold events there.

We were traveling and saw the great reviews. We stayed off the carbs because we had a three hour drive that evening.

We ordered a salad, the meatball appetizer and the grilled octopus. All of it was tasty. By the time pizza arrived we were full and after one slice each, we boxed the rest.

Now on to a review of the restaurant during the covid era. Everyone stared at us like we were aliens. We were the only ones with masks. The only ones. We were seated outside. Ate and left.

We were celebrating a gender reveal party with our friends and the staff was very accommodating! The wrote “It’s a Girl” in balsamic glaze on the plate with the Caprese salad! The food and outdoor ambiance was perfect and recommend this restaurant to anyone celebrating any special occasion. They have lots of private event space available too.

Great dining experience for our family of 5 (including 3 kids). We were seated right away, lots of space between tables. Service was timely, friendly, and they did a great job of ensuring our kids received their food first. Drinks were fantastic - my Rose Sangria was exactly what I expected. Kids loved the chicken cutlet, specialty pizzas, and charcuterie. The bucatini w/veal was excellent, steak was perfectly cooked, and we had plenty to take home for leftovers. Overall a great experience and we will return!

Great food and service. One problem with ambiance: The retractable wall on the deck was down and not enough wind for the level of humidity. Had to ask for them to put it up and then they put it back down before we were finished with dinner.

My wife and I love the outdoor porch at Teca in Newtown Square. We ordered all appetizer as they were filling and delicious. My wife order the Caprese salad and Ahi Tuna Credo, and I ordered the meatball and mussels. My wife loved the Ahi Tuna enjoying both dishes, and I always love the meatball; and the mussel sauce was outstanding as I ate it like soup.

We have never had a bad meal at Teca Newtown Square or in West Chester as well!

Placed reservations for the outdoors and I thought was the pavilion obviously I was wrong was seated next to two parties of 15-20 each which was quite loud. All appetizers and entrees took forever no apologies were made. Food was average, my medium rare steak was medium well I didn’t want to send back thought I’d have to chew my thumb off waiting for it to get back.

The food and service were excellent. Outdoor seating was plentiful & well-spaced. The only disappointing thing was that my friend & I expected the bucatini ragu would have a tomato base. It was good, but just not what we expected. Also, I was glad I was able to get a mixed green salad even though it was not on the menu. Tom & the other servers were very efficient. All in all a good experience.
