About Teca Restaurant & Wine Bar

Teca is derived from three words. The first, paninoteca (panini bar) incorporated our more light fair and Italian tapas style dining. secondly, the word enoteca (wine bar) where we host one of the premier wine lists of the world featuring wines from our vineyard in Tuscany Casali Di Bibbiano. Finally, disctoteca, our night club venue upstairs known as Mezzanine. This space also lending itself to private functions of all kinds. At Teca, we pride ourselves in serving only the freshest and most authentic high quality ingredients around. In addition to our mouth watering menu items, we compliment our cuisine with an array of fine wines, refreshing eighteen tap beer selection concentrating mainly on European and American micro-brews, and extensive variety of fine liquors from around the world. At Teca, we believe that food and drink are one in the same and that quality should never be sacrificed.

Sunday lunch with friends. However wish there were more brunch items available than the normal lunch menu. Server, Jaimeson was very attentive and thoroughly explained items for us. Everything was very fresh. Suggest Sunday at noon offer several brunch type items.

We went to Teca for New Years Eve. We were seated immediately and Sean our waiter was terrific. He explained everything and answered any questions we had. He was knowledgeable about every app and entree. Our food was delicious and we would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Teca is on every of our favorite spots in West Chester. We were upstairs in a very cozy room with a great atmosphere. Our latest visit was New Years Eve and perhaps that was why things were not as good as usual. The salad dressing had too much vinegar and the pasta was too al dente. However, the salmon and Branzino were excellent as expected.

Not sure what type of cuisine they specialize in but seem like a lot of pasta dishes. If Italian is what you want, go someplace else. I’ve had better Italian at any generic chain restaurant. Waste of time and money.

The food and service was great. We sat in the upstairs which doesn't have the same decor or vibe as the downstairs so it change the overall experience a bit. I expect that they will continue to work on making it more warm and inviting. Great spot!

I Had the filet and risotto special, there wasn't any flavor which was disappointing. On the other hand the caprese tower was really good. The Service was just ok so for the overall experience and price I probably would not go back.

The food was good & the server was attentive . We were in a very small dining space near s bar - the noise level was such that we asked to be moved one table over ... that was a waste of time ... it was terribly loud.

We selected a wine from the wine list $38 with a second choice at $ 44 - the server said ... Well if you like this you will love .... such & such ... a $54 bottle -

This sales tactic has now happened to us at both locations .... not happy

I said " no thank you , we would like either my 1st or 2nd choice ... go figure ... the $38 was not avail - of course the 2nd wine was avail.

This restaurant offers an extensive menu. The food is delicious and the portions are large. Atmosphere is energetic with a hip urban vibe. We sampled the pasta dishes and they were very tasty. A regular Ceasar salad is large enough to share. Great service at the bar and creative cocktail menu. Will definitely dine there again.

Second visit to Teca for a birthday lunch. Again, did not disappoint. For staters, I tried the caprese tower and the birthday girl chose the calamari two ways. Both were very good. The main course was penne ala vodka with shrimp, and lobster ravioli. Our compliments to the chef on both dishes. The lobster ravioli was silky smooth with bits of lobster highlighting each bite. The penne had a delicious "kick" that was a delicious surprise. Mini cannolis and creme brulee were the dessert choices and were a perfect ending to a great celebration.

My wife and I came to the Teca in West Chester for a birthday dinner. Overall the food was excellent - the pasta was homemade, which makes a big difference in the final taste. The crab napoleon appetizer was excellent and extremely flavorful, as was the bruschetta that we shared. Fortunately we saved room for dessert and that did not disappoint either. We really enjoyed the experience and would definitely recommend it!

This was our first time here and I must say I am disappointed it took us so long to actually visit Teca. We were a party of six with a 6:30 reservation and we were seated promptly at that time.
Sadly I cannot remember our servers name but she was nothing short of absolutely amazing and made our experience a memorable one. We gave her the daunting task of simply bringing us some of her favorite appetizers and they were perfect for all of us. As far as entrees, she gave us a couple recommendations and they too were phenomenal, so of course when it was time for dessert, a few of us said just bring us YOUR favorite and no one was disappointed! It was a great experience from start to finish and we will put Teca on our go to list!

NIGHTMARE!! Teca needs to figure out if they are a restaurant or a bar. Last night my family, including my 2 kids ate dinner there. We had a 6:30 reservation. By 7:30, the bar was full of drunks who were loudly cursing. Patrons were walking out, and management, including the owner did NOTHING about it. I guess the bar tab money is more important. Food was average...you can get a much better experience heading into Philadelphia.

My date and I had dinner on a Friday and asked for a booth, but were told that booths were used for parties larger than 2 on weekends. ..
I ordered the short rib special and was surprised how expensive it was when the check came. It was good, but nothing to rave about. Will still go back for their appetizers.

We had a WONDERFUL time at Teca. Five of us were meeting and had not seen each other in a long time. We took forever to order because we could not stop talking! Our server was so patient, kind and happy and really took amazing care of us. We ordered several different drinks from beer to wine to martinis to mojitos..all were perfect. Our food was outstanding. Really, really amazing! We were seated in a cozy booth which was perfect for catching up. I HIGHLY recommend Teca and will be going back!
