It was outdoor dining. They had my reservation and we didn’t wait. The food was good, service was decent, only complaint was the uncomfortable chairs on a sloped sidewalk. It’s not a gourmet restaurant but the food is good, drinks are good, people were friendly.

One of the best joints and probably our favorite place on the Main Line. Great to be back and can't wait for the bar to open.
Food, service and the beverage were excellent as always.

We had planned on sitting outside to celebrate my husbands birthday, but it was a bit too chilly. We felt comfortable and safe eating indoors. The booths are separated by dividers that provide not only an additional level of comfort, but also privacy and they reduced the noise level. The food was delicious. The service was impeccable. And, the spirts and beer selection was perfect.

We only recently ‘found’ Teresa’s but we have been there three times in the past three weeks. It’s our new found favorite and while the people and place are quite nice (truly!), the food is spectacular to say the least! The Fricadelles are frickin’ delicious. Last time I had the Eggplant Lasagna and it was equally satisfying. Our son, who is a bit of a food snob, rated the mussels a 9 1/2! You should definitely check this place out!

Just an absolutely fantastic meal. Great food and great service. The menu offers a number of unique features to familiar dishes and the server was more than happy to explain them and provide recommendations. They truly care about the details. We can’t recommend Teresa’s highly enough.

We had a another great meal outdoors at Teresa's on Friday night. The service was very good and the entrees (one of drunken mussels and one chicken) were delicious. Still a bit chilly outdoors and looking forward to another 10 degrees or more, but plenty of seating inside too. See you all very soon.

Excellent beer & wine choices, disappointing cocktail menu (if you're not drinking whiskey). Fantastic menu of mussels (6!) - we chose the Ostend mussels, I wanted to but decided against bringing the delicious broth (after devouring all the mussels) home for soup... big regret
Shrimp linguini was generous both in the number and size of shrimp. I enjoyed the Schlatteplatte and had to bring home portion of this German comfort food platter that I couldn't finish.
If dining in request a booth when making reservations... we requested and got window seats, but it was a bit cold for us, so we left our coats on.

Teresa‘s café is now a combination of Theresa‘s next-door and the café. They continue to provide wonderful delicious Gastro pub food and have blended the menus nicely. They have orchestrated the restaurant to be Covid safe. The booths have partitions and they are sanitizing like mad.
The food is so good. We absolutely love the special treat of hobbit ribs. They are a little bit spicy but really big juicy and satisfying. I get the carrot tomato soup with meatballs every time because it’s so fresh and delicious. My husband loves the penne Al Forno. I don’t have a picture of the muscles but they are always super super good served with perfect Pommes Frites | French Fries. This restaurant is delicious in house and for take out. Either way let’s keep this restaurant alive and well. (I am not affiliated with the restaurant in anyway just a fan)

Great food and really great service. However, I did order charcuterie board and I had to order two, as the board only comes with meat or cheese and I wanted both. I would suggest you create a board with a little more of a variety.
