It happened to be a slow night so noise was low, but this is a standard choice. Always safe but always great.

Reservations are usually a must.

This is not the Teresa's Cafe of quite a few years ago. The ambiance is gone with seating more fitting for outdoor dining. The food was only fair, with less than average calamari for starters. Some of our entrees were tastier than other entrees. The service was slow, and the restaurant was noisy while children were dining. Frankly, the tab was too high for the meal and ambience we received.

We enjoyed our early evening at Teresa's Next Door for drinks and then Teresa's for dinner. My partner noted that Teresa's was unfortunately not the same as Teresa's of a few years ago. The atmosphere, beer and bar selections at Teresa's Next door (the connected restaurant) were excellent. I had a glass of Pliny The Elder and it was wonderful, while my partner enjoyed a glass of white wine. The menu at Teresa's Next Door was eclectic and we plan to go back. We left the bar area and went to Teresa's Café for dinner as planned. Although an "Italian" restaurant, the atmosphere does not really suggest Italian. We would have preferred to see more single tables with white tablecloths instead of many high top tables for 6. That said, our appetizer and dinners were excellent. Our appetizers were a gazpacho of cucumber and honeydew as well as chorizo filled dates. Both were very good. My meal was the chicken picatta (boneless thighs) and my partner had the sausage and ziti. Both were excellent. Service was excellent and the town of Wayne seems like a little gem.

This is not the Teresa's of yesteryear - the atmosphere is less upscale than it was 10-15 years ago. The food is still as delicious as ever, and the bar is a nice addition from when it was byob. Service is good, drinks were great. The entrees were knock-it-out-of-the-park good; I had the spaghetti squash dish on the menu and it was superb. My husband had the bolognese that he's been ordering since 2002, says it's still as amazing, although the portion was half the size it used to be. Overall, a solidly good choice with excellent food and a gigantic, well curated beer and cocktail selection.

My husband and I heard about Theresa's Cafe from a friend the night before. We didn't have anything special planned for our anniversary and wanted to check out the scene for Philly beer week, so Theresa's was perfect. Fantastic beer selection, wonderful food, totally cool setup (the lighting!!!), and the staff was so sweet. I'd do the 1 hour drive down again for sure.

First time diners at Teresa's. Would go back in a heartbeat. The service was friendly, the wine $20.00 off a bottle on Monday (Yay!). Pasta and risotto were delicious. I thought the artichoke appetizer tough, the only down for the meal. Did not try dessert this time.

Despite great current reviews and having been to this restaurant a few years ago, I have to say we were disappointed. Our server was cordial and fun but incredibly slow. It was an hour between appetizer and entree.

My wife was assured by our server that the tuna was sushi grade despite being labeled in the menu as Albacore. She ordered the tunat rare and was served something that could only be called well done. Not so well done if you ask us.

The artichokes, which our server said were her favorites, were salty, salty, salty. Maybe some like this, but we don't.

My main dish was pasta Emiliana, again a favorite of our server. It was again way too salty for my tastes. Still, since the tuna was sent back, I ate it - well most of it.

Getting the check took way too long too. Since the seating is metal chairs, they became unfomfortable and by the end of our dinner, we just wanted to pay and leave.

I'm so sorry to write this review, but we will not return.

We hadn't been to Teresa's in a few years and we remembered how much we liked it. The food was delicious, portion sizes were good (not too big, not too small) and the drink list was inventive. We loved the "create your own" gin & tonic. But the best part of the experience was our server, Liam. He was knowledgeable, sweet, authentic, took his time to talk to us about the menu options, and was just a pleasure. The restaurant, and his parents, should be very proud of him!

Great mid week dinner with a friend. The bison burger and fried avocado salad were perfectly prepared and satisfying in the cozy Teresa's Next Door. Always crowded, even on a Tuesday night, the wait staff is always friendly and in the ball. Doesn't hurt that they serve Stateside vodka!

I just don't like the vibe/lighting on the left side of this restaurant- the decor is super sparse, almost too plain, and the primary-colored lighting is so random...I feel like you can never tell what the actual color of the food you're eating is bc it gets so distorted by the lights. And the food is ok, not great. They do have an extensive whiskey/Scotch menu if that's your thing.
