I love the food at Tecca, they nailed it. The service however needs some work. We felt exceptionally rushed by our sever, had to put a food order all in at once, and the young men delivering food are still learning their tables and how to tell how food is prepared (my guests got each other’s steaks). For the price you pay for Tecca, they’ll need to step this up. They were exceptionally busy and I know help has been very tough to find. I would go back eventually.

Everything was delicious. Our guests who are usually very picky even loved Everything. The NY strip steak was cooked and seasoned perfectly. The branzino was wonderful. Our server was attentive and very nice.

Angry crab pasta is definitely not the same. Service was poor. Waiter was friendly but was focused just on tables much larger than us. We sat for 20 minutes without menus or drinks or bread or even a greeting. Was charged for a iced tea that was never delivered to me. Will not be going back to this restaurant anytime soon. We were looking forward to going out to dinner, but Tecca needs to step it up in service and recipes returning to how great they were prior to the Covid interruption.

Service was understaffed and our waiter was overwhelmed. Appetizers came out very late and one person in our party got the wrong entree. Have had good experiences here before but this was an off night for Teca.

We were a party of nine and ended up waiting two hours for dinner with one person not getting his meal and on having to return theirs. So, not happy customers. I can only think maybe they were short staffed. Thank you.

Peggy, We sincerely apologize for our missteps last night. That said, this review is disappointing after our in-person dialogue. We corrected our mistakes, removed the associated items from your bill and presented a generous gift card for future use. Additionally, you did not wait two hours for your meal. You were seated at 7:07PM and finalized payment at 9:06PM. That length of time falls well within our standards for a party of nine guests. Best of luck dining elsewhere in the future.

This is my first time dining at Teca that wasn't for a special event. Overall, it was OK. For the price we paid for the entrees I was surprised that it did not even come with a small salad or soup. I had a glass of Sangria, my friend had a glass of Pino Grigio, we both had an entree and the total was $84. That is pricey in my opinion.

Charred Octopus appetizer was great, although a bit costly. The seared monkfish w/prosciutto over lentils was great for entree although the shredded fennel salad that accompanied was no more than fair.
Ample to large portions.

I do wish I’d been brought a glass for my bottled beer, for which their selections are somewhat limited.. no Bass, no Guinness, and many other good standards lacking, esp by comparison to their tap.

A bit noisy, even in the semi outside porch.

Food was a mixed bag. Branzino was very good. Heirloom tomato salads were also good. My pasta dish was literally swimming in oil - so much so it was hard to eat. Service was slow, but the place was very busy. Noise level inside is VERY HIGH. We asked to be seated in the porch area where it was more tolerable.

Stopped in early and sat at the pizza bar for cocktails. Can't tell you how good it felt.

The meatball appetizer was huge and delicious. The stuffed longhots were not overly hot making them enjoyable. Our waiter was great, taking his time with our order, suggesting the house wine for tasting, and giving his advice on the food courses. The spaghetti and angry crab was not as spicy as you might expect, but some red pepper flakes helped. The Orecchiette was tasty but the mild sausage was served in crumbles and not easy to find.

They did have Blanton's Bourbon for a very good old fashioned. The house wine was a 2012 dry Italian red that was well suited to our meals. If you try this wine ask that it be decanted.

The Tiramisu was simply excellent.

We were seated in their covered deck. There were several large groups and we were initially seated next to a very boisterous party of 12. After moving us to another section, our experience improved immediately. Our server Tom was very attentive and took our drink and food order after going over the menu. We had the cucumber caprese salad, entrees were herb crusted salmon and margherita pizza. Food and service was excellent. Only negative was the noise level on the deck since it was quite full. Other than that, I would highly recommend Tecca.

We were 6 adults and 2 toddlers there for a birthday celebration. Staff was very accommodating in adjusting menu for the children. The food was delicious from appetizers to desserts. Everyone was pleased.. I had the Bronzino. The Teramisu was one of the best I sampled.
