This was our first dining out experience in 8 months, and it was great. We sat outside and felt comfortable in our surroundings. There was a band playing outdoors down the block which provided nice ambiance. The food was great, as always. I highly recommend the waterzooi which was exceptional. All around, it was a great, safe experience!

We sat inside with some friends. Had great service. Tables were spread apart nicely. The menus are combined now between the cafe and pub. The emiliani pasta dish is the truth... the added chicken breast was also cooked to perfection.

My wife and I had an excellent meal at TND. We skipped appetizers but had the drunken mussels, kale soup and their BLT sandwich. The sandwich was an odd order for us for dinner, but it was sooo good. Our 2 glasses of Bells Two Hearted 2X went down smoothly. Thank you to Julia for the outstanding service. We always highly recommend dining at Teresa's or taking out.

Being from Belgium, my options for traditional Belgian foods are limited. Hence, I used to go often Teresa's Cafe when I lived in Villanova. The food was excellent, and so was the beer selection. With COVID-19, Teresa's Next Door and Teresa's Cafe have had to combine their menu and cut their selection. The new, combined menu is really hit or miss. The escargot and the fricadelles were awesome, but the bunny bite and the mussels were mediocre. If you want an authentic Belgian experience, maybe wait out the pandemic until they are back to fully operational.

As usual, an excellent meal. The menu has so many choices (appetizers, cheeses, salads, pastas, entrees , seafood and pizzas) along with great beer, wine, cocktails and frozen drinks. Great food and a nice outdoor setting.

Wnjoyed outside dining with a great server. I have enjoyed meals here before covid and always enjoyed. Great pizzas. Delicious crispy artichokes and frites and scallops. Burger was a bit overcooked, but ok. Small for its price. Would come again. A vodka soda (which two of us had, was only stateside? And barely any alcohol in the drink. We both Ended up ordering a doubles for our next drink with Q soda on the side. For those prices, there better be some liquor in that glass.

I have dined at Teresa's Cafe many times and it has become a favorite in Wayne, but on this night, the serviced tanked. The male waiter was extremely scruffy looking (appeared unbathed) and was rude. My meal arrived and was missing ingredients. Another person from the restaurant thankfully brought out the ingredients on a separate plate. The waiter kept rushing us through dinner and refused a last round of drinks. Told us to get drinks to go and drink them across the street. If this was my first experience, I would never returned. Very disappointed.

Had a very nice dinner at Teresa's Cafe on Saturday night with several old friends that came in from out of town. They are New Yorker's and very particular about their food, especially Italian, and were very happy with the dishes and the overall experience. The seating area here is quite small as typical of so many Main Line locations, but it wasn't too crowded and the noise level was acceptable (for us, not sure how loud we were to the other tables :) I would recommend either Teresa's Cafe or Teresa's Next Door.

I was only able to make the reservation for 6 people (limit through open table). We had 6 adults with a toddler who needed a high chair. Unfortunately this seemed to really throw the staff off at first and seemed to be a big inconvenience for them. It was uncomfortable for us when the server kept mentioning that he was only expecting a table of 6. Luckily after the seating fiasco, everything settled. The food was good and his service throughout dinner was consistent. Overall we had a good time- just wish they would have had a little more agility with the high chair situation.

I really like the vibe of the place and feel like it would be fun for both a girls night or a cute place for a date night. I really liked what I ordered -- a fusilli pasta with green peas and panchetta. My friend ordered the spaghetti parmesan, and the chicken was incredible. The desserts were great as well!

Food was great with a great amount of choice. Well prepared and delivered at a good pace. We did not feel rushed at all by our server and he checked on how we were doing enough. Cocktails were very well made. The main negative was the we were on top of the people next to us, the tables were was too close to each other. I get that the restaurant needs a lot of tables to make money but it was pretty bad to hear every word that was said at the next table.

We were going to go to another spot we love for New Year's Eve, but was told it was going to be a $75 per person.... So we had to scramble last minute for a replacement. I had the good fortune to luck out and get a table at Teresa's Cafe. It was lovely. They have a fabulous Happy Hour menu along with a great regular menu. My mom and I had the pasta with Scallops and Shrimp and were surprised how many shrimp were in it. I also had Happy Hour with a friend just a week ago here and the food was fabulous as well. It is a great spot and a great value. They really saved the day!
