Teresa's is always consistent. The food and drinks are great. The service is timely and friendly. The atmosphere is just right. I love meeting friends here.

Had a fabulous lunch, ate outside. The wait staff was very good and the food was very very good. Had one of their special pizzas, enough to share and of course a great desert. Very reliable food.

One of those mystifying places that endures for no particular reason. Extremely limited menu, overpriced food and wine, so-so service. I don't get it.

Travelled all day from Cambridge to Princeton via Newark International, and nightmare drive to Double Tree Hilton Princeton to find their restaurant closed for refurbishing. Lucky to find Teresa's. The ambiance, service and food were great, and we decided to go back there for breakfast,...More

An apparently very popular Italian restaurant in the heart of the village of Princeton. I was able to get a table outside under the arch, which was good because it started raining shortly after I arrived. I wanted to sit outside and the other half...More
