The staff and owner are great. The food is wonderful. It's so un-assuming from the outside but clean comfortable and homey on the inside. We all enjoyed our dinners and the chatting with George. But the desserts.... oh the desserts... save room.

My favorite Greek restaurant and I eat a lot of Greek both in the US and Greece. Lamb Shank is mild but very tasty. Burogelactico is a great custard desert. Good selection of fresh made Greek. Not just another Gyro place.

We visited Teverna for the first time yesterday, and were very pleased! This restaurant is truly a hidden gem. The owner - George, makes the experience even more memorable. Do yourself a favor, and give this best a chance. One of the best meals we've ever had!

Such a great little place - the owners are so friendly they treat you like a member of the family - make you feel right at home - the food is great - the greek salad is great, I had a white been soup and it was the best I've ever eaten. The kids had chicken souvlakie the chicken was so juicy and tenden that it was falling off the sticks. Desserts were wonderful, great Greek rice pudding, baklava etc.
