Description: Welcome to Theresa's South where you will find authentic Italian cuisine with recipes that have been passed down through the generations. This is a family owned and operated business so they take great pride in everything that comes out of their kitchen. The food is excellent and the service is superb! They use only the finest and freshest of meats, seafood, produce, and ingredients. Everything is homemade, from their sauces and pastas to their salad dressings. The bread is baked locally and delivered fresh daily. The portions are very healthy to satisfy any appetite and the menu widely varied so there is something for all tastes. For dessert they feature fresh homemade banana bread pudding, or maybe a slice of homemade flourless chocolate cake! This is the place to enjoy a great meal, hang out with family and friends, and have some good conversation. They are available for private parties and can accommodate up to 100 people. This is a must try and will be your new favorite Italian restaurant. This is a BYOB establishment. ** There is additional parking available at the municipal parking lot off of Bridge Ave.

I recently had dinner here with family. What great weeknight meal experience. Even on a Monday they were full. We arrived in time for or reservation and were seated promptly at a corner table. The server was courteous, efficient and friendly. The food was well prepared and fresh. We all had either seafood or pasta dishes, and there was not a complaint to be had. I will definitely be returning to this neighborhood restaurant in the very near future.

Food was good but service left something to be desired. Bunch of teenagers/college aged kids as servers. Waitress was unattentive and we had to keep asking for help. I had skirt steak which was good but my friend had gnocchi which were rubbery. Desserts taste like they were frozen.

Was so happy to hear that they reopened! Went there on a Sunday afternoon, server was at the door holding it open sothat I could get my mom in then we saw it was a brunch menu we asked if we could have the dinner menu and they accommodated us! The food is fantastic and our server was oh so pleasant. Excellent Resteraunts are not very common in my opinion around here but this one is makes the grade!
