My daughter chose Teresa's to celebrate her TCNJ graduation last night. She had heard good things about it while at school but had never dined there. The place was humming for a Thursday night. We noticed several other grads there with their families. The waiter Paul was polite and efficient. The service was a tad slow but the problem appeared... More

Teresa's is cozy and it was very busy for lunch. We enjoyed the intimate atmosphere. The food was really delicious while the bread was awesome. We had a bit of a wait but so worth it.

After trying to find a park for 25 mins arrived late for our booking and front lady was quite rude and abrupt about it. We were obvious international visitors due to our Accent but with our son studying at Princeton and us being regular visitors to the region it was a little off putting being brushed off like this.

Stopped in for dinner with my daughter while in the area for a regatta. I ordered a pasta dish and my daughter had pizza. Nothing remarkable about the food...very average. Our waitress was very nice and the service was the best part of the dinner. Most likely won't be returning and will try a different place the next time I'm... More

My wife, daughter and I went to eat here on April 11, 2017. The food was pretty good. My daughter and I had pizzas and my wife ordered the roasted chicken. The pizzas were very good. The problem with the chicken was that it was not cooked enough. They were very nice about taking it back, but it took about... More

Teresa's is a fun restaurant and most enjoyable when you can sit outside and enjoy a pizza and a glass or two of wine. The restaurant is a very good pizza and pasta house.

Small and nice family atmosphere. All the dishes were delicious and nice wine list. Special of the day appetizer was crab cakes... very light / no filler on a bed of greens. Awesome!

We were here when we were in town for a college visit and had an overall wonderful evening. The food was fantastic (meatballs, pizza, ravioli, risotto special, Italian wine). However the highlight was the service; the staff was over-the-top helpful and nice. If one of the kids gets in to Princeton, this will be a go-to spot for sure!

Traditional pizza in Princeton, with very nice service, but average food. The starters for share (Bruscheta) was fantastic!

This was our second visit to this restaurant. We ate lunch here once during their brunch which was very good. Most recently, we went in for dinner. Our waitress was excellent, offering recommendations and the service was great. I had the balsamic rigatoni and chicken dish as did my son and we both enjoyed it. My husband ordered one of... More
