Teca Newtown Square
Always enjoy Teca. This was a bday lunch for my friend. Food was great but service was not what I am used to there.
Waiter(Nick?) was robotic, stiff, unfriendly, and even rude at times. He brought check and said “No hurry.” But stood a few feet from me waiting. That was rude.
He is not the type of wait staff I am used to at Teca.
We sent on the porch with a group of 9 to celebrate a birthday. Our server Nick was amazing!!! We will be back. Food was delicious.
Consistently the best Italian cuisine in Delaware county. Service is friendly and attentive. Extensive cocktail and wine list. Thank you
Food and service were very good - we always have a great experience at Teca
Thank you your for sharing your experience with us. We're thrilled to hear everything enjoyed their experience! We look forward to serving you in the future. Jake Criscuolo | General Manager
Nick is our usual waiter. Hes is the best in his business and very personable.
Horrible service and they gave half of us the wrong food.
Appetizers of meatball al forno , and baked clams were very good - although beware of plenty of garlic on baked clams . My scallops were delicious as an entree - cooked perfectly. My sons ziti was good , and the ceasar salads were very good . Dessert of homemade apple pie with vanilla gelato was definitely something I’d order again . The waitress was very sweet , but a bit inconsistent . Slow service at times . In her defense - it was a busy Saturday evening . Over all a good meal - we have been before since it has been redone , and I’m sure we will be back . In Newtown Square it’s decent Italian - you know what the quality will be , and always good for pizzas and appetizers at the bar ( if you aren’t with the kids)
Our service was VERY good, from start to finish. The only drawback to the evening was the noise level, as it was difficult to carry a conversation.
The food’s presentation and flavors were phenomenal!
We read online about this restaurant. Our son was engaged the prior weekend and this was a celebration dinner for he and his fiancee`. Initially all was great. The restaurant was kind of noisy, but tolerable. Service and drinks were lovely. The host and wait staff greeted us and provided a complimentary champagne for the four of us. How cool. We then ordered a bottle of wine and a few other drinks. The coffee martini was great. We placed our order for dinner. It took a VERY LONG time to get our meal. We all began to wonder what was going on. On one occasion the server asked if we wanted another bottle of wine. We said not. After that, not one time did the server come and give us an update on our meal. We wondered and wondered what was going on. Finally dinner arrived. The risotto was very under cooked, the Chicken Parmesan was rubbery, the other two meals were adequate. When we completed the dinner, the server, after a prolonged wait offered desert. We decided that we did not want to do desert as we did not want to be there for another hour.
All in all we were there from 630 to 930 for a few drinks, a salad and main dish. The food was poor, the service was worse. It is a shame that what was an awesome start turned out so bad. We all agreed that we would not return again because of this experience. While we had a wonderful time with the kids, the restaurant let us down badly on food and service.
We have come here quite a few times and never had the issues we had tonight. It took 2.5hrs to be served and eat 2.5 courses.
The service was so incredibly slow. We waited 30 minutes from the time we ordered to get dessert. The food was okay . One meal had to be returned as the meat was subpar. The replacement meal was flavorless and chewy.
A major disappointment.
Zachery, waiter, was amazing. He recommended just the right dinner selection and cook preparation for my guest's steak. I had the salmon and it was delicious. Kudos to Zachery and Teca for a great night.
Good food, solid service, great pizza, in a loud and open space. Nothing great about the ambiance, but a friendly place to get a solid meal.
very good food and the service was very professional and pleasant.
As always, a wonderful dinner with friends. The veal parmigiana was excellent.
Food was excellent.! Really enjoyed our time there. Service and ambiance just perfect for our girlfriend get together .!
Loud. Some food was delicious, other food was okay.
Food was excellent. Service was a bit slow to clear plates.
Fantastic as usual! Delaware county's best Italian Restarant
I took my mother to lunch she is 92! She hasn’t stop talking about her lunch at Teca and how wonderful it was to be there
Met some friends for lunch at Teca. There was a great selection on the menu. One of my dining companions asked for a dish not on the menu and the kitchen complied without fuss. The food was quite good. We stayed for almost two hours and enjoyed good fellowship and conversation with only a minimum of interruptions from the wait staff (who were only attending to our needs). Overall, it was a very good experience. I would enjoy another lunch there in a heartbeat.
Consistently the best meatballs around. Our server Ester was attentive and kept our glasses full.
Food was excellent. Service was top notch. My one complaint was that there was a very noisy party that was cursing loudly and the staff did nothing about it. I would’ve expected in a nice place like this that they would not tolerate low class behavior. There were families there and we were all just kind of rolling our eyes at each other.
Pasta was cold and under cooked
The food was good but took forever. It doesn’t take 1.5 hours to make a salad and a chicken parm meal.
I understand you are busy on a Friday but maybe you need more kitchen staff.
Even if everything else is spot on (it wasn’t perfect but decent) the food taking so long ruins the experience.
Food is delicious and we could sit outside. Great place for a group
Food was very good, the staff were all very friendly, and overall was a very good experience.
Teca has become one of our go-to places. Excellent food and experience.
Always consistent and superb. Quality food, delicious menu, great atmosphere. Our absolute favorite. I highly recommend.
I ordered the special steak entrée which was described as being 'Prime.' I ordered it medium rare and it came out medium well. They took it back and replaced it but by the time they brought back my friend had finished her dinner. In addition, describing this steak as 'prime' was not accurate. I ended up eating only a few bites. It was very dry and rather tough. I have been to this restaurant before and it's really hit or miss. I was very disappointed and they did not offer to comp us on anything. Not sure I would ever go back.
Great food, great Service
The service was good. Our server also assisted in selection a wine that was suitable to her palate. Our TECA salad was almost a meal in itself. Lobster Ravioli was great and the lemon Ricotta Cheesecake was awesome. As we stated in Open Table that the occasion was our anniversary, the staff thanked us for choosing their restaurant to celebrate it and brought 2 glasses of Champagne.
We dined outside and the ambiance was wonderful. We checked out the inside before we left and feel that we would've enjoyed that setting also.
My husband and I celebrated our 12th anniversary this past Saturday at Teca.
We had a cocktail at the beautiful bar. Great bartenders! Good drinks.
We sat at a table for 2. Nick was our server. Very attentive. Our food was outstanding. Hubby had the mozzarella salad with prochute, he loved it.
I had seafood over linguine. It's in a red sauce on the menu, but the chef put it in a white sauce for me. Delicious. Hubby had the veal dish, also excellent!
Excellent across the board. Ambiance was quite casual but at the same time formal. Great combination. Food is just...see and taste for yourself. Bellisimo
Great service, food n location for our business dinner. Thanks
The food was delicious. We sat outside on a beautiful evening. It was noisy, even outside! The restaurant was busy (happy for them!)The service we got was okay but we’d go back for the food hoping service and noise level might be a bit better.
I always enjoy dining at Teca. The restaurant is wonderful, the food great and the wait staff the best around! As always, my friends and I enjoyed a wonderful lunch and great drinks. I usually join friends at Teca for birthdays and holidays...always on Thanksgiving...best meal ever! But if it is just a casual get together...Teca is always my first choice. So glad I found this restaurant. Number one with me.,
Best place in Philadelphia so far i have been too. My Fiancé loved it and it was the best anniversary so far we have had in awhile!! Recommend this place 1000 times over!!!
Food awful as well as overpriced. Outdoor seating was nice, waiter great.
