Have been to this restaurant a few times, usually with a party of 8. Food has been OK. Last weekend I ordered several dinners to be taken out. When I got the order home (a 30 mile roundtrip) I discovered two of the dinners I ordered were missing. I called and was told by an indifferent young woman I could return for the additional dinners. I declined due to the distance. No apology, no offer of any consideration. First I was told I would need to bring the credit card to the restaurant to receive a credit for the missing food for which I had been charged. I protested and was told I would have to speak with the owner. When she returned to the call the woman implied the owner refused to talk with me but she would process the refund. The food we did get was mediocre at best. Seems the attention this restaurant has received from a prominent local TV restaurant show has gone to its head. I'll take my business and my money elsewhere.

I went to Teresa's to celebrate Mother's Day after seeing it on Phantom Gourmet. The food was very good. A bit pricey for a restaurant in Middleton, but nothing outrageous. It had a nice atmosphere, good for families. I probably wouldn't recommend it for a first date if you're looking for a romantic place. It's brighly lit and somewhat noisy.

The menu had good variety, something for everyone. The appetizers were good. The entrees were very good. I had the Penne Vodka (yum!). My sister had the Pollo Spinaci (good, but not as good as mine). Mom had the Filet Mignon special (cooked just right) with delicious mashed potatoes. Skipped dessert (way too full). Drink menu was great. Drinks were good. Our waitress was very nice and knowledgeable about the menu.

They had a weird reservation policy. They wouldn't let us make reservations for 3, only 4 or more. I found that odd. They told us if we came in before 6:30, we wouldn't have to wait. We ended up waiting for about 20 min. Overall, I'd recommend it.

I wish that we had taken the time to read the reviews here and therefore saved ourselves an hour of our lives and a frustrating experience. My husband and I just moved into Middleton a month ago and my friend who lives in the next town suggested we all go out to eat at Teresa's (shudder). Accordingly, she made a reservation for 7:45p. She and her husband arrived at 7:40, checked in with the very disinterested hostess who told them it would be "about 10-15 minutes." We arrived at 7:45 and given that it was Friday night and busy, were very understanding of the aforementioned delay. There were several other parties also waiting in the foyer and the bar area was full. Fifteen minutes became 30 minutes and once again the disinterested hostess stated that there were "three parties" that were finishing up. The manager (and I presume, owner) walked by and asked my friend, whom he recognized from prior visits, whether "they were treating us right" at which point she informed him of the wait having made a reservation. He shrugged and walked away. By forty-five minutes, every other party AND a party of two who arrived after us had been seated. Addressing the problem to the "hostess" yet again, we received a huffy sigh and a "well, we can't make people leave." Another co-hostess nodded in mopey assent and the two whispered malignantly at what they perceived to be our unwarranted affront. We openly discussed our other dining options in front of them, presenting an opportunity to make the situation right by offering us a beverage or a free appetizer as an apology for our long wait. Instead we got nothing but belligerent stares. Then we got smart and left, opting to enjoy more reasonably priced pub fare served cheerfully and expeditiously down the street. Now, having read the reviews on the food, I'm relieved that we didn't waste a penny (in addition to our time) at this dump. And apparently, we're not the first people to experience this incomprehensibly obnoxious and flagrantly dismissive treatment. Pretty stupid considering a good experience would have won our repeated business for many years to come. Now Teresa's is dead to me and I will spread the word.

P.S. This site requires me to provide a rating which is unfortunate since I feel even 1 star is too much

Pros: Never got to eat there

Cons: Overpriced, Uncaring, Obnoxious

My wife and I wanted to try out this restaraunt as a possible caterer for our annual Christmas party. So we went the other night and sat in the lounge side. It was cold and very noisy even though it was not crowded. We started with a Wedge salad that was okay, but had too much dressing. The real dissappointment came when our entrees arrived (before we finishe out salad). I had the Papa Veal and my wife had Veal Eggplant.
Both of the meals were swiming in a thick, overly sweet with odd spices tomato sauce. Both of our veal dishes were tough and dry. I asked for more plain pasta to see if it would help - it did not.
So we did not finish our meals and asked the waitress to ask the manager to come by. When he arrived he did not listen to any of our complaints, but just said he was the highest rated Italian eatery on the North Shore with top reviews by Phatom Gourmet and others.
Needless to say they need to come back for a reality check - DO NOT GO TO THIS RESTARAUNT!!!

Cons: Noisey; terrible food and management

DON'T GO HERE!!!!!
What an awful experience my family had ordering take-out from this restaurant. We ordered two pizzas and an appetizer. When I went to pick up the order they thought I only had ordered one pizza. Fine, mistakes happen. They then refused to make me another pizza because "it was Friday night, and they were too busy." However, I didn't want one pizza, I had ordered two pizzas!! I needed two pizzas to feed my family.

After begging to get a pizza made they said it would take 30 minutes to get my pizza because there were many other orders ahead of mine. You would think that if they had made a mistake they would have tried to rectify the situation and put the pizza I ordered almost 30 minutes before in right away, while my other pizza sat waiting.

The pizza I got wasn't even that good after the ordeal I went through. For the price we paid, you think it would have been a better pizza. Next time I'll go to Bertucci's, because even they were better.

My wife called to speak to the manager to share the lack of customer service I received at their establishment. She was put on hold for a few minutes before a young girl, the "manager" came on the line. It ended up not being the manager and then she was put on hold again. Finally, the real manager, or owner's wife, came on the line. Instead of apologizing for the experience we had, she kept saying, "but it was Friday night, but it was Friday night." There is no excuse for receiving poor customer service. I understand that it was a busy time, but she could have asked to speak to my wife the next day. No, instead she hangs up on my wife. I'm astonished what poor customer service this establishment has.

I was previously in the pizza business for 6 years, and that is no way to run a business. It doesn't matter what night it is, you should always try to accomodate all customers and listen to concerns to improve your business.

I would definitely recommend never going to Teresa's!!!

Teresa's boasts itself as a family restaurant, but my family found it just the opposite. As a celebration for my grandmother's 87th birthday, we decided to try Teresa's on a Friday afternoon at 430. When we arrived and told them we had a party of 11, they told us that they could not accommodate us. Mind you, they currently had two couples occupying two tables in their "spacious dining room that accommodates up to 95" (as stated on their website). After questioning their statement and pointing out the vast room left in the restaurant, the hostess finally called her manager who said the best they could do was put 8 of us at one table and 3 at another (we shouldn't have had to beg for a table). When we asked if they could push some tables together against the wall, she stated that they need to keep them open because they had reservations later (my Uncle saw on the sheet that the three reservations they had for that night weren't until 730, 2 hours after we would have been gone). Needless to say, we left immediately and had a wonderful meal at a restaurant down the street. I later learned on the website that they "require" reservations for 6 or more... Really? They want to turn away business when they are essentially empty? Poor policy and poor excuse. In 87 years, my grandparents have never been turned down at a restaurant, and they certainly never will for the rest of their lives, as none of us will waste our time at Teresa's again, an unprofessional and offensive business.

three of us went Saturday night I ordered Chicken Picatta - no capers - I don't think I got the right meal - wasn't lemony at all and had artichokes in it. My husband was still hungry after we ate - which never happens in Italian restaurants with him - I felt because the portions weren't as large as other places and the price isn't cheap a salad should definately be offered as part of your dinner - all three of us felt that way.

Food is very good and prices reasonable. If you live on the north shore, this is a must try! You will not be dissapointed and neither will your date.

This place is worth the trip. We all enjoyed our meals, and the service was fantastic. The owner Nick came over to our table a couple of times to ask how everything was. You could tell he was genuinely concerned with our dining experience. Our waitress, Alesha, was a doll. She was very responsive to all our requests. As far as the food goes, it's worth the trip. If you like veal, try the "Veal Papa", it was great. We would definitely go back. As a matter of fact, they'll see us in 3 weeks for the opening of their Martini Bar. Great job guys!

BTW Nick, the young Russian/Polish hostess was awesome. She's the one that suggested the "Veal Papa". Evidently, it is her father's favorite.

Thanks Steven

We ate there and loved the food. We had pizza, a wonderful chicken pasta dish ,dessert and enjoyed every bite! Everything was fresh and the staff was friendly. The owner was very kind and came over to our table to make sure we were enjoying our meal. I will be back!

SOO....i used to work there/eat there...i sum it up below

The whole organization stinks of a corrupt family business. They have a LOUSY bartender who is the daughter of the owner, the food is probably B- at best, and the majority of the people there can?t smile. They just can?t?the place is horrible. This past Saturday (June 28) was my birthday, and after asking the manager to get it off and asking every waiter I could to get the night off I had to unfortunately go in and work. That didn?t bother me really, so I went in, smiled, and did an excellent job waiting the few tables I had. At the end of the night the bartender informed me that they were letting me go. She said ?Chad you don?t know the menu, there were a lot of complaints, and you yell out to the cooks. We have a 2 week trial period here and unfortunately it?s just not going to work out here.?

I really don?t know what kinds of complaints they had. I was making 20-25% tips on the few tables I had, and as for yelling out to the cooks or not knowing the menu I think that excuse is a bunch of bologna. The worst thing about it is, is that they fired me on my birthday. Why couldn?t they just call me the next morning and let me know they weren?t going to need me. This place really doesn?t care about people?s feelings and the food is really just average at best. It?s overpriced and the people that work there aren?t nice. I highly recommend not to go there when you could just go to Brutole right on the rte 114, rte 1 exchange.

Teresa?s stinks, don?t go there.
