Food was top notch, pasta was cooked perfectly and the sauces just right. Appetizer of calamari and squid was fresh and tender. Well worth a try and reasonably priced.

Excellent presentation of the food and pretty tasty dishes all around. Portions left us a bit hungry--not what you'd expect for $20 entrees. They also short changed us on the wine. For 9-12 bucks a glass, could you fill it at least half way please?...More

I tried a special consisting of Cavatappi, grilled Chicken and a Cream Pesto sauce. My wife had a Pizza and my Son tried the Ravioli. All three dishes were impressive!

The menu had lots of interesting items on it, but of course my children wanted something simple. They told us they could pretty much make just about anything, and accommodated my children's requests. Nice wine list, great food. Outdoor seating too. Lovely location.

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.

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....More

Simple Italian inspired fare in a neighborhood trattoria style atmosphere in Princeton's Palmer Square. Fresh, local ingredients, seasonal pasta dishes, pizzette and a predominantly regional Italian wine list.
