Had one of the best dinners ever in West Chester at Teca. The menu is very interesting and includes many healthy options for those who are gluten-free/grain free. The glasses of wine were nice and big which we alway appreciate. We were lucky to get a table for four by the window so we could do some people watching as... More

Teca was able to accommodate a Gluten free, Pescatarian, one who can not eat raw vegetables plus myself who is on a restricted diet for the moment. We shared the fried olives and the four cheese bruschetta appetizers. My wife had the seafood risotto, which was good but not great, I had the lobster ravioli which was very good, others... More

We ate here recently on a beautiful Saturday evening and were very disappointed. The tuna tartare was mushy, and consisted of ahi tuna, celery and sesame seed. The grilled calamari salad was doused in so much balsamic that the mixed baby greens had wilted. We decided to not order dinner based on our apps and I think we made the... More

The cheese from one salad was so big they halved it and i took home half. The linguine with seafood was great and huge portion! The branzino was fabulous! Jamison was a great... More

When the weather turns warm, there is no better place to grab a delicious bite and cocktail and sit outside, so good!

We came lured by an interesting menu, and a visually pleasant curb appeal. It was a bit crowded and noisy, but that may happen with a popular restaurant. Unfortunately, the food did not live up to expectations. A bruschetta was served on a slice of lightly toasted bread, limp and moist, rather than the traditional crisp and thick Italian bread....

We go to Teca once a week whether it's to see Billy G. at the small back bar or dinner with family and friends. Roberto aka Rob make sure the food is always good, which it is and Baba keeps the staff moving. We have NEVER had a bad meal. Happy Hour is a blast with all us locals.

Nice atmosphere, food was ok, yes....just ok, however it is overpriced for what you get. Couldn't afford a decent dinner so went with an overpriced, overcooked hamburger. Don't think I'll be going back

Great Italian food! My tower salad was great with fried tomato, mozzarella, basil and prosciutto. My husband's salad was lovely with pear and avocado. His linguini with all kinds of shellfish was very big and delicious and we brought half of it home. My Bronzino was tasty and was filleted for me . The ice cream was tasty but my... More
