We only tried Italian-style dishes. The portions were huge but the food was not tasty. There are lots of Italian restaurants in this area, and you can definitely do much better than this. Maybe some of the non-Italian dishes are better?

Stopped in fairly late for dinner. Food was good waitress very good, pleasant and attentive. Received coupons for return visit. Plenty of parking outside plenty seating inside. Will return.

Proprietor was downright crazy. Dirty menus, place has gone downhill. Roaches. Avoid! There are many other better places to dine, and we used to go there all the time.

Tesara is not the greatest restaurant but it is always consistent. For the price you can not beat it. They have all the basic dishes and it is always good.
