A great little Italian restaurant hidden away from the main street. The pizza is very good as is the pasta.

We were a big group but they got us in pretty much much at the last minute. There is nothing really wrong with the food here but the whole place has this film of grease on the floors and tables, in face everywhere. Everything was a little tacky and just didn't have a nice feel to it. As I say... More

Nice little spot in the heart of Princeton, across from the University. Very nice serving staff and attentive to the table. Small menu with a nice mix of options. We both ordered the Bestecca (steak) sandwich. Unfortunately, both sandwiches were a little tough to be eaten by hand. The sandwich had nice flavor to it, but was easier to remove... More

Excellent food and service. Take time to review the menu before ordering. All dishes were evidently prepared with the freshest produce. Salad and pasta dishes were wonderful. Our server was very attentive and the delivery of food was timely. Tables are arranged comfortably and the atmosphere is lovely. I recommend making a reservation. The restaurant gets very busy.

Make reservations because this is a popular restaurant. That being said, even though it was packed, our service was excellent, as was the food. The seafood entrees were fresh and delicious and so were the salads. We also tried a pasta dish and a pizza, all good. For appetizers, their meatball app was excellent, three of the six of us...

For lunch or for dinner Teresa's Cafe is a fabulous place to go in Princeton. They prepare delicious pastas, salads, and a variety of brick-oven pizzas. Be sure not to pass up the bread basket served with wonderful herbed olive oil - it is a treat. Dessert? their bread pudings are divine! Dinner reservations are recommended, especially on the weekends.

This is a great choice for a nice dinner or date- the food is delicious, the wine is excellent (try the montepulciano!), and the atmosphere is fun and cozy. There is outdoor seating tucked away from the road, which is a lovely option for summertime. Be aware that the prices are high- think $18 for pasta (hence the 4 stars... More

A nice local, unpretentious Italian eatery. It's a good place for a quality pie if you're tired of Papa John's, Domino's and the like.
