It was back in August 2014 when we had a booking for dinner for 4 people. It was recommended to us as one of the best places to eat, so booking well ahead of time for a Saturday evening was essential. The staff were very welcoming, the menu was extensive with so much to choose from, we needed quite a... More

I booked Zi Teresa for Xmas lunch based upon its much vaunted reputation. Out of our party of 6 only one thought that the experience was good, and they are not regular restaurant goers. For the price the food was very disappointing indeed, even though the service was ok. Halibut was dry and tasteless, while the turkey looked like a... More

I have visited this establishment on several occasions, without complaint. Superb Italian food beautifully presented even spaghetti bolognese does not look like the accident that most restaurants produce. the whole menu is well balanced and the tiramisu is superb. I am so impressed that I have booked dinner for 12 people and know that the service will be 100 percent.

Friendly, efficient service and excellent food. Good atmosphere. Wide choice on the menu, with more fish than often found. I had the delicious veal with lemon and olives, my husband enjoyed plaice with lemon, asparagus and courgette. All the usual Italian desserts; we had tiramisu and limoncello creme, both very good. We will certainly be going again.

The food itself was fine, but not especially worth recommending, and I would say worthy of three stars. However a few lapses in service led to a poor experience overall. Drinks didn't arrive until after our starters were finished, and then only after prompting, with no apology given. Then I was given an incorrect main course, although at least this... More

We've never been to Zi Teresa before and we are very much looking forward to going again. It reminded us of restaurants we have been to in Northern Italy, which is no surprise as the owner is from near Verona. The services was very friendly, efficient without being intrusive. I chose the crab and mango starter which was very nice... More

It is a good quality of food and service that is accompanied by a human touch. There are some establishments that struggle to maintain a good level of service this is not one of them. The staff are friendly but efficient without going over the top with attentiveness which I personally find intrusive.

I went there on Friday 12th September, when I rung up to book they were very helpful on the phone, there where 12 of us in the end and our waiter was very chatty and helpful but it did take them a while to take our drinks and food order. I ordered the standard garlic bread that was as to... More

We've lived about 10 minutes from Zi Teresa for 10 months and always said we'd go, but its taken us until now to actually get round to it - but it was worth the wait. Right from ringing to book the table we knew this would be great. They are so friendly and welcoming. The waiters are entertaining and funny... More
