My husband and I went here on Valentine's day, 8 pm reservation. Allow me to preface by saying that we are discerning 5-star diners, and that I lived in Italy for 4.5 years, so eating at any Italian/Mediterranean restaurant is always a gamble of authenticity for me. We were seated in a lovely room, warmly decorated for soft romance. A... More

This restaurant is one of Fairfield County's best kept secrets! Located in a quiet section of Bridgeport, it offers beautifully prepared seafood and a reasonably priced and interesting wine list. Not in the mood for a big meal? Try the amazing Tapas selection. The owner is readily on hand to offer suggestions and personally make sure your evening was memorable.

I went to Teberna once when if first opened. I, for some reason, forgot about what great food they had until I went for lunch with a friend last week. We both had salads. Mine with beef and my friends with chicken. They were excellent. I can't wait to go back.

Every time I have been here, I am amazed at this gem in Bridgeport. Its rarely crowded, which is unfortunate because the food is exceptional as is the service and ambiance. The prices are high but you're paying for quality food, service, and setting. Love this place!

We just came back from dinner here. The food was categorically outstanding. We are both vegetarian, and we had plenty to eat (several small plates, goat cheese ravioli, etc.) Both the food and the service were categorically outstanding. We strongly recommend that one looks at the wine list - they have some delicious Spanish wines that are served by the... More

My second visit to this restaurant - not only is the food high quality and well prepared but the presentation is a work of art! The ambiance in the dining room is elegant and staff pleasant and accommodating.

We go to this restaurant about once every quarter. The food is always great and the wine list is reasonable. There never seems to be a lot of people but it's very clean and enjoyable. The waitstaff is quite attentive and they also pour a good drink. The prices are also reasonable. Worth a trip.

Come on guys. I can't believe this place is in Bridgeport. This is by far the best I have had in Connecticut. The stuffed mushrooms are to die for.my wife had tortallini stuffed with duck now who else would think of that. She was awed. I had sea bass with what they called green sauce. Don' quite know what that... More

This is now our favorite restaurant in Fairfield county. Food is very good and the owner and staff are always very friendly with excellent service. We often come in late (9 - 9:30) and they never have an issue. We have not tried everything because we have found a few tapas and meals that we love so much that we... More
