My wife and I met her cousin and aunt at Tessara's for a special occasion dinner on October 7, 2014. We were disappointed. Two of us ordered soup as the appetizer. My wife had the pasta fagioli which was not thick enough and just OK. I had the chicken soup. The pasta in the soup was very mushy - overall... More

Even a small diner is better than this horrible experience . Party of four order was fried calamari shatobrian for two and seafood mixed plate. Served with fruits !! What the heck. Slays of unpeeled orange green apple and cantaloupe on the same plate of grilled filemignon and bullion melted in cold water. No salt pepper or anything to taste... More

Parking in the back, good food and good service, but those owners need to be a bit more friendly, smile sometimes guys, it will make us feel more welcome.

We arrived early and were seated promptly at a requested booth. The waitress was very efficient but slightly cold trying to be professional but still very good. The food was exceptional. She had the Cajun salmon which she loved and I had the chicken parmigiana which was the best. The prices were average.

Had dinner at Tessara Restaurant last Thursday evening. This is a monthly gathering of about 10 men. Three of us ordered Chicken Cacciatore. The chicken was prepared in a white wine sauce but you could hardly taste the sauce which was blah, and served over linguine pasta. The chicken was actually tough, very unusual for cacciatore which tends to soften... More

I was also a guest at that Christening. The children were never served their meals. They ended up eating from the appetizer platter. When the dinner buffet was served, the chicken was fine, but the beef was well done and served without any gravy. As a result, it was dry. Although I was finished with my dinner, many others at...

Was a guest at a Christening Party here last Sunday. The room was rented from 1:00-5:00 PM. There was supposed to be an appetizer buffet and then the regular buffet and of course dessert and coffee. The appetizer buffet started out right but then they rushed everything else. The waiters literally came around with the coffee while we were eating... More

Love the place-- Cracker Chicken is amazing. Service always on point. Get a booth and it feels like a private dining experience.

Visited last night for Father's Day. Upon arrival, (with no reservations) was greeted promptly and seated almost immediately! Wow. Waitress came right over with menus and took drink order. The short of it is....service was prompt, atmosphere was quite and pleasant, food was great, as always. Price was fair. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

We were on the road on Mother's Day and looking for somewhere to eat on our way home. We passed by Tessara's and decided to go back there based upon the reviews. We got a seat right away, the server was wonderful and the food outstanding. However. When it came to the pause between our salads and the food, it... More
