“Amazing Italian Food with Unique Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

The food here was absolutely delicious! They had everything you could want in an authentic Italian menu--the classics like a 7+ layer lasagna as well as unique creations like an apple caprese that was divine! The ambiance is romantic but would be ideal for a party as well. We met Teresa and her daughter, Nadia, who were both lovely and welcoming! When we make it back to Punta Mita, we will no doubt be dining here again!

“Amazing........”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Atmosphere and attention to detail was 5 star. Food was exceptional. Had a table of 10 and nothing could be faulted. A lovely way to spend our New Year's Eve with all our family from all over the world. Australia, San Francisco and Florida. Thank you for opening your home to us!

“No mas tacos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

This place was a great change of scenery. Yes I enjoy Mexican food, but after a week it was time for a change. The owners and staff were simply wonderful. Home style southern Italian food was decent taking into account that it is Mexico.

“Amazing Italian food in Mexico!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

My husband and I are staying at the St. Regis and asked the staff here for dining recommendations. When the concierge suggested Casa Teresa, my initial reaction was "Italian food in Mexico?" but after having dined there this evening, I am thrilled that we were fortunate enough to have eaten there. To say that the restaurant itself is charming is an understatement. The ambiance is delightful and Teresa and her family make it feel like home away from home. I ordered the lasagna (recommended to us by staff at the St. Regis) and it was incredible. Each morsel of the 15 (yes, 15!) think layers of pasta was simply irresistable. My husband ordered their famous Christmas dinner special (forgot the name) that was a combination of pastas baked together. For dessert, we ordered the brownie topped with ice-cream (also recommended by staff at the St. Regis and home-made by Teresa herself) and it disappeared within minutes. Teresa, her daughter and her son-in-law were all extremely warm people. And, you must check out all of the family photos near the entrance before you leave. Hands down, one of the best Italian meals we've ever had (possibly even THE best Italian meal we've had) and an absolute MUST if you're in Punta Mita.
