Highs: Setting and ambiance Wine selection Service Lows: Some food misses the mark Smaller menu Pro Tip: They have a good cash pay discount! So bring cash to pay! But make sure you bring Peso's as their exchange rate they give you for USD isn't attractive. The setting is awesome. Very romantic but not stuffy. Also great for large families.... More

Driving down the alley one wonders if they made a wrong turn? Then you enter Casa Teresa and the warmth of Teresa, Nadia, and Martin make you feel at home. The beautiful courtyard takes you back to Italy and the wonderful meals you had there. Hope Timpano is on the menu for it is the best I have had anywhere... More

So let me start by saying, if you are walking in town you would literally not even think about walking down the street where Casa Teresa is located! Its now dangerous, but its not exactly upscale either! Once inside, welcome to Italia!, Beautiful outdoor patio. Service is fantastico, and so is the food. Top notch Negronis and the food is...

We were greeted by the owner and her daughter. Dynamic and warm personalities. The waiters were engaging and added a bit of humor to the repertoire of service and food. The Italian fare was delicious and will go back again when we return to Punta Mita!

Outdoor dining. Terrific Food and Service by the "Family". I personally prefer any of their homemade Pasta dishes especially after eating so much Seafood at the Four Seasons. A must-stop every trip to Punta de Mita. Make a reservation.

The owner made the meal for us, she was wonderful! The margaritas were great and the food was 'good' overall. The flat bread starter was delish!

We highly recommend you visit this place- but they are not open in down season so double check before going. We were so excited when saw our food I forgot to take pics but the lasagna is delicious and the... More

Once you find Teresa's, you will be so glad you did. It is tucked back on an unassuming street and most have no idea it is even there. When you step inside, it is as if you have emerged in Italy. The courtyard, open air seating is lovely, and when it is dark, it is truly magical in the candlelight.... More

This was a second time at Casa Teresa, and as per a previous experience, did not disappoint! It is such a nice change of pace from the typical cuisine from the area. Having had amazing Italian meals in Italy, this is the real deal. The food is delicious. Teresa and her staff, including her daughter and son in law, are... More
