“Little gem”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

I decided to try Zi Teresa - which turned out to be an excellent decision. Service was friendly and very prompt. Decor is very pleasant, with appropriate music playing in the background - not too loud! The bill was very reasonable, even with service charge. I thoroughly suggest you come here - and come hungry!

“Great Italian restaurant in Beckenham”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

Having read the positive reviews on this site I wanted to give Zi'Teresa a try, and was not disappointed. Service was friendly and prompt, with the starter arriving quickly. That starter was the Polpettine Diavola - delicious meatballs with pesto, mozzarella and a tomato sauce - though the tomato sauce was not as spicy as suggested by the name of the dish. As a main I had the Filetto dello Chef - filet steak with a small salad of rocket and spinach drizzled with balsamic and olive oil, served with vegetables. The veg was OK, if a little soft, but the steak was superb and the simplicity of the leaves with the dressing really enhanced it. Fantastic. I followed that with the cheese board, which did not suffer from being a fruit basket disguised as a cheese plate - 4 pieces of very nice cheese with a few grapes and lettuce. I had the Montepulciano (red) with all courses, and it went very well indeed. Finally a very good espresso to finish. Decor is nice and the overall experience definitely to be repeated. Price was medium (my main was the most expensive meat dish) and well worth the cost. Criticism? None other than a little slowness in service towards the end, but the restaurant was pretty busy, with some large parties, and I was dining alone. Thoroughly recommended - I think it would be particularly good for a party of a few people.

“A new local find”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

We decided to try a restaurant that we had not been in previously, so we went to Zi Teresa. Wow, what a surprise. On entering we were immediately aware of the lovely decor and the comfortable surroundings. We were greeted warmly and we choose the window seat. The staff were very professional and friendly, the menu was varied and there were specials available. The food was very good, however, a little on the expensive side. It was a very enjoyable evening and the facilities are worth a visit. We will return.

“Fantastic homely atmosphere with great food and amazing service.”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

We held our wedding reception here on the 23rd December and I can honestly say it was an amazing evening. Our sincere thanks to Doriano and his team for a truly wonderful time. From the initial planning visits to the evening itself nothing was too much trouble. I would not hesitate in recommending this restaurant and I can promise you we will be returning time after time. The only negative was that it was over all too soon. Must also say how pretty the venue was and exquisitely clean. Thank you to you all for making our evening so very special. We will be back very soon!
Carolyn and John.
