“Italy in Mexico! AMAZING food”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

My husband and I ate at Casa Teresa while on our honeymoon and it was amazing. It's hard to believe you are in Mexico while dining here. The courtyard atmosphere is so charming and idelic. The service was also very good and personal.

My husband ordered the 15-layer lasagna. There are no words. The pasta was soft; probably the best we've ever had and the flavor of the sauce was also delicious. I ordered the shrimp which was also amazing.

I saw the other comments regarding price and disagree. The price was very fair. Get over it, people...you are on vacation!

I highly recommend this restaurant while in Punta Mita!

“Nice Atmosphere & Food But Be Prepared to Pay Serious $$”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

We decided to go to Casa Teresa last minute and found, like the other reviewers stated, good food and an enchanted atmosphere. What we weren't prepared for was the price. With no menu posted outside, we really didn't know what we were getting ourselves into until we sat down. What we found were simple pasta dishes all in the 250 - 350 Pesos range ( around $20 to $30 US). Since out party consisted of 2 adults and 4 children, we figured that would do something when the kids ordered simple pasta dishes, and the bill would balance out. That was a bad assumption. When the bill came, it ended up being close to $300 US (that did include wine in all fairness). That even included charges for "flat" water which wasn't the case in other restaurants. That was about 50% more than what we paid at places like Si Senor and those places served mostly seafood. It very felt excessive and this comes after a week of paying St. Regis prices. Be prepared to pay if you want to go.

good morning

thank you so much for visiting our home and am happy to hear your enjoyed the atmosphere and our cuisine ....One of our greatest challenges in mexico is the purchasing and obtaining high quality imported foods.....unfortunately the cost of cold pressed olive oils , reggiano parmigiano. italian San Marzano tomatoes and high protein flours are acquired at a premium cost . these items are priced higher than seafood which is a local staple... From the opening of dinner specialty bread focaccia served with olive oil ( complementary ) to the hand made pastas we are passionate to share with others in serving authentic ltalian cuisine ..
in saying this unless they are children that eat adult portions our childrens pasta is 150peso( 12usd ) .. please send me a private message so i can make sure your bill was in order .. again thanks for visiting and sharing our paradise of Punta Mita

“Did not dissapoint”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We heard much about the food and service at Teresa's, and it did not disappoint. Location is a little odd, but when you enter their home, all that goes away. Eclectic building/décor, but ultimately a very cool place! Very impressed with the food and service!

“Believe the reviews!”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

We had an incredible diner at Casa Teresa. You walk in from a dusty street to a wonderful interior courtyard where you are treated to a fantastic Italian dinner. All of the pastas were homemade and my wife had the Timpano which she raved about. The owner came over and explained that it was on the menu at the request of another diner. It is a special baked pasta dish that is served like a pie. I had the eggplant parm and it was awesome. Make sure you put this on your list of places to dine while in Punta Mita.

“Wow!”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

What a wonderful experience! From our arrival in the intimate "living room," to the extraordinary private courtyard, our experience at Casa Teresa was wonderful in everyway. I was offered gluten free options, which I had hoped for but did not expect; just wish that there was a gluten free bread. The beet and yam starter had fabulous flavors as did the sun-dried tomatoe and goat cheese sauce on my gluten free pasta. I would return in a heartbeat!
