I finally found a place where food is fresh, outstanding and indisputable. If you love pasta Teodora is your place. The pasta is home made! I also had a couple of salads and they were really yummy!! The service was great and for once the staff is 100% ITALIAN!!

I am from Ravenna Italy. The Fritto Misto is as good as one would get in Cesenatico. The Passastelli is almost as good as my Nonna used to make (the only change..a little less breadcrumbs, a little more Grana Padano). The Tagliatelle were superb.\r
This is my third time there over the past 3 years. I never announce myself to the staff as from Ravenna...I just let the food come.\r
Finally, I NEVER leave these reviews. This is the second ever in my life. Now you know how ...view morestrongly I feel on this place.view less
I didn't think there were any good restaurants near Bloomingdales and I still don't think there are any. However, Teodora isn't terrible. I felt like I had to have the lasagne since so many people had written stellar reviews of it. I was disappointed. It was a massive serving size, but was mushy. There was no texture to it, no substance. There wasn't that stringy cheese feel when you pull the fork away. My friend had the pasta special which turned out to be quite good. Homemade...view more pasta, with tomato sauce, ricotta cheese, and basil. Overall the place wasn't bad, but I won't be there again.view less
I am Italian and I am very picky when it's about food but, this time I had to recognize ""IT""S REAL ITALIAN FOOD"". Not cheesy or creamy, fake over covering taste. The menu offers different type of meal between pasta, meat, fish. I tried the artichoke salad and the carpaccio and they were sublime. My friend had the crostacei pasta and we also shared the vitello tonnato. WOW! Finally, the italian cheese cake, to die for!!\r
The service was great and the people friendly. A+
Can't say anything else best pasta in NYC, I will recomend you the bolognese, fazzoleto di ricotta e spinacci, Crostacei, humm gnocci. Excellent salads, and the prices compared to some other italian restaurant that I have been are very competitive.
I ate here this past weekend with my girlfriend for an anniversary. It was Saturday night and the place was quiet and romatic. Appreciated the host's suggestion to sit in front as there seemed to be big parties upstairs and in the back. The front was quiet and dimly lit with mostly candles and soft lighting. Excellent mood for an anniversary. We had the fried artichoke appetizer which was different and delicious. I'm not a big vegitable eater but this was delicious. It believe i...view moret was pan fried (not breaded and deep fried) and lightly salted. My girlfriend had gnocchi and I had rack-of-lamb which were both excellent. Cocktails were expensive ($11 Beam and coke). A few minor negatives with the service. The handle was broken on my steak knife and we got dessert menus instead of the check which took a long time. Other than that I had a good experience and I plan to go back.view less
I went here for a work lunch and was very surprised by the great food. The atmosphere is similar to eating at your Grandma's, but the food is the reason to keep going. Try the lasagna. It's the best thing on the menu. I will be going back for sure.
