Teresa’s Italian Eatery
A perennial favorite among folks around the Middleton area, Teresa’s Italian Eatery whips up the sort of dishes an Italian Nonna would make—eggplant rollatini, stuffed shells, and chicken Parmesan. Family-sized trays are also available for select items, including those drool-worthy tomato-baked meatballs with mozzarella, whipped ricotta, and basil pesto.
