Growing up in the suburbs of Havertown, PA Roberto is the first generation of Italian parents. From the time he was born, he was fortunate enough to spend summers in the beach town of Lignano in the coastal region of Friuli, Italy. Roberto was raised in the restaurant business by spending his days closely with his father, Alberto. After attending St.Joseph’s and graduating with a food marketing degree he began his reign as the proprietor of Teca West Chester.
For the last decade, he has cultivated the original concept of Teca into what you see today. Roberto is now able to carry on that vision, with Teca Newtown Square. His tremendous passion for wine has earned him a reputation for developing one of the best wine lists in the area. Roberto welcomes and loves the opportunity to speak to any guest (in 3 different languages) about their dining experience, but he especially loves sharing his wine knowledge.
Alberto Guadagnini, successful restaurateur in the Delaware Valley for many years partnered with his son Roberto in 2002 and together they developed the concept of Teca. They brought the old-world Italian dining experience to the new world upscale-casual dining scene. It is a perfect mix of both worlds, which creates the very successful concept that Teca is today.
When not in the U.S., Alberto keeps focus on his Tuscan Winery & Villa, Casali
