FABULOUS "REAL" ITALIAN CUISINE!

Italian food is very controversy. Some people like it one way, and other's another. It varies from chef to chef, restaurant to restaurant and price to price. However, Tre Scalini is the best!. It is a superb, true Italian specialty restaurant. The food is mouth watering, delicious and always... read more

Tre scalini was recommended by my sister who could not stop praising the eggplant appetizer. And she was right...the dish was indeed delicious. Unfortunately, it set our expectations higher and alas, we were disappointed. I had the veal Arturo named after the chef and it was ok. Two small portions of veal medallions flanked by what seemed like a whole... More

We have been going here for many years. The service is always excellent, and the food delicious. My wife always orders the filet mignon special. While usually done perfectly (she likes medium well), on one occasion it was very underdone. She had barely cut into it when the waitress noticed and said "That's not medium well" and took it back...

Six of us visited Tre Scalini on a Saturday night for dinner in October. I am sad to report that overall we were disappointed. Tre Scalini was once a grande dame of the New Haven culinary scene. This is chronicled by the accolades that adorn the entry walls. Sadly, I fear that they now simply serve as a reminder of... More

After our favorite restaurant closed down, we were on a search for a special occasion restaurant and Tre Scalini is one of those. Impeccable service, great food on a corner in the famed Italian section of New Haven. We have been here on our anniversary 2 years in a row and have loved it each time.

A stereotypical Valentine's day date location. We ate on a Monday night, so it was not crowded; however, I would expect a line on the weekends. The atmosphere was sophisticated, and the wait staff slightly above average. The food was exceptional. They have standard fair which is above average, but the excellent dishes are their specials and menu items which... More
