Great Food and Attentive Staff

We enjoyed our evening at Tre Piani. Their wine list is pretty interesting with lots of choices in different price ranges. We enjoyed a red Italian import with our meal. I tasted their Calamari Fritti appetizer and had the Osso Buco and Risotto. Delicious! The restaurant has a modern open... read more

This restaurant serves as my quick vacation to Europe. The food is delicious and authentic, with fresh ingredients of the season and a menu that is updated every few months. Jim Weaver, the owner, travels to Italy and Spain and brings back recipes inspired by the latest cuisine there. He purchases fresh produce and meats from nearby farms and makes... More

We had a wonderful experience. The service was great and welcoming. We liked the small and full portion options on the pasta dishes. We had the tuna tartare and a small portion pasta dish, beef tips in cream sauce over pasta to start For our entrees we got the baked eggplant Parmesan and hanger steak with arugula and the chicken...

I am sorry I have not shared this story earlier: I went to Tre Piani with my wife and son for a belated mother's day. Let's just say, the food was great, the venue was great and the atmosphere was great. But I really want to share this inspiring story of my Tre Piani experience: My son is 12 and... More

This is a physically attractive restaurant--bright, not excessively crowded tables and outdoor seating. The staff are very pleasant. Several of the dishes are quite good--even of gourmet quality. But other dishes are not at all good--even some vegetables, such as kale with garlic and oil, which was tough and tasteless. We went to dinner with friends and sat down at... More

We had eaten there a number of years ago and thought it was usually fairly good. We ate there last Sunday and were very disappointed. The restaurant was fairly empty - perhaps four tables in use, but it took a while to get our order in. For starters I ordered the Egg-less Caesar salad which was less a lot of... More

My husband and I had a groupon, so decided to check out Tre Piani. We split an appetizer and each had an entree. My husband also had a glass of wine. The glass was $9, a bit expensive for the wine that he had. We started with the tuna tartar. It was a bit mushy, and I thought it was... More

I was here for a business dinner of roughly 35 people, so we had a limited menu to choose from. I must say, I was greatly pleased by the selection of wines by the glass. However, the food was just "okay". The first course was an arugula salad, which was good, but nothing special. It was the entrees that underwhelmed... More

The interior of the restaurant is grand. Open spaces between tables. Menu is not extensive. I have lobster and spinach ravioli. It was very bland and amount of lobster was very little.

The restaurant itself was lovely. When we arrived, the host was very unwelcoming and we almost left. We stayed because I had planned to bring my family there for Easter brunch and wanted to try the food. The food was good but nothing special and it was overpriced.The homemade ravioli was mediocre. The bartender in the downstairs lounge was rude... More
