Overall average but strong pluses and minuses

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... read 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

I was travelling and found this gem online. I have no idea what restaurant the people who gave mediocre reviews were at, this was great Italian food. My only regret was that I was too late, and the Osso Buco was sold out. They had a veal specialty that made up for that though.

My husband and I had dinner last Saturday and I have to say this was one of our favorite meals here! It was just the two of us and we sat at the bar in the main dining room. We started the dinner with two perfectly made Martinis and a Smoked Salmon Bruchetta appetizer that was wonderful. Each of our... More

I have been going to Tre Piani for dinner on Saturdays for over a year now and in all of that time I have yet to be disappointed in the quality and variety of the food. One of the dishes in particular, the pork bracchiole, made me think of the same dish my Italian mother used to make. I generally... More
