What US expects from Italy

Nice Restaurant with decent Food. Does it resemble anything in Italy except the name and the (really great) Merlot, no, but this should Not matter.

Tre Piani occupies a beautiful open 3 floor space hidden away in an upscale shopping complex. We've been there twice using a groupon. All the dishes have been beautifully presented & very flavorful. The pine nut encrusted scallops were excellent.

Christmas eve dinner with family. I was dubious about making a reservation here given all the negative reviews on atmosphere and server issues. I'm happy to say none of those fears were realized. Started with calamari and meatball appetizers. The meatballs were so tender and flavorful served with some ricotta and marinara. The calamari was just average. Tiny rings that... More

Met up with an old friend for dinner. It's in the Forrestral Village (sp?) area of Princeton, which is an area with shops and restaurants. There's a separate bar area called Tre Bar which is small but seemed popular (I walked in by mistake). The restaurant is upstairs but also has a bar. Ordered the Swordfish with spinach and risotto.... More

Visited twice this November. The staff was pleasant and quick. When crowded, the manager came to the rescue to help his staff. Have eaten at the ground floor: Well lighted with very high ceiling, and good soundproofing. The food was Italian: the kind you eat in Italy, not the pizza. It was excellent.

Since our last visit in May, we were unpleasantly surprised to find out that the restaurant's quality (quite questionable in the first place) has dwindled down. We have repeatedly asked the server to prepare out tuna rare, and he was very attentive noting our request. When the tuna arrived, the server informed us that he apologized but the tuna wasn't...

This is a truly beautiful restaurant in a wonderful setting. Soft warm lighting inside, shiny wood and very attractive outdoor seating. Wait staff were very professional and helpful. Nice variety in food choices and attractive presentation.

We dined at Tre Piani for our 22nd year wedding Anniversary, the food was great, good selection of wine, and the deserts were amazing, particularly the cannoli, a must try. Great service, our waiter was great, and we found a coupon on-line from groupon.com, icing on the cake, the manager was accommodating, and the dining experience overall was perfect for... More
