Great Wine Selection

Tria has one of the best wine selections in the city and some great bites at the bar. Try the sandwiches.

Great spot to stop in for a glass of wine and some tapas. I usually get one of the bruschettas. The service is always friendly also.

During our visit to Philly we tried Tria based on a friend's recommendation. We were not disdapinted, we arrived on a Sunday afternoon during Tria ' Sunday special called Sunday school where they offer 1 interesting wime, 1 cheese and 1 kind of beer at discounted prices with stories behind each item. We ordered the white burgundy wine for $4... More

This is a wine bar that offers very tasty appetizer portion food. They also have salads, including a great smoked duck breast salad over spinach that was really delicious! Nice selection of wine by the glass. Craft beers too. Good, friendly service and very fair prices.

I was surprised by lots of wonderful little things about this small cafe. It's charming and cozy, and it has some amazing cheeses. You must get the cheese board with at least two different cheeses. The servers really know and care about the cheeses -- and the wines and beers, as well. We had some other "snacks" (small plates) as... More

Philadelphia has so many wonderful places to eat and drink these days. Tria offers both. The beer menu alone is intriguing, dividing offerings into "invigorating," "friendly," "profound," and "extreme." We started with bruschetta, two slices of crisp French bread on a plate to share. We loved the Apple Tree Goat Cheese with Basil Pesto. The Pistachio Ricotta with lavender honey... More

We stopped here for happy hour drinks and snacks and were able to sit outside to enjoy the weather, people watching and some amazing treats. The wine list is impressive - and there are plenty of small plates to try to whet your appetite before dinner. I do not know WHAT they do with the almonds, but get those! They... More

Staff are very knowledgeable about the cheese and will recommend both wine and cheeses. Enjoyed a wonderful fresh salad after the cheese. Staff very courteous and left us alone to enjoy. Excellent.

This small cafe has a great wine list, interesting cheeses and inventive appetizers. We shared the Gouda and beet appetizer, it was divine. Also shared the cavatelli and another pasta "small plate", they were both good sized portions. Food was served hot ( pet peeve of mine, I dislike warm food), fresh, bursting with flavors. Service was very attentive and... More
