This is by far my FAVORITE place to grab a drink and great food in the city! The little bites are so tasteful and the wine selection is perfect. The servers are so knowledgeable as well. The fact that they now serve beer too and have Sunday School makes it my go to place to go and send my friends... More

We stopped here for a quick bite before an evening at the Philadelphia Wine School, which is just up the street. The grilled octopus (an easy dish to get wrong) was perfect. As good as any I've had in Italy, right by the water. We also had flatbreads. I had the duck confit, which was very good, but perhaps a... More

Stopped in for lunch and service was perfect and lunches prepared in no time. Salmon salad and turkey sandwiches were great.

My husband and I love coming here for a light afternoon lunch and drinks--particularly the Washington Square location. Wonderful laid back atmosphere with a diverse menu of little bites, salads (the fig and Gorgonzola is delicious), and bruschetta (we enjoyed the goat cheese pesto and the caramelized onion and feta). Nice selection of drinks--something for every palate--unique beer, wine and... More

I had heard great things about this place and we were excited to check it out. Wow, the service was horrible and the GM was such a jerk. The beer on their website, that was supposed to be just tapped, was no longer available. Such a let down :(

I am not a cheese lover. I know nothing about cheese so I was less than thrilled to try Tria. I'm glad my friends forced it on me cause... WOW. The egg toast is mandatory. Def give Tria a try!

Tiny place so sitting is tight...,best seats are at bar where you can easily taste wines and enjoy small plates.

My sister and I had a great glass of Spanish Sparkling with some awesome appetizers. I would recommend this place if you want an appetizer and a good glass of wine.

A great menu, friendly staff, fair prices. Pity they don't take bookings. But it was very much worth waiting for a table. PS: one little shortcoming. They sell great beers. One is a ' la Trappe' from the Koningshoeve Abby near Tilburg Netherlands. It ' hurts ' -being Dutch- that this beer is on the menu as 'from just outside... More
