Walked over from the Alexander Inn for a snack and nightcap and enjoyed it so much. Had intended to get over to Tria for our entire stay and am glad we did! Wine selection is extensive, beers and ciders are aweome. Opted to stay on the appetizer side, and they were superb. Prices are VERY fair. Loved this place!

We ate dinner here before a show at the Academy of Music last night. Thanks to the great reviews on here we made a good choice. There is outside seating with heaters which was full. But without a reservation and a full house we were still seated at a window right away. The ambience is dark, candle lit,very nice. The... More

Simply put - if you like/love good service, great beer, nice wine, cheese, Italian meats, creative and fresh small plate appetizers, sandwiches and salads, then this is the place. Highly recommend for lunch, late afternoon or early happy hour. Always a personal go-to.

We go here a lot just for a nightcap or after work. The wine and beer lists are extensive and organized in a fun way--hearty reds, hoppy beers etc. The food menu is mostly snacks, but the cooks who work in an open kitchen care so much about the food, they are really craftsmen. They are small plates. I like... More

Delicious, eclectic food menu, and an extensive wine and beer list. Staff was friendly and helpful in picking out food to pair with wine selections. Atmosphere is a little loud (music and patrons), - it wasn't an issue for me, but I could see it being too loud for some. Great place to dine solo (like me!) or meet up... More

What a gem of a little place! Very interesting menu, with small plates, cheeses, and more. The wine and beer list is great. Nick knows his wine, and was so much fun to talk with. Very popular for outside tables, but we loved the front table in the window. They are open noon til late. Be sure to go for... More
