“Housemade Breads, Gravy and Pasta.....& Great Signature Sandwich!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

The fact that Trevi makes/bakes all thier own bread, make their gravy (tomato) and makes all thier pasta in house, was a worth a stop. They bring you a warm loaf of fresh chewy housemade Italian bread with butter and seasoned olive oil before your meal too.

We went for lunch and in the mood for a sandwich. Standard Italian fare with local Crab/Seafood cuisine was the gist throughout. Nothing excited me on the Sandwich menu except the "Ernesto House Sandwich", made with prosciutto, mozzarella cheese, thick-sliced sharp provolone cheese and salami topped with roasted red pepper, lettuce, tomatoes and spices $8.99. Excellent choice! The roll is grill-toasted and inverted to build the sandwich. Definitely what I would have again. Next time I'll check out their Italian dishes with the Trevi pastas and gravy. My friend ordered the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich (real chicken....not some mystery slivers) and pretty hefty. Either sandwich was enough to share but that didn't happen.

Lunch was not very busy at noon on a Thursday, and the service was adequate, polite but a bit scarce. Overall, a very good experience.

“Good italian at a good price. Great variety and portions!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant is not fancy but nice for families. They always have good food and nice portions..from appetizers to entrees. Staff is very attentive and friendly. Went during a peak busy time and an offpeak time with no issues.

“Surprisingly good and reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

My wife and stopped in on the way home from the beach. We had been looking for a place to eat that wasn't a chain and decided to try Trevi. First, our service was excellent. The waiter was attentive and very helpful. the food was very good. We had delicious toasted bread with olive oil, and split a tomato mozzarella salad and an Italian Stromboli. Both were delicious. The salad was fresh and crisp, and the tomatoes were fresh and delicious. Together they were plenty of food for both of us. We added a bottle of Chianti and the entire check was less than $35. It's located just a couple of miles off of route 1 so it's a convenient on the way to or from the beaches.

This place is a little noisey but if you enjoy seafood with pasta, I highly recommend trying this restaurant. Save room for dessert. Their raspberry cheesecake is AWESOME.

“Great Italian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

I was very pleasantly surprised to find such a fine Italian restaurant south for the canal. Pizza is great. Every dish I have tried has been cooked perfectly. We go here about once a week and have never had a bad meal. Service is great as is the atmosphere and decor. Prices are surprsingly affordable. I highly recommend this restaurant.
