Had a great dinner with my wife. Food was good and the service was good. It was also within walking distance of the Hyatt Place.

I thought the food was quite delicious and the service was fine. I ordered the Crumbed Eggplant, followed by the Primavera Pasta and finished my meal with a scrumptious Pecan Pie with Icecream for dessert. No complaints from me or my party of my four!

My husband and I ate at Tre Scalini with three friends. The food was adequate. The server asked me, as an offhand comment, would we like bread? I said that would be nice. He brought us burned bread in a bread basket. We had asked for separate bills for each couple. The server brought one combined bill and when we... More

A bit on the pricey side for what you get, but the food was good. Service was a bit spotty. Standard Italian fare with no surprises.

We went looking for another restaurant but couldn't find it so we wandered in here. The menu isn't all that big but food is pretty good. We opted for Lasagna and Spaghetti Bolognese. Both were pretty good. Strange pricing on Spaghetti Putanesca (usually the cheapest) but here one of the most expensive ($24). Arancini appetizer was good. Didn't try any... More

If you want to have a romantic atmosphere with a variety of soups, and choices, this is the place for Italian. Not too expensive, but with valet parking, and pretty atmosphere. They manage to please me since I wanted something different from the menu. The people are really nice.

I've been visiting Panama City on October and meet up with old friend,so we decide to go out to have a few drinks and a good meal. After all, a good Italian restaurant was a choice that we make.

We went for dinner. Seafood pasta was ok but not exciting. Place is significantly overpriced. 20 USD for a small plate of pasta plus taxes & tip and 5 USD for a coke. No bread or something similar to start with. Service was mediocre even though place was empty. Very poor value for money.

I reviewed Tre Scalini in 2012 and have been back since. Yesterday I am sad to say for the last time. Maybe I have changed not them but the value no longer seemed there. $17.00 for a bowl of pasta with a little chicken, some olive oil and basil just seemed not right. The food was ok but for that...
