We had not been to Tre Piani in quite a few months and before returning this past Saturday, my husband had read some negative reviews which worried us. Turns out the meal was wonderful. We sat at the bar in the main dining room and Trish, the bartender took great care of us. The martinis were good and the meal... More

Our first time at Tre Piani, we found it on Groupon. First time we came across a restaurant we didn't like! The service was excellent but the food was disappointing. Our friends ordered the eggless Caesar salad & some ordered the fried calamari, nothing spectacular. For entrée most ordered the scallops, the general consensus was; they were under cooked &...

I really enjoy going to Tre Bar. The happy hours deals are good and the atmosphere is always very warm and relaxing. The couches are a nice way to relax a

We ordered Ossobuco and it was not available. Afterwards, I got veal which was not bad, but not good either. It was expensive. The merlot wasn't great either. A colleague ordered some steak, but got instead a nice fillet mignon. He was lucky, I am not. The food seems to be a lottery here. The waiter was great though and... More

I have dined here several times over the years and really enjoyed it. I hadn't been here in a couple of years and had just talked to my husband about going back when a Groupon popped up. So we figured why not? Well, the restaurant and the ambience are the same, but the food certainly is not. It was substandard... More

I cannot recommend Tre Pianni. We had to attend a meeting near this restaurant, and as it was our anniversary, I wanted a nice place for dinner afterwards. This was convenient, and I had heard it was good. it was not. The food was decidedly average, which would be ok if the prices were too. They were not. While it... More

Atmosphere was great. The Amish chicken breast was tasty and same with the sautee of kale and apples. The herb whipped potatoes were ok - think I was missing some herbs! My wife enjoyed the filet mignon. Carrot cake was good. The hot chocolate cake dessert baked in phyllo was amazing ... the chocolate gelati sat on top of chocolate... More

I get the same thimg everytime we go. Linguini with clams, pieces of bacon in a wine sauce. Delicious.... Its $11.00 fot half &... More

Italian food menu is decent by the Ossobuco offered was not veal but pork - that made the difference. And will not order this one again next time. Decent wine but the house Cannolis are a disappointment.
