I sat outside with an iced tea and had delicious bruschetta and a great fig/Gorgonzola/prosciutto snack, which together with fennel-roasted almonds made a perfect lunch for me. Lovely wait staff and a creative menu make this a place I'll return to often, and bring friends!

Tria is a gem. Very good selection of wine by the glass, and a menu of small plates that, at least so far, has never disappointed. Each dish is well thought through and the execution is flawless.

A branch of this comfortable, charming restaurant was across from our hotel on 12th and Spruce, the Alexander Inn. My husband and I visited twice during our stay for happy hour. The wine was wonderful, the cheese delicious, and the service exceptional.

Anytime I take a day trip into Phila I always make a stop at Tria. Great wines/beer by the glass. Not your typical "bar food", everything is fresh and elegant. The service is amazing. The atmosphere is very relaxing; music but no TVs which is a plus in my book.

Absolutely delicious and great service. Just happened upon this cafe. Had the smoked duck salad and it was totally excellent! As were my friends chicken and beet salads. Fresh food decent portions. Along with a shared liter of Pellegrino total charge with tax= $44.

I was walking Philadelphia looking for a glass of wine and lunch. A Summer Storm kept threatening to start, but I opted to sit on the sidewalk (the inside was a bit too noisy for me). A delicious Spanish Rose & a sandwich made my afternoon. The staff kindly moved all patrons inside when the threat of weather become clear.... More

My friend and I wanted a quick, but nice meal and we went to Tria, without reservations about 6 pm on a Thursday. It's just north of Rittenhouse Square. We were seated no problem at a window table. Small, but good wine list and excellent choices of small plates which we shared. With the small plates, you can have as... More
