“Authentic Italian restaurant”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

"Three glasses" is the real McCoy regarding an authentic Italian restaurant. Two of us met for a business meeting halfway between Indianapolis and Louisville (Columbus, IN). We were promptly greeted by Tasa our server who quickly took our beverage orders and brought us some excellent bread and olive oil. We told her we wanted to talk for a bit before we ordered.

She came back in four minutes, then again in another four minutes, and we succumbed to her persistence. We ordered the soup of the day which was cream of mushroom (excellent choice as it was cold and rainy outside). We quickly received our soup (phenomenal taste) and guess what; she wanted to know if we had made up our minds on what order for our meal. I told her in the nicest possible way that we are "having a business lunch, we will not skip out, we look forward to eating a fine meal just give us 10 more minutes please, and we promised to order then".

That did the trick, and we finished our soup and Tasa came to take our order and we chose the create your own pasta lunch. We were both happy with our choices, I ordered the Spaghetti Bolognese, which was excellent.

We arrived at 11 AM sharp and there was only one other person in the restaurant and within 30 minutes the entire restaurant was full. It is a wonderful atmosphere with excellent food and super attentive servers.

For future business lunch meetings we highly recommend Tre Bicchieri!

“Consistent Service”
Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

Drove an hour from Indy for our second visit. Service is friendly and efficient. I enjoyed the house salad and minestrone soup. A wonderful seafood ravioli and fresh fish dish followed by best taramisu ever. The Choclate bread pudding also amazing. No negatives here at this friendly local hangout.

“Fantastic food and service”
Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

We had a fabulous dinner. i had chicken visuvio and hubby had the scallops - both were amazing! The apple and squash salad was fantastic as well. Server was very attentive. Best dinner out we have had in a while. I am dairy and egg intolerent and my email to the restaurant was replied to promptly and the server took this very seriously and verified with the chef what i could safely eat.
