“Celebrate or Just Have Dinner”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Perfect venue for that amazing birthday celebration or the night you are just too tired to figure out dinner. Either way there is elegance yet simplicity found. Food excellent. Wait staff excellent. Menus excellent. Management staff always visible and present in all ways. Amazing pizza, entree salads, and interesting dinner, brunch and specials. Know that your experience is consistently the same.....excellent.

“Best lunch for the money”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

My lunch group goes here twice a month. The menu is teriffic and always delicious. The place is perfect for groups. It's always packed. You need reservations for groups fo six or more. The service is top notch. Casual dining is appropriate. It's bright and airy and very hospitable. That's why there is always a waiting line to get in. GREAT eatery!!!!!!!

“Trio for Mio”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

My wife and I have been eating at Trio since 1992 and we have NEVER had a problem with staff or the food there. We always enjoy their calamari served with a marinara sauce and lemon garlic aioli. The Brick Oven favorite is also excellent. The spinach salad with the bacon dressing is fantastic. The Wood Smoked Chicken Penne is great. Wednesdays are typically Prime Rib night served with ajus and horseradish sauces... makes my mouth water just thinking of their food! The pizzas from their in-house brick oven are wonderful. If you go into a restaurant looking for problems, you are going to find them, I don't care where you dine. Give Trio a try and decide for yourself.

“Worst Dining Experience in a long, LONG time.”
Reviewed May 12, 2012

If you like restaurants with dirty carpets, rude service and HORRIBLE food, look no further, this is your place.
By the way, Mr. "Manager"; if I tell you that brunch hours are not showing on the website, you can trust me, they are NOT showing.
Worst Eggs Benedict I've had in my life, and I have had many.
