Superb and Authentic
Always a great time at Tre Piani and Tre Bar. It is a little hard to find, I guess that is why they always try so hard to please. The food is always fresh, beautiful and delicious. My last visit I tried the homemade silk lobster ravioli with mascarpone, it was feather light and absolutely sinfully delicious. Equally delicious is the veal osso buco. For dessert I tried a canoli cake and an excellent espresso. Do yourself a favor and go.

Creative Medittreanean Cuisine
Not our first time here nor our last ... a great "go-to" choice when going out with a mixed group - i.e., some who enjoy creative, unusual and wonderful cuisine, and others in the group who are less adventurous and prefer more traditional options. Tre Piani does both, and they do it very well.

The Silky Lobster Ravioli
The Silky Lobster Ravioli was AMAZING. I've never had anything like it before. I tried it because of another rave review on it, and it did not disappoint. They had a kale salad as a special, and I tried that too. Very unusual, and very good. The staff was very attentive, the Rioja wine I had was excellent and I will definitely go back. The pasta with sausage dish my daughter had was ok - nothing superb, but the Lobster Ravioli made up for it.

This is one of our favorite
This is one of our favorite restaurants, but the service during our last visit was not up to their usual standards. The wait staff seemed confused, asking for our order a few times, forgetting to serve our drinks until we asked, and bringing us additional bread after the meal (and dessert) was completed. Fortunately, the food was up to its usual excellent standard, so we'll overlook the service issues.

Never a so-so experience. Food and service are always excellent!

Great food keeps us coming back
great food keeps us coming back but not the service. We had a combo of the $29 3- course dinner and an a la carte choice. Great value for the food provided. Delicious piniolli-encrusted seafood was excellent and well prepared, although very rich. Nice pinot noir by the glass, but white wine was warm. Host is very customer-focused and is the heart of this operation, from a customer perspective. Service can be slow, which is fine, but some request is often forgotten (i.e. request for a diet coke, or ground pepper). Staff is sincere but not on their A game. With all this said, still a great restaurant which offers great food and should not be missed.

Excellent Business Meal Location
Tre Piani has been preferred restaurant at my company for business meals for some time. This occasion was a team celebration and the upstairs room easily accomodated our table of ten (and can easily accomodate much larger groups). Despite being a large(r) group and clearly a business meal, the service was personable and well-executed.

Never disappoints me
Been to Tre Piani and Tre Bar a number of times, consistently delicious, I had one of the most unusual swordfish preparations I ever had, sometimes unusual is over the top, the crock cooked, stuffed dish was balanced and perfectly prepared.

delicious meal with another
delicious meal with another couple. starters were clams in wine sauce, which while excellent was a skimpy service of 6 for $14, and a garden salad. three of us chose soft shell crabs and a lone veal parm from the specials menu, which was printed along with prices, such a thoughtful touch!

Brought a team of 15 here
Brought a team of 15 here for work celebration and on short notice they arranged a semi- private table upstairs. I've eaten here a few times for lunch as well and loved it. It's delicious food and great service. Has a warm, friendly maître di and a back bar area that is fun to eat and drink at while you wait or for your main meal.
I had the Papparadelle with Exotic Mushrooms Truffle butter, and was so happy with my dish. Everyone was jealous. Desserts are fabulous and worth the calories. Also, always order the white bean hummus and arugula salad which are favorites.
Great place for business dinners and events.

Salads and apps great, skip dessert
Great salads, so fresh and flavorful. The 3-course dinner offered on Fridays is the best deal, otherwise pretty pricey.
Great chicken Milanese and veal osso buco. Desserts not great as they're all too sweet. The waiters are slow but the host is great and very attentive which makes s big difference.

We invited another couple and kept apologizing for the less than acceptable service. Also, we ordered off the menu as the 3-course special did not provide anything we were interested in eating. The tomato and mozzarella salad was good but very overpriced. Overall, we all agreed that this was the theme of the night. Management needs to find ways to keep customers coming back as we will not be.

We sat and ate outdoors and enjoyed a beautiful evening with our friends. Great food and great service.

a treat for this restaurant to be open on a sunday and it was very busy! unfortunately a rainy night so we were unable to eat outside.
we shared a Caesar salad to start which was so large that 2 of us could not finish! dh had a rib eye... the leftovers are fabulous. I tried the crispy spaghetti..absolutely plate licking good! a nice chianti rounded out the meal!

Sitting outdoors feels like Italy
The $29 3-course RSA dinner offered on Fridays is the best deal in town!! Corn chowder and heirloom tomato salad were great first courses. Scallops over penne and stuffed flounder over risotto were delicious. Mango sorbet with fresh blueberries and a dollop if cream was refreshing. Sitting outside on a beautiful summer night made it a perfect evening. The surrounding fig trees made us feel like we were in Italy. Molto grazie!

I enjoyed dinner at Tre Piani
I enjoyed dinner at Tre Piani on Thursday evening, September 5th. The Restaurant was very quiet, perhaps because it was Rosh Hashanah. I had fried calamari for my Appetizer and the Chef's Signature pignoli nut encrusted scallops for my Entree. Both were outstanding choices. I especially enjoyed Chris, their very social Bartender.

Birthday Dinner with Great Wine
We went to Tre Piani to celebrate my husband's parent's birthdays. The staff was friendly and professional, and the service was very good. I mentioned the birthdays then I made the reservations and at the end of the meal the waiter brought out two desserts with candles. The pizza appetizers were crispy and delicious, the pasta was cooked just right and the sauce was delicious. I'm a budding oneophile, and the wine list was what really caught my eye. They have a very nice selection. I tried the Victorian Claret and the Italian Super Tuscan and was impressed with both. They also have a separate wine bar with outdoor seating and a creative bar menu. My hubby and I started with a glass there as we waited for the rest of the group.

Wonderful dining experience
Every time we go to Tre Piani we have an incredible meal, with a friendly staff who go out of their way to make you comfortable. Their menu is excellent and diverse, something for everyone and their daily specials are superb!

we took advantage of their
we took advantage of their "dine and ride" and arrived and left in a stretch limo! how special. meals are always fab- shared butternut squash carbonara, which was part of the special menu that they happily allowed us to chose just this dish. taste was wonderful fall flavor with just a perfect amount of prosciutto. DH and I both chose the Barnegat flounder which comes with arugula and sweet potato fries. just marvelous. our companions shared a Caesar and chose the chicken and seafood risotto. excellent bottle of sauvignon blanc!

Excellent service, they accommodated two different food allergies without making a fuss. The wine pairings the waiter suggested were perfect. Some of the best oysters I've ever eaten. We will definitely eat there the next time we're in Princeton. Tre Piani is a much better alternative than other restaurants along Route 1, and much easier to get into with a last minute booking than restaurants near Nassau Street.

Pleasant Family dinner
I ate there with my family and father-in-law and we had a very enjoyable meal. The food was very good, as it has been when I have been there before. I would recommend the special chocolate dessert at the start of the meal as otherwise you have to wait 20-30 minutes, but my daughter said it was worth the wait. Overall a very good experience.
