Unique menu--special twists
Unique menu--special twists on lesser known dishes. Fabulously fresh pasta, crisp vegetables, well-balanced sauces. Place could use some touch up paint and a vacuum. Our server was knowledgeable and paced our meal perfectly.

great food,bad design
food is great, but an annoying back door is a real turn-off with people coming and going past tables.

The food is creative and very good and most things are not overpriced. Waitstaff are attentive. Tables are very close together which is a bit uncomfortable for private conversation.

The food here is as good as anyplace you will find in NYC or any other major city with great restaurants. And it is clear that the owner chef takes great pride and interest in his restaurant, patrons and menu. It's refreshing to see. Our only complaint is the noise level. On the night we were there we unfortunately had a very loud patron a few tables over. He was so loud that the owner actually apologized. I have been here a few times and my conclusion is table choice is key. I'm also looking forward to nicer weather so that we can use treva's outdoor patios.

Thanks to Groupon, we were
Thanks to Groupon, we were introduced to this northern Italian restaurant during a recent lunch. We were given a choice of being seated in the front or in the back. We chose the latter and I noticed on good size deck in the back which would be perfect on a warm spring day. We were brought menus and some warm crusty bread along with olive oil – delicious. I ordered an arugula salad and our waiter immediately asked if we wanted to share. It was good that he did because the portion size was perfect. Lightly dressed and topped with shaved Parmesan – simple perfection.
My wife ordered the tagliatelle with mushrooms, asparagus and very tender veal. I requested the Pettine – lightly seared scallops, wild mushrooms, shaved asparagus and the

Treat yourself to Treva!
Excellent food, wonderfully creative and deliciously made, beautifully plated. Prices moderate and waitstaff friendly.

The food at Treva is a cut above the rest. I had scallops and they were perfectly cooked, and teh creamy polenta was just perfect. This restaurant gets it right with service adn food every time.

My wife and I have been to Treva for dinner numerous times and recently for lunch. It's a fantastic restaurant in West Hartford and one of the best food deals in Connecticut. The food could hang with Italian restaurants at twice the cost.
4/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is a great option in West Hartford - we'll come back and try dinner.

The luncheon menu was very
The luncheon menu was very affordable, and I saw on the menu some very appealing dishes that were not much more money than what I would spend on an ordinary sandwich at a local luncheonette. The lamb chop that I ordered (and it was quite the hefty lamb chop) was cooked to perfection.

The food, service and atmosphere were all great. It was comfortable and casual , welcoming. I like the fact the busy bar is separated from the restuarant. How fleshing not be distracted by tv screens while eating. I enjoyed the rabbit with lentils and sour blueberries . My wife got a pasta and shrimps dish that was excellent . The pasta was above average and rather than being a foil for the other ingredients stood as important part of the dish.

Looking forward to going back
So far I have been here for happy hour (4-6, seven days a week), which is a wonderful deal (good wine by the glass selection and great small plates for about $5) and now lunch al fresco. The food was excellent although the service seemed slow (it took a good half hour for our entree salads to be served, meanwhile tables nearby who arrived after we did were already finished eating). The salads were excellent and so were our desserts (ricotta cheesecake and a coffee panna cotta). Looking forward to going back for dinner if we can get a reservation - it is a super popular place!

I met an old friend for lunch
I met an old friend for lunch -- Treva was a midway point for us. We spent almost 3.5 hours at the table, enjoying the delicious food and catching up with each other. The setting, service, and food were wonderful, and obviously, we were not rushed! We will be back!
5/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
My guest and I had a wonderful outdoor table, great food and excellent service. We started off with wine, shared a beet salad and each ordered fish specialties. My guest had deliciously plump and perfectly seared sea scallops and I chose their "Bronzino" fish which is a version of a sea bass, grilled to perfection with lemon oil and seasoning, cleaned of all bones and served with potatoes and spinach. Simply perfect!

Another great dining evening
Treva never disappoints - the food was excellent. The staff was wonderfully accommodating -two of us shared dishes. One was easily split in the kitchen; the other was done for us tableside which just aded that touch of class. A nice wine list to complement our meal. And it is always great to see the owner who still meks the time to stop by to say hello. Introduced a friend who said they will definitely come back.

Very Nice Spot; Quite Noisy
Food was very good and proportioned well. Wait staff was very friendly and fairly attentive. We were even seated early with a comment from the staff that they would rather see us seated early (half of our party wasn't there yet) and comfortably at "our" table than sitting/standing at the front door. Nice touch.
The only concern is the noise level. If you intend to have a quiet conversation with your dining party, that just is not going to happen. But if you are use to a loud bar-scene atmosphere, then this restaurant won't bother you in the least.
5/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
my husband and I found our meals to be outstanding! Staff was willing to make whatever we wanted. Owner was very friendly.

Long time Chef in fine dinning
I had dinner at Treva as a first date reunion of sorts I was very inpressed all around the food was excelent as was the service everything was prepared properly without any complaints from myself or my guest the only thing I did not like is the tables were sxratched and worn this may n ofbeen a rustic look the restaurant was looking for but there aare better ways to acvhieve this the server was friemdly amd knowledable although they didn't offer cracked pepper mill

Treva is far and away our favorite restaurant in West Hartford Center.
5/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been here many times and have never been disappointed. If you can get a table out back be sure to do so.

Great dining experience
Nice lively restaurant. The food was great. Loved the Bibb Salad and the La Bomba dessert. With a full restaurant it can get a little noisy especially because tables are very close together. Service was very good and we would definitely go again.

Fresh food, good service
I have dined here multiple times and am always impressed with how fresh the food is. I had the cod which was a generous piece of fish done perfectly. We started with calamari that was crispy and tender. A simple arugala was surprisingly delicious. I look forward to coming again for fresh, delicious, seasonal food.

Don't miss it!
We love Treva and always return each summer for a few fantastic meals. Even though we're summer residents, we still drive an hour for a meal at this place. The chef is warm and friendly and truly interested in your opinion of the food that comes out of his kitchen. The wait staff are very bright and attentive. The fresh pasta, salads and the lamb chop special were all delicious. We were pleased to share this restaurant with our friends who were also visiting from South Carolina. Treva would be a hit in a foodie city like Charleston SC.

Great luncheon entree of hangar steak, polenta and brussel sprouts. Love the place
6/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The foodis excellent. The curered meats and cheese selections are outstanding. Great place to sit down with a glass of champagne and the meat and chees board and enjoy.

Good Food and Drinks
This place was wonderful. The food was great, Very clean and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The price WAS a bit high....but considering everything, it was well worth it. Wonderful place for that special occasion, we will be returning and recommend it to one and all.

Great Food Great Time
My Husband and I came in for our 3 year Wedding anniversary after having our first child in March. It was our first time out alone without him and because of Treva it was perfect! Our server gave us great recommendations for pairing our cheese with our meat on the cheese and meat board as well as pairings for our wine choices based not just on our entrees but our personal tastes as well. We even got to sample the wine before ordering it. My husband ordered the Gnoochi and it was the best he'd ever had! Highly recommend Treva for a romantic night out with your significant other.

Overall, the food and experience was very good and I really enjoyed the evening. The service was excellent and I look forward to going back.

Excellent food; attentive service
Very creative menu. Excellent meat & cheese choices. Difficult time deciding because there were many things that sounded good from the menu. Went with pasta which was very tasty and cooked perfectly. Too full for dessert but would have had a hard time deciding about that too.

Dorian knows what he's doing, both in the front and the back of his restaurant.

first time visit
Wanted Italian food as I have had in Italy.
Food was outstanding. Drinks were a bit pricey.
Went for Italian food but when I saw the Ribeye Steak which was the special that night, on someones plate I had to try it.
Was not told "specials" prices and was a bit shocked at the price of the steak.
$44.00 for a steak and asparagus.???
Other than that, outstanding.

a hit with the group
Our small group has being doing a twice yearly get together for many years now, trying different places. This was our first time at Treva's, and the food was highly rated by all, which is a rare thing. The atmosphere was conducive to conversation. a great place to catch up with old friends.

When you want a delicious meal!
We've been to Treva at least a dozen times for lunch, dinner, Valentine's Day and New Year's eve and always enjoy the whole dining experience. The meals are varied and so delicious that most of the time we have to remind ourselves to put the fork down and savor the moment. We can not wait to go back!

Dinner with friends
Third visit here. Every time had a great meal. This time we had great cocktails ...The Don and a concoction made with grepefruit juice and Amerol. We tried all the cheeses, had the pulpo and calabrese salad. The fettucini special with shrimp and sweet sausage was delightful. Veal chop were done to perfection. Those who had the seven layer cake were in "chocolate Heaven".
I once again enjoyed the honey budino with the fig gelato.
The mixologist stoping at our table to explain the coctails was a plus. The only negative was that the waiter forgot a decaf coffe for one of our group. Highly recommend this restaurant

Gem in West Hartford
Treva is a delectable night out! Everything about it makes you look forward to returning. The fresh pasta, mozzarella,meats and seafood are exquisite in flavor and freshness. The service is outstanding and the bread is out of this world. All the authenticity of a quality, first rate, Italian restaurant!

The food is excellent. The homemade pasta is especially delicious. The wine list is extensive, and the bread comes with olive oil! Two options for outdoor dining - sidewalk and rear deck. Would definitely recommend it!

Great Italian Restaurant
Went here for a work dinner after an event in Hartford. We were pleasantly surprised with the food and wine list. The waiter was very attentive and knew a lot about the menu and made suggestions for things that weren't even on the menu.

A fantastic meal in West Hartford
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Treva and have already recommended it to others. Set in the middle of a bustling West Hartford center, Treva is a gem. Our special appetizer of stuffed squash blossoms was excellent and all three of the pasta dishes my table ordered were delicious and unique. The stand out of the evening was the special salad of bib lettuce, Gorgonzola and sliced pears dressed with a light lemon vinaigrette. Service was friendly and attentive, prices were within reason and my affogato with vanilla gelato was a great way to finish the meal.
10/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
One of the best!
I've been to Treva 5 times and each time it never disappoints! Food is fabulous and service is wonderful. I took a co- worker from St. Paul and she said it was "one of her favorite meals out". I look forward to my next outing there!!
