A word from Tre Dici
"Chelsea's best kept secret..."

An unexpected find on a busy Chelsea block, this bi-level gem offers killer Italian fare with seasonal ingenuity in a modern and attractive space overseen by a spot on staff. And the upstairs, speakeasy/bordello-like quarters serves up impressive red meats and pastas in an atmosphere rivaling that of the 1930's. Either way, a sexy vibe and genial staff make either floor a perfect date pick.

    First visit: great food, great service Second visit: great food, sub par service. Planned never to return. Third visit: great food (loved the Angry Lobster), fantastic service! The food quality is the best! I will definitely make this a regular spot on subsequent trips to New York. And hopefully I will never have to receive sub par service as it diminishes the overall experience.

    Really bad lighting overwhelms this otherwise OK small place. Lighting in the small front area is dominated by the bar and the TV. In the backroom, bright. white fluorescent light streams through the window in the door to the kitchen, then floods the area every time a server enters or exits the kitchen -- which is, of course, a lot. So any hope of ambiance is lost.

    Ate downstairs in the Italian portion of the restaurant. Small place, but very nice. The block felt a little off the beaten path, but the place was nice. Hostess/bar tender and wait staff were attentive. Food was quite good. Three of us - two had fish and one had Veal Chop. I had the Tuna Tartar app which was very yummy. No complaints on any of it. Were there on a Wednesday night so not very crowded=quiet. However, given the size of the place I would assume it can get loud when they have more tables occupied. Would definitely go back.

    The layout of Tre Dici is rather odd, with a few tables in front, a large empty area near the bar (which was empty) and a crowded rear. But the very good food was a happy compensation. The Kobe beef ravioli were delicious, as was the Sea Bass. The pear salad was very tasty, though there was not much pear. But the dressing was bright and balanced and the greens quite fresh and tasty. The banana ice cream was a dessert rich enough to satisfy but not overwhelming. Delicious wines by the glass (though the Barbaresco 2011 is too young to serve), friendly alert service. Coffee a bit weak but that can be fixed. If I find myself in this part of town and am looking for a meal, I would come back to Tre Dici.

    We ate at Tre Dici before a concert at MSG. It was perfect! We loved the modern, easy style as we walked in. The tables are a good distance apart. The service was friendly and allowed us to linger a while before we decided. Our food was outstanding. Prices were good. We were out on time for the show. We will definitely return to Tre Dici.

    Not really a full Italian restaurant nor a steakhouse. Very pretty interior although too dark to read the menu. Everyone was using the light on their phone to see the menu. Excellent, quick service. Inside out meatballs as a starter were great. I had the veal chop parm and my wife had the chicken. Both were huge and delicious. One of the best meals we have ever had.

    Turns out a college friend and myself were going to be in NYC the same time. The places I know/normally frequent were not available when we were both free. Found Tre Dici online and the reviews made it sound more like a date place. Went for it anyway and we had a great time. While it would be a good date place, it didn't feel overly "date-ish." So the next time you want nice ambiance and good food...head to Tre Dice!

    Great neighborhood find near my hotel. The staff, Katie in particular, provided extremely attentive service. The food was beautifully prepared and delicious. The ambience was elegantly hip. A great spot for date night or a business traveller dining alone. I will make this restaurant a regular stop when I travel to NY for business.

    Awesome evening spent with a great server: Katie LeMark aho was not only very personable but very well informed on the menu and meal preparation. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection. I had the Twisted Sister Pasta, while my husband had the Jalapeno infused Pasta dish. Utterly sublime. We'll be back.

    I had made a reservation for the restaurant upstairs but on arrival, I was advised that there was a private party and we would be dining downstairs. Because the reviews had stated to be certain to dine upstairs, I was unhappy but had no time to make alternate plans . We were pleasantly surprised by the warm and friendly service . The food was delicious, the menu was broad with selections and when we decided to share two entrees - they suggested plating them separately (four dishes instead of two) . We were not rushed but our server checked in to be certain we had no needs. All in all, a wonderful experience.

    We found this small but very fun and contemporary restaurant just searching near our hotel. We will be back, as we were pleasantly surprised by the food. The veal chop parmigiana was outstanding as was the farfalle with lobster. The service was attanrive but not obtrusive. Even though the place is mall we did not feel on top of other diners and were able to have a quiet romantic dinner.
