Diner Reviews
  • "I had no doubt about the great service the waiters provided. I did have to call them a couple of times to help explain some of the items on the list and they were happy to do it. The overall look and ambiance of the restaurant was excellent and as was expected of an Italian restaurant of this caliber. The Halal menu was sufficient and there were many choices. It was a first time experience. I wouldn't come to the restaurant regularly due to the pricing but for those rare celebratory occasions, it might be worth to travel to Princeton. Food was mild in taste as far as spices are concerned, which was expected. Restaurant is good for first time experience of fine dining."

  • "Met a friend at the restaurant. she had never been there but I had. Service and food were terrific. Food could have been served a bit hotter. The waitress was very nice but was not strong enough to carry two plates so that she needed help when she came to table to serve us. Other than that, the service was attentive and the food terrific."

  • "The food was good (as usual), however, there was a large party in another room. As a result, it took a long time for our food to come out. Unfortunate."

  • "Beautiful restaurant, whether one eats in or out. Food & service were excellent. Location, however, is within a quiet outdoor mall so does not attract many people. You really have to know its there."

  • "Tre Pianist has a great setting for al fresco dining overlooking the central square in Forrestal Village. Unlike many other places, Tre Piani is off the road, making their outdoor experience very pleasant. Their service is attentive and professional. Peter, at the front desk, is a warm host, greeting regulars by name. The food has gotten a bit uneven. My dining companion's pasta was overlooked and the pignoli crust on my scallops was leathery rather than crunchy. That said, the scallops themselves were large and sweet and my companion's crab and avocado salad was delicious. Tre Piani is a good place and with more care in the kitchen, they could be great, again."

  • "Perfect night to dine outside. We shared prosciutto and honeydew to start. Dinners were the crispy spaghetti and veal valdostana. We were disappointed that the soecisl of swordfish was already sold out."

  • "The service was terrible. Long wait for drinks, wrong sides, wrong coffee order, wrong desserts. Food was cold. When it was sent back, it was microwaved! The feature dish of scallops was burnt. No apologies=no returns!"

  • "This was our second time going to Tre Piani. The first time we went we weren't in love with it but we had friends suggest we try it again. The second time was so much worse than the first. When we arrived it seemed like we had 2 waiters fighting for our table and once our order was taken they both gave up the fight an neither came back to our table. We got our salads right away then had to wait over and hour for our entree which were pasta dishes that had clumped together and were under cooked. The manager made no apology for anything and was very reluctant to comp any of our meal. When he finally did he made it seem like he was doing us a huge favor. We won't be going back again."

  • "Overall poor service. Waiter not familiar with items on menu. Some items very over priced. Hard location to find. Overall experience not very good."

  • "I've always found the appetizers better than the entrees here. The mozzarella is delicious. The service we had here the last time really ruined our evening though. We went for our anniversary and we had to track down our waiter every time we needed something. If I go here again and get seated in his section I will ask to be reseated or just leave (and I've never done that before)."

  • "The best value at Tre Piani is the Friday night dinner special for $29.95 for 3 courses. But we love to be here during the week when we can enjoy a quiet dinner outside on the patio. Its like being in Italy in a piazza and the food is as good. We know the portions will not be huge and the prices not small, but we appreciate the freshness and quality of everything we eat. We love the flavors of the Griggtown chicken and the fresh oysters. The housemade mozzarella makes the capressi salad perfect. The pastas are light (although not all the sauces are, but you can ask for anything and they'll try to accommodate). Love, love, love it here. Cheers to Jim Weaver for keeping it going and never relinquishing quality for quantity!"

  • "My wife and I have an opportunity to have a date night (with no kids this time)! Tre Piani offered a wonderful variety of choices for dinner. Everything we tried was great!! The service was friendly and efficient. I can say the seafood risotto was delicious! After the main course, try the tiramisu. It was unique in presentation but really good."

  • "There was no bartender (on a Friday night), so the Manager and our waiter took turns making drinks. I had to ask a bus person three different times to go to the bar and get our waiter, after waiting 30 minutes between courses. It took us 2 hrs 45 min to eat an appetizer, entrée and dessert. As for the food, it was not much better. We got three portions of the Antipasto ($16.00/person), and it was served like diner food. The entrees were better, but not much. The Griggstown Chicken was bland, the Duck Special was covered in a sweet sauce that overwhelmed the flavor, and the Rigatoni with Beef Tips was mostly devoid of any Beef Tips. We will not be back until we drive by and see a sign that says "New Owners!""

  • "The food and service at lunch were very good. Waiters did not hoover, but were there when needed. Food was very tasty and portions were reasonable. Staff was friendly without over doing. The ambiance was excellent - noise level was low so that conversation could take place with soft to moderate voices."

  • "I had the Tre Burger and fries. That was one of the most delicious burgers I've ever eaten ... really! My disappointment was that I thought the entire menu was Hilal (based upon reading the website). My friend was not able to have a burger too because ground beef was not Hilal. My friend had the Spicy Tuna Sliders and thoroughly enjoyed them."

  • "Seated upstairs ambience of Hampton inn conference room. Everything from tuna tartar to veal masalas tasteless and miscolored. Pizza(S) were awful. filet over cooked. "

  • "Loved this restaurant for so many reasons. Nice atmosphere. Quiet enough for my 89 year old mother to hear everyone. Varied menu, including a Restaurant Supported Agriculture 3-course special (Fridays), lots of gluten free options including GF pasta. They also had 1/2 portions of their entrees. And it's in Forestial Village so you don't have to deal with Princeton crowds on the weekend. Would definitely recommend."

  • "My husband & I have eaten at fine restaurants in NYC & San Francisco as well as many cities in Italy. The menu here offers a wide range of choices & the meals we chose were wonderful. We shared a fabulous pasta & my husbands Rock Cornish Game Hen was superb as was my Cicken Picatta! The ambience is comfortable & the service is friendly & informed. We enjoyed a leisurely & delicious dinner. We are happy to recommend this restaurant."
