A word from Trio Rhode Island
Located just steps from Narragansett Bay, Trio brings the warmth and tradition of Sunday’s family dinner back en vogue. An open-air kitchen showcases wood-fired ovens that emit aromas of basil and freshly baked dough; the wood-fired grill is adorned with chops, steaks and seafood, while pasta is being freshly made before your eyes. Outside, enjoy al fresco dining just steps away from the beach.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    The Wednesday special of all entrees at $17.95 is one of the best kept secrets in town. Full portions at a discounted price. We'll definitely be returning to continue trying the menu selections. We started with filet mignon which was excellent.

    service was excellent and our server very knowledgeable of the menu. My Filet rivaled the steakhouses in NYC where I lived for 20+ years. My wife's Salmon was prepared to perfection. Have never been disappointed in my many visits to Trios and always find the staff well trained - I highly recommend the restaurant

    Thanks to a smart up to date business owner having "open table", my wife and I were very pleased to have found such a surprise nestled off the main strip and rightfully so. I've been to the typical hotspot by the sea as we've passed through R.I. Over the years, however, will always return now the obtain this wonderful little gem for another total experience at Trio.

    Delicious food with beautiful presentation. Waiter was spot on. Attentive, but not hovering; polite and helpful when we had questions about the menu; apologized for very slight delay in bringing a drink order; and did not make us feel rushed at all. Plenty of parking in lot or street and close to the most beautiful beach in the state.

    Dined on 10/8/2014
    If you are looking for a great mid week deal, go to Trio. Every entree is $17.95 and that includes the filet. It came out piping hot and cooked perfectly. the mashed potatoes and veggies were also delicious and hot. It was fresh from the kitchen, not sitting under a heater. The bread was nice and warm and our wait server kept replenishing our water. Wine list is ver good and a good selection to choose from. Going back again next week. Nice mid week treat.

    Again, my companions and I were impressed with Trio, The Wednesday Dinner Special - all entrees are $17.95, including the Filet Mignon which on other days, is $37.95!! We all had steak this time around- the filet and sirloin- absolutely delicious!! Our calamari appetizer was also tasty. On another occasion, we had the capellini with shrimp - again, delicious! The service was excellent, too. If you want a table on a Wednesday, you need to go early, or make a reservation because so many people have found out about this tremendous offer.

    My husband and I picked this restaurant solely based on internet reviews. We were not disappointed, and in fact, we were absolutely delighted with our dinner experience. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, the service was some of the best we have ever had, and the food was fabulous. Our appetizer, the meatballs, came quickly and was hot and delicious. Our entrees also came in a timely manner and were cooked to perfection. Would highly recommend, and hope to go back when we can see the view (it was dark and pouring rain the evening we were there). Wish we lived closer!

The service was really good, there when you need something but not invasive. A lovely evening was had by all. Would definitely recommend.

    Party of 4 with 2 having filet mignon ordered medium to med/well done. Both arrived very rare and had to be sent back. Did not receive our steaks to well after the other couple had completely finished their meals. We were given deserts on the house for the error but it seemed the steaks should have been given back to us so much sooner. Restaurant was very noisy

    We had reservations at 5 but decided to go early and they easily accommodated us. It was very quiet but very few tables were occupied at that time.The food was very good, though we ordered more lunch food than dinner, and the service was cordial. We will definitely go there again perhaps for a more formal dinner!

    From beginning to end we had a terrific evening. We had made reservations and were seated immediately upon arrival. The restaurant was full and active and yet our server was at our table within a couple of minutes. She took our drink order and was professional enough to allow us time to enjoy our drinks before taking our dinner order. My wife and I both had the filet mignon and were extremely pleased. Both orders were cooked perfectly. The portions of meat were very generous and were accompanied by wonderful sides.

    This is our second trip to Trio and it certainly didn't disappoint. My husband is disabled and the staff was more than eager to accommodate our wheelchair and special needs. We ordered the calamari appetizer, remembering it from last year. We were disappointed that they had discontinued the chili glaze, but it was still delicious. Especially notable is that when my Flat Iron Steak was served without a steak knife, I whispered to my husband "I hope this is tender." It was, but half way through using my butter knife to cut my steak, the manager breezed through with a knife and a smile. We only go out on one date each year and we look forward to next year's visit! Perhaps we'll get that same table a third time, it's like they remember us!

    This was my third visit to Trio and the very best. The food was extra delicious, (the freshest seafood), the service was outstanding and the martinis were awesome. Everything just flowed like it should and honestly, I didn't want to leave. Ended up in Newport the next night, and our meal there wasn't even comparable. You should seriously consider opening up a restaurant there!

    The menu has some of everything to please a variety or tastes and moods, all very well prepared and tasty. Excellent, friendly, professional service. The menu has a lot of variety, from simpler burgers and sandwiches, grilled seafood, filet mignon, and salads to more creative items, such as more complicated seafood dishes, pastas, etc. Excellent starters focused on seafood, including top-rate stuffed clams. Noteworthy bar menu, wine list, etc. Desserts are delish! Reasonable prices for the quality of the food. Three dining areas -- a dining room, a bar area with high tables, and the outdoor terrace. The dining terrace has a view of the famous Narragansett Towers and seaside beyond, but is not right on the water.
