Perfect night to sit on the patio. Waiter (Lloyd) was very knowledgeable of both food and wine menus, and willingly answered my questions. The tomato soup was fresh and well seasoned. The Spaghetti Pomodoro was delicious and accented with fresh basil. I added the optional meatballs, and received three large ones... also very good, but more than I could finish. There was a wonderful black cherry gelato...

It was Sunday and we wanted Mexican but all the recommended close places were closed so we found this nice little Italian bistro close to our hotel. OMG, it was awesome! We sat inside and our waitress Riley was awesome. She was honest about the selections and we both settled on the spaghetti pomodoro. One with meatballs and one w/o. Both were delicious with just the right portions. She paired the wine perfectly. I thought I wanted the chianti but she recommended another red and it paired so well. Next time in SLC we are heading to Cafe Trio!

The service was great and the outdoor patio was really nice. Unfortunately, the food was nothing special and some of it was very disappointing. We won't be going there again.

The flatbread appetizer was excellent, as was the pizza and the baked penne pasta. Patio pleasant but sparse. Food was excellent, and the value as expected. Keep up the good work!

If want feel unwelcome from the start, unserved while other who’d arrived much later while there are tons on servers available, this is where you need to come

Brought some friends to your restaurant for their first time. Seated at a perfect quiet table just inside the picture window with view of patio. Never disappointing for a Sunday Brunch!

Wait staff was robotic and not able to "read" the table - yanking plates off the table when there was still appetizer (flat bread) left to eat, trying to take drink orders when part of our party was arriving (should have offered to come back later), clearing main plates when some in our party were still eating. The food itself was a mixed bag in terms of quality - flat bread was undercooked, ravioli was undercooked. Other main dishes were ok. Not impressed by our overall experience.

We booked not knowing it was a Mother’s Day dinner buffet (so we were a little taken off guard by that and by the price) but the buffet was beautiful and delicious.

I wasn’t aware that dogs were allowed inside of a restaurant. When we arrive we noticed that a nearby table had 2 chihuahuas in a stroller. Obviously not service animals because they actually barked a few times. I love animals but don’t believe they should be allowed in a restaurant. The server was also petting the dogs which was concerning considering food safety standards. Shame on Trio for allowing a health code violation.

Food was decent - cauliflower dish was quite good. The waitress asked us if we wanted dessert and gave us our check while we were still eating, which was odd. We felt rushed. The restaurant wasn't even completely full.
