Went with friends to catch up on life. Our waiter Jose shared the specials of the evening with us, then made excellent recommendations for which kind of wine would go with the meals we ordered. The food was prepared with care, the plates arrived looking delicious, and tasted even better. We enjoyed a wonderful meal, an unhurried pace and were able to relax with our friends.
After reading and hearing some very good reviews, we really waned to like Cafe Troia, but we were fairly disappointed. We started with the arancini. The filling was good, but the outside was very under done and not at all crisp. We each then had the arugula salad which was a bit under seasoned, but easily fixed with some salt and pepper. For the main course, I got the bracciole with gnocchi. The gnocci was very mushy, and the rest of the dish was just ok. My wife got the agnolotti piemontesi, which was the highlight of the dinner. The pasta was well cooked, and the filling and sauce were very good.
On the positive side, the service was excellent. The staff was friendly and attentive. The wine was also very good.
It is possible that they had an off night since we have heard from a number of people that Cafe Troia is very good, so we may give it another shot.
Lisa and the Team at Cafe Troia did super job making our dinner very enjoyable. The dinners (duck and filet) were delicious, along with the dessert and wine. Definitely on my list of places to go back to.....Well done...
Four of us had dinner at Cafe Troia and we enjoyed the experience. The food was very good, and it was reasonably priced. Our waiter was knowledgeable, and he had a good sense of humor, too. The setting was nicely lit with dimmed lights, and we could have a conversation without shouting.
My husband and I went for our anniversary based on reviews I had read. The restaurant ambiance is lovely and the menu is very impressive. We shared two appetizers of which the grilled calamari was outstanding. We then each had a pasta (homemade) dish, both of which were delicious. We also enjoyed our drinks. They were very generous and sent dessert over on the house for our anniversary. Our only complaint was, although our server was very nice, service was extremely and unnecessarily slow. If we go back, it will be for the great food, not the service!
Had the grilled salmon sandwich. Highly recommend it. Excellent and friendly service.
This year I selected Cafe Troia for our company Christmas luncheon. I could not have been more pleased. Food was wonderful, service was attentive and friendly but not intrusive. Don’t miss great coffee selection and desserts were top notch!!
We topped it off by being able to make “coats for kids donations” right there!!! Happy Holidays to all.
Thanks Cafe Troia team!
The food was delicious, but the service was off. I took over 20 minutes to bring additional rolls, and another 20 for butter. All the help was polite and kind.
Very professional and friendly staff...accommodating to baby in high chair..great ambiance...EXCELLENT food!!!
The food was very, very good. Waiter was friendly and attentive. The noise level was totally unacceptable. We expect a busy restaurant to be somewhat noisy on a Saturday evening. However, on this occasion, a party of six was seated in the middle of the dining area. They were beyond loud...they were obnoxiously loud. Seemed to have had too much alcohol. And...their waiter made matters worse by yelling and joining in. In fact, after they paid their bill, he sat down with them and joined in the bad behavior. Other waiters, including ours, just rolled their eyes and seemed to be embarrassed. My wife started to attempt to say something to them, but they were far too gone. The restaurant staff should have handled the situation better. Ruined an otherwise very good evening.
