Cafe Troia was established in 1986 by the Troia family, natives of Naples, Italy. When you dine with us, rest assured that you are eating foods that meet a higher standard than the USDA - ours. We have been doing Farm to Table for 33 years. Our natural meats have no artificial hormones or antibiotics. When possible, we purchase local produce to endure its freshness. All this is nothing new, we have operated this way since 1986 which is why we have such a loyal following.
We have three separate dining rooms, offering privacy for special events. We have the prettiest outdoor dining with a covered deck, an outdoor bar, and a piazza dining area.

    The veal scallopini and potatoes were overcooked and the meat tasted a bit off. My wife and I enjoy dining at Cafe Troia, but I found the quality of the food to be lower than usual.

    Service a little slower than usual.. Our wine was made with organic grapes, which was not noted in the description/comments for the wine. It was much too bitter for a Chianti.

    My wife and I have eaten here many times. Our evaluation is affected by the pandemic that exists now and the restrictions it puts on restaurants. This restaurant has always been excellent in the past. With that said: My wife had the Beef Carpaccio....how can you screw that up except it's always too little. I had the Grilled Calamari....tougher and harder to chew than in the past, but a very substantial portion....could be easily shared. My wife had her favorite Braciole with Gnocchi.....good but not as good as in the past I had The Vitello con funghi (veal with mushrooms)....a tougher than in the past but a very large portion. I swapped the "roasted potatoes" (which was served with everything...I had to wonder if the owners just bought stock in potatoes) for asparagus for an extra $4. Didn't like that especially because the asparagus was tough. The desserts were good! My wife had her favorite Tiramisu, smaller than other restaurants, but good. I had the Lemon Napoleon which was VERY good. The service, though, was excellent. Emilia W. was our waitress and was VERY good. Overall, I believe any and all disappointments were because of the restrictions due to the virus.

    We had gone to dinner to celebrate my birthday. The outside patio was beautiful albeit a bit hot (although the first seat was by a dumpster and there was an unpleasant smell). It was no problem to move our seats when we asked. The server was very helpful with making suggestions and attentive. My only disappointment was that she never acknowledged my birthday- even though my husband had added it as a note on the Open Table reservation. The food was outstanding! We will definitely be back.

    Tables were very nicely spaced apart on the terrace, allowing us to enjoy our first date night out in months on a beautiful evening. We loved the semi-dried tomatoes with burrata and the asparagus ravioli. My son loved the leftovers so much that he is trying to recreate the ravioli at home. Service was excellent and they have a great wine line. We took home a bottle of their house-made limoncello.

    On 2-22-2020, the food with the exception of dessert was AWFUL. I actually only ordered a salad since I am plant-based dieter and our server was hell bent of boasting about his being vegan and proceeded to instruct me on what I could eat and not eat from the menu. Go figure, I am a physician and certainly know what to consume as a plant-based dieter. The salad was a double portion, yet I was served a bowl full of green and a sprinkling of toppings (I actually counted the apple slices and tomatoes). The raspberry vinaigrette was yellow in color and FLAVORLESS (I requested the salad not be dressed) Scrapped an entree and had the Blackberry Sorbet while my daughter enjoyed her full meal! Comparison to my 1st time dining at Cafe Toria on T'giving Day and on 2-22..... a 1 STAR rating.

    We have 3 separate private dining rooms holding up to 25, 40 and 65 each. Two rooms have private outdoor accommodations for additional space; one has a covered veranda and the other has a partially covered Courtyard and garden area, making it the perfect spot for a wedding, rehearsal dinner or other special occasion.
