    Tre RivaliResponded 3 days agoThanks Nicole. I am glad you loved the main course, and I won't let the chef's Nonna (granny) know you said that about her meatball recipe. :) We have plenty of amazing options to chose from though. I look forward to recommending some.

    Great food, wait staff was attentive. Time to get drinks took longer than expected but overall wonderful experience. Also they had a zero proof "mocktail" list on their drink menu which was such a great feature to have! (They had just added this so not sure if it is a forever thing or a dry January thing). Food was delicious and the menu had something for everyone

    Tre RivaliResponded 3 days agoThanks so much Samantha. Our Zero Proof cocktails are here to stay. Whether someone is avoiding alcohol or just wants to go light for the evening, we love having options. And they are really tasty too.

    Great brunch at Tre Rivali We both had a Mediterranean omelet and it was very flavorful. It came with an enormous side of fingerling potatoes. The service was great and it was a very pleasant atmosphere. The restaurant is in a cute boutique hotel. I have eaten there several times now, previously for dinner. The food and service are always great, and they have fantastic craft cocktails!

    Tre RivaliResponded 3 days agoThank you Lisa. I am delighted to hear you've had such a good time when you've been in. We really appreciate the support and business. Like you, I think that Mediterranean omelet is so delicious. Look forward to the next time. Thanks!

    This restaurant used to be a go-to favorite for brunch, dinners, and lunches. Not anymore... The menu has gone downhill, the recipes have become bland, and the service is slower than ever and devoid of care. A big disappointment as I used to love eating here.

    Tre RivaliResponded 3 days agoBen, I am so sorry to hear that you had a disappointing experience. Our food is generally so flavorful I am sorry we missed the mark. Let me know next time you come in we will make sure to take great care of you.

    I’d say that if you like a lot of butter you’ll probably enjoy this place. My 2nd time here.

    Tre RivaliResponded on January 17, 2023Thanks for coming back to see us! Did you have our ricotta dumpling dish or branzino? Both are deliciously buttery - I'm a big fan of both. The rest of the menu is mostly olive oil driven. But if you'd like us to hold the butter, just let us know! Look forward to seeing you back DJDJ

    The only thing that prevented me from giving a five-star review was the music. The food was delicious, presented well, very fresh, and generous portions. The service was very attentive and friendly. The atmosphere was pleasant. However, the music was abominable. Someone seriously needs to change the music from 80s dance club tunes to something more conducive to eating. The food was so good that we will definitely return again and again. It would be nice, though, to have less jarring music in the future.

    Tre RivaliResponded on January 17, 2023Ries, Do You Really Want to Hurt Me, do you really want to make me cryyy? I know 80's music isn't for everyone, but ....We Can Dance if We Want To, we can leave your friends behind... and go somewhere else. You May Ask Yourself, Should I Stay or Should I Go? But we won't tell you to Beat It. So Turn Around Bright Eyes, and Don't Stop Believing, because our playlists are not always a Blister in The Sun, Ya Gotta Have Faith, it's not The End of the World As We Know It. Thanks the kind words :)

My wife and I shared a bolognese pasta dish and three side dishes of brussel sprouts, broccolini, and crispy potatoes and each dish was delicious. We will definitely be coming back on our next visit to Milwaukee.

    Food was outstanding. My companion and I shared appetizer, salad, and main course. No complaints. We were assured sharing was more than OK. However, serving staff neglected to provide spoons that would allow sharing, and provided silverware consisted only of fork and knife. Small matter, but it was an inconvenience, and servers should be aware and sensitive to the need for tableware needed for sharing menu items. Otherwise, quality of food was extraordinary.

    Despite notifying with the reservation that one person had celiac disease, and discussing the same with our server, the entree was served full of gluten. A New Years Eve of severe suffering followed.

    Our first experience at Tre Rivali was fantastic, however, this time I was disappointed with the slow service (almost 30 min until we received our initial drink order), as well as the food quality. The Risotto Dumplings had little to no flavor and the Olive Oil Cake came to the table dry and almost frozen.

    Most of the food was delightful and would come back to have it again. Server seemed inexperienced and the food runner just dropped the food at the table and split quick without saying anything. We actually thought they forgot some dishes until the server showed up with the rest of our food about 20 mins later.

    Great octopus and mussels, the champagne was flat AF after we asked for a new bottle to be opened and blatantly got ignored. Smelled like a hotel restaurant. Hotel restaurant ambience.

    Tre RivaliResponded on December 27, 2022And I always thought that smell was the wood burning grill! Sorry about the bubbles Barb. Sounds like we dropped the ball in replacing that glass. Next time you come in, please reach out (I sent my email along in private message) and I will have a complimentary sparkler waiting for you. Look forward to making it up to you.

    We were met warmly at the front then taken to a perfect table for a hearing impaired person. Lindsey served us well, never rushed us, and brought all things in a timely way. The chessboard was delicious. A great variety. Our beet salads were large and flavorful. Took some home. My pasta dish was perfectly prepared and so tasty. It was a wonderful meal. We’ll be back soon.

    Tre RivaliResponded on December 23, 2022Thanks so much for joining us for dinner. I'm glad you liked the beet salad - one of my favorites too! And we are delighted that the cozy table in the back worked out for you. We can't wait to welcome you back.

    Server was very friendly and good, but the food was horrible. The beet “salad” is a bowl of half cooked cold beets, no lettuce. I had the bursts pizza which was covered in some type of oil, it was terrible. Good menu, but horrible execution, wouldn’t return.

    Tre RivaliResponded on December 27, 2022Chris, I apologize if our menu listing of the beet salad ingredients was not clear. Especially sorry we did not find out you weren't happy with the pizza. The oil is from the n'duja sausage which releases a chili infused oil when cooked. It's part of the spicy kick it delivers. While it's a favorite of many guests, it is not for everyone. I just wished we found out while you were here. I'll tell you what, on your next visit, I will happily offer a different pie with our compliments. Thanks

    Terrific restaurant with well thought out and beautifully presented food. We had the Lamb Kufta appetizer, which I hope never leaves the menu. Generous portion of spicy lamb sausage on flatbread with tzatziki sauce…just about perfect. The Osso Buco entree was everything you’d expect from this iconic dish, and the bolognese pasta was a dream. Love this place!
