Especially good tomato tartlet, also escarole-celery salad, carrot gnocchi. Desserts good for sharing.

We enjoyed our dinner at Tre Rivali. It was my third time dining there, second time for dinner. First, the food is excellent. We like sharing a few dishes. We tried the Chef’s special on both dinner occasions and they did not disappoint. I also highly recommend the charred octopus. It is one of our favorite items on the menu. I also like that they offer a few veggie dishes that are not just salad. I think it is often harder to prepare veggies and make them “exciting.” The spicy broccolini were great and complimented our meal. We usually don’t get dessert, but had to try it since the chef started out in pastries. Wow! Amazing. Both the Apple almond crostata and the sticky toffee pudding desserts were heavenly. Last but not least, our server was excellent. She was energetic and offered great recommendations. This is becoming one of our favorite places to dine.

Food was good. A bit pricey- as was the wine list. Nice atmosphere. Would recommend the olives ,meatballs, and octopus on the smaller plates. Order a beer or mixed drink- the wine are too pricey.

Excellent food and service! Entrees were delayed so they brought us each a complimentary additional glass of wine while we waited. Will definitively go back!

Wasn’t super hungry went after a show, almonds , tomatoes tart and soup were good. Cocktail was decent but not worth 17$. Would’ve liked to eat more of the menu but wasn’t feeling it. Also it is set up more like a brunch place than a dinner place. Place is serviceable for a slightly nicer than average night out.

The food was very good, locally sourced cheeses, sharable small plates and individual entrees available. There were managers walking the floor throughout the night, and stopped by our table to check in. Energetic atomosphere, quite busy on a Saturday evening. We will be back to explore more of the menu.

The food was very good and deserts were excellent. Staff was friendly and accomodating. We were allowed to move tables after being placed next to kitchen. I wouldn’t call it a romantic atmosphere, but it is a very pleasant place to eat with noise.

Dined recently with 2 friends. Service was friendly and professional, the atmosphere was clean, modern and comfortable, drinks were excellent, food was excellent. The only thing holding me back from 5 stars is parking. There is not a dedicated parking area or valet. Street parking is always in short supply in the neighborhood. There are several nearby parking structures, with a lot of available parking, however they can be kind of pricey in my opinion. For example I paid $8.00 to park for a 2 1/2 hour meal. Maybe they could look at validating parking, or arrange a discounted fee at one of the lots. Other than parking, this is an excellent option for dining.

I had dinner with my boyfriend at Tre Rivali to celebrate his birthday! The food was absolutely delicious and the service was explicit. I totally recommend this restaurant for either a date, special occasion, birthday celebration or just to sit down and have a great dining experience. P.s. the dessert menu is very diverse and super tasty.

I was seeking a new restaurant to celebrate my dad birthday. Entering the restaurant I was blown away how nice the place looked I knew I picked a winner. The food was awesome and unique as well as the deserts. The restaurant treated my dad to a dessert item on the menu. And finally the supervisor wished my dad a happy birthday on our way out. My parents kept raving about the place all the way home. Thank you

While the service here was friendly and fast, the food definitely was not worth the price. My boyfriend got the pork belly pizza which tasted like rubbery pizza hut pizza. I got the cheese ravioli which was better, but still mediocre at best.

We were a party of 7 and much appreciated the “back room” which seemed to be set up for just such larger groups. The lighting was very bright-would have been great to tone it down 30-40%. We appreciated the conversation friendly atmosphere in this room.
Our server was very nice. Perhaps she was trying to give us extra time to order-it seemed that there were long pauses between first interaction and drink orders and then drink orders and food orders. She definitely missed opportunities to upsell us.
Food: the mussels were spectacular, best we have ever had. Mushroom pizza was very good. Scallop crudo was attractive and fresh; not quite “there”. Beef cheeks special was very tasty.
Would give Tre Rivali another try when we are next in town.
