Very tasty food with equally tasty wine by the glass selection. Excellent waitress. We were only 1/2 way finished with our salads when the runners delivered our hot pasta... We felt rushed and asked that they hold the pastas until we finished the salads. The very sharp waitress asked them to start over and delivered fresh pastas at the appropriate time after our empty salad plates were cleared. I would go back for the delicious food!

Tre is my favorite restaurant in San Antonio. The food is always first class, at a pleasing intersection between creative foodie-ness and warm comfort. Tre’s warm atmosphere fits the menu’s strong lean toward rustic Italian. That you can find outstanding pasta and Italian ragus beside excellent fish and vegetables makes Tre a great choice for dining in San Antonio.

Tre has upped their game with a great new location and even better food. Loved sitting outside on the river on a cool Fall evening, sipping cocktsils with good friends, laughing a lot and enjoying a real local treasure.

First time at this location. Food was okay, service not that great. I’m not accustomed to my server asking if we want anything else while he’s busy performing another task nearby. Not very busy at all. I doubt they’ll be around much longer if that’s as busy as they get.

It was really lovely out on the river eating. The food was good but the Bologna’s was spicier than before thus the 4 star grade but every thing else was very good. It was a bit hard to find and there is not great signage or directionals outside so hopefully they will address this issue but worth looking in to.

Location was amazing, service was great, food just lacking. When pasta and meatballs is compared less than favorably to chef boyardee you know there is a problem. A little pretentious by the chef not putting salt or pepper on the table, my taste my choice. Worth a try but will not return

I was a bit disappointed in what was offered on the menu. The salad I had with the artichoke hearts was delicious. The entree menu was just very limited. Service was great. Location and venue were both really good. It would not take much to bring this from 3 stars to 5.

We'd eaten at Tre when it was at the Fairmont in downtown San Antonio and loved it! When it moved to the Broadway location we kind of forgot about it. Now it's at the SAMA, we have a reason to visit and enjoy both! The food is exceptional!!!

Al dente all veggie pasta a carnivore would relish. Ordinary steamed artichoke but--a whole one with excellent aioli. Roasted yellow beets worked well with orange sections of the same color. Crispy trout topped with fresh and piquant salsa verde. Reasonably priced very enjoyable Italian wine. Fresh ingredients, well prepared, attentive but not in your face service. One of SA's better restaurants.

And then there is the walk from the parking lot ---- thankfully, the rain abated.

My friend and I decided to have a girl's night out, and we chose to try out Tre Trattoria at SAMA before heading out to a concert. We sat out on the patio, which we both thought was a beautiful setting looking for the river. We started with some Italian Mojitos and the handpulled mozerlla. The drinks were great, and the mozerlla was soooo good. Next we shared a ceasar salad, which were both pleased with. As our main course, we both got the Campanelle Bolognese. Our pasta bowls were wiped clean! It was delicious! In addition to great food, the staff was very friendly and attentitive. This was definitly a 5 star experience in our book. We can't wait to go back!

The food is good. Atmosphere is good. We had good service in the past but this visit the service was off. I checked in and told them I had a reservation thru Open Table but they did not record that and after lunch I got a nasty gram about not showing up for my reservation. They had changed out the wine list but then couldn't find the wines on the list. I got a glass of wine that I had ordered previously but now only sell by the bottle but when I ordered a second glass they told me they don't sell that wine by the glass and I would have to pay for the remaining bottle if I wanted a second glass. The service on this visit was not on par with service on previous visits. Not sure if that is a one off or trend. Food was consistent with previous visits. Previous visit they had a fix price menu option for lunch but noticed that was not offered on this visit. This is why I am giving them an average rating.

While we like having Tre at the museum, our lunch left a lot to be desired. I think the managers haven’t figured out how to do quick simple lunches where people can be in and out in less than an hour. Salads with chicken or fish would be great and also paninis would be a nice alternative. The Italian “Sammy” on the menu had such chewy bread and un-flavorful meats with soggy tomatoes, it was practically inedible. Pizzas are generally good but not everyone wants that for lunch. I hope they tweak their menu and find their stride.

The service was wonderful, Heather was very attentive, professional and accommodating. The Food was outstanding, the pulled Mozzarella and Deviled Eggs were fantastic as well as the Charcuterie tray. Salads, Smoked Gouda Pasta and Pizza were outstanding. We celebrated a birthday dinner for 15 outside in the beautiful veranda/patio overlooking the San Antonio River! Great Views, Wonderful Service and Delicious Foods! Congratulations to the Dady's!!

Just finished eating here and I gotta say it was a BIG DISAPOINTMENT. One of it's draws is the seating area overlooking the river. We had reservations. Asked for a table outside and was told they were reserved. Yet as we left more than an hour later, two of those tables were still unoccupied.
The table we were seated at inside was poorly situated. Again we were told that they were booked solid, and again more than an hour later those tables were empty.
We ordered a burrata to split as an appetizer. Forty minutes later they brought the entrees. Where's the burrata? Oh...you wanted that first? (REALLY?)
Michele enjoyed her chicken. The family style risotto side dish was also very good.
Unfortunately I can't say the same for the Wagyu sirloin. It was just a big ball of beef that looked more like a filet than anything else. There was nothing remarkable about it taste or texture-wise, other than because of the thickness (seriously - was the size of a tennis ball) of it there was no way to cook it to the requested medium temperature, so it was blood rare in the center.
I would have brought it to the attention of management, but there just didn't seem to be anyone in charge, which is weird because it is Saturday night and frankly the place wasn't crowded, despite whatever the hostess said.
I know that Chef Jason Dady has a long history of success here in S.A., and we used to go to the other Tre when it was over on Bitters and enjoyed the food a lot.
We eat out a LOT and always love trying and recommending new places (like Spoon, just the other evening) all over town, and I was really looking forward to trying this new version of Tre. And if you follow me on FB you know that it's rare for me to give negative comments. But in the end I'd be hard pressed to find a reason to return to Tre. Take a pass on this one.

What a find. Jason Dady has done it again. We were down visiting the museum on Saturday and decided to have lunch here. Made a quick reservation and glad I did. It was packed upon arrival. They've done a great job with the space. Very authentic Italian farm house look.

Food did not dissappoint. From the fresh salad to the Fusilli with summer corn and heirloom tomatoes, all was perfect.

Very disappointed. We have been regular customers of this restaurant for years. A recent change in location and some change in the menu leave a lot to be desired. Getting to the restaurant is a pain with parking pretty far removed from the entrance to the restaurant. particularly My wife having to walk quite a distance in heels and get crushed granite between her toes ... not paved.

We were greeted with the “how are we doing”, pet peeve, which always sound so insincere. Noise level very high despite not being busy, I am also not a fan of open kitchens and the temperature was uncomfortably warm inside the restaurant.

The food was not as good as usual. The mozzarella was well prepared. Second course brought out before appetizer, purposefully did not order entrées right away to give us appropriate time to finish. A family seated next to us had a similar problem with multiple plates arriving before they had finished their course, or had their plates taken away, with an awkward cramming in of things on the table.

Two of three of the pastas were heavy-handed on the salt, personal favorite of duck confit no longer an option. Hey pasta dish featuring pork belly and shrimp, while delicious, had a grand total of two shrimp, with a hefty $28 price tag

I am very sad to say that after many years of enjoying spectacular meals at this restaurant, we will not be back

Over the top umami! One of the best in the city and a must stop for anyone visiting the San Antonio Museum of Art.

Drinks—Someone cares about cocktails here. Favourite: Antico cocktail. Appropriately boozy AND refreshing. By the Glass Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc were well matched to the food.

Appetizers—artichoke is best I have ever had. Burrata with strawberries and balsamic was outstanding. Pizza is out of control good. Beans and farro were expertly crafted and generous.

Pasta—wow! Radiatore pasta with smoked Gouda was OMG fantastic! Gnocchi not far behind. Still thinking about Fusilli with corn which was heavenly.

Secondi—only tried the chicken which was juicy with a crispy skin, i .e., it was perfect!

Too full for dessert. Will return. This place is happening!

Nice ambiance, deviled eggs were a big, hit host seemed to be very inexperienced and not friendly enough for the job, waiters seemed knowledgeable about the menu. The restaurant was about half full but the kitchen was having trouble getting the food out, they were very slow and with a simple dish of spaghetti and meat balls the meat balls were burnt, the waiter was kind enough to take it off the bill. The restaurant is also very difficult to find tucked away behind the museum with very poor signage to lead you there.

We ordered the Restaurant week offering. The antipasti of yellow beets, farro & white beans was filled with extraordinary flavor! "Crispy skin" sold us on the Trout entrée and it was spectacular, dressed with capers & herbs. Would order that again and again.
Tables for 2 were a bit close together for my "personal space" limits.

My friend and I went there for Restaurant Week. It was a fixed priced menu with some options. OMG!! I have been to other fine restaurants during Restaurant Week and left hungry. Here I was getting full at the salad course. First, we we given an antipasta plate for sharing. Loved the beets! Second, I ordered the gazpacho and my friend ordered the salad. The biggest serving and best gazpacho I've ever had. Third, I had the fish which was to die for! My friend had the pasta with chicken. Pasta with shredded spicy chicken in a red sauce. It was very spicy and tasted good. Dessert was a nutella peanut butter experience. I wasn't crazy about the cake but the peanut butter mouse was very tasty. We did enjoy our meal and will definitely come back for more. That was the best $35/pp dining experience I have ever had! Tre Trattoria is now on my list of "to go to" restaurants in San Antonio.
