Restaurant had steady business when we got there. Staff was practicing all the necessary COVID-19 guidelines. We had Jonny as a server, who was also running service bar for the restaurant. He was able to multi-task between his tables and bar tickets really well.
We had the seasonal sangria, stuffies and a couple pizzas. Everything was great and came out relatively quick. Will definitely be working Trio into the "date night rotation".

Wife and I went Friday night for dinner and we definitely had a great time. You could definitely tell that the staff at Trio cared about creating a good dining experience. The staff was truly excellent at making sure we always had exactly what we needed. Also the food was delicious and was delivered in courses in a timely manner. This is how a restaurant should be run. Kudos to you guys, we will be back again.

This was our first time time here and won’t be the last. It was pretty empty on a late Sunday afternoon, but it was just the kind of place we’d like to hang out at the bar pre-Covid. No bar seating so we sat at a high top in the bar. We had: meatball appetizer, BBQ chicken pizza and fig and prosciutto pizza. Everything was excellent! Will definitely be adding this to our rotation and highly recommend. Get out and support your local restaurants!!

I had requested a booth by the fireplace and we were seated as soon as we arrived at the exact table I requested. The food came out in perfect timing right after we were finishing our appetizer. The red wine was great and overall the service was amazing by all that helped us including the Manager ! Terrific experience. Aloha

We had a very good meal!! The cod is always fabulous there.

The room was a little cold...because we were the first seating for the evening?

Given the current difficulties facing certain businesses, I am more than understanding if things are not perfect, however, it is hard to excuse very poor service when the restaurant is basically empty. We were seated and not greeted for some time. No menus, no water, no hello. Once our food was served, our waitress stood at another table (not one in her section) talking for a long time while we ate without beverages and were finished by the time she came to see how our meals were. We had to catch the hostess to ask for water. We had to ask the manager for menus. The menu is uninspired and the food barely passable. Mind you, this was not my first time here. I was very disappointed. The calamari was absolutely fine. My pork was dry, overcooked and tasteless. My companion’s steak was ok but the rest of the food on his plate was cold.
The bill was $85 for 2 dinners, one appetizer and tap water. No thank you.

Love all the Newport Group restaurnts, we go to Avvio most often . Went to Mass and then out for dinner at Trio, must say it was a very nice night. Waitstaff very attentive and pleasant, food was great....more meatballs please. We noticed all the precautions taken and felt safe despite Covid. Hope to get back soon.

Love Trio but disappointed they changed Cod dish to include beans instead of risotto. Risotto n Cod was to die for.

Limited menu. Mediocre food. Lack of Italian dishes as from the decor it appears to be an Italian restaurant. We ordered the chopped salad but received a wedge salad. No apology for the mixup

Delicious food - calamari and bread were great starters. Flank steak was beautifully cooked to order and the outdoor patio was enjoyable even in the colder weather. Glass of wine (Pinot Noir) was not so great, but I’m certain that had I asked to send it back the server would have obliged.

Another great meal at a Newport Restaurant group favorite. Trio has changed up their menu from the summer to include a beer/wine, appetizer and entree for $26 midweek. Meatballs and bolognese were both phenomenal. Great deal.

The food was very good, and the service outstanding. The friend that I was with asked us to be moved since there was a family next to us with a small child. She is worried about the virus. We were moved to the large dining room. A little chilly, but the server put the heat on for us.
