I loved Trio’s individual house-baked lasagna in the past. Hadn’t had some for six months. Extremely disappointed! The lasagna is now a microwaved pile of mushy pasta. I used to be warned the lasagna would take 20-25 minutes to bake. Not this time and it arrived in 10 minutes. Had the same fast heat dissipation as other microwaved dishes.
I don’t know if this was because it was a Sunday and the owner wasn’t there, or it is now the common prep procedure. Anyway, I won’t have it again.

Too loud to enjoy a quiet evening. Food was terrific, service even better. Parking is a pain but not terrible. Great Restaurant.

A very enjoyable evening. This place is such a popular neighbourhood spot, and full every evening, that it can be quite noisy at times. The carpaccio and caprese salad we ordered as appetizers were as delicious as our main course pizza with its fabulous crust. Service consistently good.

The food was excellent, but the service was lacking. Our waiter did not come around to ask if we wanted dessert or coffee. We called him over to order coffee, but he did not ask if we wanted a dessert menu. Still, the food was very good, although rather pricey.

Totally disappointing on this visit. Had booked days in advance and booked downstairs as I DO KNOW that by the time food is walked up the stairs past the cold front door and placed on a counter for a server to find and then serve, it is bound to be at medium temperature at best when you do get it. Sure enough, it happened again. To make it worse, when we arrived i was told in front of our out of town guest that BECAUSE I booked through Open Table we will be seated up stairs. My pasta quantity was small, both my wife and guest sent their meals back for warming and they came back the same!!! Perhaps I will try them again, but unfortunately can't book through Open Table. Downstairs has been very fine in the past.

Nice smaller, intimate restaurant. Food was nice too but felt it was a bit on the pricey side for what you got. Wine was nice but no reasonable bottles in the $30-$40 price range for those of us just wanting to get out of the house. Plus portions were inconsistent. Two people I dined with had reasonable portions but mine and another were disappointingly small. Don't get me wrong, I am not about large portions, but I ordered the special which was a squash stuffed ravioli. It tasted nice but was more expensive than other dishes on the menu and was served as four thin smaller pieces with no compliments. Wasn't looking for a big meal but even with a $40 shared appetizer, I left hungry. Reasonable atmosphere, nice food but value due to price and portion is questionable.

Usually a great restaurant with great food- one of our favourites in the area.

Valentine’s Day they had a set menu. Bad idea I think. Didn’t get our apps for 45 mins, and got the wrong ones. Over cooked meat and fish. Undercooked pasta. Smoky restaurant by the nights end with people complaining. We were there for 2.5 hrs. A bad night. They gave us a complimentary grappa which was appreciated.

Went to Trio for Valentine’s Day.
Didn’t know it was a fixed price menu.
Trio is one of our favourite restaurants in the area.
We’ve been there many times and had great service
and food. Unfortunately this time was not the case.
We were forgotten! The kitchen staff were overwhelmed.
The wait staff disorganized.
Food was delayed in being served. 1 hour or more and
was not up to their standard.
An expensive evening with unfortunate results:
Suggestion- don’t do something you’ve never tried before
unless you have some professional guidance.

We used to go to Trio often but unfortunately the food has gone downhill. The pizza isn’t as good as it used to be. It took a while for the waiter to bring us the bread and it was just pizza crust with some oil. It used to have rosemary and roasted garlic and used to be delicious. We sat upstairs and it was very loud. We have been disappointed the last few times. Too bad because it was our go-to neighbourhood restaurant.

The weather was very cold and snowy. They sat us on the main floor at a cozy table and the entry door was kept closed and access was through a secondary door to keep it warm.
All four of us ordered different dishes with appetizers, all the food was great and fast. Great value, wine & service.

I was so disappointed as we asked about the special verses the Pasta de Mari on the menu. Etc. The waiter assured us that the special was the best decision. We were shocked to find out the bill was so much!!!!
Why doesn’t someone mention the price. The de Mari was $23.95 we were charged $40,00 for the “special”
Not happy.
Sorry

I have been going to Trio for quite a while and this is the first time I was extremely disappointed. I am hoping it was just a "one off" for this restaurant. The service was horrible!!! The food was bland. My party and I had to ask 3 x for the bill and it took 20 mins to finally get it. Our coats were on and we were standing at the table and all we got were stares from the other staff and the owner. The server seemed to bring everyone their bill except ours and came to our table last. There was nobody left in the restaurant. I am assuming it was the owner that came over to our table as he saw we were not happy in the least, and did NOT offer any apology for the wait, did not offer us anything, dessert, coffee, wine...NOTHING... this is bad customer relations. When we told him we were waiting all this time for the cheque all he could do was shake his head and say I know, I know. This is not how you keep clientele in a very competitive market. Very disappointing.
