Trio Ristorante & Pizzeria Ratings and Reviews
The quality of the food, service and value was outstanding! I was there with my fiance, neice and his parents and having eaten all over the world, this little gem if a place impressed them very much. We will definitely return. Thank you for a very memorable experience. Great way to start our Costa Rican vacation.!
To begin with the service was terrible.
When we arrived they were all over us to look at the menu. No time to talk .
When we ordered they gave us a dirty look because two of us were sharing a main.
Then the server disappeared totally.
Dinner came food was okay.
The owner manager came over to chat but was incredibly rude, don't know why.
When the bill came we were shocked to see how much the "special" entree was. it was so ridiculously overpriced.
I think we will never order a special again before asking the price.
It was totally out of the regular entree selections.
We will never return to this restaurant.
Real Italian - finally !
Excellent quality food, prepared properly, great flavours - one of the best in the City
Server was exceptional - she's even Italian like the Chef - rare to see these days in Italian restaurants in Toronto
We're going back next Thursday !
This is a good restaurant. However --- we were seated with our friends and had heard the specials and were choosing our wine. There was an argument at the entrance between a man (who turned out to be the owner) and the staff person who had seated us. They eventually told us that we had to move, because "people who come in three times a week want this table". We were not impressed at being treated so shabbily. There was no offer of a glass of wine or a huge apology. The owner needs lessons in how to finesse such a request. We spent almost $300 on dinner and wine. they did comp one dessert and one coffee in the end. too little too late.
My wife and I find it almost impossible to go anywhere else in the neighborhood because we know that we will always enjoy Trio.
On this occasion, I requested (via Open Table) tiramisu with a single candle to celebrate my wife's upcoming birthday. It was delivered to our table flawlessly. Perfectly timed. No big production. Little tears of joy. Couldn't be happier.
We thoroughly enjoyed the fresh, creamy taste of the Burrata and tomato appetizer, served with more fresh basil would put it over the top. (A definite must-try!)
The calamari was not enjoyable as it tasted like the squid was frozen and had been dunked in a plain, store-bought batter and deep fried. (Avoid it.)
The salmon (special) was deliciously crusted in a breadcrumb-herb mixture and cooked to absolute perfection. It was served on a bed of quinoa and vegetables that was also very tasty and fresh.
The shrimp and pasta (special) was extremely overpriced. Unfortunately we didn't find out the price until the bill arrived. It was $39 - yikes! Perhaps that is the reason why the waitress didn't mention the price when she announced the list of chefs specials. Three jumbo (though not very flavourful) shrimp were served alongside pasta with a tomato-based sauce.
The Trio scallopini consisted of delicate veal served with a cream-based sauce flavoured with three types of mustards rosemary and cognac. (Highly recommended.)
The grouper was tasty but the serving was meager (approximately 70 grams of fish).
Tiramiso had only 1 layer of mascarpone custard, and was lacking in flavour. Perhaps more coffee or liqueur in the crust would give it a bit more punch.
I love love love this local gem! Never once have we had a meal that was anything less than delicious plus the service is always impeccable. The orecchiette pasta and the beet carpaccio are two of my fav's. The bread they serve with a mouth watering topping has my mouth salivating at the thought. Haven't been you don't know what you are missing!
The owner is also amazing at picking the best wines at a reasonable price point too!
Very good Italian food but in a very noisy environment where tables are tightly packed.
Barely heard our server tells us about the specials and conversation among the 4 of us was tough. Family tells her experience has been different.
Having said this, the food was tasty, wine options were great, but found the dessert options not very innovative. Had a pasta dish with huge and generous amount of shrimps which could have used a bit more flavour to punch up the tomato sauce. The mushroom/spinach salad was delish. Would go back, perhaps not on a Saturday night when it doesn't seem so hectic.
Held a 50th surprise birthday party here in October and it was outstanding. Food and service were top notch. The fixed price menu was a very good deal and the food was served hot and all at once. Good selection to choose from and my guests love the antipasto, pasta and fish and steak options.
Many thanks Erin, a fabulous waitress and Eduardo chef and owner...you are both the best.
