This could have been awesome, they have all the right ingredients but sadly execution is not up to the standard it should be. Extensive menu with some interesting specials. Generous portions. About what you'd expect on the wine list. Regions, varietals and producers are well represented but the better vintages are 3.5-4x while inferior vintages are 2.5-4x. So be careful.... More

Four of us stopped into Tre Scalini for dinner after visiting a museum in New Haven. The service was wonderful from the moment we came in the door, we were seated immediately, with a window seat. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the wine list and the menu, gave us the specials and answered questions. Timing was very good, we... More

We ventured to Tre Scalini to buy a Gift Card for a friend and stayed for lunch. In brief, everything was spectacular. The house chianti, the fresh salad with beets, the thinly pounded veal and caffe latte to close the event. What a great restaurant!

We had a very enjoyable dinner. They have a very nice menu-appetizers, salads, fish, chicken, veal, beef, Pasta dishes, drinks and dessert. We started off by sharing a Caesar salad- fresh and tasty. Next we shared the Eggplant Rollatini appetizer. For my main course I had the Salmon. It was good but I thought it was a bit overpriced($25) for... More

My wife and i both ordered veal dishes and we both had issues with the meals. Both were heavily salted to the point where i could hardly eat mine. While we were eating our apps, we overheard a couple behind us that the dish was way to salty. Not only was the veal hard to cut but they gave us... More

I went here with my wife for an anniversary dinner since she had wanted to try it out. We have been to other restaurants on Wooster St in the past. The food had good flavor and the bus boy was attentive with filling our water. The portions were not "huge" as others have mentioned. It was very loud with the... More

We were here for a wedding rehearsal dinner with a group of 85. The function room was nice and we were offered a dinner with appetizer (eggplant rollatini and arancini), salad and a choice of entrees. The chicken marsala was a large portion, tender and moist. The fish was a bit bland and not well deboned. Desserts were a choice... More
