·Dined on October 6, 2017

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.

Food was amazing. I had the caprese salad with burrata as an app, which was so light and perfect, and the orecchiette as my main. The pasta was al dente and the sausage was well cooked. The server was attentive without hovering throughout the evening. Overall, a great meal and enjoyable restaurant experience.

The website indicates reasonable pricing. Nope. It is a nice neighborhood place, but is NOT that reasonably priced. Dinner for 2: only 1 app salad, 2 entrees, 1/2 litre of wine and 2 cappucinos (no dessert) = $142 including tax and tip. And you don't even get Open Table points when booking through Open Table?? It was excellent service and a lovely little place, but if I'm looking for more reasonably priced Italian...I'll look elsewhere in the 'hood.

Food-wise, it was a mixed experience on Saturday night. There were 6 of us dining. Two had the past and shrimp , one had the lamb chops and both dishes were good. The lamb shank proved disappointing since the diner (who orders this dish wherever he goes) felt it was quite bland, and a real disappointment. The diner who had the salmon trout with pasta felt the fish was dry and over cooked. The wait staff were advised about the lamb shank (after the dish was consumed). Prices are in the mid to high thirties therefore would seem to be overpriced.
