Tre Piani Restaurant Review: “Tre Piani” is translated as “three floors.” The first boasts a large outdoor patio and an indoor bistro with a 30-foot vaulted ceiling and a room decorated with fresh plants, French doors and a full service bar. The second floor offers fine dining in a plush setting and the third is for banquets and private parties. Just note that wherever you go in Tre Piani, the food’s terrific. Chef Jim Weaver has been the guru of Slow Food in New Jersey for decades, and his menu always reflects locally grown and produced foods. The menu is heavily Italian; mozzarella is made on the premises daily and served with tomatoes, roasted peppers and basil. There are also a healthy number of modern American dishes. An entrée standout is Berkshire pork shoulder braised in olive oil and herbs for six hours and then served with fingerling potatoes, baby artichokes and carrots. The wine list is vast, a little on the expensive side but fairly priced. Desserts are creative, making it hard to decide how to end the meal. You can’t go wrong with the individual chocolate-banana cake with banana custard and ganache.
