Tre Scalini Ristorante Restaurant Review

: Chandeliers, decorative chairs painted in warm peach tones, and tidy white tablecloths bring an element of Victorian romance to the mezzanine and main floor dining area at this trattoria. The bar area, where cool white and steel tones prevail, is an additional option for patrons looking for more casual dining environs. The menu consists of standard regional Italian fare, well prepared and often with haute culinary accents. Try pastas such as the pappardelle al telephono, wide egg noodles tossed with lobster in a light pink sauce, or go for the astice gambero risotto, savory crawfish sautéed in a sherry cream sauce with peppers and onions. Desserts range from tiramisu to Arturo's apple cinnamon tart that alternates layers of sautéed apples, caramel and white chocolate crème brûlée with a cinnamon crumb topping, served à la mode.
