Bad News – I have to say ,the food is okay and reasonably priced ,but the service is ridiculously bad . I waiter approached me four times to remove my plate while I was sopping up the sauce .Then like a wiseguy ,he said at the end ,do you want to take it home .I didn t need that wisecrack .The restaurant was empty ,as it was on my last 4 trips there ,there was no need to pressure me to leave . I asked for more bread and the same guy said "the boss said no " .I hate this place and would never return .And I mean never
Great little place with fantastic food – Tre Giovani is a pretty tiny restaurant, but the menu looked appetizing, so we asked for a table. Our waitress had a pretty thick accent and could not communicate very well with us. Aside from the slow and unaccommodating service, our experience was pleasant. Prices were decent and the food was very good. I tried a slice of pizza and thought it was delicious, as well as my chicken pasta dish. The sauce and noodles tasted very authentic and the portions were generous
Fresh and Delicious – The food here is outstanding, especially considering how reasonable the prices are. I enjoy Tre Giovanni so much and I always bring out of town guests here.
Was it a bad day for the folks at Tre Giovanni? – It certainly was not a good eating moment for me. The salad was heavy on the dressing, so sour my mouth pucked and the greens seemed a bit stale and dark. The pizza was my sad, sad lament. Two key things about me: I LOVE pizza and I HATE waste, which means I tend to finish what is on my plate. Maybe I did bad in ordering pizza by the slice -- I had two mushroom pizzas and found the slices heavy with oil, hard with congealed cheese (did they microwave my pizza?) and the mushrooms tasted and looked like they were canned. Ambience is fine and probably, if I had eaten better, I would have appreciated it more. I was too terrified after the food to try the coffee
Tres Reasonable, Great Pizza, Laid Back – (Revised) This used to be an excellent pizza "joint." The pizza with prosciutto & arugala wass to die for. Even if you to specify that you want the crust "burnt," and you remind them of this, they will deliver doughy pizza crust. On the phone, the pizza cook is cantankerous and difficult (gender issue?)...lots of pizza joints in the Village and Tre has gotten my very last order after screwing up at least 5 times (every time I have called) in the last 3 months.
very bad – I went to this place because a friend picked it - i had bad impression right from the start, because the restaurant was empty. The service was bad, nothing worse than the usual for that area. But the food was terrible, the cream sauce i had was greasy and heavy. My family is originally from Naples and I got there often to visit. I get shocked when people try to compare this food with real italian food. It's cheap, but it's not that far from cafeteria pasta.
local villager – I've worked in this neighborhood 8 years, am no stranger to good food, especially Italian, and especially in the part of the village where tre-g resides. I LOVE this little place as do those in my office! For the prices you can get delicious pizza and very tasty trattoria fare. It's frequented by NYU folks and locals and does have the casual feel of say a busy, unpretentious wine bar in Rome. The service can be mixed overall -- it is very casual and can get crowded -- but it's never stopped me from going and enjoying it all these years. I've been all over the city to cheap little Italian places with the same prices, but there is definitely something about this place that gives great bang for your buck and delicious food. If you are in the area, it's silly not to go here, you won't be disappointed!
Restaurant fit for a King! – Ok first of all the lady who said a cat jumped on her is completely a moron..I suggest getting a little older and coming on this site..you know some people actually want GOOD reviews..anyways the food was great in this and the inside is magnificent. I loved the style of the restaurant as it reminded me of a restaurant in the lower regions of Italy. As for the service it was pretty good too(I have no clue what the cat lady is talking about) I reccomend this restaurant to everyone who wants great and inexpensive food :)
Worst service ever – I went to Tre Giovani on a Sunday and had the worst service I ever: while we were eating a cat jumped on my friends lap! We asked the waitress and the guy at the counter to take it out of the room, but they simply ignored us. The food was not much better, I had a rigatoni with a very acid tomate sauce.
Good Food - Not so good service – hey - the food is tasty. I got the tri-colore pesto, friend got the pizza. Both were filling and yummy. good bread, but they only take cash, so be ware. The soup and salad look good too. The waiters, however, are typically unpleasant and non-existant when needed. But hey, that's new york!
