Tre - Pizza, Pasta & Beer Garden
A Freehold, NJ Restaurant Review
Fare: Italian pasta/pizza
Overall Rating: N/A - A casual dining eatery, not rated as a fine, high end dining restaurant
Noise Level: Very High during peak hours
Very attractive industrial chic decor.
Energetic setting with live music, games, and happy hour.
Poor Acoustics, during peak times the noise level can get very high making conversation difficult.
Recommended For: Diners who enjoy crispy crust, brick oven pizza with a beer in an industrial chic, energetic setting.
Not Recommended For: Diners who enjoy high end pasta dishes, served with huge portions in a low key, BYOB setting.
Recommended dishes: The Brick Oven Pizza; The Salsiccia E Rabe with pasta, Italian sausage, broccoli rabe, garlic, oil, and chili - orechetti; and The Panino sandwiches.
Liquor: Full alcohol with a good selection of craft beers and wines.
Tre Pasta & Beer Garden is a popular place for people who enjoy pizza and a beer with lively. industrial chic ambiance.
Many of the patrons come to meet up with friends for sporting events and games, They have an array of large display TV's, a jukebox, bocci, and skee ball. During the football season they have the NFL Ticket on all screens
The restaurant is owned and operated by Dennis Tafuri, Rob Kash and Joe Mosco, the same group that owns the Metropolitan Cafe in Freehold, and Rosalita’s Roadside Cantina, and Nonna’s Citi Cucina in Manalapan.
The decor is attractively done up with high open ceilings, stone block walls, open kitchen and a large bar.
They offer a casual Italian menu featuring crispy crust, Neapolitan style, brick oven pizza and pastas using fresh artisanal ingredients, including imported Italian meats and cheeses . They serve European Trattoria style portion sizes that are smaller than American portion sizes.
Menu entrees are less than stellar, not up to par with the crispy crust, Neapolitan style, brick oven pizza ---- and the ambiance
Service is very friendly and welcoming, though during busy periods it tends to slow down.
During the warmer months there is outdoor dining on their attractive outdoor beer garden with picnic tables, and rustic bench seating around a fire pit --- great for relaxing and hanging out.
TRE is not recommended for kids. They do not offer a kids menu.
Live upbeat music is provided on Thursday, Friday, Saturday evenings beginning at 9pm, and during Sunday brunch with low key Jazz Bass/Jazz Guitar music.
Tre is open seven days/week
The Kitchen is open Monday-Wednesday; 11:30 am - 10:30 pm;
Thursday -Saturday; 11:30 am - 11:30 pm
Sunday;- 11:00 am - 9:30 pm
Energetic Happy Hour from 3:30 - 6:30pm with good discounts.
