Tre Rivali is a vibrant restaurant, lounge and cafe. This inspired restaurant is in the heart of Milwaukee's Historic Third Ward District. The menu features Italian and Mediterranean influences. Think scratch made pasta and wood oven pizzas. Paired with craft cocktails and a well curated wine list.

    Lovely starter of grilled peaches with honey and burrata. Ricotta dumplings we dense and flavorful. Corn hash and seasonal vegetables were excellent. Penne with Bolognese was superb. Wait staff was over worked, but did not let it affect their spirits. Some people seemed unhappy with wait times. We were not in a rush, so waiting for service was not an issue with us. Will be back!

    Tre RivaliResponded on September 18, 2022Thanks for the kind words! (and patience on a very busy Sunday) I agree, that grilled peaches and burrata dish is like summertime on a plate. I can't wait for you to come back and try some of our new fall dishes we will be rolling out in the next week or two.

    We sat for 25 minutes before receiving our drinks. There was one waitress serving the entire restaurant. They were out of 2/6 things we wanted including meatballs and vanilla ice cream. We were told they could sub our vanilla ice cream for peanut butter. We were then brought heath bar ice cream instead. We were asked by 3 different staff members if we wanted dessert after our dessert order was already in. It was a 2.5 hour dinner that should have taken 1.5 hours TOPS. By the end of the meal we were begging for the check. It was a total disaster. Very sad as the first time we dined here we loved it, the second time were less impressed and the third was the nail in the coffin.

    Tre RivaliResponded on September 18, 2022So sorry to hear about your experience over the labor day holiday. We were indeed very short staffed that Sunday due to call outs and it was an exceptionally busy weekend with the Art Fair. However there are no excuses for not delivering on a great dining experience. For that I feel terrible. We take great pride in our hospitality and service but occasionally the wheels fall off the wagon. We really appreciate your patronage and hope you'll give us another try, we will take great care of you.

    We went to Dinner for our anniversary and were treated very very well. The food and service were top notch. Kristy our waitress was friendly and knew the menu very well and made great recommendations. The location of the restaurant is in a very beautiful spot. We will be returning on our next trip to Milwaukee.

    Everything about our experience at Tre Rivali was outstanding. I had made reservations for 4 and we had 2 friends come from out of town right before we were leaving - we got there to check in and when I asked if they could up our reservation by 2 people, we were told no problem! Service from the person that seated us to the waitress was amazing. The food and cocktails were delicious as always! Will be back - LOVE my Tre Rivali.

    If I want a lovely lunch or dinner in the Third Ward, Tre Rivali is my go-to place. The food is excellent, moderately priced, the restaurant is clean and beautiful, and the staff is wonderful. Smiling and always accommodating. PLUS, I can valet park my car and avoid the parking headache.

    Swordfish was delicious. Carbonara was not flavorful. Server did not engage with a smile and lacked attention to our table. Other servers and staff appeared to be very attentive. No Leinenkugel’s beers and menu lists New Glarus beer being from Amherst, WI. Will try the chicken and a pizza next time. They both looked fabulous.

    We ordered two entrees: swordfish and bucatini carbonara. Both were delicious. The swordfish was moist and beautifully seasoned and the flavors of the carbonara melded together beautifully. The wine list had a number of well priced French bottles. All in all, a great experience.

    Really bad service — our server took 30 mins to come to us and then we didn’t see her again until we asked for the check. We skipped ordering entrees because of the slow service and the app we got was meh (hummus was so dry).

    We stayed at the Kimpton Journeyman and ate at Tre Rivali for dinner. Our reservation was for 6:00 PM and we arrived a little early. We requested a table outside. The noise level was louder due to traffic and that was to be expected. The food was delicious; however, it took us over an hour to get our entrees. Probably due to the lack of help as with all businesses. Our server checked on us several times and gave us updates and the manger did as well. We are gluten free and the chef prepared meatballs without gluten just for my granddaughter, who has celiac. My husband had a steak which was very good and the other two entrees were Bucatini Carbanara along with the grilled peaches and Panzanella Salad (which the chef made with gluten free croutons). The Carbonara was very good--a little salty. My husband had to take my granddaughter up to bed as it was almost 8:30. Two of us ordered a flourless chocolate cake which was served with mango ice cream. By the time we left, we had been dining for three hours. Very good attention to detail, just a very long dining experience. Great server.

    Worst server ever didn’t come to the table. Waited an hour and half for food waited forty minutes to refill coffee . Had to get the manager to get the food after 90 minutes. Then we had to find the server to get the bill and then find the server to pay. The manager didn’t do anything but say sorry. Don’t think I will be back to be ignored by the worst server ever.

    The service was vey slow, we waited 40 min for a Coke. The food came from the kitchen very slowly and not at the same time for everyone so that half of us were finished before others could start eating. The restaurant seemed understaffed. The quality and food was good, but all the wait took away from the evening.
