Tre Monte

Once again my hound posters haven't let me down...went to Tre Monte for the first time last night. EXCELLENT. DC and I split an order of mussels marinara-they were perfectly tender and free of any grit, loads of garlic and fresh basil...perfect. Followed by a caesar which was fine, nothing earth shattering except the enormous portion. The freshly grated parm tableside would have been preferable to the smaller grained grated on salad but it was fine just the same. I had fettucini with scallops and procuitto in a cream sauce which is a total deviation for me entree wise all the way around. I never order pasta and I never order cream sauce but this dish was fantastic. DC had shrimp scampi which I did not sample. I also ordered a side of sauteed spinach, again good but not great but I can forgive easily given the rest of the meal. We had a lava cake to finish which was over done but again...hey for $50 a person including two glasses of wine each (loads of leftovers) and a generous tip I'll definitely be back. Only truly negative comment-the demeanor of the owner and the waitress-brusque, unfriendly...
