Wood-fired gourmet pizzas with fresh, daily-made sauces and an assortment of toppings are what make Trio A Brick Oven Cafe, or Trio for short, a unique eating experience.

Trio, the family Italian restaurant, is located in the heart of Downtown Greenville. The restaurant is open Monday through Wednesday 11:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m and Thursday through Saturday 11:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.

The casual business atmosphere adds to the ambiance of the restaurant. Trio offers a great environment to celebrate any occasion or to hang out with your friends.

When customers enter the restaurant their eyes are immediately drawn to the brick oven on the back wall.

Tables and booths, lighted by gas lamps, fill the brick-walled restaurant with gas lanterns lighting the room.

At the far end of the restaurant, guests are able to see the pizzas going into the famous brick oven while they enjoy their complimentary parmesan bread.

The restaurant offers a variety of food to meet any craving you might have. The menu offers dishes from salad to pizza to pasta all under $20.

Trio also offers a gluten-free menu and gluten-free substitutes.

One server at Trio said the most popular items on the menu are the restaurant’s pizzas and calzones.

Customers can choose from 14 different pizzas including Southwestern, which is $14, Cheeseburger Pizza for $12, Goat Cheese for $15, B.L.T. for $12 and Hawaiian for $13.

Customers can order calzones for less than $10, such as Quattro Fromaggio, Ham Florentine and Chicken, Broccoli & Cheddar. 

For under $10 customers can buy a wrap of their choice, which includes either sweet potato fries or the soup of the day. For $2 more customers can get either macaroni and cheese, Lobster Bisque or a fruit cup.

There are also many appetizers available on the menu such as wood-fired wings for $10, bruschetta and sun-dried tomato feta dip for $9 and a plate of fresh fruit for $8.

If customers still have room for dessert, Trio has a menu they can order from to top off their meal.

For $8, customers can purchase chocolate lava cake, which is chocolate-filled chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream topped with whipped cream and chocolate syrup.

Reese’s pie, a Bananas Trio, cheesecake, tiramisu and crème brûlée are also available.
