233 Haddon Ave, Westmont
Hours: 4–10 pm. Bar, 4 pm to midnight.
Style: Platter-style dining in a wine-bar setting.
Don’t Miss: To start, the wood oven romaine salad ($6) is a nice split for two—two chunks of leafy romaine roasted with croutons and doused in creamy Caesar dressing for a crisp, surprising salad. Pastas come in two sizes—small for one and large for two. The three-cheese cannelloni is cheese-stuffed pasta covered in a tasty basil-tomato cream sauce ($8 small, $12 large). Need your veggies? Try maccheroni pancetta, which comes with peas and cauliflower ($9 small, $13.50 large).
Heads Up: Treno is pushing what our server called family-style dining, though the setting is decidedly more risqué, given the hand-painted pictures of some very voluptuous ladies on the walls. It’s good for grown up groups, too. Treno has a nice selection of $5, $7, and $9 wines by the glass.
The Scoop: Treno is housed in what used to be Kitchen 233 (same owners), which was an upscale wine bar that never quite fit into an area wedged between the BYO scenes of Haddonfield and Collingswood. The new lower price points could make it a more attractive option.Click here to leave a comment
