We dined at Tre Scalini this evening (11/22/2016). We have visited Panama City many, many times in the past 15 years or so ... and this is probably one of the best meals we have had here ... possibly one of the best meals we have had. Everything from the salad to the corvina to the lemon pie were excellent.... More

Food is very good and service very good - You will not leave thinking its the best meal of your life but it is a great place and wine by the bottle is not overpriced.

If there had been more than just us in the restaurant (but Panama were playing at home against Mexico!) this would have been excellent. We were staying nearby and came across this by chance. The service was great, food tasty and the whole restaurant was elegantly decorated - a bit of refinement in Panama! The only disappointment in the meal... More

I had the ravioli and a really good glass of wine. Nothing earth shattering but it wasn't bad either. The bread used for the bruschetta was too chewy...i like it a little more toasted.

I recently visited Panama and stayed across the street from Tre Scalini. I went there two nights and both times was treated with outmost courtesy and the food was exquisite! I had salmon the first time and corvina the second time. I strongly recommend the restaurant!

Had a great dinner with my wife. Food was good and the service was good. It was also within walking distance of the Hyatt Place.

I thought the food was quite delicious and the service was fine. I ordered the Crumbed Eggplant, followed by the Primavera Pasta and finished my meal with a scrumptious Pecan Pie with Icecream for dessert. No complaints from me or my party of my four!

My husband and I ate at Tre Scalini with three friends. The food was adequate. The server asked me, as an offhand comment, would we like bread? I said that would be nice. He brought us burned bread in a bread basket. We had asked for separate bills for each couple. The server brought one combined bill and when we... More

A bit on the pricey side for what you get, but the food was good. Service was a bit spotty. Standard Italian fare with no surprises.
