    I have always enjoyed going to Tulia. The atmosphere is inviting and the food is usually excellent. However, my guest and I had the stuffed pumpkin pasta (the special pasta for the night)and instead of being savory, it was sweet. It was like eating a dessert. While very tasty, it wasn't what we expected when we ordered it.

    I suppose you would classify this as an Italian restaurant. But this is NOT your typical Italian menu. Thanks to an extremely creative chef, the menu offerings are unique. You may have to step out of your comfort zone to try some of the items (liver pate...with a fried egg...on toast points....with bacon?????) But it is worth the try. (The liver is awesome!!!). We were fortunate to be there an evening when one of the specials was spinach ravioli with pumpkin something filling....OMG - it was incredible. The best news is our waitress informed us it was being added to the menu in a couple of weeks. It's worth a trip there just to try it. WOW! We WILL be back.

    We really enjoyed the food here at Tulia. We were a bit over dressed not knowing how casual it was and the noise level was tough for a romantic dinner. Our server was fantastic and the service could not have been better. I suggest it for a nice outdoor dining experience, bar food, or family get together. It was a bit tough to hear each other with tables close and noise around us.

    I have been hearing about this restaurant for many months now and was so glad to finally try it for myself. We met friends visiting from out of town for dinner and each had a great meal. For a starter, my husband and I shared the warm ricotta and peaches. It is a small portion and is absolutely delicious. Our friends had the cantaloupe dish and loved it. For dinner, I loved the beef short rib tortelloni. My husband ate every bite of his salmon. We had the yummy ice cream sandwich for dessert. I can't wait to go back again and I look forward to trying the new place the owners are opening next-door.

    We enjoyed everything about Tulia except one entree, which came as a real shocker given the restaurant's rave reviews. The Tuscan Chicken Liver and Fried Pig Ears appetizers were wonderful (never had pig ears before), a delight for the palate but not the heart. The Tortelloni with beef short rib, foie gras emulsion and marsala delighted the taste buds. Unfortunately, the chef's special for the evening, slow-cooked pork shoulder was severely over salted as was the kale. Even the oven-baked potatoes could not cut the saltiness. The selection of wine by the glass was extensive and a few cuts above the quality found in many restaurants and complemented the food nicely. Our waiter, Stanley, was very attentive.

    My husband and I went there for our 7th anniversary. The food was absolutely amazing. The service was impeccable. They timed our food to arrive perfectly. It is not a traditional Italian restaurant but every dish on the menu sounds incredible. Every bite was delicious from the appetizer to the dessert!! We both would reccomend this restaurant to anyone.

    The food at Tulia is a click different from the usual at Italian restaurants. The menu is innovative and the choices include some items that don't show up on most menus: caramelized brussel sprouts for one. There are pasta and chicken dishes for those who want to stay with familiar items. All in all Tulia provides a great dining experience.

    Very much enjoyed this dining experience recently. Incredible pasta - unique in presentation as well as taste- triangulated shapes of green ravioli with olive oil, herbs and only a hint of brown sugar. Amazing! Ever had Pig Ears? I hadn't but these were like those potato chips- having just one is impossible. Don't miss any of the pizza either. Finished with one of Chef Vincenzo's sweet creations- can't recall the name.....Mangiare! We will go back and try new things. This is a certain winning bet!

    Tulia is special. The food is outstanding, the wait staff attentive without hovering. We almost always select one or more of the Contorni to share as appetizers and Tulia's are always special.The caramelized Brussels sprouts are scrumptious and the garlic anchovy broccolini is a must! We shared the veal special (with prosciutto and cheese) and the special white pizza - both delicious.

    My Squid pasta dish was a bit spicy but chock full of chopped seafood and very flavorful. I took home half for the next day. The hogfish dish with kale was so enjoyable that my husband almost licked the dish. The server was more than helpful and attentive. A very nice night out!

    We feel that the pasta is the most authentic we have ever had in the United States. We lived in Rome for 2 years so we know real Italian food and Osteria Tulia is a very special place. We feel that they are starting to get too highly priced in their meat and special entrees but the whole feeling is wonderful especially outside as the inside can be extremely noisy when they are full/busy.

    Artichoke Ap & Brusel Sprouts way too overdone and not good. Pork Shoulder good. Pasta Meat Mix just okay. Service was fine. Mentioned my Birth Day reservation but no desert offered. Wine was nice. Not a restaurant that should have everything ala cart. Not a good value compared to other restaurants on 5th.

    Even though Naples' 5th Ave is full of Italian places, this places strives toward good authentic food. There's nothing cheesy here like fettuccine alfredo or spaghetti and meatballs. This restaurant strives to make dishes you really find in Italy, like cacio e peppe, in addition to house made ricotta and other nice touches. Oh, and Sunday nights wines are half-off. Can't beat that!
