    A great outside table; a knowledgeable waiter, attentive staff, refilling water glasses throughout the meal. Best burratta I've had for an appetizer - delicious. The dessert was heavenly - not only a terrific tiramisu, but also a black cherry with chocolate drops (teeny, just to taste) gelato! GO

    We stopped in for an early dinner to allow us to enjoy the sunset on the beach later. the outside table was perfect and the service was cordial and prompt. We chose a selection of foods to share. We especially liked Fr. Michael's pizza and the home made ricotta with pears. We will return.

    Our waiter was wonderful, food was delicious and everyone was extremely attentive (they came over when we needed something not when we didn't). The bread with the caponata to start was a nice touch. We got the burratta mozzarella and caramelized Brussels sprouts to start and Gnocchi, and the Rigatoni Bolognese and both were delicious .

    The ambiance in this restaurant is very Tuscan, which I found to be quite appealing. Every dish was impeccably displayed and delicious! The Zucchini Blossoms were delicious! They reminded me of the ones that my grandmother used to make. The restaurant staff were all very friendly and efficient. I would definitely recommend Tulia to anyone looking for a superb place to have dinner. Can't wait to go back!

    This is an excellent restaurant, very authentic dishes. The wait staff is the best, Stanley was very attentive with a great knowledge of the menu. Everything on the menu is delicious, and the drinks are the best too. The wine list has a great selection, perfect for pairing with all the entrees. I have been her 6 or 7 times and can't wait to go back. The stuffed squash blossoms are a treat not to miss

    It was fantastic! Not only was the food beautifully prepared, it was different than you would find on menus, making it fun and exciting. The eggplant saponata(?) served with the bread was delicious. We arrived early and the noise level was minimal. As the evening became later, it did become slightly noisy.

    The menu reminded me of our a special trip to Italy. Some of the food I chose brought back memories as well, for example the squash blossoms. My salmon had grill marks that tasted burned tho not under cooked. My friend with salmon didn't have the problem. We ate outside this time on a lovely night. The service was excellent tho the food not as good as our first visit.

    Tulio was highly recommended to me during my visit to Naples and it didn't disappoint -- except for the fact that I did write to say that this was a special occasion (my birthday) and I wanted as nice table as possible, my message was ignored. Aside from that, the food was wonderful, nice wine options and the service was warm and attentive. The food was extraordinarily fresh and authentic. Had I had more time in the region, I would have revisited. And, upon re-visiting the region, I will definitely come back, as well as recommend to others. Though it was a rainy night, the atmosphere was still cozy and warm.

    The 6 of us loved our meals and our waiter Michael was so very good. Did well on recommending and describing the pizza's and making sure that we were well taken care of. The only problem that I had was that I specifically made an outside reservation and was not told that that would not happen. I made the reservation well in advance so there shouldn't have been a problem. I wanted our guests to experience outside dining on Fifth and because out reservation was at 8:30 I felt it should have been honored. We were on time as I confirmed the reservation the day before.

    From the innovative cocktails to the homemade pastas and delectable entrees, this restaurant will not let you down. The ambiance makes you feel like you stepped into someone's home; and I definitely can't wait to visit again! The bartenders were more like chemists and allowed us to sample some of the wines before committing. Dining there was FUN!

    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.
