    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.

    Tulia was all around fantastic. The food was delicious and fresh. Our waitress Kate was great. Awesome on recommendations but a wonderful personality that brought it all together. The ambiance was so energetic and happy. They didn't rush you at all through dinner which made the experience that much better. Overall everything was Fantastic!

    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 are year round residents so we avoid most of the great restaurants during season. We finally went to Tulia in June and this is our third time back! Unique menu, great appetizers that you will not find anywhere else...and the pasta! Wow! Foie Gras sauce and other unique flavors make this a must do place!!

    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!

    The best Gnoccis I've had since my Nonna made them. Everything is fresh and homemade. Drinks are innovative. Staff is above competent. They actually make you feel like you're family. The introduction to dinner is always fresh caponata with CRUNCHY bread. A must for tourists and "we" year rounders!!! Go there!!!!

    With so many restaurants on 5th Avenue it can be hard to choose, so take it from a self proclaimed food critic, Tulia should be high on your list if you like great Italian food and excellent service. The bread and caponata are just the beginning of a great meal. The knowledgeable servers can easily direct you to an entree that you will enjoy.

    The food here is always enjoyable but the owners need to invest in proper wine storage refrigerators. On four different dining occasions when fine wine from the reserve list was purchased it was served hot. It diminishes the greAt food and the overall experience.

    If you're in Naples, don't miss eating here. Our server was fantastic and described the day's additions beautifully. Before we ordered they brought out our bread with eggplant caponata, olive oil, and Parmesan. We began with a roasted beet and peach salad, followed by agnolotti with peas, then a branzino, then a ribeye with buttermilk fried onion rings. Sweets did not disappoint either. The tiramisu was the best I have ever had. My wife had the ice cream sandwich which was snickerdoodle cookies, hazelnut ice cream, chocolate shavings and a warmed Nutella dipping sauce. Oh and the Tuscan chianti ... Just loved it all!

Problem is they keep changing the menu so we can never get caught up. Food is amazing and brings back memories of our last trip to Italy. Can't wait to try their Sunday family meal.

    Tulia did not disappoint! Once seated, we were served fresh bread and eggplant tapenade. I could have made dinner out of that! Our server, JC was fabulous. She knew the menu and was most helpful with descriptions and recommendations. Some "Unusual" appetizer choices. Be daring...try one. The homemade pasta is not to be missed. Loved the garden pizza. Wish I had room for dessert. We will go back....often!
