Opened in 1994, Nicola Marzovilla's warm and welcoming restaurant has been a favorite for more than 18 years for those in search of hearty, delicious Italian specialties. Its celebrated menu draws on the regional cuisine of the Marzovillas' homeland, Puglia. Nicola's mother, Dora, prepares hand-rolled fresh pastas daily. The restaurant is famed for its all-Italian wine list (expertly selected by Marzovilla), and the adjoining Enoteca offers lighter food and by-the-glass choices as well as a nightly happy hour from 3-8pm. I Trulli is a popular destination all-year round: diners can sit by the glow of the main room's rustic fireplace in winter, while in the warmer months are treated to the lush splendor of one of Manhattan's finest outdoor garden spaces.

The food here is always top notch. Homemade pastas are the real deal, each one unique and different.
Puglian style rabbit was also a stand out. Excellent wine list, all Italian, many top level wines but a few bargains to be found. This restaurant is a bit pricey but the quality is wonderful.

I have eaten at i Trulli many times and always loved the food and atmosphere. This was my first visit since they renovated the restaurant and revised the menu. With tip, it was $55 per person. We had one glass of wine, one iced tea, two plates of pasta (pistachio ravioli and pasta with marinara), one dessert and one cup of tea. Both pasta dishes were bland and forgettable. The bread they served was stale. The dessert (chocolate cake) was either stale or over baked. We couldn’t finish it. So clearly no value for the money. They have lost something in translation with their update.

This is as close to eating in Italy as you can be and still be in NYC.
The food is fresh, authentic, and always excellent. Also their wine list complements their cuisine perfectly with many reasonably priced selections and a few exceptional values for the taking.
One of my favorite”go to” NYC gems that I highly recommend.

I would give iTrulli 4 stars except for their "pack them in " approach to seating. Three out of four of us were constantly nudged by waitstaff just trying to get to other tables throughout our entire meal. We were rewarded with free desserts at the end of our meal which were appreciated, however, we will still not return if the seating arrangements do not change. Too bad since we live just 2 blocks away.. Certainly not like the seating (or peaceful noice level) of the original iTrulli

We have been to this restaurant a few times before. The food and service are outstanding as always. The pastas are fresh and delicious. We have always been able to find street parking, which is a plus. The place is a little pricey, but we do really enjoy the food, so we mostly save this place for special occasions.

We have been big fans of i Trulli but last night was beyond disappointing. We asked three times for the air conditioning to be turned up but it never was, and we have to assume it was broken and they weren't being honest about it. People were visibly sweating through their clothes, and it was impossible to enjoy the meal under those conditions.

No air conditioning. Too hot to enjoy the food. The menu was very limited and there was only one special. Perhaps the chef was on vacation. Wait for cooler weather.

My wife and I went for our anniversary and it was lovely. We made reservations for 5:30 on a Saturday which turned out to be unnecessary, but better to be sure right? We had the place to ourselves for half an hour or so and the staff doted on us. The food was awesome. The Malloreddus is exceptionally delicious comfort food with an elegant touch, but my wife had the artichoke jalapeño crab pasta dish and it was AMAZING. I highly recommend this wonderful cozy little slice of heaven- get there early and get a table outside in the courtyard and you will have an evening to remember I guarantee.

We were there during restaurant week...the menu offered a choice of 3 courses for $42 ( very reasonable) with the option to add a fourth course for $10 additional. The $10 course was only a half portion! I also ordered the swordfish Milanese which was most definitely NOT swordfish! Somewhat disappointing...probably won’t go back.

Walking to the back, we passed orechiette being made for the next day's batch of rabbit ragu. I had it for lunch, and they were toothsome and tasty. My companion had the tagliata, which was quite tender and flavorful. The choices for Restaurant Week were varied, given that the lunch main course could have been a primo (pasta) or secondo (meat or fish) piatto. The burrata appetizer was creamy and complemented the perfectly ripe tomatoes, while the vegetable fritto misto was amazingly light. Service was friendly, and present without being over-bearing.

A must go to! Having traveled to Puglia and sampled all the cuisine there, I Trulli hold up very well. Get the Salmon Milanese as an entree and you won't be disappointed. The ricotta cheesecake was also delicious. Very close to the one my grandmother makes. I would say this is the highest compliment. The outdoor area in the back was beautiful and you will definitely feel as if you were transported out of the city.
