About

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.

I Trulli is one of my favorite Italian restaurants. The octopus appetizer is excellent. Very tender and flavorful. I always get the rabbit rage which never disappoints.

My friend and I both liked I Trulli a lot. It's a well-designed space with plenty of room for each table, an acoustic that allows for conversation, a relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and a great location. Our dishes were both simple and satisfying. Recommended.

Not authentic at all (I’m native italian and live in New York), and that’s not food from the Apulka region. My friend ordered a mozzarella with prosciutto appetizer, but she doesn’t eat prosciutto, so the waiter suggested to replace prosciutto with truffle, without specifying that would cost 30$ extra! Moreover, the waiter was very pushy on wine or cocktails, although we didn’t want any.

My first time back in over 10 years, met up with 6 friends for a Christmas get together. Bar is lovely warm & welcoming, great cocktails and great wine selection. We found the appetizers and pastas to be great, unfortunately all of us were underwhelmed by our main courses... but desserts & coffees were outstanding.


Service was great and noise level was good so that we could carry on a conversation.

I checked "Kid-friendly" because I took my seven-year-old grandson, and he enjoyed it and was very well-treated by our waiter . However, I meant friendly to kids who know how to behave in an adult atmosphere. This is NOT "a pizza joint"!

The food is truly extraordinary because the preparations are unique and creative. I’ve never been to Puglia, but if this is typical of that cuisine it is the best Italian food!

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.
