Italian
Opened in 1994, Nicola Marzovilla's warm and welcoming restaurant has been a favorite for more than 24 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 as well as a nightly happy hour from 5.30-7pm. 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.

Always a treat to return to I Trulli. The service is impeccable. Dining in their garden in the back is almost like you imagine yourself being in a European setting. The food never fails... try the mini calzones... both are delish! The lamb chops and ravioli are my favorites! You are bound to have a delicious and pleasant time here.

The food was very good and the service was also very good.

The wine was a bit pricey and we had three different bottles and none of them were that good.

The garden area was nice and we felt safe

The heated garden is a comfortable alternative to makeshift street dining. It was cozy at first, but they kept moving the heaters, so it wasn't consistently comfortable. Otherwise, very pleasant.

This place has great ambience. We sat in the covered garden on a rainy night and were most comfortable. Excellent wait staff. The food was overall good, some dishes more tasty than others. Good cocktails--long list of Negronis. I'll be back.

Im Italian and have been trying a few places in the city. In my opinion, this one really doesn’t live up to the hype. The bread and focaccia they provide was outstanding but the rest of the food was very mediocre and not comparable to other equally expensive places in the city.

My all-time favorite meatballs. So good that I ordered some as a gift for a relative recovering from minor surgery. The ravioli were also delicious. Next time I'm going to try the pasta bolognese.

When I first moved to the neighborhood, I found and liked this place, and then somehow I forgot about it for a long time. Remembered it this summer and it's now a neighborhood favorite.

Excellent food, ambiance, and service. It's a real treat to dine on this fine food that reminds me of my nonna. Fresh, high-quality ingredients, perfectly prepared. The homemade pasta is delicious. The service is outstanding. It is expensive, though. Occasionally, noisy trucks driving by, but that's unavoidable under the circumstances dining on the sidewalk.
Dining in their garden room would be a better option if you can. Highly recommended restaurant.

Consistently fine food with dedicated service. A family-run restaurant that has continuously adapted to dining needs. During COVID19, they have really been creative in adapting to and complying with changing rules while maintaining their meal quality standard.

Delicious Italian food -- appetizer meatballs were actually the best meatballs I've ever eaten. I tried both the lobster ravioli special and the regular ravioli in pistachio sauce. Both were scrumptious. So was the hot apple crumble I had for dessert.

Looking forward to the days that I can eat inside again, but the outdoor seating in front was comfortable!

Delicious fresh S. Italian cuisine (must try the handmade pastas). Great negroni & wines! Charming, rustic, old-school vibe/atmosphere. Spotty service, though lends a bit to the old-school vibe. Tables are placed close together, but had plexiglass separators & all staff adhered to face masks. The street dining atmosphere actually seemed nicer with more greens/flowers than the back “garden”.

The 'garden' is not really a garden in the outdoor sense. If you are nervous about dining indoors the garden is not truly open air. Better to sit out on the pavement.
