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.

We had an amazing experience at this restaurant, the owner even invited us over to take a picture with Nonna Dora while she was making pasta! I lived in Italy for eight years and It took me back there in one bite! If you want the Italian experience where they make you feel like family and want amazing Italian food, then I suggest you eat here!

Food was delicious but the prices were double what they should charge. The chicken parmigiana is $34 and its just the chicken, it doesn't include a side of any sort, not even noddles. All the other entrees came with a side.

Nice restaurant. The short rib dish lacked a small amount of flavour but was otherwise quite nice. Good wine list. Authentic Italian food.

Recommend for a dinner when parents are in town. Extensive wine list and delicious handmade pasta. Ambiance is kind of weird though...lighting is way off

Such a lovely restaurant. I'm so glad a friend recommended it. The decor was simple but elegant, the service was attentive, smooth and extremely professional, and the food was fresh and beautifully prepared. I will be back.

Always a “solid” meal here, with warm professional staff, thorough service, traditional and seasonal Italian fare to choose from. I appreciate the working fireplace this time of year, making the delicious “perfect” Manhattan all the more perfect!

Really disappointed. Food was mediocre. Inferior to most other Italian restaurants with the same price point. Will not go back. Wine by the glass equally disappointing.

Best for great home made pasta. The appetiser portions were $16 compared to normal sized at $20 Which seems high. Good service as well

This dinner was planned as a special evening for my husband who was celebrating a big birthday. We come to the bar and often and he wanted to have his birthday dinner here.I had planned ahead to have a candle put in the desert we ordered and the woman on the phone said she would take care of it. The night we arrived, we sat at the bar first, which was lovely (Daria is wonderful). But when desert came, a waiter brought it and just placed it on the table and walked away. No candle, no nothing. What an extreme disappointment. I told the hostess on the way out and while she apologized it really brought our whole evening down as it was a very important night. I can't believe a restaurant of this caliber couldn't get this one thing right. In addition, food-wise, my husband told me the chicken he ordered was very dry.

Excellent mushroom and calamari starters, pasta and fish entrees , and tiramisu. Long Italian wine list with something for every budget. Good service. Lively, but not really loud.

We ate at the bar and the bartender provided us with the finest service. She was attentive and considerate and professional. When we told her we were celebrating our anniversary she brought to us two complimentary glasses of sparking wine - a gesture we will never forget. The food was so excellent prepared in a way which left us wanting more. We have already recommended this restaurant to several friends

Some of the best Italian food I’ve ever had at a restaurant. I’ve been making my grandmas sauce and meatballs since I can remember and I’ve never had a place compare to it until now. Incredible food from the pasta to the meatballs to the bread, the sauce and even the dessert. Would recommend to anyone and can’t wait to come back next time in the city!

We really enjoyed our dinner at I trulli. I had their signature rabbit orecchiette and my husband had the zuppa. Bread service was also excellent. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. Seating in the garden was very romantic. I’d highly recommend it to friends.

My favorite restaurant in NYC, it never disappoints. Amazing food, equally amazing service. It’s like eating at your friend’s house who happens to be an incredible cook! Complete with the mom making the fresh pasta when you walk in!

Love the restaurant. It was a bit crowded the other night so service was slower than usual. But the yummy food and good wine choices make up for it. Lovely on the back patio.
