I have been coming here for more than 10 years, on and off. Always a solid choice. Nice location in Grammercy area. Attentive, thoughtful service. enjoyed two of their mainstay pastas on this visit along with calamari fritti and cheese plate. All well prepared. Nice super Tuscan off the wine list which is not cheap but plenty of choices in the mid-range. It was rainy and muggy on our visit so we didn't opt for the terrace seating but that's a plus when the weather works. Good bars and Jazz Standard on the same block so easy for a pre- or after-dinner drink or some live music. Also right on top of the No. 6 28th Street station so good commute.
I truli has one of my favorite Italian restaurants for a long time. I enjoy going to the enoteca for a glass or a flight of terrific Italian wines, along with some delightful olives, cheese and salumeria; or going inside for a full meal. The outside dining is fantastic and well worth the trouble. The owner owns a vineyard in Tuscany, and his Italian wines cant be beat! Service is terrific, the food is excellent-well worth the visit.
Thank you for the wonderful experience!
Loved the feel of the restaurant and the service is top notch. Staff makes this place. The food is good. Dessert was fabulous.
Great food but the restaurant has some fatal acoustic problems due to vaulted ceiling transmits even a whisper from one side to the other (and our table was in the corner at the end) and all the hard surfaces with little or no noise deadening /sound absorption. It should be much quieter as it is a an "older" persons restaurant and I would recommend to anyone to sit in the middle as I did the time before where the vaulted room is the highest.
Great lunch with my wife. The rabbit ragu is to die for.
We used to come occasionally when we lived in the neighborhood but haven't been back in over 20 years but we are glad to have returned. Food was great, outdoor garden area was perfect. We will be back soon.
Service was questionable. Waiter/bus boys screwed up the orders. Slow on clean-up of plates and service. Maybe a bad night for the staff. Food was good but bad service spoils the dinner.
All my life I've eaten the food from this region of Italy. First, the way my family adapted their native Puglisese cuisine to what they could find in Chicago, then, when I became the first of my family to return to Castellana Grotte, I was able to taste for the first time what my family had been trying to imitate in the U.S. I loved them both.
I trulli is the only place I've ever been to provide both of the experiences I had growing up. The rabbit, a little more refined than I'm used to was exquisite. The favatt, what we call Fava e cicoria, was perfect.
My guest and I weren't up for a full bottle of wine, so my only suggestion is that they keep a decent Pugliese wine on hand for those who order by the glass.
I lost my go-to Italian restaurant in New York about two years ago. I just found my new one.
Grazie Nicola and all your staff for making this happen.
Our second visit and it just keeps getting better. We were seated at a great table out on the garden patio. Our waiter Samuel was exceptional and our appetizers/entrees were delicious! A real neighborhood gem.
I have been a customer since they open, and everytime I go, I find something new to eat. Excellent service from the bar to the restaurant, and thwy make you feel at home.
I Trulli used to be one of my go-to places for a casual, high service, yummy evening. I was sorelly dissapointed with my last visit. The menu has dramatically changed. The place was empty. That should have been my first sign. My beloved arugula salad and lasagna were gone. In fact there were no salads on the menu at all. I relented and ordered the pulpo (ocotopus) salad that read like there were greens but there were not... just chunks of rubbery octopus in a vinegary / mayonaisey sauce. (I did not eat it. The server did not notice or make any inquiry.) There was a pasta trio on the menu that included one selection with rabbit... I asked to substitute and was told no. I ended up with ravioli with pesto that was mediocre at best. The pasta was under stuffed and tough and the pesto added little to no flavor. I passed on desert. I am not sure what happened to this little charm. I hope for other diners this was simply an off night.
This is one of the best restaurants in Manhattan; in every way it is 6 stars. It is tucked away on a street of restaurants that runs between Park South and Lex--none of the other restaurants on the block can hold a candle to the place. My only complaint is that I don't get to eat here often enough as I live out of town.
Lovely garden make you feel like your in Italy was a great lunchtime getaway for my staff
We sat outside which is a very pleasant area, inside is very nice too but we wanted to enjoy the good weather. Very good service. I went with my mother and a friend for dinner and they enjoyed it, but were not that satisfied with what they chose. My mother's fish was a bit dry and my friend's seafood plate was difficult to eat. My grilled branzino was delicious.
Absolute gem. From appetizers, cocktails, dinner and dessert, not to mention the service.
We enjoyed Restaurant Week dinner at I Trulli. Service was impeccable. I had the octopus salad starter, delicious! My friend had meatballs, which she said were very good. We both had pasta: orecciette in rabbit ragu, very tasty. For desert I had the pannacotta, the best I have ever had. My friend had the tiramisu, and wished she had had the pannacotta! Unfortunately it was a wet and stormy night, so the lovely garden was closed. The restaurant had several empty tables, so it was quiet, and we were not hurried, but stayed chatting for a while after finishing.
We tried out this restaurant during NYC Restaurant Week and we fell in love with it. The Orecchiette in a rabbit ragú was divine. The pasta was so fresh and made perfectly. I definitely plan on returning here with more friends.
Original Pugliese kitchen; high quality and original, for example the delicious pie accompanying the fine Tagliata. maybe some more light in the garden to facilitate reading the interesting menu / wine card.
Servive was very good.
Advice: combine a meal with first or second set in the club Jazz Standard (almost neighbours).
The apps and main course were great. The tiramisu was old and tasteless, been in the fridge too long. The server should have inquired why we did not eat it. I think he already knew the answer.
Went with my husband for Restaurant Week lunch, which was an excellent value. They didn't skimp on the portions or service, and we left stuffed and satisfied. Their style is from Puglia, the "heel" of Italy. The pasta was al dente, and the sauces had a great balance of flavors. The pulpo was easily our favorite; I've never had octopus so tender... and such a massive portion, too! My only criticism for the meal is that they could have toned down the cocoa powder on the tiramisu. It made it too dry and bitter for my taste, and I felt it overwhelmed the other flavors/textures. The panna cotta was divine, though, so that will be my go-to dessert next time. Attached pics of our meal: pulpo, caprese, orecchiette, malloreddus, panna cotta, and tiramisu.
Ohhh the ravioli dish is a dream ! You would love this place for a great summer dinner outdoors.
This is a wonderful restaurant- always a great meal and the garden is beautiful.
I'd highly recommend the ravioli (in a pesto sause) as an entree and panna cotta as a dessert. Both were deliciously fantastic! But I wasn't impressed with the octopus.
Usually excellent - something was slightly off this night. Didn't detract significantly from the usual great experience here.
Food was delicious and the service was very good, very attentive but didn't rush you out.
Excellent SErvice. Meatball appetizer was a little cold and we didn't even order that but they did let us keep it for free so that was cool. I tried to get the short rib but they didn't have it.
The bread and fried seafood were awesome but the main courses (stuffed chicken and soup de pessci) was ok.
I would def come back to try other things.
Consistently satisfying experience. The back garden is lovely. Service was a little off this time at lunch; not bad just hurried. Scallops were amazing. My entire party was very happy. Love this restaurant.
Our go-to spot for business lunches. Never disappoints.
The quality of the food and the service is always very high. There is a reason I Trulli has been around so long.
Lovely garden. On a low humidity night, there's nothing better than dining outside. The garden at I Trulli has always been a treat. Yummy foods, good wines by the glass. And a Sunday night treat was Restaurant Week.
Tonight was an unusual night. We actually started the evening having dinner at Kingsley on avenue B. Our experience at Kingsley was terrible. They literally came back with the check when I asked them to replace a terrible steak with chicken. OMG...I've never experienced this level of arrogance and poor customer service in my many years living in NYC!!
ITrulli was the exact opposite experience!! Great food and amazing service! They helped make a truly awful evening end on a great note. Thank you iTrulli!
First time at I Trulli, for a business lunch meeting. Sat in the back "garden" area which was comfortable and quaint. The service was excellent and attentive from the moment I arrived until paying the bill. The Sunday meatballs were a tasty appetizer. Had the swordfish entree which was delicious but just a tiny tad overcooked - swordfish is unforgiving in that it seems to only take second between being perfectly cooked and overcooked. The wine selection is extensive. It's not inexpensive - tab for two with one shared appetizer, one glass of wine each, entree and coffee was $150. Overall, very nice experience and would recommend as long as your aware of the $$.
Always one of my favorite restaurants. Great food. Great service.
It was overwhelmingly warm in the restaurant. The service was pleasant but incredibly in attentive and slow.
I took my friend here for a special birthday. I confirmed his b.day at the desk and was assured the waiter was aware. I ordered the seafood dish which should have been called a boulliabase. It was soupy with small chunks of seafood. I asked if I could have some pasta with it and they brought a small dish of pasta and then charged $14. My friend ordered pasta with clam sauce and it was mediocre at best. Service was ok but not especially friendly. No birthday wishes for my friend. The bar staff was very nice and welcoming.
Have been meaning to try this place forever, and in spite of a few things, I'll go back -- the bar area would be perfect for light snacks, etc - roomy seating at the bars and marble tables. The garden in the back is a gem, and worth going for that. Buratta one of the best I've had, only a thin outer firm mozarella, just enough to hold the incredibly creamy center. All the apps were quite good. The secundi were priced in the 30's-40's, which seemed high for the rest of the menu. I ordered the seared scallops and they looked beautiful, perfectly browned on both sides, warm in the middle. But literally each bite of each scallop was full of sand. One or two, fine - but it took completely away from enjoying a beautiful plate. And for the price, I expected a perfect plate. Not sure who dropped the ball in the prep area, but I would have made this all 4 stars except for the high price of a gritty main.
Staff very welcoming and pleasant. Greeted by Nicola and had a nice conversation with him. Have not been there in awhile but food still very good and ambience very comfortable.
I Trulli was hands-down wonderful! We attended for my sister's birthday and sat in the garden. The ricotta accompanying peasant bread and focaccia was delicious. The service was accommodating without being cloying or obsequious and they took pains to surprise the birthday girl with a ruse about some coffee. :) highly recommend!
