About I Trulli
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 Ratings and Reviews
I went for Winter Restaurant Week and the food was AMAZING, but the wait staff messed up my table’s order three times. The table next to us also had some problems getting their order wrong too. No one else in our section seemed to have that problem though. I would probably go back, but still disappointing.
I last visited I Trulli in August 2017 and enjoyed the ambiance, the food and the service. I had no idea that I'd find a reconfigured dining room that was nearly unrecognizable and left me feeling a bit confused and disoriented. As for the food, my pickled eggplant with mozzarella was disappointing. The mozzarella was dry and nearly flavorless; my guest ordered calamari and enjoyed it. My pasta entree (cavatelli, i believe) with kale seemed ordinary and heavy; my guest tasted it and concurred. His seafood entree was not memorable and also not a dish he would recommend. I'm truly sorry to be so negative, but I wanted my guest to enjoy the kind of experience I had last summer, and we were both disappointed. I would still give high mark for service.
In years past, had many a successful client lunch in their beautiful garden. This visit, went with my husband for Restaurant week special. Food was delicious! Service is completely professional and friendly. Ambiance is lovely. Planning to become a regular patron here!
Wow. What a great find. So many wonderful Pastas to choose from took my breath away.
All handmade. My wife and I shared two pastas. Yum, yum. I had the whole grilled fish which was served with spinach. I wish I could have also ordered all of the other fish entrees to taste,
but my wife would have objected. Maybe next time. We will be back!!!!!
Food was excellent especially the calzone appetizer and black bass and wagyu entrees. Our service was also excellent and though very crowded the venue was conducive to conversation. Plan to return again soon for another delicious meal in a very elegant restaurant.
Very enjoyable Restaurant Week meal although we added a course for $10 each. Nice to have the fireplace. Food authentic and delicious. Pasta, cheeses, veggies, and fish all outstanding. Servers courteous, efficient, and friendly without being chummy. Nice winelist, all Italian. Would definitely go back especially when the garden is in bloom.
i Trulli is a go-to favorite. Authentic and fresh Italian cuisine. Handmade pastas, meatballs and family recipes. The wine-by-the-glass menu is very good offering real variation and choices for every taste. On this visit I had a fish dish in light tomato sauce. Deep in flavor yet sensitive to each fish's cooking time. Starter was a beet salad with light dressing and of course shaved parmesan. It is surrounded by other fine restaurants and night life. A great neighborhood.
First time back in a year or so, but pleased as before with the food and service. Octopus salad was light and tasty, with fennel and citrus. Fish was well served, cooked to request. The crispy rabbit with onion rings seemed out of place, over done and unattractive; the rabbit ragu pasta, however, was excellent, more like ''pulled rabbit," full of flavor and texture. Service was prompt and attentive. Background music was a bit discordant, luckily not too loud. Happy to be back, will return soon.
I frequently eat with friends at I Trulli. Food is excellent and choices are nicely varied. Service is always good as is the atmosphere. Sometimes it can be noisy but last time it wasn't so crowded for lunch so it was a good place to sit and talk. I like it for lunch and dinner especially since I live a few blocks away.
My husband and I had such a lovely dinner at iTrulli last Friday night. We lived almost next door to this restaurant for many years and dined -- and lunched -- there often, but we moved out of the neighborhood and hadn't been back in a while. The restaurant has been changed into two spaces since our last visit, with a more casual eatery next door to the main dining room. The smaller dining room felt cozy and I had a view of the lighted Christmas tree out in the garden. Our server, Samuel, was absolutely wonderful. He gave us helpful descriptions of wines that were new to us and we liked both of our selections very much. Jim had the Osso Buoco and I had the market fish with veggies; both were really great. We will be making a return trip soon!
