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.

Nonna Dora's homemade pasta is amazing (this visit, we enjoyed the lobster ravioli). We went for the Feast of the Seven Fishes for the second year in a row and will make this an annual event for us!

Second time at itruli. Both times excellent. Food is delicious, indoor and covered outdoor options. Service is great and gracious. The owner pulled up a chair to talk about traveling in Italy. We loved that!

The service was wonderful but I was disappointed in the food. I’ve been coming to the restaurant when I travel to nyc over 15 years. The malledorus used to be a no fail awesome dish. I would order it to go and hop on the train with the saffron pasta and it’s ragu. This time you couldn’t taste the saffron due to too much pepper in the sauce. And the desserts were bland and boring. It’s okay but after years of raving about it I guess it’s passed its prime.

Food was very good except for chocolate dessert with gelato. Cake was room temperature when should have been served warm. Prices a bit high but quality of food was good. Service was poor and they seemed short handed. No one came over to see how things were and difficult getting waiters attention.

The actual menu was quite different from the menu posted online. They had at least 3 gluten free options online and only one option on the menu. The prices were also higher. Super disappointed.

So nice to have a good restaurant open and safe during Covid times. Tasty branzino, delicious tiramisu. Healthy spacing between guests, partitions. Outdoor dining with heaters was good while the temperature held, but indoors worked when it fell.

It was good, but not great.

Waiter mixed up order. They looked short staffed.

Still great wines by the glass.

I'm sure the pandemic has had a great affect on many restaurants in NYC and I Trulli was not spared! I understand the menu being modified and downsized due to various supply shortages for both food and wine! not sure if ownership has changed, but the staff was unrecognizable and I've been dining there for the better part of 20+ years! they were friendly and attentive, but not what I had been used to for all of my prior visits! the food was good, but my pasta dish (main course) was over-cooked and mushy, even though the "cacio e pepe" sauce was good! overall it was a good night, but it wasn't the experience I had remembered for many past years of experience! hope they can get back to where they once were!

Very good food and service. I wish the plates had different prices, not one fits all. Most entrees are enough for 2 people if you order appetizers, primi piatti.

This is one my all time favorite places in the city! Everytime the service is incredible, the staff is so friendly, drinks and food come out very quick too. The italian food takes me back to Europe... from the wine, to the homemade pasta, to the baked bread with spices and tomatoes.

Would highly recommend this place and will be returning!

Expensive. Food lousy - on par with coffee shop food.
Outdoor enclosed garden, with lucite dividers and overhead fans????
Bill was $160 with tip for food and wine. Wine not poured straight from bottle, but from a small carafe, so who really knows what that $15 glass of wine really was.
I had rabbit ragu, which had 4-5 shards of rabbit meat. Awful.
Overall a expensive, lousy meal.

This is one of the hidden gems on the New York dining scene. Authentic and delicious old-school Italian food. They have an excellent selection of wines, but make sure you ask about the owners Wines from his Vineyard in Italy.
