Well, we found everything we like in a restaurant at Bread & Tulips. The duck ragu lasagne is not to be missed. Wonderful wine list and thoughtful, comprehensive wine by the glass offerings as well. The service is exemplary - the perfect combination of caring and professional. We shared an arugala salad to start and it was handpicked fresh and delicious. This was our first time and we can't wait to go back!

Bread & Tulips is consistently fabulous, authentic Italian food. Everyone we bring here loves it. The owner, Ricardo, is warm and friendly and makes great recommendations. Wine list is affordable and delicious choices! Can't say enough good things!

My wife and I stayed at the adjoining Giraffe Hotel and ate two meals at B&T. Fresh ingredients with a light touch by the chef created a nourishing and tasty meal. The kale salad and the flashed fried artichoke was particularly enjoyable

The space was nice and quiet, and the waiter was friendly, but the service was very slow, and the pizza was mediocre. If you’re in the mood for pizza, you might want to pass on Bread & Tulip.

Very nice menu selections at this Italian restaurant. This includes interesting appetizers, creative salads,and lively pasta and pizza selections. I’ve known the manager for years and have always been impressed by his dedication to making sure everyone is enjoying their dining experience. Their Birthday wine gift is an amazing deal.

I went to this restaurant with a group of friends on a weeknight. The service was very pleasant and friendly although perhaps not fine dining elegant (no table cloths, etc., so it suited the spot). The food was excellent, well cooked and flavorful. Altogether, this is a great place to go for a friendly evening chatting. If you want high buzz, go elsewhere. If this place were closer to my home I would be there weekly.

Mediocre food at $$ prices. Came here after a show Sunday and my partner and I had a glass of wine each, we shared the hen of the woods pizza and the fried artichoke apperizter. Our bill came to $65.00.
Pizza was bland, not flavorful at all. Portion size was so so. Pizza is a thin crust, you get about 6 slices. The fried artichole app was literally 1 artichoke fried, cut into 4 quarters. It was not the hearts that we expected. The petals were slightly crispy but the inside parts were soggy/chewy with a little aioli to dip in. We considered ordering pastas, but they were priced at around 22-24.00 *veggie too and I read in previous reviews portion size was small, not good for sharing. Very disappointing experience despite reading good google/yelp reviews. Wines were ok. We had a red and a white, I forget the names. They were like 12-13 a glass. Cocktails were 14-15. This bar is in the basement of the giraffe hotel. It was pretty quiet, just a few tables on a late sunday. Service/speed of getting the dishes was fine. Just disappointed with the food. No value.

Ate her for restaurant week and the food was really delicious. I had the scallops and they were perfectly prepared and had a lot of flavor. I had a drink - dark and stormy and a lot of places don't know how to make it, but this was perfect. And for dessert I ordered the chocolate hazelnut torte and it was delicious! It was a very good dinner and we are going back for Valentine's dinner.

This was my wife and I 14th anniversary. We both loved it . The food was great ,our host Arnaud was very attentive, amazing and very personable. I had the sausage with the house made pasta that was really excellent and the tiramisu was probably the best I had. My wife enjoyed her burrito with tomatoes. She only wish she had some polenta with the seared scallops.

The food was tasty, but definitely too expensive for only pasta (~$26 each dish we ordered). One thing that was very annoying was that the only reason we ended up at this spot was because it was on the list of Restaurant Week options; further, the restaurant has at the entrance the Restaurant week book (where the restaurant is listed for both lunch and dinner) and they did not have a participating menu. The place is nice but it was not incredibly crowded yet was imposible to listen to the person sitting across your table.

My friend and I went for Restaurant Week, and I have to say it was great all around! I had the creamy burrata with tomato as an appetizer, a skirt steak (that was cooked to medium rare perfection with delightful seasonings) with french fries and arugula for my main course, and an absolutely delicious dark chocolate and hazelnut mousse cake for dessert that was soft and had a fantastic balance of flavors. Would definitely recommend!

Good food, lovely mood and ambience. Has good level background music, at a level good enough to hear, but not distracting where you can't focus on conversation. Recommended for a quit intimate night out with friends or a lovely date.

Found this place on Open Table for a night out with friends, and I'm definitely going to be adding it to our regular rotation! The food was delicious and very reasonably priced, and the wine bottles were a steal (especially for a restaurant in this area)! The service was great too, and we'll definitely be back soon with a larger group.
