Tiella serves modern Southern Italian cuisine. Its inventive and sophisticated menu is inspired by and elevates the home-cooked meals and peasant culinary traditions owners Giuseppe Castellano and Mario Coppola were raised with in Naples, Italy. Indeed, Tiella takes its name from the Neopolitan word for a cast-iron pan that is used for baking, grilling or frying meats, fish and breads. Our signature tiellas are pizza-like appetizers baked in our wood-fired oven.

Our philosophy is that the greatest meals require the finest ingredients. We import mozzarella di bufala, stracciatella and other fine cheeses, as well as risotto and prosciutto from Italy. Many other ingredients are sourced from local producers and farmers. To ensure that we serve the very best bread and pasta, we make our own.

The extensive wine list is comprised of Italian makers and complements the menu.

Finally, a good neighborhood restaurant. Food is consistently delicious. I plan to work my way through the entire menu.

Excellent meal! We started with the mini-pizza and glass of Chianti and then moved on to a pasta special with clams and the Arctic char. Everything was excellent even the bread and olive oil. It isn’t a big place so make a reservation but food and service were both great!

Tuesday night is pizza night at Tiella although you can order personal sized pizzas on any night (except Tuesday). Go figure. Their dough is tasty and their toppings are top quality. And you walk away with money in your pocket!

Went on a busy Saturday for a late dinner. Had the Capesanta appetizer, which was quite good tasting, but texturally the prosciutto wrapping the scallop was too tough to match the softer texture of the scallop. Also had the Garganelli pasta--undersauced, lacking in flavor, with mushy, overcooked fava beans. I've had much better meals at Tiella, so I was a bit surprised.

When I’m in NYC this is usually one of the restaurants that I return to. The food is very authentic Italian, the service is impeccable, and they have a nice list of Italian wines. Highly recommended!

Consistently excellent food in a very informal, small setting. Good servers, and atmosphere is reasonable. No luxury except for the food. Prices for food and wine are very reasonable Great neighborhood place, easy to walk by in error.

Tiella is a neighborhood gem. A very small, but cozy spot. Food is consistently good with lots of options. Our waiter was knowledgeable and could answer all questions. I ordered the Stracciatella E Tartufo, delicious, the eggplant parm also delicious. For my main course the Lamb shank, which was moist and tender. Will definitely go back.

The quality of the food was absolutely delicious. We order burrata, crab cake, and a small pizza with shaved truffle on top. The ambiance had a quiet, romantic vibe with great music. Our server, Paula, was very attentive and we enjoyed having her. I would highly recommend this place.

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. We were served by Mario, the owner, who was very nice and professional. Prices were moderate. My arugala salad was delicious. My husband tried the pizza and loved it, and we both had pasta for an entrée. I was surprised this tiny, hole in the wall restaurant, has been around for 8 years and I never tried it. It's gets a pretty high rating on Zagats.

This is one of those nice little restaurants with good food and a nice ambiance that you occasionally stumble upon. It's small and narrow, but comfortable and quiet. I'd call it upscale comfortable. The food was good, but not memorable - except for the Gallette (chickpea fritters with prosciutto, stracciatella cheese and figs), which was amazing. Overall, you won't go wrong if you just want a nice, quiet dinner with interesting menu items.
