Step through the antique revolving doors of Tulio Ristorante and it's as if you've entered a bustling Italian trattoria in the heart of downtown Seattle. Chef Walter Pisano clearly puts his heart into this longstanding favorite, continuing to impress diners and critics alike. His boldly flavored dishes are both simple and sophisticated, combining rustic Italian preparations with fresh Pacific Northwest ingredients. Add to this our great location in downtown Seattle, our warm, intimate atmosphere and outstanding service and it's easy to understand why Tulio is widely regarded as one of the city's best restaurants.

Food was ok. Had to send 1 dish back, it was completely burnt. My dish was ok. Lacked any seasoning on the roasted red potatoes. It was difficult finding the ham in my omelet. Even though the wait staff was great the kitchen staff is in need of an upgrade.

Portions were small and very bland tasting for the prices. Service marginal at best. Upon being seated, the bus person walked by us twice with a pitcher of water , once catching my eye, and kept on walking. As he walked by us a third time after stopping at tables on either side of us, I had to call out to him and ask if we could have some water . He either chose to ignore me or did not hear me, and kept walking. I ordered the risotto wich was served in an enormous bowl, but was the equivalent of a 1.5 measuring cup. It was under cooked and looked and tasted like oatmeal. This was a Valentine dinner and my lady was not impressed, especially after I had talked it up and told her about all the rave reviews?

Great food & service! Wish I had a scoop more of the orecchiette pasta but the homemade apricot lavender sorbet was phenomenal! Will definitely eat here again when I am in Seattle!

Good place for lunch or dinner but difficult for larger groups due to very high noise level making conversation difficult.

The staff, knowing it was our anniversary, gave us two red roses and a free dessert. We truly appreciated that kind gesture. Everything went smoothly, our waitress was very attentive. It was nice to have valet parking. Thank you.

It was definitely okay. But for the price ($170 for one split appetizer, two entrees, and two drinks each) it wasn't worth it. I've had much better food. It was simply decent in my opinion. I won't be going back. I wasn't impressed. 3.5 stars.

The waiter and the food was great.

The source of our disappointment was the treatment we received on arrival. Although we made our reservation several weeks in advance, the hostess led us to the worst table in the room. When we asked for another of the many open tables, we were told they were reserved and were offered a slightly better location. Tiny table in high traffic area. Shortly after we were seated the hostess led another nicely dressed couple to the same lousy table we were first offered. Most of the better tables and booths remained vacant during our meal.

Despite the excellent food and attentive waiter, the mood on our special Valentine evening was spoiled.
