Italian
Authentic Cuisine, From Northern Italy to Seattle
Since its inception, Tulio has been a regular on restaurant awards lists, thanks in no small part to Chef Walter Pisano, whose cooking is inspired as much by his travels through the Old World as his Italian roots. Tulio’s dishes are simple yet sophisticated, combining rustic Italian preparations with local ingredients to create bold flavors and an unforgettable dining experience. Recognizing that our guests have different tastes and dining preferences, we proudly offer several gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian dishes on each of our daily menus. If you have any food allergies or other special requests, please let us know.

    I love this restaurant. I used to crave their gnocchi. They made bigger fluffier pillows- not sure I'd get again. Anyone who loves creamy would probably like it better than the old pre-covid version, but I liked the harder crispier gnocchi of past. Oh well, it is still good. Lamb and orecchiette were excellent. First drink was good but the brut rose tasted soapy. Not sure if it was the glass or it just wasn't good. The server promptly replaced it with Moët. Classy. I never send anything back so that was nice. I would gladly dine here anytime I'm in Seattle.

    My friend had the Ahi Tuna which was great. I had a pasta that was not memorable but it was fine. Service was excellent because we were the only patrons in the bar. I highly recommend the pot de crème which was fantastic. We ordered bread which was substantial but none came with the pasta at all.

    We went for the New Year’s Eve . We had requested our favorite table which we were able to be seated at. Dave was our waiter and the service was excellent. We had a lovely meal, drinks took a long time to come but again it was New Year’s Eve. This is one of our favorite places and I would highly recommend it .

    A long time favorite for holiday dining downtown. (And really anytime) We are glad it’s back,with a lovely yet warm atmosphere, excellent wait staff, and great food. Plus the valet parking makes crazy downtown traffic a no concern.

    I was pleased as to the quality of service and the food. I had the orichette pasta, which was to die for. Very reminiscent of a bolonese. Subtle flavors that tickled the palate. I love it when the spices are blended perfectly. My guest had the ravioli which she thoroghly enjoyed. Happened to mention it was her birthday, and the server brought over a delightful scoop of ice cream with a "straw" candle. Very festive. HIghly recommend this restaurant.

    We had a great meal at Tulio this past week. The cured steelhead first course was excellent. The fish of the day was a large piece of ahi tuna that was perfectly cooked. The lamb shank is huge and wonderfully prepared. The wine list has many excellent Italian wines. Service was attentive and efficient.
