Osteria Tulia Ratings and Reviews
Found this gem online. We wanted to try something new. We enjoyed the atmosphere, the food and the service. Cannot wait to go again.
Awesome Vittles and Great Service
A wonderful dining experience. Quiet enough dining space for a more intimate feel, but a lively bar scene for small bites, drinks and socializing. Wines are heavy on the Italian side - as is appropriate - and the selection is both unique and fairly priced.
Food delicious, service s l o w
Overall, it was fun and the food was very good. But there was just nothing outstanding. My husband, however, did enjoy his pasta, and his palate can be hard to please. I liked the atmosphere for the most part, especially if you are front near the windows, or outside. But the service was S L O W. To the point of annoying.

Unusual menu, well presented. Great service and a nice wine list.
As amazing as we remembered!
Incredible dinner! Hubby and I went out for date night and shared a bottle of red, the Notorious P.I.G. Pizza, the mussel and clam special, the red snapper, tiramisu, and some gelato. Could not have been happier with the food, service (Marco was wonderful and very knowledgeable) and ambiance. Will absolutely be back.

Four of us enjoyed most dishes we ordered except the veal chop that was pretty bland and dry. The Osso Buco was marginal also. The mussels were delicious and so was the tortellini. I must say that the service was very good. We ordered an upper end Barola bottle that was 3 digits and it tasted like a $15 bottle of wine. Unfortunately, we didn't finish the bottle. That was a real downer for me since I enjoy my wine. I should have returned it after the first taste but was hoping it would open up. It never did.

Exceptional food & service
We enjoyed the weekly citrus salad special for the appetizer which was delicious. Our entrees of the linguini & gulf shrimp and the veal saltambuco with kale were excellent. Our server Michael was very attentive and helpful with explaining the menu items.

The Brussels sprouts with sausage is our favorite. Be adventurous with the pig ears.
Wonderful Gem in Naples
Great experience as usual. Our servier, Lisa, was most accommodating and knowledgable. Love the ambiance of this place along with the staff.

This was Mother's Day brunch with family. Our young grandsons have always liked Osteria Tulia both for the choices of food and the wonderful patience and attention they give to the youngest customers. It is a no brainer for us when our family is together. The food is always, almost without exception, the best and most creative and well executed food in Naples. They never disappoint. We are grateful that season is over and the noise and crowds have dissipated. We can get back to our favorite places.

Food is always exceptional. I am of Italian descent and grew up eating simple traditional dishes prepared by my grandmother and mother.

Great good, And the specials are always great!
My only complaint would be that there is not enough time given to enjoy each course. Every time I've been there the entrees come only minutes after the appetizers; rushing the overall dining experiences. The specials are always divine and the waiters are always very informed and non-intrusive. I wish the timing in the kitchen could be better calculated so that diners are given more time to savor each course and not feel rushed. Great ambiance, crowd and even though it is notoriously full, it is never too noisy or overcrowded.

Best in Naples
Great food, nice service, vibrant atmosphere. We come here often and we were never disappointed.
Let's start at the front. The barmaid was less than enthusiastic in her service. That did not start the evening well. The bus and food runner staff are dressed as if they are in a cowboy restaurant. Hardly what you would expect at the upscale place they think they are. For dinner I ordered two appetizers. The Tuscan Chicken Liver was not described on the menu as a pate, but it came as a pate - not acceptable. The soft polenta was more a mush. It looked like and tasted like mashed potatoes. This is the second bad experience I have had with this restaurant. We will not be back and will recommend against.

It's charming, friendly, unique and delicious. The tapenade - as others have noted - is remarkable. The brussels sprouts appetizer would entice anyone to eat their vegetables and the "Pig" pizza with olives and fresh oregano is wonderful though not for people who don't like salty food. I loved it. Our service was splendid although they did bring the appetizers and the pizza all at the same time which was strange. Definitely going back.
Friends recommended and so do I!

The best in Naples
There are many Italian restaurants in Naples, however this is totally our favorite. Food is consistently good, service always good and could frequent it weekly.
The food was incredible. If you are one who appreciates fresh food prepared with positive intentions then this is the place for you! Delicious melt in your mouth homemade pasta, fresh warm baked bread, tender juicy meat, etc.

Excellent Food and Very Accomodating Staff
While we rarely split our meals, my wife and I split an appetizer, a salad and a fresh pasta. The staff was glad to split the dishes. The octopus was very tender tasty; the salad was great and large enough for 2; the venison pasta was so delicious. We would like to return, but they are changing their dog policy from yes to no, so we will have to see if that fits our plans.

Really enjoyed our experience at Tulia, though the crab and octopus ink spaghetti was not a favorite. Others in our group enjoyed their pork and ravioli dishes. The eggplant mix for the bread was very tasty.

I had the Veal Chop ($44), it was terrible, ordered medium rare, it was cooked correctly but the quality of the cut was poor. Mostly gristle and the rest was very tough. I should have sent it back, my bad for not doing so. My companion had the snapper, that was excellent. Large thick piece almost looked like grouper. The eggplant starter that you always get with bread is excellent. I made it at home once and can't believe how much time and effort goes into making this dish. Also had the octopus appetizer which was very good. Wood grilled and very tender. Tulia is a great restaurant will defiantly go back just do not order the veal chop

I've never had a bad meal here. The service was prompt and helpful. It truly is a neighborhood gem.
Food still superior--felt a bit rushed this time
We always enjoy "Tulia" and look forward to visiting. The food is truly superior--imaginative, locally sourced in many cases, and just plain delicious. We were a bit disappointed this time as we felt incredibly rushed from the moment we sat down. We also noted that normally we enjoyed substitutions (i.e. pasta for potatoes) in some cases--this time we were notified that there would be an uncharge to substitute pasta for potatoes. Hoping that this experience was an outlier as this place is truly a gem.
Great experience with my wife on a baby-moon trip!
My wife and I took a trip to Naples, FL and had a great meal! Frank was our waiter and while I generally do not remember waiters, he was fantastic. The food was incredible, the service was too, and the prices were extremely reasonable for Naples.
Dinner is always extraordinary at Tulia and should not be missed

Much too overpriced. Very limited menu. Food was OK, nothing spectacular
Quite honestly, did not understand what the buzz is about this restaurant. Perhaps we were missing something. We requested a table outside when we made the reservation and saw a few were available but we could not sit there as we were told they were folks who came and put their name on a waiting list earlier (they previously did not even have a reservation) were waiting for them. Our waiter was very pleasant but the poor guy had way too many tables resulting in minimal service. The menu was quite limited and the ceasar salad was uneventful. The steak I ordered was tasty but had a great deal of fat. However, the pizza was excellent and the best item we ordered. However, in the end the bill was hefty and I wish we were only paying for a pizza parlor.

A Naples gem. Good food, good wine, good service. Wish they would offer the draft beers they serve in their bar.
