The food was good but our waiter made the occasion all the more memorable. We started with 4 apps, housemade ricotta, artichokes, mushrooms and crispy pig ears. The ricotta was good but flavor was bland in comparison to the rest. The mushrooms were excellent, as were the fried baby artichokes.
The best pastas were the garganelli and potato gnocchi, and they did 1/2 portions so I could have 2. Hubby and friend tried the onion risotto with foie gras, which missed the mark. Other friend had bucatini cacio e pepe and tabbing & taleggio quadretti. The bucatini had such simple but amazing flavors, and rabbit was good too.
Homemade limoncello was delish, tiramisu, chocolate ganache also great. Will definitely

It's hard to get reservations here so when I saw availability a month out I booked it. This is a farm fresh Italian place. The menu is superb and varies based on seasonal availability and the pricing is reasonable for 5th ave. Service is excellent, friendly and accommodating. Fred was our waiter and was top notch!! Hostess people greeted us as if we were family, bartender was efficient, friendly and knowledgeable.

Waiter was AWESOME!!! Very knowledgeable about the menu, history of the chef and told us about upcoming opening of another of the Chef/ owners restaurant .

Another great 5th Ave South restaurant. The wood fired mushrooms (side order) is worth the trip all by itself. Overall, check the menu to make sure it has dishes that you like. If you think you will like the menu, then this is a great place.

We frequently dine at Trulia and always have a great meal. This one was out of control though! We split the pumpkin ravioli as an appetizer which was amazing and my husband had the bucatini and added truffles. My brother had the turkey special with figs and I enjoyed salmon. We were back two days later for the same meal. (Yes, even after Thanksgiving!)

Mediocre at best...not even! After reading some of the positive reviews on Osteria Tulia, we were excited to try this restaurant. What a disappointment! This restaurant appears to be geared toward being able to dine outdoors on 5th Avenue, and that is about it. The service was non-existent (we saw our waiter twice: once to take our order and once to deliver our bill; that was it!), our food was just mediocre (pasta was overcooked and the meat sauce was basically a cheese sauce with very LITTLE meat). The staff tried to deliver our pasta dishes three times, while we were still eating our appetizers - in short, a total disaster. Avoid this restaurant; there are many other better restaurants in Naples.
UPDATE: After being contacted by Osteria Tulia's General Manager, Rick Rinella, who kindly invited us back to give Oteria Tulia another try, I am happy to say that Osteria Tulia did not disappoint! The service was excellent, the food delicious and well-prepared and the timing of the meal was spot on. Rick Rinella has found his calling: he loves the restaurant business, cares about his customers' experience, and he wants to see them happy. Osteria Tulia is on our 'go to' list of restaurants! Thank you, Rick!

Initially had an issue with our reservation. This was addressed by management but the issue should not have occurred. We ordered a Cesar salad and a pizza. Both were the quality you would find in a fast food restaurant. I have had an Aldi frozen pizza that was better than the one we had at this restaurant. I expected more from this 5th Avenue spot.

We took our out of town guest for dinner and requested to sit outside. We have dined here before and felt the inside noise level was unpleasant. Sitting on the patio was so enjoyable. Our wait staff was extremely attentive and helpful. We loved the variety of items on the menu. Not your typical Italian menu. Will definitely return.

Tulia is great at every level. From the tapenade to the heirloom and burrata salad or octopus appetizer to the pastas and then any main course is a winner. No exaggeration I have been to Tulia and or Bar Tulia no less than 50 times. You will not find better food or service in SW Florida. The only negative about Tulia is that Naples has discovered this jewel so tables are hard to get in season.

The Calamari appetizer was quite good, but the Mary had a little lamb pizza was not as good as the server made it sound. A few of the pasta dishes were rather tasty, and slightly above average. Nothing to brag about, but I'm afraid that I would not return.
