Osteria Tulia Ratings and Reviews
Tulia is a lovely place . I have had many great meals here .It must of been an off night and our waiter was being pulled in many directions although the restaurant was very empty. It took about 15 minutes before he took our wine order. It was a bit frustrating and then he did not come back for at least another 10-15 minutes to pour it and take our dinner order. The food came out on a very timely basis. The grilled cauliflower appetizer was very good, very cheesy but very good . They could put 1/2 the cheese and it would be great. I had the Tortelloni entree which was excellent! Cooked alla dente, with beef short ribs , just the right amount of marsala , and it was perfection. My friend had the salmon and said it was not very good. It looked overcooked . He did not even eat half. Maybe not the right pick on the menu. Overall not the best of Tulia, but I will go back again.
Without question this is a must for you to try. Everyone on staff is a delight, particularly our waiter, Marco. The food selections are eclectic and so very delicious. The Caesar salad is terrific and the roast chicken is fantastic. We also had a pasta trio that is outstanding.
Wonderful ambiance...quaint Italian rustic feel. Excellent service....our server Katie was very knowledgeable and went out of her way to make our dining experience memorable. 5 star cuisine....the Tuna tartare appetizer is superb, our main courses were all outstanding right down to the desserts!!!! I highly recommend Osteria Tulia....it will not disappoint:)
Excellent menu with creative, and interesting, combinations and ingredients. The game hen and salmon were both prepared well. The restaurant was very busy (Saturday night), but the service didn't seem to suffer. Only complaint was that tables were very close together and it was extremely noisy. Would go back on a week night.
Great food and service. Osteria Tulia is an authentic rustic Italian gem in Naples. The special seafood appetizer was delicious. The homemade pasta entree weekly specials were also terrific. Katie our server provided extraordinary attentive and friendly service.
After many visits to Tulia this was the first time that I found one of our entrees to be totally unacceptable, the meat was undercooked and very fatty and tough. If we weren't concerned about getting to the theater I would have sent it back to the kitchen. Very disappointed with the kitchen quality control.
The restaurant was good. What I expected going in (never heard or saw this place before - we had gotten a gift card as a present) was not what it was. It was Rustic/casual.
The bad parts first: They're not horrible just some things that didn't necessarily make me feel like this place was 100%.
First, we were celebrating our 10 year anniversary, which was noted on the reservation , but never even said anything regarding it. I wasn't expecting a free anything but just a note. People like to feel special on their special days.
Second, on the reservation I requested outdoor dining if available - and it was - but it was so hot. There were plenty of regular tables open but because we didn't have a reservation for one of them they put us at a high top next to the bar. Usually don't mind but not what I was expecting to spend my anniversary at. But also because there were plenty of open tables all night.
Third, the pork ribeye was just ok. I couldn't put my finger on it but I wouldn't recommend it.
The good: The service was excellent. Our server who I forget her name was so wonderful - she explained the menu, -answered the questions we had and was very prompt. We loved that there were many other server assistants walking around to fill up water, get you bread, take dirty plates away, etc.
We had the meatballs for an appetizer and they were amazing! Definitely a good choice.
My fiancé had the crab gnocchi and oh my goodness that was the best dish of the night and in awhile! It was very good and flavorful. The best part is he doesn't like tomatoes and originally they were to be in the sauce but the kitchen did it without. He was super happy.
We will come back at least once to use the rest of our gift card. I will know this time what to expect. I think I did just had higher expectations than what was actually there.
Definitely worth a try if on 5th avenue!
Very good, but not excellent, Italian food. Good selection of wines from Italy though a bit pricey. Attentive service and great bread!
The pasta flights where a mixed bag - the pasta was as it should but one on the dishes didnt appeal to any of us (more of a winter dish) and all where a bit "plain" as something one can do at home (not bad, but not what I expect from a highly rated restaurant). There's a lot of competition on 5th Ave so better keep it sharp!
Always wonderful! For lunch, I had the house salad with radishes, carrots and shaved adiago cheese. Perfectly fresh and dressed with a light hand. My entree was a mushroom risotto that was creamy and delicious. The mushrooms were cooked to perfection and served on top. Dessert was a fabulous rhubarb and strawberry tart. I also had one of the craft cocktails.
