Osteria Tulia Ratings and Reviews
Everyone is so nice when you come in and accommodating our waiter Fred was great, I wanted something that was not on the menu that they serve at lunch and he asked the chefs to prepare it and they were very, dating and did I was very happy. Or males were excellent will return again and also for lunch
We were on our way from Fort Lauderdale to Sarasota for a softball showcase and were able to secure a last-minute dinner reservation easily through Open Table. We were graciously seated promptly and enjoyed a wonderfully prepared dinner. Our server was very professional and made great recommendations to enhance our dining experience.
The service started out great and then didn't see our waiter for the rest of our dinner. I asked him and he said he was busy talking. We had to asked for our plates to be removed then they tried to take away our wine glasses when we had not finished our bottle. Not my kind of restaurant.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Naples and truly one of the best. It has artistic vibe with sophisticated but simple Italian food. The homemade pastas are tender,sauces perfectly. The homemade bread is fantastic served complimentary with eggplant copponata. The pizza is woodfired awesome. You must try Osteria Tulia. I'm trying to get a reservation at The French, it's sister restaurant that has just opened. Great buzz about that one, too.
went on Mothers' Day. They take your credit card to hold a reservation which I did not like. small portions (pasta) for the price (expensive). added 20% gratuity automatically saying they do that for parties of 6+ (we had 4 adults and 2 small children), service was okay. average overall experience. there are many other italian food restaurants in Naples that dwarf Osteria in terms of taste and price.
Best Restaurant in Naples! We've loved coming to Chef Betulia's cozy award winning restaurant ever since it opened. Amazing food and what stands out : attentive servers and staff who always look busy and engaged in their work. Hope the James Beard award comes this way one year!
This restaurant is very good but not great. Tables are packed tight, noise level is very high. Menu is very interesting and unlike anything that I have experienced elsewhere in Naples. My food came out lukewarm rather than hot. It was tasty though. The desserts were just mediocre. The tiramisu was the best of three we ordered and it just didn't have enough espresso in it. I won't return here until I cycle through a few other restaurants on my list.
We had an excellent meal with friends. The pastas are all home made, and they will do half portions. The restaurant was surprisingly not crowded with quite a few empty tables, but I had trouble getting the time I wanted on Open Table. Lovely setting and not at all noisy.
We waited for a few minutes to get a table outside which was great for conversation as inside was a little more energetic. It was a fantastic meal at a wonderful table with great service. I have been to Tulia 3 times recently and it is my favorite restaurant in Naples. The homemade pasta is fantastic as is everything that I have tried at this restaurant. I highly recommend it for every occasion.
Dined on a recent Saturday evening, made reservations weeks in advance for 3, and yet still didn't get outdoor seating:( (it was Easter Saturday though). Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. The ceasar salads were fresh, short rib tortellinis were tasty, pizza was average to above average, the lemon blueberry dessert a hit. I ordered the short rib special served with polenta and sauteed broccolini...it was billed as 'fork tender', it was not. I am not one to send back or even let a server know of my disappointment, but because it was difficult to pull apart with fork and a knife and then was stringy and chewy, I told the server when she asked how the entrees were tasting. She graciously offered to take it back to the kitchen. They agreed it was not very tender and sent out another portion, it wasn' t fork tender either, but I ate some of it and passed the rest along to my college aged son. The polenta served with it was almost non existent...maybe more of a swirl. She said these short ribs were cut from the less fatty side of the meat, but I enjoy cooking and have learned slow cooking makes even the leanest meats tender.( I actually had the short ribs at Season 52 a couple months ago and they were moist, tender and served in a nicely flavored beef sauce with a nice serving of polenta.) Stay away from the short ribs, stick with the regular menu items and you'll have an enjoyable meal in a welcoming setting with good service.
