Osteria Tulia Ratings and Reviews
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.
This is our favorite dining out spot in Naples and we eat out most nights on vacation. Their pasta is unbeatable: fresh, al dente, unique and memorable recipes. Tortelloni filled with braised rib meat was brilliant. Goat cheese filled ravioli on pea puree and truffle oil was melt in your mouth. Superb wines.
Opted to sit inside on a steamy Naples evening...big mistake. If you're a big Led Zeppelin fan you're in luck because the owner/chef likes them too... loud! Not the atmosphere we were hoping for. Fried artichoke appetizer and Caesar Salad both disappointing. Somewhat redeemed by my very tasty Fiore cocktail, veal saltimbocca and attentive waitress. Too many great Naples restaurants to repeat this one.
We are official foodies and Osteria Tulia is our new favorite restaurant. I had the swordfish special. It was one of the best fish dishes I ever had and I don't really like swordfish. Our server Amanda was wonderful. She was quite friendly and helpful with her suggestions. Love the ambiance and can't wait to go back.
This is my husband and my second time eating here. We ate here for lunch and this was our first dinner experience. We ordered the chicken liver, which was pretty gross. The salad was very good and our main courses were very good, my husband ordered the rabbit and I had the seafood risotto. So overall the meal was good. We we would return to the restaurant.
