A Charming Break from warehouse restaurants!
The booths and the end table in the bar offer quiet. The decor is pleasing, colorful, restful.
The waiter responded to special dietary requests without missing a beat. He was cheerful and efficient. The grilled chicken was moist and tasty. The risotto a bit salty. Delicious nutella bar for dessert.

A frequented stop every time I am in Seattle. Solid service, great food and enjoyable ambiance make this a can't miss stop for those looking for wonderful Italian food, which takes advantage of Seattle's proximity to fresh vegetables, fish and meat. Amble wine list and experienced bartenders, who can concoct a wonderful cocktail.

My husband and I went to Tulio's for a pre-theater brunch. I had the Tulio's version of eggs benedict. It was served on grilled bread and had a Italian hollandaise sauce. I could have eaten an entire basket of the bread and dipped it in that sauce. It was very yummy. My husband had the biscuits and gravy-also very good. The service was excellent and super friendly. Would definitely go back.

Dinner with a few high school women friends (class of 64). Cozy restaurant with great atmosphere. Sat upstairs which didn't have as much ambience as downstairs but quiet. Suzy, our waitress, was outstanding, always there when we needed her but never pushy or hovering. We shared three large pasta plates between the 6 of us, two salads and 2 desserts. Perfect amount and everything was delicious. Standout dishes were the Pappardelle with smoked pork bolognese recommended by a couple we met in the bar), Agniolette with mushrooms, Kale salad and the pecan tart dessert!

Have had the privilege of dining at Tulio for years! My first visit was February 2002! I treated a friend for an after Christmas gift and everything was awesome! The food is always great and service stellar! Thank you!

My boyfriend and I dined here on New Year's Eve and the food was exceptional! It was very busy, so the service was a little slow, but our server was very friendly. It's a smaller place and kind of crammed, but I would definitely go back. The portions were very generous which isn't always the case for nicer restaurants.

Even though this place was extremely busy before New Year's Eve, the food was outstanding, the ambiance was festive (if loud), and the service was prompt. I think part of the reason we enjoyed it so much because we were seated upstairs, in a corner near the windows. (Downstairs the tables are somewhat close together.) It was worth the price for a special night out.

Tulio is one of our favorites for a romantic dinner. We enjoy coming out on NYE, because the menu is intriguing and always delicious. The personnel (from hostess to waiters/waitresses to bus person) who attend to our needs,requests and service are always kind, courteous and attentive.

The sweet potato gnocchi was amazing. I had never had it crispy on the outside before, but it was very good. Hubby's spicy sausage pasta was really good, too! The lamb sirloin was okay, but give me been over it any time. Hubby had veal which tasted pretty good, too.

We had a wonderful dinner at Tulio's as usual. We are always so warmly welcomed and our favorite table is always ready for us. The food is excellent, the ambiance terrific, and our waiter Efren was sensational. Staff stop by to say hello which makes us feel even more welcome. Only great things to say about Tulio's.

I chose Tulio for my birthday date night. We started our meal with Hearts of Romaine salad, followed by the entrees: Agnolotti, Orecchiette and the Kurobuta Pork Shank. For dessert, the table shared the Nutella Bar, which was a mistake -- we devoured it within seconds, next time I'm getting my own, no sharing.
This experience was A+ from the food to the service (Juan); he was fantastic.

Food and service was exceptional. Noise level was a bit high for our liking. They placed a table less than 2 feet from us so people kept bruising up against me every time someone had to walk by. A little less crowding next time Tulio?!?

Great time was had. Food was about 8/10. Lamb dish was excellent. Prosecco to celebrate was complimentary. Risotto awful. Sent back because it smelt horrible and was runny.
Desert was just ok. Sour cream gelato was good. Our server was really helpful and informed.
Will go back to try again.

Tulio is always a lovely dining experience in Seattle. It feels cozy, but not pretentious; and the food is perfectly prepared every time. The service is very friendly--Seattle style--and attentive. We love it both for special occasions and as a predictably-fine everyday dining destination.

We had a wonderful time at Tulio! The sweet potato gnocchi and the lamb were amazing! This was easily the best lamb we've ever had! The service is great and the food is outstanding. While it's definitely on the more expensive side, it's worth it here! We will definitely visit again - thank you for a great night!
