Decided on Tulio after reading other reviews and on travel sites, and wasn't disappointed! Food was delicious, my husband got the lamb with mint sauce and I had the chicken with lemon risotto, both dishes were wonderful. Decided to try the gelato with pollen which was a surprising delight. Highly recommend
An overall excellent experience. Everyone in our group of 8 was more than satisfied with the food - save one person who sent back a side dish of brocollini rabe. Waiter handles that graciously and took it off the bill.
Realized I've been going to Tulio's since 1990...It is amazingly consistent with high quality food, service and ambiance. Everything I order there is exquisitely flavorful. The service is always kind and the traditional décor is timeless.
Service was great, absolute best waitress i’ve ever had. Extremely attentive.
Wonderful Italian food. Service was great. Wine choices excellent. Great old world ambiance. A must if in Seattle.
Tulio's servers were very attentive. Their coffee was good. I would go there way more often if they had vegan options.
The food was very good but the service was very slow. The group of women at the next table were very loud.
I’d go back again for the food.
We ate at Tulios for the first time last week. We are returning to Seattle in a couple of weeks and will definitely reserve a table in Tulios. The wines are gorgeous accompaniments to their food. We really enjoyed everything about Tulios. I may give it a 5 star rating on all caregories next time, but let's wait!,,
The Chicken dish was wonderful, as well as the Pork
Arrived and we were immediately greeted with a warm reception and then quickly taken to our table. Our waiter Noah was very prompt and knowledgeable about the spring menu (he was very patient with our inability to pronounce the entrees).
The service was outstanding. The atmosphere good for drinks or date night, it was stage latter for us.
Meals were portioned for just the perfect amount of food to fill you, but leave you feeling good about not over eating.
It was a perfect place to start our date night off right. We have driven past Tulio every time we left the 5th Avenue Theatre—thought we’d give it a go and we’re glad we did.
Thank you for making this couple date night.

I took my family for a breakfast and this was my first time at this restaurant. I was expecting to see a very different look and feel in the restaurant. The food was fair not a lot of choices/options. The service was great and this was the best part of the restaurant. Thank you!!
Went here for our anniversary and the waiter treated us like we would be a “cheap ticket” and therefore a “cheap tip” and went out of his way to offer other services like wine and different tastings or samples to tables around us that were in suits. (I’m less than 30 and look young and I had just got off work and was in a plaid button up and and dress pants.) really good food and nice atmosphere but the service made it not worth it.
I recently moved back to Seattle after almost 20 years away. In the wave of change that has overtaken the city, it's nice to know that places like Tulio are still around, and still as good as they back then. Kudos to all and I definitely plan to return.
Tulio is an excellent restaurant. I am Italian and I love the food and service. Nick was our waiter and he was great. We come to Tulio several times a year. This week it was my husband's birthday and it was delicious!
Evening at theater
Great food and fast service!
We haven't been to Tulios in a long time. Food was great, except for the broccoli rabe, but everything else including the service was great.
Ambiance was superb. Food was excellent. Service was a little slow but we weren’t in hurry. Had lamb & risotto & they were both excellent. Great place to dine. I’ll be back.
Good solid choice. We would come again, for the home made pastas. Great service. Nice space.
I love the ambiance of Tulio's: small and cozy. The food it great, although I wish they would change up the menu. The choices are few and have been the same for years. The service is always solid. In fact, my daughter left her purse and the host ran two blocks to track us down!
Amazing and incredible cuisine. Attentive, professional service and the food is truly noteworthy. Well thought out and creative cuisine with original touches that enhance your dining experience. Job well done....
Just a bit too noisy to really enjoy; but we are loyal patrons of Tulios and Vintage!
Delicious Italian food. The tables and bar are all cozy, and the service is excellent, making for a perfect romantic evening.
Our food was superb. The portions were good. The staff were fantastic. The wine list was extensive.
Decent food - Great mimosas - Friendly and fast service - Somewhat expensive
Good but a bit pricey.
None of the options as to why I would recommend Tulios fitted my feelings. We had a delicious dinner, the service was beyond reproach which all added to a marvelous evening.
What an excellent restaurant. My wife and I dined prior to going to the 5th Avenue Theatre. What a score $10 valet parking and only a block to the theater. Our server, Juan, was great. He has a great personality and is very attentive. He made several suggestions to make our dinner more pleasurable.
We started off sharing the beat salad which was absolutely delicious.
We both had the Kurabota braised pork shank. Outstanding! Perfectly cooked and fall off the bone.
Tiramisu for desert and then off to show. No additional charges for leaving the truck.
Thank you Tulios. We shall return.
Excellent food and service!
We shared grilled radicchio salad and a feather-light pizza of prosciutto, arugula, and fresh ricotta. There were big bubbles in the pizza crust. We were in heaven.
Saw a review that said previously the chicken and risotto was good but the last time was dry. Saw that the restaurant replied and so I thought they must have fixed the problem. Wrong. Chicken still way too dry. Risotto was oily not creamy. Don’t order. Husband’s pasta was good as were the beet salads.
Excellent...as always! Tulio has been one of our favorite restaurants for many years!
We had a wonderful experience! Great food, wine and extremely good service!
Granola and three different breakfast dishes with eggs, potatoes, bread, were all said to be fine and came very quickly. Espresso was excellent. Tea choices were basic and the water wasn't hot enough, but that's the case almost anywhere. The host was extremely pleasant and accommodating in an elegantly understated manner. The server, Stephanie (according to the receipt), was a bit abrupt and made you feel rushed. The check came long before we thought to ask for it (usually one has the opposite problem in Seattle-area restaurants, they forget you when it's time to get the check), and the earlier request to separate the bills for the two sides of the table had gone ignored. The server rushed off before one could even mention anything about this. We gave up and in, because it was obviously hopeless to try and communicate with this person other than volunteering your order and the occasional "thank you". At $100 including tips this was neither inexpensive nor expensive, just about reasonable.
Efren was our server, knowledgeable, friendly, efficient. He suggested we share the 1st & 2nd courses which turned out to be an excellent idea for us. We each had a salad, the hearts of romaine salad was the best, great dressing. We shared the linguine w/clams, a little spicy & excellent, lots of fresh clams & the lamb was delicious. If you like red wine, try the Veronese, it was divine.
Had a wonderful evening for a special occasion.
Food is exquisite and the service exceptional.
I have been to Tulio many times. It never disappoints. Everyone in my party loved it.
Need to mix up the specials more often. We were offered the same specials the last 3 times we were there.
This place is so good my wife and I have drove from Vancouver Canada on four separate occasions to have dinner here.
Every few months my date and I hit a well-reviewed restaurant in Seattle before going to see the Opera. Truth to be told, while opera is an excuse to go out, the restaurant we pick is often the highlight for me. Tulio, while pricey, was fantastic, starting with impeccable, friendly service to the delicious and thoughtfully prepared food.
