Step through the antique revolving doors of Tulio Ristorante and it's as if you've entered a bustling Italian trattoria in the heart of downtown Seattle. Chef Walter Pisano clearly puts his heart into this longstanding favorite, continuing to impress diners and critics alike. His boldly flavored dishes are both simple and sophisticated, combining rustic Italian preparations with fresh Pacific Northwest ingredients. Add to this our great location in downtown Seattle, our warm, intimate atmosphere and outstanding service and it's easy to understand why Tulio is widely regarded as one of the city's best restaurants.

Tulio’s was a little disappointing for breakfast. Food was not hot when served and not deserving more than it was pretty good. Not great. Service was okay.

Food was ok. Had to send 1 dish back, it was completely burnt. My dish was ok. Lacked any seasoning on the roasted red potatoes. It was difficult finding the ham in my omelet. Even though the wait staff was great the kitchen staff is in need of an upgrade.

We had high expectations based on TripAdvisor and Yelp. We were seated at the last table before the kitchen. My chair, with its' back to the waitstaff counter, was bumped multiple times by waitstaff passing by, with no apologies. The service, while courteous, was exceedingly slow. The bread was akin to cheap Wonder Bread, not delicious or Italian-tasting. The gnocchi starter was delicous; the pears in the burrata were out of a can and were not amazing. The entrees were tasty; the lamb & pork belly pasta were delicious. The chicken was very flavorful, although quick cool by the time it was served. The presentation of the Agnolotti, the only vegetarian entree offered by the waiter, was slop-like; a grey-colored goo covered the noodles, causing the dish to look very unappealing. We will not be returning and were disappointed in our experience.

Super as usual! Juan was our waiter and did a great job. He had good recommendations for us.
The food was terrific - pork and duck, some of our favorites presented in new ways. You won't be disappointed!

Portions were small and very bland tasting for the prices. Service marginal at best. Upon being seated, the bus person walked by us twice with a pitcher of water , once catching my eye, and kept on walking. As he walked by us a third time after stopping at tables on either side of us, I had to call out to him and ask if we could have some water . He either chose to ignore me or did not hear me, and kept walking. I ordered the risotto wich was served in an enormous bowl, but was the equivalent of a 1.5 measuring cup. It was under cooked and looked and tasted like oatmeal. This was a Valentine dinner and my lady was not impressed, especially after I had talked it up and told her about all the rave reviews?
