Good restaurant with good food. Our waiter was a little bit beaten up (blue eye and all) and distacted. But it was quite busy. Day menu and other recommends not very clear and know by heart. We were by a group of 6 not reserved on a fridayevening and not a problem. When asknin advanced we could pay by couple.

Very lively place with good food. Celebrated double wedding anniversaries at dinner--two couples. Tulio did right by us. Gave us exactly the kind of table we requested and even laid four long-stem red roses in preservation vials on the table to await our arrival. Very nice touch! Wine list was good. Food disappointed a bit. First, after assuring the ladies... More

We ordered room service from the Hotel Vintage (Tulio provides the room service menu). Our breakfast was delicious. My husband loved his omelette and I loved my eggs and rosemary potatoes. Portions were the ideal size and the food was beautifully prepared. The house made sausage was amazing. Next time we've got to fit in a dinner visit.

Food is not what it has been in the past. Service remains very good. Last 2 visits were a bit disappointing; waited too long for average or cold food.

Had both New Years Eve dinner and New Years brunch. Dinner service was slow and the food quality was not up to previous visits. The limited brunch was extremely disappointing. Service was slow to non-existent. Very limited 'Holiday' menu. My wife tried the Continental . Very pricey dry toast and a couple of pieces of fruit!

We ate here at the recommendation of our concierge when we asked for a close Italian restaurant. A block from the hotel, it exceeded our expectations! We ate early, so the waiter had time to tell us about their non-traditional menu. The chef sent out a small mouthful (amuse busse?) to tempt us. We ate a leisurely meal; our waiter,... More

I went here with business colleagues and we enjoyed fantastic food and wine. Our service was great but it was really slow. The sweet potato gnocchi was excellent and if you enjoy a legitimate Caesar salad, this is your place.

Fabulous meal and service at reasonable prices. Roberto, the maitre'd and Antonio our server, were exceptional. We relied on their expertise and we were richly rewarded. The sweet potato gnochi and salads were delicious. We had the halibut and roasted chicken and both were beautifully presented and flavorful. We shared the special dessert of the evening which was a pistachio... More

Tulio is cozy and comfortable without feeling crowded. The menu is filled with local food options, and for a downtown hotel restaurant, is reasonably priced (most entrees are in the $20-$30 range). There is a bar in the restaurant, too, with a nice wine list.
