Adjoining the Kimpton Hotel Vintage this is a fine Italian eatery. We have eaten dinner before because sometimes you just want to go up the elevator after dinner. This trip we elected to sit at a nice table for two in the bar by a window overlooking 5th Avenue. Good choice. Although they had tables set up along the sidewalk... More

I had a wonderful halibut salad for lunch and loved it. My lunch companion had a signature salmon ravioli dish, but didn't care for it all that much. I didn't try it.

We were looking for a restaurant with outside dining. Maybe because of all the rain in Seattle this was surprisingly difficult. We happened upon Tulio while walking back to our hotel. There were a few tables outside so we decided to stop for dinner and am I glad we did! We had the most delightful experience starting with the wine... More

We have eaten at Tulio's many time before but was unable to get our busy schedule with their hours of operation to connect. We were able to catch a drink in the bar just as it was closing...our loss. We stopped by for breakfast and had just missed the serving hours so we missed out again...dang! Better luck next time.

With some trepidation about a hotel restaurant, we tried Tulio, Italian fare. From the quality and service in the bar to the three courses, all were fabulous. We will certainly return some day.

The restaurant had a very warm ambiance. The staff was very nice. And the service was excellent. The food was prepared and presented well. The only exception was my pasta seemed like it was not prepared to order. The linguini was broken and did not appear to be fully cooked; as thought it had been sitting around on a hot... More

Popped in for lunch a few hours before my flight back to SF. Great service. My first dirty Kettle was delicious. The sauvignon blanc is good. My friend and I shared the sweet potato gnocchi for starters. Cooked perfectly - light and fluffy with a crunchy exterior. I had the chicken with lemon risotto. OMG. Best dish I've had in... More

I was visiting Seattle for a corporate convention and had occasion to visit Tulio twice during our stay. Both visits were memorable and I wouldn't miss it on my next trip to Seattle. The restaurant is very warmly decorated, carpeted, dark woods, with low ceilings and great lighting. Although it is not a large restaurant, the design and decor provide... More
