We had dinner at Tulio prior to our show at the 5th Avenue and all four of us were happy. While every meal was good, Highlights were the arugula salad, lamb, and risotto. This is our favorite restaurant prior to a show. Great for couples.

This bustling spot still has a quiet ambience, and is right in the heart of downtown Seattle. The service was superb, the wine list reasonably priced (it has mostly wines fromI Italy and the U.S.). All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals and were not devastated by the bill.

We just finished our dinner at Tulio's and can't stop talking about the experience. We were greeted warmly and seated at a wonderful table. Our waiter, Leah, approached us right away and she was friendly and knowledgable. She knew the menu, but more importantly, the subtleties of each dish. Leah didn't just tell us what the main components were, she... More

Started the evening with a complimentary glass of Prosecco and two long stemmed red roses as we had mentioned when we made the reservation that it was our anniversary. Our first dish was the mussels, it was exceptional, followed by an order of Orecchiette with sausage and rapini, cooked to perfection, then on to the Lamb and Pork Shank. The... More

We stayed at the Vintage Hotel which houses Tulio Ristorante. We ate at the restaurant for Sunday brunch and it did not live up to expectation. The staff was not very attentive. Took 3 requests to get slices of lemon for ice water. The waiter we had was not very friendly and had an attitude. Very disappointing experience.

I have had breakfast once at Tulio and lunch at least twice (within the last two years). I have not had dinner there yet but would be happy to do that too. Tulio is a formal restaurant where you expect that people have put some effort into what they are wearing. But at the same time the people that work... More

The lunch-time menu is short--salads, soup, pizza and pasta. My table ordered everything but the pasta. Everyone was satisfied with their orders in this older, elegant restaurant. Service was very good.

We had great experiences with the first courses and pasta dishes here. I especially loved the linguine with clams, which was excellent, even though I'm quite sure the pasta was from a box. But one friend didn't think her (non pasta) entree was anything special. Nice ambience. Overall, most of us were very happy with the meal.

We stayed at the Kimpton Vintage Hotel which is attached to the restaurant, so we ate breakfast at Tulio's daily. The eggs were varied by the day and were delicious as were the waffles. The coffee was also first-rate. We ate one dinner there and everything was great. Our waiter, Efrain, was very helpful, friendly, and efficient and his recommendations... More

Thanks for the breakfast compliments! We serve our favorite local roasted coffee (roasted just blocks away), Cafe Vita. So sorry we ran out of lamb - you'll have to come back, it's amazing! Thank you for being our guest. We truly enjoyed serving you. Cheers. More
