delicous Italian close to the Crowne Plaza

Dined here with a friend on a Sunday night. It was busy and lively. Food was delicious and fresh, What I have come to expect from Kimpton affiliated restaurants. The gnocchi was awesome.

A great location near all major shopping attractions, this classic restaurant located on the ground floor of the Vintage Hotel, boasts a simple menu with some outstanding starters and plates. I ate here twice while I was recently in Seattle; dinner first and then lunch a few days later. I chose the restaurant in the first instance because of its... More

My husband and I were staying in the hotel (Vintage Hotel) adjacent to the restaurant. On our last night, we decided to see if we could get a table on a Sunday night at 7pm. The restaurant was crowded, but to our surprise, the hostess said she had a small table available in the bar. We had a window view... More

I like my pork crispy, and I was disappointed in both the pasta with pork belly at dinner and the bacon at breakfast. The pork belly was just fat, and the bacon was just cooked, not crispy at all. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the chicken, though.

Was staying at Hotel Monaco and asked the bartender for the best Italian Restaurant in Seattle and he said Tulio! Our waiter Santiago suggested the sweet potato gnocchi and it was fantastic! We then moved on to the main course, my wife had the salmon ravioli and I the Orecchiette. Both dishes even Gordon Ramsey would have raved about. The... More

One of the most fantastic meals I have ever had primarily thanks to the staff running the show! It was certainly an Anniversary to remember!

Visiting Seattle and wanted a great meal. Found it in Tulio. Relaxed warm decor, knowledgable service staff and outstanding food. For 6 people we tried the pork shank, lamb sirloin, roast chicken, orecchiette with sausage, ravioli with smoked salmon, and linguine with clams. We started with a deconstructed casear salad, butternut squash soup and the spectacular sweet potato gnocchi. My... More

Sat in the bar/ bistro part and it was nice darkish lighting. Food was super tasty with big flavours. The polenta was incredible and I don't normally like polenta. We never have desserts but shared the ice cream which came in an elaborate brandy snap and was heavenly. Enjoyed our evening very much.
