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

I've recently been to this Italian restaurant based in Seattle. As Italian visitor, I must say that it was the best dinner I had in downtown. Nice location, great service and good balance between quality and cost. Recommended.

I love Italian food. Period. Do I love Tulio? I love it. The location is perfect for visitors, such as myself. In the mood for a meal before the symphony- well, it is across the street. Staying by Pike Market - a few blocks away - good to walk off that great meal. Service is non-obtrusive but attentive. The wait... More

Four family members went to celebrate a birthday. Juan, our waiter attended to our every need! The food was excellent. We started with mussels and the sweet potato gnocchi. Both delicious .After hearing our dinner selections Juan suggested some suitable wine choices. He was bang on! Two had lamb, another had a mushroom pasta, and I had chicken with risotto.... More

There were about 14 of us and the drinks were constantly filled. The food was excellent and the staff seemed to be able to handle our large group just fine.

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.
