Great service. The location is random and not in a neighborhood known for restaurants, which is why I think this place isn’t better known. The chickpea fritters were delicious, and the pastas were good too.

Midtown east can be hard to dine in, the food was exceptional, the chickpea fritter with prosciutto and stracciatella and burrata were top notch and they split the portions for easy sharing. The short rib and oriechette with sausage were to die for. Try the...More

I came in relatively early on a Sunday evening after a walk across the bridge. I was not as thrilled with the food as some Yelp reviewers – I had the pappardelle with the short rib ragu. It was very good, but not amazing. The...More

Tiella serves modern Southern Italian cuisine. Its inventive and sophisticated menu is inspired by and elevates the home-cooked meals and peasant culinary traditions owners Giuseppe Castellano and Mario Coppola were raised with in Naples, Italy. Indeed, Tiella takes its name from the Neopolitan word for a cast-iron pan that is used for baking, grilling or frying meats, fish and breads. Our signature tiellas are pizza-like appetizers baked in our wood-fired oven. Our philosophy is that the greatest meals require the finest ingredients. We import mozzarella di bufala, stracciatella and other fine cheeses, as well as risotto and prosciutto from Italy. Many other ingredients are sourced from local producers and farmers. To ensure that we serve the very best bread and pasta, we make our own. The extensive wine list is comprised of Italian makers and complements the menu.
