Had the opportunity to have dinner at Tulio Rest. It is downtown which makes it convenient. It was a few blocks from my hotel so I could walk, which was nice. Was able to get a table outside, which enhanced the experience as the evening was very pleasant. The staff was good but was always trying to upsell, which by... More

Tulio is a fine little restaurant in a cozy corner on 5th Ave downtown. The location is great, but don't count on dropping in without a reservation, just because you're in the area - that has not worked out well for me in the past. The food is all very good (particularly the chicken dish with risotto), but it's nothing... More

The food is excellent, and priced right. I'm a girl- so I hate places with oversized portions. When you reserve ask for a booth. The tables are REALLY close together.

We visited Tulio's nine years ago on a trip. It is still a wonderful restaurant. The pork shank was out of this world! We were treated to a clam shell booth and had a very attentive waiter. Wonderful all around!

We were staying at the Executive, just down the hill and our receptionist recommended Tulio for breakfast. It was excellent so we went back for dinner that evening and again for breakfast the next day. Breakfast had a good range of options, service was friendly and efficient and the restaurant was buzzing with tourists, business people and locals. Dinner took... More

The restaurant has private dining room upstairs. Classis atmosphere place. We ordered set dinner menu with some varieties. Bread is fresh baked, some interesting menus not common in Japan. Food was delicious. One of the restaurant I would like to dine when I visit Seattle.

We had a wonderful meal at Tulio. Excellent service and atmosphere. Reservation was exactly on time. There were 3 of us for dinner and all meals were delicious. I had the braised pork shank, served with ricotta mashed potatoes and a fruit compote. So tender I never used my knife. My companions had a roasted chicken dish and a pasta/sausage... More
