“Ok without being very good or exceptional”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

It was fine without being very good or exceptional. First of all, they don't make any of their own pastas with the exception of the gnocchi. And because of that, I find their prices to be a bit on the high side for what they offer, particularly because it does not come with soup or salad. That makes this place quite pricey for what it is.

Sauces are pretty decent and taste fresh. Veal meatballs are ok, a bit on the small side and quite a bit too salty. Bread given before the meal is pretty good.

Ambiance is really lacking. Wait staff is very hospitable. I also found it very strange that many things you would expect to be on the menu were not- lasagna not on the menu, meatballs not on the menu as examples but they have both.

Am I upset I went there? No, not at all (except I think it was about 25% more expensive than it should have been). Would I go back? If someone said meet me @ Tulipano- it's my favorite. Otherwise, I'd try something different.

“3 Cheese lasagna very good.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

I don't know if this place is still open for business. I ordered the 3 cheese lasagna which wasn't on the menu and they prepared it deliciously. So good.

“A little Italian restaurant fill with complete italian emotions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013 via mobile

I have been in Italy, and this restaurant made me feel that I was in a little restaurant in Italy. The littke details made the difference. The oil and vinager botlle is super cute. The food was excellent everything looks fresh and that somebody in the kitchen is taking the time to make everything correct.
I am definetely going every time I can.
