I went with three business associates and they worked us in without reservations which was very appreciated on a cool night in Seattle. I ordered the ravioli with smoked salmon as well as sharing a plate of antipasto. The appetizer of antipasto could have been a little more fulfilling but was enjoyable. The ravioli was quite tasty with a nice sauce. The house cabernet was a good companion. I enjoyed the restaurant and meal as all of my associates did but, we all felt it was a bit over priced compared to other similar Italian spots.

Tulio is always great. Food and service, on our recent visit, more than lived up to our expectations. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary. Quite simply, Tulio could do no wrong. The gnocchi was superb, as was the fish special of the day: swordfish. For dessert we had pistachio semi-freddo.
The wine list is very good, and Tulio has an excellent selection of grappo.

Celebratory dinner for two during a weekend stay at the Vintage Park. Excellent service from a server who was obviously passionate about the menu and wine list. Antipasti plate was very good. Risotto was very good. Lamb sirloin not to my liking (too gamey). Really appreciated the decanting of wine we ordered. All in all, a good experience.

Tulio is a lovely spot for a holiday dinner - the 2-story space is full of dark wood, candlelight, and holiday greenery. The food is excellent as always, and service is professional and pleasant. The sweet potato gnocchi appetizer is to die for! The pork belly with regular gnocchi, accented with thin slices of caramelized nectarine, was also superb. There are several pasta choices, including a spicy sausage orecchiete that was tasty. I had a delicious pork shoulder served over cheesy polenta. We took home enough leftovers for a second meal, and sadly didn't have room for dessert. The wine list includes a nice selection of options by the glass.

We celebrated my birthday at Tulios and had a memorable experience. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly and the food courses arrived in good time - not a long wait but not rushed either. We shared the antipasti misti and a burrata and both were excellent. We all had pasta for our main courses and everyone was happy with their choice. Good portions - not huge but plenty. We shared a pistachio semifreddo for dessert and it was amazing - maybe my favorite dessert ever! The decor was attractive and the atmosphere was lively. A very enjoyable evening out.
