I went here with business colleagues and we enjoyed fantastic food and wine. Our service was great but it was really slow. The sweet potato gnocchi was excellent and if you enjoy a legitimate Caesar salad, this is your place.

Fabulous meal and service at reasonable prices. Roberto, the maitre'd and Antonio our server, were exceptional. We relied on their expertise and we were richly rewarded. The sweet potato gnochi and salads were delicious. We had the halibut and roasted chicken and both were beautifully presented and flavorful. We shared the special dessert of the evening which was a pistachio based frozen custard. Bellissimo !!! Antonio was particularly helpful in our wine selection. Looking forward to our next return.

Tulio is cozy and comfortable without feeling crowded. The menu is filled with local food options, and for a downtown hotel restaurant, is reasonably priced (most entrees are in the $20-$30 range). There is a bar in the restaurant, too, with a nice wine list.

Pasta- not so much.

Good restaurant with great atmosphere and service. It you want a good Italian wine list they seem to have one. If your hankering for pasta they just don't for the bill and unfortunately we were.

I needed up settling for Rib Eye which was good. My wife ordered special of the day which was Salmon. She thought it was amazing. No complaints except depth of menu. Food was good. Service was amazing.

Service very good and classic old dining room. Wine selection good but seemed overpriced.
Food seemed very heavy, I like more finesse. Larger than necessary portions.

I especially disliked the lamb, too charred on the outside. Cooked inside exactly as ordered. Sweet potato gnocchi too heavy and oven baked. Not enough gorgonzola sauce. My wives clams on pasta very good, very large.
