Book a Table
- General Info:
- Opened in 1994, Nicola Marzovilla's warm and welcoming restaurant has been a favorite for 15 years for those in search of hearty, delicious Italian specialties. Chef Patti Jackson's celebrated menu draws on the regional cuisine of the Marzovillas' homeland, Puglia. Nicola's mother, Dora, prepares hand-rolled fresh pastas daily. The restaurant is famed for its all-Italian wine list (expertly selected by Marzovilla), and the adjoining Enoteca offers lighter food and by-the-glass choices. I Trulli is a popular destination all-year round: diners can sit by the glow of the main room's rustic fireplace in winter, while in the warmer months are treated to the lush splendor of one of Manhattan's finest outdoor garden spaces.

Four of us went to I Truilli last week because we heard it was decent. The service was not attentive at all. Out of the four dishes one was passable the other three were just plain awful. There really is no excuse because this place is not cheap. I would never go back nor would I tell anyone to come here.

I've here twice -- the first time for a regular dinner and the second time for Valentine's Day. My regular dinner of homemade pasta was amazing, but the Valentine's Day dinner and cattle room they herded all of the couples into was atrocious. Terrible service, cold food, all around awful experience. So great place, don't go there for V Day.

After reviewing the menu online and hearing such great things about this restuarant, i was very diappointed to say the least when i ate there last night. We started off with the panzoretti- Terrible! There was barely any cheese, nor did I see or taste tomatoes. It was more like a donut than a calzone. We also had the Inzimino and Pulpo - both very bland and uneventful. For a second course, we ordered two half orders of the Malloreddus and Tonnarelli. The pasta was good. You could definitely taste that it was homemade. The Malloreddus was delicious i must say! For entrees, we had the Zuppi di Pesce and Coda di Rospo. Both very bland. The Zuppi di pesce was so disappointing! Barely tasted like anything! The sauce was very watery. The monkfish was ok. Very simple. Nothing do go ""wow"" over. We didnt even bother attempting the desserts. Overall, I would never go back or recommend the restuarant.

Yes it was a crowed Hursday nightr but the table was terrible and the service amtched.
Ran out of 3 of the specials by 8.30 PM - the food was served at different times and was uneven.
The drink glasses were the size of shot glasses.
All and all not a good value

After reading a few of the recent reviews, I was a bit skeptical to keep our reservation for last Friday night(restaurant week) but I am so glad we did. It was trulli a wonderful experience. I didn't know about the back garden until we got there (and I didn't reserve it) but when I asked if we could sit there the hostess said it would be a few minutes wait (and it was less than a 10 minute wait). We had a lovely table in the back. We asked our waiter if he recommended the $35 prix-fixe (I explained that we are locals who dine out often) and he highly encouraged it - rightfully so. We started w/ the mini calzones (very good - but not part of the prix-fixe) and then we each got different appetizers and main courses - all were delicious. The service was excellent. We enjoyed our romantic evening and we were not rushed at all (unlike many other places during the 2 weeks). Granted the total bill came to $200 (incl. tax/tip) - so we didn't necessarily need to dine there when we did, but we still loved it.

Whatever you think Italian food should be, it will not be found here. I Trulli has become a restaurant that has outlived its time in New York. The review posted by JSirbs is accurate and fare. The food was simply bad from start to finish. If you are looking for a quality Italian meal, you will be disappointed. I think it is fair to say that I Trulli is nothing more than an OVERPRICED DINER disquised as an Italian restaurant. Do not waste your time or money like I did. Big mistake that I hope others will not follow.
