Great place, fire place. Appetizers were all very good. Eggplant, grilled calamari, grilled octopus, Chickpea Fritters with goat cheese. Main course Veal chops were terrific, with broccoli rape and roasted baby potatoes. Orecchiette with Rabbit Ragu was delicious. Nice selection of moderate priced wines.

This is a very nice Italian restaurant with waiters that anticipated our every need. Although Italian we ended up getting the seafood special. The restaurant isnt cheap but by NY standards reasonable. We had a lovely romantic dinner.

The food is sensational a wide selection of Italian food beautifully presented and tasting even better.

We found this place by accident on our way to the New York comedy club and it was brilliant. I had pasta with a rabbit ragu which was absolutely delicious, I'd never tasted anything like it before. My partner and my Dad had a saffron and sausage pasta which they also really enjoyed. I would definitely recommend a visit if... More

Came here on a Saturday night and although great reviews and busy, they were able to seat me outside with no reservation. Ordered the main course (veal chop) which was amazingly succulent, and a had glass of very nice Puglia wine. Service was friendly, though a tad slow at times (mainly due to the number of customers). Food was delicious... More

I don't want to be critical, but we ate in this restaurant 2 weeks after returning from a vacation in Apulia. So we had high expectations and some very genuine experiences to compare this food to. The restaurant serves the food of Apulia- Italy's heel. The menu is representative of the food of Apulia/Puglia. Lot's of veggies, multiple rabbit dishes,... More

I've been to this restaurant numerous times and return every time I'm in NYC. This is the place where you can find authentic Italian dishes. Dora makes her special fresh orecchiette as you enter the restaurant, the service is excellent and the variety of dishes is quite vast.

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.
