Tullia’s is an Italian restaurant on Route 73 North on the West Berlin/Voorhees border. Tullia’s does not serve liquor, but does allow patrons to bring their own wine and champagne. We arrived early on a weekday and had no trouble getting a table. We were greeted immediately and taken to our table. Our waitress was fantastic and friendly, and the atmosphere was nice. The restaurant was clean and gave a good appearance.
We ordered a special appetizer called Broccoli Rabe and Sausage Crustini. It featured sautéed broccoli rabe with garlic and thinly sliced sausage served over garlic bread similar to bruschetta, only it was served hot. It was very good and left me hopeful for a good dinner.
The first entree, Chicken Giordano, featured chicken breast rolled with prosciutto, roasted red peppers and fresh mozzarella cheese topped with a blush tomato sauce. The second was a traditional eggplant parmigiana and the third was Shrimp Francese which was egg battered shrimp in a lemon and white wine sauce over pasta. The eggplant parmigiana was very good, cooked perfectly and had an excellent taste. The Shrimp Francese featured 4 jumbo shrimp over a bed of pasta. While the shrimp was very good, but the dish overall was a bit bland. It wasn’t bad, just not really my style. The Chicken Giordano was served with so much sauce that you couldn’t make out what was underneath. There were two chicken breasts and an ample amount of pasta. The chicken was a tad dry, but had great flavor when combined with the prosciutto, mozzarella and red peppers.
Again, I can’t say enough about the service and our waitress in particular. She went out of her way for us, was patient and prompt. She checked to make sure everything was ok, was on top of drink refills, and kept our table well detailed, but didn’t hover or over do it. Overall it was a good dining experience though I did find the place to be a bit pricy, especially since there isn’t a bar to drive up the price. Nonetheless, I’d certainly return to Tullia’s in the future.
