Tiella is a charming little restaurant with exposed brick and good service. However, the food ranges from very good to not good. The pastas are usually fresh and tasty. The chicken is void of any taste and so overcooked. While the fish is good, the portion is tiny, especially at that price. The salads also could be a bit bigger. The bread and pizzas are delicious. Hopefully management will care and fix those things that need improvement.

Would have never thought there's be good Italian food across from Bed Bath & Beyond and practically underneath the Queensboro Bridge. We've lived in the area for 3 years and just last night stumbled upon this little spot. Thursday at 9pm (on July 5th where everyone was apparently out of town) and the place was packed but we were seated within 10 minutes. Great tartufo pizza, chickpea fritters w/ fig and proscuitto, black and white linguine all fantastic!! Salad just okay, but i mean, its a salad. Authentic Italian with just enough creativity to the menu. Great wine list that fits all palates and budgets. It's a small space so I'd probably only come back here with my wife or another couple rather than a big group, but we will def be back very soon.

I have been looking for a pizza of this quality for years. It tastes as amazing as the pizzas I ate with my family in Italy during trips when I was a kid. I've tried small "authentic" pizzas from small Italian restaurants around New York, and this is the first place to get it right. The flavors were bright, crisp, creamy and rich--simply perfect! We will be back, and I'll be bringing my parents too.

Went to the restaurant a few days ago because of the excellent reviews on your website. My friend and I were really disappointed. The service was fine but the food could have been better. The half chicken, which was served on the bone, had very little meat and the meat was somewhat dry. The owner was very friendly and seems to want this new restaurant to succeed. Maybe they will improve the half chicken by making it moist and including more meat.

I love this restaurant! The food is wonderful and not your average Italian menu. The fish and pasta are superb and the small pizzas and desserts are worth a trip from the Upper West side.

Food was very (with the exception of the ravioli which was a bit bland) and the wine list was very reasonable. Great for two to six people. Went with six and it was a little crowded for the size of the restaurant, but the service was great. Tried four different appetizers and all were delicious. Would definitely go back with a smaller group.

Not a place you'd expect to find in a dull section of the UES, Tiella offers a new and exciting twist on Italian cuisine. The restaurant is small but superbly laid out and decorated. The service was genuine and, most importantly, the food (& the bread!)was stellar. It's hard to master risotto, but Tiella did it. If you're looking for a delicious spin on your run-of-the-mill Italian food, try Tiella - just make sure you call in advance for a reservation.
