Bar Tulia in the Mercato section of Naples Florida is a gem! Chef Vincenzo Betulia has created a great venue for hand crafted drinks and great Italian & mezza fare for sharing. With quaint indoor dining and an expansive terrace, the ambiance is warm and welcoming. Mercato is a new part of Naples with multipurpose dinning, shopping office and residential space.

Chef Betulia has created a menu where you can put together a wonderful tasting of all his creations. Whether it be the hand tossed pizza, the caramelized brussel sprouts, the fried chicken bucket, the seasonal beet salad, or the entrees they are all delicious. Each item is fresh, tasty and hand made. The flavors were what appealed to me.

The libations are another story as each is hand crafted with their own individual taste and story. If not in the mood for a cocktail, there is an extensive list of wines and sparking for every taste. Bar Tulia has a location on 5Th avenue south in downtown Naples however the Mercato is convenient if you are not close to downtown and I adore their patio for sheer relaxation. Bar Tulia is the perfect location to take it easy for a great libation and mouth watering fare.
