Chef Rob Rossi & David Minicucci, of Toronto favourite L'Unità, have collaborated to bring a genuine neighbourhood restaurant to Dufferin Grove.

Designed by acclaimed architect Guido Costantino Projects, a beguiling interior sets the stage for a convivial family-style dining experience that honours traditional Italian fare while showcasing stand-out ingredients.

Original brick and beam frame this warm, welcoming space where no detail is left unconsidered. Copper, Italian wool & red oxidized steel accents interplay with blonde wood and terrazzo, creating a rich, textured environment as enticing as Chef Rossi’s menu offerings.

Undercooked pasta (not al dente). Pizza was alright... dough was tough. Insalata verde (Salad) was on point. Overall, it’s over priced for what was served.

Sincerely,

Picky Italian

The service was great, food was slow and a lot of the dishes were somewhat cold. Wouldn’t go back or recommend to a friend.

a delightful restaurant; well worthy of all the accolades; top quality ingredients prepared perfectly ; great service; good choice of wines and a super sommelier who made a recommendation of an obscure wine that worked well with our dinner. It is a busy, trendy restaurant and reservations are needed well in advance

I’ve been to Giulettas a couple times and always enjoyed it however my last experience was dismal. Buratta was really bad - they should use another supplier. Beef tartare was served without a hit of seasoning - no salt whatsoever and when I complained, they brought salt to my table lol 😂 pizza and pasta was uninspired - new chefs maybe? Really downhill from my last visit

It was my birthday celebration and it was fabulous. From the minute we walked in the door everyone was very friendly. We immediately bonded with our server and the evening was exceptional--the food was creative and excellent, the wine was perfect and the cocktails which one of my guests ordered were creative and delicious. I have already recommended Giulietta to everyone who called to wish me happy birthday. We will definitely be back!!!

Nothing special. Octopus was over cooked and chewy, and there was nothing special about the pasta dishes.

This was our first time a Giulietta but certainly not our last. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list. The salad was totally amazing as were the olives, the fish and the pasta. The desert was truly decadent and worth the calories. This was a great find and we are so happy we got to try it out. We will definitely be back again.

Excited to try but for 2 dishes we waited 2.5 hours and the pasta arrived room temperature. The noise level is that of a bar so if you don’t want to hear your date it’s perfect. The place is over staffed and yet the food service is painfully slow.

Went there on the recommendation of one of our dinner guests. I was a little concerned when we went this far west from the typical yorkville or Bay Street environment. But after walking in with its modern yet warm ambience and attentive warm service I knew that we would be in good hands. The meal was incredibly well done. Noise level was minimal yet the restaurant was still lively and busy. Definitely returning for future visits. Highly recommended.

Sat at the " chef's counter" what a great experience. Despite the team (and very much a team) focus on serving customers they had time to explain what they were doing and some great tricks. Wonderful service and staff... will continue to visit

This was my 4th visit and always great and consistent with quality of food and service. Wanted to try different items this time and was very happy with everything.

Wait time was backed up but hostess and servers were accommodating and polite. Be sure to book a reservation but expect it to be busy as they may be backed up.

Not sure what the fuss is all about. Getting a reso here was tougher than a restaurant in the Hamptons in August....
Food was below par, apps took almost 1 hr to hit the table after ordering. When staff asked how is everything and was told of an issue they half apologized but didn’t try and fix the issue. Empty main plates were on table after bill was paid.

I’ll spend my money elsewhere next time.

Sat at Chef’s table and watched a fun spectacle: asked Chef to say Happy Birthday to my partner and he did so very happliy. Much charm accompanied by delicious offerings. My pork chop was not a great cut and my partner’s ragu was well above average. Restos like this require a higher standard. Hence the 4/5 rating.

The food at Giulietta is always amazing. It is the best Italian restaurant in the city, hands down. The service is always courteous and professional, and I cannot say enough good things about the Trippa alla Romana! Just get it.

Giuletta was generally disappointing. The décor is sleek, but boring and lacks character. The noise level was high.

We looked forward to the food, expecting memorable and unusual dishes. This did not happen. The TRIPPA alla ROMANA was served in a bland sauce. If there was pecorino in the dish, it was completely hidden. PACCHERI NERO ai GAMBERI had a few sad little shrimps and no evidence of 'nduja sausage. BISTECCA alla FIORENTINA was tender, but had little connection to the amazing bistecca in Firenze. The ASPARAGI al FORNO was similar to the baked asparagus I cook, when I am in a hurry - tasty, but not spectacular. The bread was amazing.

Giuletta's special secret is its service. From our greeting at the door to the presentation of the bill the staff did their best to assure our comfort and enjoyment.

BIG SIZZLE!!!! Polished , Precise, Sublime Service. Rob Rossi has created a Destination and Experience. Always fresh, tasty and exciting. A MUST Resto for anyone living or visiting Toronto. Try the chef’s bar for a different perspective and experience. Fabio rocks the Cuisine! I love the place for creating enduring memories. Few if any Restos could rival what they deliver here. From start to finish, just surrender yourself.
