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.

Enjoyed food very much. Food was excellent.

By comparison, Selection of white wines by glass was poor and limited. Tasted two white options by glass - neither was excellent; these wines by glass were maybe just poor to average.

Giulietta came highly recommended for the food--and they did not disappoint! The octopus appetizer, the oxtail ragu pasta, and the brussels sprouts side dishes were the highlights. The seafood main, cauliflower side and Nutella-flavoured "soft serve" gelato we shared for dessert were very good, but just not as great as the other dishes we had. Decor was nice, nothing special. The Cynar-based cocktail we had was tasty, and the wine accompanying the seafood was good (perhaps a bit too dry for our tastes, though!). However, the service was very good--super professional, humourous, impeccable--and perhaps the best accompaniment to the meal!!

Another amazing meal. There are so many things that Giulietta does superbly. The experience from front of house to back of house is seamless though. The staff are incredibly hospitable, and really want to let you enjoy the meal. They know the food so well, and the wine and drinks inside out. My companion has Celiac, and they made her feel 100% confident. We sat at the counter and enjoyed the interaction with the chefs and cooks. Most importantly, they were having fun. You can tell how well a restaurant is run by the laughter in the kitchen. Thanks G, another great dining experience.

The entire experience was outstanding. It was a little louder than I anticipated, which made conversation a little more challenging but that is my only gripe. The food was delicious, the service was seamless and we had a wonderful anniversary dinner. We will most definitely return soon. Worth every penny!

Printing on menu might be a bit bigger for older folks like us, and with the lighting levels which are wonderful but just harder to read.

The sub par service completely overshadowed the tasty food. Although we had a reservation, we waited 20 minutes before being seated. It took over an hour to receive the main course from the time we ordered the appetizers, even though we asked for all food to be brought out as soon as it was ready. Knowing we were celebrating a birthday, I expected a tiny dessert to offset the service issues, but it was not offered.

The grilled octopus is to die for. So tender and perfect. The pappardelle with oxtail rage is my second favourite thing on the latest menu.
This is my new favourite italian restaurant in the city.

One of the more modern style Italian restaurant. Food is great and each dish is designed to be shared so that's a definite plus. Will definitely recommend it.

Was a wee bit disappointed that we got bumped to the chefs table . Very busy night
Perhaps because we were two women
Still a good experience but felt looked over .

Food and ambiance are tremendous. Service is second to none. Seating can be a bit of a challenge if only 2 are dining. Bartenders and wine expert are super knowledgeable.

1. the carne cruda (steak tartare) was absolutely tasteless (we are fans of steak tartare and this was one of the worst examples we've had).
2. the trippa alla romana (roman style tripe) was the best of all the dishes we had and we enjoyed it very much.
3. the reginette ragu had nice pasta, but was short on ragu.
4. the cioppino was A JOKE--a scant serving of seafood on a flat plate (not even a bowl) that cost $33.00
5. the guanduja torta was excellent.

Generally Giulietta is an overpriced, pretentious noisy place with too long a menu with some dishes executed well and others not.

We had one pizza and two pasta courses and they were delicious. Great ambience and overall an upscale non stuffy dining experience. Soft serve gelato wasnt amazing but that’s about the only negative.

This was our second time eating here. Overall good experience. Service slightly complacent versus the first time. Our first glass of Rose was slightly warm. The burrata was delicious but unfortunately served with underripe peaches. The porterhouse steak was fantastic and cooked to perfection. I am gluten free and there is very little to eat for dessert. Only choice was homemade Nutella gelato but it arrived without the promised hazelnuts. Server should know what contains gluten and not promised it! I suspect it was a hazelnut crumble that likely contained some breadcrumbs and therefore the kitchen sent it without.

Nice place, the people are very friendly, great ambiance. But tables are extremely close together and we were all but dining with the two tables on either side of us which was a little uncomfortable. I feel like they just try to fill it. Food was really good with high quality ingredients, but extremely overpriced for the small portions you get. Drinks are well made, but also very expensive for the amount you get. Basically a typical Toronto restaurant with hype. Good place overall though!

Decor is stunning. My meal was ok but not as good as I expected. The burrata was too dense on the inside and there were a disappointing few pieces of tomato in the salad especially since it’s the season. The cucumber salad was not a flavour I liked so I didn’t eat it. The Reginette al ragu was good. Wine list is good. Overall underwhelmed. I would like to give it another try.
