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.
This restaurant was recommended to me by a close friend and it didn’t disappoint. Everything tasted so fresh and the food was delicious!
The service was incredible - every single person who worked there was so nice and inviting!
I definitely want to go back again and try all the other dishes on the menu!
Excellent dinner all around. Highly recommend.
After trying this once, this is now one of our favourites.
One word. Incredible. All aspects. So fun
First time diners but definitely not last. Delectable food, outstanding service and a perfectly art directed environment made for a seamless dining experience.
How refreshing to experience a restaurant where each and every member of the enthusiastic and perfectly efficient staff look like they are lovin’ it!
Fantastic experience and great food. The service was exceptional and the space is lovely.
Service was friendly and food was good. Received a phone call just before my 6pm reservation letting me know a large group was coming at 8:15 - long story short - I’ve been made aware of 2-hour seatings in more graceful ways before. Service was friendly but quickly crossed from attentive to feeling like we were being rushed.
Food was good, drinks were excellent, restaurant is pretty. Service was suffocating.
Chloe our server was outstanding ! Food was perfect wouldn’t change a thing
Phenomenal service, simple and elegant design and relaxed ambiance. All round great experience.
This is my new favourite Italian restaurant in the city- lucky that it’s right by me. The service was excellent and the food even better- highly recommend sitting at the chef’s counter.
Wonderful staff, delicious meal! Perfect night
Food, service and ambiance was perfect. Food came out in a timely fashion and was delicious, definitely try the pizza! Our server was very nice, water was always refilled. They take allergies seriously as well which is nice to see. Would recommend!!
Amazing new spot! Great food and awesome ambience. Definitely going back!
Food is great. Highly recommend the fennel salad, octopus and pizza.
Good service. Restaurant gets a little noisy when full.
Amazing amazing dinner experience! Great, friendly, professional and knowledgeable service, delicious food, great ambiance! Can’t wait to go back!
Can’t say enough about this place, I love it!
Truly an amazing and unique experience from the cocktail to the pine nut tarte dessert!
Great atmosphere, attentive service always smiling and incredible food. This is chefs Rob best yet. Congratulations!
Read about it in the Post's top 50 restaurants. The menu listed some creative dishes. The actual dining experience lived up to expectation. The grilled octopus on a bed of polenta was tender and tasted wonderfully charred. The pasta special of gnocchi and ground lamb was satisfyingly al dente. The neapolitan style thin crust pizza was wonderfully charred throughout, not just around the edges. Will definitely return.
This was my first time going and chose it for a surprise dinner for 6. Chose it based on reviews, friends and trying it. I had reserved my party for 8:30pm. We had asked our guests to arrive earlier as the birthday boy was coming a bit later. Unfortunately our table was set way after 8:30pm and we were stood waiting for our table. Unfortunately our table wasn’t set on time and the birthday boy had already arrived. We were met with a ruined surprise and was utterly disappointed as we were on time. Overall the service, value, taste and portions of the food was on point. For future parties please make sure your staff and tables are set on time for reservations.
Fantastic restaurant with a great menu and very attentive staff. The chef and kitchen staff were incredibly approachable and provided insight and info on all of the dishes we had. I would highly recommend going here.
Food was fantastic. Was there a few times when it was Bestellen and the new decor and menu did not disappoint . We will be back!
I was SURE my reservations were for Saturday rather than Friday. The error was completely my fault. When my husband and I showed up on Saturday night promptly at 9:15 and the error was realized, Giulietta was epitome of class and grace - hostess especially. I wish I had asked her name so I could mention it here. Feeling pretty foolish about my mistake, she insisted we were welcome and that it would be Giulietta’s pleasure to seat us as soon as they possibly could. We enjoyed a delicious Sangiovese while we waited. Dinner was excellent. Had the prosciutto and Piave app, grilled octopus, long Roman pasta and spicy soppresata pizza. Service impeccable. Thank you Giulietta for a great experience.
Everything was excellent. Staff very attentive. A touch too much sauce on pizza.
This chef is great. Flavours are sophisticated. Plates are totally satisfying. Service was excellent. We sat at chef’s counter and got a lot of friendly attention. Love this place.
The octopus and the pizza with pistaccios was exquisite! Highly recommended!
Actually an incredible place! Owners were so nice, customer service was incredible and the food was amazing! Would recommend to anyone for any occasion.
Delicious - the staff was extremely helpful and v friendly. The food delicious and plentiful. To me, the desserts were great, but probably the weakest part of the whole food experience. The cacio pepe was sick though. Defo would go for Cacio again.
This restaurant is fantastic!!! Went last night and sat at the chefs bar- chef rob was so friendly and his staff were amazing to watch - everything that came out of that kitchen looked absolutely delicious!!! I actually wanted to eat everything!!! My husband and I could not decide. We started with cocktails that were refreshing and so good!! We shared the fried olives- yum! The octopus- yum! The steak- incredible , Rapini- yum! A cheese plate and pavlova- This meal was one of the best meals that I have had in a long time!! And our server was lovely and top knotch!!!The decor is also really chic- I can not wait to go back!!!
Found this restaurant on a blog of hot new restaurants to try in Toronto and so happy we made the drive from out of town. The food, the service, the music, the ambience were all amazing. We will be back.
For the type of food we found this a bit over priced.
Our experience here was great! The food was authentic, like family cooking. The ambience was very relaxed and comfortable, with beautifully decorated surroundings. The service was quick, hospitable and knowledable. All the details, down to the coat check card were well thought out and very authentic! We had a great time and would return.
One of the best service experiences I’ve had from start to finish, from all the staff. Food was delicious as well. Definitely get the mushroom dish. We paired it with the Cacio e Pepe pasta and it was wonderful. Sit at the chefs bar if possible. Very interactive and you get to see the food being made first hand. Very impressive!
Was very disappointed with Giuletta's service. My friend and I arrived for at 8:50pm for a 9:00pm reservation. We weren't seated until 9:30pm. Other guests that arrived after us got seated before us. There was no apology about the long wait . They did not even offered us a complimentary cocktail or appetizer while we waited 30 mins for our reservation. Standard customer service etiquette would of offered something to their guests.
One of the best dining experiences I had for a long time. Service was excellent, food was prepared and presented very well and pricing was fair.
Food, service, selection, etc... Everything was amazing! Each course you order is meant to be shared, very traditional and my favorite way to dine. Amazing wine selection and sommelier on site to help you pair and ensure wine is at highest quality, very impressed!
The octopus was amazing. Pricey drinks add up fast. Service was excellent, noise level pretty good. Fun to sit at the chef's counter and watch them cook and prep meals.
very original dishes
nice wine list
This new restaurant is exceptional. It is the sister restaurant to L’Unita in Yorkville and is every bit as wonderful. The attention to detail in the whole experience is second to none. The food is classic Italian dishes that have been tested and refined and perfected. There were incredible flavours and perfect moments. We could not be happier to welcome this new venture to our city!
Food is delicious. Great choices.
Cocktails are creative and very well prepared.
Unfortunately not a place for a 'quiet conversation' which was fine for us but may be a problem if that's what you're after.
