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.

Good food, but too crowded - wait staff standing between tables in too narrow space while serving table beside ours. Timing of food also needs work - four dishes dropped all at the same time is not good service

Service was extremely slow.
The restaurant was very busy and we felt totally ignored.
Water was poured and then it took 25 minutes to be asked if we wanted a drink.
The meal service was also extremely slow.
We were very disappointed and decided to leave without having desert or coffee.

Had a splendid time here! Got to sit at the Chef's table so that was super exciting, the kitchen staff were all very busy but knew how to keep guests entertained. All super friendly and the FOOD WAS INCREDIBLE! Favourite was the grilled squid to start. You could really tell that it was fresh by its tenderness. Will definitely be coming back to try more of their menu!

We were sooo excited about this meal, but it was very disappointing. The service was very slow and food was underwhelming (except for one excellent agnolotti dish). The space is beautiful though and we loved the host.

We sat at the Chefs Bar, which is well worth the experience. Each cook (chef) was friendly, and watching the kitchen flow is inspiring. The chefs chose a few items for us based on their favorites and must-haves. So awesome. Get the pizza - the dough was thin and rich, and it held up beautifully to the spicy Keller, tomatoes, and dry sausage. Each course is well planned and skillfully executed. It’s spendy and completely worth it. Chef Rob and his team are very talented!

This restaurant exceeded all expectations from start to finish. We were thankfully seated at the chefs bar which provided us with the experience of interacting with the very friendly and talented chefs. The food handling and exceptionally clean work areas were very reassuring, particularly when ordering a raw dish like beef tartar. Chef Rossi, was very welcoming and even provided some recommendations for restaurants on my next trip to NYC! Would highly recommend to anyone, particularly if you get to sit at the chefs bar!

What an amazing dining experience! From the moment we walked in the staff made us feel welcome as we were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. Chef Fabio and team were engaging and gave us cooking tips we could use at home. Our server Josh was extremely attentive and gave wonderful food suggestions. The sommelier was wonderful and provided us with a delicious flight of vermouth. We can’t wait to make our next reservation. Congratulations on your top 5 best new restaurant ranking across Canada!!

Been here on several occasions and everything was outstanding! The food this time was much saltier than previous visits so was a bit disappointed, as I had some first time diners with me.
Also some inappropriate action was happening at the front bar which eventually was dealt with my management.
Just a one off night but I’d still recommend and come back to dine. New items on the Fall menu good additions.
Chefs bar dining is definitely a treat!

My birthday- we wrote it in the reservation but it was never mentioned once. We were initially sat by the door it was freezing and so we had to move. Our pasta came cold and they did bring another one but we didn’t get to enjoy all the food together as we had hoped. I wanted hot chilies with my pizza and no one was around to ask and by the time we got them the pizza was no longer hot. The food was delicious and there were tons of servers who seemed to be around when you didn’t need them and nowhere to be found when you did. Overall an average dining experience. Would have been nice for them to recognize the birthday and also compensate for the pasta.

I dined at Giulietta on Monday October 15th with my daughter for a celebration of her birthday. It was her that chose the restaurant, neither of us having eaten there before. Upon entering, I found the staff very welcoming and they led me to our table right away. I was amazed at how busy the restaurant was for a Monday evening. It was at capacity! And I could soon see why. The food was outstanding. We shared plates and got to enjoy the Steak Tartare (!), Kale salad, Chestnut stuffed Agnolotti (!!), Pasta with calamari, shrimps and clams in a saffron/tomato sauce (!!), Brussels Sprouts with guanciale (!) with a lovely bottle of Barbera and an Arneis by the glass. I would make the reservation and run, not walk, to have a great meal. And, they offer corkage for those so inclined.
