Chef Rob Rossi & David Minicucci, have collaborated to bring a genuine neighbourhood restaurant to Dufferin Grove.

Designed by acclaimed architect Guido Costantino, a beguiling interior sets the stage for a convivial 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 and red oxidized steel accents interplay with blonde wood and terrazzo, creating a rich, textured environment.

    I was really excited to eat here. I’m Italian and really appreciate great pasta. I heard the pasta here was really good so I was very excited to try some. I have a dairy allergy so I asked if the cheese could be removed from the sauce as I really wanted to have pasta. The waitress was really rude to me and just said no no that I couldn’t eat at any of the pasta here. It’s 2022, and to not be able to accommodate allergies is really archaic. I went to Italy this summer and was able to eat pasta at every place that I went to. But the attitude I got when I brought up an allergy was really disrespectful and I did not expect that from a place I had heard such great things about.

    Food was a bit pricey but worth it! Me and my husband had the steak tartare, the octopus, the lobster risotto, and the tomato stew with all the mixed seafoods. Delicious, no complaints whatsoever. Everything was super tasty. I loved the octopus and the risotto the most! YUM.

    The restaurant has an energetic feel, more like NYC than Toronto. The service is always great, the food is nice, nothing outstanding, but the unfortunate thing is that you always feel rushed through your visit. From the moment you make the reservation you are told about 2h max stay. then when you sit down you are again reminded. And if you end up having a great conversation and enjoying your time which makes you a slower consumer, you are told you have to hurry while you are enjoying your dessert. I feel you should not be rushed not just because you are spending $450 for two people, but because it spoils all the other efforts

    Wow, the service was impeccable, Nadia was so lovely in recommending delicious dishes, checking in for feedback/our satisfaction, and constantly refilling our water. Our table was wiped down between each meal segment, and the dishes and cutlery were changed too. Rarely do you receive this type of service. We did not feel rushed during our meal and thoroughly enjoyed it. Although there is a $3 water service charge per person it was well worth it. Between the 4 of us we ordered 12 items on the menu, shared everything, and it was delicious (braised tripe, beef tartare, octopus, beet salad, cacio e pepe, butternut squash filled tortellini, bolognese, brodetto di pesce, wild mushroom side, La Valentia pizza, and lastly the tarte and maple gelato dessert)! Everything was tasty, flavourful, and good texture. There were only two items to note, which completely depends on your preference. - The cacio e pepe is very creamy and cheesy which some of us found too much but personally I enjoy cheesy/creamy. It’s a good dish to share because of the richness. - The Valentia pizza had a nice kick to it and I enjoyed the flavours but I found the bottom of the pizza to be too charred which to me made it taste too smoky and burnt, the server mentioned next time we could request for a new one to be made if it’s not to our liking. I would still give it another try but make the request for it to be less charred since I liked the toppings, which completely depends if you like it that way or not. It has a soft bottom so the best way to enjoy it is to fold it! Overall, my guests and I enjoyed the amazing service, ambiance, and food. We left happy and full. We all agreed we would add Giulietta to our top Italian restaurants to go to. Note: Parking isn’t the easiest to find. We went on a Monday and there is paid parking directly in front of the restaurant but only available 6:30 onwards, we saw a car with a ticket on its dashboard being towed away at 6pm.

    Service was really bad. Took forever to be seaters and we weren’t offered a drink while we waited. Hostess was nice but the process was not good. The server at the table wasn’t warm, had a Im better than you attitude. We were charged for tap water which is absurd. Overall, was disappointed and wouldn’t go back.

    Giulietta has been out favourite restaurant since its inception, however last night we found the meal overly salty. We ordered several dishes, all beautifully presented, prepared to perfection, however salt content was on the high side, leaving a less than pleasant aftertaste despite having lovely deserts following our mains. Fortunately, there's an easy fix to this issue. Use less salt 😏

    The food was incredible and the service excellent. The drinks are a little pricey for the size but I can live with it. There were a couple of women who I guess were influencers sitting next to us at the bar just posing for photos the entire time, so that was a little annoying, but not the restaurant’s fault. Overall, we loved it and will definitely be back. The steak tartar was my favourite thing. The Branzino was also delicious.

    Wonderful staff!! My reservation notes requested a table if at all possible, as bar seating was my only choice when I booked. We were offered early seating and a dining room table, which I so appreciated. Nadia tended to us and she was very knowledgeable and engaging. Our water was always topped for us by any staff passing by, all cutlery was replaced and table was de-crumbed after every course. Pizza- AMAZING. Light, crispy, so delish. The tortellini was also great. Side mushrooms were a 10 if you love mushrooms. Not too oily or buttery. Cocktails are NOT sweet at all and run more on the structured and tart side. Bread was soft and fresh, well worth the bread service charge. The coffee chocolate cake is a perfect share and is slightly salty- total treat! Osteria Giulia has my heart if I had to compare, but Giulietta’s energy is more relaxed and less curated, so the experience IS different. In all, lovely visit! The menu was well-suited to my vegetarian friend. Would recommend!

    Everything was amazing—service, ambiance, drinks, and the overall food! The appetizer with prosciutto, cheese, and olives were perfect, the pizza (La Valentia) is highly recommended! Perfect taste! My drink which was called Perle di Melone was superb for a person who likes the mixture of a sweet and liquorish taste. The only thing that kind of turned our table around was the Bolegnese that has been served to us last night… there was just too much salt. We were kinda looking for that “tomato” strong taste—but unfortunately, it did not taste like that. It was just ground beef and saltiness—if this is the Restaurant’s “signature” move, I hope it gets modified a bit, because I cant seem to remember Bolognese being this salty. But, otherwise, would still go back in Giulietta regardless and recommend it to friends and family!
