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.

We dined for Valentines, an extremely busy night of the year - the staff was friendly but you could tell they were hurried - the ambiance is really cool - with a bar in the middle of the resto. Short menu, with amazing options to choose from. You can tell their recipes are very well designed for maximum flavour experience. Our apps and salads were great. Fave dish was the pappardelle with braised oxtail. Gnocchi were homemade and well done. They tried their best to accommodate my dietary intolerance considering it was a very busy night and they did a decent job.

Disappointed that their menu changes so much.
I was there in January and the agnolotti was delicious but they did not have the burrata anymore. This time the agnolotti was replaced by gnocchi which was very subpar.

Amazing. We sat at the chef’s bar (not sure if that’s what they call it) and thoroughly enjoyed watching all the attention and care that goes into the preparation of every dish. The food was all exquisite and the service was honestly some of the best I’ve ever experienced.

Guiletta was a pleasant expierience!
We enjoyed the different selections on the menu.
The pulpo tasted so good. The ragou was delightful. The swordfish was rather small but perfect in taste. Tasteful cauliflower side. We really recommend the tarta della nonna as a desert!

Overall very happy with the menu options, food was delicious! The waitstaff went above and beyond. Items that need serious addressing - curtain around the doorway to keep the front seating area warmer, a larger area for walk ins to wait for a table. Not enough space by the bar as servers have to access the front dining area. The lineup of walk in patrons at the door makes for a fish bowl experience in the front dining room, better eat up and get out. Looks as though only VIPs and guests that complain enough get to dine in the back room. Drake like rap could be changed to something more unique that you might hear in a top ranked NYC eatery. Environment contributes to the dining experience and this is the only thing this restaurant has cared to disregard.

despite making a reservation one month in advance, and arriving on time, my party and i still waited more than twenty minutes for a table. staff was completely unfazed and unapologetic (so we made sure that we were the last ones to leave)

RE: value - $15 for a small bibb lettuce salad is not going to bring me back anytime soon

otherwise, food was good. cocktails were great. would come back, but after trying out other restaurants first.

Beautiful place and excellent service overall, but for the price point I expected more from the food. It was very tasty, just didn’t blow me away. Two exceptions were an outstanding fennel salad and the best Tiramisu I’ve ever eaten. Also our server, while well-intentioned, was just too much. His tendency to be as conspicuous as possible was pretty distracting, and eventually started to annoy us.

We have been to the restaurant twice. Our first experience was amazing!! Loved it so much and couldn’t wait to return. While the food is delicious and service is great, it was rather disappointing that there were extremely few gluten free options. One of the people in our group is celiac and our server didn’t seem to make any efforts to see about what could be done to expand her choices beyond hen or vegetables. For a first class restaurant in 2019, this struck us as quite unusual and we were disappointed. Would love to return but would be great if there could be some effort of accommodation and interest for those who may have some food limitations.
Thanks

Absolutely loved the food. Starters were excellent, main dish is amazing. Fairly pricy, but worth every cent if dining at a fine Italian restaurant. Glad to see Vincent and Matthew on the chef's rail. All of the staff showed that they cared for the customers and asked if everything is alright. Definitely would go back there again soon!

I managed to snag a seat for new years eve with my husband, just a few days before. They only had the nye set menu available that night. We really enjoyed all the dishes, but highlight of the night was the pasta and dessert. One thing I didn't like was the misled information on the set menu which was mentioned on their website. It was stated to have fire-roasted chestnut, but nothing came when the bill came. I had to ask the waiter, he only said it was available during the day at the bar. Other then that false information, we did enjoyed our evening.

Our meal service was too quick !!! We sat at 8:15 and by 9:30 the staff rushed to get us out and was bringing the machine to us to pay for the bill. You shouldn’t rush patrons out if they have reservations, otherwise would have given 5 stars

I've been to Giulietta a few times and it never fails to surpass my expectations. My last visit, I got a seat at the chef's bar so I was able to watch the staff in their element as I was enjoying my meal. The food, although spectacular (seriously they knocked it out of the park with this menu), was not even the best part of my visit. The staff is so friendly and they really add another level to the whole dining experience. Overall, amazing restaurant, amazing chefs, amazing service. This is definitely my go-to for a nice date night.
