Reservations for our Main Bar can be made by calling us directly.
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.
Giulietta was fine, food was fine, service was fine (a bit too fast as is typically the case in these places) etc. It was expensive for what it is. The light was really poor for reading the menu, it just didn’t feel like it was worth the effort of getting there.
The food was good and service pleasant. They have an interesting wine list and good cocktails. Even though it was busy it wasn’t so loud that you couldn’t hear conversation at your table( as is the case in many other restaurants).
Overall I thought the meal was a bit on the expensive side for what we ordered. My main quibble was that even though we reserved about a month ahead we were told that a large group was coming and we would need to vacate by a specific time. I think we would have been finished by then in any event but I found it irritating.
As well apparently you have to order everything at once . I had wanted to order a few starters before placing order for whole meal but apparently that is not allowed.
Awesome food and staff was very personable and knowledgeable. Their recommendations were spot on!
The food and atmosphere was amazing, will definitely go back.
Unfortunately, while the food is great, the service was not.
Everything about my experience was exceptional and a added bonus is it wasn’t too loud - the soundproofing worked - thank goodness!!
Pizza, octopus and desserts good. The pastas were poor. The seafood one came with a watery tomato sauce and the pepper seemed to be missing from the pasta dish that was to feature pepper. That dish also came out room temp and server did not seem that concerned when we mentioned it. Noodle was also more akin to spaetzle than pasta. Although pork chop was tender it was rather ordinary and is proof that enough salt and oil on anything helps. The plating of the capon was weird and unsightly and the meat was dry and chewy. Ambience, decor and vibe all very good.
Overall we were very underwhelmed and feel that this place is not worthy of its positive reviews or placement on Canada's top 10 retaurant list (Enroute magazine)
Delicious authentic italian, impecable service with good ambiance.
We liked the nice clean interior...not too dark or cluttered. The service was very professional, attentive and friendly. All the food was good. Nice sized portions and good flavours.
I wanted to like this restaurant - it is clear from the reviews that most people do - but no one in our group
could honestly say we would ever go back. The food was just ok - agnolotti was great as were the veggie sides , the capon was dry, the special pasta of the day boring and the pizza while very tasty was undercooked.
The starters were accceptable but not memorable. Wine list had a lot of little known wines from areas we knew well in Italy making the upcharge on them suspect. Service was ok - neither good nor bad - although with a pretentious air to it like we were lucky to be there. In our opinion it was simply too uneven across the board to deserve the accolades it is receiving, there are way better restaurants in Toronto.
Amazing food as always
A fabulous restaurant. No wonder it is difficult to get a booking.
Had such great experience - we sat at the Chefs bar and shared 4 plates - all fantastic! Highly recommend - service was outstanding on all levels.
Thanks again to the entire ‘team’ to a wonderfully memorable dining experience. It was so sweet that both Matthew and Kim remembered us from our last visit. See you all soon. Joe and Carolyn
Our server Danielle was fantastic, Kim the sommelier that evening picked out 2 great wines for us! Was blown away at how perfect the meal was and we even skipped dessert!
A great spot! Italian food with a twist! The kitchen bar seats especially entertaining!
Thank you for making our anniversary and engagement so special. Best pizza in the city of not the world.
The food, wine and ambiance were lovely. But the two female servers we had were absolutely delightful--friendly, professional and welcoming. They really made our night.
Striking decor with thoughtful details, friendly service and delicious food. I had booked it for the wrong day by mistake, but when we walked in, they accommodated us with no fuss. Cannot wait to go back.
Great Italian food, impeccable service. We loved the attention from the staff.
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
We visited for the first time on Friday. All of the dishes we ate were amazing. Service was great. Everyone was friendly. We will definitely be back.
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.
Unbelievable food, service, and ambiance. Had the steak Florentine and I can’t remember the last time I’ve had steak that delicious. Can’t wait to go back again. Sitting at the chef’s counter is also recommended
The food was great but we waited a long time past our reservation for our table and were not offered any accommodations for it.
Wonderful meal. Everything was cooked to perfection. Herb combinations were mouth watering. Service was impeccable. I’m already craving the food there and can’t wait to go back. Love the ambience and quality details
Quality food ,great pasta and octopus dishes good portions ,could use more meat dishes friendly service
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!
Was expecting much more from this place, but nothing special, doubt will be back again. Quite boring spot with just OK Italian food.
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!
Delicious food but VERY slow service! The eaiter didn’t even pay attention to our table for 40 minutes after arriving
was a good experience. food was good and served promptly. service was great
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!
Beautifully designed restaurant. Food mediocre, not the best pasta in the city. Poor customer service, felt rushed out of our table, our reservation had been booked for other a month. Wouldn’t run back.
Date night, in Toronto from Edmonton. Had the most enjoyable dinner! The food was delicious, true Italian!!! Amazing wine list. Top notch service. Our server Chanel was amazing, she made our experience so enjoyable!! Will definitely come again! Highly recommend!!!
Food was yum but really salty and I loooove salt
We had an amazing experience At Giulietta. We loved sitting at the Chef counter. The food was delicious and everyone went the extra mile to make it a really nice evening for us. We will definitely be back and have already recomended to our friends.
The food was superb, the service attentive and the sommelier was very helpful. Grouper on lentils, octopus appetizer and the pork were standouts. Interior was cool and comfortable. The restaurant was really top notch and we would certainly return.
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!!
