Osteria Giulia sprung to life in our imaginations as a tribute to Italian traditions of the past.

We wanted to create one simple, beautiful thing. Somewhere outside of your busy life, outside of your surroundings, outside of time. An environment, an experience, an entire evening.

Osteria Giulia is intimate, warm and familiar. We’ve reveled in her every detail. We’ve established a rarified menu focusing on Northern Italian cuisine and delicate coastal, Mediterranean flavour.

Giulia is a new imagining of what an Italian restaurant can be. It always was the place of our dreams, the reason for our collaboration, and the culmination of—and conduit for—our collective passion.

We can’t wait to welcome you.

    The food is fabulous. From appetizers to pastas to dessert, every dish had a beautiful presentation, the ingredients were fresh, and the taste outstanding. The decor is luxurious in a minimalist, modern way. It can get loud as there are a lot of hard surfaces and the tables are close together. The service is warm, (but not familiar) and professional. I recommend Osteria Giulia for those who are seeking fine Italian dining, and a buzzy atmosphere. It does feel special. I would not recommend it for those who are seeking value since this is definitely on the expensive range of dining options, both for the food, but especially the wine. Although the portions were enough for us, some diners may view them as skimpy.

    It’s not as good as you guys think it is. Most dishes are under seasoned, and the menu isn’t all that exciting. The meal was $550 for three people. We had no cocktails and a $125 bottle of wine. Having just come back from Italy and London, and being in town from LA where I now live, these prices are outrageous for what you’re putting out. It’s not that the meal was bad, but at these prices I don’t expect mediocrity.

    The appetizer Tonno Crudo was great to start. I wish I had ordered the vitello tonnato to share. The drinks were delicious as well. The pasta dishes lorighittas al mare and spaghetti al nero di seppia was delicious. Finishing with the pistachio and mille feuille dessert was a delight. I would love to try other menu items next time. One thing is I prefer regular seating over the bar area.

    I think this place works best in large groups and is very much not a spot for a two people. Noise level is energetic and exciting but gets in the way of the delicate food. Food is presented beautifully but just felt it left much to be desired closest running up to big flavours but without quite making good on the potential. Good spot for large groups celebrating a splurge meal.

    Spent a lovely summer’s evening here for a late dinner. The staff and service were excellent, and the food was outstanding. Such a warm, welcoming, minimalist space. The stracchino cheese stuffed focaccia is simply served as a baked flatbread with extra virgin olive oil & sea salt. It’s light, flavourful and fun to share. Similar to a Turkish gözleme. We then shared the tonno crudo, which was yellowfin tuna, with watermelon, fennel, lemon, basil & sea salt. Really light and summery, but again bursting with flavour for something prepared so simply. For a pasta dish, we shared the spaghetti al nero di seppia, which was a lovely squid Ink spaghetti with a nice hint of chili spice and tomato sauce to go with some beautifully poached lobster. Just perfect! We then shared some super fresh grilled seafood, again simply prepared with lemon & olive oil to bring out the flavours. We could have been anywhere in southern Italy or the Mediterranean by that point of the evening, and our waiter recommended some great wine pairings to wash it down, including a nice full-bodied white wine from Campania that was a great choice. For dessert, we went with the Bombetta al Pistachio, and were not disappointed. But honestly, all of the dolce sounded and looked amazing. Thanks to Rob, David and all of your staff for a lovely, well spent evening. My only regret is that I can’t just walk in on a whim to sit at the bar up front and make it my new local - it’s reservations only. But we’ll be back. Grazie mille!

    The team behind L’Unita and Giulietta did it again! All dishes and drinks we tried were superbly executed! Pasta perfection! Service was unevenly paced: only cocktails came in the first hour and the rest of the food and drinks were served in the second hour but I am assuming it’s part of growing pains. Will definitely try it again soon.

    The best restaurant I have been to in a while! Everything about the experience was exceptional. From the food to the atmosphere to the drinks, I was blown away. The food was not only delicious, it was beautifully plated and you could taste the freshness. The drinks recommended and made by the bartender were citrusy and tasty and exactly what I wanted. It was nice sitting by the bar and chatting with the staff. Definitely would recommend this restaurant to anyone!

    I think the restaurant is overrated, all the hype leading to a big let down. There are other restaurants offering the same quality of food. The rack of lamb was salty, the pesto pasta ordinary and I have had better mille feuille elsewhere. But Chris the server was very very attentive and professional and pleasant.

    Nice setting and solid food, but the price it commands are crazy. We spend about $150 per person without drinks, for ITALIAN food! It's just a small amount of seafood, some egg yolks and FLOUR! Really really overprices, even for Yorkville standards.

    We really enjoyed our dinner. The restaurant was full but the quality of the food and the service was excellent. We are looking forward to dining there again. The only difficulty is the reservation system. It has to be made at midnight two weeks prior to going and even that doesn’t guarantee that we get the day and time we want. We made a reservation by doing exactly that and we ended up going a week earlier on a better time for us by accidentally checking open table the day before.

    Food, all tasted good but a little expensive side. Carrot was excellent. Service at the table by a lady staff was excellent. Just one thing. The manager who greeted us at the entrance was not very pleasant when we entered ( maybe we were not as dressed well enough? ) and told him we have trained service dog. A little disappointed.
