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.

Executive chef: Rob Rossi

  • Award icon

    MICHELIN 1 Star

    2022

Osteria Giulia, chef Rob Rossi and restaurateur David Minicucci’s follow-up to Giulietta, builds on its sibling’s accolades. Rossi’s take on Ligurian-inspired dishes like hand-braided pasta with wild squid is equal parts fresh and refined and exudes the same understated elegance as the restaurant’s serene Yorkville dining room.

    The food was absolutely delicious and quick prep times. The issue we had was at 10ish they said we had to leave because the next reservation was arriving… there were multiple empty tables and no one was waiting.

    Had a dinner reservation for 5 for Mother's Day. The food was really good with standouts being the rack of lamb foccacia flatbread and tiramisu. Service was really attentive as well. Only slight drawback was that the table next to us was a little bit loud.

    This is an outstanding restaurant. The food is delicious, and the service is exemplary. Four of us dined on May 11, but, with one exception, I shall only describe my experience. The table started with Pane Naturale; it was classic Italian-style bread, well baked and served with a fine Ligurian olive oil. My first course was the Vitello Tonnato. The serving of thinly sliced veal was generously sized and came with a marvelous tuna-based sauce. Frankly, I have never enjoyed this dish more than Osteria Giulia's version. For my main course, I had their Spigola all Griglia -- a whole grilled sea bass. This fish was memorable. Over the past two decades, I have had four truly outstanding servings of fish: at L'Arpege in Paris; Le Bernadin in New York; and Michael Mina in Las Vegas. This sea bass was the fourth. The serving was highly creative, as the fish was completely covered with an amazing agliata verde sauce that was fabulous. Every mouthful was an explosion of flavor. Moreover, at just $65 CDN, the fish's price -- given the experience it provides -- is an extraordinary value. For dessert, I had the Millefoglie al Cocco. It was good, but, after that fish, almost nothing could have been other than a letdown. However, my sister had the Formaggio Testun di Barolo, which is a washed sheep's milk cheese, served with honey and quince. After a couple of forkfuls, she announced to the table that this was, without question, the best-tasting dessert she had ever had in her life. I have had the good fortune to have eaten in numerous fine restaurants around the world. While Osteria Giulia does not match the three-star pinnacle of such restaurants at Louis XV in Monte Carlo, it is definitely a restaurant not to be missed and one that I strongly recommend for an exceptionally delicious meal.

    We found the ambience a bit sterile, our waiter inattentive, the food a bit boring and bland. There was no rapport with our waiter, he forgot one of our appetizers (and made it seem as though WE had forgotten to give him the order). Our main dishes were not hot. My friend told the waiter who took both plates and returned them just the same. Dessert was pretty good. No need to return.

    All five of us were a little disappointed, given our expectations for a one Michelin star restaurant. Some of the pastas were a bit bland, recommend the endive salad, mushroom tortellini, and grilled seafood plate, but the lobster risotto was way over salted (they did remove this from our bill when we complained). Overall not a memorable experience for the price, some plates were delicious, others mediocre.

    Great evening at OG! Truly excellent, friendly service and we were very impressed by how quickly the kitchen was able to get out our dishes. We loved the anchovy toast, burrata, and pasta pesto dishes. Excellent, all of them. Lamb chops were good as well. The only dish we didn't like as much was the traditional flatbread with cheese. It reminded us of Yemenite pastries for some reason, sort of a bland carb filler. We loved the tiramisu. Great cocktails as well!

    Osteria Giulia has impeccable aesthetic: the restaurant is sparkling and uniform, the staff are polished and friendly, and the plating and dishes are gorgeous and worth documenting. Unfortunately, the food itself is where the experience falls flat. Each dish was disappointingly one note, and it felt like the kitchen could have used a brush up on the "salt fat acid heat" concept. The focaccia di recco could have used salt and tang; the endive salad was overwhelmingly sweet without much beneath that; the frutti di mare was good on the whole but featured some seafood overdone; the pork pasta greatly benefitted from a squeeze of lemon from the aforementioned seafood platter; and I couldn't taste any of that wonderful espresso bitterness cutting through the rich sweetness of the tiramisu. Every dish would have benefitted from something adding complexity and texture.

    Osteria Giulia delivered a delightful blend of exquisite Italian cuisine and a relaxed atmosphere – the perfect setting for both a lovely dinner date and a productive business discussion. We savored creamy burrata, house-made calamari and pasta with a decadent truffle mushroom risotto, and perfectly prepared pesto pasta. The attentive, unobtrusive service allowed our conversation to flow naturally, resulting in a sealed deal amidst delicious food and a warm ambiance. Osteria Giulia isn't just about a meal, it's about a memorable experience. Highly recommended for anyone seeking a blend of culinary excellence and the perfect space for important connections.

    The food and service were outstanding and the menu very creative. Definitely my favorite restaurant in Toronto. However, it is difficult to eat a five course meal, with a cocktail to start, within two hours. We found that the last past of our meal was a little rushed.

    Food is very good, service was very good. However, we will probably not return or recommend this restaurant to our family and friends, due to being very expensive. I don’t believe the value of the food was rated for their prices. Also, this was our first time visiting Osteria Giulia and it was difficult to locate. They do not advertise the restaurant clearly. The name is posted with very small print top left corner of the front window. Not sure the reason for this. Thank you

    I had very high expectations for this place, but unfortunately it fell short for a Michelin Starred restaurant. Our waiter Will was good, but service was slow. To get drinks took forever and the pace our food was brought out was too rushed. Each dish had its own unique flavor, but nothing I can say that was memorable aside from the beet salad and tiramisu. We ordered quite a bit, and we were aware of the time limit to dine, but after paying almost 2k on dinner and being kicked out in an extremely rude manor by the manager was uncalled for. Overrated and overpriced.
