Chef Rob Rossi & David Minicucci, of Toronto favourite L'Unità, have collaborated to bring a genuine neighbourhood restaurant to Dufferin Grove.

Stay tuned for their new restaurant, Osteria Giulia opening in May 2020 at 134 Avenue Road.

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.

9:30 p.m. reservation ... waited by the door until 10:15 p.m. It got so bad we considered grabbing our coats and leaving for another place. People come to a late dinner hungry and expecting to eat. 5-10 minute wait is acceptable but should be an exception. To have to wait 45 minutes for a "reserved" table is unforgivable in any circumstance. By the time we were ordering (~10:30pm) our appetite had passed and we didn't want to eat too much given how late it was. Happy we tried it, but can never in good conscience return to a place that messes up one of the most basic aspects of running a restaurant. Just hope the mussels aren't waiting outside the fridge for as long as we waited in the doorway.

The food was outstanding- my issue was that our reservation was for 9:30pm and we didn’t get a table until 10:15. I was told it was because a group was taking a long time, but I would have expected maybe a free drink?. I would come back again but you should up your game if you want to be one of the best restaurants in the city.

Great food and definitely worth the price
Sommelier needs some customer service skills that’s my only contention. Overall a great dinner experience with 3 kids age range 8-14 yo

Everything about my experience at Giulietta was off the charts- food quality and portions were both amazing, I’m still thinking about the carpaccio and ravioli dishes! The team there are awesome: friendly and so attentive. I like music a lot and the stuff they were playing just added to the whole experience!! I will definitely go back! I’d love to sit at their bar by the open kitchen next time - it looked awesome!

Our table wasn't ready and we were asked to wait at the Bar for around 25-30 min before we got to our table. The service was distracted and not up to par for a restaurant at this price point. The redeeeming factor was the great food, which was definitely really good. Recommend the Ravioli and Branzino

This is the second time I’ve visited. Perhaps they are getting too popular and some of their high standards are being challenged. We felt rushed to finish as there’s no buffer in their reservations. The food IS good, servers are polite and professional. Maybe not best new restaurant level anymore but still very good.

We had a great time sitting at the Chef’s bar at Giulietta—the chef’s were quite willing to chat and we got to taste some of the ingredients going into the various dishes as well as find out about some of the ingredients. This seating works best for 2 or at the most 3 people if you want to chat. The pasta dishes were very tasty, the salads generous and the tiramisu is to die for.

Excellent food, highly recommend the pizza and Swiss chard and cauliflower salad in particular. The pizza, I think, is the best in Toronto (and this is a topic I've put a lot of thought into). Friendly and attentive service. Very nice decor: sleak and tasteful.

A group of friends and I have been using the Canada's 100 Best list as a guide for which restaurants to eat at here in Toronto for the past couple years, and I can honestly say this is one of the best places we've been to. Everything about the experience was fantastic from start to finish. Would highly recommend and plan on going back very soon!

My friend and I sat at the chef’s table - it was fun watching the kitchen prepare the dishes. All the food was amazing - we shared two appetizers, a pasta and pizza plus desert which was more than enough. The server was very attentive - overall a great experience and I would highly recommend!

Food was good. Only 2 stellar courses - octopus starter and oxtail ragu pasta. Table service was also good. Kitchen had timing down for each course, so that each course appeared at appropriate time.

The food was amazing. Had the octopus, burrata, salad, Giulietta pizza and honey and pine nut torte. Everything was delish. The only thing is we were ushered out after our dessert - our coats were given to us at our table (without our asking) and it was clear we were being encouraged to go. It felt like we were being pushed out of the restaurant. I think that shows poor class- if they need the table by a certain time they should let us know in advance. It was my friends birthday and we got there at 6 and ushered out by 8.

Overall, it is a lovely place to dine. Our group collectively found the salads / apps to be on the oilier and salty side. Beyond that, the food was delish.

We sat on the counter and it was a great option. My husband and I were able to see how the pass was going, how they work as a team and laughter was part of their routine. Also, seeing them prepare other dishes was mouthwatering.

We ordered the octopus which I understand why it is so popular, it was tender and had good and different flavors. I had the L' APULIANA pizza and as the sous chef described; great balance of flavors and the was crispy but chewy at the same time. My husband had the AGNOLOTTI del PLIN. Really rich and yummy! Maybe a tad too much of butter for our personal taste but the sage made it all nice.

I let the staff know that it was his birthday and they wished him well, I was expecting a little something to celebrate but we had a nice treat on our way out (panetonne) for the holidays. I would definitely go back to try other dishes.
