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.

Love the food. Everything from the carpaccio starter to the special truffle caramella to the nonna’s tart was good. The sommelier was also good with his choice of wine to match my good. Had the langhe Nebbiolo that was perfect with the food choices. I sat at the bar counter alone and the people were friendly but not overly intrusive. It’s Italian some right. Yum!

Overall supremely disappointed, especially with my previous fantastic experience at Bestellen. I was expecting to be blown away with all of the hype but it just didn't live up. The octopus was honestly one of the worst dishes I've had in recent memory, everything else was literally just ok. Also wasn't feeling the space, I think they got the design all wrong here. Felt like I was eating in a subway station sitting on the absolute most uncomfortable chair money can buy.....

Octopus is a must try. Noise level is ok if you are sitting in the front part of the restaurant.

Amazing food from Chef Rob! Highly recommend the octopus to start and the king crab taglioni was one of the best pasta dishes I have ever eaten.

We sat at the bar right in front of the open kitchen, they were by far the best seats in the house. We were able to speak to the chefs and ask questions as they worked. The food was outstanding, but by the far watching those four chefs work was the biggest highlight.

Enjoyed food very much. Food was excellent.

By comparison, Selection of white wines by glass was poor and limited. Tasted two white options by glass - neither was excellent; these wines by glass were maybe just poor to average.

Giulietta came highly recommended for the food--and they did not disappoint! The octopus appetizer, the oxtail ragu pasta, and the brussels sprouts side dishes were the highlights. The seafood main, cauliflower side and Nutella-flavoured "soft serve" gelato we shared for dessert were very good, but just not as great as the other dishes we had. Decor was nice, nothing special. The Cynar-based cocktail we had was tasty, and the wine accompanying the seafood was good (perhaps a bit too dry for our tastes, though!). However, the service was very good--super professional, humourous, impeccable--and perhaps the best accompaniment to the meal!!

Another amazing meal. There are so many things that Giulietta does superbly. The experience from front of house to back of house is seamless though. The staff are incredibly hospitable, and really want to let you enjoy the meal. They know the food so well, and the wine and drinks inside out. My companion has Celiac, and they made her feel 100% confident. We sat at the counter and enjoyed the interaction with the chefs and cooks. Most importantly, they were having fun. You can tell how well a restaurant is run by the laughter in the kitchen. Thanks G, another great dining experience.

The entire experience was outstanding. It was a little louder than I anticipated, which made conversation a little more challenging but that is my only gripe. The food was delicious, the service was seamless and we had a wonderful anniversary dinner. We will most definitely return soon. Worth every penny!

Printing on menu might be a bit bigger for older folks like us, and with the lighting levels which are wonderful but just harder to read.

The sub par service completely overshadowed the tasty food. Although we had a reservation, we waited 20 minutes before being seated. It took over an hour to receive the main course from the time we ordered the appetizers, even though we asked for all food to be brought out as soon as it was ready. Knowing we were celebrating a birthday, I expected a tiny dessert to offset the service issues, but it was not offered.
