never disappoints. Great food and excellent service.
Amazing in every way. Pasta was incredible
We love Giulia. Great ingredients prepared with real skill and care, and the staff are attentive without being pushy or intrusive.
Really different menu, a lot of pasta but with a lot of unusual Ingredients. Papperdelle with wild boar was excellent.
Love this place! Always amazing but I especially loved the dessert snd wild boar is always excellent!
Phenomenal food and service. Worth many returns.
Staff was friendly and helpful. Amazing, creative and tasty dishes. Just perfect for a special birthday celebration. The bartender was very helpful in selecting the right wine to have with our meal. Would definitely do it again the next time we are in Cambridge.
We sat outside and had an amazing five course meal (we shared most courses as we wouldn’t have been able to make it through otherwise). The wait staff were incredibly attentive and personal. The food was amazing from the bread they gave you to start through the appetizers, starters, beautiful house made pasta, amazing meat dish, and the most amazing cheesecake I’ve ever had. It was a splurge celebration meal for us for two that came to $200. We shared most courses but had our own pasta and dessert dishes. We had a glass of Prosecco and a cocktail each. Would very much recommend!
We had a very nice diner at Giulia's. The bread they brought was a nice warm sourdough slices. We also ordered some focaccia and although it was very tasty, it was the same bread they had just brought us, so not quite the traditional focaccia we had in mind. The pasta was delicious and we were able to substitute the bigoli for the papardelle, which were served with a wild boar sauce, delicious although slightly salty to my taste. Apparently the lamb sausages were very tasty too. The hazelnut ice cream was to die for.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant to any Italian food lover.
Extremely good, delicious, comforting, interesting food and drinks. Great service and value. Every piece of the meal was extremely well thought-out. One of the best meals that I've had in a long time.
Amazing bread, amazing pasta, truly incredible food.
The boar pasta was AMAZING, but you can’t go wrong with anything you order here.
Excellent restaurant. The food is amazing and the cocktails are also very good
All of the food and cocktails were exceptional. Such a thoughtfully curated menu. Great Italian, small-plate fare for sharing! Will definitely return.
Delightful meal, as always 😋. SO GLAD to be back!!
The best Italian food in Cambridge (and Boston)
Creative and different dishes, homemade pastas are interesting grains and shapes and sizes with creative mix of vegetarian, meat and fish options available. Cocktails were fantastic. We sat outside on a cool evening and it was perfect fine dining despite being on Mass Ave. Service was perfect too.
The food was excellent, in particular, the pastas. The bucatini all'amatriciana was outstanding--second to none.
The appetizer special--grilled oysters--was excellent. The secondi--scallops--- was also noteworthy.
As always, they are professional and serve great quality foods.
They always makes me and my guest happier 😉
Always interesting food. One of my favorite Italian restaurants in Boston.
The food is beyond ...
The compilation, the way the entities on plate are paired, the quality, the presentation...fabulous!
One of our favorite restaurants around Boston.
Spectacular food, wonderful service. Felt so wonderful to have a great restaurant meal.
We had a great meal. Semolina cakes to start, prosciutto with pears and Parmesan, the boar pasta and the ramp pesto pasta, and pistachio gelato for dessert.
Our waiter was attentive and helped us to pick out a lighter pasta to complement the heavier boar dish.
All the dishes were flavorful and delicious.
We will return!
Everything was amazing!
Exquisite food and service as usual! Loved it and glad to have gone back after a tough year!
Always love Guilia! Neighborhood treat! Delicious Food. Thank you!
Giulia's is an upscale Italian menu with a very diverse, interesting menu. The food was all excellent
The outdoor seating is not the best, but still better than not dining out!
Its one of our favorite restaurants in Boston. Very reliable and right now booking is easy
The food is excellent, the ambiance pleasant. Plexiglass sheets between tables. Outside dining possible. Highly recommended.
The food and the service were both great. Lovely night spent.
amazing good with great service. highly recommended.
Absolutely delicious! Great service, lovely atmosphere, & the food and drinks lived up to the hype. Very hard to get a reservation, but it’s well worth it! Will return.
The food never disappoints. I had a heavenly pasta dish—soft pasta pillows stuffed with potato and fish all in a light curry sauce. One of the best pasta dishes I’ve ever had
Giulia is my favorite restaurant. The menu is always interesting, the selection and flavors wonderful from sfizzi to dolce. Small and intimate, I give it my highest recommendation.
Outstanding food and service. Prices seemed high but I’m not a city girl so probably just my own naïveté about the reality of city life.
Dining during covid can be nerve wracking but seating was very limited and outdoor dining was available. Food was great, we had the following:
Semolina Cakes - Ok, not worth the price, but good
Nostrale - Amazing
Bucatini All’amatriciana - Can’t go wrong with this
Pappardelle with Wild Boar - The perfect bite when you have a bit of every component
Lamb Sausage with Broccoli Rabe - Delicious
Mascarpone Cheesecake with Citrus Caramel - We were torn about this, we agreed to say this was ok
