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.

    10000% Recommend! As sons as you walked into the restaurant you were greeted and seated. Service was impeccable. We had an amazing waiter who was knowledgeable about the food and recommended pairings. The food itself was 10/10. If you can get a reservation, please do. It took 2 months to get a reservation and it was well worth the wait.

    This is the first time I visit 1 star Michelin restaurant in Canada, I have been visited 1 star and 3 star in other countries. But I feel Osteria Giulia should have 3 star award. Food is amazing, staff is super friendly and professional.

    Great place, although a little bit on the pricey side. Not sure if it deserves the michelin star given that the presentation of the food wasn't super creative but definitely very delicious. Black cod and mushroom truffle risotto were easily the highlights of the dishes we tried.

    My expectation was indeed high since I have been to Guilia’s sister restaurant, Giulietta just a month or two ago. Other than having better than location, I must say that Giulia sits a notch lower than Giulietta. The food was bit more sophisticated than its sister restaurant which myself and family all agreed on. For me the only downside was the initial phone reminder for our reservation. The lady who made a call a day before the reservation rather sounded unpleasant and very cold. And as soon as I stepped into the restaurant, I knew who had called me. The hostess who greeted my party was not your typical greeter. She came across rather cold and unwelcoming. What stood out the most at Giulietta was their exceptional service. Perhaps I am not making any point by comparing the two restaurants but I know this is the only lacking element from Giuliano. The lady who took care of our table was great, exactly what would be expected at busy casual, semi-fine dining…… I wish my comment would make a little change! Overall I am willing to make one more visit to rectify my experience.

    I rarely give reviews but reading some of the others wanted to echo some points already raised 1) the noise level was too high, made it really hard to have a decent conversation 2) service was excellent except for the hostess who I found to be quite rude both when I arrived and when I had called earlier on in the day 3) rest of the service was excellent 4) most of the food was delicious with the exception being the ceviche (it was tasteless). I am a big fan of the sister restaurant so had high hopes especially after getting the Michelin rating. Overall my experience was fine but I had high expectations and those were not met .

    Simple but well done flavours. Even the olives are delicious. Not pictured is the flatbread - get in and eat it while hot. Make sure to share all the dishes and get an assortment of pastas. Great recommendations by our server James! Wasn’t as impressed the first visit, the second visit changed my mind.

    All of the dishes were delectable. It was by far one of the best experiences yet. The lighting/ambience was lovely. Tori, our waitress is very knowledgeable and recommended the dishes confidently and beautifully. Desserts need a little tweek, they were not as impressive as the rest of the dining menu. We will definitely return again.

    Not worth the hype :( The service was very good but the food was disappointing. The flatbread was bland with no real flavour. The endive salad and veal carpaccio were excellent and the best parts of the meal. The seafood pasta and paccheri pasta were extremely salty, were not enjoyable. The acoustics of the room are not great either, making it really loud and hard to hear. Maybe it was an off night but it certainly wasn't michelin quality.

    Pretty spot. Spectacular service. When it comes to the food however, nothing we had was anywhere close to spectacular. Everything was fine at best. Which is, of course, fine if you’re paying less than what this place charges. At this price and difficulty to find a table there should be at least one thing to recommend. Staff was lovely though!

    So terribly disappointed, especially after having such a wonderful experience at Giulietta. Celebrated my fathers birthday and didn't know what to order, but were told that every dish was meant to share, so we requested a variety of dishes that would be enough for the 5 of us. Instead of receiving enough for the table, we had to divide 2 sad scallops amongst the 5 of us and only have 1 bite out of each dish. After looking at other similar reviews, I don't know why this restaurant insists that these dishes are meant to share - they aren't. The absolute low point was the frutti di mare alla griglia where the aforementioned scallops were few, the octopus was burnt, and the (single, tiny) prawn was mushy. The freshness of the seafood was questionable at best. The food in general was just 'blah', with flaccid lamb, very plain pasta, and really nothing to talk positively about. However, we did all agree that the 3 desserts we shared (millefoglie alla fragola, bombetta al pistachio & torta al cioccolato) were all very good. We left hungry, slightly queasy, and extraordinarily disappointed.

    Osteria Giulia lived up to its Michelin star rating for my friend and I. The food was delicious and every dish was unlike anything we had ever had before at other Italian eateries. The attention to detail in service was impeccable. When a dish of ours was taking longer than what was to be expected for serving, David was at our table apologizing for the wait and offering us complimentary wine and an app to appease our appetite as we waited for our order. I would definitely recommend Osteria Giulia and can’t wait to come back to try the rest of the menu!
