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.

    Our table was situated right next to a party of about 12 very very loud people that were constantly yelling to the other side of the table. We were all quite upset since we had waited quite awhile to finally get this reservation and it truly made the meal and experience a lot less enjoyable. We go to many trendy restaurants that are quite loud but last night was really horrible. We asked to be moved but they claimed that the empty tables were reserved for people already. We were not happy about that.

    The only points they've lost would probably be - reminding us our table time. We ordered dessert and just began tasting it, we were asked to move to the front of the restaurant (bar/ waiting area) where people grab a drink and wait for the table... To continue having our dessert just because the next party has arrived.

    Food was very good until we found a hair baked in the fish we had. The waiter did not even apologies for it and took it away and give us a new one. That felt a bit odd and not respectful especailly consider this as a higher end restaurant.

    Incredible food. Wonderful wine list and great cocktails. Service by Lorenzo was best in class. His suggestions and wine pairings were spot on (loved the Fernet alternative he suggested!) An expensive night out but worth every penny for the quality of food and service. The restaurant is also beautiful. It can be a little noisy, but our seat in the corner made it easier to hear. All in all one of, if not the top, Italian restaurant experiences in the city. L'Unita used to be my favourite and I'm happy to see the ownership have maintained the same standard. If you like Italian food do yourself a favour and go!

    Very good food. Undoubtedly the best pasta I’ve had in Toronto. The lorighittas were a treat - very special to see them on a menu. And the Paccheri alla Genovese was so well-balanced and cooked to perfection.

The food was exceptional as usual. My favourite is the squid ink lobster pasta!!! Just delicious. Everyone enjoyed their menu selections and we all had a great time! Thank you Osteria Giulia staff!!!

    We celebrated our anniversary and were surprised to receive 2 complimentary glasses of champagne. Enjoyed dealing with our server who was very knowledgeable about the menu. wine selection and provided along with other staff quality and very attentive service. We thoroughly enjoyed the high quality and unique food offerings. We especially enjoyed the artistic dessert, Pitacchio Bombetta. We're already looking forward to returning to this gastronomic restaurant.

    Second time to Giulia, this time with a larger group (5 people). The good: the food remains delicious. Atmosphere is aesthetically pleasing and the vibe is right. The bad: the latest menu is seafood heavy, so options for non-seafood eaters were quite limited. The grilled calamari is no longer on the menu - tragic! Although nice, we did get the sense that our server was slightly annoyed by our questions and indecisiveness. The menu contains a lot of Italian words as well as many food items that aren't commonly found in Ontario (which is nice), but it means that more time and clarification is needed. We did five courses, plus cocktails, two bottles of wine and a digestif. While we needed some clarification, we certainly didn't take a long time to order and eat, but at the end of the meal we were rushed out to accommodate the next table. We still have full glasses of wine. Disappointing way to end the meal. When we walked out, four staff looked at us on the way out, one smiled, but not one said bye, thank you or even waved. Service certainly could have been better.

    It's a lovely restaurant with wonderful food but it's impossible to hear anyone, including the wait staff, because it's extremely loud. Also we were told 3 times that we only have a 2 hour seating. We felt rushed.
