Giulia has an excellent menu (which changes frequently) with an emphasis on Italian cuisine, truly outstanding service with great ambience and an extensive wine list. The homemade pasta is to die for. If only parking wasn’t quite so challenging.

The restaurant was busy on a weekday night. Reservations are highly recommended. The entire menu is "chef's choice", served in courses. Cold and hot antipasti, pasta, main corse and dessert--6 courses in all. The waitstaff is attentive and the chefs take into account dietary restrictions...More
