This is a great Italian restaurant right here in Oakville

Great food, friendly warm staff working here, and a really good wine list make this a must for people living in Oakville or just visiting for the day. A really nice selection of apps, the pastas are particularly good, and the mains are great too. It's a charming place with a welcoming personality.

My partner and I went to Julia's on last Friday night for a late dinner. We were seated on their Lakeshore Patio on a beautiful evening, one of the few nice patios in the area. We shared the guacamole appetizer which I have had before but was just as delicious as I have come to expect. We both ordered Julia's... More

We were walking downtown Oakville and decided to go to Julia's and sit on their patio. We haven't been there in 9 years because of previous experiences at Julia's and their sister restaurant- Ritorno (the most expensive and small garlic bread ever!!!!). So we decided to give it another try. We were 3 adults and 2 kids. We were seated... More

I have been to Julia's before and it was decent (guacamole and one of the soups - tasty but not extraordinary). This time, I was pretty disappointed. I ordered the chorizo hash (brunch menu). It was not flavourful and the potatoes should have been cooked more. Service was lacking as well. We waited about an hour for our 3 dishes.

Poor service, food inconsistent and they have trouble serving large groups meals at same time. One person in our group waited 10 minutes for her food after all others at table had their meals.

this place is a wannabe. pseudo latino. no slasa or avaocado on a fish taco? no beans on huevos rancheros? 30 minutes for food to be served? too bad because it has a good location and the space is good but the food? not for me
