I have been to Julia a few times and the food never disappoints. The pasta is to die for and the flatbread appetizer is delicious. The service can range from good to... odd. One time when I was dining with my mother after a long, tiring day we were sitting at the table when I ended up zoning off into... More

Unfortunately, cannot agree with previous reviews (bubgub, acldl, toronto047). Some of the food was OK, the service was OK and the ambience so-so. I had the salmon, not something I had not had before. The quinoa with tomato and spinach was an original combination but that's all. The steak did not have great reviews. The pasta was good. Overall an... More

Every time I eat here I am impressed! When I was pregnant with my son, I had some spicy olives. They were delicious and I wanted to know where they bought them as I was craving all things spicy! That's when I learned that they were made at the restaurant and couldn't be purchased. Before we left, the waiter gave... More

This is a great restaurant with delicious food. A wonderful place for a special occasion. Located right on the Lakeshore in Oakville, it could be combined with a nice walk for a wonderful date night.

Four of us went to Julia's last evening to experience their "Taste of Oakville" menu. Amongst us we tried the beet salad and crab cakes for starters and the gnocchi and pork chop for the main. For dessert our choice was bread pudding. The food was very good and was well presented. Our server was attentive (not overly so thankfully).... More

I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed my first dinner at Julia Ristorante. I was out with a friend who has food alergies. The waiter was extremely helpful in recommending dishes and what we could substitute. Our starters were both very tasty. Both of us had the chicken and it was tender and delicious. We were so full that... More

On my visit to Oakville, my friend who is along time customer at Julia's took me there for dinner. We sat at a nice table by the window witch was very nicely decorated with Christmas ornaments. Our waiter came over to welcome us to Julia's, told us about their daily specials but we decided to have something off the menu... More

I had the Latin shrimp, which was good, not great. My family seemed to enjoy their food. Nice wines. The live music was a nice touch, & the decor was tasteful. Prices were average ($15-20/lunch)
