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)

We really like the ambiance and the menu. Food was excellent and fairly priced. Like everywhere in Canada, drinks are ridiculously... More

On a recent visit to Toronto area, we ate at this cute restaurant. The ambiance of the restaurant is quite charming. The patio is quite large and comfortable to sit on. They have a wide selection of Gluten Free choices. In all we ate 3 pasta dishes and each was very good. My Gnocchi was like my grandmother's, freshly made... More
