“Nice but over priced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

I liked the atmosfeer and decor, feels very 'clean', but unfortunately that's about it. The food was ok, but very small portions with a nice pricetag. Im glad I've eaten there, I might even recommend it just to get a second opinion, but with the choices of restuarants in Cape Town Giulia probably wount see me again

“We'll be back for dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

We went to Giulia for lunch on Valentin's day after a friend suggested the place. He was right the food was very good, with fresh ingredients pasta cocked al dente. The lunch menu is limited and looking forward to try the more sophisticated dinner menu. The waiter needs some training.

“No go-backs”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

We heard a lot of good about this new place so we went to see for ourselves. We are critical, go out 5x per week and went there for lunch on Valentines Day The waiter put the ordered water on the table with 2 glasses but made no effort to pour Needless to say that no lemon or ice was offered. The pasta and Ciabatta was very good but the portion very small. When we read on the menue that they charge R 30 for a breadbasket and some oliveoil and salt we decided it is not worth going back. None of the owners was present and restaurant empty. Espresso ordered was ok Service unattemptiv

“Authentic Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

This is a fairly new restaurant and we were impressed. The owner came out to talk to us and to give us a special appetizer. The food was great and the service was good. We split an appetizer, soup, salad and entree. The wine list was also good.

“Very disappointing breakfast”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

Giulia replaced the wonderful Miss K restaurant which was one of my favorite breakfast spots. I was pleased to hear that they had kept the miss k breakfast menu, but was extremely disappointed by my experience when I tried it. The service was slow, they didn't have a lot of ingredients for the items ordered. Overall it was a wry disappointing experience and not at all what it had been like in its former incarnation.
