Heard raves about Giulia's -- finally made it there and we were delighted! Cozy elegant ambience, full to capacity but not noisy, and service that was over the top outstanding. Then there was the food! Lovely fresh appetizers with local veggies with just enough unique spicing to make them extraordinary. Bucatini all'amatriciana with the house-cured pancetta was my dish and my companion chose the papardelle with wild boar. The meats in the dishes were excellent and served in just the right amounts to balance the house-made pasta. Lovely sauces. A side of Umbrian lentils (because we couldn't resist and they are a specialty of the chef) so tasty that they gave me a whole new look on lentils. My companion had a couple of special requests and the Chef Pagliarini went out of his way to prepare what she needed and even visited the table to make sure everything was satisfactory. (It was.) Panna cotta topped with a fresh pineapple, vanilla and basil sauce was a refreshing ending to our meal. All fresh ingredients here clearly prepared with love and genuine striving for perfection made this one of the most outstanding restaurant meals we ever experienced. Don't travel too much but when we do we try to get to the renowned restaurants in the area. I would say that Giulia rivaled the Alice Waters landmark Chez Panisse in Berkeley CA. I can't wait to go back!
