Osteria Giulia

Toronto has two Little Italys, so it might seem strange that we’re telling you to head over to Yorkville for some life-changing focaccia. But once you bite into the stracchino-stuffed Ligurian flatbread made using a recipe that’s 900 years old, you’ll quickly understand why Osteria Giulia is one of the best restaurants in all of Toronto. Besides the focaccia, you’ll want to focus on the pasta and seafood dishes like squid ink spaghetti paired with Nova Scotia lobster and sweet corn and Parmigiano cappelletti. The interior is full of blonde wood and curved limestone walls, creating an atmosphere that’s minimalistic but still ideal for a romantic date. If you can’t get a table here, there’s always Osteria Giulia’s sister restaurant, Giulietta, which offers pizzas and pasta in a cozy trattoria on College Street.
