I visited this restaurant with friends and I won't be visiting again. The service was poor. We had several rounds of drinks, on one occasion they brought the wrong drinks and on another we had to ask several times for the drinks. The food was...More

This restaurant deserves a minus rating. Not only for its quality, but service alike meaning the arrogant waiter to match (Jack Nicholson look alike). I do not understand the positive reviews. To be honest, I had better Italian microwavable meals than the food served at...More

We have visited the Resturant at least 10 times. The service has been great and we really enjoy the food. It's always busy would definitely recommend a nice local Italian meal.

Rather quiet for a Saturday lunchtime . Doesn't really help their opening time is 2:00pm . Decor clean and simple and due to lack of patrons, possibly, good service. Food was really great. Penne carbonara. Enjoyed it tremendously

Available Mon - Thurs, three courses about £14. Excellent home made Italian food from this family restaurant. Recommend mushroom and chicken pate starters. Pollo Milanese main delicious and wholesome. All portions generous, good service. Who could ask for more?

I fail to understand the popularity of this place. I have had far better Italian food elsewhere, and better service too. I cannot understand the rave reviews. The mussels were tough and chewy and gave me the trots afterwards. The pizza was dry and unpalatable...More

Very interested in your review but would like to know which restraurant you realy visited as you stated that your minestrone soup was very poor and Giulianos does not offer minestrone.We have visited this Restraunt once a week since it opened and never had a bad meal .Perhapes it's time you gave it a second chance and if you have a problem ask for Giulio who is most helpful .good luck on your next visit
