We have been here a few times and always enjoy the food. Also the quirky owner, music and independent nature of the place. Yes it could be a little bit cheaper but it is in the centre of Kingston. Yes the tables could have checked table cloth/ paper but they don't. It's a drop in cafe not a full on... More

I was really amazed at the quality of the service presented here, given all the positive reviews I had read before going in. The sauces are all made at the time on a plastic container, which then gets put inside a microwave. The same container is then reused over and over again. The meals are extremely overpriced. On asking details... More

We decided on an early lunch as we were looking after our 18 month grandson. Although a small restaurant . The atmoshere and staff were so friendly and accommodating . The Calamari to start was fresh and tasty, although a little too salty to give to our grandson but what he missed out on in not having Calamri was certainly... More

I am shocked to see a couple of recent negative reviews about Giuliano - reading them I actually wonder if they've got the wrong place?! The staff could not have been more warm and welcoming. The food was delicious and fresh, nothing like the commercial dishes you'd get in the big chains, but just like nonna would make! The servings... More

I ate here years ago and it was nice, so I decided to take my friend. As we walked in we asked a question with regard to the food, the owner's answer was somewhat curt. We decided to ignore that and sat down. Tables are close, almost on top of one another, very claustrophobic, the decor and whole atmosphere also... More

Whether you'd like to eat in or take out, Giuliano is a well-crafted, authentic Italian restaurateur. Other than Carluccio - a few dozens of meters away - there is no proper Italian food in sight. The place has a great potential if they only review their price list, just a little bit.

Whenever I crave italian food Giuliano is the first place I head to in Kingston. Black spaghetti with garlic and prawns are my favourite but the atmosphere is more for lunch meals.

This is an excellent little daytime treat. Lovely proprietor and attentive staff. Deli service but best to sit and eat. I always go for the crab ravioli. Utterly sublime. The Italian sausage pasta is a favourite of my daughter's. We tried the fresh cod risotto too today which was gorgeous. A tonic and a treat.
