Latest word on Giulia?

We are heading there on Saturday night . The reviews on here have been all over the place with some people thinking its one of the best new places in Boston to others thinking the portions were small for the price, that the place has an "odd" vibe and the bartending leaves something to be desired. Most of the reviews are from not to soon after they opened so was hoping for some current updates-have they worked out the kinks? Must try dishes? etc

I made this reservation back in early March and its one of those rare nights out we get as a couple. We are going with good friends and leaving the kids behind. So before we even walk in the door we will be out over $100 for the sitter, plus since we don't have a ton public transportation options we are most likely looking at parking and/or cab fees too.

No big deal (the money part) but not if we know we are walking into the potential of having less than a stellar meal. If the newest reports/general consensus is that they are still working out the kinks and/or having service issues we are happy to table our reservation and try again in a few more months. My husband and I are more forgiving as we grew up in the rest. business but the other couple can be, errr, less forgiving. There are plenty of other places we have wanted to try (or go back to) if needed.

The media and online buzz for the most part has been positive for what that is worth…
