So much fun. When you're hungry and need real relaxation, this little deli restaurant works magic on your soul. Fabulous fresh cuts of Italian cured hams. Great cheese and good wine. Warm caring staff. Good price. Happy ending!

I was in Dublin on a very short visit to friends celebrating my birthday. As we have done before we visited Taste of Emilia for some Bruschetta and prosecco, which we were enjoying in the busy, friendly environment. Unfortunately the whole experience was soured as my bag was stolen, from between my feet, by some-one I didn't even see! The... More

Wow - what can I say here. Our last night before flying home, we had just traveled via train and ferry from London to Dublin and were walking around looking for a place to have our farewell dinner. I am so glad I spotted this restaurant. The restaurant is small and the inside tables were full so we sat outside.... More

This restaurant is based around a very simple menu centred on quality food. The focus is great Italian meats and cheeses served on wooden platters - with a wide variety of options. Or you can have a various kinds of brochetta or sandwiches. All items are great for sharing with a glass or two of wine. I stayed a week... More

Emilia's place is very nice and warm. Friendly Italian guys cook the food by them selves. You don't find here the usual dishes like pizza or pasta, but the alternative Italian food is really delicious. Vegetarian people also will be impress, I think. Besides, you can make your food, if you couldn't choose on a main menu.

The thought of a lunch here on Saturdays keeps me afloat during the work week. The menu is focused on the typical food from Emilia Romagna, one of the most succulent in Italy. Not the usual pizza/pasta (fake sometimes) Italian, but a more genuine offer, with ingredients locally sourced - try the parma ham for instance and compare it with... More

I'm not sure exactly what Italian restaurants are like but this has got to be the closest to it you can get, especially as far as Dublin is concerned. The crudo, mozzarella, rocket board is outstanding.

A group of us from work went to this Italian cafe for our friends going away party last Wednesday. I'm a bit of a foodie and she had been telling me about this place for the last year so I went with pretty high expectations! All of them were met! We had amazing cheese and meat platters with Parma ham,... More

Called into Taste of Emilia for a post work light dinner and found an absolute gem of a place - all the more so because it's tucked away on a street where you'd probably not expect to find a highly rated coffee shop / deli / restaurant. The initial signs were hopeful given there were a few customers already there... More
