We were staying in Waterford one night, with a CIE tour, at the Granville Hotel. Emiliano's is only a five minute walk away. First and foremost it's a very traditional Italian restuarant when you walk in and are greeted by the owner and his staff. The vibe is very friendly and you notice many locals entering who the staff knew... More

It was SUPERB! First of all the staff were so friendly and helpful. They appeared like magic when you needed something but never... More

We arrived without reservations on a Wednesday night. It was busy but they opened up the upstairs and it quickly filled up with customers. The manager (maybe owner) personally waited on a couple who did not want to sit up stairs (but did) and did not want to wait for an hour for a downstairs table. I thought that was... More

I ate from the set menu (€24 3 courses) and my husband ate from the normal menu. We both had a starter main and dessert, starter was nice, the main was delicious (cannelloni) but the... More

The service here was friendly and the food fresh and well prepared. The mixed starter antipasti was lovely. Pizza and pasta were generous and authentic.
