Wonderful

This is an authentic Italian bistro run by Italian immigrants. They featured wonderful special and regular entrees. Definitely worth visiting. Everything was delicious.

Fantastic evening. Service gets better and better. And as for the food. I love the specials. Always the chefs best work. The food seems to taste better each time I eat here. Thank you for a great night.

Our first visit to this highly recommended Italian restaurant was absolutely wonderful in all respects. Friendly, welcoming staff who could not do enough to make your stay enjoyable. A wide range of menues for all tastes were available and wines where reasonably priced. Dishes not on the menu were prepared without hesitation. We will definitely go back.

We ate here on June 19 having booked through menu pages. The place quickly got busy although it was early. We choose veal for two and although the service was quite relaxed the meat was cooked to perfection. Our waiter apologised for any delay but we were in no hurry! If there was a weak point it was the vegetables... More

Excellent choice of both food and drink. Service is good, and unusually, all the staff are Italian. Not a very big restaurant, so advisable to book. Reasonably priced, and very good quality.

I visit recently Emilianos with my partner after a few years.... All the same. Nothing change- the same boring, heavy and uninspiring old fashioned menu. Cheesy music, overwhelming service. It wasn't bad, but definitely wasn't worth it, what we paid for it. Pizza is good- proper Italian.

I have been completely taken back by my experience in Emiliano's. I was completely stunned. I had heard great things of the restaurant so decided to try it with my boyfriend which was outstanding, best steak I've ever tasted! We were treated like royalty by easily the best mannered staff in waterford. It was on my return with my family... More

We've eaten at several good restaurants on our trip, but this is has been the highlight so far. The most important aspect of course is the food, and this was fantastic Italian fare. Arrive early for the special two course meal. Some in our party had the salad, and remarked it was the best they had. I went for the... More
