With many restaurants offering similar menus, differentiation comes from the level of service. Da Emilio provides friendly and attentive service without intrusion. On only my second visit, I was welcomed with, "Hello. Good to see you again". Good food and a good position to watch the world go by. Highly recommended.

Basic food at average prices for the area. Seafood risotto shared - full of shells & a few unrecognisable bits. Tasted good but was a bit put off. Pizzas big But too cheesy and soggy! Perhaps keep looking...

What can I say? The food was great. The sevice was great The ambience was great. KEEP IT UP! Emilio! We need more... More

Busy, buzzy outside space. We had pasta -( portions so huge asked for 1 to share but it was still enormous!) followed by steak which was very tasty if not meltingly tender and house wine. Good value

Very helpful staff. A pleasant experience, sitting outside. Would certainly have eaten there in the evening had we not been returning to our hotel.

Had lunch here. Actually Pizza with ham, olives, artichoke, and mozzarella. Service was very good. The pizza was very good, especially compared to Da Gennaro down the street, where we had the same pizza a few days before.

We went out for dinner at Emilio's twice. The first time was excellent, great service and great food (albeit rather pricey). Because of the great experience, we went again another day, and were rather disappointed. The food was average, service clearly not as good as the previous time. Overall it's not a "no go", but probably about just as good... More

Several of our group had dinner here one night. The food was very good. It was a very cool night, we ate in the tent-like area in front of the restaurant and they had infared heaters on. It was pleasant.

This restaurant was in a great location in the middle of everything, so we were expecting a 'touristy'-type place with so-so food. We were pleasantly surprised! Not only was the service great and attentive, but the food was delicious. I had a pizza and a salad, my wife had some pasta, and the rest of our group (there were eight... More
