A pleasant surprise good food, generous portions at good price.

We asked the desk clerk at our motel about restaurants. Being a Sunday evening, he said that the only restaurant open was a nearby diner. Surprised to find Emiliani open with a number of cars in the parking lot, we went in. We found a nice, cozy restaurant with tasteful Italian décor. The small... read more

We have been going to Emiliani's for many years. Often for a holiday, the chef offers only a special menu with very few selections. This Valentines Day there was a special menu, but it had many choices. Both entrees that we ordered were spectacular! The service was very good despite the large crowd of diners.

Returning from a day at Woodstock, we stopped in this locally recommended eatery in Saugerties and were more than pleased. The food, Wine and Service were exemplary. Parking adequate and the ambiance was splendid. When traveling in this area again, will surely stop by!

We are repeat customers of Emiliani's for more than two decades. The staff/owners are very welcoming, the food is excellent. When in Saugerties area, put this restaurant on your list to visit.

The cuisine was delicious and the drinks were very good. I noticed they had Caiperinha drinks on the menu and although they first had a confused look, they seemed to be obsessed with mixing one up. It turned out perfectly. One problem, though. I ordered the fried oysters for an appetizer (which I will freely admit was a mistake on... More

We were in the mood for Italian and this place hit the spot. The warm homemade bread was great and the meatballs tasted like my mom used to make. Definitely will be back!!

We used to enjoy this restaurant, but the last few visits were very disappointing. The final time, we had a dinner reservation with a friend to celebrate his birthday. We arrived a few minuted early and were told there would be a one hour wait. When we said we had a reservation, we were told, very rudely, that all the... More
