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

To say that the meal at Emiliani was one of the best I've ever had is no exaggeration. This is a neighborhood restaurant; straight forward and non-pretentious. My wife had the chicken parm and I the chicken francese. Both were excellent and cooked to perfection. The pasta that comes with the entrees came with the traditional marinara sauce. My wife... More

From Chicken Cordon Blue and Grilled Salmon, to Chicken Parm, delicious pasta dishes and some of the tastiest soups ever. Every dish is a winner, served hot and fresh. Full bar in adjoining room, and... More

This is a family owned restaurant that we have been going to for years. The staff is great, and Franco (Sr) at the bar mixes perfect (and generous) drinks. Franco (Jr) in the kitchen does a fantastic job of preparing traditional and contemporary Italian dishes. There are usually specials every day, which are always worth a try. They are consistently...

I have visited this restaurant many times over the years and I always feel welcome whenever we visit. The owner greets you and continues to have traditional good Italian cuisine at reasonable prices. He tries to be more traditional and classical with his decor and service. I highly recommend a visit for people who enjoy sitting down to a good... More

This is just a quick note to give high praise to Emiliani Ristorante. The dining area was cozy, but tables were sufficiently spaced, so that we had plenty of privacy. The atmosphere was quiet and peaceful, although the tables were all filled---no loud music or clattering dishes. Service was excellent and friendly. There was a principal waiter, but if any... More

My family and I were in town for a long weekend. Our first night there, we asked our 4 year old daughter what she wanted for dinner- she said "spaghetti". We passed this restaurant and decided to pull in and give it a try. We are so glad we did! Food was delicious!
