Sat on the roof top as it was a nice evening. Large, by the bottle, wine list….we did finish at dinner so we corked it and took it with us. Food was excellent as well. A band was setting up as we left, wish we could have stayed for that. Everyone was very friendly, great service

We stopped in for what would be a tasty lunch. Good selection of traditional Italian food. Emilio himself played host and he was most gracious. There was only one server for the entire dining area and her demeanor left much to be desired. Getting my check was quite a wait and put a damper on the entire dining experience. I... More

We were looking for a latish dinner place and Emilio's was one of the few restaurants open--a nice surprise! The food was really good and the portions were generous, the waitstaff was friendly and despite the fact that we were among the very few diners there and they were probably ready to close, there was no sense of being rushed....

We stopped for a meal in this town and came across emilio's. It was one of the best Italian meals we have had, the ambiance was very good, relaxed and friendly. The food was excellent and it was not expensive but only average prices. I would certainly recommend it.

We ate here while staying at the Stonewall Jackson Hotel, it was just a short walk. The food exceeded our expectations. I often find Italian food too heavy, but this was very tasty, light and fresh. The service was also exceptional. The server insisted on replacing my wife's wine when she mentioned that it was not what she had expected.... More

We were traveling through the area, staying overnight locally, and Emilio’s was recommended to us by a friend who used to live in the area. It was a tad on the expensive side, but the food was very good. We started with house salads and enjoyed them. I had the butternut squash ravioli in a sage cream sauce and it... More

Very good Italian restaurant. This isn't the Olive Garden, thankfully! Large beer and wine menus. A previous review stated ambience was lacking, don't agree with that statement. Nice restaurant with light jazz in the background, very easy to have a conversation. Service was good and didn't wait long for anything. Ceasar salad was the best had at a restaurant. If... More

Service was good. Food was just okay. Ambience needs help. We almost turned around and left after stepping in off the street because the smell of smoke from the bar was so overwhelming. Insalata caprese was good--nice local tomatoes. Calamari was very rubbery. Pasta was fine. Salad was blah. Bread rolls were atrocious. They tasted like they were baked from... More
