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

We had eaten here several years ago and loved it so much that it became legendary in our memories! On this visit we wanted to introduce our good friends to Emilio's. I booked ahead and was even called back on the day of our reservation to reconfirm. When we arrived, I was dismayed by the cigarette smoke smell that permeated... More

The food was delicious and the wait staff excellent! Our waitress was great and on top of it! Deserts are also good and restaurant very elegant. The lunch prices are a little high but for the quality not too bad. Not very kid or family friendly though. I would recommend only for couples or adult party.
