The hotel where we stayed recommended this restaurant and we were very pleased they did. The food was terrific, the service was excellent, and the restaurant itself had a great ambiance. The prices were also quite reasonable.

This used to be one of our "go to" dining places in Stanton. Recently (October, November, December 2014), the fare has been lackluster, the wines forgettable, and the service only passable. The last experience (December) tasted as if the food had come out of the freezer and "warmed" for serving (soggy eggplant, thin sauce on the spaghetti, a wine serving... More

We enjoyed the food, wine choices, and atmosphere so much that we went back for a second night! The staff were well informed and very helpful with the menu.

I ate here with a friend and we had the calamari appetizer and the lobster/shrimp/scallop in white wine lemon sauce which was a special. For dessert we had the tiramisu. The calamari and entrée were wonderful, but the tiramisu was a bit of a disappointment. Our server, Eleanor, was lovely. She was polite, helpful, and gave us just the right... More

We were so pleasantly surprised at Emilios, to find something like butternut squash ravioli in sage butter....which is what I had. Not your typical italian restaurant fare, and way, way yummy. The mian thing that I wanted to mention to others is how relatively-quiet the downstairs space was (didn't go upstairs; it might be fine, too). Every seat was taken,... More

This self named italian restaurant is always the right choice for families, couples or even a business dinner. Emilio is always on-site and his dishes are superb and generous. We go whenever we are in Staunton (several times a year) and have taken many guests: Emilio's never fails to please!

Just stopped in looking for a nice late lunch and were impressed with the quality of this Italian food. Clams and linguine were fresh, rich and wonderfully presented with the marinara sauce on the side to add to taste. The eggplant was wonderfully rich and nicely presented. We will return on our next visit to Staunton. Apparently, Emilio is not... More

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....
