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.

Traditional Italian looking restaurant playing elevator music. Very quiet, which might be normal for a Sunday night. Our waitress was friendly, but had no information to provide about the town or it's attractions. My husband really liked his dish, but mine was overwhelmingly cheesy and seemed to lack the egg which is usually part of a Carbonara. We had to... More

My boyfriend and I finally decided that we wanted Italian food for his big birthday dinner, so we made our way to Emilio's. We seated quickly in a very nice dining room. Our server gave us the specials, and we ended up ordering the appetizer special for the night: beef tips, shrimp, spinach, and tomatoes in a sherry sauce served... More

This is a very nice Italian restaurant with tablecloths and cloth napkins but welcoming people in various degrees of formal clothing. Blue jeans to suits, you will be comfortable here. Reasonable prices on fairly standard Italian dishes, all well prepared. I have had the butternut squash ravioli and the lobster ravioli and they are delicious. They have good service, and... More

The food was very good and service was good. It had a pleasant atmosphere and was clean. The bruschetta was very good, but for the price was a little small. Everything else was a good value. Their Alfredo sauce had a ton of flavor, and the chicken marsala had the best marsala sauce I have ever had!

We stopped in Staunton, VA on way up north winding up downtown. Looking for a place to eat we found Emilio's and could not have been happier. The service was fine and the food was excellent. I had the seafood pasta and savored every morsel. My wife had soup and salad and was very please. In a discussion about Parmigiana... More

If you love authentic Italian food.........Emilio's is the place to go. Pleasant and friendly servers as well as the service. You can tell these employees have been trained and it shows. AND they are dressed for work in nice attire and look presentable. Now, on to the lovely food! Anything on the menu is delicious and the presentation wonderful. This... More

We usually don't go to Italian restaurants but Emilio's was rated well so we thought we would give it a try. We both had the seafood special and it was good - but it did not knock our socks off. Service and drinks were great.

I had a good experience at this restaurant. The wait staff were pleasant and attentive. To me the entrée was delicious; and since it came with bread and a salad, it was a good value for the price. I would definitely eat there again.
