“Very good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

A restaurant, not right where all the tourists are, but it is still a very busy place - in my mind a very good sign! The staff is very friendly, the meals are excellent! There was absolutely nothing we could say against this place! Great food, good wines, great Espresso and very friendly staff. Would go back there anytime.

“1st Class Italian Restuarant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Visted this Restuarant twice. Everything was superb, the cuisine and the staff. Worth a visit. I could find no fault with this Restuarant.

Had a meal with a group of friends and all really enjoyed the meal, though at 70 euros a head, including drinks it was quite pricey.

“A truly authentic Italian experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

One of the difficulties when eating out in groups is finding somewhere that will satisfy everyone; Emiliano's presents no such difficulties. From the moment the telephone booking was made, a rather pleasant experience, the visit to Emiliano's began with heightened expectation of something special. On arrival, we were greeted with much Latin joviality and Italian hospitality, escorted to our table in this busy, beautifully homely and warm restaurant. The decor is eclectic but very Italian without being clichéd, it just looked right.

The bread and olive oil arrived immediately and was fresh and crusty. Drink orders were taken and just the right amount of time was given to peruse the menu. The menu choices were extensive and varied, there was something to interest all palettes in the group and prices were reasonable.

A starter was ordered to be shared between two and we were told that there were 6 or 7 pieces in the dish, what arrived was a large bowl with easily ten pieces and the comment, 'a starter for the table,' and no extra charge... a very nice gesture.

Two pasta dishes, one with prawns and the other with chicken and mixed mushrooms, lamb, pizza, fillet steak and a chicken and Gorgonzola dish were ordered and each diner was absolutely delighted with their order, everything was really excellent and much sharing and tasting followed.

Service was very friendly and good humoured, the impression was made that our presence was welcome and a pleasure.

Highly recommended! The highlight of a short break to the south east.
