“Family birthday dinner- wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

My mother decided a trip to Arthur Ave was in order for her 75th birthday this weekend - we browsed some reviews online and Emilia's caught our eye. What a great choice. Service was terrific, waitress was very good - 8 people in our party (5 adults, 3 kids) - we had 3 appetizers, 7 entrees, plenty of wine, coffee/tea and desserts for all - $375 incl tip. What a great value. Lamb shank special and Wild Boar Ragout special were among the favorites. Linguine w/clams was amazing - so fresh. My Italian husband gave the homemade manicotti a thumbs up. The fried calamari was great as well and the amaretto gelatto nut ball dessert is still being raved about the next day. My mom had a great birthday, thank you Emilia's. We will be making a return trip soon!

“Impromtu Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

We selected Emilia's Restaurant last night after looking at their menu while shopping on Arthur Avenue. We were very impressed with our Special entree of chicken stuffed with shrimp and sun dried tomatoes. The bread was delicious and the prices were very affordable. Service was at a great pace and the ambience was quaint. We certainly would revisit.

“Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Very quaint, nothing spectacular. Cute decor, really good food. Nothing really fancy. Good service. Parking won't really be a problem unless you go on weekend nights.

A nice Italian restaurant with friendly staff, good simple food and affordable prices. Clean bathrooms. The dining room needs a little cleaning. Overall, very good.
