Excellent

Emiliano's is always good value and a great atmosphere - the atmosphere is guaranteed as it is necessary to book well in advance, even for midweek bookings. Can't be said for any other Waterford restaurant I would think. Always uses Italian chefs and most, if not all, of the staff are Italian and... read more

We went to Emiliano's at a stop on a road trip. The food was amazing. The chicken they made in a tomato sauce was sublime. The service was excellent and very warm. Emiliano got us a special chili paste made by his mum in Italy which made us absolute fans. I would recommend anyone in the area to absolutely visit.... More

Have been to Emilianos twice and both occasions have been very good! Good pricing, I always order a pizza when i'm here and they are gorgoeus. Very big pizza for one person so it is a good idea to have one between 2 people. Will continue to visit here!

A very warm and comfortable restaurant. I started with the bruschetta because a previous review had recommended it. It was just ok as the bread crust was too hard and in general I found the bread crust too hard. For the main course I had spaghetti and meatballs as I was graving some good tomato sauce. It was fantastic. So... More
