The food was very good. The waiter done really good at first but then it took him awhile to get back to our table and it wasn't very busy.

Had a delectable summer Sunday lunch which satisfied 3 generations. My daughter's panini with prime rib was succulent but not too heavy for lunch. My mom's grilled chicken salad with homemade vinegarette was unforgettable. Only wish local tomatoes were used on my caprese. Calamari were crisp and tasty. Excellent service. Lots of regulars.

Both of us had veal parm. It was burned on the bottom. The wine glasses were small. Pricey compared with The Mill where we had a much better meal at a lesser price.

Our food was excellent. I lived in Rome Italy and this restaurant is as good as anything you find in Italy.. The clam chowder was full of clams and not too creamy. Salad was fresh and crisp. I had the Linguini and clams. Delicious just the proportion of garlic wine and clams. Mysterious wife had the Ravioli. Great tomato sauce,... More

A restaurant that is quite attractive, and has crisp white tablecloths and stemmed glassware, should be one that is not let down by an inept kitchen. Though some 'Trip Advisor' reviewers report a lack of staff warmth, I found service at Emilio's to be good. Emilio's has a good selection of wines, and my orders of it were promptly served.... More

When I go to a nice restaurant with good reviews, I expect to be treated as a guest of value and to receive friendly, attentive service. Here, I felt as if I was a low rated customer, probably because, as another reviewer noted, I did not "stink of money." We watched 3 other tables get seated, served and checked out,... More

Emilio's is one of my favorite restaurants. My granddaughter is gluten-free and she likes it because they pay attention to her special needs. If the food she wants is not on the menu they talk to her and make good suggestions. One of her favorites is the shrimp scampi, a dish with lemon sauce, shrimps, and gluten-free pasta. Dessert is...

Save your money. This place used to be great but then again that was more than five years ago. The owner is very conceited. It's not a very friendly atmosphere. The restaurant still looks nice inside. But the food is mediocre. Prices are very high service is not the best. There are much much better places in Staunton to eat... More

Medium priced Italian food but very well done. Close to the theatre round the corner if you are taking in dinner before a performance.

Seventeen of us dined at Emilio's on Saturday night for a family celebration. I was pleasantly surprised by the high quality and tasty dishes that were selected by our guests. Everyone raved about their food except for the shrimp dish. My dish, the chicken marsala, was the best that I have ever tasted, and that is a dish I order... More
