I'm told by friends that the best time to go is when they have a wine-tasting. Because we were only in town at Christmas, that wasn't an option....

Traveling north on 81, Staunton is the usual stopping point along the highway. This restaurant is located in downtown Staunton. Its a nice Italian restaurant. Our meals were very good and authentic. Highly recommend. Good for couples or date night. Would not take children.

I should have went with my first instincts about this eatery. We walked into an uninviting dark entryway to it’s bar area where the smell of stale cigarettes and other off-smelling odors greeted us. We were shown to our table located in the dining room...More

This was a last minute reservation for a business meeting and Emilio’s out did themselves! The wait staff was so attentive and the food absolutely outstanding!
