Tripadvisor did it again! I booked a night in Waterford as a treat for my partners birthday. My first port of call was here for restaurant reviews. Emiliano's came out on top so I booked a table! It was SUPERB! First of all the staff were so friendly and helpful. They appeared like magic when you needed something but never hovered. Always attentive without disturbing you or your conversation. The atmosphere was wonderful - it was so busy that there was no music and no need. The natural ambiance was perfect. And the food....wow! I had the Antipasto starter and the Tagliatelle with prawns and spinach. Portions were very generous and every mouthful was divine. The meat on the antipasto board was of the highest quality and the presentation was beautiful. My pasta was seasoned to perfection with nothing else needed (but I do love black pepper and parmesan on my pasta so I added these). My partner got the mushrooms to start and the rack of lamb. OMG!!!!! It was faultless. Meat was beautifully rare and tender with a caramalised onion sauce to die for. Although my meal was delicious - I was very jealous and now need to make another trip to waterford to have the lamb for myself! Emiliano himself was there making sure everyone was happy and we had a very pleasant chat with him. I wish this restaurant was in Dublin so we could eat here all the time. Value was outstanding. Without doubt one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. My only advice is go there very hungry or share a starter! We almost needed to be rolled out :-)
