“Honest italian cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Very popular place, hopefully quality of food will remain, felt somewhat pressured to order certain plates and was sit on worst inside table. Otherwise outstanding.

“Acceptable but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

Dinner for 6 this month was acceptable but I wouldn't bother to go back. Artichokes appetizer was fairly tasty but messy. The sea bass entree was too buttery. None of the food was memorable. Not bad, just not good. Beer and wine only. Grandma sitting behind the bar on her chair was cute and gave the place a family feel.

“Did not disappoint!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012 via mobile

Looked for a great Italian Restaurant for our 15th wedding anniversary and chose Emilio's. The Chilean Sea Bass special was cooked perfectly and the Veal Osso Bucco special won't be forgotten anytime soon. Wow! All the extra touches were greatly appreciated. So very happy with our choice. It's crazy to have waited this long to actually get risotto cooked perfectly.

“Authentic Italian cuisine. Popular local spot.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

The owner greeted local regulars enthusiastically and was very friendly to us as well. The food was very good. Service was excellent, fast and came with recommendations for special items on the menu. Decent ambiance, intimate setting. Probably only seats about 60 people.

“What a night and meal!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

My wife and I came here because of the great reviews on TA and yelp, and we are glad we did! We live in Chicago (Little Italy neighborhood) and have experienced lots of great Italian restaurants...This place was one of our favorites! The eggplant app was soooo good, along with the rest of the meal! Very well priced for the quality of food. The bill came to around $100 for two people (2 glasses of wine, an app, shared soup, 2 entrees and dessert) . Yani was our server and excellent! Great family restaurant with charm! This is one place not to miss if you are in the area!!! Beto (owners son) was a charmer and very friendly!
