“Very nice place with good service”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Food was quite good, especially appetizers, and prices were extremely fair. I would definitely go back, but cannot say it was the best Italian food I have had in the area. I recommend going early because all good places on Arthur Avenue get crowded on weekends.

“Good food at reasonable prices”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

This is one of the best restaurants on Arthur Avenue in The Bronx. Unlike the much more expensive Zero Otte Nove down the block, the place is always easy to get a table at, and the owners are very friendly. And the food is delicious.

“One of the best in Bronx's Little Italy”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Emilia's never disappoints. An extensive southern Italian menu; call it "red sauce" if you must, but it's of the highest quality and freshness. Go for the Sicilian rice balls (arancini) as an appetizer, then try any of the pasta, meat or fish dishes, all in good portions. There are always interesting daily specials and good desserts. A diverse wine list as well. Reasonably priced.

“Italy in the Bronx”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

Viva Emilia's in Arthur Avenue in the Bronx. A restaurant that welcomes you with open arms, and treats you like la famiglia. Reservations were honored promptly, a rarity now a days. We were seated to enjoy a most savory meal. The Fried Calamari with marinara sauce, and Mussels marinara were a perfect beginning to a culinary trip to Italy. Pasta served to perfection, al dente, with sauce that complements it totally. Salmon Marechiaro to die for, and resuscitate later for dessert. My family was happily satisfied with their selection; what a great meal. Grazie Emilia's for serving good, honest food.
