we dropped in for a meal and found the ristorante to be busy... the staff was right on top of clearing a table for us... we had a great meal without to much delay. I ordered the chicken parm. Very tasty. We've eaten here before and look forward to our return. The only down side is that the acoustics are a little rough when the place is busy. Makes it hard to have a quiet conversation!

What a find! My family and I were pleasantly surprised to have found such an authentic Italian restaurant! On our way to Lake George from Long Island, we decided to stop off at Saugerties for a nice dinner... and we were very happy with our decision. We did not have a reservation on a Friday night, but that was no problem. The hostess had a table ready for us within a few minutes. With two very fussy children, our server recommended the tortellini and spaghetti bolognese for them. They absolutely loved it! As for my husband and I, we were blown away by the specials they offered... roasted duck and scallops with fettuccine. Out of this world good!! We also wanted to comment on the delicious homemade bread... we ate 2 baskets! Truly fresh and wonderful food! Service was great, as the staff was friendly and efficient. The atmosphere was cozy and inviting. Will definitely return. Wish we had great Italian food like this where we live!

A bit skeptical we went to Saugerties to find a restaurant. We have not regretted our choice: Emiliana serves a good Italian kitchen influenced by American cooking (portions, sauces) with real quality ingredients: wine, Parmesan cheese, Parma ham, and the real fresh tomato sauce over the al dente pasta. The service was Italian friendly.

Almost everything was outstanding. Pasta sauce was a little salty we thought, so rating that item good. If they had Lola's sauce (Gahanna, OH) for the pasta, there would be no reason to go anywhere else to eat Italian, period, end of story. We enjoyed it so much the first night (stayed in town on business), we stopped off the next night on way back from Long Island going to Albany. Easy to get to as it is within a couple of miles or so from I87.

My wife and I recently ate here and enjoyed our meal very much. We arrived at 5:30 on a Friday, walked in and were the first dinner guests in the whole restaurant. We were immediately greeted and seated but were a bit apprehensive to not see any other customers. Is the food going to be fresh? Are we going to get leftovers reheated? The answer was a resounding NO! First of all the homemade bread was amazing! The homemade marinara was good...fresh light with a slight acidity. Very nice. The pasta was cooked perfectly aldiente. The only gripe we had, which is a minor one since it doesn't relate to the food is the decor. The dining room is combination Spanish Mission, German Gasthaus, Italian Grotto. Regardless, everything was clean and in good order. We would eat here again.
