Stopped in Emilio’s while on a walking tour and had a very nice quiet lunch. Italian wedding soup was perfect and the cannelloni was good. Would definitely come back and try the dinner menu

My wife enjoyed a very good meal here. The food was delicious and the service very good. The restaurant has a nice wine list. Most importantly they don’t rush you so you can enjoy your meal.

We were fortunate enough to find Emilio's for dinner tonight. It was delicious. Our waitress, Angela, was stellar. She helped us make great decisions about beer and dinners. Extensive beer selection and good vegetarian options. I had spaghetti pomodoro, which was great! Would go again...More

The food was delicious, good wine selection, great wait staff and the music was perfect for a nice Italian meal. Pleasant and worth the drive a few miles off the highway.

No dress code but I do advise you to not go too casual in the evening hours. My husband and I stopped here for a quick bite to eat after a very long day, and the mood called for more than casual clothes. That was clear when... More
