We LOVE Emilio's!! Best Italian food in NYC. Everything is outstanding, from the focaccia to the dessert. Definitely would recommend!!!!!
What a great experience to have during our trip to NYC. Our wait on a Wed night was short for our party of three. The place was packed and the food everywhere looked great. The space is unique; like no other Italian place. Our server, Manuel, spoiled us and the host staff was so kind. We enjoyed our pasta dishes, wine, and overall dinner at Emilio's.
Fantastic food, attentive service. Great place! We were served family style: grilled octopus, green salads to start. Then two different pastas and meats. Everything was first rate. We highly recommend it.
