      Walked in without reservations and were able to be seated within 10 minutes. Good Italian food without the frills. Not overly loud so we were able to carry on a conversation without difficulty. Would define5l6 go back.

      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.

      Some of the best Italian food I've ever had. The chicken parm delish and the grilled octopus is Devine. A must try!
