      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!

      Emilio’s is a simple, good old school Italian restaurant, the food was good if not great, but expensive for what you get. $45 for a veal parmigiana? I guess you pay for the location as this is right where Soho starts. Not very special, service...More

      Sometimes we crave for new and inventive menu items. And sometimes you just crave honest, well prepared old school food. If the later is what you're after get on down to Emilio's Ballato. Located on busy East Houston, the place has a patinaed look to...More
