Pasta e Fagioli
Chicken breast crusted in parmesan over spinach in a brandi touch of cream
Delicious with excellent service and ambiance!
Absolutely too loud. No reason for people to be shouting so loud as we couldn’t hear one another. Place needs serious acoustics upgrade. On the other hand, the food was excellent but it could have been more enjoyable if the background noise was controlled better
Beautiful restaurant, delicious food. A little pricey though as everything is a la carte.
Wonderful time celebrating my birthday with my loved ones ... Andy, Tony, Nick and crew were awesome ... the outside setup is awesome with great ambience and food was excellent!!
Food was great as well as the service!
Great!! Food was wonderful. Splitting a salad and and a pasta allowed to each have a fine entree. Wine was excellent, served with nice glasses. We will be back
Consistently excellent food and superior service in a beautiful charming decor.
Terrible. IDK what happened. I am TIRED of the COVID excuse. As a diner we are risking ourselves more than the Chef. The Food was Terrible. It was like they did not care.
Awesome as always !
Traditional Italian food. Not too innovative.
What a great night! We were celebrating a family birthday and arrived for an early dinner. We chose to dine in the outdoor area, which is beautiful! The service was attentive, excellent all around. Gamberi fra diavolo is always too tempting to pass up! Stuffed zucchini blossom was outstanding and the gnocchi special was also very good. I’m not a connoisseur, so I just asked for a nice red wine. It was delicious and they didn’t overcharge us. Staff goes out of their way to make sure guests are comfortable. Have been dining here for years and they are consistently good.
Had an amazing experience overall! Service and food were absolutely delicious. Will definetely be going back.
Fabulous restaurant with friendly and helpful servers! Local gem we found when we were in from out of state. Would recommend highly. We ate there twice in three days because we had such a great experience!
We dined outside under a tent. Sides were able to close to block our table from the elements. Food delicious and service great. Very accommodating.
We love this place. It is a staple for occasions and even just date nights. Food is fabulous and service is outstanding. Very proud staff that wants to impress and they do every time.
Superb food and warm attentive service. Beautiful interior.
Excellent food and great service. Our visit was delightful.
The amount of people in the room we were in was a little disconcerting. It was hard to tell if the tables were 6ft away from each other. The food was good except the chicken parm was overcooked and the cheese was burnt, making it hard to cut, which should never happen in a chicken cutlet pounded so thin (which I like the thinness, just not the overcooking).
Excellent food, friendly and welcoming staff, great service...one of our all time favorites.
Always a great dinner and drinks here. Andy and his staff treat us like family each time we visit. Save room for the dessert cart selections !
The food was incredible, was like eating straight from someone’s home cooking. We had the pasta arrabiata and the Valentine’s Day special ravioli with vodka sauce. Everything from the food, the service, the picture taking skills of the waiter (he even gave us a Polaroid picture of us) was exquisite.
Best place ever! Food is amazing
Really beautiful decor. I felt like I was in Italy. The service was very friendly and accommodating. My husband and I shared the eggplant appetizer, which was delicious. I had the chicken special for that night, which was excellent, and my husband had the veal, which he said was delicious. We shared a tartufo for dessert, which was delicious. We really enjoyed our meal at Cafe Emilia.
Perfect evening with fantastic food and service
Andy and his staff never disappoint. Great meal...great drinks... great atmosphere!!! Best in the area
From the moment we walked in to the moment we left , nothing but Amazing.The welcoming and professional staff. The perfectly prepared food with the perfect amount of an amazing red sauce'. Everything about this place leaves you with a desire to return. Thank you to all for an enjoying evening.
Dinner was ok but not what was expected, especially for the price of meals. We had an early dinner and were seated in the side room which is either frigid (winter time now) or when they put the heat on, sweltering. There was no in between and the tables were way too close in the times of Covid. I wish we were seated in the main dining room where it was definitely roomier (especially when we had a reservation and no one was there). The food was ok but nothing spectacular. I was disappointed as they brought around the dessert cart. I saw the cart when we entered the restaurant and assumed it was just for show. I then saw that's where they are serving dessert from which is kind of gross when you think of the amount of people who are breathing near it and just sitting in the front of a restaurant all day, nevermind that it's likely also not Covid recommended to have food sitting out in front of everyone and serve from it.
Food and service were very good. The wine list is overpriced. Noise level was surprisingly high in the room we were in. Needs something on the walls to deaden the sound. I would go back for the food and nurse a glass of wine through the meal.
Delicious meal with outstanding service. I’ll definitely dine here again.
Fantastic food, ambience and management. Highly recommend.
Amazing food! I had the fra Diablo shrimp and I asked them to skip the “hot” lol and they were so accommodating.. the best red sauce I have had in a long time!!yum! great house cab ... meant to ask them what it was... next time ... very friendly and welcoming!!! Highly recommend...
Great food in a comfortable atmosphere. Service was very attentive. Very good selection of wines. Specials are very inventive. My double it veal chop was very good and cooked to perfection. Will return when in area again
Absolutely breath takeing for a seconed I thought I was in france
We had a great meal. The pumkin ravoli was delicious. They made a pasta dish for my dish which he enjoyed. Bread was great too. Love the atmosphere.
Superb food served at proper temperature. A very special place.
My husband and I go often. The staff makes the experience a pleasure every time. The manager makes extra effort to remember names, details and always has a kind word. The food is very good and they are always open to input, as my husband is a picky eater. We have brought family and friends and each experience always makes everyone feels like family. Yes, the food is very good and the atmosphere is lovely...but it is the staff that separates this place apart from anywhere else.
Always great food and service. Gnocchi, veal and chicken with all amazing sauces! Never had dessert here but OMG, the coconut cake and Napoleon cake was to die for!
Delicious as always!
