in the heart of Little Italy in the Bronx.
It is the perfect place to relax before or after a show, a Yankee game, a trip to the Bronx Zoo,
or a walk in New York Botanical Gardens.
You will come as a guest and leave as one of the family!
Food amazing and the servers super kind. Definitely recommend going and dining.
Good food and atmosphere!
The outdoor patio had a nice ambiance and the food was very good. I had the lobster ravioli and I licked my plate clean. However it took a very long time for the waiter to come to our table as he was having a long conversation with the customers next to our table. But overall I would recommend Emilia’s for the food.
First time in a restaurant in one year because of covid-19.
We wanted Emilia's to be the first restaurant we went back to and we drove two hours to get there.
The food , ambience, service , hospitality were all excellent.
Wonderful. We will go back!
Cute place, delicious food, patio is really nice!
We were from out of town and booked reservations for an extended family dinner. Reservations online were easy to do. They were so accommodating, the food was delicious, service friendly and they set us up in a semi-private area of the restaurant. It couldn’t have been better. We left well satisfied with all.
We always love to come to this un-pretentious and well-served spot on Arthur Ave. Food is consistently very good, service is always top notch.
Always a great experience. Like Sunday dinner in a warm and happy Italian homo.
Outstanding! We originally made reservations inside, but moved to the lovely back patio once we arrived. The owner was so hospitable and moved tables together no issue, like we were family. The food and service were outstanding.
To see the owners there upon arrival and exit just made us feel like we were joining with family. Wonderful experience and food.
The outdoor patio is a lovely place to have a meal. The grilled octopus and fried calamari were outstanding.
Delicious food in a warm, friendly setting. Family takes pride in every dish served. An outing at Emilia's never disappoints
We enjoyed our lunch at Emilias. The bread was excellent and the chicken dishes we had were very good. I felt like the dishes were slightly bland though and needed salt and more lemon in my fiancé’s chicken piccata. Also due to the pandemic and dining restrictions, we had to sit outside. They had heaters but it was a little bit cold outside
Surprisingly good food. Very good service also. A great find in the heart of Arthur Ave.
Great food, service and nice atmosphere. Will come back again.
Great service. Food was delicious.
Amazing! Best meatballs I've ever had! Everything was delicious and the service was also great.
It’s hard to go wrong on Arthur Avenue and Emilia’s is no exception! I especially want to highlight the wonderful staff who made our meal ever more enjoyable. I’d recommend also saving room for dessert!!
perfect every time
Perfect all around - our table was completed separated from others due to COVID, the restaurant abides by all protocol, we felt very safe. Service was excellent, food delicious.
Great experience! Food is amazing
The Linguini alla Vongole was delicious. It was filled with many, many tiny clams, and the price was really reasonable. The service was great, and the beautifuly murals and the Elvis provided just the right touch!
It was honestly amazing. The food, service, everything. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to go somewhere nice with a date.
We went here for Valentine’s Day 2021 to feel human again, got to eat inside and low and behold 4 days later we are still alive! Food was very good, service was great and the conversation we had with the Manager/Owner? was fantastic. Can’t wait to come back say hi, have a drink and catch up!
Food was delicious and the service was excellent!!
My wife and I went there for the feb 14th celebration, I do not regret. The place is amazing and the food is incredible. They took measure for the Covid-19 and I like the way they do that. Very nice way to separate the tables. I will definitely go back there. Server was polite and cordial.
Romantic Valentine’s dinner was perfect.
Nice quiet atmosphere in separate area. Friendly service. Very good food, four of us with different entrees and all enjoyed our meals. Waiters were accommodating for take out orders ad well. Highly recommend Emilia’s.
If you are looking for great food, great service and great ambiance look no further...Emilia's has it all. We dined out back and the overhead heaters kept us warm enough. Nick our waiter is the absolute best! And the food from appetizers to desserts were superb! This is our favorite go to for lunch or dinner when down at Arthur Ave. You won't be disappointed! Thanks also to Joann for always making us feel special!
Back Garden was great during these Covid times. It was slightly cool, but the heaters did the job and with a couple of layers on us, the coats weren't needed. Food was very good and the mussels were big, plump and in a wonderful red sauce(that I took home). My husband and I would go back again! Bathroom was very clean.
It was my friend’s birthday and Emilia’s has the only socially distanced outdoor back semi-enclosed patio that I will go to during the shutdown, so I took her there for lunch. Staff is always congenial, and food is always excellent, and they even brought us a slice of cake with a candle and sang Happy Birthday (masked, of course)! I have to mention that I have gluten and allium sensitivities and they are always especially accommodating in that regard. Never disappointed at Emilia’s.
Great outdoor patio in back with heaters. Heartbreaking seeing all the empty indoor tables.due to covid shutdowns. Excellent food and experience.
We had a dinner for my Birthday and it was perfect. Close to the Botanical Garden winter Glow show. The back patio really made a nice atmosphere for an enjoyable delicious dinner.
Had never been here before and wanted to try a new restaurant on Arthur Avenue. Very pleasantly surprised. Food was excellent. Pastas were served al dente. Everything was delicious and moderately priced. Definitely a keeper.
The food was very good. Delicious. Little Italy in the Bronx, is more lively than Little Italy Manhattan.
Beautiful outdoor heated patio, great atmosphere and great food!
Very nice restaurant. Exceptional staff. I would definitely visit again
Third time there. Always a favorite. The ability to eats on the patio, outside, heated and spaced. The food was always superb .
Great food and a nice heated outside patio that is covered.
They didn’t even have the items on the menu. save time and go to other little Italy restaurants.
