    The food lacked flavor and presentation and the dishes were not warm. We had to send dishes back and received tmr replacements that were undercooked. The waitress was not welcoming and nothing about it added to a the special occasion we chose to celebrate at this restaurant.

    We were very excited for this meal but it fell a bit flat. Portions are very small. The flavors were there but some things lacking on execution. We got the Brussels sprouts and they had barely been roasted - very chewy. My husband got the Bolognese and while the pasta was homemade it was soggy and over cooked, almost like noodles in a soup. There was very minimal sauce on either of our dishes. The best dish was the calamari- delicious. We would go back but hopefully we just didn’t get them on the best night. Bar was nice as was the bartender and hostess was prompt and seated us quickly and in a great spot. Overall would rate a 7/10

    Just a very pleasant evening - our table was near the bar and the bartender was our waiter - his special Manhattan is a favorite of my husband and he makes a great martini too! his recommendation of the lasagna was excellent. We weren’t rushed and felt very comfortable!

    I felt the food was average. Two of the four dishes did not have a lot of flavor. The lasagna was served cold and was over cooked. The server although polite and welcoming must have been new. One of our party Ordered the house Chablis and the server brought red wine. This person just let it go rather than send it back. Just an OK experience. The parking lot behind the restaurant was difficult to find.

    I was a first-time customer and had no idea what to expect. My guest was a return guest with rave reviews. The charred bread in both the Sixteen Bricks Bread and Pan Formaggi "Cheesy Bread" was burnt. How do you differentiate between charred and burnt is open to interpretation. I finished neither apps so that is my litmus test. Next was Cacio e Pepe, pasta with cheese, pepper, and butter. The pepper was a little too strong in my opinion but I did finish it. If I had no references such as Rodi or Pepp & Delores here in the Cincinnati area, I might well have given a higher review. But given the excellent experiences with the others, the best I can give Enoteca Emilia is a so-so review.

    Wonderful New Year’s Eve date night with my wife. Ambiance was amazing and service was outstanding. We did the 4 course New Year’s Eve experience with the wine pairing-absolutely amazing. Food was out of this world, from starter to finish it is hard to decide which was our favorite. It was great we could both order different things and were able to share and taste multiple dishes.

    We were really looking forward to trying this new-to-us restaurant. Everyone was super-friendly, and the Brussels sprouts were awesome. Unfortunately, we were really disappointed in the bread (grilled so much that it tasted burnt), the Pollo (seared chicken with risotto) was really overpriced for the undercooked and underseasoned risotto and dried out chicken we received, and the four cheese pizza was overloaded with ricotta and had no flavor. We were told that there is a new chef, so it might get better in the future. We will not return, though :(.

    I had not been to Enoteca Emilia since it moved/reopened in Loveland, so was very excited to try again. The space is very lovely, nice and open. Our server was friendly and very knowledgeable. Due to a staff shortage there was a limited menu, but I was very grateful that we were called and told ahead of time and we still found some delicious items. I highly recommend the deviled eggs, octopus and the Cacio e Pepe.

    I understand that there is a shortage of workers, especially in this industry right now. However, this was not an issue of staffing. Our waitress seemed very frazzled the entire evening. We arrive to dinner and we were greeted in an appropriate time after being sat. I only wish the rest of the evening went this well. We each ordered a specialty cocktail from their menu, and they were severely underwhelming, to say the least. When she came back to check on us, we ordered (2) items as an appetizer: bread and brussel sprouts. A salad and (2) entrees, one being the most expensive one on the menu at $30. The brussels came out before the bread somehow, and we didn’t receive the bread for another 15 minutes. After someone else bringing yet another round of the exact same appetizer to our table after we had finished, we were confused and concerned about the organization of the staff and kitchen. She quickly realized that they weren’t meant for our table and proceeded to take them back to the kitchen. The appetizers weren’t bad and we were pleased with them. Our waitress comes back over and assured us that the food would be our shortly and proceeded to ask if I needed another cocktail. I said, “No, I’m alright for now. Thank you.” My girlfriend hadn’t even take more than 2 sips of hers, as she didn’t like it at all. This wasn’t even noticed the entire meal. At a rest of “this scale”, most servers would chime in with something like, “I see you haven’t finished much of your beverage. Do you like it? Is there something else I can get for you?”. Not the case here. She brings me another drink, after stating I didn’t want one, and assures us that our food would be out soon, again. This was after 75 minutes of us having been there in total. We’re noticing that multiple tables around us, some who had gotten there after us, were receiving their entrees, appetizers, better service, etc… Almost 2 hours, we finally have dinner. Cold food, $131 later, leaving highly upset.

    Menu limited Cocktail Small Osso Bucco way too salty, polenta was soupy and therefore unappetizing. Lamb shank itself was good. Grilled Rapini was very good. Gnocci Good. Menu missing some no meat italian options, dessert menu was underwhelming. I really wanted to love this place but they need to do some work on menu and quality control.
