We had no idea where to stop for an early dinner off the NYS Thruway on our way to Albany. Our GPS pointed us to Emiliani. What a fabulous find....we were greeted by owner Franco who is a great host and also was our waiter. My husband and I started with wine, then enjoyed the bruschetta appetizer followed by our...

The Veal Marsala was great! The veal was tender and plentiful. Their service was efficient and professional. I sat at the bar for dinner. The bartender was friendly and attentive. The overall experience was a pleasure.

Small family restaurant. We had very good service, 2 people served us and the food was very good. It was a Friday night, we did have reservations, and were seated quickly. A glass of white wine, a special cocktail, and two beers to start the night. The guys chose the Calamari Fra diavolo, with spicy marinara sauce. Friend had the... More

We were served badly over-cooked salmon and chicken that tasted spoiled. We sent both meals back. One of the owners (the wife) was combative when informed. The husband was apologetic, but it was too late. We were charged for the pasta and salad that came with the meals, and we are never going back.

Cozy, comfortable, intimate, charming, are just some of the adjectives that come to mind. This is by far one of my favorite eateries especially when it comes to a special occasion such as a B day, Valentine's Day, etc. Food is authentic, consistent and top notch! Service is spot on and have yet to be anything but ecstatic when dining... More

Resteraunt was mediocre. Was quoted a price over the phone for a special event and they tried to charge double. I spoke with someone in town and they agreed that this resteraunt does this to "out of towners". For this reason, its not recommended.

My husband and I recently were staying at diamond mills hotel in Saugerties, NY and saw this restaurant on our way there. Soo glad we went. Being Italian and considered a very good cook by family & friends, I admittedly am not easy to please when dining out! I could not find anything to complain about at this establishment! From...

Emiliani was a great experience. VERY good food, an excellent waitperson who guided us in making the best choices, nice wine list, yummy desserts. Plenty to take home to enjoy a second time also!! Veal parmesan was excellent.
