What a pleasant surprise to find an awesome family-owned restaurant on my visit to Pittsburgh! The food was very high quality and you could actually have a nice conversation in the quaint dining room. So much better than the other chain options we had. Do yourself a favor and skip the corporate kitchen and go for some freshly cooked food... More

We arrived at noon, not crowded at all. The lady that waited on us (i'm assuming was Emilia) was lovely. We had the Aioli (spelling) pasta. It was great, lots of garlic and veggies. The atmosphere was like sitting in grandma's dining room for dinner. I would definitely recommend it. It's about 8 minutes from The Target on Freeport Rd... More

Good fresh cooked food. Family home atmosphere. Probably mismatched china etc., but cozy and good food. Like eating with family Large portions-good prices. Dinner has more upscale menu

If you didn't know this was a restaurant you would NEVER find it. It is a really no more than a house with tables in it. However, once you get served the food is outstanding. Only one server when I was there for lunch and guessing it was Emilia. A little slow but well worth the wait. Had the grilled... More

We were in the area (after 7 p.m. on a Saturday) and chose this restaurant based on the other reviews here on TripAdvisor. We were not sure what to expect when we drove up since the place looks more like a house, rather than a restaurant. We were asked if we had a reservation (we did not), but we were... More

So the location is a bit out of the way, the inside nothing special, but the food excellent. What a surprise treat to meet a friend for lunch @ Emilia's. Every thing that we ordered merits ordering a 2nd time. The pasta aioli, the soup du jour and the side salads were all very good and very healthy portions. But... More

Delightful dining experiences. Go there often, nice place to enjoy anything on the menu. Nice place for couples or small groups to meet. Make reservations as they do become very busy at times. We found weekdays best. Relaxed atmosphere and casual dress with fine food. BYOB is a great perk. We love the house salad dressing and portions are perfect.... More

We were a group of 10 for a Mother's Day celebration and they gave us one of the back rooms–a sort of private dining room. Our party included one of every known food preference - two teenage boys who only eat meat, a couple of vegetarians, middle aged experts on Italian food, and just ordinary folk. Everyone was pleased -... More

We were staying at a nearby hotel and saw the reviews for this so decided to try it. We're glad we did! It's always nice to not have to go to a chain restaurant when you're on a road trip. This place looks like it should be somebody's house , which makes it kind of fun and sort of like... More
