A great place for authentic Italian cuisine. The atmosphere was very rich, putting off a fancy vibe. The food was fantastic, and flavor packed but I will tell you the menu was somewhat difficult for someone who does not know basic Italian. Not knowing what...More

I love Emilio's! For a quiet, elegant, and delicious Italian meal, it is our first choice in Staunton. Situated in what was originally a men's store, complete with lovely wood cabinetry and a large central stairway leading to the mezzanine, the atmosphere is very different...More

I had manicotti and my wife had ravioli. Took a while, but preparing it fresh takes a while. Food was good, waitress was very nice, price was reasonable. Would have given a 5, but smoke drifted down from floors above and was unpleasant.

I have come to Emilio's several time and am never disappointed. I have had several of their entrees - but my favorite is canneloni. Love the rooftop bar - great martinis.

Honestly, one of the most frustrating and disappointing experiences I have had dining out in a long time. The wait staff was completely off. her game....she almost reminded me of Ursula from Mad About You. Honestly, if there is one other patron in the house,...More

No dress code but I do advise you to not go too casual in the evening hours. My husband and I stopped here for a quick bite to eat after a very long day, and the mood called for more than casual clothes. That was clear when... More
