Experience doesn't match the hype. Very poor service. Average food. Perhaps there is a reason why there were not many people in here.

The food to me was not good. We were a party of nine and all got different things. Only two people actually liked what they got. The service was very slow and the waiter was not very friendly. The atmosphere was really nice but I'll...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
