Always a good meal at Emilio's!
We arrived at 7:00 on a busy Saturday night, but since we had reservations so we got seated pretty quick. We waited no more than 10 mins. Overall food was very good and the chicken very tender and fresh tasting. Only thing that was a little disappointing was the bread basket that came was limited and pretty hard..definitely not their usual delicious mix of breads. Other than that, fine.

From the appetizer to the generous portion entree to the scrumptuous dessert, AWESOMELY DELICIOUS !!!!!

It was a last minute decision and I'm glad we decided to go. From the outside it looked to me like a typical Pizzaria but once I stepped in and was seated I knew I was about to experience some true Italian dining. The service was tremendous, the people were way too kind and the food that followed was just as good. I was very impressed that they were able to put together such elaborate dishes in what seemed to be a more casual setting. I now have a new local spot to go to.

Unbelievable Food, Awful Service
Just because you can cook doesn't mean you can manage a restaurant. We put up with the absurd overcrowding, absent host, and terribly slow service, because the food is that worth it. Seriously though, the homemade rigatoni makes you forget the incompetence of the staff (waiters and waitresses excluded) I'd love to try more of the menu but I don't have the patients to go too often and when I do all I can think about is the homemade rigatoni. Definitely go here, just have a few drinks before hand. And don't think reservations will help.

First time visit to Emilio's. Friday night and very busy. Well worth the wait as the food was great as well as the service. We will be going back soon.

Not your typical Pizzeria/Restauran
The food is better than average and the extensive menu has dishes that either you won't find at most pizzerias or have a slightly different twist to them. All in all a great place to eat.

In my opinion, this is the best Italian food on Long Island. We have been going there for close to 15 yrs and have never had a bad meal or piece of pizza. When we go to another Italian restaurant, we judge it by the food at Emilio's, but so far none compare. On this last visit on Fathers Day, we were six people and all the meals were great. The bread for the table is also delicious . Even the desserts, were great. If you enjoy Italian food, this restaurant is a must stop.

Always a pleasure
One of favorite spots! Food is always perfection. Our fav dishes include: Rigatoni Cremosa, Chicken Sinatra, The Crispo Salad and the Eggplant Rollatini. But we really haven't had anything we didn't like!

I got the Skinny Girl dinner with salmon which was delicious, but the portion of a special chicken dish was a little small... The hostess wasnt at the front but after a few minutes a waitress asked us if we needed help. It was very quiet for a Saturday though, which was a nice change!

Food always very good, service slow
The food here is always very good. The place is very popular, which leads to long waits for a table. Even with a reservation, people end up waiting a while for a table, as we did, and others we know. They also are slow with the service. Definitely not the place to go on a busy night when you have limited time like a movie afterwards) - odds are you won't get done in time. But if you are not in a rush and have some patience, the food is very good.

Great food, not-so-great service.
I made a reservation for 7pm at Emilio's this past Saturday. My party arrived a couple of minutes early and I was told that we'd be seated in a few minutes. We were not seated until 7:20 and the wait was a very crowded one as we were right next to the pizza orders. Once we were seated, it took a few minutes for our server to greet us and take drink orders as well. I love the food at Emilio's, they have an extensive menu and lots of great choices, but the service could be much, much better. But if service isn't that important to you, then definitely check out their food.

Good food, good service
We have been there a few times and the food and service are always good. Emilio's always seems to be busy but the service is wonderful.

Consistently good, varied food
You can always count on good food and service at Emilio's. Menu is very large with lots of choices, even for a vegetarian. Always leftovers to enjoy the next day.

Best Pizza and salad!
We live quite a distance away, but Emilio's remains our favorite place for pizza! We were there to celebrate a family member's birthday (who lives in that area).
We weren't too happy that they squished 5 adults into a booth while other tables in the back seemed available, but the delicious food made up for that ;)
Also, the waitress heard that it was a birthday, and was so sweet to bring out a small dish with biscotti and whipped cream and a candle!!

I grew up on LI, and just came back for the week with my husband who had never been to the island. The food was legit, the bread was amazing, my baked ziti was so good I literally ate it until I couldn't possibly take another bite. I even ate some of the Italian buffalo wings - and I hate wings usually - but I actually licked my fingers.
great spot, good prices, go get a table.

Great food...slow service
It just took forever to get everything at Emilio's on Friday. We had to ask for bread about 4 times, and our waiter kept apologizing, but it was ridiculous. Food is great...as usual.

I went to Emilio's for my birthday and had a wonderful experience. We had reservations but we still had to wait - not happy about this, although the place was very busy. The food is excellent, plenty of choices. We had Calamari, Eggplant Stack and Mussels for appetizers and they were delicious and completely finished. Everyone enjoyed their entrees too. I would definitely recommend having dinner at Emilio's and I would go back again too.

GREAT Italian Food
While walking in, I noticed that Emilio's must be the local place to go for pizza, because people were in and out picking up dinner. It was a pleasant surprise to see the dining area beautifully decorated for the winter holidays. All staff was polite and we didn't wait long for our orders. Their menu is huge! LITERALLY! Emilio's has a great selection of classic Italian food.
