'Emilio's is a real hometown favorite among locals who stop in for a quick slice of pizza to go, or to sit at one of the high-top tables in the dining room and enjoy freshly prepared dishes like fried calamari, eggplant rolatini, and grilled chicken parmigiana. ' -Commack Patch

Food quality did not seem as good as the last time we were there. Food came out cold and when they reheated it they overdid it and overall quality did not match up what we expected

I don’t know why I bothered to make a reservation since there was no one at the hostess stand, went to counter and told them I have a reservation and I was told to wait in line with everyone else who did not have reservations.

Once seated waitstaff was attentive and food was good, but a little overpriced.

Service was an issue. Appetizers took way too long to come out, and due to delay, meals were brought out right on top of appetizers. Our server was apologetic, and brought a pitcher of soda for my kids because their glasses were 95 percent filled with ice and there are no refills for drinks, which meant charging us again, which is ridiculous. It also seemed that our server was engaged in some type of conflict with other employees, as we overheard several arguments. Upon receiving our check, we noticed a $9.00 fee, if we paid with a credit card. I have NEVER seen anything like that at a restaurant before, and it is completely unacceptable. I understand that restaurant owners are charged service fees for credit cards, but that fee should NOT fall on the family paying 300 dollars for dinner for 7 people! Most of the meals were good, however, overpriced. 24.95 for gnocchi??? $12 for a slice of lava cake? Seeing as this restaurant has had very bad press in recent months, I would think that the owner would do everything he can to do right by the customers. We have been there before, prior to the “incident” that made the news, and figured we would not hold judgement and return. I now know that we will not return again.

Overbooked. Waited 45 mins even though we had a reservation. Sad to witness the decline of a once great establishment.
Time to find another gem.

It was given to us on a gift card and we have been here many times before. Everything was great and due to COVID not crowded and quiet for a Sunday night. Only complaint was that open table directs you to a very old menu which by the restaurant should be changed to the correct one,

The first visit to Emilios was slightly rushed as we had arrived at 9pm while they were winding down but the staff was still relatively accommodating & graciously seated us.
I decided this wouldn’t have been the best time to judge this place so we went back the following day for brunch and boy was I happy I had made that executive decision!!
The staff was much more welcoming and the food was absolutely scrumptious!! As much as I wanted to hate this place I couldn’t... it’s truly found it’s way into our hearts.
UPDATE: I’ve been back 3 separate times since my initial visit and it Emilios just keeps getting better & better!!

Quality of food has definitely declined. Brocolli rabe was tasteless and Sardinia not as flavorful as in the past. Maybe it has changed owners. Will not be going back anytime soon

Friday night the service was so slow , and they forget my brothers soup. Each persons meal came out about 15 mins after the other that one was done before another got a meal .

Not that busy on a Saturday night- plenty of open tables so there should not be an excuse. Plenty of staff working. The food was just ok. The service was terrible. It took 20 minutes for the waiter to take our order and 35 minutes to get our entrees. No free refills on soda (who does that anymore?) On the flip side, the bartender is great. Personable and knowledgeable. Excellent service at the bar only.

Food was excellent. I really have no complaints. Only had a slight issue with dessert. I ordered cheesecake with berries. When I got it, there were no berries. I questioned it and the waitress said they didn't have any. I should Of been told before she served it. I would of picked a different dessert.

Love Emilios. I go all the time. But I was super disappointed because I finally convinced my brother and his gf to go to Emilios and eat outside. We got there and stood inside for 10 minutes waiting for our reservation (we wanted outside dining so we wouldn’t be indoors), and then we waited for our food for over an hr. Waitress barely came over. We had to ask for more bread and water since we waited so long we had none left. I don’t know what happened that our food took so long but we received no explanation. I will continue to go back bc I love their food but unfortunately my brother and his gf said they won’t be returning 😕

Was able to have dinner outside. Area was just ok. Tables were on a slant due to uneven pavement with napkins under table legs to keep tables from moving. Tent should of had more outdoor plants and decorations to enhance outdoor dining experience. Outdoor dining was not an enjoyable experience to have a meal. Would not go back to outdoor dining. Service and food was good.

The food was delicious but the service was slow. It took awhile to get a menu and then to get someone to take our order. The waiter was very pleasant but I think he was overburdened with too many customers. It also took awhile for the food to come out.

As always, Emilio’s never disappoints us. Due to Covid19 the restaurant closed earlier than we anticipated but it was my birthday and they still seated us. In the end we ended up the only people in the restaurant. Had our own Tony Soprano moment. Made me feel really special for my bday during this pandemic and during Hurricane Isaias. Thank you Emilio’s!
