'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

The food at Emilio's is okay...rarely good and never bad. They have reduced the portion sizes. For years we have shared a large caesar salad, but last night it was not enough for two servings.
Our biggest problem with the place is the glass of grated parmesan cheese that has been used by other tables. The health department should look into that.

I always enjoy the food at this establishment. The service is just ok. I refuse to order pizza or take out at the counter because the people who work behind the counter are extremely rude.
The hostess for dine-in seating stands at her post with a nasty face and acts as if she’s doing you a favor. During this last visit specifically, we waited almost 40 minutes past our reservation time. We had drinks, dinner and desert finished within one hour. We paid our check and within 5 minutes she walked over to our table and said, “How did everything come out for you?” As if to say, “You can leave now.” That was completely uncalled for and not appreciated. We were just getting ready to leave. There was no one waiting for a table and two empty tables right next to us. It left me with a sour taste in my mouth. I never overstay my welcome in a restaurant.

We were there for a birthday lunch. We requested a booth in the back since we can get rather noisy
and stay a while. Our waitress, Kelly, was excellent. The food was good as usual. This is our traditional
place to come for birthday lunches and we are never disappointed.

Been going here for years. Food is outstanding, some of the best around and I would even say better than most so called finer restaurants. The Sicilian pizza is phenomenal as well.

I was so happy that they were able to replace my pasta with zucchini noodles. I can’t tell you how excited I was to know I can do that

The restaurant was decent. We had been wanting to try it for several years and never did because of its location. We finally tried it out and was somewhat disappointed with the experience. The bread with the ricotta was probably the best thing about the meal. The kids pizza was fine, but my chicken scarpiello had chicken that was so tough and crunchy, it was gag inducing. The sausage wasn’t all that great either. My wife had the pasta with the sausage and shrimp and that was pretty good. My in-laws had pasta with shrimp in an Alfredo sauce and said it tasted better the day after. I could have said something to the waiter, but I changed it up to that odd piece of chicken you sometimes get.

Emilio's is one of my favorite restaurants
But the last visit was definitely and Off night

I made reservations and even though the restaurant was not crowded we were seated in the back by the bar and forgotten.

We asked to be moved and were moved.

They did not have the bourbon my friend ordered
They said they did not have the Tangaray gin my other friend ordered but later found it upstairs.
My Pinio Grigio was not good and the second glass tasted like it was left out and not refrigerated (I used to tend bar)
Their service was slow and we had to ask for a second drink
I even asked if it was under new ownership
But I am happy to say the beet salad was as excellent as always

Emilio’s is cutting back. Used to love coming here but not sure I would run back. Service was so-so, costs have increased, even the bread was stale and measly. Too bad.

The food and service was excellent. However, the wait to check in was very long. They could not find the reservation. This caused further delay. Reservationist said she would seat us but they could not find our reservation even though I showed it to her on my phone. This issue needs addressing.

Food is always great. Love this place. But our server who we’ve had before was non attentive. Three times we had to enlist other servers to get us water bread drinks. If this was my first time here I wouldn’t come back but I love their food
