Pasta e Fagioli
Chicken breast crusted in parmesan over spinach in a brandi touch of cream
Had an amazing experience overall! Service and food were absolutely delicious. Will definetely be going back.
Fabulous restaurant with friendly and helpful servers! Local gem we found when we were in from out of state. Would recommend highly. We ate there twice in three days because we had such a great experience!
We dined outside under a tent. Sides were able to close to block our table from the elements. Food delicious and service great. Very accommodating.
We love this place. It is a staple for occasions and even just date nights. Food is fabulous and service is outstanding. Very proud staff that wants to impress and they do every time.
Superb food and warm attentive service. Beautiful interior.
Excellent food and great service. Our visit was delightful.
The amount of people in the room we were in was a little disconcerting. It was hard to tell if the tables were 6ft away from each other. The food was good except the chicken parm was overcooked and the cheese was burnt, making it hard to cut, which should never happen in a chicken cutlet pounded so thin (which I like the thinness, just not the overcooking).
Excellent food, friendly and welcoming staff, great service...one of our all time favorites.
Always a great dinner and drinks here. Andy and his staff treat us like family each time we visit. Save room for the dessert cart selections !
The food was incredible, was like eating straight from someone’s home cooking. We had the pasta arrabiata and the Valentine’s Day special ravioli with vodka sauce. Everything from the food, the service, the picture taking skills of the waiter (he even gave us a Polaroid picture of us) was exquisite.
Best place ever! Food is amazing
Really beautiful decor. I felt like I was in Italy. The service was very friendly and accommodating. My husband and I shared the eggplant appetizer, which was delicious. I had the chicken special for that night, which was excellent, and my husband had the veal, which he said was delicious. We shared a tartufo for dessert, which was delicious. We really enjoyed our meal at Cafe Emilia.
Perfect evening with fantastic food and service
Andy and his staff never disappoint. Great meal...great drinks... great atmosphere!!! Best in the area
From the moment we walked in to the moment we left , nothing but Amazing.The welcoming and professional staff. The perfectly prepared food with the perfect amount of an amazing red sauce'. Everything about this place leaves you with a desire to return. Thank you to all for an enjoying evening.
Dinner was ok but not what was expected, especially for the price of meals. We had an early dinner and were seated in the side room which is either frigid (winter time now) or when they put the heat on, sweltering. There was no in between and the tables were way too close in the times of Covid. I wish we were seated in the main dining room where it was definitely roomier (especially when we had a reservation and no one was there). The food was ok but nothing spectacular. I was disappointed as they brought around the dessert cart. I saw the cart when we entered the restaurant and assumed it was just for show. I then saw that's where they are serving dessert from which is kind of gross when you think of the amount of people who are breathing near it and just sitting in the front of a restaurant all day, nevermind that it's likely also not Covid recommended to have food sitting out in front of everyone and serve from it.
Food and service were very good. The wine list is overpriced. Noise level was surprisingly high in the room we were in. Needs something on the walls to deaden the sound. I would go back for the food and nurse a glass of wine through the meal.
Delicious meal with outstanding service. I’ll definitely dine here again.
Fantastic food, ambience and management. Highly recommend.
Amazing food! I had the fra Diablo shrimp and I asked them to skip the “hot” lol and they were so accommodating.. the best red sauce I have had in a long time!!yum! great house cab ... meant to ask them what it was... next time ... very friendly and welcoming!!! Highly recommend...
Great food in a comfortable atmosphere. Service was very attentive. Very good selection of wines. Specials are very inventive. My double it veal chop was very good and cooked to perfection. Will return when in area again
Absolutely breath takeing for a seconed I thought I was in france
We had a great meal. The pumkin ravoli was delicious. They made a pasta dish for my dish which he enjoyed. Bread was great too. Love the atmosphere.
Superb food served at proper temperature. A very special place.
My husband and I go often. The staff makes the experience a pleasure every time. The manager makes extra effort to remember names, details and always has a kind word. The food is very good and they are always open to input, as my husband is a picky eater. We have brought family and friends and each experience always makes everyone feels like family. Yes, the food is very good and the atmosphere is lovely...but it is the staff that separates this place apart from anywhere else.
Always great food and service. Gnocchi, veal and chicken with all amazing sauces! Never had dessert here but OMG, the coconut cake and Napoleon cake was to die for!
Delicious as always!
Nice place. Food good (although angel hair I had with my shrimp was really oversauced heavily)
Lovely warm inviting ambiance. Consistently excellent and fresh food. Very personal and friendly service. I highly recommend.
Our absolute favorite
Everything was great
Always 5-star service and 5-star food!
Food and service were excellent as always, You can't beat their veal parm on a bone, don't even need a knife to cut the veal it is so soft!!!
Had a great night out. Andy met us at the door and made sure we were well taken care of throughout our meal! Service was fantastic above and beyond! We ate dinner outside in the tent but were warm and cozy through the meal despite the low 50’s temperature outside. The food was delicious. We had the monk fish special and chicken in wine wine with artichokes. We took desert to go and that was yummy as well. Thank you Andy as always to a wonderful dining experience!
I have been there before but it has been awhile. As always everything was excellent!
I stopped working in the Bridgewater area 15 years ago, and I had not visited Cafe Emilia in that long because I live an hour away out of state. I chose it as a convenient and familiar location to meet a NJ friend for lunch and celebrate her birthday, and it was fantastic! Frank Sinatra welcomed us into the cozy atmosphere (tables are safely situated for social distancing). We started with the delicious tricolore salad and could not resist the hearty bread (with savory olive oil for dipping). Our entrees, the Pollo Alexandre and Vitello Natale, were so good we had to intentionally stop ourselves from polishing them off in order to have room for dessert. Our journeys ended with cappuccino and pumpkin cheesecake for her and coffee and the mixed berry tart for me. The cheesecake was flavorful and creamy without being over-sweetened (American desserts always have too much sugar!). The tart was an amazing blend of sweet and tangy berries (including what had to be currants and wild blueberries) on creamy custard...divine! We have already agreed that this is now our go-to place for future celebrations. Like fine wine, Cafe Emilia's excellence continues with age.
Great wine list, excellent service, very personal feel. Good is awesome.
Best place ever! Great food and great staff
