Great family restaurant, been there in 2015 and 2017. We tried the goat, the rabbit and the lamb, they're all really good, the kids were crazy 'bout it too. Nice atmosphere, fantastic view. We'll come back another time. :-)

Loved this place. The food was very good as well as the service. They had live music and everyone was super friendly. I will go back if I am in the area.

Emilia's is very hard to find as its out of the way, but the views are outstanding. The food is good but the portions are very small. We went (four adults and three kids) and in comparison to two years ago the portions have considerable...More

We were served as being friends of the family who owns this unique tavern. Between the mountains with spectacular view (but the sunset can only be seen from the back side of it). Few choices (mostly meat) but authentic quality. Prices are cheap. Recommend the...More
