We have been going to Emiliani's for many years. Often for a holiday, the chef offers only a special menu with very few selections. This Valentines Day there was a special menu, but it had many choices. Both entrees that we ordered were spectacular! The service was very good despite the large crowd of diners.

Returning from a day at Woodstock, we stopped in this locally recommended eatery in Saugerties and were more than pleased. The food, Wine and Service were exemplary. Parking adequate and the ambiance was splendid. When traveling in this area again, will surely stop by!

The cuisine was delicious and the drinks were very good. I noticed they had Caiperinha drinks on the menu and although they first had a confused look, they seemed to be obsessed with mixing one up. It turned out perfectly. One problem, though. I ordered the fried oysters for an appetizer (which I will freely admit was a mistake on... More

We were in the mood for Italian and this place hit the spot. The warm homemade bread was great and the meatballs tasted like my mom used to make. Definitely will be back!!

We used to enjoy this restaurant, but the last few visits were very disappointing. The final time, we had a dinner reservation with a friend to celebrate his birthday. We arrived a few minuted early and were told there would be a one hour wait. When we said we had a reservation, we were told, very rudely, that all the... More

To say that the meal at Emiliani was one of the best I've ever had is no exaggeration. This is a neighborhood restaurant; straight forward and non-pretentious. My wife had the chicken parm and I the chicken francese. Both were excellent and cooked to perfection. The pasta that comes with the entrees came with the traditional marinara sauce. My wife...

Highly recommended. Emiliani's is our "everyday go-to restaurant ", yet special enough for important celebrations.....Wonderful food, inviting atmosphere, great prices, friendly service, family friendly too.. From Chicken Cordon Blue and Grilled Salmon, to Chicken Parm, delicious pasta dishes and some of the tastiest soups ever. Every dish is a winner, served hot and fresh.
