This is a family owned restaurant that we have been going to for years. The staff is great, and Franco (Sr) at the bar mixes perfect (and generous) drinks. Franco (Jr) in the kitchen does a fantastic job of preparing traditional and contemporary Italian dishes. There are usually specials every day, which are always worth a try. They are consistently...

I have visited this restaurant many times over the years and I always feel welcome whenever we visit. The owner greets you and continues to have traditional good Italian cuisine at reasonable prices. He tries to be more traditional and classical with his decor and service. I highly recommend a visit for people who enjoy sitting down to a good... More

This is just a quick note to give high praise to Emiliani Ristorante. The dining area was cozy, but tables were sufficiently spaced, so that we had plenty of privacy. The atmosphere was quiet and peaceful, although the tables were all filled---no loud music or clattering dishes. Service was excellent and friendly. There was a principal waiter, but if any... More

My family and I were in town for a long weekend. Our first night there, we asked our 4 year old daughter what she wanted for dinner- she said "spaghetti". We passed this restaurant and decided to pull in and give it a try. We are so glad we did! Food was delicious!

The place is not fancy but the food is really good. Great pastas, salads, mussels, beer. It would be my second choice in Saugerties (The Red Onion being the first one, with a more sophisticated place and food) but I would come back for sure!

We went here for our anniversary while staying at the Diamond Mills Hotel. It was a wonderful meal prepared in true Italian style. I would recommend this place to anyone who is driving near saugertis on the thruway around dinner. It was not very full so I don't know if that would impact service on a weekend.

We have been to Emiliani Ristorante twice in summer of 2012. The main attraction of the place was the midway location between our house and that of our friends. I thought the food was lackluster (pasta alfredo, if I recall) although my companions were a slight bit more enthusiastic. The atmosphere was "worn", not caring too much about providing a... More

The food is good and if you can ignore the smell of old and musty carpet I would have enjoyed my meal. It seems a new carpet or even hardwood floors is a small price to pay when this would make it a more pleasant dining experience and attract more customers. Upgrade please. No one wants to have the smell... More

I was driving on 87 and got off an exist to find somewhere for dinner and stumbled onto this place. The food was good, we had the stuffed mushrooms appetizer (they were good) , the Chicken Pizzaiola (very yummy) and the Shrimp scampi (shrimp were cooked well, but the sauce was a bit sweet, which was weird for a scampi)....
