We went out of our way to go here. It was difficult to find. We almost left the area thinking the restaurant wasn’t there anymore. We finally saw an obscure and faded sign Thales us in, but even then we were unsure it was open....More

Stopped in Emilio’s while on a walking tour and had a very nice quiet lunch. Italian wedding soup was perfect and the cannelloni was good. Would definitely come back and try the dinner menu

The service and the food are both wonderful. The first-floor dining room is very elegant and it's one of the few places in town where you can have a quiet conversation while dining. I can recommend the lamb, the butternut squash ravioli, the chicken alla...More
