It is the perfect place to relax before or after a show, a Yankee game, a trip to the Bronx Zoo,
or a walk in New York Botanical Gardens.

best Italian food, homemade pasta,very attentive waiters,love the bread
Warmly welcomed and great service. Food was great. Loved the bread!
This is a family favorite! The portions are generous, the food is very good and the servers are friendly and work as a team. Emilia’s is great when you whole family is in town and everyone is up for a nice Italian feast!!
Dinner after going to NYBG train show. The food was excellent, the service was attentive but not over bearing . We sat near the front door and when patrons entered we got cold from the wind blowing inside.
They have a lovely garden in the back when the weather is warm.
Second time there and they did not fail us. Food was amazing with great service.
Good food nice people. Very enjoyable lunch. Would definitely go back.
Some of the most amiable and attentive servers I have encountered in a very long time. Italian comfort food served in a warm, welcoming setting.
What a great experience! The ambiance is warm and inviting. The service is excellent. Attentative.
Food is delicious. The zucchini flowers were delicious. My gnocchi and burrata were exceptional. Thank you for a great dining experience
Excellent. Appreciated the gluten free options. Never felt rushed. Very chic!
Excellent food, great service. Back patio was very enjoyable
The best never a bad experience
Warm and inviting. Treated like family. Food always well prepared with fair prices. Neighborhood gem
Emilias is my all time favorite Italian restaurant, and I live in Manhattan! Whenever I visit the Bronx Zoo which is about 6x’s per year or the Bronx Botanical Garden, I always walk over to Arthur Ave to enjoy a meal which is simply wonderful. The outdoor patio is one of the best in NYC and should not be passed up. All in all, restaurant experiences don’t get any better.
We enjoyed a wonderful meal to celebrate our son's 21st birthday. Emilia's went above and beyond and our table of 11 received excellent, attentive service.
A great old fashioned Italian American restaurant. The food and service were very good and made you feel like home.
Awesome experience one of my favorite restaurants on Arthur Avenue. Wonderful service, delicious food and a great ambience. Loved it.
We always enjoy their backyard patio. There was only one other table occupied. We started with the zucchini flowers stuffed with prosciutto and mozzarella. They were tasty but very oily. The house salad came without dressing. The bread was delicious and crusty and was served with shredded cheese and spicy herbs. The branzino was very delicious and the chicken Arthur Avenue was prepared with broccoli rabe and melted mozzarella and it was excellent. Pumpkin cheesecake was a wonderful dessert. I wish the restaurant served non alcoholic beer. The expresso martini was perfection!
Ate outside in their courtyard in the back of the restaurant. Quaint and away from the hubbub of Arthur Avenue. Food and service were wonderful. Will be back.
We had reservations and our table was ready. Servers were very attentive. Food was delicious. Kid friendly. Only negative is parking. Give yourself time to find a spot.
Nice wine list. It was our third time there.
Excellent service and ambiance! Great sangria!
Great Meal, Classic Arthur Av experience.
Great for special occasions, Great for any occasion, really!
Delicious pasta, great drinks and desserts! Waiter was super busy and very nice
We ate there a few years ago. We tried IT AGAIN, ns we were not disappointed. The food wine bread and dessert was amazing. Enjoyed it. I wish i lived closer so I could visit more often
Walked from Fordham campus, staff very friendly & food was excellent! Loved the homemade pasta!
We specifically reserved an outside table, but they tried to seat us inside, right at the front door. Outside there was an incredibly loud street fair going on. Once we were seated in the patio, all was great. Just a bit tacky, at first.
After a beautiful day at the New York Botanical Garden, we ate at Emilia's Restaurant. Dinner was delicious. I rarely eat pasta anymore (because it makes me fat), but I feel if I'm going to eat it, I want to eat the best. Emilia's was the best. The service was excellent. The next time I go to Arthur Avenue, I'll definitely be eating at Emilia's Restaurant.
Thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant that we chose on our NY trip to drop our son at college!
Wonderful food in a gracious dining room with excellent service.
Waiter Claudio was professional
The food is undeniably the best on Arthur Avenue. We only had appetizers this time because we wanted to have time to walk around before the shops closed, but next time I will order apps and entrees as well which are amazing! The owners are family and they treat you like family. Our server was just a tad on the slow side in checking on us, but we were socializing and relaxing after our 7 mile walk at the NY Botanical Gardens so it was fine. I highly recommend Emilia's as the best restaurant on the avenue!! Go and enjoy it!!
Good was ok. Stuffed artichoke was dry.
Had a large family gathering event there. The service and food were great. Everything ordered arrived on time and was delicious. Highly recommend when visiting Arthur Avenue
Excellent second time around. Espressotini is delicious. Manager is very personable and makes sure you are comfortable.
The food and ambiance was great but the service was not. My daughter and I constantly waited long periods for our waiter to attend us.
Amazing food . We will definitely be back!
Overall food was excellent. I would highly recommend the Chicken Dishes. I had chicken Arthur Ave and it was excellent.
Appetizers were great as well
Delicious & unusual pasta, heavenly short ribs , super service, clams oregenata disappointed.
I will keep on going back to Emilia’s.
I thoroughly enjoy eating there.
Fabulous dinner after the Bronx Zoo for my family of 7 adults & 3 little ones. The back patio was the perfect setting for our big group and the food and service was great! Will definitely return!
