Great Italian food in a quirky location. What's not to love?
Unfortunately it did not live up to my previous experiences: the food was ok but the service was very poor. There was no sense of being welcomed, we waited a long time to order a glass of wine, the waiter was rather brusque and our food order was lost. Overall it was disappointing
Felt like I was back in Italy. Wonderful.
Just an amazing culinary experience with matching wines. We did the 5 courses chef degustation and the dishes were all very tasty and full of flavour. Seasonal and fresh ingredients were used and the service was just on point with the wine matching and the attention to details. Highly reccommended for a group or a date dinner.
Delicious meal, good value at 3 courses for $75 per person. Friendly, efficient service in an atmospheric room.
Wonderful food, service and atmosphere Great place to eat
Beautiful food, terrific wine list, and great service.
We first visited this place 11 years ago when we first arrived as young professionals in Melbourne, went back as a family It was amazing, very accomodating for young family, great ambiance and food was to die for
Fantastic night doing the $95 5 course degustation (with truffle!). Accommodated dietary requirements well ensuring no one felt left out.
Trattoria Emilia was everything we hoped for and more - incredible, authentic northern italian food, sensational wine, service that was second to none (thanks Frederica - superb!)! I love the space and atmosphere and I will definitely be back again!
We had a really wonderful experience for a very special occasion. The prearrangements some special plans were easy to make the the team was very accommodating. The food and wine matching was nothing short of spectacular and the service was second to none! My thanks to the Trattoria Emillia staff for making this such a memorable night!!
A great place to experience authentic Italian cuisine from the Emilia Romagna region. Great food, lovely wine and friendly and accommodating staff. Would definitely go back!
The food was delicious. Very Northern Italy. No tomato or chilli.
So good to come back and sample the fabulous food and hospitality
Hadn't been here is ages due to Covid restrictions and very nice to return. The food was excellent. I had the artichokes with chili mayo and the marvellous bone marrow, veal tartare with black truffles. Service was polished and friendly but they could have used an additional waitperson as they were really pressed. Unfortunately good help is hard to find these days. But this is not a criticism, particularly as I love to dine slowly. I'll be back asap.
Its absolutely fabulous. I felt like I was in the middle of Rome!!!!
Amazing experience. Great food and great wine!
Gnocco with Smallgoods and the Tortelli with the balsamic vinegar from Modena are excellent
Lovely staff and delicious food. Would definitely eat here again.
Perfect Saturday night out with my husband. Food was incredible. The memory of this night had made me happy every day since! Grazie!
Lara’s birthday !!!
Beautiful food & service
Tuto perfecto !!!
Overall we enjoyed the evening and the overall ambience was congenial
Every course was simply delicious! I'll be going back again.
It was wonderful.
The whole family loved it.
We will be back.
The must have three course meal for $75 a head on a Saturday evening was not good value. There was very little choice and the main was lacking and the dessert was tiny.
Best dinner we have ever had in Melbourne. We had a 5 course chefs menu and it was bloody incredible. Emilia is our go-to restaurant, we have eaten there heaps of time and this occasion was by far the most incredible!
An amazing menu and fabulous service.
Great food, excellent service
Everything about this restaurant is exceptional
The food was excellent had great birthday the wines also
Amazing 5 course meal with great variety and ample amount of food!
Absolutely flavourful food, well presented and excellent service
Very enjoyable evening, food was delicious and the service was fantastic - our waiter couldn't have been more helpful and at tentative - highly recommended
Fantastic food and fantastic service. Really nice vibe, one of my favourite Italian restaurants in Melbourne
Always good service and the food is excellent
authentic and great italian food.
lovely atmosphere and very friendly staff. good wine list also.
We came here by recommendation from friends and were extremely delighted from start to finish, the staff were excellent, fun and happy, the food was delicious and a small menu which was so easy to choose from but offered everything u could want, a delight to dine there and will be back !!
Outstanding. We had not heard of Trattoria Emilia before and found the restaurant through a search of top restaurants. What a find. This is my new favourite. Back to what restaurants should be. It’s a smaller restaurant which I loved. It adds to the ambience and the feeling of personal service. Speaking of service - could not fault this. The staff are clearly passionate about what they do. Then there is the food - amazing. We shared 2 entrees, 2 mains and 2 desserts between the two of us as we wanted to try as much as possible. Will definitely be back.
Best Italian we had ever eaten! The whole experience was just what we wanted for our celebration :)
Sevice was excellent , friendly & informative waiter, busy but made to to chat.
Food was very good, a large drink menu & good wine list.
We did the Chef’s Choice tasting menu which is highly recommended! Absolutely everything was top-level, but in particular the ravioli and scallops were sensational. A total must!
