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

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!
Definitely one of the best restaurants in Melbourne. Delicious authentic Italian food and great service. Highly recommended.
Food was amazing. Every plate was well thought-out and executed.
We had such a perfect night. Our waiter was wonderful and the food and wine, delicious. Thanks for a great night.
Authentic, delicate flavours. Would definitely return!
Beautiful food, tailored great service. A place we love to visit regularly and will be back!
Great Service, Great Food and the whole place made you feel like you were overseas in Italy itself.
We love coming to Emilio.
The following comments are not criticisms but rather ideas that you may find helpful.
The chef is first rate but there is just too much going on in each course that it is difficult to just taste the fresh food!
I found the seat too hard for the long degustacion menu.
We'll be back and have already recommended you to friends , who are now regulars.
Delicious - lovely setting
We had a great time at Trattoria! The dining experience was really enjoyable, service was great and the food amazing. We will definitely return and recommend the place to everyone!

Excellent service to compliment the chefs table menu well done guys thanks
The most amazing food and service I have ever received.
Lovely place, fantastic food, always enjoy coming back. 🙂
Really good classic Italian food, pasta was perfection and my stuffed calamari was delicious- great wine recommendation from waitress too.
Better than Tipo 00 and many other named Italian Restuarant’s in Melbourne.
We had the degustation @$85 per head which was wonderful. All courses so fresh and full of flavour. Tuna carpaccio was superb. The wait staff were exemplary and so friendly. Can’t wait to return.
Went to Trattoria Emilia,being an Italian always fussy when it comes to Italian food.This place was exceptional,the food was modern and delicious and the ambiance was so relaxing ,l would recommend it highly
Never disappoints!!! Amazing food. Tried anchovies entree for the 1st time and it was fantastic.
Lovely ambience and authentic Italian but a couple of dishes were just a little under expectations (which were high). While the fig and ricotta ravioli was outstanding, my partner’s spaghetti with lobster and bisque was very soupy and too wet for the pasta (just needed less bisque and more lobster). The affogato I had to finish was disappointing but the tiramisu was decadent and yummy. Service was smart and unobtrusive and overall a very enjoyable experience.
