Family run restaurant 46 years in a row. Very good service, calm and with good execution. Clearly explain everything to you in English if needed. The food is EXCELLENT - well made, always hot and made with care. This is like going to a chef friend's house and eating at their home.

My family and I ate at Da Emilio on the last night of an 9 day vacation in Rome. I decided to give Da Emilio a try due to its proximity to the apartment we were staying at.

We'd arrived in Rome from Australia five hours earlier, and this local trattoria was recommended by our hotel, the Palm Gallery. When we arrived about 6:45pm, it was almost empty - within 30 mins it was full of local Italians and the place was buzzing. Two main courses, two deserts, bread, sparkling water, palate cleansers and a house white wine... More

What a wonderful place for dinner. The food was amazing, especially the artichoke fettuccine. Service was impeccable yet friendly. The house red wine was not the usual plonk. Highly recommend this place to experience Rome.
