I currently work in SF and dine at Emmy's regularly. I enjoy there spaghetti because they make it really tasty by cooking it hot. The flavor is better than several other big name spaghetti places and I won't include them here. I have gotten to...More

Been to Emmy's multiple times and keep coming back when I need a spaghetti and meatballs fix. They certainly know what they are doing here! Classic comfort food. Everything about the place is SF Mission funky. Colors. The menu makes your eyes water. Music.

Dinner at Emmy's was delicious. The spaghetti and meatballs were the best I've had since my Italian Aunt from New Jersey used to make it for me. My husband ordered the Orecchiette. It was just as delicious. The place was very busy with lots of...More
