Emilio’s Bay Harbor Island

After my first initial visit was impressive alone, I followed up with a few guests.
We went last night for dinner and were very pleased!
The food was great, good size portions and well prepared for the true tastes of Italy!
Our guests were very impressed that the manager, Romo came to the table to ask how things were and what we had ordered. He suggested a few wines to go with these entrees.
We enjoyed the wines and the attention from the staff and manager right up until the end.
The wine list is good for this type of dining, medium priced wine, great tasting for dinner.
The place was packed, a little back ground music might help to tone down the talking and make a great mood with the meal and wine. And on my way out... I made another reservation with Romo for this weekend, because soon you will be in line for this jewel.
Life's quality time, enjoy great food and wine with great friends at a great place!

I would like to pass on to those who enjoy great food and great service at a reasonable price.
Today, we are all looking for great value and enjoyment when dining out.
This GEM is is all about the diners enjoyment from the time you walk in.
Upon my first visit there, I was dining alone which is sometimes awkward. But as I sat at the bar looking over the wine list and menu ,I was greeted by Stephanie with complete knowledge of the menu and gave me some personal favorites that were delightful in taste and preperation. She made me feel very comfortable and was one step ahead of my requests. I enjoyed everything and was delighted with my check, amount...not stunned.
I must comment that I was also made very welcome by the general mangager, Romo who was very personable and helpful in choosing my dessert. By the time I was ready to go, I was already planning to make my reservations to bring my friends and family to enjoy this wonderful expierience. Easy to find, easy on the budget, and hard to beat!
