In this place they always treat me like a special customer. They know what I like. The meat and cheese platters are amazing. Authentic healthy Italian food reasonably priced!
Gorgeous cheese and meats in here . Not too expensive either. €12 for 4 different cheeses with jams and bread. They also do a lovely beef with olive oil and pepper topped with artichoke and Parmesan. A Bellini was only €6 so quite a bargain all round. Was a bit cramped though with quite a bit of shuffling going on.
Honestly I am in love of this place and its quality! everyone has to go and try it out!
I was a bit underwhelmed - maybe I just ordered the wrong thing, or I'm not that much in love with charcuterie. I had one of their bruschetta and really I just felt like I was getting an expensive cheese toastie. I think their nearest comparison is the like of Dunne and Crescenzi which is superior.
It was fine, but I didn't think it was more than fine.
Nothing better than lazing on a Sunday afternoon, its too late for an afternoon coffee but too early for after dinner drinks, but it's a nice day and you feel like a drink so what shall one do in this moment? Get your friends and get down to Taste of Emilia, if the sun is out take one of the tables outside, order some Campari and enjoy your afternoon!
We haven't been there in a while but last Sunday just proved us why we should start going there again more often.
Its this cozy and kinda holiday get away feeling which surrounds this place, while sipping your drink the staff offers you some crisps on the house.
After enjoying those its mostly impossible not to go for a second Campari which is totally reasonable as its only about 3€ a glass ;)
Oh a wet grey Sunday this piece of the Mediterranean lifted my spirits no ends.
The interior is simple but warm and homely. I love the cured meats that they have hanging from behind the counter, you can also order them to go.
I got the Modena which is cooked ham, cheese & grilled artichoke. I opted for it as a wrap, i forget the actual term for the wrap but it was more like a crepe material, it was absolutely delicious. Cost was €5.50.
Service was friendly and fast, I definitely would recommend it as a lunch spot.
I walked into this place by chance the first week they opened and have been returning regularly since.
The atmosphere in this place is buzzing and the staff are friendly and welcoming.
The food is really tasty and great value. It's perfect if you don't want a meal but nibbles with friends.
This is where I was introduced to a "Spritz", an Italian aperitif that uses Aperol and Prosecco. Now I can't visit this place without having one - gorgeous.
I love the atmosphere of a cafe in which the staff actually like their jobs and each other. It's so refreshing to be greeted by a smile and a bit of friendly banter. Even better when they make you feel as though they've invited you into their living room.
Taste of Emilia invited me to spend a half hour or so in the living room that is this cosy little cafe/bar/restaurant. I could have sat there all afternoon, soaking up the chilled out vibes and merriment of the group of charming people who work here.
Authentic Italian fare is the pride and joy of this establishment, and from what I could gather last Friday afternoon, the majority of the workers are Italian also. The cafe has a distinctly Italian feel to it, many of the customers are Italian (so it must be good), and while I was there a handsome man pulled up outside on his vespa... Bellissimo! A slice of Italy without the language barrier.
My mission that afternoon was coffee, but the 5 euro glasses of prosecco and wonderful looking antipasto platters almost tempted me into staying on for dinner.
Taste of Emilia would be the perfect place to begin an evening on the town - my girlfriends and I are going to sample the prosecco and platters very soon indeed.
Ive been to Italy many times, and have Italians in my family and this is the closest place to a true Italy cafe/restaurant I have seen in Dublin. Its all about your glass of prosecco and a sharing board of cured meats, cut to order, with delicious olive oils, olives and bread.
It only has a few tables which gives it a real authentic and homely feel.
I recommend the aperol spritz! True Italian decadence.
Just a quick note to voice my appreciation of this wonderful hotspot. It's quickly becoming the place to go Saturday night for wine and Italian apperitifs.
The manageress really adds some spunk to this venue. She's Irish but has a great grasp of Italian culture. She'll joke with customers and whizz around the place, dishing up bruschetta and salami.
The food here is so tasty. I ordered the large parma meat plate and it was enough to fill the gap.
There was a great energy in Taste of Emilia, dances tunes inside and lots of laughter and carrousing outside.
Except for one drunk looking for attention outside, the night went off without a hitch.
I guess that fact that Taste of Emilia is always full of Italian expats should be a clue to everyone else as to how good it is.
Delicious panini, tagliere, wines by the glass and bottle, and all manner of sauces, pastas, etc to take home with you.
The service is welcoming and professional, and while sometimes it might take a bit longer for your food to come out, you know that it's being prepared with lots of care.
I suggest the Rimini (ham with artichoke paste)... but most everything is good!
My favourites here: Spritz, of course, and Tagliere Trentino!
This is one of my favourite places to go for lunch when I'm in town. The staff are all lovely and the food is all authentic Italian, such as meat and cheese plates served with bread. I have never seen it empty and it seems to attract Italians , which to me is a good sign about the food!
Love it here! Super friendly satff-really down to earth and always take time to chat (even when they are super busy!) THE MOST AMAZING PROSECCO-ever ever ever!!!!!!! And the appetiser thingys (not sure of name) are to die for! can be difficult to find a seat but aside from that is perfect!
looks like a bit of a deli, a bit of a restaurant or cafe. tried a glass of red wine. it was nice but not outstanding. also tried one of their bruschettas which was nice but just tasted like a pizza with a sort of big slice of bread for a crust. i've had very nice bruschettas before which had very fresh tomatoes on top, not just pizza sauce. their sliced meat dishes did however look quite good. next time i'll try their coffee. the staff and service is good and the place is quite small but gives it a nice cozy atmosphere.
