I am not crazy about Italian cuisine, but this restaurant is a wonderful exception in my list. Family running, very thoughtful service, great kitchen, perfect food. The tiramisu was simply phenomenal, i should admit. Will go back again when in town.

This place is a family restaurant and they will make you feel right at home. The owner Albina takes time to greet each guest and chat and create a welcoming atmosphere. The food... More

We spent a lovely August evening here. The atmosphere was cozy and the family will welcome you warmly. I had the pasta duo which was fantastic. Everyone at our table were pleased with their choices as well. The Table d'hote included a starter and a very nice selection of desserts, which are made in house. I had the chocolate mousse... More

It had been several years since we ate at Esmeralda- it was a favorite place of my father's so going there is a bit of a pilgrimage for me. It can be hard to relive fond memories but not much has changed at this restaurant over the years which is a good thing! It serves an extensive and traditional Italian... More

The meals were lovingly prepared with attention to the presentation of each dish. The menu is varied and each dish that was sampled was delicious! All the desserts are homemade... More
