Don't waste your money, the staff are disorganised, the order was wrong, also the gravy I thought was bisto granules - not good, there are other better restaurants in Durham, so do not waste your money!

I have been here on a few occasions, once at xmas with a big party (60+) and the service was still very good and the food was divine, I had the duck which was gorgeous. I have also been in smaller parties with family and food lovely every time

When this was truly Emilios as has new name now it was very good. Now a much more limited menu which should make the food better but it doesnt. Very average and better places to eat, try Zizzi or even a Pizza Express

My partner and I have often gone to this restaurant and always find it to be as lovely as the last time. The portions are large, the prices are great and thestaff are very helpful and friendly, always service with a smile. We would recommend Emilio's to anyone.

Disappointing meal in soulless surroundings. Shocked to find all pizza and pasta dishes costing around £10, the same as 'full' meals, when the going rate elsewhere is nearer the £6 mark. No bread, or breadsticks even, to nibble on while we waited. Grim red house wine. My tortellini alla crema (meat filled 'fresh' pasta with wild mushrooms and onions in... More

My wife and I dined at Emilios on a Sunday evening .We sent the soup back because it was very salty and unedible." My Chicken Emilio" was fairly poor for £11 50. All in all never on a Sunday
