Bringing the flavors of Italy to your town

This isn't your typical Americanized Italian restaurant.

Our family has put Lil Emil's Italy on the map for serving...

  • Traditional Italian food like chicken alfredo
  • Made-from-scratch sauces that take hours to prepare
  • Tasty vegetarian options like meatless lasagna and fresh salads
Fresh tastes best, which is why we prepare most of our menu items the same day we serve them. In fact, we make our garlic bread at the time of the order, so it's always hot and fresh.

There's something for everyone at Lil Emil's Italy. View the Menu page now to explore your many options for gourmet dining.
