Fodor's Review

Linen tablecloths and art deco–style artwork create a casual, elegant feel at this Gainesville institution serving Pan-Latin cuisine for more than 20 years. Dine indoors or beneath the stars at the sidewalk café. Start with the Gallician stew (a family recipe) or the black-bean soup, and then move on to one of the chef's signature dishes—Spanish saffron rice with shrimp, clams, mussels, fresh fish, chicken, artichoke hearts, peas, asparagus, and pimientos. Emiliano's

also offers an extensive tapas menu with nearly 40 items to mix and match, and tempting desserts like the original chipotle brownie cake. Live jazz fills the air Monday and Wednesday nights.
