Celebrating a special occasion? Book the whole table
It is no coincidence that my last name, Mesa, translates to “table.” I was born to be a host. Why are sit-down dinners so powerful? The underlying main ingredient is the community aspect. Every guest is a surprise. It tears down people’s perceptions of borders, allowing them to meet and “break bread” with different nationalities, races, genders, and socioeconomic backgrounds. The best way to make lasting memories, in a new city, is through a dinner party. **Please let me know if you have any food allergy/restrictions. **I only cook with fresh/seasonal ingredients.

What to expect at Emillio's place
TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
I booked Emillio for my birthday and I'm so incredibly thankful that I did. The entire evening was so magical, from start to finish. Emillio's home is welcoming, eclectic and elegant. From the moment you step into his space, you're welcomed with a warm smile and immediately feel a part of the family. Emillio truly went the extra mile to ensure that all the little details were there to make the evening special. From the welcome cocktail to the incredibly delicious empanadas, to the mouth watering meal itself, ending with a dreamy coconut cocktail (and some special cupcakes for my bday), the entire experience was perfect. All of my guests had an amazing time and I have Emillio to thank for a truly spectacular evening. I would recommend him many times over for any occasion and hope to do future dinners with him. Thank you thank you Emillio! xoxo
I celebrated my 29th birthday with a group of friends in Emillio's dinner. First of all, Emillio's place is absolutely gorgeous, and it's right next to Painted Ladies and Alamo Square too, what a prime location! His place is also filled with unique paintings and furniture pieces, and I love how colorful they are. Second of all, Emillio's hospitality is one of a kind. He greeted each one of us personally at the door as people dropped in one after another. We got to learn about his culture and experiences, and he has truly made my birthday dinner special. At the end of the dinner, he even gave me a denim jacket as a present! and the jacket fits me perfectly! If you looking for an authentic home dining experience, this is definitely a the spot that you don't wanna miss.
