What Insiders Are Saying
Emporio is an Italian place in Soho, but it isn’t trendy. It’s just a solid place to get pasta with a group.
I have been here 2-3 times and all great, but this time not so much. Very slow service and the food was not as good as I remember being before. Not sure if there was a change in ownership or staff... hoping it was just one bad day.
Fantastic food and helpful staff. Great value for monet. Unfortunately we were seated in the inner section where the noise was very high. Thus, it was difficult to talk and impossible to have a conversation with my son who use hearing aid.
Very slow service. The restaurant was almost empty but it took them 45 minutes to get our order and almost one hour for my hamburger to come. Definitely not coming back.
My husband and I love the food here! They make the pastas fresh and ingredients always seem high quality. It’s our favorite date night spot!
I have eaten here before. Food is very fresh. Really enjoyed the prosciutto and arugula pizza, kale salad and sausage rigatoni. Enjoy sitting in the back room for lunch, bright and roomy.
Happy hour was very good! Hostess was a bit stretched between tables but drinks were enjoyable.
We had a wonderful meal. The food was delicious. The wine list was limited, but the wine went very well with the food. We will definitely come back!
Emporio is now in our NYC rotation. The simple, yet well prepared dishes and solid pizza for a decent price is great for a casual dinner out without fuss.
Great food quality but quantities tend to be small.
Emporio is a lovely space with friendly and focused service. The food is very good.
Need improvement on ravioli dinner
LOVE this place!!! Great ambiance and yummy food. Definitely worth a visit.
Great business lunch sitting in the back atrium room... Gives you an outdoor feel but temperature controlled.
Awesome experience! We celebrated a Roommate’s last night in NYC before moving away and they gave us a great table in the back room. Grilled peach salad is incredible, as is the speck and mushroom pizza and cacio e pepe! Highly recommend for great ambiance, friendly service and divine food!
Great service and environment! The pasta is amazing. Truffles, mushrooms, ricotta...what else could you ask for? This place is around the corner from Rubirosa and deserves just as many accolades.
It was way to noisy, party of 6 too tight in booth. Server was not helpful/accommodating.
Consistently excellent food. Great new management. Awesome wine list. And, finally, they're on Open Table so you can make a reservation!
Emporio is a wonderful Italian restaurant. The front room looks onto the street and the back room is sun filled and lovely. The service is excellent, as is the food. We had a great time. Also, they were playing good jazz. It was a pleasure.
Emporio continues to deliver. Our appetizers and entrees were delicious and hearty. Our two children (8 and 10) loved the pasta and pizza and devoured the fresh bread. Our Burata starter was plenty for three, and my pasta dish was creamy, tasty and exactly what I was looking for. The neighborhood continues to be a delight to wander.
I was really excited to have dinner at Emporio. We were visiting New York from out of town and wanted to have some great food. After reading reviews online, I thought Emporio looked great. My husband has an amazing pasta dish with a red sauce. I had a seafood pasta dish with shrimp and clams. It tasted very fishy and one of the clams wasn’t even open! It was clearly a bad clam but was still served to me. And the pasta was not cooked. I like al dente pasta but this was positively raw. I could only eat a few bites. Very disappointing.
Great food. Great service. Noise level high. Front seems better versus in the rear.
We took a food tour that included Emporio and it was so amazing we had to go back. Food is outstanding. And the Nutella calzone is to die for!
Amazing pizza! We will be back!!!
One of our favorites in Nolita! Always delicious, never disappointing. We’ve gone alone and also invited friends and it’s always a thumbs up and a real hit with everyone! Emporio is a definite go-to for us!
Strange review. Food was very good, but the place was too noisy fir my taste. If I didn’t care how loud my party was if other tables, would have given it a higher rating. Unusual to find a place with food so good that is just too loud. Usually, places with food this good aren’t deafening.
Favorite restaurant in New York!
Food was fantastic, nothing left on any plate appetizers to desserts! Accommodated our last minute increase in party size no problem. Service was excellent at the start and mid, a bit slow at the end. Overall great experience and will definitely return.
Birthday dinner, was great
Is always a Nice place, informal and pleasant, like to be in Italy.
Except our Tuscan wine came out of the refrigerator. Still one of my favorite Italian restaurants in NYC.
Great place, the one I always go back to with friends.
I love the food, the place, the service, the staff.
My favorite restaurant ever !
We love this restaurant. Food, ambiance and service are all wonderful. The kale salad is great, as are the pizzas. Definitely an excellent neighborhood spot.
Great for a group. Some can have pizza and other pasta and good salads. Service attentive. Not too loud. Very enjoyable and I will come back again!
I've been to this restaurant several times now and it's always been a good experience. The food is very good and the prices reasonable. I'm sure I'll go there again.
Pizza is outstanding! The restaurant is a hidden gem!
Pizza with buratta fantastic as always! Octopus portion was tiny but tasted good. Do not recommend carbonara.
Food was delicious and we sampled a lot. Gluten free pizza was the best of had. Our server, Anastasia was wonderful! Back area under skylight was really cool. We'll definitely be back!
