Emporio, a rustic Roman-style trattoria. Managed by the same team responsible for the successful Aurora Brooklyn and Aurora Soho restaurants, Emporio is destined to become another one of their dining destinations known for excellent food delivered in a relaxed and authentic setting.
Literally an Emporio, the restaurant will sell a superior selection of quality Italian provisions offering Italian and local cheese, artisanal and house cured charcuterie, raw bar, fritti, wood-fired pizzas, home made pasta plates and traditional Roman entrees. The menu concept is far ranging and flexible, allowing clients to design a meal suitable for their palette and their price point. In addition to traditional dining service, other options include a glass of wine with antipasti, a family style meal at a communal table or a pizza and prosecco break. Emporio, which means “local grocery store” in Italian, will offer Roman fare, wine and retail selections.

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.

We had a great dinner at Emporio. We first visited this restaurant on a food tour and decided that we would definitely return.

We had the arugula and prosciutto pizza as an appetizer which we all loved. Our entrees were all delicious. Service was friendly and prompt. Great restaurant and we will surely return.

This was the second time we've been to Emporio. The food was even better than the first time, though we were surrounded by a few large groups who were extremely loud so it was difficult to hear our table conversation. All in all, would still come back as its a good neighborhood spot. Definitely ask to sit in the back of the restaurant for the skylight. I've only been for dinner but would like to come back for lunch/brunch.

We live in the neighborhood. A regular place for us. Emporio is a true hidden gem. Assume the pizza always great because everyone else seems to order it. We explore the specials and other items on the menu and are always very impressed by the quality of the food. The wait staff is excellent, if sometimes obviously covering too many tables.
The unsung heroes are the bus boys. The ones who do everything except take your order and bring you the bill.
They are truly exceptional.

One of my favorite restaurants in Soho/Nolita area. I was a little disappointed in pizza this time. Used to be best thin crust pizza around. Now it’s still good but not as good as it used to be. Crust seems different. A little more white-bready and more crackery (less chewy). Also prices seem to have gone up a little.

Still atmosphere very nice. Service lovely. Prices moderate (by 2018 standards).

Food was mostly good, but my pasta was undercooked. I would have said something but the server was hard to find and had a chip on her shoulder from the start. Restaurant was also super loud, due to acoustic design and also music pumped too loud. Our stay lasted 3 hours, mostly because of slow service. Somehow we had a good time . Not sure I'd make a huge effort to return, but if you're in the neighborhood, worth checking out.

I've been to Emporio several times and hadn't had any complaints. Unfortunately, the service was quite absent this last visit. We kept having to track down our waiter for more drinks/food. A bummer since we were there for a birthday and spent a lot of money. Food is always on point, however their short rib special was pretty lacking. Stick to the typical menu is my lesson . Overall would recommend.

Love emporio and usually come for dinner. Came for brunch this time and although the kale salad grilled octopus margherita pizza and white fish salad were delicious I would have liked for an omelette option on the menu. The kitchen refused to make any despite having an egg white substitution on the menu. Would have been a nice addition but I understand that the brunch menu is limited. I would stick to emporio for dinner. Especially good for groups and a beautiful ambiance and decor!

A fantastic Italian restaurant ! Great vibe and cute setting. Fresh ingredients used and all pasta home made. Would just like the portions to be a little big to make this place a 5 star! Be sure to order a starter or dessert.

Lovely ambiance, delicious food, esp. pizzas, reasonably priced.
The only downside is the acoustics in the back room under the glass veranda.
Book a table in the front room if possible.
