Emporio is an Italian place in Soho, but it isn’t trendy. It’s just a solid place to get pasta with a group.
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!
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.
the food is fabulous. the noise level is punishing and not helped by the constant music. lunch is the same menu but much more pleasant.
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.
Food is very good. Service slow. Very noisy, hard to talk, but it is a festive environment.
The best food and pizza !
Good food, nice environment. Gluten free pizza was great!
It was delicious, attentive, fun and easy. I love this place and (really) can’t seem to get enough of it.
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.
Great food and service
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).
Very good north Italian food with a good list of wine from Piemonte. Love this place.
Fabulous- staff is amazing! Food was delicious and perfect environment- best place!
Great food, service was friendly, but a bit slow. Everything else was perfect.
Amazing!! I love this place. I’ve been coming for happy hour for years and went for dinner last night before a movie. Split a pasta and a pizza with my boyfriend a bottle of wine and the olives.
I keep coming back for the burrata pizza. Also shared a fritto misto and kale salad which were excellent
The food is excellent. My only complaint is that the coffee always comes lukewarm
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.
Wonderful food. Everything is delicious and ambiance is great. They do an amazing job with the vegetable dishes. Will absolutely return again.
We had a large party and they were exceptionally flexible.
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.
Found this place on a food tour and have been back half a dozen times. Always great! Love the sweet sausage pizza and the margaritas and arugula pizza!! Very fresh and light for pizza. Flavorful!
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.
