Italian
Emporio, a rustic Roman-style trattoria, managed by the same team responsible for the successful Aurora Brooklyn and Aurora Soho restaurants, has 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 cheeses, artisanal and house cured charcuterie, raw bar, fritti, wood-fired pizzas, homemade pastas 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, is offering authentic Roman cuisine with an international flair.

    Food was delicious, and I could devour the focaccia & ricotta all day! I loved that it was thin crust focaccia. The pappardelle bolognese was delicious as well, great flavor and portion. The Bellini's were yummy and not too sweet and most importantly didn't give me a headache. Lastly, the affogato & gelato was so good! The front of the house was cozy and warm, however the back room had an enormous and gorgeous skylight windows! Overall, the 3 star grade was mostly for the service. Although the food itself was delicious and the wait for the food was short, service was slow. It was a bit slow to be able to place our orders. Unsure if our arrival was during a shift/menu change from brunch to dinner, however we had to mostly be proactive in getting attention of staff versus staff being attentive. During most of our dining, there were no more than 2 tables occupied in the back room besides us. I'd come back however for the focaccia & ricotta and to try more dishes

    I am normally a massive Emporio fan but this time was extremely disappointing. Service was awful. We were rushed with our appetizers and when the entrees were brought out they were undercooked to such an extent that we had to return one of them. I am extremely disappointed as I chose Emporio for my Valentine’s Day and was really looking forward to this occasion.

    The food and service was great. However, I was disappointed with the table we were given despite making the reservation 3 weeks in advance. We were 6 guests total and were squeezed into a tight booth. I didn't want to make a fuss and ruin the vibe of the dinner, so I didn't say anything to the hostess, but I regret not asking if we could be moved. Since I booked this so far in advance, I wish we were given a decent table that could fit all of us appropriately.

    Very rude staff and poor service. Arrived early at 6:35 for my 6:45 reservation for a party of 3. They chose to seat me and my friend early despite my third friend not having arrived yet. The host told us they would “need the table back” at 8:45 as he walked us to our table, we said ok no problem as 2 hours would be more than enough time. Waitress pestered us to order drinks and appetizers before my third friend arrived and then told us she needed our table for another reservation at 8 PM! We said that’s not what the host told us, and she then changed it up again and said we had the table for 1.5 hours from that point (8:30). We rushed through our meal and declined dessert, trying to be accommodating to THEM and to leave in time for their next seating and go have dessert elsewhere, but then all of the sudden the waitress was no longer in a rush and didn’t come back to the table or bring our check! Then as we were ignored for a long time and it seemed they were no longer in a rush to push us out, we tried to order dessert and the waitress finally came over. We said you never came back so can we stay now and order our dessert? She responded that she was “just about to bring our check.” Overall a very unpleasant experience. Service was poor, rude staff, and we felt pressured to leave from the moment we walked in. Did not enjoy our dinner and would not recommend due to the poor service, although the food was good.

    The food was delicious. Seriously. Very thoughtfully constructed dishes with homemade pastas and pizzas. We just had pasta with apps and sides and we ate every drop because it was so good. I look forward to returning and exploring the rest of their menu. The staff was friendly, patient and thoughtful as we stayed longer than the neighboring tables and never felt rushed. The room was busy and charming. There were obviously some couples on dates and also a birthday party while we were there - but it was still easy for us to stay focused only on the conversations at our table. I highly recommend Emporio for the food, atmosphere and value. I can't wait to dine here again!

    I’ve been to Emporio several times and really enjoy it, great food and nice cosy ambiance. However last night our waiter was extremely rude, repeatedly to the point that we had to ask the manager to change our server. Disappointing experience. I would come back but hope the specific waiter will change his attitude

    Emporio never disappoints! We’ve been coming here for close to 15 years and it’s always been great. It’s our go to place when it’s just the 2 of us, but mostly when we’re inviting friends and family to join us. Everyone always loves the great food! Last night was no exception. The waiters were patient, we had a great table and stayed for 2 hours ordering many courses from pizza, to starters, salads , pastas and dessert. Long live Emporio!

    Service level needs to be vastly improved. Everyone was friendly. But the restaurant was 30% full and it took us ages to receive our order (pizza was almost cold) and even longer to receive our bill when we finished. Want to see the staff energized and on their toes to match their kind friendly demeanor. This is NY after all!

    Amazing good, beutiful sexy ambiance and a terrible service. First server told us that he cant take our coats for us we have to do it ourselves,ok no problem. Not pulling a chair or a table for us, so that we can sit without touncing the table next to us. We were told that we had to order everything at the same time, rushing us. Then we were dropped a check without asking for it and after 2 minutus he showed up with the machine to charge us. We felt really not welcomed Such a shame

    Food was all right- nothing mind blowing but quite good. Service was nearly non-existent, having had to BEG someone to take our order, which was the one-and-only time we saw the server. Ambiance and venue is very cool; just wish the service would reflect the rest of the experience.
