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.

Emporio is an Italian place in Soho, but it isn’t trendy. It’s just a solid place to get pasta with a group.

The Infatuation is an app and website which uses a small team of local editors who dine anonymously to rate and review restaurants. We are partnering with them to bring you their smart, helpful, trustworthy reviews of restaurants on OpenTable

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
