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.

Tried the meatballs as a starter which was great. For main we had both pizzas and the risotto and we were all very satisfied about the quality. It’s very busy place and the noise level is high. I would go here again!

While the service left something to be desired, the food made up for it completely. We shared a few apps and they were sizable and delicious. For my entree I got the bucatini cacio e pepe and I’m STILL thinking about. The pasta was fresh, the spices were perfect, and it was the perfect portion. Will definitely come back (and I’m not one to repeat restaurants too often, since there are so many here to try)!

This place is a perfect little escape from the hustle and bustle of NYC and truly gives you that rustic feel of a trattoria in Italy. All the food (from what we ordered) was amazing ! The staff is so friendly and will gladly give you recommendations :) Also one of the best places to get a great tasting Aperol Spritz and Negroni !!

The food is always excellent however, service is very mediterian but cordial and the sommelier is very knowledgable. we ate Italian style: the Wood Fired Satur Farm Beets/Black Mission figs,Vermont goat cheese, mint, pistachio–was surperb. We split the Pappardelle Bolognese, which is to die for and the Lamp chops and Grass-fed Bavette Steak* Med-raw was tender and flavorful. The finale of Traditional Tiramisu and special blueberry tart with mascarpone gelato made this meal to write home about. Grandma must be smiling in heaven

Based on all great reviews...I was so looking forward to this restaurant but..
In town for the weekend & made res for four thru Open Table & up arrival was seated immediately in amazing back dining room with glass skylight ceiling... unfortunately experience went down from there.
Service: Our waiter was aloof & completely inattentive. Acted like he wanted to be someplace else.
App: meat & cheese board had ONE (postage stamp size) piece of cheese, sliced Prosciutto & 3 pieces of soppresato. Sugo Meatball app was completely forgotten & only showed up 3/4 way thru meal after reminding server 3 times. My Italian wife thinks they were undercooked, sad.
Dinner: ordered 2 (wood oven) pizzas & unfortunately both were bland & not even hot. Again I suspect the inattentive server for not delivering right away.
Pros: the ambiance & physical restaurant space was unique & beautiful. Loved it.
Cons: service was subpar & and food was average at best for the $$$ paid. Disappointed.

By comparison, the very next day had lunch at Eataly in WTC4 and We had amazing service & truly outstanding food (wood oven pizza, insalata misto, meat & cheese board, and homemade pasta for literally half the price!!

This place is always great. Food is yummy, the covered patio inside is amazing, tons of natural light while being comfortable with the AC inside. You can stay at the table after lunch talking to your friends and they don't pressure you to pay&leave like in sooo many places in NY. I love this place and I totally recommend it for brunch! Thanks for your work Emporio team!

Was disappointed. Read such good reviews and was looking forward to dining there. There were four of us and we were not served our mains at the same time. Also, food served too fast.

Chairs small and hard as a rock. Very cramped table for four. My fish was dry and came with very little accompanying garnishes or sides.

The fiddlehead salad was very good. Our guests liked the focaccia and pizza. Otherwise non-descript food for the money.

My friends and I visited Emporio during a get together in NYC. It received good Open Table and TripAdvisor recommendation for mid-priced fare. We started with each of the bruschetta offerings. These are large and traditional with cheese, parma ham and margherita on pizza crusts and plenty to share. My friends had the sweet sausage pizza and half chicken mains and said they were delicious. I had the bavette (skirt) steak and it was done to perfection. All our sides were delicious. We only regret not having enough room for dessert.
