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 cheesees, artisanal and house cured charcuterie, raw bar, fritti, wood-fired pizzas, home made 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.

Wonderful ambience, great food, good wine advice....A bit loud, but fun. Chef seemed to want to shoo us out at 10:15pm, which was gauche and not appreciated after an expensive meal.

First time dinning there on a Saturday at 5pm, excellent fish, I had the branzino whole fish. Servings are a bit on the smaller side but delicious and savory. Appetizers were actually quite generous. The cocktails were ok, a bit mild. I would definitely recommend and return.

Great seating inside and out.

Menu was a tad pricey but the pasta was fresh and flavorful. Very worth it.

Old fashions however came with ice cubes and not a solid cube which is a turn off in a bourbon drinkers eyes.
I also wanted to add shrimp to my pasta and was not able to which I found odd.

Other than that great menu. And experience.

Our waiter was pretty inattentive which hurt the experience. Cocktails took 15 minutes… One of our starters never came… We waited 10 minutes just for a wine list upon receiving our food and had to cancel the bottle because we finished our meals.

I like the ambience of this place but I tried their pizza not for the first time and it was just cold. The other time was barely warm and it’d be really good pizza served hot. Cocktails were average too. It could be much better place with a bit more effort.

Truly excellent service. A manager noticed that our water bottle looked like it wasn’t very cold, so he replaced it. Both he and our waiter checked on us a few times to make sure everything was good. They weren’t annoying about it, just nicely attentive.

My son and I had pizzas. They were very good, but I’d try something different next time. And, when I’m in town again, I’d love to go bank.

I have been eating here for 10 years and I’ll keep going here as long as they stay open. The service is wonderful, the food is always delicious and the back room is magical. It is a proper place to congregate, share food, laugh and decompress. Order everything and leave room for dessert <3

I’ve been coming to emporio for years. It’s been a special spot for me and my partner. We’ve come here for anniversaries and dinner with friends and just to have a seat at the bar. While the food is consistently good, the ambiance has changed a lot since our last visit (prior to covid). I remember the space being very intimate and not too noisy, but this time it felt like a beer hall. I took my family here since they were visiting the city and we could barely hold a conversation. It felt like we had to rush through dinner in order to get a reprieve from the loud dining room space. I was extremely surprised by this. Service was not as good as it usually is either. They didn’t bring my brother a refill on his drink until after the dinner was over and they could have been more attentive. I also found the waiter quite dismissive. I complained about the noise level once to him and he said he would tell the manager but no change was attempted or apology conveyed. He also didn’t really seem to pay much attention to our table. In fairness, it seemed like the restaurant was understaffed. In light of this, I doubt we will be making a return to emporio.

I’ve been going to this restaurant for many years, and I’ve always loved it. Last night was quite disappointing. I need to take the group of six people and it took over 30 minutes to get a drink water if you get our night started. We had three different waiters All pleasant, however the service was not seamless. I have to understand the teacher post pandemic times and that it’s difficult getting stuff right now, So I have to give it a pass.
We ordered the duck and a steak, both which were overcooked, two of our guests ordered the chicken which was massive in size, hence not as tender as I recall. However I will go back in the near future in hopes that there been improvements.

The ambiance was great. Natural light came in from an overhead window. However, we waited over 40 minutes for our main courses to come out. Then, they charged $30 instead of the list price of $22 for two of the meals.

Very nice ambience, and the food is good but MUCH too salty. The squid ink paccheri was rubbery but the taste was good though overwhelmed by salt. The burrata ravioli with porcini also quite good but much too salty. Kale salad outstanding, heirloom tomato appetizer good but not terribly eventful. Affogato dessert was quite good as well. Service was good at first then they ignored us and we were among the only diners. Go figure.
