They put the 5 of us at a really small table and were rude when we asked to move. They also took a long time in between courses.

Top 10 meals I’ve ever had in my life. Service was outstanding for upscale casual :-) dessert was perfect
Excelente restaurante! Precios, alimentos, servicio y ambiente! Muy recomendable
Great food and vibe! Interesting end to our dinner as they began closing up the restaurant around us at 10:30pm.
Fun vibe. Had a great time. Food, cocktails and service were terrific.
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.
We've lived in this neighborhood for quite some time, and somehow, we never went to this restaurant.....but we'll be back soon. Authentic Italian service, homemade pasta, fantastic service and nice vibe!
The restaurant and staff were so accommodating to a last minute thunder storm reservation.
Great food! We’ll be back!
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
The bolognese was AMAZING. 10/10 and they even have GF options.
Emporio never ever disappoints. One of my all time favorites.
Had so much fun and would recommend Emporio to anyone! Also, the espresso martini is a must
Authentic Italian food in a very pleasant atmosphere.
Tuscan kale salad and best pizza
Traveled here from west coast, seeing old friends after many years away!!!
This is always my “go to” restaurant, it’s always delicious!!!
It was a nice place! Service was really fast and it was delicious food. It was quite loud, but you could tell the energy was happy and exciting! A fun place to be, with a very pretty ambiance!
My dining partner is gluten-free, we ordered the gluten-free pizza. It definitely was contaminated with gluten and she was horribly sick. Terrible.
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.
Food was delicious and staff very attentive!
Croquettes were outstanding and pizza and meatballs were great.
Amazing birthday dinner for my sister’s 30th! They made it so special, gave us the table we wanted and presented the most delicious tiramisu for dessert!
The food was BELLISIMA! So delicious, every dish. Love
this spot and will definitely be back☺️
Wonderful brick and wood soft surroudings. But the food is the star. Every dish is delicious, well seasoned.
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.
Nice setting tasty food. Large space in soho.
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.
Every dish was incredible— fresh, top-notch ingredients.
One of my favorite restaurants in NYC!
I go with every friend and family member who comes to town.
Best gluten free pizza in nyc!!! Excellent dishes overall and nice wine list. Highly recommend for casual and great vibes
Unbelievable. All the food was delicious and wait staff friendly.
Good wine and food - the Squid ink pasta was amazing!
Loving it since years & best meatballs ever.
This is one of my kids’ favorite Italian restaurant. We had early Mother’s Day dinner with my mom in law. Food was excellent. Service was efficient. We were very happy with the experience.
The staff is great and food delicious. The outside dinning is a little cramped. There is a nice skylight lit back eating area that will be great once most of us are vaccinated.
Great service and wine recommendation to complement the delectable food we know so well! Always a great meal here!
Great as always! One of the top spots for Italian in Manhattan
I have to change my review as it's now been a couple of times I went there and was rushed to eat to the point where you can't relax and enjoy your dinner.
If it was a fast food joint I would get it but this absolutely isn't.
Beware that your reservation is for only 1 hour and a half... that's completely inappropriate for a restaurant trying to serve a quality meal.
The staff really makes you feel that you have to hurry. Extremely uncomfortable.
Had the most fantastic birthday dinner for my boyfriend. Party of 10 was accommodated with quick, helpful, and amazing service. The ambiance of the restaurant is second to none. Not to mention, every plate we got was incredible! Highly recommend Emporio for any occasion. We’ve been there with just a party of 2. Same result, super happy!
