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.

    A local favorite. Small but interesting menu, food carefully prepared, excellent very light and fresh pizza, generous size for one person. Attentive but not intrusive service. Lovely setting, rustic, skylight, old-school pizza oven.

    Open Table did warn about the noise level on the weekends and they weren’t kidding! The restaurant was great otherwise but had trouble having a conversation for the first part of the dinner because other parties were talking and laughing so loudly. Once a few tables left it was comfortable.

    From the very first moment to the last, Emporio delivers authentic flavors, super nice service and charming ambiance. A must-visit if you wanna have a great night out with your partner or friends. Our server gave us amazing recommendations, such as the meatballs, squid ink spaghetti and pork chop. We finished our dinner with tiramisu and espresso martinis, they were so delicious as well. This place definately became my favorite Italian spot in the city.

    Friendly attentive service and excellent authentic Italian food. Favorite items on the menu are the croquettes and any pizza or pasta. We always end our meals here with their affogato. Their drinks are also fun and wine list has something for everyone , from newbies to connoisseurs. Perfect for a date or friends and family gatherings. 5 stars to one of my favorite restaurants in NYC!

    Beyond pleased we found this gem - having grown up in Tuscany and lived in NYC for 20+ years, I can say their pizza was one of the most authentic and reminiscent of home that I’ve had in the city. Husband’s papperdelle bolognese were also excellent, as were other’s ravioli, as well as the Elizabeth Street cocktail. Only regret was that we DIDN’T stay for dessert and instead went for mediocre cannoli on Mulberry. I really wish I had stayed for their pannacotta or affogato. Next time!

    Got there at 6:10 for a 6:15 reservation got sat immediately and just felt a little rushed the whole time. Ordered the rigatoni with sausage. Drinks were reasonable we’re not able to make Paloma’s which was interesting. Fair prices, good vibes, food was out quick. Good time would go again.

    I don’t usually do reviews but I feel this one is necessary. My experience today was outstanding, since the moment I walked into that door everything was so lovely, host approached us with a great attitude, we were seated quickly and server was with us right away, tall guy with beard Italian looking, service was phenomenal and appropriate. Food was exquisite, they refreshed the menu and I wish we could have tried it all because everything looks just so delicious, rigatoni pasta was Al dente and the sauce was so yummy, only downside is the back gets a little loud, if your looking for a great vibe and atmosphere back room is perfect, but if your looking to get more intimate or have a more calm conversation ask to get seated in the front since is a little calmer, this restaurant is a MUST if you are in the area or live around. 5 stars and will come back, excellent service and food overall.

    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.
