Italian
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.

Terrific good and waitstaff. Loved the glass roof/ceiling. Got loud in the back as the night progressed, not sure if acoustic fix is a possible remedy. Would definitely return!

I absolutely love Emporio, and it is my go-to business meal for folks willing to travel a bit from the office. The prices are extremely fair, and the food is all excellent. Standouts include the kale salad and the prosciutto and burrata appetizer (which is an incredibly generous portion). Additionally, they have a wonderful affogato, for which I always stop by if I’m in the area. The service is also totally stellar. I’ve always had attentive and friendly service. Great choice for all occasions!

Neighborhood gem, tucked away on Mott St.
We went for brunch and the flatbread and breakfast pizza were amazing.

This GOTTA READ TILL THE END !!!!!


Resturant have amazing and delicious food, my growls friend and I we come here every other weekend, never had a problem !!
However 2 weeks ago we had multiple issue, we got the wrong drinks, wrong pizza and we found other things on our food, we told our waitress she apologized and gave us brand new dish !
Perfectly no problem. We leave we asked for that SAME dish to be boxed and to go,, plus the lit was not secured by the time I get home all my plate was split in the bag !! (Mind u I live across the street from the Resturant) and I carried the bag they way they handle it to me, I called the Resturant and told them what happen, they apologized and told me not worry about it, next week when you come will give you complementary pasta,

Two weeks later we went with my girls, we told the waiter oh we were told next time u come, you will get a a pasta on the house, he responded I can’t do that ! And we were like we not surging over $30 pasta. It’s gets all worst when I call the next morning I spoke to the manger (Mano) he tells me o can’t do anything about it, u should’ve said something, (which we did) and I told her I don’t want to say anything the first time since I love the place and the food, he tells me that’s not my problem, I can’t do anything, maybe you should carried it right so the food doesn’t spell, on top of that he just hung up the phone on me, I called again (right away) the host said oh he jumped into a meeting !
The moral of the story is it’s not the $30 pasta, it’s the promise was made last time, it’s how he handle it as manger ! And how u responded to a customer service problem.
I’m good blogger and trust me this will not pass since it’s not acceptable ! Not going to that place anymore because the manger has just some nasty attitude!!
Never thought I would say that but here I am !!

It was the perfect place for a Sunday brunch in crowded Soho. It was all perfectly spaced. We sat in the back and the lighting coming from the skylight was beautiful.We had the burrata, salads, pizza, and pasta. It was alll delicious with reasonable prices. We will be going back for dinner soon.

Disappointed! I made a reservation for 2 and when we got to the restaurant (on time) we were given a table in the hallway, by the bathrooms.
I asked if it’d be possible to change it and the only option available was outside, which I then asked for. Well, they gave us another terrible table on the sidewalk, where there was barely any light and was away from other customers and the warm restaurant ambience…the staff was not friendly at all when we asked to change the table for the first time, by the way! I even suggested we wouldn’t mind waiting for a better table, but the answer was a straight no.
We felt disappointed and decided to leave. Those tables should be for walk in customers and not the ones who actually made reservations.

We were told immediately on arrival that the meter was ticking and we had to be out in 1hr and 45mins! Of course beyond anyone's control, things as usual take longer than the rigid time schedule allowed. GM/Host/Fascist dose not have how to run a smooth evening such as, making relaxed pleasant evening for their guest who are spending a fair amount. We have been going there for years, and have recommended Emporio to friends. Who have patronized them for years also. We were celebrating my husbands Birthday, ordered deserts and coffees then were told after 5mins or more that the GM would not allow them to serve it! Was the future business Emporio will loose worth freeing the table for the receipts of that one party??????????? Kenneth Freeman

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
