Handmade Ravioli with Organic Lamb, Parsley and Parmesan In a Light Butter and Sage Sauce
A delicate combination of lamb and herbs from the Emilia-Romagna region

4 Hour Slow Cooked Béchamel Bolognese with Grated Parmesan (Pappardelle)
Hailing from Imola, a town located on the Santerno River to the west of Bologna, pappardelle al ragú is a slow-cooked meat sauce
We had the Christmas menu and it was such good value bc you can get any drink! Also deffo try the buratta :)
Everything was fine! The only thing was that some of the pasta has like crunchy taste
Such a delicious meal - I'd 100% go back and definitely recommend!
Had an amazing evening!!! We had the 4 hour slow cooked Bolognese and it was done to perfection. Best pasta my boyfriend and I have ever had. The food and service was perfect. Will be returning very soon.
The service was good, the food was tasty at first and then quickly nauseating, and the ambience was appalling - my partner and I were shoved in the back, sharing a tiny table at right angles to one another because of a giant pillar taking the other side of our table which also had all the coats hung on it. Very disappointing
Probably my favorite restaurant in town! So tasty and lovely staff!
The food they have is exceptional. The only minor criticism is that they didn’t have a full menu available (including a dish I’d been recommended to try) so I’ll have to go back to try the buratta stater. Overall great though. Loved it.
Great food. Wish there were more vegetarian options.
Excellent hand-made pasta, and good value for money
Good, tasty food and really friendly staff with a chilled vibe.
The pasta was not tasty and wasn’t worth the price
The food was unreal. The best Italian I’ve ever had absolutely insane especially for the prices! So affordable. The desserts were also amazing. So impressed can’t wait to go back!
Food was absolutely delicious and fresh. Service was quick and price was very good. Definitely revisiting
Fantastic food, great atmosphere, just a little slow on the service front.
I went to Emilia's for my birthday dinner, and it was exactly what the doctor called for! The pasta was delicious (albeit with a little bit small serving sizes!), and the ambience was a beautiful date-night vibe! The food came out quickly—in fact, perhaps too quickly! We were seated at 6:10 or so and our food was ready by 6:35! Nonetheless, I would absolutely come back and would recommend it to a friend!
Always excellent pasta in a nice space with great service
Best pasta in London hands down.
Price point is on point.
Keep up the good work!
Could do with more luxurious chocolatey desserts maybe.
Food was really good, reasonably sized portions and price wise it was slighlty on the high side, but worth every penny.
Stuff was really friendly and attentive.
I would go back again.
We managed to get a last minute booking here just before they closed for lockdown 2 and my gosh we both thought it was so tasty and by far the best we have had especially the Lamb Ravioli
The service is great and the food is always spot on!
It was first time to the restaurant and we would return back after the lockdown.
Tables were way too close together (less than 1m)! We had to wait a few minutes to get another table.
Very good food, great value for money and nice ambiance.
The only reason why I didn't give them 5 stars was becasue I was unable to reach them prior to my booking on Sunday. I was worried they weren't open and called several times only for the call to either get a busy signal or ring out. I tried email and they never responded.
The food was great. My son, who is the pickiest eater in the universe loved it. In fact, I think he would have loved to have seconds of everything. Both him and my partner licker their platters clean. The service was great. The food was good. The orders arrived promptly and they honoured my request to be moved to a diferent part of the restaurant.
I will most definitely go there agin. Sadly, Covid might make that a long time in coming.
Best pasta house in town. Hands down
Went there everything was excellent; location, service, staff and most importantly the food. Highly recommended.
Fantastic pasta, very authentic. Lovely staff as well!
Not a typical Italian restaurant they put cream in a carbonara and the wine is not from Italy
Excellent food and felt very Covid safe. Would recommend
Fab food, quick service.
It was ok, food wasn’t anything special
Excellent pastas and good portions, good value. Tomato burrata salad and amaretto tiramisu also very nice.
Great pasta and lovely drinks/cocktails - staff attentive and friendly!
Really friendly and efficient. Would definitely recommend .
Music too loud especially in the context of Covid where guidelines from Public Health England are to keep music to low levels to prevent guests from shouting and risking spreading the virus. We had to ask twice to turn music down.
Good pasta, but the tiramisu was a disappointment.
Nice food served fresh and hot, simple menu and nice venue. Good choice for vegetarians
Service was excellent, friendly and accommodating staff. Food was tasty but I found the portion sizes to be lacking for the price. Lovely setting, quite dark but clean and aesthetic.
Social distancing was in place and stuck to (for the most part). All but one staff member was wearing a mask. Contact tracing was well enforced.
Overall nice quick weeknight meal.
Food is always good although my Pasta dish (number 6 - pasta with Pesto) on the menu was quite small. Also some of the heritage tomatoes were a tad raw.
The only bad thing was the waiter NOT wearing a mask even though it’s the law that all waiting staff are properly masked up! Hence, that spoiled the evening as he was talking over us and there was a risk he could have spat into our food!
Felt rushed by the staff the whole dinner. As soon as we entered we were told we are gonna have to leave in 1.5h and were reminded at least few times after.
Great Food, great service and a family favourite of ours.
