Italian
Emilia’s SKD is a fresh pasta restaurant located in the heart of St Katharine Docks with a beautiful al fresco dining terrace overlooking the marina, just a few minutes’ walk from Tower Bridge.

At Emilia’s all our pasta is made fresh every morning in our restaurant in full view of passers-by and served from our fully open kitchen. In true respect of Italian tradition, we use certified Italian produce and try our best to ensure no additives, artificial ingredients, preservatives or anything unnatural is in our food. We believe that food is much better when it’s 100% natural.

Our restaurant has a mixture of chef’s bar/counter seating (overlooking the open kitchen), window seating (overlooking our terrace and the marina), normal tables and an outdoor terrace (overlooking the marina).

P.S. We care for our people, our communities and the world around us. Please visit our website (www.emiliaspasta.com) if you would like to learn more about our approach to Sustainability.

    Amazing food! A friend was visiting from out of town, so I decided to show him this place and it did not disappoint. Great service, basically no wait time and the food was some of the best we’ve ever had! Would definitely visit again.

    Serving plates not clean. They have dried pasta stains. I asked for a new one and that wasn’t clean either. The rest of the table didn’t have plates either. Once i realised it really put me off for the rest of my meal. Didn’t enjoy it.

    This meal was absolutely astonishing. Unassuming in its ambiance, the food and service was unmatchable. Exquisite food made directly in front of you that left me wanting another plate! I will definitely be returning on my next trip to London, and will be recommending Emilia's to all of my friends and family on their next trip to the UK.

    Food was amazing, absolutely loved it. Only thing I’d say, and it’s not a criticism because the food was delicious, but I felt the pasta menu could have been a bit more varied. Some very standard things & two pesto dishes. Probably would have ordered more if there were a few more out there things available.

    The food was really great. Local Italian drinks. Appetisers somehow expensive for what they are but main course prices very decent. Space was a bit tight. But it will not prevent me fr future visits.

    Went for a birthday dinner & was very disappointed. - Staff were unwelcoming - Service is extremely quick (drinks starters and mains were served within 20-30minutes of arriving) - You’re crammed in to a tiny space with other guests directly next to you or staring at you - When booking it asks if you’re celebrating anything but I’m not sure why as they don’t even acknowledge it when you’re there. - Food was good but the overall experience meant I would not return.

    Very good lunch, excellent pasta. Quite a short menu but none the worse for that. Bookable tables inside are mostly arranged bar-style around the room, with a few tables in the middle. The few non-bookable tables are outside and you need to be there at 12 noon to get one. Not a place for spending a whole afternoon as they are keen to keep the tables turning over.

    We had booked a table but arrived a few minutes early and were shown immediately where to sit. The food arrived in reasonable time and was well presented. Accompanying drinks and side dishes were also fine. Overall the food was excellent, especially the puddings. The music was slightly on the loud side but not too intrusive.
