Emilia’s is a fresh pasta restaurant located in the heart of St Katharine Docks with a beautiful view over the Docks just a few minutes walk from Tower Bridge.

At Emilia’s all our pasta is made fresh every morning in full view of passers-by and served from our fully open kitchen, combining the warmth and welcome of an Italian kitchen with the theatre and passion behind our pasta.

When the weather permits we also have al fresco dining on our terrace overlooking the yachts in the Docks which we do not take reservations for (tables for this are available on a walk in only basis).

Our restaurant has a mixture of chef’s table bar counter seating, window seating, casual seating, tables and an outdoor area. For any specific requirements please call us.

Unbelievable food, the pasta is amazing and compared to Pastaio and Padella, Emilia’s is by far the better option. The only thing I would have loved is if all options of the menu were available (we couldn’t have the homemade pesto) nevertheless, the food we did get was absolutely top class.

Great food.
I've been many times and missed their pasta during lockdown, very happy yo be able to go back.
Try the 4 hour bechamel bologna or the creamy walnut. They're great 👍

Emilia's pasta is excellent - simple, freshly made pasta, bursting with flavour. Location is beautiful at St Katharine's Docks with tables outside by the water. I'd pick Emilia's any day over a charmless, boring chain for a quick bite to eat. Excellent value.

Expected more from the quality of pasta. Pasta was more lukewarm than hot. Service was friendly but sadly food did not meet our expectations.

This is my second time at the restaurant and once again, the food never ceases to amaze! We had the buffalo mozzarella with tomatoes, the 4 hour bolognese ragu pappardelle & the mushroom walnut cheese casarecce. Followed by barbera red wine & homemade tiramisu is an absolute delight!

Perfect - best original Italian pasta I’ve had across London! Truly feels like being in Italy!

Loved it. Outdoor table mid afternoon so was quiet. Great offer with 50% off pasta dishes. Had lamb ravioli and a side salad. Generous portion of delicious ravioli with loads of filling although the pasta was a bit on the thick side. Will definitely order them again soon. Very friendly staff. Thanks Emilia's!

Initially seated facing a wall myself and my wife were moved to a nicer area when other patrons had vacated.

Service was excellent and the food was great. Nice plates of food. Served hot.

Missing some items from the drinks/softdrinks menu when we visited. Offered some nice alternatives though

Overall we had a pleasant experience and would go again. Recommended.
