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.

Nice good food that is reasonably priced and a good selection, not the best wine selection and maybe the wine was a little overpriced for what it is but it’s a good intimate place.

Was very nice, but felt a bit rushed with the 9pm closing time and would have appreciated a fresh set of cutlery for the main as opposed to leaving our dirty cutlery with us from the starter. Despite this, great food, great atmosphere right by the water and great value! Looking forward to returning soon

Very nice to eat on the dock, with a lovely view. Food is okay - quite standard pasta and not the most imaginative options especially for vegans and vegetarians, but nothing major to complain about.

Had a really great time, the servers were busy so the service was as great as it could have been considering they were spread thin. The food was fantastic quality and the waitress was so accommodating and let us order an off menu desert that we saw online! Had a really great time would definitely come back, fantastic job from the team.

We were running late and tried to call as i said to give them a call to let them know, rang about 8 times and nobody answered which was annoying as it leaves you feeling a bit stressed and anxious, if it says to call i would expect an answer.

The food was tasty but the portion sizes were really really small and way overly priced! I paid £40 for 2 tiny plates of pasta and a tiny glass of orange juice which was basically a sip and one glass of Peach Bellini. My partner had the raviolli and i think there was about 8 pasta shells altogether which was ridiculously small.

The service was ok i didn’t find the staff overly friendly or nice it seemed very abrupt and moody. The table is booked for hour and a half but good job we were late because you only need about 15 minutes to order eat your small plate of food and small drink.

Very disappointed !! ☹️

I felt rushed due to them reducing our stay to 1hr from 1hr 30mins! We only found this out on our arrival, this made everything feel quick and they wanted to just get people in and out as quick as they can it was relaxing at all

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.
