Great pasta served with knowledge and experience resulting in fantastic tasting food, recommended.
Happy with food and service, did not appreciate not only was the VAT discount not passed to customer but an additional 5% ‘tax’ was added to the bill - this is just not right.
Great food, service and atmosphere! Would definitely recommend
Great food and nice staff! Also easy to get the government 50% off, thanks!
Always love coming here - the perfect date night - thanks Emelias!
Gorgeous food and lovely low lit ambient restaurant. The waitress was brilliant and the staff helpful and friendly. It was a candle on the table away from being perfect. Highly recommend!
Lovely fresh pasta dishes, tasty with good sized portions..
Food was nice though didn't stand out massively more than the other pasta restaurants we know and like in London, though that also says a lot about the quality of Italian pasta currently around. Burrata salad was very nice
The food was tip-top. The menu concise and easy to read. Enjoyable ambiance. Although the waiter spilled a drink accidentally, he was most apologetic, cleaned it up thoroughly and replaced the beverage free of charge. No complaints.
The pasta dishes are so delicious and fresh, and then the desserts just finish off the perfect meal.
The best pasta in London and the best service around!
The desserts are highly recommended too... and the bresaola and everything on the menu...
Honestly a very authentic italian experience at a very reasonable price. The warm service is an added bonus! Thank you team aldgate, will be back!
Food was barely warm, such a shame because it tasted really nice but would be reluctant to go again to pay for cold pasta
Didnt enjoy the dragging of furniture to prepare for close noise while we were there
Food was cooked brilliantly, but was hoping to see more interesting and a variety of flavours on the menu
We have been to the branch in the docks many times so we decided to try the one in Aldgate, the pasta here is even better! Thanks Amed for your amazing service.
Great pasta, carbonara in particular was very good. For the money brilliant, brilliant actually not matter the value.
Fantastic food and very smiley service. Would definitely go again!
I was very impressed with how personal the service is in this restaurant. From the food to the service, the whole experience was great!
Very good pasta, nice service and good value for money!
Das Essen war sehr bekömmlich und schön angerichtet. Der Service war gut und das Personal freundlich und zuvorkommend.
Really delicious food, would recommend visiting here.
Very poor service. Pasta was a disappointment.
Great pasta and service. Will definitely come back.
Really good food and a nice atmosphere. Would recommend.
We were sat at a very awkward table (facing an amorous couple, getting knocked by people walking past) so we asked if we could move to the table next to it but the waitress said it had been booked. We also booked a table so I didn’t understand why this couldn’t be done. We eventually caught the attention of another waitress who moved us with no issue. No one asked if we wanted a drink for over half an hour and it was the same with the bill. The food is good but the service really let it down.
I spent an amazing night at Emilia's! The food was delicious, the atmosphere was cozy and the staff was friendly and kind!
This is definitely the place where you want to go if you're looking for a proper Italian pasta in London! Super recommended👌
Food was delicious and fresh and was served quickly. The restaurant had a good atmosphere and we would definitely come back.
Great food, lovely atmosphere and excellent staff. Highly recommend!
Really enjoyed dining at Emilia’s. It was our first time there, the service was swift and the staff were friendly and attentive. The food was amazing, especially the desserts! Would definitely recommend coming here but also definitely book if you have a big group!
Small menu of fresh pasta dishes which all went down well. The simple barrata starter and olives were lovely. Service was a little slow considering the restaurant wasn't full but apart from that, we had a lovely meal. Would go again if in the area.
Service was extremely bad!
Outstanding service , really food and wine plus it’s quite close to Aldgate East station .. the music was also nice for the evening
The food was great, the service as well!
But too noisy!!
Although the food was mouth-watering, VERY delicious don't get me wrong. The service was a little disappointing and the table we were placed was quite awkward. My guest had to be squished on the side and there were no chairs to put our bags. We had our table reserved so I assumed that we would get a decent seat. Other than that it was ok. Would I recommend this branch? It's up to you reading this review.
Food: Depressingly bad. Lamb Raviloli was soooo dry in the middle, with bland flavour, and the 'butter and sage sauce' practically non existent. Relatively small portion, so left hungry (I think 5 ravioli on the plate)
The Green beans with pesto, decent flavour but again, horribly overcooked.
Service: Average, not bad, but nothing particularly good
Wine: Only enjoyable part of the meal (minus the company). Decent drop, but was still quite expensive.
No care was given to the food, and was very depressing, as I was excited to try the pasta here.
One of the worst I have had in London. Left hungry & cannot believe at the currently good rating it has on opentable. Not sure if this is reflection of all dishes or all locations, but the 'chef' we had, inexcusable.
I would have complained on the night, but was trying to have a nice night with my friend, and didn't want to bring the mood down.
Really excellent pasta. Good value and beautifully crisp wine. Our waitress Maria was excellent. Would definitely recommend.
Good vibes, quick service, dont sit near the doors though. Great for dinner rather than lunch.
The best Vegan Pasta in London! Amazing choice of wine and good atmosphere
Food is great, the wine is great and the staff are great.
I have been a few times and introduced friends who also love it.
The food was excellent and service was great ! Only thing that was missing was that I asked for some bread on the side with my salad but it never came. I would suggest they add bread / garlic bread as a side or starter. Other than that really had a great experience !
