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.

Very intimate and small. Sat in front of the window and felt it was enough space for a lunch for two people. I did get elbowed a few times from the person next to me due to it being a little tight but not the end of the world.

The pasta is great and staff are friendly. Would recommend!

Unfortunately the original Head Chef is no where to be seen and the food quality has dropped drastically - pasta was served cold
- pasta was not untangled when cooking so you get these large bits of uncooked hard pasta at the end
- beef is not the same

Nous avons mangé dans cet adorable restaurant le 16/02 dernier. Avec nos enfants de 15, 12 et 7 ans. Après avoir traversé Londres sous la pluie, quelle joie de se réchauffer dans ce petit restaurant devant la marina!! Les plats de pâtes sont délicieux, l’accueil chaleureux, la vue très agréable. Je recommande !

A lovely little pasta restaurant. The menu isn't huge but the selection of pastas and sauces should suit everyone. The drinks were delicious, I can recommend the amaretto sour. It's small and busy which gives it a nice buzz and the seats looking out on the docks are great!

Lovely food, but was slightly disappointed at the service. We have been before and have had a lovely time, however on this occasion we were sat next to a broken window and not allowed to move to a table making for a very cold draughty evening. We told staff and they did not attempt to do anything to rectify this. Food amazing, but setting was not ideal for an anniversary meal.

Happy attentive staff. Great buzz in restaurant. Food outstanding all made fresh in front of your eyes, if your sat at counter. New vegan options on menu which although I did not try I show them being made and they looked and smelled great. Have been to both St Kathrines dock and Aulgate restaurants prefer St Katherine smaller more peronsal feel. Will be back soon

Great food in a very small but very nice restaurant. Atmosphere was friendly and cosy. Food menu is small but had good range of choices. We reserved counter space which was fine for a lunch for 2. If our group was any bigger however there looked to only be 1 table available to reserve so we would have had to book well in advance. Staff were friendly and helpful. Views from the window across the dock were great. All restaurants in St Katherine Docks do not seem to have their own bathrooms - you use the ones shared by all restaurants which are fine but means you have to make a very short walk outside.

The most amazing meal, as always at Emilia’s. Outstanding service and such good value for money, I already can’t wait to come again! It was a birthday in my party and the waitress kindly put a candle in the dessert and knocked off dessert from the bill.

Great food in general, Ragu was great and real comfort food, the cacio e pepe was a little salty. Service a little slack but decent experience, been twice and always leave feeling happy.

Il cibo buonissimo, luogo incantantevole... l’unico disagio è che essendo molto piccolo abbiamo mangiato al bancone laterale di fronte al muro. Il cibo però merita l’esperienza!!👍🏻

I am never disappointed by the food at Emelia’s- always fresh and delicious. The menu is short but well balanced and the simplicity is the draw of this restaurant for me as it is about good ingredients. My only wish is that the menu changed from time to time or that there were more specials as I have tried everything- it is all great- but I want more taste sensations from the Emelia’s chefs! Lovely relaxing g atmosphere- perfect for a cozy eve for two.
