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.

    Really tasty food in a very cute little location on the docks. Service was friendly and attentive, they have a lovely team there without being overly fussy. Only slight thing is price point is quite high for most dishes and I compare this to places like Lina which are often more central and portion sizes weren’t hugely bigger at Emilia’s. Still well worth a visit.

    Standards for prep are different in the US. Cooks were not wearing gloves to handle food and were not good about keeping hands clean. Watched chef blow his nose then pinch it between thumb and fore finger and not wash his hands. When he saw me looking at him he quickly rinsed them in water. No washing no soap just a quick rinse. Watched him pick up his phone and so some things with it then proceed to work in kitchen again no hand washing. It’s a tiny place and easy for people to see everything. I won’t eat there again for this reason. Food was fine not overly exciting but fine.

    Restaurant is tiny. Initially given a table in front of the door & so close to the next customer that it was uncomfortable so we asked to be moved. Told we could have a window seat until 6:30pm only. Waitress was on her own, which may explain what seemed like a bad mood, and not very welcoming but seemed to pick up when other staff arrived. We both had the pappardelle bolognese which was good but unfortunately, weren't minded to try anything else as we just wanted to leave. We would try this restaurant again as it's in a great location and on a different day, may be a great little place to eat, just not this time.

    we sat at the window bench so could watch the world go by... the pasta with Bolognese ragu was delicious - good texture, cooked well and the sauce had plenty of depth. And the rocket salad was tasty - perhaps a bit acidic. Overall - does what it says on the tin, and did it well.

    My kids and I dined here and we ate every single morsel. 4-hour bolognese, pesto pasta, and tha ravioli was delicious. We also ordered all three salads and the string beans with pesto was so good, my kids gobbled it down. The dessert was amazing. Pistachio cheesecake, mascarpone and chocolate hazelnut icecream was perfect. Great experience, great food.

    Service was average. Seemed quite mechanical and not personal. Asked to keep cutlery from starters to use for mains. This isn't a great idea and in my book is poor Starters were fresh and amazing. Main courses were good, but the lamb was a little over salted in the ravioli. Lovely view from inside to out. Staff were polite but I expected more of a personal touch from the reviews in the past.

    Absolutely blown away by this fabulous small, authentic Italian restaurant in St Katherine’s Dock. Staff were attentive, friendly and went the extra mile to make us welcome. Food was the best I’ve ever had ( Artichoke, truffle pasta special followed by pistachio cheesecake) Georgia looked after us like family. Highly recommended

    Nice food and great service, but the it's a small restaurant and the door was propped open meaning we had to sit inside with our coats on and it was still cold. I understand you need to do this as the staff are constantly walking outside to serve the people sitting in those seats, but would have been nice to be warned about this.

    Yummy food but service could do with some work- food came quickly but we were always having to get staffs attention rather than them coming up to us. This was the case even when it wasn’t that busy as staff were stood looking at their phones.

    Booked a table for my birthday, on a Saturday, two weeks in advance for myself and my partner to celebrate. Booked a table for 6pm, arrived on time, the booking policy says we have 90 minutes, by 6:50pm we had the first waiter approach saying we had only 20 minutes (inaccurate) left to finish our food and drinks and leave. I checked my emails and knew the time period that had been agreed in the booking was 90 minutes. Then by 7:05 we had another reminder of our time limit (20 minutes). Despite 25 minutes, a third, of our booked time left. We had another “reminder” of our time left at 7:23 (checked the time accurately because of the frequent inconvenience experienced). By this time we had made evident instances of finishing and moving, coats on. Then 7:33 we were told to move despite leaving at that point. No food or drink was left and we could be seen to be going. We had not only made a choice to eat here, but had chose a special occasion to be here. And the experience was absolutely awful. The food was also cold but we had not made a ‘deal’ about it. I only wish I had chose somewhere else because this is certainly not one for an occasion, even for two, to experience, this is lunch food with rush hour service. £90 down the drain.
