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.

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.

We had a lovely dinner the food was really nice and the staff very friendly, even accommodated us when we were a little late. only downside was there wasn't quite enough pasta for me and could have done with some bread as a side, but being a veggie the only bread option had meat with it

Been here a few times now and always impressed with the food and service! Had to wait a bit longer than usual for the mains to come out but there was only one chef, obviously down to social distancing, so it was understandable.l and worth the wait still!

Honestly haven’t had pasta this nice since I was at an Italian wedding in Italy! Nicest dinner we had in London for our total stay. Staff are lovely, covid restrictions are being carried out and over all it was the best pasta I’ve ever had - definitely to the same standard as in Italy.

It's a pasta place, and even the pasta was bad. And the service was pretty one.thing..at...a....time. I was there for the 50% off offer and it was still bad value for money. The bresaola was decent enough I guess. Considering the time it took to reach the table, I reckon they make it themselves using house raised cows.
