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.

Great food- fresh and interesting flavours. Good quality and very tasty. Would recommend the mushroom.

Terrible service- slow, getting waiting staff attention was near impossible, had to go and get my own seasoning from the kitchen, despite all the staff being free just chatting at the back. Furthermore service charge for 2 added to bill, which I did not pay.

Nice view of the docks, and quite a cosy atmosphere as well.
Service was not great - waitress was rushed and disinterested, and it took a while for the food to arrive. The pesto pasta was nice, but the sides (burrata and green beans) were underwhelming, the portions were generally quite small.

I would recommend emilas, if you want authentic Italian food.. small menu ensures perfection ... A MUST TRY.... the lamb ravioli in butter n sage sauce... Mind bowing... friendly smiling staff who actually care about customer service...

The food was very good. The wine is expensive e for a small glass. The unwelcome surprise was a service charge at the end on the bill.

Friendly staff and their pasta is amazing, I can't wait to try the other pastas. Also the bellini cocktail was delicious. Best experience if you sit outside- great view of the docked boats.

What a wonderful restaurant perched near the edge of St Katherine's Dock - the food and ambience were divine. We had a table outside which was lovely. The Burrata was fresh and simple and the homemade tomato sauce with the pasta was exceptional. The service was attentive and I will definitely be going back. The only down-side is the toilet facilities but well worth a visit.

From the starter of mouth watering focaccia with olive oil and burrata to the hand made pastas, this meal left us thinking about our next visit already! Food is delicious and authentic, and the variety of pasta on offer was perfect - the well-known classics like cabonara and Bolognese were available but more unique varieties such as mushroom and walnut were also available for those looking for something new.

Felt like the food used to be much better with the old group of kitchen staff..perhaps the new crew still taking some time to settle in.

Lovely meal overlooking St Katherine's docks. Really enjoyed our dinner (Bolognese and Lamb Ravioli) and would happily eat there again. It's a very small place so book in advance!

This is the second time I have been to Emilia's. I have tried the smoke salmon carbonara and the Walnut sauce. Both dishes were superb. I would recommend book ahead as the restaurant is extremely popular.

Great location, fantastic pasta. Would certainly go again. If there was a downside it is you have to use the public toilets outside which were dirty.

Second time we’ve been before going to the theatre. Overall fine but nothing amazing, just decent food. Service was fast but got a couple of things wrong and not the most attentive.

No italian feeling, not 100% authentic, only slightly OK for its price... Scarpetta does larger pasta boxes with tastier sauces for half the price! Ingredients are good, but that’s just not enough... will not go back!

Fabulous meal for my birthday & family trip to London. Excellent service by all staff members. The pasta & side dishes were phenomenal, some of the best Italian food we have eaten outside of Italian! Highly recommend the walnut & mushroom pasta. Thank you for my free birthday dessert & coffee...what a lovely surprise!

Beautiful fresh pasta, and aresonable sized portion. We both had the bechamel bolognese and the sauce was really good. Sweets good too. And excellent cocktails
Ambience good for casual dining and people watching. Some people seemed to be taking unfair advantage of the small number of tables by lingering overlong savouring a glass of water!

I went to have a taste of their Pasta with pesto and I found it surprisingly good. I believe this is the best pesto I ever had in my 8 years in London! The pesto was really authentic, homemade and follows the traditional recipe from Genoa. Also the pasta they used was trifle which is again a ligurean tradition, extremely tasty! Compliments to the chef!

One of the best Italian Restaurants in London! Visited on Saturday 25 June and cant wait to go back. The food is exceptionally good (some of the freshest and most delicious pasta I've had), it has a fantastic location with pleasent views over the dock, a great lively atmosphere and good prices. The service sets this restauranta part though. Personable, polite and very professional... nothing was too much trouble and they clearly love thier jobs. The salted chocolate brownie is out of this world too! Will definitely recommend and cant wwait to go back.
