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.

After visiting London Tower we were extremely impressed to find this gem up to our standards. The quaint eatery has a nice view of the water with little foot traffic to block one’s view or detract from the menu.

Food wise the options for pasta vary and our family tried four different pastas and all were excellent. While not a large wine menu, we sampled two different wines to our liking. Our teenagers enjoyed a nice dessert while we sipped on an expresso.

I highly suggest booking this option on the backside of an AM Tower of London tour.

The staff are incredible - friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. I requested for a table outside although they don’t take bookings for the outside area but they made it happen. Can’t thank them enough for making me evening so special and memorable. It’s a real gem and can’t recommend it enough!

I took the pesto pasta, they were good but I read reviews saying the pesto was outstanding. Pasta are but the pesto itself was not so great.
We shared a few dessert, lemon cake was very dry and flavourless, the salted brownies was good.
Waiters were really nice.

Nice setting and good service. Chef tried to make the pasta "al dente" but it was slightly undercooked and too hard.

I wouldn't hope to find such a good food or more likely such an excellent pasta in London, but I did. Find it through TripAdvisor because of closeness to hotel, online reservations and good reviews, but was genuinely blown away with casarecce pasta with walnut sauce and chestnut mushrooms.

Food was decent but service was poor - slow despite not being busy, they forgot our wine and then forgot one of the side dishes - I reminded them but it still never arrived but was on the bill. We were served by the Manager, so he should have done better.

Visited for a catch up with a friend. We started with the burrata and ciabatta, which was so simple and delightfully creamy. The homemade parmesan, pecorino and basil pesto casarecce was delicious, but for me to the showstopper was the homemade creamy walnut sauce with chestnut mushrooms casarecce. A taste sensation. We paired our food with a the Sauvignon Blanc which was crisp and perfectly chilled. Overall, it was a fantastic meal, with brilliant service and buzzing atmosphere, especially for a Monday night. Will definitely be coming back

Fantastic small restaurant with friendly staff and amazingly fresh pasta dishes. We celebrated Mother's Day with my mother in law here and loved everything about it. We had a nice table outside which looked over St. Katherine's Docks, great appetisers and pasta, and the wine selection while small is very reasonably priced. Highly recommend!

Great service, and well made Negronis! Pasta was delicious, although the ravioli was lacking in filling. We were offered to try a sample of the wine too before we chose which was great. Had a lovely window seat and the place had a great vibe for a Saturday night dinner.

Absolutely love Emilias. They make all the food fresh to order so can add or remove ingredients. Perfect for allergy sufferers. The restaurant is cosy but you can book for a larger group or just turn up if there’s only a few people. They cater for children and provide high chairs, you can take pasta home if the kids don’t eat it all (but that rarely happens as it’s sooo good) but if you are going on a date they can find you a quiet cosy corner. There’s windows both a view over the docks or a bar seat with a view of the kitchens. The staff are all friendly and helpful. Thumbs up!
