Emilia's Crafted Pasta - St Katharine Docks
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.
Nice cozy place. No toilet in the restaurant, but you can use their neighbors. The food was good, but I felt that it was a bit overpriced for what it was. the salad contained only tomatoes and burrata. Cost 10 pounds. Past was nice, but its a bit funny to pay for 4 ingredient pasta 13 pounds and it was not aldente, rather harder.
Fabulous food, fabulous staff, an utterly fabulous evening. Thank you 👌
Came for my birthday last year and had a great group meal and decided to come again with just another friend. And it didn’t disappoint, absolutely delicious! Burrata and tomato salad was lovely and complimented well with the bresaola, which you could chose a salad or bread. Good to have option especially as you want to leave space for the main course. We had the slow cooked ragu pappardelle and the pancetta carbonara. The portion sizes were large and amazing, covered in gorgeous Parmesan. Definitely can’t accuse them of scrimping. Topped of the meal with the special dessert of ice cream with honey and nuts and amaretto biscuits and a glass of moscato. I waddled home completely satisfied. Hard to beat!!
Love the atmosphere and staff are very attentive. I’d recommend to others
Lovely intimate space in great location. Short menu, which is reassuring and we really enjoyed everything we ate. Service upon entry was not friendly, which is a shame. Is the easiest thing to get right in a restaurant, greet your guests with a smile and you win them over straight away. The girl who greeted us couldn't hear me when I gave my name, and was clearly irritated by it. Was rude.
Had a great time at this restaurant. Service was very good, and the food was excellent. Went at a great time, as was slightly less busy. Imagine it could get pretty crowded at peak times!
Everything was excellent,highly recommend! Fresh ravioli with lamb were superb!
Delicious fresh cooked pasta with a lovely setting!
Amazing food - everything was so fresh. Wonderful atmosphere and great staff.
just love this place... simple food done incredibly well at a great price and lovely setting
Great location, the food was absolutely delicious and the staff super friendly. It was my birthday and the staff gave me a brownie cake with candle. Will definitely go back
Superb. I’m no Italian guru, but this was absolutely 10/10.
Just a little restaurant in the lovely surroundings of St Katharine Docks but it is well worth seeking out. Friendly and welcoming staff and a pleasant ambiance. Not a huge menu but plenty of variety and the fresh homemade pasta with sauces are delicious. Good quality food at reasonable prices. Highly recommend.
Really nice small place, packed with tasty pasta.
Supurb food very fresh and tasty..
We were seated in the corner and there just wasn't enough space. We kept on hitting elbows with the people next to us. Wasn't comfortable and not ideal when eating
A nice little restaurant on the docks, great food, nice staff.
Our lunch was very nice - all 5 of us enjoyed different dishes. The pasta was delicious and the lemon cake for desert was lovely. Lovely location as well.
Great pasta - pure delish, unfortunately lack of toilet meant we limited our drinks and dulled the vibe a bit.
Delicious pasta in a lovely little setting. Would recommend to anyone and everyone!
Amazing food. Value for money. Would give it 5 stars but beware when booking on this site you could end up sitting at the counter (even if there are 4 of you) seating is super limited. I would phone to book if you want to be guaranteed an actual table.
We went for lunch on Saturday and the food was simply amazing and service is great too. Will definitely go back.
Quaint restaurant with delicious pasta. The bolognese was incredible!
Charismatic setting and we sat overlooking the dock. Small cosy place. Excellent food (ice cream with honey dessert was sublime) and friendly, unfussy quality service.
Great little place for a bite to eat. Lovely staff and easy access to hotels and other places to call for a drink
Our third time back and it doesn’t fail ever! Such a lovely setting, and the staff are so lovely and went the extra mile to make the occasion special for us. Food is great!
Went to Emilia's for an anniversary as part of the Sorted Club and had a fantastic time. Great food and great service - thanks for making it special!
Super cute place on the water. I bet when the weather is nice their patio is an amazing place to sit! Pasta was delicious, perfectly chewy, and sauces yummy. Walnut cream sauce YUM
We had a great view of the dock, as we had a window table. The food was very tasty ( bolognese ), but mine was not very hot when it was served, as if it had been sitting for a few minutes, before it came out. The staff were fabulously attentive and they immediately took away the food and another one was made.
Really great food and nice atmosphere, maybe better for bookings of 2 or 4- we were six and it a was a bit of a squeeze
Best bechamel bolognese in London. Will be back! Friendly service and delicious simple desserts, all at very good value.
Thank you Emilia’s! We had a really lovely evening. The restaurant is small (and v cosy!) so make sure to book in advance. The food is delicious, the staff friendly and service prompt but not too fast. It was my partner’s birthday and they popped a candle in his brownie pudding (which was very tasty) which was a lovely and subtle surprise. Thank you!
I specifically booked standard seating for two people and when I arrived there they did not let me since it was only for 4 people or more so we had to sit on the counter and I did not like that at all. So why have the option if we can’t sit normally? Very frustrating. And I didn’t see anyone arrive with a group bigger than 4 anyway. Also the menu is very scarce only a handful of dishes to choose from. The once I choose was nice but would have rather had more choices to choose from.
only issue is the public bathrooms :( which isnt your fault
Some of the best Pasta that I ever had. Staff were very good. Going to arrange to go back with a group friends
Amazing food and such nice atmosphere - small but cosy, and great location
Lovely cozy Italian restaurant serving delicious fresh pasta which overlooks the docks. Such a hidden gem!
The menu at Emilia's is simple but impressive - handcrafted pasta dishes with incredible sauces, delicious salads and some tasty desserts.
My sister had the ravioli and I had the tuna pasta, and both were delicious and joined the empty plate clubs. The waitress was lovely and helpful in suggesting a wine to match the dishes we chose and the service was fast.
Very good, food very nice and fast service. Could kinky
Be improved if the restaurant had been larger as traditional seating is limited but counter seating was still good.
