Just opened 14 Feb 2022!
Walking into Emilia’s Wood Wharf will be like entering a bustling trattoria in Italy’s Emilia Romagna region with an ambience created by natural terracotta-plastered walls bathed in natural light, rustic Iroko furniture, creamy crema marfil marble counters and hand-painted Italian tiles. Chefs making fresh pasta greet diners at the window in a special dedicated custom-made area visible from all sides. The thoughtfully designed interior cleverly combines a vibrant bar area with a custom table bocce for some competitive socialising in half the restaurant, with a cosy rustic restaurant section for more intimate moments and lingering conversations. The custom-designed kitchen and bar areas will be fully open for diners to watch the theatrics of drinks and dishes being freshly prepared. Outside, alfresco diners will enjoy views of the water and the green open spaces of Harbour Quay Gardens as well as the stunning architecture of surrounding Canary Wharf

    The food was pretty good. However, for a restaurant that advertises itself on gluten-free options, they seem woefully ignorant of which dishes contain gluten. We had to point out items to the waiting staff. Even then they came back and indicated that items that were supposed to be gluten free, did indeed contain gluten.

    I've been wanting to go to Emelia's for a while because a friend had recommended it. It did not disappoint. I had the cabonara and the flavour balance and depth was on point, cooked to perfection. Will definitely be going back.

    Just not for me. If you don’t know how to cook Italian pasta authentically, and you want a taste of what that is then they come pretty close. If you know anything about cooking it you’ll know theres no pasta dish in the world worth more than £12, portions are decent but do not justify the price, pasta was cooked al dente which is seemingly standard, if you want it ben cotta you’ll likely have to ask as a special request to the waiter as there is no obvious option for it on the menu, the options are also quite lacking in the protein department. Options for drinks are standard, not very many alcoholic options, however the beer they stock is quite nice. This might have just been a bad day so don’t take this for gospel, the service was good as despite a blunder in serving our starters, the issue was quickly resolved, even being as nice as to offer us the food that wasn’t meant for us so as to not waste it.

    My carbonara was nice, as was the walnut and mushroom pasta one of my friends had - but I went for a friends birthday specifically for the gluten free pasta as she is intolerant, and she really didn’t enjoy the meal. The GF pasta was mushy, and they wouldn’t let her have it with the carbonara sauce despite her asking for this. She then had it with the sicialian pesto sauce which she didn’t end up enjoying. They didn’t ask us whether or not we were enjoying our food until they came to collect the plates, and I had to draw attention to the fact that my friend had barely touched her food. To their credit, they removed the cost of her meal from the bill - but truthfully I wouldn’t visit again.

    We had made a reservation for dinner on Friday night at 2030. We ordered the carbonara with pancetta and the homemade creamy sauce with walnuts and mushroom. Both of the pasta dishes were good! However the service was atrocious. We had to wait quite a long time for our table. Once we were sat on our table the server was quite slow to take our order. Once we got the pasta dishes, we requested some chilli oil. We had to wait so long for this I ended up reaching the bartender to ask for the chilli oil myself.

    My husband and I came to celebrate a birthday. It so happened that it’s March 12th for me, and March 13th for him. We told the administrator about this in advance, and he added this information. As a result, they brought 1 cake for two. I call it greed. Is it our fault that our birthdays are a day apart? He also wanted a dessert for his birthday. It was terribly upsetting. The pasta is ordinary, nothing special. And it was too spicy.

    I love Emilia's it is my go-to place whenever I have friends or family visiting from abroad. The food is delicious, the service is impeccable and the prices are great. I am happy to remember I went to Emilia's soft launch at Canary Wharf two years ago and I am still choosing it over every other option.

    Very rude staff - food was tasty but served very cold - veggies on the pasta were fridge cold! Service was shocking! Glasses were brought to use carried with fingers inside them and things were thrown to us at the table (banging each plate on the table without even looking at us)! It’s a real shame cause you can tell that pastas if served warm could be really nice

    Food was very good, tiramisu was fabulous and authentic; service was a little slow but always friendly and polite, however very unpleasant to see a male staff member with tattoos scratching his chest hair and head and then handling items straight after. Staff members need to remember that customers can see and hear everything when they are visible at the food pass. Not sure I’ll visit again although we love the st. Katherine’s dock - will probably go there instead of this one.

    I booked a table for 6 at Emilia’s Wood Wharf, and all my friends were really unhappy about the service we received. No one came to check on us not once, we had so many different waiters, we got the slip slapped on the table twice without asking for it- amongst other things. It was embarrassing for me as I was the one who suggested and booked the place- customer service really sucked- and I will definitely not be back.

    Second time here and preferred it to the first. We ordered off the veganuary menu and it was 10/10. The artichoke and truffle pasta was delicious and the dark chocolate salami dessert was also super nice, the perfect after dinner treat. Service was good. Only thing I would say is that I requested high top seating when I booked as we got the option to choose, but we didn’t get this. It was absolutely fine as I wasn’t really fussed but they weren’t very good at accommodating our request.

    Amazing service. As the restaurant is in a very popular destination, they sent us a message 10 minutes before reservation to check if we were in our way. Once arrived, we were seated and given our time to choose what we want. Staff was friendly and helpful. Food was excellent, warm and despite being pasta, it was light and tastefully. Panna cotta is definitely recommended.
