Emilia’s is the culmination of our founder’s travels around the Emilia-Romagna region and other parts of Italy. Each restaurant interior combines the simple, earthy, cosy and homely atmosphere that our founder experienced on his travels with individual features that capture and reflect the history of the building and its surrounding areas.
All our restaurants have identical main menus. In addition, each restaurant has its own seasonal specials menu where you can find more creative and experimental pasta dishes. Our Wood Wharf flagship restaurant also has an additional bar menu.
We take bookings at all restaurants and also leave space for walk-ins. To contact any of our restaurants, please email email@example.com ,firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Reserved tables are held for a maximum of 15 minutes at busy times. If you are running late please call the restaurant.
For any other general enquiries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

“ Founder Andrew spent eighteen months studying the science and geometry of pasta to ensure they were bringing Londoner’s the absolute best. All that effort certainly shows in the beautifully crafted fresh pasta that’s on display in the open kitchen – and it tastes every bit as good as it looks too ”

“ Emilia’s Crafted Pasta is a proper feelgood restaurant where every strand and parcel of pasta is crafted just as it is in the small trattorias of Emilia Romagna: fresh every morning.
