Busy and buzzy, with friendly and efficient front-of-house staff in this small family-run dining room. Saturday evening meal had a few tables for two, a few for four and an eight, with each table turned for two services in the evening. Evening menu all on written board, with attentive team speaking through each dish then giving time to chose before... More

This was my first visit to Emporio Italia and it will not be the last. This restaurant is quite small and space is very much at a premium however this contributes to the atmosphere. The food was excellent as was the service.

Good atmosphere and pleasant staff make this a good eating experience. Limited menu but freshly prepared food. Seating OK, slightly cramped, but this adds to the ambience.

We have been to this small restaurant before. The food is always good and the staff make sure you are looked after. There isn't a printed menu and part of the experience is being told by the staff what they have prepared today and how it has been cooked. To start we had Aubergines and cheese and Belly Pork and...

I was invited for lunch here by a local friend. Superb meal, risotto with pancetta, spinach and cream - perfectly cooked and full of flavour. Not on the menu, but we fancied some cheese rather than 'dolce'. The obliging and smiling owner delivered a delicious board to our table in person. Add in the friendly, flexible and helpful serving staff,... More

I have been to this restaurant twice recently and on both occasions I had an excellent meal. The menu had changed by my second visit even though there was only a short time in between each visit. The food is traditional Italian including interesting pasta, meat and fish dishes. I think a vegetarian would also be able to enjoy a... More

We've visited this restaurant twice this month and each time we've enjoyed a great meal. First of all the welcome is great and sets the scene as being authentically Italian. The complimentary pre- hors d'oeuvre is a good touch as well as being delicious. We loved the large blackboard which is the only menu there is - no paper copy-... More
