Emilia’s Crafted Pasta is back with both restaurants (Aldgate and St. Katharine Docks) re-opened and offering click & collect, takeaways and deliveries. With the British summer well underway you can now get a takeaway of your favourite fresh, crafted pasta and eat it al fresco either on the benches in St. Katharine Docks or in Goodman Fields (around Aldgate) both within a 1-minute walk of either restaurant. This is likely the closest you’ll get to a restaurant dining experience during these unprecedented times 😉
In addition to the full normal menu (which includes all our signature pasta dishes such as our hearty pappardelle Béchamel Bolognese and our creamy homemade Genovese pesto with casarecce), Emilia’s has added more flavours of signature natural gelato (creamy mascarpone, chocolate & hazelnut, Sicilian pistachio and raspberry sorbet) as well as their special amaretto tiramisu to their take away menu – perfect whilst going for a summer stroll in the beautiful marina in St. Katharine Docks.
Their gelato is sourced from a small independent supplier near Turin, who makes each batch from scratch using the abundance of delicious fresh ingredients found in the Piedmont region of Italy including fresh, whole fruit wherever possible, blended with pure, crisp Piedmont water, or creamy, fresh milk from their own herd of dairy cows. Emilia’s special tiramisu is a twist on the classic recipe, with a dash of amaretto and topped with crushed amaretti & cantuccini biscuits giving some texture to an irresistible mix of flavours.
For those wanting Emilia’s delivered to their door you will be able to find them on Deliveroo and through their own newly launched in-house delivery service with a larger more customised delivery radius! This was launched to keep as many of our team in work as possible (and off furlough) and deliveries are made using ecofriendly green electric tricycles that ties in with their recyclable packaging and brand ethos around sustainability.
Both restaurants have also introduced additional measures to help keep our team and guests safe. These include PPE, daily health checks which include using contactless thermometers with temperatures taken on arrival at work for every shift, social distancing measures (including no contact deliveries/handover), hand sanitisers provided for anyone entering the premises and frequent hand washing in warm, soapy water as well as updated trainings on restaurant cleanliness and sanitisation for our teams.
