Absolutely loved the atmosphere at this place and the food was delicious!!! Had the ragu pasta which was so delicious. Such a lovely vibe here...
Good service and high food quality
Was a little bit cramped, but everything else was lovely. Plan to go back again to try all the other dishes, we ate a bit too much so we were unable to enjoy dessert.
Food was good! Spaghettini was a little over cooked so had a noodle consistency, as opposed to pasta
Great atmosphere! Looks like you are in la mama’s kitchen. The quality of the food was great as well. I just found the service a bit slow but we had plenty of time that day ????
We loved our cozy Sunday lunch at the Pasta Emília- felt just like eating at your grandmothers house for a Sunday meal; warm and relaxed in a country house with great food and an Italian wine. The pasta special featuring the tagliatelle with fresh asparagus and celeriac purée was delicious among so many others; tagliatelle with mushroom sauce, tagliata di manzo and pan seared swordfish! The service was incredibly warm and friendly with knowledgeable suggestions. We will be back - Grazie Mille Pasta Emília!!!
You can never have a bad pasta here. They are all completely delicious!
Charming suburban restaurant in backstreets of Surry Hills serving authentic Italian fare. Service is casual and friendly. Food quality especially the pasta dishes are of a high standard and more special than most places.
Beautiful pasta, with sauces which were well balanced and very tasty particularly the crab. Good but small wine list, red wine we had was very drinkable.
Lovely restaurant great vibe but a little pricey. Staff was very nice. Food was good and i would go back. I would like to have seen cannolli on the menu. Maybe next time.
i have been wanting to try this for years. Food was great. It is on the expensive side though
regular and good consistent food
great taste and texture but expensive
A wonderful neighbourhood italian eatery. Make their own excellent pasta. Very welcoming staff. Good service. Has its own vibe and not so noisy. Totally reccommend
staff were wonderful and good was great
My pasta dish was so salty I couldn't finish it! There were no prices on the specials board & we were very surprised when we got the bill to see that the specials starter that 2 of us had ordered was $28! Not worth it!
Expensive for serving size. Great flavour and taste
Great food and service, however food was a bit pricey.
Great food, a real Italian experience
After arrival we ordered a bottle of wine the bottle of wine arrived ,we ordered them two meals they both arrived very quickly ( which may suggest they were preprepared !!! the speed was too fast to be made live )both meals were only WARM !!! a little disappointing for the price.

Pasta perfection - and more!
You can’t fake passion and a deep love for food, and Anna Eoclidi is an example of someone who truly loves food and all that it symbolises. Anna is the heart and mind behind Pasta Emilia, which originated in Bronte before relocating to the current Riley Street space. The cafe or ‘mensa’, which is a typical Italian dining hall, serves homemade and genuine food, nothing complicated and sophisticated. All the recipes, ideas and inputs behind the delicious fare comes from Anna’s Italian heritage and background, with all dishes made from biodynamic ingredients. Having grown up in a small village in the Emilia-Romagna region, which happens to be the pasta-making capital of Italy, there’s no doubt Anna has a special knack for pasta - her creations are award winning. Just try her duck and truffle tortelli with sage and butter or the strozzapreti with beef ragu' and parmigiano and you’ll be hooked. Thankfully you can buy Anna’s homemade pasta and sauces to DIY at home. Embodying all there is to love about Italian food and hospitality, Pasta Emilia has to be one of the shining stars of Surry Hills.
