Came here last Tuesday evening for wife's birthday meal. A beautiful faultless meal. Loved it when chef came to talk through his menu so we could make our choices. This is a wonderful small piece of Italy in Ilkley. We'll most definitely be coming again.

Had wine (large glass), main course and coffee for £9.95. Visited for the first time today and enjoyed absolutely everything - can't wait to sample more authentic Italian food at this beautiful little restaurant.

Lovely little restaurant with a chalkboard menu that changes based on what is available locally. Book as it is very small! A real taste of Italy!

I regularly eat at Emporio and it is easily the best Italian in Ilkley - such friendly staff, excellent food and a casual but thoroughly professional standard throughout. Can't recommend it highly enough for lunch or dinner.
