Amazing food and hospitality! I will definitely go back and recommend to everyone! The staff couldn't do enough for us, and then the food was incredibly tasty. Also very good value for money, it surprises me that it's not fully booked continuously!

We came here for my partners birthday with his teenage children and all went home very happy. The waitress was very attentive and the food was outstanding. This is the best Italian food I have tasted in England. We will definitely be coming back here again soon :)

I don't have enough nice and kind things to say about our dining experience! The restaurant decor is lovely, there is a real feel of authenticity. When we arrived we were greeted with a warm smile and an eagerness to please from the off! Our waitress was kind and attentive without being too overbearing and nothing was too much trouble. Our waitress had an excellent knowledge of the wine list and the selection was excellent. We had the breads with oils as starters, we would have ordered two lots but were informed that they were a good portion size, so again showing customer service is paramount rather than taking our money. For my main I had the sea bass with the other sea food cooked along side it. The portion was incredible! The sea bass was cooked to perfection, succulent and tender. The seafood cooked with the sea bass were king prawns, mussels and squid - none of which were chewy or rubbery, just full of flavour! My girlfriend had the chicken and prawn in a rich chilli tomato creamy sauce which she described as scrumptious and after having a little sample I have to agree, the flavours were fantastic. All in all we had a real memorable night for all the right reasons and most importantly we left the restaurant with two beaming smiles. This is a real hidden little gem on the Harborne highstreet and if you get a chance you should definitely pay Emporio Maria a visit!

It's easy to walk past the Emporio Maria, but I'm so glad we did'nt as the service and food are excellent. The food comes in generous portions and is reasonably priced, although the wine, in my opinion, is a little on the expensive side. All in all a very good restaurant, where the wife and I will definitely return to.

We always have a great eating experience at Emporio Maria! The service is great and the food is hand made cooked exactly how you like it. They cater for anybody with food intolerances. The staff are friendly and polite they are not pushy in any way. A great night out was had by us in this wonderful restaurant.

Our first time here. Nicely decorated, cosy. All staff appeared to be Italian. Very attentive without being intrusive. my Wife and i both started with seafood. Calamari dusted inn semolina, and fruits de mare. Follow by linguine fruits de mare and sea bass with calamari and prawns. All of which was very tasty and well worth the money. We shared a bottle of Merlot at £16.95, which i thought was a little expensive, but very enjoyable. Coffee followed and complimentary Limoncello.The bill was a reasonable £65 We shall return. well worth a visit.

Excellent menu choice, food arrived quickly and was served by friendly staff. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal, pasta to Sea Bass, cooked to a high standard. Good choice of wine. We all agreed to visit Emporio Maria again.

The restaurant is fairly small so not too full and noisy and the decor creates a cosy atmosphere great for a relaxed meal. The menu choice was good with more than just the typical Italian dishes. We had 3 courses and all were delicious. Portion sizes are rather large so make sure you leave room for the Tiramisu for dessert, highly recommended.
