Via Emilia 9
Via Emilia 9 in Miami Beach, Florida is the first of its kind in this city. A regional Italian restaurant, Via Emilia 9 only serves menu items that have actually been imported from Italy (flour, eggs, fruits and vegetables being the only exceptions for good reason). The pasta here is made fresh daily from these Italian ingredients. You can even partake in truffle tastings to help better inform your palette.
While there are a number of great entr�es to choose from at Via Emilia 9, the stewed veal cooked in milk definitely stands out. The veal with cooked ham and cheese is another favorite.
Best pasta since I lived in Rome. Wonderful owners.
Excellent all around. Authentic Italian Food. Great Staff and service. Recommend the Ravioli du Jour and the Linguini Al Vongolle (seafood). Wine list is thorough with great imported Italian wines. Grazzie Mille!
True cuisine from bologna . Tortellini in brodo are fantastic. the menu and preparation respect the authentic tradition
My husband wanted someplace charming and low key that had good reviews - so off we went -
The starters were good -
Main courses and pasta flavorless. Lobster undercooked.
Chicken breast was def not cooked to order- tasted like it was precooked and then put to reheat- DRY , TOUGH and inedible. Server told me to order something else because that’s how they prepare it there. Server was insulted bc I said the manager should speak to the chef about that. Server said the chef was her husband - I said “ don’t take it personally, my husband can’t cook a chicken breast either!”
Meatballs were dense , tough and flavorless - I am still annoyed I ate them - what a waste of calories!
My husband liked his steak but he will eat pretty much anything that wasn’t moving . What a wasted evening!
My advise - if you feel the need to go there - order one of the starters and a glass of wine and then move the party elsewhere .
Sorry Mr and Mrs Emilia but you def need some cooking lessons- maybe you think making homemade pasta is enough - but it’s not. if you want to know what a chicken breast should taste like - check out Cecconis .
They comped our dinner - I would have been happier paying for a dinner I enjoyed rather than eating a bad free one.
The server told me not to come back- that’s ok -there is no reason to every eat there again .
Think Pasta, THINK Via Emilia .... Always a warm Welcome and AH-MAZING Fresh Pasta ... Grazie
Pasta made right in front of us. Truly amazing. Fabulous place.
Great find! Authentic Italian dishes and ingredients. The service was outstanding. Highly recommend it.
Great local Italian serving truly excellent pasta washed down with a good, inexpensive wine selection
Wonderful food and a great find. Favorite restaurant in Miami Beach.
Complementi per il cibo, fatto veramente come in italia.
Oustanding food and service, very personal, very kind and attentive! We shared the tuna tartar (was fantastic) and asked to split two entrees so we, me and my wife, could taste a three course menu! Very special!
Went for my friend's birthday. Cute little restaurant. A little pricey and the portions were small. I guess I'm just used to western size portions. They do use a lot of cheese which made the food a little salty. I would be cute for a date but not for groups in my opinion
Highly recommend; Italian at its best. Having been there several times, never a bad experience. Note the Flatbread is enough to share. Actually it's a great thing to order a few dishes & share. Nice wine list, if on the high end. I think the least expensive bottles are $40.00.
Authentic, atmospheric, amazing food.
We love via Emilia 9. Food from our home town. Or close... Bologna
I never happened in my life to be called back from the restaurant because I had not left a tip....crazy and unacceptable not to try absolutely
Service was amazing. It’s a cozy, rustic place which I loved. I was recommended by my colleague that lives on the Beach and was happy I went. We had burrata, prosciutto, tortellini then the special of the day was Veal plus the chocolate cake as it was my birthday. Everything was delicious. Can’t wait to go again.
Authentic Northern Italian cuisine
Excellent service and very good food
As usual, uncommonly good service with excellent fresh pasta.
Plentiful vegetarian options, a little pricey but the quality of the food and service is most definitely worth it.
To avoid the crowds and long walk to the heart of South Beach on our last night, we chose Via Emilia 9 which was a short walk from Residence Inn and a Fodor's choice in our tour book. The food seemed authentic Italian as promised. Gnocchi and chicken with artichokes were delicious. Appetizer eggplant parm was tiny, flat bread was not pizza-like but filling in a large folded crispy tortilla-like sandwich, both very good. We both had wine, on the pricey side for smallish glasses.
Via Emilia took me back to when I lived in Bologna, Italy. The food was delicious and the staff were very friendly. I was very happy with my experience.
If you walk by in the afternoon, you can watch them through the window make pasta....and then come back in the evening for some amazing Italian regional specialties. Always a treat to come here.
It’s hard to gauge the ambience is it was very empty when we were there but the pasta dishes were fantastic
Food and service were fantastic. Tartare was a revelation. Great pasta—actually romagna style. Great wines by the glass.
Excellent authentic Italian/ pasta dishes home made and without equal
Always a pleasure to eat at this italian restaurant. Everything is so gooooood!
"Simple" but italian genuine!
We had a retirement party with 12 relatives and fiends. They welcomed the large party, very friendly and great food. Highly recommend
amazing! so nice and accommodating!!!!
Fantastic food at very good price, we ate outside so the ambiance was very quiet. Makes us feel like at home in Italy.
I love this place: great food, service, value
Great home made on site pastas and great real Italian.
Cute interior,friendly staff,original Italian food
A real gem...the tortellini in brodo is truly spectacular although you can't go wrong with any pasta.
Great pasta specials and nice selection of Italian wines. Also, the coffee with ice cream is a fun dessert.In fact, we visited 2 nights in a row!
The food is authentic italian, very rare in Miami!
