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.

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!

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 .

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.

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.

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.

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.
