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.

Very slow service! We came with two small children and one was asleep by the time our main dish came. There were two parties who came after us and received their food before us. They must have been Italians 🤷♀️
Our reservation was not found in the system but we still were seated less than 5 min later. Great service and ambiance, good food. I would deduct points for my steak ( ordered medium but got medium well/well done). Overall cute local restaurant. I would recommend to check them out
Amazing!! Just the best service and food! Love coming here!! Will be back again!!
Food is yummy and the atmosphere is wonderful.
I was very excited about this restaurant. I thought maybe we had found a great jewel. Unfortunately, the restaurant is buzzing and this takes away from the pleasure of eating. Our table was inside which was fine but it seemed like everyone was scurrying about without really providing excellent service. Everyone was nice enought but they seemed hurried. The food and wine were very good. The real issue with this charming spot is the parking -- it is very difficult. Notwithstanding, I would still recommend the restaurant because the food was good as was the wine.
The food was very authentic and servers spoke Italian, always a good sign. A lot more unique pasta options and the Lamb Tortellini with the truffle upgrade was amazing; also the prosciutto was fantastic and thin. The pasta is definitely more on the Al-Dente side which is how it's done in Italy. The only negative comment is that the 8 of us were there celebrating on our bachelorette trip, and a different server came over and asked us to quiet down-kind of surprising considering we were in the back of the restaurant, all girls and enjoying ourselves. Otherwise it was great and I would still like to go back.
The food and drinks are amazingly delicious! We love Via Emilia 9!!!
Meeting with the bosses, both Italians.
The food was good.
Place very full.
Excellent food and service in a quaint setting that makes you feel at home.
Great food and service. Good quality pasta as sauces. I would revisit!!
Food was spectacular- all made fresh or straight from Italy. The Italian chef and front-of-the-house duo provided excellent attention to food and service.
My go to place here on the Beach. Never disappoints. Food delicious and Cristina was really nice.
They made us wait 20 minutes to sit down even though we had a reservation, and they barely apologized. Service was subpar throughout. Ambiance was super nice, and food was ok. I wouldn not come back.
Via Emilia is one of the hidden delights in South Beach. We've been going there since it opened years ago, and it continues to grow the menu, seating options etc.
Valentina is a gem making the service, reception excellent.
Chef's food is excellent and always consistent
A local gem
Fantastic food and service!
Valentina was incredibly gracious host, food was delicious and we enjoyed the outdoor space. Can't wait to return!
Our server was efficient but not at all friendly
Being Italian it’s hard to find a good authentic Italian restaurant in the US but this one is definitely one of them!
The food is authentic and just as good as home, the servers are friendly and professional.
Absolute amazing as always!
Fabulous and authentic! This is real deal as close to food in Italy as you will get!!
It was a very nice experience. I enjoyed the Buffalo mozzarella and 4-cheese gnocchi — it taste like heavenly cheesy covered pillows.
My favorite neighborhood spot. Always attentive, friendly service and amazing Italian food.
Food, ambience, service amazing. What more can you ask for?
service top notch and every food item was fantastic - highly recommend
Service was great and food authentic Italian cuisine. One of the best restaurants on South Beach!
Such a nice find! On our last night in Miami we decided we wanted something more authentic without the whole scene and once I read that most of the ingredients are from Italy plus all the other great reviews, we decided to give it a chance. So happy we did! And will DEF be coming back for our next Miami visit! Benissimo!!
Love this place! Best Italian pasta in South beach.
Excellent food and service. Original concept with the truffle adding to the dish. We will definitely come back.
Exceptional freshly made Italian food. Great service and friendly staff. Live the new outdoor patio.
Amazing delicious and wonderful for business or family get together ❤
Incredible food and wonderful beautiful service. Highly recommended
We're so happy to see Via Emilia survive the pandemic. We've been dining there since they opened, and every year the experience gets a little better - expanded seating (mostly outdoors) and an expanded menu. The food remains the same - wonderful!
We love Valentina!!!
While we unfortunately didn’t have any food it looked great! Wines were excellent, staff excellent and fun to speak Italian with :). Love the location, quiet street off busy roads.
This is one of my favorite neighborhood places, good Italian food from the region of Emilia Romagna.
I always enjoy it and now that the outdoor has been extended, it is really lovely to sit outside, today we went there for lunch, very enjoyable.
I had Tagliatelle Panna Salsiccia e Funghi, this is one of my favorite, fresh tagliatelle with homemade sausage, mushrooms and cream sauce, very rich and very tasty and my friend had the Tagliatelle Carciofi e Limone, fresh tagliatelle with artichokes & lemon, this has a more delicate taste, I would recommend the one with Sausage, Mushroom and cream ……… of course I do 😜
We lingered there for quite a while chitchatting and enjoyed a nice bottle of Falanghina white wine, always good for lunch, at the end finished with espresso coffee, I am Italian I am very picky about my espresso, normally I really don’t like drinking espresso in restaurants as very often it is really bad and bitter but, our server Viviana, insisted that I should try it and she was right, it was good so, thumbs up for espresso as well. Viviana was really lovely, so well done on all fronts. I am already a regular and of course I will come back again for more @via_emilia9
