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.

    From the moment we walked in the front door, the wonderful hostess, the amazing smells emanating from the kitchen, to our server, as well as the vast choices of fresh made pasta, sauces, truffles, incredible wines by the glass, we are definitely coming back again.

    Consistently great clean dishes. Loves the salmon special, not what I usually order but must say it was Perfectly prepared done to the charred crispy skin 😋. The cavatelli pasta with pumpkin and bolognese sauce is consistently good - fresh pasta makes al the difference .

    Appetizers were great. Service was awful. Maybe because there were so few people in restaurant the staff got super lazy. Only 5 slices of bread served to a table of 6. Had to ask for more. Had to ask for water twice. Had to ask for another bottle of wine because they paid no attention to the table. Was never asked how was my dinner (the lasagna was barely warm, for 3 of us. ). The filets were delicious, the deserts were good. Service was not.

    Very cute little spot outside of usual touristy areas. I really have been dying to try this place for while, it looks so authentic and cute. I came with my dad so we came early, 6pm on a Saturday, but the place was dead even when we left around 7. The food was truly disappointing. Some very basic boring bread came cut up in a paper bag ahead of the meal. A vegetarian, I got the truffle pasta and it was basically noodles in butter sauce with some shave truffle on top. The shaved truffle was exciting as she grated a half a truffle on my plate at the table but it didn’t improve the flavor of the dish at all. Very simple and bland, and cold as well. She took it back to reheat but it got cold again right away, maybe those noodles don’t hold heat. My dad got the chicken and he enjoyed it. The potatoes were the highlight of the meal, I would order a side of those any time. Sadly I would not recommend or come back here, but maybe it’s more of a carnivore type place. Perhaps the meat and seafood are amazing so look to other reviews for that.

    Lasagna tasted like hamburger helper. The server spilled red wine all over us — my boyfriend was wearing a white shirt. Instead of comping our meal or wine after ruining our evening, she only offered a $10 discount. That won’t even cover drycleaning! Never again.

    The service was terrific. We did the less expensive spice menu. We had: artichoke and arugula salad and octopus appetizers. My husband loved the octopus. The salad was ok, very wilted. Next course: lasagna and clam pasta. Lasagna was very dense and rich. Salty (we like salty). It was good but I prefer a better layered lasagna. So my rating is slightly biased. The pasta was strange. The tiniest clams in the shells. If you can get to the pasta without accidentally biting a tiny clam shell…the pasta part was great! Dessert. We had both the tiramisu and chocolate salami. Tiramisu was more of a bowl of whipped cream. Not good. Chocolate salami was ok. The wine was great but very over priced. We would definitely come back for pasta dishes without clams!

    This restaurant used to be great but not any more! A dinner earlier tonight ( a small dish of pasta and two glasses of wine per person) run close to $200, obscene! When I commented to the waitress that the pricing is unreasonable for what we had she responded ‘do you not live in Miami?’. Answer: yes madame we do, and we also earn money here. We make a gold living but $100 per person for a dish of mediocre pre cooked pasta and two glasses of cheap wine, is too much, not just in Miami, anywhere! Definitely not going back, these people are after dumb money.

    We had reservations for outside dining but none of the tables had umbrellas in this unbearable heat! Amazing! They gave us a table inside that was off to the side so that worked. The menu they gave us was out of date and current prices were much higher..as much as 25% in some cases. They did honor the original prices. The food was good, the portions very small and the prices way out of line for similar restaurants.

    I discovered this restaurant while looking for a locksmith. There was one next door, and after getting my new keys and feeling lunch hungry, I was delighted to know that there - a few steps away - was Via Emilia 9 with its open arms (and tables) waiting for me and my friends. We tried the burrata salad, the sauteed mussels, and the tortellini with creamy white sauce. Every one of these orders was mouth-watering and exquisitely delicious. I felt transported to the Emilia region of Italy. Plus the server was very nice and accommodating. Her cute Italian accent was charming. We have decided we're going back for more.

    The food was good but the portions were skimpy. My wife ordered something she didn’t care for and they replaced it at no charge. The service was excellent. My only real complaint was that they allow dogs inside and we had one right next to us, my wife has an allergy to dog hair.
