Usually good food and service but not this time. One of two appetizers was cold. Lasagna was luke warm, Alfredo cold. Our waiter has 8-9 tables and was stretched too thin to give prompt attention. Very disappointing.

We always love coming here. The food is excellent and the owner always comes out to chat and makes you feel at home. The bread pudding is a must have.

Great food. Service was slow and we had to remind the waiter about our food. That said, we still had a pretty good night with friends.

My experience was awful. Next time I visit, I will make sure I don’t make a reservation prior because they don’t even use these to hold tables - we go quite often and we even had to wait an hour for a table, ended up sitting at the bar. We will not be returning for a while.

Went here for date night/birthday for my wife. Absolutely amazing food! The wait staff was attentive, the atmosphere was great, and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was packed on a Saturday evening but we didn't feel cramped. With that many people the noise level was elevated but we didn't have to shout to hear each other. The wine selection is massive and has something for every taste and price point. I would highly recommend the restaurant.

Fantastic place for a date night. Took my wife here once before a few years ago, & I'm glad we came back. The food and wine were fantastic, & the service was excellent. Highly recommended.

LOVE Via Emilia. One of our favorite Woodlands restaurant. The return of Omar makes Via Emilia that much better. He's the best waiter ever. He, not only is the best waiter, he REMEMBERS us even after we haven't been to the restaurant for a while. That's nice.
