Another great meal. Highly recommend.
I love this place because of its chic atmosphere and outstanding food. The staff was very helpful and was willing to offer recommendations and explanations regarding the menu. The paste is excellent and is made in-house, daily.
The place is extremely nice. Gugliemo, the owner, is a real authentic Italian from Modena and the food he cooks is just authentic, high quality and awesome. I am Italian as well; and I can say that this restaurant and the quality of the food is among the best I have tried.
Been here many times, and always find a warm welcome, great food, lovely wines. Food very reasonably priced, exquisite Modenese. Brought a group of old friends together here, all loved it, and we could converse without yelling, an increasingly rare commodity!
Fun atmosphere, great food, good prices.
I would definitely recommend it!
Our meal was a huge disappointment. My husband’s skirt steak was over cooked and tough despite his request for medium rare. I was charged an extra $10 for a “half order” of spaghetti with plain tomato sauce to accompany my bland and mushy eggplant parmigiana. The waitress tried to help, but the management wouldn’t budge on the ridiculous overcharge. We won’t return.
good food with many choices. Casual and comfortable .
We live nearby, but this was our first time eating here. It was 7:30 on a Friday night but it was not busy, so the service was great but lacked any buzz or ambience. Lots of pasta choices - I had the lasagne and my wife had the tagliatelle. Both were good comfort food, but nothing special. $108 for 2 including a bottle of OK Chianti, so not expensive, but not inexpensive for what was a fairly basic dining experience.
This is one of my favorite places. It is about the food.
Another excellent dinner with friends. Great food and good service. Too bad the noise level was deafening Beyond deafening! Maybe during the week is a better choice.
The food is good, the prices are affordable. They give you a basket or two of warm focaccia to start, which is great. The fried gnocco is delicious, the pastas are fine. But the service, in an almost empty restaurant, was so indifferent as to seem rude. The waiter takes the drinks order only from two people out of a table of six, never brings cheese for the pasta, people have to flag him down to order individual drinks; it does not occur to him to ask everybody at the table if they need anything else. Via Emilia is reliable and affordable and perfect if you don't want to scream your head off. It's really a pity about the service.
Extremely disappointing experience. .. The food was terrible.
We had evening plan, so we here there for an early dinner. The restaurant was starting o fill up shortly before we left.....and it was getting a little noiiser... but I do;t know what the noise level would be if the restaurant was full.
Delicious food lovingly prepared. I think that any dish you have will be a winner. Friendly low keyed atmosphere. Generous portions. Interesting wines.
I love it here.
Highly enjoyable place. Nice music background. Lovely waiters. Clean, fresh place.
I go here every view months with friends. It's a great place. Food is excellent. Waiter is friendly and professional. The owner is also really nice.
One of my very favorite places
Been going for years
As always, the food is amazing. True modenese cuisine. A must: lasagne, borlengo, spongata!!! Oh hell, try them all, the entire menu is fantastic. Also, great Lambrusco wine! Can't wait until my next visit.
Always a favorite; friendly service; fresh ingredients; excellent pastas.
Excellent hand-made Italian dishes. Fabulous sauces. Attentive service. Very good lunch/dinner value.
Visited here based on a recommendation from a business associate.
Don't bother. This food was underwhelming in every way. We ordered a wide variety across 7 in our party. There are nothing to report as a highlight from the meal. We rated all dishes less than average. An appetizer described on the menu as Gnocchi arrived at the table unrecognizable to the entire party. The pasta dishes were not trendy nor simple nor traditional.
In a city full of choices, Skip it......you aren't missing a thing.
We celebrated our daughter's birthday; The food was amazing, and the service was outstanding. Our server/host Claudia was just delightful.
I love this restaurant ...it will be our new go to Italian restaurant.
Everything was perfect.
We routinely eat at Via Emilia. Food is delicious always. The specials consistently surprise and delight in their variety and complexity of flavor. Service is always courteous and attentive even on the busiest nights.
We told our friends visiting from Italy to meet us there since my husband, Mauro De Trizio, shot a movie there a few years ago with the owner. Great, great entrees, desserts, etc. Authentic food from Modena. Go there. It's excellent.
Poor quality food and expensive!
The food was far to be a good Italian meal..
And I am Italian, I know my food well.
Nice spur of the moment dinner made possible by OpenTable app. I tend to make reservations on the fly as we are heading out the door. Lobster ravioli was wonderful as usual. Other guests had salmon and veal. All were delicious. Large wine list. All good.
Just ok. The location is good and the service was great but the food was nothing to write home about. Had no problem getting a table though for 7:30 on a Saturday night.
A find in my neighborhood! I've passed it many times but never considered it until now. Much better than I expected. THX. Very pretty Room with tables nicely spaced. Excellent service. I'll be back. Possibly host a special birthday party here!
Food was excellent. Service was good without being intrusive. My favorite Italian in the city.
Took a friend for a birthday dinner. She is vegan, I am not. We were both able to find menu selections that were tasty and satisfying. Lasagna was very good.
Terrific food at amazingly reasonable prices.
Service a bit scattered but endearing.
We will definitely return. Many times.
the food and prices were OK, not remarkable. We enjoyed the sixties music on the sound track, played low enough that we could easily converse. Main course took a bit longer than it should have to arrive. Waiter was exceptionally helpful in figuring out our bill as though he had done separate checks.
If you like Italian this is a must. If you know enough to like Modenese Italian then you can't miss. The lasagna is off the charts. If he has grilled meats don't order anything else! Great basic Italian recipes and a great emphasis on regionality. Try anything with the aged balsamic and try the spongata- a recipe from medeival times!
Was a bit disappointed with my favorite dish the pumpkin tortelloni, in the past the pasta was thinner and melted in your mouth, this time I found it a bit undercooked and the pasta part way too thick. Still a great atmosphere and love the Lambrussco wine!
Outstanding food and service
The homemade pasta was fantastic! Everything was delicious. The server was wonderful and had many spot one suggestions. Thanks for a wonderful lunch!
Always reliable and delicious dinners. Our family always looks forward to visits to via emilia
Nice place, kind people! Perfect for every type of occasion! And the food is like at home in Italy! So everybody should try this restaurant!
Good food and nice staff Not too noisy and good location
I work in the neighboorhood and have been coming to via Emilia for years. The Italian food is regional and delicious !
