Lovely local place featuring some typical Italian fare for the unadventurous and others from the Emilia-Romagna Region. Pastas are house made and portions are a good size. Small but good wine selection with reasonable prices. Definitely a place to visit again and again.

We started with the octopus appetizer which was good. I had the lasagna and it was delicious! Hot and cheesy. Just wonderful. The others in our party seemed to enjoy their dish. We were just visiting so it's doubtful we'll ever go back, but I'd...More

My husband and I decided to go out for dinner at the last minute and as we haven't been to Via Emilia in a while we chose to go there. We started with prosciutto and mozzarella, then ordered pasta and desserts. We had a glass...More

Delicious food. Amazingly inexpensive if you stay off the specials that cost triple of what regular menu items cost. The place is small and a bit noisy, but the food is amazing and the service quite friendly. Perfect for relaxed week days meals.

The founders of Via Emilia 9 are four friends bonded by their passion for food and culture from Emilia Romagna. Francesco Prandini was born and raised in Modena where he lived for 32 years. While in Italy, he was a commercial agent for popular gastronomic companies, but then decided to start a new adventure in Florida with his wife Laura in 2012. Raffaele Cognome and Marco Cognome are two entrepreneurs from Ferrara, famous for their bread bakery. At home, they are known as the kings of the "Coppia Ferrarese" from Vassalli Group. Last but not least, his name is Wendy Cacciatori. He has 25 years of experience and owns a couple of restaurants around Bologna.What brought this group together was Francesco's catching enthusiasm. They all quickly realized they could work together to make a dream reality - bringing our tradition and flavors to the Unites States... And why not start from Miami!
