Italian friends recommended us this restaurant. We had good time. Food was simple but tasty as if you were eating from the Nonna house. Service was very friendly. Be careful though if you ask the pasta with truffle since it becomes very expensive. But truffles...More

It's not glitzy---but Bravisimo to ownership--The pasta is home made...White truffles are in season--and their paired dishes are terrific and as good as it gets...and fair and reasonable prices. The tortellini is a prize--home made and as if you wee in Bolonga, Italy. The flat...More

Here at Via Emilia, I had an amazing experience of Italian food. The staff was friendly and also gave us suggestions of what to it. The place is quite close to South Beach as well. I would recommend this place.

This is a keeper. The restaurant is in an ugly strip mall on 16th street - so you would never expect it to be such a gem. The owners and staff are so friendly and accommodating and serve unexpected, yet simple and absolutely delicious food....More

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!
