“Very Good but Not Fine Dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014

Recently dined here after reading many positive reviews on tripadvisor. We called ahead to see if a table was available and were told we could be seated in twenty minutes. We arrived on time and were seated within a few minutes. The dining room is small, cozy, cramped (take your pick) and on this night there was a group of ladies having a birthday dinner so the noise level was more than desired. The food is prepared to order and is worth the wait...everything was fresh and very tasty. We will probably return for another visit but we prefer nice surroundings in addition to good food so we will hope for a quieter atmosphere when we visit.

“Best food in Mobile.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

I love this restaurant... My brother introduced me to this restaurant a few years ago, and when ever I am in town, I make sure that I stop in for a steak. They have other wonderful entrees, but their steak is my favorite! I like like my steak very well done - no pink - and at Via Emilia it is always cooked to perfection - tender and juicy even though it is well done.
I recommend the Barbaresco with the steak - it is my favorite of their red wines and the flavors compliment each other.
Also, if you get the chance to eat at Via Emilia, be sure to try the fried green tomatoes... Delicious!

“Great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

Me and my colleague both had the lamb, and it is by far the best meal i had in the US. Homemade and prepared with love, a rare case in this fastfood dominating country.
Kudos from Norway.
