Amazing food I usually have my birthday dinner here each year, always a good time. Great service. The wine selection is great, they have a number of Lambruscos, which is rare.

Pros: wine selection

Cons: no credit card

It's so easy for Italian food to be awful and overpriced. But this is one of the best I've been to. I'd say it was up there with Supper for affordable Italian. The location is a little inconvenient but at least there aren't a bunch of

New restaurant focused on cuisine in the Modena region of Italy. Start with the Lambrusco "champagne" as an apertif it is unusual and tasty. The lambrusco goes well with Gnocco fritto and prosciutto di parma. We also tried the eggplant

Had dinner here for a friend's birthday last night. Restaurant was quite empty upon arrival, but quickly filled. The wait staff were extremely friendly and attentive. Lambrusco was very tasty and at only $30/bottle, can't be beat. Had

went for lunch closer to 2pm. hostess/waitress was unfriendly and uninterested. she had marginal english skills that she didn't compensate with better service or care. she walked away after taking only two of the four drink orders.

For the price and quality of food, i would recommend this place. I tried the Tortelloni and it's very good. Also tried their tuna pasta special at evening. Althought the tuna was a bit on the fishy side, the pasta and sauce made up for

Pros: Price, food

New location is much nicer than the old one and you get an overall decent meal for the money. I've not had anything here that would make me think specifically of coming back, but if I'm in the neighborhood and hungry for Italian, I'd go

VIA EMILIA IS NOT CLOSED! It just moved around the corner to 47 East 21st Street between Broadway and Park Avenue South. To die for: Lasagna, gnocco fritto and several choices of Lambrusco. And a terrific value too. Great for meeting

We only waited a few minutes before we were seated, and the menu looked promising. We were given a bread basket and the bread looked like someone had taken a bite out of it and put it back in, so we passed that over. The appetizer was good

stop by this place. But only if you are in the area. Don't consider this place a gem that is worth travelling to. The service is probably hit or miss - we had sufficient service but the table next to us didn't - they had to keep asking

This place has excellent pasta dishes. It's a great, inexpensive choice when you're in the area. Service is a little slow, even though the restaurant is small, so sit back and enjoy your company!

This is a "fine" restaurant--nothing was spectaular. Based on reviews, I was expecting it to either be super-cheap with good food (a good value) or typically-priced with fantastic food (an even better value and rare gem). My experience

Via Emilia really deserves the praise it gets for being a gem in the midst of the high profile and high priced restaurants in its neighborhood (not saying that there aren't several restaurants in that grouping worth visiting...). Lambrusco

Pros: lambrusco, prices, unpretentious

Cons: sometimes a wait, can get noisy

The bill was less $100 for four us. We all had a glass of wine and shared an appetizer. There is a variety of tortellini and all are fabulous. The wait is kinda crappy but totally worth it. AND they won't seat your party unless you are

There are no reservations, so plan for an early dinner to avoid wait times. Once seated, the place can get a wee bit loud, but waiters are wonderful and will never rush a table, even if there is a line out the door and onto the

this place is amazing, once your wait is over. its cute and small for the young crowd's liking, but the food is beyond amazing for the price. DONT EVER TAKE THE BLACK SPAGHETTHI WITH CALAMARI OFF THE MENU! For a mere $8.95, it is to die

The place is small, and is first-come first-serve. Won't seat you until you're all there. The food was quite good, and the prices were really reasonable. If you avoid peak times (weekend nights), this is a great place for italian.

Crowd is young. Food is not what you get at every other little Italian joint. Truly reflects its regional theme--even the wine list. Service is casual but friendly. Big drawback is the noise level--when we first arrived, it sounded
