It is the second South Florida location for the brand. The first Via Emilia opened on South Beach six years ago.

Owned by celebrated Chef Wendy Cacciatori and wife Valentina Imbrenda,  guests enjoy a variety of Northern Italian signature dishes paired with some of the region’s best bubbly and wine.

All pastas are made on premises and boiled, not in water, but in their homemade chicken broth to add more flavor.
