Our waitress, Sarah, was fabulous! Jill of all trades as she mixed and served drinks, waited on ALOT of tables, sprinted up stairs dozens of times AND despite servers being few, took it upon herself to reorder my Gnocchi Verde as I just mentioned “yes” they were delicious although not quite hot enough but not necessary to reheat. We LOVED our choice of the Tiramisu for dessert! AND it was complimentary as I had mentioned on reservation site that we were celebrating our Anniversary! Lovely unexpected surprise!!!!

You could show tip prices 15, 20, 22, and 25 percent to help customers. Also I was at a restaurant in New Orleans and they ask the women if they want a black napkin, it hides lipstick and food, really unique. Plus add raspberry ice tea it’s usually a hit.

This was our first visit to Mystic, but I had already heard about Via Emilia before I arrived. My experience at the restaurant did not disappoint! The Caesar salad, as well as the fish and ravioli entrees, were all delicious. We ordered a Willamette Valley Pinot Noir that complemented our food choices perfectly. Also, our server Chiara made sure we felt welcome and at home. We will definitely be back!

I have eaten here twice and will definitely be returning. The first time I ordered Bucatini, since I am a fan of artichokes. The portion was both generous and deliciously prepared. The Capesante was quite extraordinary. They lightly sautéed fresh Stonington sea scallops and served them with a squash and zucchini caponata, almonds and vinaigrette. Flavors were mouthwatering. I'll order it again. Servers are knowledgeable and friendly and service is prompt without making you feel rushed in any way. I'm hoping they will start serving lunch!

It was our first time at Via Emilia and we had a great experience. We made a reservation for 7:45. Although we weren't able to be seated until closer to 8:15, the host and bartender were quick to accommodate and make sure we had drinks and were comfortable while we waited. Our server, Joe, was wonderful. Food and drinks were delicious. We will be back!

Allison was a great server. Started with Polpetine beef and prosciutto meatballs with tomato sugo & baked ricotta and a Cesare Salad. Entrees Tagliolini with ragu bolognese & parmigiano reggiano and Pappardelle short rib ragu with rosemary and pecorino. For dessert Tiramisu, which was one of if not the best I ever had. The entire meal was Fantastic! A couple of Tito's and Peroni's made for a perfect night. This was our first time at Via Emilia's and we will be back. Thank you.
