We had nice service and I was surprised at the extensive menu in a strip-mall restaurant. The food was much better than I expected and was in fact quite good. I had a pear & spinach salad and the eggplant lasagna. It was very tasty! The decor is nice -- we had a very pleasant experience.

The food was just average, but the atmosphere tries to portray an upper end restaurant. I ordered chicken Marsala and the chicken was thin and tasted like it was poor quality. The Marsala sauce was very salty and tasted like it was not freshly made and out of a can. The service was good.
Probably will not return.

Excellent selection of Italian dishes, including fowl,fish and red meat. Courteous service with excellent knowledge of the menu's ingredients and method of preparation. Dining areas are well decorated but a bit large. Ambience could be a bit warmer. Prices are reasonable considering the excellent selection and final presentation. Fresh pasta made every morning. Good wine list and recommendations. Attractive and modern bar with a generous choice of fine liquors, liqueurs and cocktails. Via Emilia is located in a quiet area of the Woodlands with ample parking. Very popular with local residents. Chef has extensive experience in the preparation of italian cuisine especially from the Emilia-Romagna area of Italy (known for it superior cuisine), where her family originated.

After leaving 24 hr fitness I was famished and always wanted to stop in to see this restaurant located in a strip shopping area. On the outside with darkened windows, you expect a casual restaurant, but step in and you will find a beautiful relaxing formal atmosphere. I ordered the lunch menu pork tenderloins with asparagus and mashed potatoes and a side salad. I had their Chianti. The food was fresh, wonderfully cooked to perfection and well seasoned. The side garlic bread was a nice change from rolls. The portions were generous, so I had no room for dessert, but the selections are worth a trip for that and coffee alone!

We eat here about every 3 tp 4 month between our travels and continue to enjoy the food and atmosphere. Operated by an Italian family you get good Italian food. Today we ate Sunday Brunch and I had the LS Pork Medallions (excellent) my spouse had the Braised Beed Short Ribs. Nicolas was excellent with his service. They have music on Wed to Sat evenings and plenty of parking.
