Average food, average atmosphere, average service, and nothing special. Location is convenient, but would recommend many other restaurants in The Woodlands.

We went on my birthday, but did not tell them it was. We didn't want any fuss or free dessert!! The food was amazing. I was kind of boring, as they had some creative choices, and went with lasagne. It was the best I've had in my 36 years on this earth!! And that's a bold statement! My fiancée had chicken Parmesan and he cleaned his plate. Our server was Luis, ask for him... You won't regret it! He made sure we were happy and was very sincere! They have a nice big bar area also with TV's that we will be back to utilize for Football season! Great place! Can't wait to go back and try something new!!

Move over Macaroni Bar & Grille and Carrabba's....there's a new Italian restaurant and they mean business!!! Via Amelia is a wonderful restaurant with authentic Italian recipes. The waitstaff was vey knowledgeable regarding their menu and the newer wines to be paired with our meal. Very quiet...great for a romantic dinner or a business dinner as you will not be interrupted by pushy waitstaff wanting to take your plate every time you put your fork down. Broad range of desserts as well as coffees offered. Seriously thinking about having my son's wedding rehearsal dinner here...it was that impressive! http://viaemiliarestaurant.com/

Enjoyed a good meal here within a nice upscale yet neighborhood ambience. there was even music played by a one man ensemble. The staff was knowledgeable, professional and attentive and friendly....the menu was large and full of basic and creative options! The meals were tasty, good portion sized and served hot. We' recommend if you're in the area.... Worth the ride from route 45 area.
