The tagliatelle was disappointing. Veal chunks really not edible. It does seem that their kitchen is not as good as it was. Still a very congenial place to dine and schmooze. We hope the food returns to the marvelous level we are accustomed to.

While visiting my friend in Manhattan she suggested Via Emilia for dinner. As she frequently goes to this restaurant we all went with her recommendation of the Lasagne. Great choice! The service was good.

The food at Via Emelia's is OK. Nothing spectacular, but adequate. The truly disappointing thing about our experience there was the service. It was inattentive, at best. Two of our party were served a full five minutes after everyone else. Water glasses went unfilled, and...More

Flatiron District
