Did not realize they did brunch on Sunday's so we went on a whim. We were fortunate to get a table in this small dining room so I'd advise reservations. Service was a tad slow but we were in no hurry, enjoyed our coffee and conversation. I had the praline French toast...excellent. And the unexpected side of cheese grits were super creamy and yummy. The dinner menu looked good so we will go back soon to give that a try.

Small house...nicely done...fine dining...great chef, great menu, great service. We call it Via's and it is one of our date night places. I've eaten there with my wife and friendship ever the beginning years ago and we have never been disappointed. If you want a seriously delicious meal or even an order out...Via's is an exceptional place to enjoy your company and excite your taste buds. Dishes always include filet, grouper/fish, poultry, and fine pasta, great salad...wine/drinks and specials

Via Emilia is situated directly in front of University of South Alabama on Old Shell Rd in West Mobile. The cuisine is traditional Italian, and the portions are more than ample.
Try the Veal Rcatta or the Lasagna both were exceptional. Will definitely visit again to try another of the daily blackboard menu items...

Situated in an old house directly across from University of South Alabama on Old Shell Road, Via Emilia is well located in West Mobile. With a Blackboard menu listing the daily specials,the food is predominately Italian recipes served in the north of Italy. Delicious meals such as Veal Rcatta and Lasagna . Excellent for a couple or groups no more than eight people, The restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating, but unless you are truly fond of the warm weather. I would suggest avoiding outside dining until early spring or late fall. All in all a wonderful place with excellent food.

The atmosphere was oh so nice. There were 4 in our party. 3 of us had the Shrimp and scallops over pasta. The other had the eggplant parmesan. Our food was absolutely the best. Our server, Bruce was very attentive and on the spot. We all had a wonder dinner.
