Into the Food Valley



Once upon a time an Italian guy proud to be from Emilia-Romagna region, up-north Italy, the region where the home-made egg pasta was originally invented, decided to create a whole restaurant using every single product, pasta recipe, beer and wine that come maniacally and exclusively from his region. 



Covering the typical fresh pasta dishes from each Emilian city hand-made in front of you following the original Grandma’s own recipe and maintaining an outstanding value.

Also Launching the real Gnocco Fritto in London, the typical gently-fried bread to enjoy with meat&cheese.



Offering just 40 covers, Via Emilia is intimate yet light and airy; with its traditional white marble and dark stained wood, the interior combines the conventional with quirky use of aged steel, copper and caged displays adding a modern twist to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. At 5 minutes walk from Old Street station and 10 from Liverpool Street.



We'd love to have 1000 covers but we can only accommodate 40 so in order to sit everyone this

is our booking policy:

  • WALK-INS: We always keep some tables open for walk-ins, this is why we never book up the whole restaurant.  If you find the queue don't worry, you will still be able to get your gnocco fritto in a short time.  We operate a "first come first serve” system. The earlier you come the more chances of getting a table straight away, we’re open all day!

  • GROUPS OF 8 people and up to 40: please email us viaemilia@food-roots.com with all the details of your party and we will get back to you!


  • SAME DAY reservations: please call +44(0)2076130508. DO NOT USE the system here below for same day reservations, we might not have time to view them.

  • FOLLOWING DAYS reservations: please don't call us but DO USE the system here below leaving your correct details and mobile number and we will confirm the availability asap. Also note that all our tables have one and a half hour turn time for tables of 5 and smaller and 2 hours for tables of 6 and larger



Our restaurant takes the name from an ancient Roman road that
crosses the region connecting the main cities.

Emilia Romagna is considered the Food Valley in Italy thanks among all to its worldwide renowned pastas such as Tortellini, Lasagne and Bolognese sauce and to its charcuterie and cheese such as Parma Ham and Parmesan.
So take this vibrant journey with us!
